Cant get the throttle on my joystick to work right, help plz



I can't seem to get the throttle on my joystick to work properly with FS2004. When doing the flight lessons it says to set my joystick throttle to 3/4 which I do, but when it's my turn to fly, I push my throttle all the way up but that doesnt set the throttle in the game to full throttle, and when I pull my joystick throttle all the way back, it doesnt set the planes throttle to idle.

It's a Logitech extreme 3d joystick.

Any clues how to get it to work properly?

Have you calabirated it yet?


Yes, and in the calibration of win xp it shows the throttle meter go from 0 to full smoothly as it should. But in the sim it only goes down to about quarter throttle and up to 3/4 throttle, never full, and never idle.


Had that same problem, when I calibrated it would read from 0 to 1 (or 100 whatever max is), but when in game I couldn't either go idle or full. You have to adjust the null zone setting for your throttle in FS.
