The throttle goes to full power after landing

Bill Gallagher Guest

I'm using the Logitec flight yoke and throttle quadrant. All the controls work fine before and during flight. After touchdown I have an issue with the throttle going to full power in spite of the fact the throttle lever in the quadrant is full off. Does anyone have a similar problem or a solution? Thanks.

Hi there,

It's quite concerning to hear about the throttle issue you're experiencing with your Logitech flight yoke and throttle quadrant while using Microsoft Flight Simulator (2020 release). I understand how this can be both frustrating and potentially hazardous during your virtual landings. Let's see if we can find a solution to this problem.

First and foremost, it's important to make sure you have the latest drivers and software for your Logitech flight yoke and throttle quadrant. You can find the necessary updates on the official Logitech support website. Keeping your hardware up-to-date ensures better compatibility and fewer issues with the flight simulator.

Once you've confirmed that your drivers and software are up-to-date, let's focus on possible configuration issues within Microsoft Flight Simulator. Here are a few steps to investigate:

  1. Launch Microsoft Flight Simulator and navigate to the Options menu, then select Controls.
  2. Ensure that your Logitech flight yoke and throttle quadrant are selected in the drop-down menu at the top of the screen.
  3. Filter the control bindings by selecting Throttle from the filter menu.
  4. Check for any conflicting or incorrect bindings related to throttle control, especially the Throttle Axis and Decrease Throttle commands. Make sure the bindings correspond to the correct axes or buttons on your hardware.
  5. If you find any incorrect or duplicate bindings, correct them or clear the conflicting bindings by selecting the specific binding and clicking on Clear Current Input.

After adjusting your control bindings, save the changes and test your throttle quadrant in a new flight to see if the issue has been resolved. If you're still experiencing the problem, you may want to consider resetting your control bindings to their default settings and reconfiguring them from scratch.

I hope this helps you to identify and resolve the issue with your throttle quadrant. Should you need further assistance or have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Happy flying!
