The program applies full throttle 200' from the runway when landing, using Logitech Extreme 3D Pro HOTAS.
The problem started when I had about 480 hours of flying time. I have mostly easy setting in options. AI-assisted landing is turned off. All I can do is shut off the engine, do a dead stick landing, then start the engine and taxi to parking. The problem does not appear when using Logitech Yoke, Throttle Quadrant, and Rudder Pedals.
Your scenario certainly seems perplexing. It's initially easy to pin the problem on the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro HOTAS, but given your details, I believe there's more to it. You've certainly opened up an intriguing can of worms here!
The HOTAS (Hands On Throttle-And-Stick) system is essentially a physical interface allowing pilots to control their aircraft's engines and flight controls simultaneously without having to take their hands off the throttle or stick. In a real-world setting, the HOTAS doesn't intrinsically "know" when you're 200' from the runway.
The problem you've described leans more towards a misconfiguration with the autopilot or your simulator's settings, rather than the hardware itself. The reason behind this is that the throttle control in a simulator like Microsoft Flight Simulator (2020 release) is typically controlled by the sim's internal logic, not the joystick.
A few things to consider:
Also, don't forget to check for software updates, both for the simulator and the joystick drivers. This could also solve any compatibility issues that might be causing this unusual behavior.
I hope this gives you a starting point for troubleshooting. Let us know how you get on!
