Default Wheel brakes not fully applying?

Can someone please post a picture of what the controls indicator with the left and right wheel brakes fully depressed should look like? I am having some sort of trouble where I cannot power up to 90 before take off because the wheel brakes aren't keeping me in place. On the controls indicator the gauge for them only goes up about a third of the way and I don't know if that's right or not. I have mfg crosswinds and in the calibration software everything seems good and in the DCS axis bindings menu the little white bar at the bottom of the bound axis seems to travel across that range properly. IDK what's happening. Thanks for any help.

If ED modeled them correctly the brakes automatically release when the throttle is advanced beyond 85-90%(I can't remember the actual parameters though). So, in short, it's normal.

You mean parking brake? Or are wheel brakes also electronicaly controlled?

The parking brake turns off as soon as you move the throttle right now.

I mean the wheel/toe brakes. Like in the taxi/takeoff training mission when on the runway and you're instructed to hold the brakes and advance the throttle to 90%. The plane wouldn't stay still at that RPM even with the toe brakes fully depressed.

I’d have a hard time believing the brakes could hold the aircraft stationary at that high of a power setting in real life, but maybe I’m wrong.

I have to use the W key to hold the brakes during run up as the toe brakes aren't that effective.

In one of the two tutorials at the moment it asks you to apply the brakes and to advance the throttle to 90% and check for function on the corresponding panels. I cannot get the brakes to hold for it at that level of power as requested by the tutorial so i just pressed space-bar to continue.

In my testing I think its the left brake. I've had another verify that the amount of braking appears much better on the right over the left. If you try rolling and jam on left break vs right we get different behavior. I also think when I got to 80%+ power it starts rotating right (because left break isn't holding).

Is the TPOD fitted to your test aircraft and the right brake is holding better due to there being more weight on that side?
