Default X52 Throttle bump/detent?

I just got the Saitek X52 and its awesome however on the throttle when you push it up all the way you get a slight resistance or bump, also when you push it all the way down the same happens near the bottom end of the throttle, is this a feature ?

I've read this may be what's called a detent?.

It is a feature to 'recognise' certain engine modes. Atleast thats how they mean it, it is up to you what you do with it. When you push your throttle forward to before the resistance, it is supposed to represent full throttle, and when you push it after the resistance so to say, you go afterburner. When you put it back, before the resistance is supposed to mean minimum throttle and after the resistance would mean Idle/Reverse thrust. However, it is up to you how you use and configure this.

I hope this made things clear, if not let me know, and I will try to make a image.

Hi,

Progressive throttle control
Super smooth action with metal tension
adjustment and detents for programming idle
(0-20%) and afterburner (80-100%) settings.

I did one on my YT channel in the hardware and software section. It' in German, but maybe it helps though. Just click on the banner in my sig.

best regards,

My best advice is to not use the profiling software at all.

For me it just created instability, and the HOTAS would crash and lose settings mid-flight.

Setting everything up in DCS options instead worked much better for me, and I had no problems after I did that.
