Default HOTAS Warthog IDLE/CUTOFF not working

Hi everyone.

I would like to know if have some issue on the IDLE/OFF in the control options with HOTAS Warthog?

When I'm starting the engine, I move the HOTAS Warthog right throttle from cutoff to idle and, in the game, the throttle move some kind of throttle lever, but don't move foward, I need to use the keystroke SHIFT HOME/ALT HOME to do that.

In the A-10C, when I move my throttle from cutoff to idle, it works fine.

Do I need some changes in the settings/I'm doing something wrong?

Best regards.

You have to bind the emulated button-push-actions, actuated through putting your throttle levers to their cut-off positions, to the cut-off switches in your settings.

When your throttle levers are configured with the idle-to-cut-off indents, when you move a throttle lever back passed the indent to the cut-off position, it emulates button 29 or 30 being pressed; I think the right lever is button 29 and the left 30.
When you hit the wrong button on take-off

What Orso says. Go in the Input Settings and find the controls, named something like Right (or Left) Throttle IDLE/OFF, it should be something like that. Double click on the keybind cell for your HOTAS Warthog and then just move your physical throttle and the game will recognize the button press.
