Let me make sure I am following...you're then proposing that people take the detent in and out based on whatever jet they are flying? Not a bad idea really, given how quickly it can be done...probably more of a hassle than many people are willing to go through though.

Yes - exactly!
It's a less-than-30-second-job to switch over.. So it doesn't compute in my upstairs area why you wouldn't do it

I, personally, don't disagree...I will be changing between grips shortly once I have a Gunfighter Pro with a MCG, Warthog Grip, Hornet/Harrier grip, and Tomcat grip. Shouldn't be too difficult to add an extra 30 seconds to the changeover process when necessary.

Ok Gents,
I purchased the push through AB detent from Debolestis, I'm using it on the F-5 with the recommended curves from this thread (and thoroughly enjoying it). I was perusing the F-5 manual this morning and stumbled across this gem:

Afterburner System
Afterburner operation is initiated by advancing throttle beyond MIL mark. Afterburner lightoff on the ground should occur within approximately 5 seconds.
NOTE. The game provides the ability to restrict the movement of the throttles to MIL (imitation of spring detents). To use this feature (spring detent) it is required to assign key in the CONTROL SETTINGS control parameter THROTTLE RANGE (Press to change).

does anyone know how to use this key/function in DCS?

It’s been a while since I flew the F-5, but I would think that detent key would have to be ON for you to advance into AB. I’d also think you’d have to use TARGET for this to work (I’m not against that, I do it in all non-A-10C aircraft).

For what it is worth, these are my settings for the F/A-18C:

0 - 6 - 16 - 24 - 33 - 43 - 57 - 67 - 80 - 90 - 100

I also modded the detent by filing down the leading edge slowly so I can push through into the A/B range without having to use the lifts.

If it doesnt match your detent 100%, just wiggle the numbers a little.

This is the Hornet curve Im using for my filed down detent.
- User curve
- Slider
0 - 7 - 15 - 24 - 34 - 45 - 57 - 70 - 84 - 95 - 100

GUys sorry for the stupid question: do I have to remove the A/b separator between left/right throttle in order to use the A/B detend with the curves mentioned here?
