Non-functional throttle axis in Hot Start at Runway.


Recommended Posts

Is there a known problem with incapability move a throttle, before I start making bug reports?

 

I reset all bindings and DCS sees throttle axis properly (as in any other module) moving.

But in Harrier the throttle doesn't move. I need to unlatch the throttle to off to get it moving between off and idle but engine shuts off then.

I can bind another axis that moves nozzle lever properly as throttle but throttle doesn't move anywhere.

 

Same time as well many other things goes crazy, but Harrier is like stuck to "limbo".

Thank to all. I have not flown Harrier for a while and previously I have had the cold start or air start, but now I made the hot start on runway.

 

It is odd for me that a parking brake is ON when you are hot and ready to go on runway. Hot on parking slot would make sense, and of course cold-start but not on the runway.

Like if a F/A-18C or F-16CM would have their parking brakes ON when starting from the runway, it would be odd for all, don't you think?

 

Or is it a standard procedure for Harrier pilots to activate the parking brake after taxiing to runway and preparing for take-off?

I don't know about Real Life tm  but I think that it is a concession to gameplay since the change was made to allow the Harrier to taxi on idle power. In real life, there is no such thing as jumping into a hot jet on the runway with everything running. I would imagine real pilots would just hold the wheel brakes after taxiing to the runway.

I don't know about the F/A-18C or Harrier* but applying the parking brake while awaiting takeoff clearance is standard procedure for the Mirage i.e. there have been 2 Mirage accident reports (2008 and 2013) were the pilot "forgot" to release the brake.

The Harrier's parking brake throttle stop prevents such an accident.

 

*The 2012 AV-8B VMAT-203 Flight Syllabus Guide, says a common taxiing error is

• Forgetting to set the parking brake and turn off the NWS (anti-skid switch – on) when stopped.
