Warthog Throttle - Get throttle to start/stop at TOP of Idle detent?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Posted in hardware also, but as the BF-109K is the plane i'm working on... For Jet sims the "Idle Detent" is great but the it's a bit of a PITA in the 109 during TO/Landing. I already have the "push-through" AB mod so that end is fine, is there a way to disable the Idle detent part of the throttle throw (or remove the detent in software or hardware) to make the whole range of travel smooth from the top of the Idle detent to full throw? I have messed with Deadzone and Saturation and on the Options/Controls page (see pic) I get exactly the movement I want (Idle detent does nothing, then it goes full bar with the remaining throttle throw). In the K's cockpit however the idle jumps to 1500 RPM and I have to use the Idle Detent area to lower it..

Ok, solved. Just found the Warthog Throttle calibration software here. By ignoring the part which told me to set throttle to OFF (which means to lift the Idle Detent and go full back) and just leaving it at the Idle Detent stop, I now have full throttle from the Idle Stop to buried past AB! I have lost the "Idle Detent" capability (in BMS anyway) but really don't care as it's only used for Ramp starts and Alt-i works fine..

Just tested in DCS BF-109, IL2 and BMS.. all is A-OK!
