I’m at a loss with some of the stuff. I’ve bought the red arrows plane and added freeware a350 neo off flightsim.to - I have the Saitek x52 and the throttle quadrant just doesn’t work with either of them.
On the red arrows if I push the throttle forward with the mouse and flip to quadrant it just rolls the engine to idle. On the a350 if I push the quadrant forwards it puts engine 2 up but rolls engine 1 to idle. Even puts it in reverse if I’m on the ground. I’ve mapped the quadrant to control engine axis, engine 2 axis and engine 3 and 4 axis. Doesn’t change a ■■■■ thing. There’s probably more planes out there I will have issues with.
The A330 gets its throttle calibration from the FBW A320.
You do need to have that installed to get proper throttle operation for the A330
On single engine 3rd party aircraft, in most cases, you do need, as mentioned, to remap your controller to Throttle 1, not just throttle.
That often presents another issue, as the default single engine aircraft seem to prefer the “throttle” command, so often a separate profile is required.
