    saitek throttle quadrant setup

    Hi, apologies for the delay... So here's the good news. Try the attached FlyWithLUA script and let me know if it's working for you. Once again, please read the section at the top of the file which will describe what you need to do to map your joystick button to toggle the reversers. The "debug" mode is on by default so you can see what is happening... just change the debug_on = true to false to disable the on screen display. Enjoy. ixeg_single_throttle_control.lua

    I'll have a look at adapting the script to work on a single lever... Will let you know once done.

    saitek throttle quadrant setup

    Glad it's working... I have a Lua script which will activate the thrust reversers independently for each throttle when you pull the lever into the bottom switch position (assuming you use 2 levers to control both engines independently). This will simply "toggle" the reverser on/off and then you simply push the lever forward again to control the amount of reverse thrust you need. Pulling it back into the bottom switch position will deactivate the reverser and normal throttle control will return. This gives you full control on the amount of reverse thrust... not just all or nothing. I also have a Lua script which adds the fuel cutoff commands to X-Plane and I have the 4 buttons beneath the 2 levers mapped to control the fuel cutoff levers. So for the 2 right most levers button T3 is fuel engine 1 on and T4 is fuel engine 1 off and T5 is fuel engine 2 on and T6 is fuel engine 2 off.

    Ah, ok... As far as I know you cannot assign an axis to the fuel levers through the default X-Plane joystick configuration. Attached find a basic FlyWithLua script which you can use to map your joystick axis to the IXEG fuel cutoff levers. Please read the text at the top of the script file which will explain some basic info about what to do... and let me know if you need help. I tested it on my rig and it's working. Just as a thought... the way I have my throttle quadrant set up for the IXEG is as follows: The 2 right most levers (mixture and prop) are configured as throttle 1 and throttle 2 for the IXEG. Then I use a Lua script which will activate the thrust reversers independently for each throttle when you pull the lever into the bottom switch position. This will simply "toggle" the reverser on/off and then you simply push the lever forward again to control the amount of reverse thrust you need. Pulling it back into the bottom switch position will deactivate the reverser and normal throttle control will return. Works a charm. I also have a Lua script which adds the fuel cutoff commands to X-Plane and I have the 4 buttons beneath the 2 levers mapped to control the fuel cutoff levers. Not as nice as having an axis, but then again the fuel is either on or off in my books. Let me know should you be interested in the other scripts. Jean ixeg_fuel_lever_axis.lua

    Hi, I'm not sure what you mean by "put the blue in number 1 and red in number 2". Please explain in a bit more detail what you're trying to accomplish and I'll see if I can maybe assist.

    Playback error

    It would be nice if LR could somehow "disable" dataref checks against hardware whenever replay mode is active... just a thought.

    AT Disconnect

    Your guess is as good as mine...

    AT Disconnect

    I tried with the create_positive_edge_trigger( 21, "ixeg/733/MCP/mcp_at_disengage_act", 0, 1 ) and it's working as expected. Is there any particular reason that you need the value to reset back to 0? I did find a way around it though... but it might just be a hack. Simply create both a positive_edge_flip and negative_edge_flip on the same button. This will work exactly like pressing the virtual AT disconnect button on the throttle. create_positive_edge_flip( 21, "ixeg/733/MCP/mcp_at_disengage_act", 0, 1, 0 ) create_negative_edge_flip( 21, "ixeg/733/MCP/mcp_at_disengage_act", 0, 1, 0 )

    AT Disconnect

    Yes, it's weird. I also get the "rattling" with both the AT and AP disconnect manipulators. If I use the "ixeg/733/MCP/mcp_toga_act" for example then it's working fine. I'll play around and see if I can find anything...

    AT Disconnect

    Makes sense, I never really looked into the create_switch commands. I will see if I can get the AT disengage to work like this...

    AT Disconnect

    Ok, but you'll still need to map a button to a command irrespective of whether the command is already available or coded via LUA. So in effect what you need is to be able to map the button to different commands depending on the plane you're flying... if I understand it correctly. Not sure this is possible, but maybe someone has a solution.

    AT Disconnect

    Why not just use the Disengage AT command already supplied by IXEG to map to your buttons? You will find it under ixeg - 733 - autopilot in the X-plane Joystick mapping screen. No need for a LUA script.

    AT Disconnect

    May I ask what you're trying to achieve with your LUA script?

    Rejected Take Off procedure

    Thanks for the info Tom... no wonder my neck hurts after a rejected takeoff.

    Rejected Take Off procedure

    I just tried this... got mixed results. But there is definitely brake input from RTO with AT activated. I think you should be well over 80 knots before pulling the throttles back. Strange thing is that the parking brake engages whenever you do an RTO. Is this normal Jan?
