  1. Problem solved! I removed the Saitek driver referened in the link below and now my throttles behave normally. Having the throttle go dead as soon as I lowered my flaps using the Saitek multi-panel was a major clue. http://www.saitek.com/uk/blog/index.php/x-plane-drivers-1-2-5-released-flight-instrument-panel-support
  2. Ben, this is useful. Thanks for the reply. I will spend some time this weekend troubleshooting by playing with the contents of my plugins folder. If I can discover the precise combination causing the failure, I'll report back here.
  3. I'm surprised you haven't gotten a real response for this issue. I have a Saitek yoke and throttle that exhibits the same flaky behavior. I came to the forum hoping it was a well known issue and that there would be a simple fix. I guess not. To be clear, in case anyone from IXEG or XAviation is reading: All of my other planes including my JARDdesign A320 work just fine with my throttle setup. I also noticed that when the 737 classic's throttles stop working with my throttles, the X-Plane settings panel show that X-Plane is still reading the input. When I move the throttles, the sliders reflect the full range of input with a green bar for each throttle, moving between zero and 100 percent. This looks like an issue with the 737 not X-Plane or my hardware. Please help.
  4. Thanks guys, removing the prefs did the trick. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. After pulling down the environment menu option to set the dat and time I get the dialog that allows one to select the time and date using sliders. Unfortunately I can't un-check the check-box that locks x-plane to the current date and time. I assume that this setting is stored on the disk somewhere in a configuration file. Can someone tell me how to get around this apparent bug in x-plane? N206LG
