Hi smainville,

Are you struggling with the Flight Idle stops perhaps? You'll need to either pull the latches on the Power Levers (under the handles) or enable the 'Use PL Auto-Latch option in 'Saab User Preferences' (the little Gizmo menu on the top right) which removes the stops

Cameron explained it in the Release Notes for v1.6.4 (linked below) (scroll down a bit to the 'IMPORTANT' part). I don't think the original documentation you're referring to was updated.

You can bind the latches individually or together to a button/key.

They're called:

Left Power Lever Flight Idle Latch

Right Power Lever Flight Idle Latch

or

Right & Left Power Lever Flight Idle Latch

and live under: les/sf34a/acft/engn/... just search for 'latch'

 

Hope that helps!

Thanks for your reply, been away a bit and just saw this.  I have since discovered that everything will work perfectly if I use my Saitek quadrant but not with my Thrustmaster TCA.  Wondering if anyone else has expereienced this?
