Autothrottle problem


Recommended Posts


I already completed several flights without particular issues.

Shortly ago I was on short final, I disengaged autopilot and autothrottle but there was no way to move the throttles. They stayed at idle position and the only way to move them was to engage autothrottle again. I wanted to go on manual mode but there was no way. Did I do anything wrong or it is a bug? Again, I already did several flights and never experienced this.

This does sound weird indeed. There currently is no known bug like that for us. Make sure the hardware is correctly connected and that the axis are bound to the 0-100% one. Maybe you accidentally changed the profile and had the other one bound?

It's not hardware related because, I forgot to mention, once I managed to touch the ground (it was not easy) the throttle went in manual mode (it appeared on the PFD and I was able to move them again). Plus I spent five minutes trying troubleshooting while in air, so I recalibrated three times and afterwards went through all the checklist without success.
