I use winXP, FS2004 and CH Flight Sim Yoke.  Recently, I have been having trouble with the throttle -- it automatically reduces rpms while flying and before take off it automatically revs up while the yoke throttle is in idle.  I can get it corrected by moving the throttle back and forth, but it only works for a little while before it happens again.  Has anyone else had this problem and if so, how can it be fixed?  Thank you.

Do you have any other input devices plugged in that may have a throttle function activated?

This involves opening the case. It's not simple (especially re-assembly) and voids the warranty, so take the advice at your own risk ....

The potentiometers need to be periodically "cleaned". Sometimes just blowing them out with some compressed air works.. You might even need to blast them with some good old-fashioned tuner-cleaner.. and even eventually replace them. That's what I've needed to do, a few times.

Thanks to those of you who replied to my request.  I was able to fix the throttle problem by reinstalling the CH Flight Sim Yoke software.  Once I did that everything was okay. Smiley

My software for CH Flight Sim Yoke came with the product.  If you don't have the software I would try contacting CH Products.
