According to the official FSX manual.Condition levers to low idle after starting engines, and set for high idle for landing.
Key combination is Ctrl+shift+ 2 fuel off before start (I find F2 on my setup)increments slow Ctrl+shift+4 fuel on (condition lever on full, F4 on my system)fast on Ctrl+shift+3 condition lever to idle (F3 on my system) increments slowMy Saitek levers carry out the same function, with no setup by me.So I assume the mixture lever is acting as the condition lever.
I need to do some more flights, and see how the fuel situation progresses.Coupled with finding out how to start manually, I think I am getting somewhere.

BonesThere should be a key combination for putting the condition levers to low idle, could do it from there, running in low idle against high idle should then cut my fuel comsumption.Other than that, multiple FS installs to cover each type, no problem with FS9,I have the space, but FSX!Methinks a dig through the assignments table later.

You really need separate lever assignments for pistons, turbopropsand jets. bones bones@xxxxxxx http://woodair.net -----Original Message----- From: jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of F FISHER Sent: 20 August 2008 09:29 To: jhb_airlines@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [jhb_airlines] B350 BonesYes I kept the descent rate down to 250 or less, started at FL250 over IOMand at FL100 before BLACA. This morning, a proverbiale light went on. My Saitek mixture levers alter the sim condition levers, no problem. But those levers are assigned to the mixture keys in the sim. Not the condition levers. Which would explain why moving them has no effect on high/low idle.Will have to have a dig into the assignments again, but it would mean have 2sets of assignments for piston and turbos.
