That's a good set of assignments -more or less what I have here too. I also
have a single turboprop for the few times I flew the Caravan or PC12 but you
can use the twin turboprop assignments at a pinch and ignore the No2 engine
levers.

Indeed you do.

Inside the Controls folder I keep five others; Single Prop, Twin Prop, 
Twin Turboprop, Four Jet and Twin Jet. In each folder I keep a copy of 
the Standard.xml, automatically saved after I've assigned the levers as 
required, with the appropriate aircraft type in play.

Since 90% of my flying is in either the TB21GT or TB100GT, the Single 
Prop folder copy is the default version. Before trying the SKA, prior to 
booting up FSX, I just copied the file from the Twin Turboprop to 
replace it.

In practice the Twin Turboprop version can be used with a twin jet, 
since only the two thrust levers are used and the Twin Turboprop is also 
set up to apply reverse thrust, albeit wrongly named, below the detent.
