Thanks for the "hint"..... I have been tracking down a sh*t load of drivers, in fact I just installed one for my multimidia keyboard that wasn't working......nice to have all the features back!!..... I might have to start ALL OVER again after I install my new video card......

Thanks gyan, the hold seems to be working.......funny thing is when activated the throttle stick (on the on screen radio) goes full up but the engine sound doesn't change..... When the throttle hold is "off" the throttle only goes up to a "high idle" not enough to spin the rotors more than about 100~105.....rpms Looking at the on screen radio the sticks all move as they should I have the throttle travel limit in my radio at 150%....also tried 100%...no difference.

Blade;

Forgive me, 'cuz it was about 8 months ago, but I had similar trouble when I did my G2 installation to XP.

I seem to recall having to do a "manual" installation of the driver for the interface when using your own radio.


Assuming you've downloaded all the current files, go to the "Control Panel", and at the bottom of the main screen, bring up the Read Document, ManualTX_XP.doc

That will tell you how to install the driver for the interface.

Hope this helps...

Thanks for that info, I did have to install the "dongle" separately....after I restarted Windows it recognized it and it was OK after that.( it wouldn't work at all before that) I probably have something set wrong or not set at all, it's just odd that the stick movements are shown as normal and all channels work except the throttle... I have tried 3 different radios (all JR) and it's same on all 3. I'll get it sorted when I have more time to drag my butt through it....
