Thrustmaster Warthog Throttle Start-Up Issue

Many users have complained about the Warthog Throttle not working properly after a DCS update some months ago.

Moving the throttle from the CUTOFF position to IDLE (over the detent) was not working on engine startup.

This was reported in this forum post here.

We also experienced the same issue on our system.  Our workaround was to move the the throttle out of detent twice.

We investigated further and found that if you disable the HOTAS Synchronization setting under OPTIONS, MISC then that also fixes the issue (at least it did on our system).

Here is a diagram showing the setting that needs to change.

Hopefully this will help you out and get your throttle working in game again as expected.
