How to use throttle

I don't know why my throttle is not working. My joystick and throttle are the ThrustMaster Top Gun joystick and throttle. I notice that there is a cable coming out of the throttle. this is connected to the joystick which is connected to my computer via USB cable. Whenever i try and assign the throttle control in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 to the throttle connected to the joystick, 2004 does not detect the throttle is even there. How do I get the throttle to work? Also when i open up gaming devices in Control Panel the callibration program does not even pick up the throttle. Please help me.

With Regard

look forward to hearing from you

    well just exactly the same. Assigning throttle to the numbered buttons also doesn't work.

Make sure, that your Joystick is compatible with the version you are having problems with. If not, make sure that it's enabled in the configuration of MCFS. If none of those work, you will most likely have to purchase a more compatible Joystick.

I have Windows 7 and MS Flight Sim X - what is the best joystick for this combination?

Really, that is completely up to the user. I have the Thrustmaster T-Flight HOTAS joystick, and I like that. There are many joysticks out there that offer many different features as well as coming with rudder pedals as well. Really, the biggest factor on deciding comes down to how light you would like your wallet to be after purchase! :)

Is Thrustmaster T Flight Hotas X joystick compatible with windows Vista

Yes it is compatible with windows vista. It is a plug and play device and should install itself as soon as you plug it in without the need of installing drivers from the included cd.

I'm not sure which version of windows your using and I can't say for sure on version above Windows XP. You should be able to go to "Add & Remove Programs", sellect "Add & Remove Windows Components". Remove the drivers for the joysticks, reboot your machine then using the same process add the drivers again. This should reinstall the drivers without having to fully reinstall windows.
If this doesn't work, again depending on your version of Windows you should be able to do a "Repair" install instead of a "Full" install this way you won't loose everything. For full details on how to do this go to and search their knowledge base for "Windows install options" or "Windows repair"

Doesnt work when i push or pull on the stick

If it's anything like an authentic joystick control, there may be a switch where your fingers rest which must be gripped/engaged in order to achieve movement, but i've never actually seen this controller so I can't be certain.

Hi Joe,

In light of the age of this post, if there has been no change in the situation, special peripheral devices may be necessary to end the frustration of all parties.

May I suggest the Sidewinder Pro 4 axis Joystick with embedded vibrating feedback used in conjunction with the Thrustmaster WCS throttle control.

You'll find the joystick to be super responsive no matter what games you are playing. And when it's time to go Full Throttle, well...., nothing beats a ThrustMaster.

Hope you find this advice to be very helpful in achieving that happy ending.
