Please Note:
Through email correspondances with our customers, we find that you might encounter compatibility issues if your computer has any Saitek Driver software installed.

If older Drivers are present, the DTA Throttle Quadrants will work without any problems. If updating to newer Drivers, Saitek has their software preventing other flight sim products using ANALOG inputs from functioning correctly. This includes our 2780 and 2790 Throttle Quadrants and our Model 2705 and 2707 Trim Wheels.

If you are having issues, go to the MS Flight Simulator controls and change the filter from
Assigned to Essential or All to map your devices to MS Flight Simulator and save.

Also, you might look into this solution from a customer: I was able to correct the issue with my Saitek yoke and the throttle quadrant. The problem was in MSFS assistant options "piloting" settings. Once I shut off all these settings things got much better.

The video shows calibrations for standard Joystick inputs, for the 2780/2790, just select THROTTLE, FUEL MIX and PROP PITCH in place of the selections shown.

YouTube Help in Calibrating the Throttle using MS2020
First an overview: The DTA Model 2780/2790 Throttle Control is very similiar to the widly used CH Products Yoke. Both Throttle Quadrants make use of the 3 throttle settings; Throttle, Fuel Mix and Prop Pitch. As you proberly already know, CH Products also has the Yoke feature, of which the 2780/2790 does not. Both are detected by your computer as an HID device (Joystick input) when plugged into the computer's USB Port. No additional driver software is needed because when first plugged in, the computer automatically detects and loads the appropriate driver software.

Seeing that both devices are basically the same, you can view this YouTube video explaning how to setup the the CH Yoke, but use this information on setting up the Throttle, Fuel Mix and Prop Pitch of the DTA 2780/2780.

Although, the video shows the CH Yoke was detected by MS2020, the 2780/2790 will show up as DTA Throttle 2780 or DTA Throttle 2790. By clicking on this option, you can configure the DTA throttle using the CH Products settings (although the YOKE settings are ignored.)
