Why would you need that?

Not being a smart ass. I have the T16000 set up myself.

Was thinking about a throttle quadrant to add to my set up for DCS.

The throttle had lost some smoothness over time.

Also IL2 and DCS requires engine management so it helps keeping the engine from overheating as it adds an indentation in the throw that you have set to a known speed.

The install took 10 minutes and is worth it in my opinion

Interesting.  I have one of those throttles in my hotas collection.  IMO it was/is one of the best bang/$ for a stand alone throttle available.  I didn't know anyone had been creating mods for it, very cool.  I'm interested to know how it holds up for you once you put some time on it Eagler.

So far so good

Much smoother and the indent give you a cruise speed setting easy to find now

I recommend this mod
