FlyingMonkey Posted June 4, 2013 Report Share Posted June 4, 2013 Hey all... Craig's discussion of the trim wheel stiffness on our training CTSW lead me to write about another quirk of this airplane...the throttle. It seems very non-linear in travel to RPM mapping. I'd say the first third of the throttle is *very* responsive, bordering on too much so. That first third will probably get the engine from idle to about 4500rpm. The middle third of throttle travel seems to have very little effect on rpm, almost a dead zone, the entire middle range maybe going from 4500rpm to 4800rpm. The final third goes from 4800-ish to WOT, about 5400rpm. Is this normal for the CTs? It's not really a problem once you figure it out, but it is pretty non-linear across the whole throttle travel.
