I Managed to get my throttles working by playinmg around with the Keyboard
settings. I am not sure what I did but it now works. I have reinstalled CFS3
and still have the same problem. If you get your controls to work are trying
to get some special functions to work it may be a case where there is no
setup in the key board file. This has been the case for C/F 18 carrier
launches where you have to program some of the functions like tail hook,
lower launch bar etc.
