    Posted: 24 Jul 2018 at 11:38am
Purchased the new 152 for X-Plane, everything is working fine except the revs per minutes on the throttle. I cannot get my revs to idle at 300 or 500 rpm it idles at 800 with my Saitek throttle closed. All my other aircraft idle at 300 rpm with the throttle closed, so I do not want to alter my settings just for one aircraft, that will mess all the other aircraft. Can I get into the config files and lower so numbers there. Taxing is a joke at 800 rpm 30 mph ? Anyone any ideas

Lean your mixture? Thatโ€™s what I do to keep idle rpms low for Taxiing and also prevent plug fouling.

Thanks AviatorX I should have thought of that check, it is now taxing better and revs are down to 600.

๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘. I can usually get down to between 500 and 600 rpms with full idle throttle and mixture leaned out. Great plane. Enjoy!!
