Throttle

Throttle indicator

The throttle setting determines the demanded thrust from the engine(s) on the active stage of your craft. Lower throttle settings will produce less thrust while consuming less fuel. Higher throttle settings will increase thrust at the cost of more fuel.

Maintaining a high throttle setting inside an atmosphere may increase the chance of an engine overheat with some engine types.

Solid boosters ignore throttle settings and, once ignited, will burn at 100% thrust until their fuel supply is depleted.

Throttle Control

The throttle can be controlled with the left shift and left ctrl key. They will increase and decrease respectively. When in Intra-Vehicular Activity view, the throttle lever in the cockpit can also be used.

The throttle indicator is located on the left side of the navball. When non-physical time warp is active, the throttle cannot be used.
