Does anyone have a problem with the default King Air in fs2002 advancing on is own? I have an MS Forcefeedback joystick, and when I let go of the breaks, at idle, the aircraft goes forward. Is this the way a King Air is in real life? Thanks ahead of time for your comments.

Bring the condition levers down to 'low idle', like in the real thing.

I've noticed that too, and I was just going to say exactly what Accidently said. When the condition levers are at high idle, it wants to move. At low idle, it taxis like other airplanes.

It's quite simple. Props on a turboprop aircraft (maybe not on all) generate more power than is needed to overcome static inertia when running at full pitch.
Reducing pitch to a lower level reduces that power output and will allow the aircraft to stop accellerating. Taxi using either proppitch and/or differential braking.

I wish I were flying

It is a glitch in the 350's .MDL file. It has a strange way of reading the throttle of the joystick.
If you pull back on the throttle and look at your guages, and then press F1 you will see the turbine spin down a little more.
