I considered using a Saitek throttle with STO, but never tried it.
I assumed that without STO having keybinds for specific percentages of impulse power, the throttle would behave as you have described. With keybinds for specific percentages of impulse power, you could map the analog position of the Saitek throttle to those keybinds.
Else... the Saitek throttle software would have to distinguish between the transition to a mapped analog position from the positions on either side. As far as I know, it does not do this.
If, I'm wrong.... I'd like to know. Being able to use a throttle would be great.
