Jet throttle won't quit

On my Realflight 7.5 many of the jets keep on going when I reduce the throttle to zero. I even trim the throttle to minimum.
Is there any fix to that?

The normal startup and shutdown procedure for rc jet engines don't work in Real flight. If that is not what you are referring to which jet(s) is the problem. In Real life the turbine will keep pushing you even at idle.

Just like in real life, an engine at idle is still producing thrust. Use brakes to hold the aircraft position while on the ground if it continues to move. Use the K key on the keyboard to turn the engine off. Note that this cannot be restarted without a reset.
