Reverse Thrust Issue

Recommended Posts

Sirs,I would like to ask a question regarding reverse thrust. Upon touchdown of the 744, as soon as the nose wheel makes contact, I deploy reverse thrust (F2), but for some reason, as soon as I apply, the reverse thrust immediately goes back to its idle position.Thank you for your patience.Motty Nolos

If so, try turning if off and see what happens. There's an issue with FS recoginizing engines idle when NAI is on, and thus, it doesn't allow REV Thrust to stay on.

Dear John,Thank you for such a quick response. Yes. As a matter of fact, I do believe that I had NAI engaged. I will replicate the flight again sans the NAI.Also, John, (and the forum) I was curious. Before the latest patch, when I set the MCP to my transition altitude, the aircraft would automatically switch to DES mode. Now, however, when I set the MCP, the A/C does not descend. The little "ball" on the center display which indicates (forgive my lack of aviation terminology to properly identify what I am talking about) tells me that I am above my target descent.Must I take an action on the MCP to initiate descent? I am using VNAV througout.Thank you,Motty

Don't click the Altitude Button unless you want it to start the descent NOW! BTW this has all worked perfectly for the three flights I've done since update.I presume you are seeing the little green descent point mark?

This of course could also mean that you do not have an E/D. Make sure you have an end of descent point or the aircraft has no path to follow ;P[h4]Randy J.
