am able to arm the spoilers on the B737NG prior to landing with the mouse, but upon landing, the spoilers don't deploy at touchdown..any ideas on correcting this? thanks.

Still learning the 737 myself, but from what I've found out about the spoilers is they only retract when your at negative pitch. Try Autobrake and reverse thrust when on the ground. If you can tell me how to activate reverese thrust (still trying to figure that out) I'd be appreciative.

i always make sure that i retard the throttle, but also immediately hit and hold F1 before touchdown, during the flare. i had read that people were having trouble with the auto spoilers and that you needed to make sure your throttle was all the way to idle before the spoilers would extend. it is like this in real life, too.as far as reverse thrust goes, again make sure you are at idle thrust (F1) and then you can hit F2 to reverse thrust. the longer you hit F2, the more reverse thrust you get, to a point.

Using the keyboard, or clicking anywhere else does not work. Of course make sure the throttles are at idle prior to touchdown.Here's a link to the thread that discovered it:http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...ing_type=search- John

The spoilers will deploy when you have POS wheel spin up and the spoilers are armed. To arm them take your mouse and open the throttle panel up and like was said before pull half way down, you should see it move. Then go to your main panel and check that light. you should see the light green. Throttle does not matter, it is all about wheel spin up on the main gears. Make sure when you arm them that you check the SPEED BRAKE ARMED light is green on the main panel. This should work..good luckJasonhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/ng_driver.jpg
