for KNOWN ISSUE - Reverse not working as it should

Recommended Posts

Hi PSS....Phoenix 7 , Norman :-) I saw the KNOWN ISSUE Tread and sorry but missingsomething here..Whats with that bothering Glidepath dive as the Planereaches and couples to Glidepath ( a lot threads here in the forum )Another i posted a Tread that at Autoland my Reverse `s notproper works as the AT button dosen`t shut down if i press F2. ;( I steated that in a thread and saw another Guy who have the same Prob.Maybe not a big Issue for you but looks like there otherpeople out there who are fighting with that anomaly.I don`t no way..........have no Probs with that at other ACor Add On - maybe you can look in that or have some tipp.PLEASE ANY SIMMERS THAT HAVE THOSE PROB ; PLEASE POST HERE !!!!As for some small ISSUS a great ADD On and SUPERB JOB PSS.CheersMario G

Hi John ! :-) Can`t tell you exactly now ,what settings was at that stage off Flight as i reached the desent Point for Glide,but be shure all was in expected limits.For the Reverse , yeah that sems to be a bit tricky.Normal F2 works but not here and don`t ask me why.I don`t know.....Sometimes it works about you are reaching 60-40 knots.As i try to start the Reverse it looks like theAT button don`t wont to shut off so that the reversecan do his work.It`s sirious i now ....all other stoff is working fine and at all, i have no Probs with FS 9.1But there are some more out there with that Prob so looks something is in the corner.CheersMario G

I did do the turorial flight and everything worked fine for me except the reverse. At touchdown I press F2 but nothing happens, AT doesn't get disconnected, i manually brake (and keep pressing F2 repeatedly) and sometimes at 40 kts or sometimes just after when i came to a complete stop, then the reverse suddenly starts working... No idea what this is.Again, the plane flies great, i don't have much problems with it but this reverse thing is weird and I cannot think about the reason...Martin

In my experience, the reverse do works, but it takes a while to kick in. In fact I feel it more realistic that other Addons, since you start hearing the engines roar a few secs after applying F2, and not inmediately.

Yes, i know what you mean, but they kick in when i'm about to taxi to the gate:) It's a bit late lolMartin

Ok, then is working, but you need to hook it up earlier. Once the rear gear touches the ground, and the nose is still up, press and (important) hold F2. By the time the front gear touches the runway the reverses should be activating. Try it. I had worked for me flawlessly.

John,i can watch the throttles go to Idle at Land ( allways opening thepedal panel on my second monitor )so they are.I think thats not the Problem.....But don`t ask me what then ..... asolutly strange.CheersMario

Hmmm, I'm sorry to say but it still doesn't work for me. I tried pressing F1 and than F2 but it didn't solve. AT simply doesn't get disconnected and reverse not working. I have to manually disarm AT and then at about 30-40 kts (sometimes after a complete standstill), then suddenly reverse comes alive...Getting quite desperate, everything, really everything is working fine for me, AP, handflying the plane, no problems, just this reverse thrust thing... I don't know where to look for an explanation...I doublechecked keyboard assignements, did everything mentioned in this topic, even reinstalled the whole plane, followed the turotial flight to the letter... nothing helps...Anyone?Martin...

Ok, well, after some more trying out this evening, for me the only option which seems to work is to manually disarm the AT and after that use F2 for reverse, then it almost immediately kicks in. It's fine with me to use it like that but i really hope one day someone can tell me why it doesn't disarm as it should be :)(Not much hope because it seems only very few ppl seem to have this little problem)Martin

I have the same issue. The aircraft idles out, but the AT does not disengage and unless I manually disengage it I cannot activate reversers.Also the AC seems to "chase" the localizor accessively, but hand flying her in is awesome :-) Going to start hand flying her on the approaches -- better experience, but for those catagory III days a plane that doesnt chase the localizor so excessively would be nice.

Once the AT is manually disengaged then F2 works great.It now works great for me to disengage the AT right when I see "Idle" on the display during flare, so I can manually reverse when I touch down.

Same here:) Handflying goes superb, autoland is a bit nervous and sometimes it even likes to float over the runway till finally touching down...But besides these little issues, i really love the plane.Martin

Aye the plane is bloody awesome. I flew her across the country twice now, but only have 1 issue that effects me (no, not the reversers) -- it's an FMC lockup issue that is being discussed already in another thread. FS freezing up ruins a flight. Fortunately reversers do not LOL.This plane is AWESOME to hand fly approaches with, though. All i can say is WOW!

Hi again,I was wondering, i saw other threads here about the plane slightly floating when the nose wheel is still 'up'. If the "A/T disarm trigger" is the main gear touching the ground then this might be the issue? I've tried several contact points as mentioned elsewhere on the forum but still, the main gear is floating and so AT doesn't get disarmed?Here some pics of the tutorial flight to KLAX. The floating can be clearly seen. Taxiing or at the gate all is fine, it's just the moment when the nose gear is still (or already, during take off) in the air.Ok, having said all that, it's no big issue for me to use manual disarm but it would be nice if PSS would acknowledge this as being a known issue so that maybe in a patch later on this will be addressed? Both this floating and the disarm issue seems to affect more and more users.Thanks,Martinhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/132949.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/132950.jpg
