Hello Sanjeev,Do you have a registered version of FSUIPC? You can make most control assignments through the FSUIPC controls.

Unfortunately, no! I don't have the registered version. I will, however, consider purchasing one if it's the only way...Thanks for the super-fast response!Sanjeev Mundluru

Yes you can, without the need for a registered FSUIPCGo into controls assignments in FS9 and select your joystick device.Find the command - "Throttle Decrease Quickly", it has a keyboard assignment of F2. Assign the joystick button of your choice to that command using "change assignments" and the select repeat to maximum (important).Now when you want reverse you just hold down your assigned button for as long as you want reverse activated.Paul Gardner

Assigning F2 is how I have done it on my CH Yoke to the left side of the rudder trim switch...just don't forget to assign F1 - Engine Idle to a button also to get out of reverse thrust (I use the right side of the rudder trim switch). This method just doesn't work sometime's on high end addon, like the PSS T7 with the autothrottle engaged and using autoland. I usually come out of autopilot and autothrottle about 800-500 feet on final and manually reduce the throttle on my CH Yoke to idle before engaging reverse thrust.Steve Park

Just try it in the same way as button and see what happens.
