Reverse Thrust Not Working

Recommended Posts

Alright so I was on APP landed and I use the Go Flight Quadrant but the Reverser Thrust would not engage even pressing F2 they would not fully deploy

"Fully" deploy? Does that mean not all engines deployed reverse thrust? By habit, I always press F1 then F2, which ensures the MSFS logic will go to reverse.The thrust annnuciator should indicate a ATS OFF with red border around thurst area of PFD display when going to reverse thrust after autoland. Does this happen?

Well they would start and then go back to normal position. I can make a video with Fraps if you want

Mike,Bring the throttles back to idle (might require also pressing F1 to make sure FS receives idle; sometimes an uncalibrated control might not set idle thrust at minimum position)Then press F2 once.You will see on the EAD amber "U/L" indications. This means that the reversers are unlocking (sleeves in transit). During that period it is not allowed to apply reverse thrust (in reality there is a detent that will not allow you to move the reversers lever furher).Once the unlocking period is over idle reverse thrust is applied and green REV indications show on the EAD.You can now apply maximum reverse thrust by keep pressing the F2 key, or moving back your quadrant levers (if reverse is mapped).
