REVERSE THRUST ON LANDING

Recommended Posts

:-newbie As I'm new to this inc Simming please understand what would seem to be a dubm question. How can I select reverse thrust on say the 777 upon landing to slow myself down, I've got the hang of the spoilers and the autobrake but cannot get the reverse trust to work. Tried looking at the assignments etc for the keyboard and my joystick... Num3 or F3 are assigned to decrease throttle but the reversers do not engage.Thanks for any help.Stewart (UK)

Stewart:toolbarAlternatively, you can program your throttle by opening FSUIPC under the MODULES section of the FS 2002 toolbar. There is a page you can select where reverse thrust parameters are assignable to your throttle past a certain travel point as you pull the throttle back to land. I used to mark the reverse thrust point with a little dab of white-out, so I knew exactly where Idle thrust ended and reverse thrust began....You don't want to engage reverse thrust by accident on short final!!Good Luck, http://www.expedia.com/pubspec/images/airlines/smNW.gifAlex ChristoffN562ZMinneapolis, MN

Hello Stewart,Be sure to push and hold the F2 key when activating the reverse thrust. Just pushing it and letting go will not deploy the reverse thrusters(At least on mine, it doesn't). Then when you don't need them anymore, quickly push the F1 key.Hope this helps,Larry:-)
