Jetmax 737 TQ questions

Recommended Posts

Hi, i just got the 737 TQ today and hoping someone who is using this with the 737 NGX can help me with my questions -

 

Do you need the FDS glare to work the 737 ngx with the TQ or can you just assign through FSUIPC?

 

I have got the flaps and spoliers plus the engine thrust levers working. BUT i'm having trouble with the reversers i have set the offset word set per the jetmax TQ737 guide but when i use the reversers they only move to the idle part and not all the way back depending on how far i move both levers.

 

Also i have assigned the parking brake through FSUIPC and that doesn't function like it should, i can get it to engage and release but not the way it should function when using the lever.

 

Also the fuel cutoff levers i can't find the function in FSUIPC?

 

All the help is appreciated thanks alot.

Hi, Vernon.

 

To begin with, I don't have the Jetmax TQ. Oh, I wish I would! :rolleyes:

But as for the fuel cutoff levers, check the NGX FMC key command menu for the assignments (in the Control Stand section).

Choose any key combo you wish and then try assigning this combo in FSUIPC to your hardware levers. I hope it will work for you.

I would also suggest that you may want to reach out to jetmaxx for guidance.

 And have a happy new year

Of course you can as long as you have a registered copy of FSUIPC.

Have a great 2015 year! :good:

Well i have a  737 TQ (not from Jetmax but from cockpitforyou) and have a similar problem.

What  works for me,  is  moving    the reverser handles not completely   but halfaway up, which activates the idle part of the reversers,

waiting for   1 second and then advancing the levers   to the top position, which activate full  reverse thrust.

I do the opposite to deactive  the reversers.

when i run the FDS glare and start the 737 NGX the display selectors and some switches have turned and the landing gear lever is up! Pretty annoying. Anyone have this problem?

Ok thanks i can try that tomorrow! Jetmax told me its just basically and switch OFF and ON and not variable. So at the moment its just ON with full reverse!

Infact i have already tried that and the only way to keep the reverse thrust moving back is keep on moving the lever back and forth at the switch part

Use FSUIPC to assign F1 to the reversers. 

 

The reverse functions on the throttle are buttons, they are not an axis.

Hit another wall guys! I'm trying to assign the gear up and dn with my saitek lever! Does anyone know how to get around this because the gear isn't listed as a lever?

I'm trying to assign the gear up and dn with my saitek lever!

 

Registered FSUIPC:

- go to the Axis Assignment tab

- move your desired lever (click Rescan)

- when detected, go right to the assignment part, where it says 'Set up to 10 ranges for action'

- choose range no.1 for GEAR UP (Control sent where range entered) marking it (by moving the lever and clicking first FROM and then TO) somewhere between the most forward and the central position of your lever

- then assign range no.2 for GEAR DOWN marking it between the centre and the most backward position of the lever

- save and fly :wink:

 

BTW I use the same tab to assign reversers to my CH throttle quadrant's levers.

Check your settings in the PMDG 

Make sure they are set to NEVER override the autothrottle 

 

there are a few other options in there 

play with them 

 

from the pmdg FMC go into simulation or aircraft i cant remember 

 

i'm pretty sure that's it 

 

Good Luck 

 

How do you like the TQ overall ?

Hi thanks but thats not the issue, i can still move the thrust levers in the NGX even when its set to never!

i think i had the same issue relates to fsuipc and the NGX 

so what i do is send the command direct to FSX and delete the fsuipc settings 

 

then set the axis is FSX 

i think this is an NGX issue with throttles 

 

Try it out 

 

Let me know
