Reverse Thrust help

Recommended Posts

How do I Reverse thrust Two Engines using Saitek Yoke and throttle quadrant in FSX.

In the buttons and switches menu I only have one throttle description.

I know how to do it for one engine but not for two engines. Can someone help me please?

This is my hardware configuration. Throttle, Throttle, Prop, Prop, Mixture, mixture.

Shouldn't that be:

Throttle1, Throttle2, Prop1, Prop2, Mixture1, mixture2?

yes.

So does that mean you now have two axises recognised as throttle 1 and throttle 2?

You can't assign a reverse thrust axis in FSX. The only thing that you can do is assign the button (the 'click' you hear when you put the throttle down all the way) at the bottom of of a throttle lever (use the one assigned to axis 1, as this gives you the flexibility to add or remove throttle axes) to the 'decrease thrust quickly' button, assigned to F2 by default. Make sure to turn repeat all the way up. This way, when you bring the throttle levers all the way down and trigger the button, reverse thrust will be engaged on all engines. Unfortunately, using this (the only) method you can only apply 100% reverse, and you can't make one engine reverse while the other does not, but I can't think of a situation where you'd need to do that anyway.

Unless you have a registered FSUIPC, in which case you can do both of those things. On my Twin Otter, for example, I have independent analogue axes mapped to reverse (the yellow levers in my cockpit). It can help with backing up and turning around!

I have the Saitek throttle quadrant. This is my throttle reverse setup from my FSUIPC.ini, using button 20 for Throttle1 and button 21 for Throttle2:

0=R0,20,C65966,0
1=U0,20,C65967,0
2=R0,21,C65971,0
3=U0,21,C65972,0
