Programming reversers with PFC jet and turbo TQs - need advice

Recommended Posts

I am considering getting the PFC throttle quadrants for turboprops and jets. PFC has told me, however, that the reverser feature of these TQs can't be programmed through fsuipc and will only work in X-Plane, not P3D. Apparently this wasn't always the case with earlier versions of the TQs and fsuipc. 


I was wondering if anyone has experience with the current USB version of these TQs and the current version 4 of fsuipc. If so, have you encountered this problem and what have you done to work around it?


I have the impression that the dedicated reverser lever on the jet TQ can't be mapped to an axis using fsuipc and thus is useless. So I am supposing that one needs to use key commands or map the reversers to the lower end of the throttle levers, if possible.


With respect to the turboprop TQ, I'm not sure exactly what doesn't work since there are no dedicated reverser levers so I'm unclear on what type of work around might be available if there is in fact a problem.


Any assistance will be appreciated.
