PMDG 737 FSUIPC

Recommended Posts

Gents,

 

I recently bought a throttle quadrant for the PMDG 737.

It's non motorized but has all functionality.

I have little to no experience using FSUIPC but will go through some tutorials over the weekend.

 

I should have no problems setting up the throttle, flaps, speed brakes, parking brakes.

However I could really use some advise on the reversers (axis control, not switch) and fuel cut off switches as I

am not sure where to bind them to within FSUIPC.

 

Any help welcome

 

Regards, Rick Melcher

Since there is no reverse thrust axis, I simply assign the reverse switch in my throttle controller to keycommand F2 in P3D/FSX (I only use FSUIPC when I have to).  The fuel cutoff switches are commands in the FMC Options Keycommands list, use those in conjunction with FSUIPC because the PMDG FMC does not recognize controller buttons.  Assign your controller buttons to keyboard commands in FSUIPC to match the assignments in the FMC Options.  Mine are set up for Ctrl+Shift+F1 ... F4 but you should use what works for you.

Depending on which hardware you use but -

on my throttle hardware (saitek pro flight ) - if you pull the throttle down all the way it hits a little notch to let you know you are at 0. You can then pull the throttle down further that acts as a button. You can assign this button to reverse the throttle, and click on repeat so that when you land (at idle) you pull the throttle down further to activate the reverse thrust. When you're ready to ease off the reverse thrust, push the throttle back up to the 0 notch.

Speed brakes are similar, to arm them I pull down all the way into that button zone.

 

Flaps I had to use little labels to know at which point on the axis physically corresponds to a flap setting since there are no notches for flap settings.
