I would suggest that one push and HOLD the F2 key until full deployment is achived......on most a/c it will take about 3 seconds.

Any way to assign it to a different key or joystick axis?Specifically the right lever used for mixture?Thanks,Ron

I use a button on my joystick (Saitek X52 Pro) for reverse thrust. Going off memory here but you assign Reduce Throttle Quickly (or it's called something like that) to a joystick button, make sure Repeat is ON and then all you need to do is press and hold the button to get reverse thrust. A quick push up and back of the throttle (which will should be at idle at this point) returns the engines back to idle.

I use CH Products throttle quadrant, and there are detents at the bottom end of each of the 6 axis, which can then be assigned to button presses with the repeat turned up. I am currently set up for a dual prop, with my throttle 1 set up to reverse, prop 1 set to feather, and mixture 1 set up to cut-off. Once the detent is passed, I can then add a second button press, but I have yet to find a reason to do so.Its all done in the control set up page in FSX.
