REVERSE function


Recommended Posts

Hello,

my Saitek throttle quadrant is controlled by FSUIPC4. Everything is working fine.

For turboprops, I would like to assign following commands to buttons on the throttle quadrant:

"(Power) REVERSE" and "(Prop) FEATHER".

I didn't find these commands in FSUIPC and in the "list of FSX controls". Maybe I am blind...

Could you please advise me, where I can find this commands in the buttons section, or how to program it in FSUIPC.

Many thanks in advance!

Kind regards

Arndt

Microsoft didn't name those "functions" specifically, they are just reductions in the normal throttle and prop pitch setting below their idle or neutral setting. If you know how to set them on the keyboard or using the mouse on the panel you could see exactly what controls FS is using by enabling the Event logging in FSUIPC, then looking at the log. I think you'll find the reverse (F2) is "throttle decr" and "feather" (Ctrl+F2) is "prop pitch decr". There are separate controls too for each engine, if that's what you need.

Regards

Pete
