Hello Tony,

That's because there isn't one, to be quite blunt.

The way FS9 and X do reverse thrust is that, once the throttle is at idle, if you keep pressing the "reduce throttle" functions, then the engines will go into reverse thrust. There is no specific function to get there.

What I would suggest, as I know it works on my throttle quads, is to set your "reverse detent" button as "reduce throttle quickly" on press and "throttle idle" on release, using FSUIPC. That does limit you to all or nothing on reverse thrust, but many real world aircraft operate that way as well. That's the least complex method.

Best regards,

Ian P.

I am new to FSUIPC so excuse me if there's a better way to do this but last night I was wrestling with this same problem.

I first mapped to the FSX default keypress F1 and F2 with these commands. After more investigation I just mapped directly in FSUIPC to "THROTTLE DECR 65602" and "THROTTLE CUT 65604" and it worked well.
