Well I posted the same question in another forum but havent received any help there yet so guess I'll try here.

I'm having trouble figuring out how to configure my throttle quadrant with fsuipc to make the flaps lever in the sim match the movement of my quadrant flap lever. In fsuipc, I dont know what to change/select to make that happen.  Like when I move the lever on the quadrant down to make flaps go down, the lever in the sim goes up. I hope i'm explaining this to where its understood by you guys. Oh, and to add to that, its not just the flaps lever that performs backwards, its my rudder pedals and spoilers lever too. So when I'm releasing the brakes, I'm actually braking :(

Thanks.

This is covered in some detail in the FSUIPC User guide. Check the Contents, near the front. There's an entry under "joystick Calibration" called "Calibrating flaps with specific detentes".

Just reverse it (REV) before calibrating. Have you actually looked at the Calibration tab?

Again, this is what the REVerse checkbox is for! Do that BEFORE calibrating. Please do refer to the FSUIPC documentation. It is all there.

Thanks again Pete. I was actually looking under the WRONG tab. I didnt see the REV option at the time. This program is new to me so it'll take some time getting used to.
