CH Pro Throttle Reverse Thrust FSUIPC Issue.

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone - I am pulling my hair out after spending hours trying to setup my CH Pro Throttle Quadrant using the latest version (which I have registered) of FSUIPC. The issue is that after setup in FSUIPC and upon trying it on the PMDG 737-700NGX the throttle when pulled into reverse works with reverse thrust BUT I can't move it out of reverse unless I do so on the F keys on my keyboard. I had to do a re-installation and now can't seem to get it to work as it did before using the same setup methods. I also made sure I had no conflicting assignments between my CH Yoke and Rudder Pedals. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions/help in resolving this setup issue.

 

Thanks in advance for your consideration!

Lyle.

I'm surprised you managed to get revere working on an axis in the first place. I'm always being told that the PMDG Boeings need normal Axis controls without calibration in FSUIPC (to avoid conflicts with the PMDG code reading directly). Reverse is normally done by programming a button to repeatedly send throttle reducing controls (normally F2 or its control equivalent), with a throttle cut (F1) being sent on button release to bring it back to idle. With Saitek throttles there's a suitable button pressed when you pull the levers right back.

Hi Pete, yes I was aware of the F1/F2 button option but I have always had no issue with PMDG and using the axis control on the throttles - I had to do a clean install of Windows so am trying to recover this performance again. Like I noted, I have it going into reverse but it won't come out of reverse short of using the F key. Not sure what happened if PMDG did something recently (I downloaded the files again so maybe they have added updates preventing the operation  I previously had). Anyway, thanks for getting back to me on this - too bad the option can't be made to work it would be a notable benefit when using the PMDG products...

Here is a great guide to setting up the CH throttle quadrant. This is what I use, and my reverses work like a charm. Occasionally, I have to advance the throttles slightly for the reversers to close. Not every time, but maybe 3 out of 10. The 747 is friendlier than the 777.

Pete - They say that, but I have always run my calibrations through FSUIPC on all of the PMDG jets and I have never had an issue. I set up my reversers using the throttle axis’ and, just for fun, I have my extra throttle that is built into my yoke running the reversers as well. My CH throttle quad gives me nothing but full reverse, but if I decide to use the spare single throttle on the yoke I can pull it slightly to activate idle reverse and continue all the way through full reverse. The whole range.

That's good. I'm glad it can be done, but there have been so many adverse reports in the past that I generally advise otherwise.

Thanks msweetsr and Pete - I also had and tried the guide you provided and this is the steps I took previous to having to do a re-installation of FSX and my PMDG aircraft. Prior to the re-installation the steps worked perfectly and my CH had full reverse function but now I can't get it to work - it goes into full reverse and won't come out of reverse (throttles have no effect). Not sure whats going on and have used buttons at this point to get the throttles out of reverse. Guess I can keep trying and hope I can get it working again. Thanks again guys!
