FSUIPC Key Press: How to exclude aircraft

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I am a complete FSUIPC noob, although I've been using it for quite a while. I have assigned a button (by following this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xr5QZ_0zEpc) that basically activates reverse thrust when pressed and closes reverse when released. 

I am using P3DV4 if that matters.

I am very pleased with this method and it works great for most of my aircraft, however, I do not want this functionality in a specific jet, where I prefer a different method to activate reverse thrust and also, I'd like to use that particular button on my joystick for something else (to extend the flaps) in case of this aircraft.  Right now, when I want to extend the flaps (which is assigned via the normal P3D controls menu), it also activates the reversers, which isn't great. Long story short, I would like to ask if there is a way to exclude this and only this aircraft from that FSUIPC setting that makes that particular keypress activate/close the reverse thrust? 

Attached is my .ini file, I believe the entry for the thrust reverse activation / deactivation is under the [Buttons] tab.

Thank you kindly for your help!

you need to look into using 'profiles'. Take a look at the section 'User profiles for all control settings' on p18 of the User Guide in your 'Modules/Documents' folder.

For your use case, you can just override the button assignment with a profile specific one for the jet in question.
