Reverser position

Recommended Posts

Hi Pete,

Is there any FSUIPC variable that looks at the actual position of the thrust reversers?  I need a way to trigger an event once the reversers are 60% open, but cannot find any eisting variables that cover this.

Im using Prosim737, and they have made gates for reverser sync locks, but these operate even with the engines shut down, which is not what i need.

 

Cheers

There's only the throttle positions. Negative numbers are reverse. Positive are forward.

You'll onlt get a number, between 0 and -n, where n is a percentage of 16384. The percentage for max reverse,, expressed as a fraction, is a separate value in the AIRCRAFT.CFG and is available also in one of the FSUIPC offsets, as a throttle value. 0.25 in the CFG fgives a max or -4096..  so you can work out 60%

A throttle in reversed position will still show its value in the offsets as they refer to the lever position.
