setting reverse thrusters
hello folks i have been flying the trotter and it is a great add on, glad i bought it.
i have been reading the manual and getting the hang of tis plane.
the plane is a beauty to fly, and so im building my sim around it.
what im needing to know is the setup to use reverse thrusters.
i have a full set up or most of it anyway.
Ch yolks and quadrant , with two Go flight moduals, the gf-mcp and thegf 166a.
also running a six monitor set up with a second com to run the extra software , radar con, flightsim commander etc.
im needing to know how to set up reverse thrusters on the ch throttle quadrant.
or is that possible, im wanting to engage it when landing.
can someone help me on that, i have most of the set up as far as axis , like flaps , trim engine throttles etc.

It can be setup either in the CH Control Manager or in FSUIPC (best way).
I believe the CH Control Manager activates the reverse when the reverse button is on - this happens when the throttle goes past idle into reverse. I never had luck using this setup because the reverse would sometimes come on when the throttles were at idle. There is a setting to change the null - but again I never had luck with it. I use FSUIPC.
In FSUIPC go to the throttle axis section. Set the max thrust (throttles full then click set), then set idle (throttles to the idle detent on the TQ the click set), then set the reverse. It is very easy to do. My only tip is when setting the idle, have the throttle slightly past the idle detent into reverse. This will ensure the reverse never engages when the throttles are at idle.Grant D.
