    FSUIPC Reverse thrust??

    Hello everybody.

    I can't seem to find "reverse thrust" in FSUIPC or "Assignments"?
    Can anyone tell me how to map F2 to a button on the panel?
    I was hoping to use BODNARS unit for this, but no luck so far?
    Maybe "reverse thrust" is referred to in FSUIPC and Assignments as something else? Anybody know what this might be?

    Help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Copied this from an answer I gave another user;

    Oh man super easy, you said you have FSUIPC so here's what you.

    1. Open FSUIPC, go to buttons tab, move the individual lever that you want to program reverse on into the detent to press that button and it will show up in fsuipc as soon as its pressed.

    2. Then near the top right portion of the program tick the box "Select FSX Control." After you will see below more tick box options, "Control to send when pressed" and "Control to send when released."

    3. For control to send when pressed also tick key repeats while held find in the drop down "Throttle # decr" remember tick box control to repeat while held must be ticked.

    4. Set control to send when released "Throttle # Cut" and that will send it to ground idle. Do this 4 times if you have a four engine setup, each command is there for engines 1-4.

    Erase the FSX assignments of F2 that is over with and long gone! Now you should be good to go, and have fully functioning independent reverse thrust.

    That description above was to map a button per engine, if you want one button to do them all then all you need to do is this.

    In button assignment page, press the button you wish to use and follow step 2 & 3. The only difference is you will "Select Key for press" assign it F2, make sure to tick repeat when held. You should be good to go after that.

    Tony,
    in FSUIPC use the Buttons and Switches tab. Operate the button you wish to use (select profile specific if required). This will identify it to FSUIPC. Then use left side of that page, and your keyboard, to allocate the key press you want to assign to that button. From memory you press 'Set' then the F2 key. You may also want to select the 'Repeat While Button Held' function.
