Reverse Thrust In FS2000

I've noticed that some of the aircraft I downloaded won't move backwards when I put the throttle to reverse thrust. I can hear the sound change, but the plane won't move in reverse. I don't know if it is something to do with how 'real' the person created or designed the plane or what. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Does anyone know how to solve it? Thanks in advance.

It is NOT a problem. If the reverse thrust can't outnumber the AUW, it won't move. The same when going forward. Except then you can add more power and it can move.

It's called realism  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

The airplane won't move backwards when you apply reverse thrust because a real aircraft won't move either when you apply reverse thrust. If you would be able to go backwards with a real aircraft you wouldn't need pushback when leaving the gate. If you could go backwards with reverse thrust, the airport terminal would be noisy whenever a aircraft would leave the gate.

There are FEW and I repeate, FEW, aircraft that have the ability to use their reverse thrusters to move backward. However, because of the noise problem that Fritzi mentioned, they normally just use the pushback.

There are planes that can and at some places use reverse thrust departing from gate. Aircraft like ATR-72, Saab 340 do this very often. Can also be done in DC-9, MD-80 etc. This is called a powerback, or powerpushback instead of pushback.

(Power)pushback = gate departure using own engines.

However, in reverse thrust the jet blast is directed to forward. It is not very much used for gate departure because the jet blast is directed directly towards the terminal windows.

Sorry for this stupid question...but how is the reverse thrust used in FS2000, can't find the answer anywhere lol.

The main reason TR is not used to back away from gates in jetaircraft is (or so I've been led to believe) the possibility of damage caused by hot exhaust gasses being sucked back into the engine when backing up.

Is the realism setting on hard?

I don't really take that...reverse thrust is a commonly used method used to slow down the aircraft after touchdown (though usually only idle reverse thrust is used due to noise restrictions) so it would cause damage to the engines then too.

I believe the main reason is:

, in reverse thrust the jet blast is directed to forward. It is not very much used for gate departure because the jet blast is directed directly towards the terminal windows.

...and to the passengers in terminal and ground people there.
