My thrust reversers don't work very well in FS2002. All of my settings seem to be correct and my joystick is properly calibrated. When I hold F2 down, it seems to fight going into reverse. When it does work, the thrusters do not stay engaged for more than a few seconds.
Anyone else experience this problem and know of any solutions? Thanks for your help.

Cosync - That's exactly what's happening. The throttle jitters slightly when I'm idle. It doesn't really affect performance, but it prevents the reverse thrust from engaging. I have re-calibrated the joystick several times and this problem hasn't been fixed. I know the joystick is fine. Are you aware of any tricks I can apply while calibrating? I'm at a loss.
Crank - I have researched that program and I'm anxious to get it working. It seems there are several versions available for download. Which version do you recommend - or can you give me a link?

i can suggest taking the joystick apart and cleaning the contacts on the variable resistors. if u dont knwo how to do that get someone who knows electronics to do it. a short term fix is just to find a throttle setting that doesnt jitter. then push and hold F2. and u should be fine.
