Please, How To Activat The Thrust Reverser On FSX?

Thu Jun 21, 2007 12:58 am

Hi all,
I am not able to activate the thrust reverser on FSX, can someone explain me how to use it, please?

Also, when I arm spoilers for landing, they don't deploy during touchdown, I don't understand

thanks for your answers
regards

Throttle back, F2

Message too short because Airliners.net doesn't like "Short-n-Sweet"
I convert Jet A and 100LL into noise.

For the spoilers you have to 'ARM' them. In the case of the 738 you open the engine panel and find the speed brake, drag it down to about 1/4 of the way where it says ARM and when you land and start the reverse thrust, she will stop a little faster  Smile

Happy Flying!

Cant you press shift + / like in FS9? Or is FSX less advanced  Wink Also i believe, if its like FS9, there is an assignment to assign that can dump all the throttle which in theory should make it go into reverse thrust.

I think its F1, but that puts you back to idle. So as your coming in, you hit F1 passsing over the threashold and then press F2 a couple of times to get the reversers happening.

If the plane has cargo doors, press Ctrl + E + 2. It's a bit picky with the timing sometimes, but keep trying it, and you'll get it. Oftentimes, with third party manufacturers, the airplane designer will assign the cargo doors to the "Tailhook" or "Wing Fold" function, so make sure you have keystrokes assigned for those as well.

Hope this helps.

Sometimes they don't open because they weren't built into the model... Some do, some don't.

Anyway, to get the reverser engaged, idle the power, and hold F2 until you hear the roar.

For arming the spoilers, press Shift + /. Then when you land, they'll deploy automatically.
