PMDG Forum Rules

1) SIGN YOUR POSTS. Since 1997, we have asked users to sign their real name, first and last, to all posts in the PMDG forum. We do this in order to keep conversations personal and familiar. You took the time to be here, we want to get to know you. This is one of the few rigid rules that we enforce regularly. We do so because we feel that forums in which users must engage one another personally are generally warmer, more collegial and friendly. Posts that are unsigned will be quietly removed without comment by the moderators, so to make your life easy- we recommend enabling your forum signature so that you never need to remember. Do this by clicking the username pull-down at the top right, then selecting "User Settings." You will find the signature editor on the ACCOUNT tab, about half way down the page. Look for "Edit Post Signature." Be sure to click the "Show Signatures" box.

2) BE NICE. We are all simmers here and no matter our differences of opinion, we share a common love of aviation, computing and simulation. Treat everyone else in the forum with respect even when you disagree. If someone frustrates you, walk away from the conversation or ask for a moderator to get involved. Speaking of Moderators, they prefer not to be treated as "The Thought Police" but if any behavior infringes on the enjoyment of another user or is otherwise considered to be unacceptable in the moderator's judgment, it will be addressed in keeping with our view of ensuring that this forum remains a healthy environment for all simmers.

3) BE LAWFUL: Any behavior that infringes upon the law, such as discussion or solicitation of piracy, threats, intimidation or abuse will be handled unsympathetically by the moderators. Threats and intimidation may, at the moderator's discretion, be provided to law enforcement for handling.

4) BE FACTUAL: When you post, always be factual. Moderators will remove posts that are determined not to be factually accurate.

5) RESPECT COPYRIGHTS: Posting of copyrighted material such as flight manuals owned by Boeing or various airlines is not allowed in this forum. If you have questions related to copyrighted material, please contact a forum moderator for clarification.

6) RESPECT PMDG: We love to hear what you like about our products. We also like to hear what you think can be improved, or what isn't working. Please do tell us and we will always treat your feedback with value. Just be sure to treat the team respectfully, as they do put a significant amount of effort into building and maintaining these great simulation products for you.

7) RESPECT PMDG DEVELOPERS: All of the developers will spend some time here. Given the ratio of developers-to-users, it simply isn't possible for us to answer every post and private message individually. Please know that we do try to read everything, but developer workload is simply too high to manage personal contact with tens-of-thousands of users simultaneously. In most cases, members of the development team will stick to conversations in the forum and will not answer private messages.

8) RESPECT OTHER DEVELOPERS: PMDG has always advocated for a strong development community and we have many friends within this community. Every developer offers something unique that helps to make the simming community larger and more vibrant. We insist that you treat our friends respectfully.

9) RESPECT MODERATORS: Moderators have a tough job, and none of them enjoy having to stomp out negativity. If a moderator has to weigh in to keep a thread peaceful, please respect that effort and refrain from giving the moderator any grief.

10) If you require official support for any of our products please open a support ticket through the support portal, https://support.precisionmanuals.com

11) This forum is designed primarily as a vehicle for the PMDG development team to interact with our customers, and for customers to interact with one another in a manner that is positive, supportive and assists in the general advancement of understanding the simulation and helping to make this and future simulations better. Any other use of this forum is not permitted, including but not limited to discussion of pricing policies, business practices, forum moderating policies, advertising of non-PMDG products, promotion of events, services or products that are not approved in advance by PMDG or any other topic deemed unacceptable by any forum administrator

12) HAVE FUN: This is the whole point of it all.

    Cant get reverse thrust to work. Using Thrustmaster T.16000m FCS HOTAS. Elevator trim barley moves as well

    So as the title says I cant seem to get reverse thrust to go all the way back, I can get it at idle but that's about it. I've tried many inputs in settings with no luck at all.
    The second issue i have is that with the FCS HOTAS it has a trim wheel on the left hand side which works on everything and some what works on but stops whenever it feels like it.

    Iv attached a video so that people can understand what I mean, during the video I'm moving the trim wheel on my controller all the way back and forth.

    Have the same setup, but you can't "toggle" the reverse. What's working atm is setting your reverse to "decrease thrust quickly" or something like this. Good old FSX times where you had to use F2 for this....

    I hope they can sort this out because i am very used to toggle the reverse.

      I used toggle before then changed it to hold as toggle wasn't doing anything for me and iv tried that method to with F2, still doesn't work for me

      yeah that still does nothing for me in any of the decrease

    I have mine mapped to "Decrease Throttle", but you need to press and hold for the reversers to kick in. It's the same as the CRJ. To deactivate, need to forward throttle. Hopefully that works?

      There may be some Airbus/Boeing confusion here.

      If I recall correctly, on the Airbus the thrust lever moves backwards from idle into the REV region after the pilot opens a "gate" device that prevents inadvertent reverser deployment. In the Boeing, the pilot lifts up on the reverse thrust levers in order to deploy the reversers. These levers are attached to, but operate independently of the main thrust levers.

      I use a Thrustmaster TWCS throttle and assign a convenient button to the HOLD THROTTLE REVERSE THRUST function. Upon touchdown and with the thrust lever at idle, I press and hold the button while moving the throttle lever forward. Works like a charm. The F2 or DECREASE THROTTLE assignment also works, but I don't think one has full control of the amount of reverse thrust. When correctly set up, the thrust lever operation is fully animated in the PMDG 737.

          Im going to give that a try, im using a TM warthog throttle and even though it has a detent for reverse thrust i havent been able to find the right binding yet

          UPDATE- Works great John , perfect
