Once more I have a very strange situation,and in spite of my efforts I have not been able to fix the problem feeling terrible bad and frustrated.
Problem is that once the reverse lever is pulled down to engage the reverse, only engine 1 activates the reverse,the lever in the cockpit moves to its position, and engine 2 does absoluttly nothing.,pulling the plane to the right.
The following is the way I have configured my 2 quadrant yoke in which I have Boeing B737 levers:
Right Lever of Pro Quadrant USA:
Event Axis change. Actions Trhottle without reverser(engine 1)
Right Reverser Event Button Pressed. Action Send THOTTLE1_DECR-Event(Parameter 16383)
Button Released. Action Send THROTTLE1_CUT-Event
Middle Lever of Quadrant Yoke:
Event Axis change. Action Axis Range 16383-16383 CONTROL AXIS THROTTLE2-SET
Middle Reverser: Event Pressed(Mode1)Action Send THOTTLE2_DECR-Event(Parameter 16383)
Event Released(Mode2)Action Send THROTTLE2_CUT-Event
Have double checked that there are no events assigned by checking all of the axis settings at the Options Control
And to be double sure I have clicked out the check that marks the Enable Controller
Appreciate some thought,ideas, on the matter to help me fix this
I think, without testing, that the way you have set up Throttle2 is the cause of your issues. I would Delete the Throttle and Add it using Standard Axis (as you did for Throttle1!).
Throttles for eng 1 and 2 Axis Change- Throttle without Reverser( Engine and (Engine2)
Both throttles work perfect
Reverse on Eng 1 which is the one working and lever is on the Pro Quadrant USB setting is:
Event Button Pressed Action send THROTTLE1_DCRC-Evente Parameter 16383
Event Button released Send THROTTLE1_CUT-Event
the Add Event when clicked brings up the Button Pressed and Button released
However for the Reverse on eng2 which is still not working, when I click on the Quadrant (yoke) Add Event what I get is:
Pressed(Mode1-3) and Release(Mode1-3) which I do not know if they have a different meaning than the Add Event on the Pro Quadrant(yoke) that reads Button pressed and Button released.
So that is why this second engine reverse setting is:
Event Pressed(Mode2) Action send THROTTLE2_DCRC-Event Parameter 16383
Event Released (Mode2) Send THROTTLE2_CUT-Event
Appreciate your comments
On the Pro Yoke it is a rolling "disc" switch. Right Side and you use your index finger to set it.
On the Cessna Yoke it is in the same place but is a larger Slide switch.
The switch can be quite stiff initially but will loosen up with use. If it will NOT move you could try a VERY small squirt of CRC (using the little "straw" they provide) or similar. Probably wait and see what other people say before trying as I haven't had to do this on my Yoke. I have only used this on the Multi Selector on the Multi Panel
On the Cessna Yoke there is 3 little LEDs on the top of the right handle just above the switch. They turn on to show you the mode.
