Saitek Throttle & PMDG reversers

Post by Mike Butler » 24 Dec 2019, 22:01

Does this software handle mapping the reverse position on the Saitek throttle quadrant levers to the the thrust reversers on PMDG aircraft (737NGX/NGXu etc)?

The reverse position on the Saitek throttle is part of the axis potentiometer which is sectioned off in the firmware and delivered to windows as a button press.

And I have PMDG NGX reverses working on a push button/switch, so yes it’s possible to map PMDG reverse to a button/switch which is what the bottom axis indent is.

There should be other posts on this subject in the forum
