Reverse thrust N1 too low

Post by Driver170 » 27 Sep 2019, 22:05

I see max reverse thrust in Prosim737 is around 67% or something but in all real world clips of the 737NG max reverse is high as 82%

Anyway this can be changed or something?

If you have a look at the aircraft.cfg file you will see this:
reverser_available = 0.82

That means 82%, so all I can do about it is just that.
If it constantly gives you figures much lower, that probably means your hardware is interfering somehow.

But pls. mind it that 82% is the actual maximum, that can be 5-10% lower depending on weather and other factors.
Actually 67% is too low, that's why I suggest to start checking your THQ first.

Hi lapi,

Nothing to do with my TQ. My previous TQ done the same and many other Prosim737 members have observed the same. If i assign it through FSUIPC i get 87% range so definitely not my Cockpitforyou Motorized TQ. I’m sure i changed this figure last year but i still got 67%.

I have opened a support ticket also to resolve this issue it’s definitely a prosim problem.

Although I'm not certain but seriously doubt ProSim would interfere in getting a simple percentage out of the lever.
But hopefully Humberto will tell if it's the case.

I don't have a CFY TQ so cannot test.
If you are standing on the ground and apply full reverse, what N1 do you get?

Hopefully Humberto can jump in.

I will test later this Afternoon and get back to you. But yesterday i can remember a value about 67% at full reverse.

Just checked in the .cfg and it says Reverser available = 0.82

I PM a user and he also observes atleast 67% N1 on full reverse.

Support ticket raised to get this bug re-solved.

Thanks

Same issue here. I only get 62% maximum on my thrust reversers. Homemade throttle using switches programmed through Prosim.

Its a Prosim737 issue and it needs addressed!!!

Please stop crying out your false conclusions with 3 exclamation marks!!!
You probably know the fairy-tale about the shepherd-boy, the village and the wolf.
Scare the villagers when the wolf is really there...

Did you do the test while standing on the ground at ISA conditions?
I guess you did not, otherwise you would have said so.

While standing on ground and applying reverse, I get 79.1% of N1, which is absolutely correct.
(I did a screenshot for you, but this bloody board says "the attachment quota has been reached", so I can't upload it).

But it is 79.1% and that's what you should also get, unless one of you hardware components somehow interfere.
