I just reinstalled OPF to try out the latest FFUR mod
but when flying the choppers my throttle is reversed. I am sure it worked fine last time I had it installed. I know this might be the game trying to simulate the real Helo's controls, but I prefer to have it the other way around.
Anyone know how to reverse the throttle axis?


From the hills rebounding
Let this war cry sounding
Summon all at Cambria's call
The mighty force surrounding

Men of Harlech onto glory
This shall ever be your story
Keep these fighting words before ye
Welshmen never yield

That's interesting. As I said in my post on Flying the OFP Helos, I wasn't sure my Cougar Throttle was doing ANYTHING, though it SEEMED like it might be functioning as a Helicopter style collective some of the time. This was my preferred mode, but I was also looking for reverse collective option just in case it defaulted to jet collective. I couldn't find an in game setting.

Throttle direction aside, could you fly the helos using just stick and throttle or did you (like me) have to resort to the keyboard to get the full dynamics (e.g. landing). No matter what I did with my throttle, I couldn't seem to reduce torque enough to descend, or to reduce speed after diving for the deck and then attempting to level out to a hover.

I havent installed the FFUR mod yet, but using BAS-Complete.
