just wondering if anyone knows how I can reverse the trottle so when I'm flying choppers... up (forward) moves up, and back, brings you down?

can't see anything in the control options screen.

thx in advance.

I am not sure if you can. I think the reason they did that is because it is more 'realistic' since in a helo you pull the collective towards you to go up and push it away from you to go down.

Turn it around. ;\)

There's no way to do it in OFP to the best of my knowledge. Your joystick software might let you. Better to just get used to it though, that's how helos are flown.

Basically, pull is 'up' push is 'down'. It's actually far more intuitive than an aircraft, it just doesn't do what you might think a throttle would do, if you're used to other types of vehicles.

I have to agree with Amaroq. Get used to it \:\)

I also used to fly chopper sims with inverted collective (throttle forward to go up) but thanks to OFP I had to learn the proper thing. You'lll be up and running in a week. You won't regret it.
