Throttle Set Event IDs explanation

we have :

AXIS_THROTTLE_SET
AXIS_THROTTLE1_SET
..
AXIS_THROTTLE4_SET

then

THROTTLE_AXIS_SET_EX1
THROTTLE1_AXIS_SET_EX1
..
THROTTLE4_AXIS_SET_EX1

then

THROTTLE_SET
THROTTLE1_SET
..

Hello @uraymeiviar ,

You're right, those are event ID used to set the throttle lever.

The difference is that SET_EX supports reverse thrust (after setting KEY_THROTTLE_REVERSE_THRUST_TOGGLE) which means we can use it to set negatives values to the throttle when the inputs are positives

I hope this helps :)

Regards,
Boris

The input I am referring to is the value of the throttle axis that is binded to THROTTLE1_AXIS_SET_EX1.

So let's say this axis has a value of 1, after pressing the key THROTTLE_REVERSE_THRUST_TOGGLE, the value of THROTTLE1_AXIS_SET_EX1 will be -1.
