Does SITL support simulating reverse thrust?

If I turn on reverse thrust (set THR_MIN to -100%) the simulated aircraft simply starts armed and taking off. And on landing it’s speed is much higher. Is reverse thrust simulated?

I got a response on a GitHub defect that I incorrectly used to ask this question. It says:
“reverse thrust is simulated. You do need to start the SITL model with
“-revthrurst”, however.”

Unfortunately when I tried this the simulator complained that option -r is not supported.

Thanks,

Something like:

./Tools/autotest/sim_vehicle.py --gdb --debug -v ArduPlane -f plane-revthrust --map

Thanks for the help. I will give that a shot. Actually I was able to get it to work by hard coding the reverse thrust boolean to true in the SITL code. That was actually more intuitive for me then trying to figure out the correct commands in the correct order to the sim_vehicle script.

Thanks,

hey jonathan, may you show us which changes you apply to the SITL code?

It’s been two years, I don’t remember what I did. But it’s pretty simple python code so it should be easy enough to grep through the file and find the line that needs to be changed.
