Hi I'm wondering if there's a way to for example push a button to invert the logic on my throttles to activate reverse thrust. Thanks! Also, is it better to use pots or encoders for the lighting axises? I was poking around and couldn't seem to find an axis that worked for the asobo Skyhawk glareshield lights but there seems to be values for encoders for everything.

Sorry for the late response. I think most of the Mobiflight support has moved to the Discord community server.
I think most of the events in the sim are coded as encoders because there are no real potentiometers to operate the virtual cockpit. Just mouse clicks and mouse wheel.
Having said that, you can also convert most encoder events to be used in Mobiflight with a potentiometer. It just takes a bit of math. There is a tool in Hubhop to help with doing the math for all kinds of potentiometer events.
