    I know this question might be found very silly and ridiculous by the experts, but I do not really know much about orientation of TL and Surge or if this 2 axis can actually be reversed in software.

    I am intending to use Flypt @pmvcda as motion software.

    I know the usual SFX100 build have the TL actuator located on the right of the sim pushing towards left--my setup has the actuator on the left pushing towards right.

    Usually SFX100 surge actuator pushes towards the back of the sim, My actuator is located on the back pushing towards the front.

    I am in the stage of building at the moment and i need to make sure i am installing these in the correct orientation or at least if there is a "reverse" function in Flypt.

    Any help will be much appreciated.
