How to program Reverse Thrust on Saitek throttle

For the owners of the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke, here is how to simply set reverse thrust to activate on one of the axis.

With the yoke connected to the computer and flight simulator started you go to control settings and scroll down in the control list to Throttle Decrease Quickly. You will see that it currently has assigned F2 (key you are using to enter into reverse thrust from keyboard). Double click to change the entry and move the desired throttle axis all the way to the bottom (it has a button at that point). You will see that flight simulator assigns that button to the function along side F2. Make sure repeat is set to full.

If you have multiple controllers assigned select the Saitek one before trying to do the above.

How do I get the Repeat stays to full? Everytime I set it to full, it'll change to default when I press ok (while with F2 repeat stays apparently on). Now I have to press the button a few times before reverse comes to full...
