How to assign a button for toggling yaw damper?

Recommended Posts

Guest Butik

Another annoying problem...When I assign a key or a joystick button to toggle the yaw damper (via Options>Controls>Assignments) it allows me to swithc the YD one and off on default planes only. In PMDG the YD switch on overhead does not move at all and does not change anything.As I am using PMDG for flying model only (I build home cockpit -> http://butik.ktm.net.pl/cockpit.htm) I do not want to use PMDG overhead for anything. Thus I should like to change the YD with a yoke button or keybord press. What is more - using the Project Magenta PMSystems software does not help at all. Moving the Yaw Damper switch on PM screen is not possible and does not change a thing.Is it possible to correct the problem?Regards - Michal

None of the overhead switches are "addressable", and the PMDG does NOT use the default yaw damper. So you can not assign any buttons to the overhead panel functions.I just uploaded a document all about interfacing external controllers to the PMDG - you can find it at http://www.metzair.com/download/externalcontrols.pdf
