Keys For Toga Button B737?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to use keyboard keys in stead of the upper left screw of the MCP as TOGA button?I will explain.I am using the PMDG B737 in combination with a flight deck I'm building. I have the displays undocked and placed in different monitors. So I don't use the MIP panel anymore, but the CPFlight MCP instead. But when I want to select TOGA speed I have to pop up the MCP window again to push the screw with the mouse pointer. It would be easier if I could use keybord keys (for which I will programm a single key on my Logitech G15 keyboard). So..... is there a keyboard combination for the TOGA button?BTW the N1 button of the CPFlight MCP can be programmed as a TOGA button but I don't get that working. If I could it would be a good alternative.Hans Hartvelt

You can assign any keypress you would like to the TOGA function in the PMDG drop down menu. I use control+z and then assign that to a button on my yoke.Jim Harnes

Hello Jim,As always, the solution is simple, but sometimes you need someone to show you the way.Indeed there is that button assignment menu. I had to find out which key combinations were still free and I opted for CTRL + Y. After that I assigned this combination to a programmable key on my G15 keyboard and tried everything out. Indeed it works fine. Thank you for the tip.
