Possible to assign speedbrakes to logitech extreme 3D pro as analogue?

Recommended Posts

I would like for my speedbrakes/spoilers to work in analog and not digital mode... default its either extended all the way or retracted all the way, I can't manually set them to the exact settings I want. Is there a way to assign the spoilers extend/retract mode to a button on a joystick, so for example if I hold button A for a while it will slowly and gradually extend the spoilers until I let go of the button and so forth? This would make it much easier to control the plane during approaches.

Yes FSUIPC is the way to go. You can either setup the throttle to act as a speedbrake if you are in a glider (don't need throttle) or assign a couple of buttons. I'm not at the PC now working from memory but there is a long list of available FS commands you can assign to buttons in FSUIPC and you scroll through till u get to spoilers inc and spoilers dec. You can even make it airplane specific.

I do not have that stick but using the FSUIPC paid version I set one of the axis to control spoiler.

I use another axis for the gears, but for that one I had to get more creative. I defined range 1 (eg input increasing 15000 to 16xxxx) to trigger gear up and range 2 (eg input decreasing -16xxx to 15000) to trigger gear down. 

FSUIPC opens a new world of flexibility.
