PMDG 747 QOTSII - Speedbrakes??

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I'm just assigning the buttons of my Saitek X56 HOTAS to the PMDG 747 (P3D V4.2, FSUIPC 5.124, LINDA 3.05, PMDG 747 QOTSII module version 1.1).

So far, everything's okay.

Now I want to assign Speedbrake up / down and arm to buttons # 34 - 36 on the throttle.

I can't find assignments for this functions in the "PMDG 747 Module functions" of LINDA.

The PMDG custom event ID's should be 70625, 70622 and 70623.

Assigning these buttons to the PMDG 737 NGX speedbrake functions was succesful.

Am I doing something wrong in the 747 - is it possible to assign PMDG custom event ID's directly to LINDA (doing so via FSUIPC doesn't help, because FSUIPC can only manage the first 32 buttons...)?

 

Help is greatly appreciated, regards Thomas!

Hello Thomas,

have you tried the standard FSX speedbrake arm functions?

Good morning,

where can I find the standard FSX speedbrake arm functions inside LINDA? Inside LIB: Default FSX there is nothing...

Assigning # to the button of the joystick doesn't work...

You are right, my mistake.

You have to choose the FSX controls ("Set FSX Control")

Hi Guensli,

unfortunately this didn't work...

Tried  "FSX: Spoilers off / on / arm set" with the optional parameters 0,1,2...

Any idea??

 

Regards Thomas!

Ok, I had a look into my 747 LINDA assignments (sth. I should have done earlier)

PMDG 747 Module functions --> Pedestal Control Stand --> Speedbrakes arm

Hi guensli,

PMDG 747 Module functions --> Pedestal Control Stand --> Speedbrakes arm (Speedbrakes arm off) works fine, thanks...

But is there a possibility for speedbrake "up" and "down"?

 

Happy easter,

regards Thomas!

Hmmm... When the standard functions do not work, then probably not.

 

I had a look in the SDK and it should be possible. Will implement it

Thomas,

I assume you don't have a free axis where you can assign the spoilers?  That's how i did.

If you have FSUIPC (you have FSUIPC otherwise you can't use LINDA) i think you can assign the spoiler function to even a simple keyboard button.

I tried again, and yes, the FSUIPC spoiler commands should work.

Maybe not the LINDA spoinler commands (maybe a bug), but directly with FSUIPC.

Hi there,

Unfortunately I don't have a free axis anymore... 

And FSUIPC doesn't help because it can't see the buttons 34 to 36 on the joystick... 

I'll try something else, no big deal. 

Thanks a lot for your help!
