Can you assign a control set to an airplane?

Recommended Posts

Can you assign a set of control profiles to, say, the TBM and another set to the Citation Sovereign?

Hmmm...I'm not sure.  But I know there is an open beta of FSUIPC around (which would allow what you ask)

Thanks Ryan.  I guess I'll need to try that.

This has been my question for oh, 5 months! I havn't found a way yet but was told with no proof that it was possible.

The only way I know of to do this is to create profiles and switch the profiles when you switch planes. So, yes you can have multiple profiles, but I am not aware of a way to associate them with a plane. Basically just like P3D/FSX.

This may be useful, especially for those that have a yoke for Boeing, etc. and a Joystick for Airbus.

Hi: I think that there are two ways to accomplish this, based, in part, on this video:

1.  I downloaded FSUIPC 7 Beta for MSFS 2020 last night.  According to the instructions that came with program, you can copy an FSUIPC&.ini file from another set up (like FSUIPC6 for P3D V5), and it should carry over your settings.  I haven't had time to use this yet.

2.  From the video, every controller located by the program is assigned a default setup which cannot be overwritten.  When you change from the default assignments, the program asks you for a new name for the profile. You can set up a profile for each plane and then save the profile for each plane with a different name.  At the top of the controllers screen you should see a separate title bar for each controller with arrows on either side. You can cycle through the different setups you have saved, and select the one you  want to use.

Hope this helps. Mike Gutierrez, North Hollywood, California.

Yes, the profiles are by controller, so I have two profiles for my Saitek throttle; one for jets, where I have spoilers, engine 1 and engine 2 mapped - and another for the props, where I have throttle, prop and mixture mapped. It is easy to swap back and forth.

I could not figure out how to assign a controller to a specific aircraft although I did make several profiles for my throttle quad - one for jets, one for props.  How do you assign by aircraft?

Only way I found so far without using 3rd party was to name the controller profile with the plane model in the name, and change to it when changing the plane.
