LJ35 Landing/Taxi light bindings for Honeycomb yoke

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

I am in the process of setting up a profile for the Learjet 35 with the Honeycomb yoke and I managed to get all the variables working correctly except the the landing and taxi lights. Do the standard ">K:TOGGLE_TAXI_LIGHTS" and ">K:TOGGLE_TAXI_LIGHTS" variables not work for the learjet? I am wondering if it is because both of these lights are controlled with the same switch. Is there a different variable I can try to make this work?

Thanks

If you are using FSUIPC or LINDA you can use the Lvar L:TAXI_LAND where :

a value of -1 is all lights off

a value of 0 (or 1) is taxi lights on

a value of 1 is landing lights on 

Note that in the Lear when the Landing lights are on, so also are the Taxi lights.

So basically I should create a mcro file for fsuipc, right? Based on this post right here: 

 

Something like..

[Macros]
1=L:TAXI_LAND=Toggle

Do you have a registered (payware) copy of FSUIPC? If so, I can give you a tiny Lua script for operating the Taxi/Landing light switch using a key or pushbutton.

Or maybe you can use the three position "Mags" rotary switch on the Honeycomb yoke. I don't have that yoke so don't know what assignment options you have with it.

I do have a registered copy of FSUIPC, yes. If you have that script handy I'd like to try it out. If I have multiple LUA scripts running in FSUIPC will it cause a conflict? I also use the autothrottle script you sent me a few months back.

 

Thank you

Script sent. There should not be any conflict with other lua scripts.

Note with each push of a key, or momentary button switch, this script implements a 3-way round robin pattern: All lights off - taxi lights on - both taxi and landing lights on - then back to all lights off, etc.
