PMDG DC-6, force mapping FSX keyboard and control functions?

Recommended Posts

As I listed years ago, the PMDG DC-6 is far from perfect.

https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/516911-pmdg-dc-6-current-state-seems-a-bit-underwhelming/

I'm back into FSX and see PMDG still didn't address much. (the see-through engine area isn't even fixed?!! pathetic)

 

So I'm trying to find work-arounds for their prerogatives:

  1. throttle increase/decrease using game controller buttons
  2. Propeller Low/Propeller High using keyboard keys
  3. Mixture control using keyboard keys
  4. Shift+E then # door activation using keyboard keys
  5. map appropriate lights to default keyboard keys

 

Will the payed version of FSUIPC be able solve everything on my list?

From what I've read LINDA 'only' does controller buttons, not keyboard keys, correct?

 

I'm not familiar with FSUIPC limitations so any help or redirects are appreciated.

Thank you.

The PMDG DC-6 has a virtual co-pilot that operates the throttles and mixture via commands to the co-pilot from a drop down menu. This probably has to be disabled to operate the throttles and mixture reliably yourself via your controllers and keyboard. Since I don't have much time in the plane I never graduated to the point of using it without the virtual co-pilot.
