Mapping Lighting Switches to Controller Switches

Recommended Posts

Hi all 

I am accumulating quite a bit of peripheral control hardware for my Sim Setup. My goal is to eventually have enough control mapped to hardware to do a flight without resorting to the mouse or keyboard. I also try to have my controllers mounted in a way that approximates the right/left hand ergonomics of the aircraft I'm flying. My current question is this...

How can I map the lighting controls of a given Aircraft Cockpit to hardware controller switches? I have look at the in sim (P3D 4.5) options and they are surprisingly limited in comparison to what most aircraft panels offer on screen. The most common I would want to map would be

Beacon, strobe, nav, taxi, landing

Strobe, landing, panel, all lights, and beacon in like several directions are available. I know there is a way. I often use the FSRadioPanel app and the lights on the switch panel page work correctly. I would like to learn how to do my own mapping to a switch panel.

Thanks

I would look at a program like spad.next.  I'm using it to control my various pieces of hardware and create aircraft specific profiles.

I considered perhaps a macro mapper like that. Could Linda or LUA do that as well?

Thanks
