I have recently got a MCP Combo II - Boeing and have been encouraged to use Linda rather than VRiSim to operate the unit. I have downloaded the Official Linda Manual, brian 747's Introduction to Linda , lots of reviews and other miscellaneous articles from the internet which I will need to study more closely after the initial read.
However, a question regarding my setup may be required before I start headlong into this project. I have the full Saitek kit used mainly for GA aircraft and small regional prop aircraft, namely; Yoke, extra TQ, Rudder Pedals, Trim Wheel and the Radio, Multi, Switch and Backlit Information Panels. The 4 panels are driven by a freeware program called SPAD (Saitek Panels Advanced Drivers), rather than FSX controls or FSUIPC. Would it be the recommendation to do away with SPAD and run the buttons and knobs with Linda?
I must say SPAD has served me well to date but as I am going into the bigger Boeing jets, to be flown by the MCP Combo II
using Linda programming, I might as well change everything to Linda if this is considered practical.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
