uncheck-controlsHow to configure a Button?

  1. In order to be able to use FSUIPC as a driver, it is necessary to disable the local controllers. So, Start FSX goto Options>>Settings>>Controls and uncheck on tab CALIBRATION  Enable Controllers; close with OK.
  2. In FSX goto Add-ons >>FSUIPC >> select Buttons + Switches >> check box Profile specific >> the aircraft name appears in the FSUIPC Options and Settings screen. (Don’t touch the hardware yet…)
  3. Just to follow the sequence of how to configure a button, e.g. on the yoke:
  4. buttons-switchesPress the joystick button you wish to program. Just below you see two boxes: PRESS and BUTTON.
  5. Now, press the little red button underneath the left yoke grip; the text in the boxes PRESS and BUTTON will change into a value of Joy# en Btn# (in my case Joy#1 and Btn#0) These numbers correspond with the information from the instruction for use from a Yoke or Joystick. In FSUIPC the Yoke: Joy#1 and the Buttons are numbered Btn#0 ./. Btn#39.
  6. Check the box Select for FS control and a field called Control sent when button pressed will open.
  7. In this drop down menu you make a choise for the function you want to attach to the button. Select AtC; close with OK. Done!
  8. Reminder: If you want the B1/B2 buttons for trim up/down, the command must be repeated. Configuring e.g. Elev Trim Dn (Up) check the box Control to repeat while held and set the same action again in the box below.
