pilot and co-pilot


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Anyone knows how it is possible to get 2 joysticks working together for the same axis in FS ? I mean, for a pilot / co-pilot enviroment, with independent controls for each pilot...

Thanks,

Ulisses

On a real plane those sticks are linked together so that they both move together. There is just one set of control surfaces as well.

FSUIPC has facilities for up to 4 each of aileron, elevator, rudder, throttle, left and right brakes. Please see the section entitled "Multiple Joysticks" in the Advanced Users Guide supplied in the FSUIPC.ZIP package.

You don't really get "independent" control -- that would be impossible, as there's only one set of ailerons, elevators, and so on to control, and why would one pilot want to climb/bank left whilst the other descended/banked right? :) FSUIPC takes the maximum deflection of each of the 4 connected controls in each case, so it is best if the non-flying pilot just left them alone.

Regards,

Pete

Is there a way to have a pilot/copilot scenery when both pilots are in different locations (remotely connected) and be able to work from the same cockpit?

Not at present. The assorted links between two FS installations always have one of them as Master and the other Observer (WidevieW and MP in observer mode), or flying different aircraft (normal multiplayer).

You could conceivably use the master/observer type link and have some programming to transmit the controls from one PC to the other, but I suspect the latency would make it a bit erratic. A better alternative would be to swap the master/observer roles when control is passed from one pilot to the other, but then you haven't really got dual controls as such.

Regards,

Pete
