FSUIPC+Flight1 Mustang+Goflight Autopilot


Recommended Posts

I will be purchasing FSUIPC to configure my CH Products Yoke and Rudder Pedals. And I was hoping FSUIPC will aid me in the following:

I will also be obtaining the Flight1 Mustang, and would like to use the GoFlight GF-MCP Advanced Autopilot Module.....But have been frustrated trying to find out if they are compatible (Posts on forums, and emails to GoFlight and Flight1). Will FSUIPC assist in "linking" the Mustang to the hardware Autopilot, if it turns out they are not compatible out of the box?

Thanks, Bill.

Really? Wow! Does a Mustang actually have an MCP?

The MCP with the Mustang? If the Mustang supports the functions of an MCP and has a way of operating those functions, then the answer would probably be yes -- but you need to ask someone who knows the aircraft.

If (a) the mustang has an autopilot, and (B) the Mustang autopilot is controllable by keystroke or button press, then yes, of course. All FSUIPC offers is the ability to make such assignments. If the A/P is only mouse-controllable then you might need something like "Key2Mouse" and a fixed window.

The displays on the MCP would only be updated if the Mustang A/P is actually based or is identical to the default FS A/P. If they have programmed an entirely independent A/P it is most unlikely that you could get the data for display, the there is a small chance they could be found as "L:Vars" and the displays programmed via an FSUIPC Lua plug-in.

Just out of interest, Pete, as I got caught out by this one when I first saw the post, I think swanfly is referring to the F1 Cessna Citation Mustang, rather than the P-51D.

I'm not sure if that counts as a clever bit of marketing or not, on the part of Raytheon, but it is full glass cockpit. ;)

On topic, I believe from what others have said that the autopilot on the aircraft is custom built, so probably LUA (which I don't claim to understand yet...) or Key2Mouse are the way forward. Unfortunately I don't have it, so can't confirm this.

Ah ... I (think I) see!
