X52Pro Speedbrake arming via Slider?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

First, as I have written in the title, I own the X52Pro. My main question is to ask, if it is possible to move the slider on the throttle to move the speedbrakes, escpecially in the B738 or B772 from PMDG? In FSUIPC5 the axis is known as axis S. I'm too inexperienced of these tons of buttons to make them move the speedbrake lever, although hoping that it is possible? Does anybody have a clue? Any answer is appreciated.

Regards, Ralf

Speed brake is known as "spoiler", so simple assign to the spoiler axis. Of course, PMDG might be doing their own thing and may need an alternative approach using their own added controls, but try the "axis spoiler set" control first.

Buttons aren't really relevant for an axis.

Thank you, Pete, for your fast reply.

I have assigned the axis as you have written, but nothing happens. As you have mentioned, PMDG seems to have their own thing. Assigning the spoilers to a button or a rocker switch works perfectly. It's a pity that I can't use my slider for anything, but then it's the way it is. Thanks anyway.

So they have a digital speedbrake with what, only off, armed, flight and landing? No intermediate positions possible?

If so, you CAN still assign to those button actions using an axis. it's a bit more complicated. basically you use the right-hand side of the Axis Assignments dialogue instead, don't assign on the left to an axis control. You'd define positions (actually zones) on the slider movement where you want the different assignments to operate, on the way up, down or both.

See page 37 of the FSUIPC5 User guide.
