Hi.

Is there anyway to map switching transponder between off/standby/on/alt/test in non-g1000 planes like cessna 152 and cessna 172?

I tried 'XPNDR' control with different parameters as well as XPNDR toggle (sb4), XPNDR stby (sb4) as well as offsets x0B6F and x3BE4 but nothing seems to work.

to my knowledge there's never been any built-in facilities for transponders in any version of FS for any aircraft apart from setting the transponder code. Any on/off and mode settings have always been local to the specific gauges in the models, and possibly controllable via Local Panel Variables ("L:Vars") if anything.

Currently there's no chance of accessing anything specific and local to gauges like L:Vars from an external program like FSUIPC. We have requested such facilities from MS/Asobo, but, even then, whether they are applied to such switches is unpredictable.

It looks like there is a new simvar for this - TRANSPONDER_STATE:

Transponder State:[index]
0 = Off
1 = Standby
2 = Test
3 = On
4 = Alt
5 = Ground

 

 

Its also documented as read/write, but looks to be only readable at the moment.

I'll find a free offset and add this, but it won't be writeable until this has been corrected in the SDK/ SimConnect.
