FlightControlReplay v5 [Released]

Recommended Posts



FlightControlReplay version 5 for Microsoft Flight Simulator and Prepar3D 5.x is a complete tool to handle an easy and efficient Replay, to record MP4 videos, with capability of creating enhanced flightsim content with advanced and innovative features.


  • The new March23 Update expands again the list of supported advanced airliner add-ons with the addition of both the FlyByWire Simulations freeware A32NX, and Salty 747-400 freeware Mod in MSFS.
  • Refined improvements for Fenix A320, also in MSFS with 100% accuracy of spoilers, flaps, and gear animations). I also added support of all FCU, lights, APU video Recording and Replay.

About aircraft integration, we start to support the popular HPG H145 helicopter, from Version 2 Build 399.
The initial support includes the reproduction of cyclic pedals, and collective control of the H145.
In the future, there will be a complete integration of FlightControlReplay V5 with HPG products for full animations support during Replay and Video recording. Note that Live Ghost is not supported yet.

This device allows players with reduced mobility to play and control their video games. By adding customized buttons and joysticks, such people can enjoy their hobby with accurate control. For example, you can manage MSFS and FlightControlReplay V5 !
If you configure Slider move Forward or Slider move Backward feature with either Xbox Adaptive Controller, or another standard joystick, and if you keep pressed the button on the device, the slider will now move fast forward or fast backward.

Based upon users feedback, I’m also happy to introduce 2 new features in FlightControlReplay V5:
1. AUTORECORD you can activate a new option that makes the Record to start automatically whenever you start a new flight. And the recording sessions also automatically ends when you return to the main menu of Flight Simulator.
2. and a second handy feature is to set Pause to the recording at the same time when you set a pause in Flight Simulator. This way, you can still check something aside during the Live flight, and you always end with a smooth Recording session in the end without noticing that you had to use Pause.

I’ve been already in touch with Flylillo group to create the first virtual cockpit emulation for XBOX Adaptive Controller. The device of Microsoft will be combined with the HUB software manager Logitech G to help disabled persons for a better experience in flight simming hobby.
That’s a separate and new project, out of FCR scope, but we are trying to find money (with Microsoft and an Italian bank) to fund this inclusive project.

Microsoft officially supports this action, and recently communicated about it with one of their public post about Community Spotlight: Lillo and Roberto - Microsoft Flight Simulator

Hello, After the latest update I am no longer able to replay the recorded file. After loading the file (recorded using the latest version) moving the slider to the left and tried to play but nothing except the yoke in flight were moving! but the plane remained still. Please advise ASAP. Thanks. As I only used the basic function for replay and really hopefully there no need to re-learn with each updates please!

When you are investigating about what Replay tool can meet your expectation, check if your aircraft add-ons will be correctly supported. 

FlightControlReplay 5 has the widest list of supported airplanes and helicopters with custom code for MSFS ! Although the majority of these addons have advanced programs, and sometimes not as expected according to MSFS sdk, my tool allows to Replay these aircraft accurately in your flightsim instead of a flying brick.

You will be able to seat back and watch the full aircraft operation on the ground and in the air, during approach and landing, with its respective animations. And to spice it up, you can even activate the Cinematic Replay to change automatically the angles of view during Replay.

If you think that MSFS has been missing a replay tool, FlightControlReplay 5 has many features to cover your needs. And on top of them, you will appreciate that it is integrated with MSFS : 
- from the tool bar FCR icon, call and hide your Replay tool
- the user interface is then displayed directly as a transparent layer above your main flightsim window, so you don't have to leave your session to start or load a Replay, to activate the Ghost Live or the Cinematic replay.

Hello !

Important news for helicopter pilots in MSFS, with the release of the update V2.0 for Hype Performance Group H145. This very advanced simulation "*comes with many new features, refinements and bug fixes - but most importantly our H145 now takes advantage of the native helicopter flight model implemented by Asobo in Sim Update 11 while also maintaining our custom stability and autopilot features that are found in the real world H145.*"

For users of FlightControlReplay 5 who already got my last version March Update, your Replay tool is already compatible with the new helicopter model. 

Custom support included for this HPG H145 v2 :
- Tablet integration of FCR5 Interface in the virtual cockpit : load/save replay, start/stop recording, Cinematic Replay, ReLive features are directly accessible 
- Pedals, cyclic and collective controls are actually supported for an accurate replay of your helicopter in MSFS

Hello Fabio, hope all is well.

Hoping that you will consider adding Custom Support in Version 5 for the Asobo/Working Title 787-10 and 747-8.  With the AAU2 update, these are now very capable airliners (even though they are default aircraft).  Their popularity is sure to increase!

Thank you for considering this request 🙂

When you run a recording session of your flight simulator, you have to deal at the same time with the game window and with FlightControlReplay 5 interface.

2 Weeks ago, I reminded the capability to use the MSFS integrated interface of my recording and replay tool : practical and direct access for a quick replay.

In difference for a video production, you don't want any other interface to be displayed in the final result. That's why you will prefer to use the standard Windows of FlightControlReplay 5. And you will particularly appreciate how it can be customized, modified, to be adapted to your monitor layout, resolution.

You can switch between the three sizes available, and on top of it, you can also turn it in transparency mode. Limit the space used on your monitor, or keep the maximum size if you need all the buttons visible.

Of course, AAU2 is just in beta right now.  What I'm really asking for is once the beta is over and the changes go live.

Thank you!
