You will see a line added in your controls called Speed Brake Switch EXTEND/RETRACT. Map the slider to it and there you go.


I hope DCS integrates into F18 and F16 next update (I'm on Stable... maybe already on Beta).

My solution for the F16 speed brake is to use an "Advanced Command" in saiteks software.
You set the command to hold shift b for 1.05 seconds, that is just enough to open the speed brake fully.
See attached picture.
