Default Toggle switches to help VR pilots

Hello OctopusG


This is a request to include a few toggle switches especially for the complex undercarriage arrangement which I am loving getting to grips with. In VR I have to stick to my HOTAS and it would really assist people like me to have the gear lock and gear brake switches as a toggle on/off.


Thank you for your consideration.

You may use the "landing gear next stage" control, it sets every lever in the correct position for every stage in the LG operation so you don't have to operate them manually or remember what the correct position should be in every stage, specially wearing VR.

Hello mate, yes I am well aware of that little aid that the developer included. Part of the satisfaction with this aircraft is the smooth application of the complex routine involved in undercarriage deployment and retrieval. I don't use any assists or aids with flight sims as I prefer to get as close to the numbers as I can.
That is why it would be a great boon for enthusiasts/nerds like myself to have the option of using toggle switches for each of the 4 functions involved. It's all about immersion when using VR.
