Excellent X-56 SPD Brake mod right here


Recommended Posts

I love this mod.  It makes it so much easier to control the speed brakes.  It is kinda a pain to reinstall it every time ED releases an update though.  Does anyone know if there's a way to change the slider control in the HUD programming software so it works as a two position switch?  If we can do that, then you would be able to get the speedbrakes to work properly without adding a keybind.

Here you go...shift-B is forward to raise sb

control-B is back to lower sb

With this command the sb will retract when flaps are lowered...as it should but does not retract with the mod unfortunately.

 

This macro allows just enough time for the command to stay active just long enough for the sb to move through its motion.

that was worth a shot, but it doesn't work.  As far as I can tell HUD doesn't see the difference between Left Shift and Shift, so DCS doesn't recognize the command.  Also, that means that the slider now types capital B constantly in one position or switches to bold in the other.  I might try it with other key combos, but for now I guess I'm stuck with the mod.

You can just add R Shift + B for the same command in DCS so it will work for either Shift key. As far as I can tell, it isn't assigned to anything else (for F/A-18C Sim anyway)
