Orion HDG and CRS knobs


Recommended Posts

Hello all!

 

I have recently took delivery of the Orion throttle and I basically downloaded and used the winwing binds with a couple of alterations. Now question is as per title, why can i not manipulate the F-18 HDG or CRS bugs via the rotating knobs on the throttle?

 

I see that there is no axis type configurations to these in the settings but is there a way around it?

 

Thanks!

It's not an axis, but a rotary encoder presumably, so for each click it makes, it transmits a single signal which can be mapped to a key press (different for left and right turn, naturally).

Yeah the problem being when you rotate the knob it moves the switch at the bottom of the UFC but it does it so quickly that it dosent register on any of the HDG or CRS bugs.

Hmm, I see. I presume you're mapping it in DCS directly? One solution would be to use a middle man software (e.g. WinWing, Gremlin, etc.) which allows you to set more precisely press and release timings (e.g. for each click on the encoder, press this key combination for that long) which you could then experiment with until the switch on the bottom of the UFC is held long enough to move the CRS or HDG values by a single degree.
