single brake lever

Post theriddells »

I have built an accurate Spitfire cockpit which has the traditional spitfire control column with the single brake lever. I cannot get the brakes to work.

I previously had the A2A spitfire running under MS Flight X but having replaced my PC I have moved to P3D v4. this of course has meant relearning how to do everything I had previously set up.
I am sure the control mappings for the brake lever worked correctly on my old configuration. Didn't there used to be a Brakes lever assignment in the A2A Aircraft control configuration setup?

I have installed FSUIPC and tried assigning it through that interface but it doesn't seem to make any difference.

Any help will be much appreciated

Hi Sandy,

No custom control inputs are needed for the brakes in the Spit. You can map the brake lever to either the "brake (left axis)" or "brake (rights axis)" axis events in P3Dv4 (or their FSUIPC equivalents).

Bear in mind that the brakes are pneumatically operated, so check the air supply pressure if they're not working. With air in the system, you should also notice that the pressure supplied to the left and right brakes is dependent on the position of the rudder bar.

Thanks,

Nick,
Thank you very much that's working perfectly. Guess I was just looking for it to be more complicated than it has to be.

Regards
Sandy
