Touch screen flight controls?

Recommended Posts

Touch screen device.

 

Put controls on screen.

Move them around with your digits.

 

Controls include levers push buttons switches etc.

( you can even create logic for the switches, change lever response etc )

 

and then the thing creates a virtual device driver for windows and

when you plug it in it's a virtual controller.

 

Essentially you can get rid of expensive button/lever boxes with one

large touchscreen pad thingy. Which you can glue to your leg....

 

Salute!

Yes, they exist. There is a thread somewhere discussing one. Not tried it myself.

 

No good for VR, obviously...

Ah ha! It is a thing. Great. I was probably re remembering a thing what I had already seen... ( Brain is a bit borked etc )

 

ipad? a what? ...

 

I am slowly revisiting the fact that BSR is actually a quite good chap.

Maybe I have forgetted that time we buried the hatchet and shook hands. ( or was that someone else...)

Crate of free Brandy? It's a care package care of the other other officers mess... S!

 

and now I am stuck being wee again.

 

I wave my tiny fists in rage! Death to the Jets!

 

Salute!

Planky.

 

PS. Is there a similar application that is not based on a apple device?

heresy, I say! 😄  For DCS - sure.. but for WWII war birds? come on! 

 

Although that bomber layout with gunnery stations/sight/bay doors/bom sight <--- that's definitely helpful. In general, for the people without button boxes this is awesome!

It’s also a great way to test out what you actually need on a button box, before wiring up a bunch of switches you will never use on it!
