- ADF frequency and ADF card selection.
- COM 1/2 and transponder selection.
- Autopilot with altitude, vertical speed, and airspeed settings.
- Gyro drift and altimeter pressure settings.
- Landing ratings (vertical speed at touchdown).
- Simulation rate controls.
How do I run MSFS MCA?
Make sure your PC and your mobile device are connected to the same local network. Start a flight and launch the app. Then open the IP-address as instructed in the command prompt that launches with MSFS MCA. For more information visit the GitHub project page.
Which devices are supported?
Practically any device with a web browser is supported. You can use MSFS MCA on your PC locally, a second notebook, Mac, Android or iOS device. Even Windows Phone should work. Beware that older devices may not work properly.
Are there any bugs?
Sure, there are. You’ll find a list of known issues on the GitHub page.
What future development plans do you have?
I’d love to get feedback from the community and see whether you like it. I will be adding additional functionalities later. I might for example merge it with my previous tool, the MSFS Landing Inspector. I’m developing MSFS MCA because I’m very passionate about this sim, but please keep in mind that I’m doing this in my free time.
Enjoy and let me know whether you like it!
