Wing42 B247D SPAD.NEXT Profile Creation

Hello fellow simmers, I was having a hell of a time getting my HC Alpha/Bravo mapping with just MSFS mappings. A lot of the controls were only mappable using LVARs. I was able to create a functional profile with the wobble pump using the paid MSFS version of SPAD.NEXT. I published the profile in the app. You need to be in the Alpha/Beta channel. Enjoy!

I was having a hell of a time getting the com radio to work above .9 on the decimal side. Mouse drag tuning couldn’t go there either. I found the .xml to modify (back it up first)

C:\Users<your user>\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\Packages\Official\OneStore\wing42-boeing-247d\ModelBehaviorDefs\wing42-boeing-247\Radio.xml

Find the stanza:

I’ve been testing out my profile and have had to make a few adjustments:

One thing I did was to fix an issue with the gear lever. My HC Bravo only has two positions Up and Down like many other controllers. The issue is this plane has three positions Up, Down and Neutral. If you leave the lever in the Up or Down position for too long it will blow the gear lever fuse. To fix this I put a 20 second timer on each position so that when you put it up or down it holds that position for 20 seconds giving time for the gear to move and then returns to Neutral.

I tweaked how the rotary dial works for the decimals I now have it moving in .025 increments.

I added accelerators to the the rotary dials so that if you are continually moving it increases the movement by a multiplier.

The Profile has been republished.
