The Repository to use is
If you wish to have this unit as a HID device, this can be achieved by pushing the MC Switch to 1OFF (Left Position), Holding the FCS Reset Button down and flicking MC all the way to the Right 2OFF in one Push.
The unit will flash and then function as a USB HID Joystick Controller. Please note, this may not appear in Game Controllers, but this will work perfectly fine for any game and will require mapping to be done in most games.
If you wish to switch back to DCSBIOS Mode this can be achieved by pushing the MC Switch to 2OFF (Right Position), Holding the FCS Reset button down and flicking MC all the way to the LEFT 1OFF in one Push.
The unit will flash and then function through DCSBIOS.
Please note the Rud Trim and ILS Channel Encoders Don’t know “where they are” on start-up, so you need to ensure it is in the correct position before plugging it in.
In DCSBIOS the backlight is controlled by the in-game control.
In HID mode The Backlit Brightness is controlled by Pressing FCS Reset and Rud Trim at same time and using the Oxy flow Knob to adjust to desired level.
