Have LEDS turn on/off for Flaps Landing and Landing Gear Down in DCS Game

Postby TH3BUDDHIST#4085 » Wed Jun 22, 2022 7:41

Hello guys,

I am trying to get the LEDs to function based on certain different actions of the plane in DCS. I will illustrate below since I would have trouble explaining if I don't use picture illustrations.

I currently have "Landing Gear Up/Down" in DCS set to the Physical Assignment of #5. So this button enables and disables the landing gear for me in DCS (tap once to open and tap again to close). Other options in DCS are:
• Landing Gear Up
• Landing Gear Down

Physical Assignment #5


I also currently have "Flaps Landing Position" in DCS set to the Physical Assignment of #4. So pushing this down will only open the flap (pushing it again does not do anything).
*No other options exist in DCS that can drop 'Flaps Landing Position'.

And I have "Flaps Up" in DCS set to Physical Assignment of #7. Pressing this button will raise the flaps up, that is all it does.
Other options in DCS are:
• Flaps Up/Down

What I am trying to achieve:

1. Have the LED On when the Landing Gear is Down and LED to be Off when the Landing Gear is Up:

Landing Gear Up (LED Off)


2. Have the LED On when the Flaps Landing Position is enabled and LED to be Off when the Flaps is Up:

Flaps Landing Position enabled (LED On)
Flaps Up (LED Off).jpg
Flaps Up (LED Off)


I think having these LEDs behave like this will be very cool. I hope this is not too complicated. Thank you in advance.

By the way, this is my Firmware version, I did not update it it is like this out from the box. I only did calibration:

HID-compliant game controller
Product Name: VKBsim Gladiator EVO L
PRO version
T-Link supported
Firmware version: v2.108


Thank you.
TB
