Hi, I have recently brought msfs and would like to use mobiflight. I was using it with xplane and using xplane direct and data ref tool.
I'm trying to set things up to work with msfs but need a bit of help to get going. (cessna 172)

Do you use FSUIPC events?

I know there is sim connect but for msfs but there doesn't seem to be many presets available.#

Could someone please point me in the right direction how to get started. I will be looking to set things up on the Cessna 172.

Thank you.

Over 10.000 seems not too many ?? :love:

Simply use Simconnect!
For sure you can use FSUIPC also but its more difficult on lots of spots.

Simply use the SEARCH Bar in our Simconnect Interface ( Whatever in Input or Output) by choose for FS2020 Evensts / VAriables.

And not get fixed to C172.... Its a stock aircraft. So just search for "generic" .
Means the generic Preset for e.g. Throttle1 is pretty sure also working for Throttle of C172.
Parking Brake "generic" will work for 95%+ of Aircrafts in FS2020.

So... Not use the filter at beginning... Simply search e.g. for Parking Brake and check the hits. If its more then 30 for sure you can use a filter like "Puplisher = Asobo or = Microsoft to reduce hits.
At the end.... Try out some of the hits until one is working for you.
Good Luck !
