• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

P3D v3 Assigning and Remapping Controls


I’m about to make a replica cockpit of the Dynamic WT-9. I use the Lionheart Creations Aerospool WT-9 Dynamic.

I have trouble finding the right assignment’s for certain functions, like magneto 1 and 2 (only able to use the mouse). The developer does noe have any information about the available assignable keys, so I start to believe a need to make a custom fix. If so, the question is how can I do so...

The magneto can be manipulated using M+ and M- (increase and decrease magneto position). This selects None, Right, Left, and Both.
Yes, but i want to use 1 button for each. The WT-9 has two switches. I want to make to switches to make a realistic cocpit.
I start to believe a need to make a custom fix. If so, the question is how can I do so...

Custom Key assignments to control Events such as magneto switch position can be coded in an XML gauge. The process involves trapping a keyboard (Key) entry and subsequently firing the desired magneto Event. For example, the following enables engine 1 right magneto when the W key is typed.
  <On Key="W">

The list of magneto Events available in FS can be found here.

For more discussion of Key Traps and Events and Traps, please refer to these FSDeveloper wikis:

Events and Traps

Hope this helps,

Thank you BOB (rpmc). This makes progress!
I use a Joystick, is it possible to assign a button for toggel magneto01 right?
