• 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.

Switch control between aircrafts

Hello guys,

I am working on a plugin/modification to control and monitor multiple unmanned aircrafts (or UAVs) at the same time. In order to control these UAVs I’m looking for a way to change the “aircraft in use” to another aircraft within the same simulation instance.

So for example, we have 3 UAVs and other traffic in one simulation instance and I want to monitor all 3 UAVs. That’s already possible by reading the simulation parameters of the UAVs (like position, altitude, heading, etc.).
Now I want to implement a functionality to take control of one of the UAVs. So my question is: Do you know of any way to do that? Is there a plugin/mod for this already? Or is this already possible and I didn’t know of it?

As for now, I’m not limited to a specific flight simulator. I’m considering X-Plane, FlightGear and FSX as possible simulators. At the moment it is more a question of the general possibility than the implementation in a specific flight simulator.
I’m glad for any help.

Thank you!
