Spad.next FBW A32NX profile for Honeycomb Bravo Throttle and Logitech Extreme 3D Pro joystick (though should work with any joystick or other device)
I developed this profile for spad.next as many of the calls to operate features of the A32NX are missing from the standard MSFS UI making the default Bravo useless for nearly all lights and the auto pilot. This makes all functional. It also includes a print off template to attach to the bravo.
I have also looked to achieve a good level of automation, paticularly for tasks when you would ordinarily be moving around the airfield and it annoyed my having to mouse around the cockpit to click the mouse whilst taxiing. The aim here is to avoid mouse clicks at all where possible so you can keep your eyes focused on the taxiway, whilst closely aligning to typical real ops.
This has been developed on the Experimental branch though should work just fine with Stable or Development versions.
Axis such as throttle, flaps etc are still configured in sim.
The button configurations below show the split between Honeycomb bravo and Joystick.
If you have issues with first time setup of SPAD, make sure the switches on the Bravo are set as such in the button configuration of SPAD (mine were not)
Developed by Resonate. Nod to PalpableJoker18 for the initial spec and the template printout.
Place the XML file in the folder C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents\SPAD.neXt\profiles
You should then see the Profile in Spad.next.
In the sim remove any assingments clashing with the buttons assigned here. All I have in my MSFS controller profile is axis such as throttle, flaps etc.
