Profiles and how to use them
FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 has lots of options available to you, but going through every panel to change them whenever you change an aircraft, would be a tedious task. FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 therefore features a strong profile functionality, allowing you to save the entire FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 set-up for easy retrieval at a later stage. By creating different profiles for different aircraft and/or different flight types, you can easily restore the FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 settings that you need to perform the flight in question.
Note! Data for ControllerX is not saved with the profile. FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 keeps only one set of button assignments at the time.
You can at any time restore the defaults for FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 by simply clicking Restore Defaults in one of the option panels.
Note! All parameters will be restored, not only the parameters on the option panel on which you clicked the button!
Connecting to Flight Simulator
Once you have finished setting up FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 to your satisfaction, you are ready to connect to Flight Simulator. We suggest that you select the aircraft you intend to use and that you select your departure position (airport and gate) before establishing the connec- tion. Also, to gain full effect of FDC Live Cockpit! 2011`s cockpit functionality, you should shut down the engines.
Close the Options panel (if it is open, that is...)
Start Flight Simulator, and select the aircraft and departure location
(airport and gate). (Optional: Shut down the engines.)
