    MiG-21 Bis + ARIES

    I'm using Yo-Yo's T.A.R.G.E.T .fcf script for the -21 and it only has a radio menu toggle (TMS R SHORT). I'd like to set things up so I can use ARIES in the MiG, with the preferred key combination being Mic Switch FWD for comms and Mic Switch UP for the show/hide ARIES radio GUI.

    Anyone know how, or if this is even possible?

    TIA!

    Then just map your buttons the normal way.

    As a rule, I don't get on with T.A.R.G.E.T

    Thanks, Howie. I'd had a look at that but to be honest I didn't understand it all that well. What buttons is he talking about? Also, the Yo-Yo script creates custom commands for my Cougar MFDs and that I don't want to lose as they are super-convenient.

    The 'alternate' binds on that list just allow you to map 2 and 3 position switches easily with the warthog using that file.

    It replaces your default controller mapping with a version with extra commands. I have the 3 position flaps mapped to my 3 position flaps and the landing gear UP/NEUTRAL/DOWN mapped to one of my IGN/NORM/MOTOR switches.

    OK, I figured out T.A.R.G.E.T's GUI editing system (a bit arcane in some ways, quite easy in others). Now I need just one thing: how to get the ARIES UHF radio transmit command into it. I can't just press MIC Switch Down as that doesn't create any kind of response in T.A.R.G.E.T. It allows for insertion of DX switches but that doesn't seem to work (I've tried both "4" and "5").

    DCS is no help as there's no (not that I can find, anyway) description of a radio transmit key beyond the menu switch and some canned commands.

    Any takers?

    Use any key command you like. Just setup Aries to use the given command as well. Or I am missing what you're getting at?

    I think I get it now! Thank you very much, Eddie.

    -edit-

    Yep, all good! Even set up some "enhancements" to Yo Yo's effort to better suit my needs.

    Thanks to all for your support!
