    need help on how to make a Push to talk Button on Yoke

    Im Looking for a way to make a Button that i can hold in my and and push it to talk! And i guess try to set it up to be really simple. Was thinking of maybe USB if i could and have it be able to be assigned to a key stroke. Any ideas on how i could do this. Wanting to use it for when i do ATC online and also for when i fly online. I could even try to do the same thing but put it on a yoke for when i fly.... Thanks in Advance

    Hi! If I understand you correct.....

    You can assign any free button on a device to do what you wish trough the registred version of FSUIPC. Go to the Buttons tab in FSUIPC and push the button you want to use and then tick the FS functions box and from the drop down list you choose Ptt transmit for the push and Ptt stop transmit for the release.

    I'm not 100% sure of the functions name since I'm not infront of my fs pc but it's self instructive once you're there

    In that case you'll need an interface card or something similar. I seem to remember something about a cheap usb connected interface.

    But that's an unnecessary complicated, and for just one button, a very expensive way. Why invent the wheel again?

    I set up the right click button on a USB mouse to activate the push to talk function in FS9 once, would that work for you?

    You can plug multiple USB Keyboards & Mice in to a PC & they will all work.

    I think the limit is something like 16 Of them on one machine from memory.

    I have also had USB keyboards & Mice mixed in with PS/2 Keyboards & Mice, they all work together without any problems.

    Cheers Glenn
