Flight simulator hardware maps for Logitech, CH Products, Redbird

If you're upgrading your flight simulator controls to take advantage of the new Microsoft Flight Simulator, you'll first need to configure a few things in the Options menu (click on Controls). This requires selecting which control inputs creates which effects, and assigning important functions to some buttons—often called a hardware map. This article explains how to get off to a fast start with the popular hardware options, including Logitech, CH Products, and Redbird.

Some controls (like the Logitech G series) are instantly recognized by Microsoft Flight Simulator. Some others require manual setup. The first thing you'll want to do is assign different buttons and levers to different controls. For example, to let the software know that turning the CH Products Yoke left should control the ailerons, set Left Axis X to roll. See below for complete hardware maps.
