The DIY Helicopter Keyboard Modification is great for flight sim pilots that use training helicopters like the default Robinson R22 in Microsoft Flight Simulator X (also FSX Steam and Prepar3D P3D). Build this Flight Sim Helicopter Keyboard Mod from an inexpensive keyboard in a single day. The video and instruction manual show you every step of this easy DIY project. You can get started now because I have found that students that take real world flight training like to practice their procedures at home with their flight simulator and this project can help.
DROP YOUR MOUSE
The button layout and the keyboard event assignments make it possible to do several important functions almost completely without using the mouse:
Combine the keyboard mod with your computer and flight simulator controls and take off on some challenging virtual missions or relaxing sight-seeing.
