  1. I’m excited to announce the release of version 1.6.1 of MSFS Mobile Companion App which adds a dedicated control profiles for the CRJ-550/700. You can now control: the FCP the Side Panel (including HUD) NAV and ADF frequencies COM and XPNDR frequencies for free on your mobile device, laptop or PC. MSFS Mobile Companion App is a tool that allows you to control essential aircraft instruments such as NAV/COM frequencies, autopilot or lights using almost any device. A few notes on the MCDU and overhead panel controls: I am aware that both the MCDU and the overhead panel would make a great addition to the app. However, due to current technical (and time-related) limitations, I’m unable to make a useful implementation of these controls. It’s possible to simulate all the buttons, however, I can’t get the MCDU display or the state of the overhead switches into the app yet. Having just the buttons would bring minimal added value. These features will be implemented as soon as I, the community or developers find an easy way to bring the MCDU display and the state of overhead switches into the app. Where can I get the app? You can download the MSFS Mobile Companion App for free on GitHub or flightsim.to. It’s free. No ads, no in-app purchases, nothing. Important notice for existing users: Don’t forget to copy the mobiflight-event-module folder into the Community folder. Important notice for new users: Don’t install the app on your mobile device! Download and run it on your PC. This creates a local web server to which you connect via an IP address. You can connect to the app from your Android, iOS, Windows or Linux devices. To find out more about this app, visit the GitHub project page . Enjoy the app and please let me know your feedback!
  2. The FCU stands for Flight Control Unit. It's the panel with autopilot controls in the middle of the cockpit.
  3. Thanks for the links! I'm using Mobiflight's WASM Lvar module to access Lvars which works great and is easy to use. The problem with NAV frequencies is that there isn't a direct Lvar for tuning and standard SimConnect events don't work (COMs work fine though). There are Lvars for the radio panel buttons and the knob, but there doesn't seem to be a specific Lvar that shows which button is active. And that's the biggest issue. I think I can get around it by using dummy Lvars, but I only want to do it this way if nothing else works. I'll do some more testing and see if I can come up with something better.
  4. Thanks for the tip @HighFlyer51! That's what I'm planning to do, plus the FCU and lights of course. I've already started working on it. The biggest issue so far seems to be with NAV controls, but I'll find a way to have them in the app.
  5. Thanks for the tip! Unfortunately, I somehow can't edit the first post. Anyway, if you think I've missed some buttons/switches then please let me know.
  6. I'd love to do a full CDU like the aviaCDU, but for now, as a an open-source past-time project, I'm working on switches and buttons only without simulating displays (except for NAV/COM tuning obviously).
  7. Hello CRJ pilots! I'm currently working on implementing the CRJ controls for the open-source MSFS Mobile Companion App and I would like to hear your thoughts on which CRJ controls/switches/buttons you would like to see in the app. My plan is to have the following panels in the app: FCU Panel left of the PFD NAV frequency tuning COM frequency tuning Lights, anti/de-ice switches and toggle HUD The goal is to have controls which are essential during the flight so that you don't have to move the cockpit camera to activate the switch with your mouse. I'm not planning on doing switches that you activate during start-up, taxiing or shut-down. I also won't be implementing the MCDU buttons because it would only make sense if I could simulate the full MCDU display as well - buttons alone don't make that much sense from the cost/benefit point of view. Once I know how to have the display in the app as well, I'll make the full MCDU. Please let me know if I missed some essential controls that would be beneficial to have on a mobile device. Thanks a lot! Martin Mod Edit: Emphasized project target at Martin's request
