How to setup the VirtualFly SWITCHO Lights modules with MSFS VirtualFly offers a series of SWITCHO modules to interface with MSFS, P3D and Xplane. These are simple switch modules allowing to operate the most common switches in the cockpit. NOTE : These modules are currently only interfacable with the VFHub software freely provided by VirtualFly. They are only compatible with default aircraft. Addons may not or only partially be supported. There will be in the near future a firmware flash capability allowing the modules to be recognized as standard HID and subsequently be freely assignable from within the Controls options of the simulator or through 3rd-party utility such as Axis&Ohs or SpadNext. Stay tuned ! These modules are available here These modules come with the VFHub driver that is already configured for the default aircraft. There is therefore little to do beside installing the software. However, there is some assignment capability within the scope of the standard functions of the default aircraft. These modules can be used as table top device with their own housing : Please login to display this image. Or they can be mounted in an instrument panel.
