Hi all,

I haven't found a manual anywhere yet for this new FS, but I did find a list of keyboard controls which might help if you'd like to print them out (4 pages).
I converted them to a pdf which is scalable but if anyone wants just the text file drop me a PM.

Also a guy on YouTube suggested to use an Xbox controller to control the drone, and what a revelation that is. Windows 10 recognised it instantly and it's a dream to use as it's already configured by FS.

I got the controller from Amazon, it's not a genuine one which would be quite expensive, but it's beautifully made and works great.


Hope that's some help.

Joe - Thanks for the tip on the X-Box controller.  That will be a great way for me to "play" with MSFS2020 on my personal computer separate from my sim.

Yup, I have been using the Logitech F310 wired controller, does the job, but I assign only the minimum to the controller, something I don't want to take my hands off to do the operation kind of stuff, for everything else, Keyboard and mouse!

It's my first time using an X-Box controller, I've never bought a Console, well not since the Amiga 500...
What I liked was that MSFS configured it completely as soon as I installed it. So it was just a matter of learning the controls, then it becomes quite intuitive.
Because I need to take lost of screenshots for the mag, it makes my life a lot easier. You can travel hundreds of miles away from the plane if you want to. You can also enter the Lat Long coordinates and MSFS will drop you over that location.
