FlightControlReplay Now Compatible with Microsoft Flight Simulator

FlightControlReplay has been updated to version 4.5, which now makes it compatible with Microsoft Flight Simulator. The utility enables users to record and replay their flights within the simulator.

The tool was previously available for Prepar3D and FSX users, but the free update adds full compatibility with the new simulator.

In addition to the ability to use the product within Microsoft Flight Simulator, other new features include the option to change the rendering mode to MP4, adjust the camera recording, restoring your plane in the last known position and adjusting the video rendering speed from x1/4 to x4. The new update also adds integration with Microsoft “Surface Dial” and also FlightIllusion GSA-42.

There are some limitations that are made clear when you purchase. Right now, some functionality such as zooming in/out is not functional, nor are some simulator variables. Furthermore, you will need to turn off plane crash detection, and shortcut keys are limited to one key at a time. The full list is detailed on the simMarket page and also down below.

You can buy FlightControlReplay from simMarket for €15.00. If you previously owned the product, you can get the update from your account now.
