Set trim via joystick buttongs using Advanced Fly-By Wire mod

// unfortunately this doesn't work great. Trim setting is not shown by moving the flight tabs

KSAMissionCtrl / LocalCtrl.ks
Created May 4, 2016
A way to control probes in real-time when dealing with RT2 signal delay. Mainly for pointing cameras
View LocalCtrl.ks
// REQUIRED: ActionGroupsExtended mod, which allows action group bindings to circumvent RT2 signal delay
// Can change action groups to whatever works for you, I use AGX to assign them to Numpad keys
set running to true.
set locked to true.
// exit the program
on AG8 { set running to false. }.
// kill rotation
You can’t perform that action at this time.
