Pro Flight Trainer Puma visual config coming to X-Plane, shows toe brakes mod

One of the cool features that X-Plane 11 brought was the ability to visualize some of our hardware in order to configure it easier. A future X-Plane update will bring native visual support for the Pro Flight Trainer Puma, which is a much welcome addition. And it shows a surprise feature: toe brakes.

This visual configuration is a much welcome addition as it allows the Pro Flight Trainer Puma users to configure their kit easier. Especially since the Puma has a switch that triples the amount of buttons (and the hat switch).

With this new feature, you'll be able to configure the standard axis (cyclic, collective, throttle and pedals), the grip and throttle buttons for all the switch positions (x3) and the grip hat switch for all switch positions as well.

The visual configuration tool allows for an easier configuration of your controls as you can see which buttons/axis you are setting up instead of trying to guess.

A surprise: toe brakes

If you look at the menu above (and the first image below), you will notice a surprise, though: a toe brake modification. Although this is not an official announcement from the company, we do need to remember this is an official feature, being worked by Pro Flight Trainer.

Looks like we'll see a toa brake modification sometime soon!
