Fixing F18 Right Panel with DCS LTD/R change

Ok so DCS have updated the F18 Hornet Module to remove the Aft switch position from LTD/R which causes issues with my F18 Right Panel.

The first fix for those who use DCS V0.10 is to remove the Module-F-18 Module from Plugins.

Then in remote URL up the top enter and hit install.

Now this recitifies “most” of the problem. Now we have a 3way switch in the unit with a 2 way switch in game, by default now SAFE is Arm and Aft is Safe. Ok wierd right 🙂

The only way to fix this is to reflash the firmware, the File to download is below

Once you have downloaded this, see the below instructions on how to reflash your unit with this new hardware.

Now if after doing this you have any wierd issues like Bleed air rotating in wrong direction please contact me and let me know as you may have one of my earlier units where this was inverted.

How to Reflash Firmware

You are here because you are needing to reflash your TekCreations Unit with new Firmware.

The Firmware will be provided to you as needed, you just need to follow the below instructions.

Firstly only have the unit in question plugged in via USB and no other TekCreations Device.
You will have been giving direction to a download which Contains the tool Xloader and the firwmare you need.

Extract that download to a folder somewhere, then Open  up xloader.exe and browse and there is a hex file, firmware.hex open that up with the device plugged in.

Choose Leonardo(32u4)

Now the tricky bits your com ports are probably different to mine. Copy the 57600 to clipboard as you need to be quick.

Choose the com port of the device, and type in 1200 into baud rate,

Click upload (this resets the arduino)

Now quickly choose com port and there will be another one (in my case com7 paste the 57600 into baud rate adn hit upload again.

That will flash this firmware, let me know how it goes.

Video below showing how its done.

Any issues please contact me
