Hello All,

I apologize if this is in the wrong section and, if so, ask that a mod move this thread to the proper section.

I purchased the X55 Rhino as well as Saitek rudder pedals and have been using them primarily for helicopter piloting in Arma3. However, I have trouble getting the long range radio (CTRL+CapsLock) and short range radio (Capslock) keys to work on the HOTAS.

When I press <Ctrl+CapsLock> on the keyboard, the "transmit" indicator comes on and stays on until I release <Ctrl+CapsLock>. That means the radio transmits my voice for as long as I hold <Ctrl+CapsLock>, as it should.

So I've tried assigning this basic command to my Throttle, specifically Switch 5 (SW5). I have tried each of the following:
1) simply entering <Ctrl+CapsLock> as keypress.
2) entering <Ctrl+CapsLock> as a macro
3) entering <Ctrl+CapsLock> as an advanced command but only in the "Press" field
4) entering <Ctrl+CapsLock> as an advanced command but only in the "Press" and the "Release" fields
5) entering <Ctrl+CapsLock> in the "Press" field and holding it while clicking in "Repeat" and "Release" fields, before finally releasing in the "Release" field.

In every one of the above cases, the ingame effect of my pushing SW5 forward is a constant stream of <Ctrl+CapsLock> presses. That means the radio will continuously switch on/off.

I wrote to Saitek/Madcatz, but unfortunately they sent me a "how to assign mouse key macro" guide that does not help me one bit.

Any ideas would be massively appreciated...Comms always become most urgent when in the final landing approach and taking my hand off the throttle to speak on the radio (via keyboard) makes things quite a bit harder.

Thanks, Tek

I hope Bohemia eventually includes a X-55 profile. It's new, I love the feel of it for a Hands on throttle stick. Thank you for posting the radio setup attempts. I've tried to work with the Saitek profiler software with similar mixed fail/results. This would be great for when flying and incorporating Task Force Arrowhead Radio. Anyone who owns an x55 can help by posting any findings or any profile setup files would be appreciated.
