About Map Connect 🎉

Map Connect is an app for Infinite Flight users use joystick and keyboard to fly. This app is made by Map-Flight Studio. @AirChina196 has noticed that LiveFlight Connect is no longer officially supported as of 26th February 2020 so he thought we can make a app instead of LiveFlight Connect. Sorry Cam lol

  2. You can only use Park Breaks,

Changes at 1.0.0 Alpha 1

  1. Removed the brake operation

I expect the Map Connect Alpha version will be available for download tomorrow or the day after tomorrow, and the source code will also be available at that time :)

🤩 WOW… That’s great, please give us future add-ons for expanding it the Airbus throttle Quadrant as well.
I simple words I would say IF is a mini msf2020 on a Lower budget Scale.👍👌

Wow.

As a joystick user myself, I’m highly looking forward to trying this out!

I’m also a major fan of the black background - keeps the room darker when flying at night, thus making it easier to see the iPad screen - one of the issues I face a fair bit with LFC.

Lovely to see somebody ‘picking up’ this project from Cam and making it in their own way for the benefit of the community.

As a Live Flight Connect user, I am genuinely excited to see someone picking up the Connect project, and creating a faster, sleeker, and overall better Joystick Port! I have ridiculed Connect for being painstakingly slow and just dropping connection on short final; I hope that Map Connect will bring an end to most of those problems; I hope by solving this Map Connect makes a huge wave in the community!

P.S. I wish I could test it in the future

I wish you great luck in your venture!
