Now available in Stream Deck store!

We have started a discussion thread in GitHub to share pre-built profiles https://github.com/nguyenquyhy/Flight-Tracker-StreamDeck/discussions/128. Everyone is welcome to post their creation!

This is a plugin for Elgato Stream Deck that provides you with buttons to interface with Microsoft Flight Simulator via SimConnect. There are some preset buttons allowing you to simply drag & drop and choose the required function. There are also generic buttons and gauges allowing you to access a wide selection of SimConnect variables and events.

The buttons from this plugin have several benefits comparing to buttons with key bindings:

  • The buttons do not emulate keypress, so you don’t have to worry about matching keyboard binding in-game. You don’t have to worry about other software happen to mistakenly take those keys in either.
  • The buttons interact with the sim directly via SimConnect, so the sim does not have to be in focus. You can be reading chart (or any other software), and all buttons will still works.
  • It can show a lot of information from the sim.
  • The buttons can perform some more “advanced” interactions than normal Stream Deck buttons. For examples.
    • Holding COM/NAV button shows you a numpad to enter frequency (not available on Stream Deck Mini due to limited buttons).
    • Holding HDG button sync current heading.
    • Tapping +/- button increase/decrease 1 unit while holding does so at 10 units.
Installation from Stream Deck store (with auto update)
  1. Click More Actions button in the bottom right corner of Stream Deck software
  2. Search for Flight Tracker & click Install
  3. Accept the prompt to install the plugin and the profiles. The profile is a special numpad, allowing you to enter COM/NAV frequency and transponder code.

Manual Installation
  1. Download latest version and unzip
  2. Double click the file tech.flighttracker.streamdeck.streamDeckPlugin to install
    • If you manually created the folder tech.flighttracker.streamdeck.sdPlugin previously in %appdata%\Elgato\StreamDeck\Plugins, you will see an error saying "This custom action is already installed." In this case you will need to manually remove that folder before trying again.
  3. Accept the prompt to install the plugin and the profiles. The profile is a special numpad, allowing you to enter COM/NAV frequency and transponder code.

I'm looking for the Win10 path for the profiles folder. I would like to copy my profile to another computer. Sorry if this has been asked before. Thanks.

Is it possible to display the percentage of Propeller RPM and Mixture?

I am lost and I do not know if I am doing something wrong or maybe it is not possible.

I would be very grateful for your reply

I dreamed of it, you made it!

Great plugin 😊 but is there any way we can set simulation data variables in addition to sending simulation events ? You allow us to read and display simulation data but don't seem to be able to set simulation data, only send events

Can someone walk me through how to add Lnav and Vnav for the 747/787?

Definitely one of the best Flight Simulator mod ever! The possibilities are endless
Any reason why the display sometimes gets corrupt and you have icons superimposed on each other and strange graphics in the display ?

Ending Stream Deck from taskmanager and restarting seems to fix it until it happens again.
great! thanks 😉
Thanks for that great tool!!
But how can I update it in the Stream Deck Software? My Version ist 0.29 and there is no update button? Only deinstallation and install profile (what I have already done).

Udated now manually and it works 😊
Using the latest build of FT for Streamdeck on Windows 10 20H2, i get a message ''this custom action can't be installed on this operating system'' , any idear's?
Hi, thanks for your continued updates. I installed this manually long ago, what's the best way to see which version I have installed? If I update, will I have to remake my profiles? Thanks.
Thanks for this Addon!!!
I just installed the profile into STream deck (downloading within Streamdeck), but now I can not change anything in this profile. Why is this?
What was the status of having two or 3 values displayed on the one button or two different actions on the same button. I was wanting to have all the warning lights on one button. Stall , Overspeed, Caution.
Thanks again for this app.
When will you give it a connection with your Flight Recorder ?
First of all a very big thank you.
How can I assign lights? (Beacon/Strobe/etc.)?
Is it possible to upload a profile? That we can import it ?

Hi - Sorry it's me again! I have been spending a lot of time recently setting up a default aircraft profile (the Beechcraft Baron G58) with Flight Tacker so that I can then replicate it of all the simpler aircraft by deleting buttons as appropriate (I was intending to pop these on the site for others, but I just can't get it finished!

Overall it has been going quite well, and most of it is now done. I do have a few odd Simconnect issues that have me stumped - which I may ask about some time - but my biggest problem by far is with the G1000 Audio Panel. I had no issues setting up the PFD and MFD (including the the soft key menus, knobs and joysticks), being able to use all of the Mobiflight commands to get pretty much everything fully operational. The Audio Panel however is a different story. Not one of the buttons will work. There are no Mobiflight threads about any issues (and all of the toggle values are in the Mobiflight file in my Community folder - because I checked. Also, when I checked MSFS 2020 for the operations of the keys in question (in developer mode), all of the variables seemed correct too.

I can't really see why it would be a Flight Tracker issue, but I can't think what else the problem could be. Have you heard from anyone else with any issues? Do you have any ideas?


Does anyone know how to create buttons for the logo lights, taxi light, runway lights, and other lighting? I assume you have to use generic toggle button but how do I fill in the toggle event boxes and such?
Nguyenquyhy Great work 😊

I have made 2 Generic Toggle Button's for the engine start on the A320 with the 'TOGGLE_FUEL_VALVE_ENG1' and 'TOGGLE_FUEL_VALVE_ENG2' but can't find the feedback value for that, so i can se on the stream deck that it is on, and that the images changes.
I know i can hear the engine spin up, but it could be nice to se it as on, on the stream deck!

I have tried the 'GENERAL_ENG_FUEL_VALVE__1' but that dont work 😞
Do I have to do anything to update this through Stream Deck store?
Hãnh diện ghê.
