FlightControlReplay – What’s New ?

September 22, 2023 – Summer23 Update Released, with Fly-By Camera [Beta]

Summer23 Update is FREE to all registered users of FlightControlReplay 5, and here is its content detailed below.


  • MSFS FlyBy Camera added [Beta]
  • MSFS HPG H145 Helicopter Advanced Support : lights, doors, engine switches
  • Cut and edit the replay directly in FlightControlReplay
  • File Compression technology : reduced disk space for .FCR user files

Awaited by many users of Microsoft Flight Simulator, this brand new Replay feature that was missing is LIVE. You can now watch your own aircraft evolving on ground and in the air from an external camera that follows your position automatically. It works anywhere, with any aircraft and with any add-on scenery during Replay. The User can customize the position, side, angle, distance and length of camera sequence.

During taxi operations, at takeoff or landing, or while you are cruising, fly-by camera mode will jump from a position to another along your flight trajectory to keep your aircraft always in sight with a cinematic performance ! No more hassles in setting a virtual spotter view, a button click and you are set to watch !


For a quick edit of your Replay, to remove a useless part of your Replay, you don’t need a complicated video edition software. Just cut off the part upon your selection. Do you want to forget a mistake ? Or eliminate a parking time of your Replay ?

In just 3 clicks, select when starts and ends the sequence to delete, and SAVE it !


For Users who like to record long Replays, or even complete flights, Summer23 Updates comes with a new compression technology for your *.FCR recording files. The files size is much reduced, and it’s of course without any loss of flight data or visual quality. Save more space on your disk !


The great helicopter of HyperPerformanceGroup H145 V2 for MSFS had already a partial custom support. It’s now extended to provided an Advanced Support for the best accuracy during Replay

  • NEW : lights, doors, engine switches are now also correctly reproduced
  • Since the last March23 Update :
    • Pedals, cyclic and collective
    • Tablet in 3D virtual cockpit can display FlightControlReplay integrated interface for a direct control directly from the simulator.


The customizable User Interface of FlightControlReplay 5 gets a step further. You could already select among three sizes of the layout, set it transparent, or ensure it remains always on top of other windows. Plus, the MSFS integrated interface to let you control the main features directly from your simulator without switching windows.

Now, I added another mid-size User Interface : you can cycle between a reduced version with the Menu, or a reduced version with the feature icons for a quick access still using a limited area of your screen.

March 31, 2023 – MARCH23 Update Released for FlightControlReplay 5, with MSFS and P3D5


The new March23 Update expands again the list of supported advanced airliner add-ons with the addition of both the FlyByWire Simulations freeware A32NX, and Salty 747-400 freeware Mod in MSFS.

Refined improvements for Fenix A320, also in MSFS with 100% accuracy of spoilers, flaps, and gear animations). I also added support of all FCU, lights, APU video Recording and Replay.


About aircraft integration, we start to support the popular HPG H145 helicopter, from Version 2 Build 399.

The initial support includes the reproduction of cyclic pedals, and collective control of the H145.

In the future, there will be a complete integration of FlightControlReplay V5 with HPG products for full animations support during Replay and Video recording. Note that Live Ghost is not supported yet.


This device allows players with reduced mobility to play and control their video games. By adding customized buttons and joysticks, such people can enjoy their hobby with accurate control. For example, you can manage MSFS and FlightControlReplay V5 !

If you configure Slider move Forward or Slider move Backward feature with either Xbox Adaptive Controller, or another standard joystick, and if you keep pressed the button on the device, the slider will now move fast forward or fast backward.


Based upon users feedback, I’m also happy to introduce 2 new features in FlightControlReplay V5:

1 – AUTORECORD : you can activate a new option that makes the Record to start automatically whenever you start a new flight. And the recording sessions also automatically ends when you return to the main menu of Flight Simulator.

2 – and a second handy feature is to set Pause to the recording at the same time when you set a pause in Flight Simulator. This way, you can still check something aside during the Live flight, and you always end with a smooth Recording session in the end without noticing that you had to use Pause.


I’ve been already in touch with Flylillo group to create the first virtual cockpit emulation for XBOX Adaptive Controller. The device of Microsoft will be combined with the HUB software manager Logitech G to help disabled persons for a better experience in flight simming hobby.

That’s a separate and new project, out of FCR scope, but we are trying to find money (with Microsoft and an Italian bank) to fund this inclusive project.

Microsoft officially supports this action, and recently communicated about it with one of their public post about Community Spotlight: Lillo and Roberto – Microsoft Flight Simulator

“Accessibility is one of the core values at Microsoft”, read more about it here.

December 16, 2022 – DEC22 Update Released for FlightControlReplay 5, with MSFS and P3D5

After the public release of FlightControlReplay version 5 last month, for Microsoft Flight Simulator and Prepar3D 5.x, the development priorities have been oriented towards the most demanded improvements : more aircraft add-ons supported, and improved Replay for smooth and accurate operation.


Unlike the PMDG 737 in MSFS, there were more bug reports from users flying the Airbus A320 of Fenix. This DEC2022 update should significantly enhance your experience, to ensure the best accuracy in the animated parts of your airliner during Replay. FlightControlReplay 5 supports the events of the Flaps, Gears, Ailerons, Spoliers, Reverse Thrust and Slats.


I know that many of you want to enjoy nice views of your airliner during of after the flight session. That’s why I worked to implement the advanced support of new airliners and also the introduction of the helicopters support for the first time in FlightControlReplay 5.

  • MSFS iniBuilds A310 support for ailerons, spoilers, flaps, thrust reversers, elevators and rudder
  • MSFS Just Flight Bae 146 Professional support with flaps, tail spoiler, elevators, flaps and rudder
  • MSFS Helicopter Cabri G2 full support for Cyclic Collectic Pedals Animations and most switches in cockpit
  • MSFS Helicopter Bell 407 support for Cyclic Collectic Pedals Animations


No more exception during activation. Advice : Use always MSFS on the Primary Monitor of your setup in the case that you have various monitors for the display.


New Algorithm Enhancements for Fast Forward and Slow Motion. Now the Slow Motion is very smooth !

More performance, smoother Replay. You can set a target for your FPS setting in FCR options, so you can master the Frame Per Second Configuration. FCR respects the FPS setting value to ensure smooth Replay.


Even the User Manual has been revised for a check of the visuals, and a new tutorial has been added : Replay and Record your glider with the towing airplane in MSFS, by using the Record Multi-Objects option of FlightControlReplay 5.

The management of your recorded flight files (FCR) has been revised to let you choose various settings : a custom prefix in the filename, to let FlightControlReplay 5 generate automatically the filenames upon dates and hour, and the destination folder of your files is also easier to handle when you start for the first time with FCR5.


This update is free for all registered users of FlightControlReplay 5. If you want to upgrade your older program FlightControlReplay v4.5, here are the main benefits for you :
