Default 12 FG Solution

After accidently truning on my transmitter and plane with the retract switch in the up position and making me a bit angry I found a solution. Even though there is no warning for the retract switch in the up position there is a snap roll warning. I just programed the snap roll switch to the retract switch and nulled out all of the throws so the transmiiter won't broadcast when the retract switch is in the up position. Seems to work fine on the ground.

Good idea....

You could accomplish the same thing by setting up a condition based on the retract switch up position. Then, if you accidently turn on your radio with the retract switch in the up position, the radio won't transmit until you reset the retract switch. Both accomplish the same thing.
