Trying to hold the central joystick switch in the center while pressing and holding the switch down for the 2-5 seconds required for FAS activation can be tricky on a bumpy road.
A simple way to add a parallel momentary push button switch to do the FAS activation without disabling the MIMA central switch activation is best accomplished by adding two wires to the joystick central switch and running them to the external momentary switch.
Another place to tap into the FAS control line is on the distribution board as shown below. I recommend leaving the MIMA FAS control in place, and putting the external switch in parallel at either the joystick or on the distribution board, as future software may incorporate an option for auto FAS operation.
