I noticed on the keycard in FB about 75% of the keys are "user defined" has anyone come up with a good layout/keycard to use ?

The best way is to do it yourself. Everyone has a different interpretation of what is intuitive, chances are you are not going to be comfortable with a keymap that someone else has done. It isn't really that hard, just go through each section and determine which controls you need; anything else you can leave alone.

For example, I like to assign the letter keys to things that start with the same letter; i.e. propellor controls to the P key (use Shift, Ctrl, and Alt for more functions), the F key to flaps, G for gear, M for map, et cetera.

This might help. They are keyboard layouts for IL2, but the changes in FB are very minor, if any. It helped me to map my personal keys and buttons. Your joystick buttons will probably replace several keystrokes. I put my trigger button 1 to fire both weapon 1+weapon2, for example, and move my weapon 1 (guns) to joybutton 2. That way I can spray at distance and have max gun power up close.
I got these long ago and don't recall where. Thank you to whomever made it.
