To get list of compatible missiles with manualControl = 1, use the below script and paste the clipboard results to a text editor.
private _cfgCount = count (configfile >> "CfgAmmo"); private _pasteStr = ""; for "_x" from 0 to (_cfgCount - 1) do { _cfg = (configFile >> "CfgAmmo") select _x; _ammoClassName = configName _cfg; private _manCtrl = getNumber (configFile >> "CfgAmmo" >> _ammoClassName >> "manualControl"); if (_manCtrl > 0) then { _pasteStr = _pasteStr + _ammoClassName + endl; }; }; copyToClipboard _pasteStr;

Tested with a player-controlled AH-99 firing DAGR, a civilian helicopter named heli above water/land, and the following code:
if (!isNil "EH") then { vehicle player removeEventHandler ["Fired", EH]; }; EH = vehicle player addEventHandler ["Fired", { params ["_unit", "_weapon", "_muzzle", "_mode", "_ammo", "_magazine", "_missile", "_gunner"]; _missile setMissileTargetPos getPosATL heli; // changing here getPosATL / getPosASL / getPos systemChat str [_missile, missileTarget _missile, missileTargetPos _missile]; }];
