yoke on one computer and FS on other


Recommended Posts

I have two computers networked and was wondering if I could control FS on second computer with a CH products yoke on first computer with FSUIPC. Is that possible ?

No, not without writing a driver to interface to WideFS. I wouldn't really advise that in any case unless you really want some latency in the control (caused by the delay in transmitting across a network). When flying (or driving or anything like that really) you are reacting to visual feedback far faster than you would think, and even an extra 20 mSecs (about the best you could hope for on a Network on average) would tend to lead to you overcontrolling. It would be akin to trying to control an aircraft with a frame rate of less than 10 fps.

Better just to get an extension lead if you want the yoke further away. ;-)
