Control Surface Manipulation


Recommended Posts

Here is my situation.

The primary source of control input is from PFC flight controls. I would like to be able to manipulate the aileron and elevator control surfaces using program control. I don't want to, or need to, interact with the PFC flight controls (or any other joystick) during this manipulation period. However, I want to be able to spcifiy the deflection of the aileron and elevator and have the plane appropriately respond in MSFS.

In other words, providng a defelection of +X to the aileron causes the plane to roll to the right and a deflection of -X causes the plane to roll to the left. The ratio of X to the roll angle is not important as long as it is consistant.

Is this possible?

Thanks

Yes, of course. You'd need to disconnect the PFC axes from FS whilst you need control, using the programming facilities for this described near the back of the PFC.DLL documentation, then control the elevator and aileron directly via the appropriate FSUIPC offsets. You need the FSUIPC SDK, available from http://www.schiratti.com/dowson.

Pete,

I can't seem to find the appropriate offsets for the aileron and elevator control. Can you please provide them for me.

Thanks

Where they've been since FS98: 0BB6 and 0BB2.

Please use the search facility in your word processor. A search on Elevator and Aileron would have found them very quickly.

Pete
