FSUIPC and stepper motor...

Recommended Posts

Hello,
I would like to read the X and Y values of a joystick (FSX under Win7) to transmit them via USB to an ARDUINO. (stepper motor controller).
Can FSUIPC do this work?
Thank you.

It can help you do it. To transmit to the Arduino would require a Lua plug-in which you'd need to write. The joystick would then be assigned to send the axis values to this plug-in. The plug-in should be preloaded and set to wait for axis values as events. The events would be changes in the main Parameter which is sent by assignment in FSUIPC axis assignments to the LuaValue control.

You'd need a registered (i.e. paid for) FSUIPC. Take a look at the documentation, expecially for the Lua features and the examples provided. We can help in more detail when you'd done so.

Pete
