serial port PFC yoke

Recommended Posts

Been using the beta version for FS2020 (thanks) for my serial port Precision flight controls yoke and throttle quadrant. I just want to confirm using fsuipc is the only way to make them all work together. I don't need any other functionality,  ie cockpit build with avionics, just the flight controls. Want to make sure when it's available for purchase it's the right path to take.

It is certainly the only way unless PFC have commissioned someone to produce dedicated drivers for MSFS for their now obsolete serial port range of controls, which seems extremely unlikely.

I think they did do this for X-Plane, but that was long ago when the serial port based controls were current.

All the later controls from PFC were either standard USB Joystick (Game Controller) types not requiring a special driver, or HID devices requiring either a driver they supplied, or my own PFCHid.DLL to interface to FSUIPC.
