Arduino Mega to FSUIPC Interface

How do I get my Arduino Mega to communicate with FSUIPC+MSFS? I want to send and receive MCP data like alt, speed course etc

Arduinos are serial port devices. The serial port device support in FSUIPC is via the Lua plug-in library, so you'd need two things:

1. An Arduino program to send the required commands and data to the serial (COM) port, and receive data for display from it.

2. A Lua program to act on serial (COM) port data received (event.com), resulting in FS events/controls being sent or offsets being written, as appropriate, and also to monitor the values for display (event.offset) and send them to the COM port.

This may sound daunting, and it is for something ambitious, but the programs involved would not be too large.

More of a problem may be the poor current state f the SimConnect interface, especially for controlling all the aspects of autopilots.
