New Builder!! Arduino and simconnect
« on: February 24, 2017, 01:22:38 PM »
Hello everyone,
I am currently working on a generic cockpit, mainly focusing on the electronic  part.
I would like to work just with Arduino or other cheap microcontrollers, without using expensive input cards.

At the moment I am trying to implement some generic inputs and I am planning to start developing generic gauges soon (I am in favour of old style gauge wrt modern screens)

For the sw I use FSX.
At the moment I am implementing an interface with simconnect but I am not yet sure this is the way to go over FSUIPC.

Anyway thank you for hosting me and I am looking forward to a great collaboration.

Of course any suggestion is welcome

Hi Andy,

Welcome to the group.

I am using FSUIPC (LUA Script) To communicate with my Arduino....  Works for me..

Nice to have you here.

Thank you! I will definitely contact him, although I was looking more towards development suggestions rather than pre-made some software packages as I quite enjoy coding Arduino

New Builder!! Arduino and simconnect
« Reply #7 on: February 24, 2017, 02:58:55 PM »
I have heard a lot about FSUIPC, even used it for some basic interface, but I sort of have the idea that simconnect, as is provided by Microsoft, should work better / allow to do more stuff.
It's like I am a bit afraid that I do all the work with FSUIPC just to realize when I am well under way that I need some advance features nor supported by FSUIPC.
It's just a thought though

Lol FSUIPC has been around many more years then Simconnect.  But I will let you ponder that. FSUIPC talks directly to simconnect. Either way, I doubt you will be able to get very far with a simulator without requiring FSUIPC at some point.


But take it from someone with experience. FSUIPC is better and more versatile then dealing directly with simconnect.
