Simkits Flap gauge
« on: January 30, 2018, 02:56:58 PM »
I have purchased an old Simkits flap gauge. The gauge is setup, I can calibrate it. I run the TRC Link v3 and it says it is connected to P3D but when my flaps move it does not. What am I missing. This is obviously user error...

Hi Bob,
I don't think you use the TRC software. If i recall correctly, the one you want is called Simkits.
I'm not at home right now so I can't tell you for sure.

Is anyone using this gauge with P3D v4? I still have not heard from Simkits....

Sander from TRC was positive about using it with V4 64bits with that driver

Yup, and I included that email with my question to them. But as of now, I have still not heard anything from them.

Hi Bob,

Back home now. I remember it taking me awhile to figure out which drivers to use as the documentation for these gauges is poor.

The exe file that I use is USBFSUIPCLink.exe
There is also USBFSXLink.exe in the directory which I'm assuming uses Sim Connect.

I'm still using FSX though, not P3D.

I believe they are in the same folder that the calibration exe is in.
