I own a Cirrus PFC flight control from Precision Flight control, which works fine, but I would need different switch commands in X-Plane 11. Since it is a Windows HID Device: Do you think it is possible to write a custom driver for the console without support from the manufacturer? I have programming skills in C#, but never programmed any drivers before...

Thanks, Thomas

If I were you, I will pull the interface out, and install an arduino, and re-interface it to x-plane datarefs..  no need to reinvent the wheel.

If it's a true HID device, it should be treated as a normal joystick?

To Trevor's comment, if you plan on using it with X-Plane and don't plan on going back, then gutting it is your best option.

You could interface it to a Teensy 3.2, which opens up all sorts of capabilities. You'll just need the TeensyDuino plugin from PJRC.

In fact, once programmed it will function as a typical joystick device regardless of the sim, no matter if you use PJRC or not.
