i saw this topic on the archived forums and noticed that someone nearly hit the nail on the head but then people drifted from the point

Re: Interfacing with Flight simulator X
Reply #5 - 11.02.2010 at 21:56:41   Hello,

the fastests and simplest way is to use fsuipc (just google for it).
It's a library which interfaces to FSX in order to read and write nearly every value from airplane and environment: autopilot, heading, speed, etc etc etc...

I was thinking about doing some stuff on this way, and it looks to be really easy.

The hardest way is to think what do you want: a simple heading/speed/autopilot/lights module ? Or a full A380 cabine ?

Using fsuipc is very easy: just read any value you want and send it to arduino via serial interface (may be you use 7 segment or LCD), or read any button/switch change and send to FSX.

I hope this information help you!


more importantly
Using fsuipc is very easy: just read any value you want and send it to arduino via serial interface (may be you use 7 segment or LCD), or read any button/switch change and send to FSX.

thats what ive been trying to work out myself, how to set up the serial interface. i understand fsuipc offsets but i dont know how to communicate them to the arduino

thanks guys

Hi Jamie,

Feels weird to be replying 4 years later but I am really curious, did you figure it out? Perhaps have a link to help me figure it out?  :D

Thanks

Hi Snakekiller,
take a look on www.mobiflight.de
MobiFlight is an interface software for hardware connecting to FSUIPC via Arduino Mega. Works great!

Regards,
Chris
