I am new to Arduino and fairly new to electronics. But I am highly skilled in CNC machining and welding. I am making a full scale F-16 flight simulator and need to interface mechanical devices to the PC.
I have a few questions. 1) I want to use the Uno to sense buttons as imput and send keystrokes to a flight simulator. The first simulator I want to interface to is Falcon4 I have all of the keystroke information needed.
2) I just noticed the new mega which has many more inputs, that might be the better choice.
3) I was reading thru a article about virtual keyboard, but now I am confused. It sounds like the Uno can act like a virtual keyboard without going thru those extra steps.
4) If anyone has info on how to make the uno and the new mega sense button inputs and send keystrokes to the flight sim computer would you please provide a link or any info?
Thanks in advance
