Hello Jim. First of all, I want to say a big "THANK YOU" for this amazing software. It's because people like you that make the dream to build a home cockpit come true, for those don't have much money to spend on it. I tested your software and I can extract all the information that i need except one, "the rudder trim". It is possible to include that extration in the next version of the software? Thanks a lot.

Hi Jim. There is no hurry. That extration is to use in the left side of the rudder trim button, on a airbus pedestal. I'm only making a few test before start building something. But with 3 arduinos and your software, everything becames possible, it's amazing. Thanks again Jim.

Well Jim, the more I explore this software, the more I became fan. It's like a new world to discover. The simconnect inputs are amazing. Didn't know that was possible to send commands directly to the simulator. I just didn't find a way to increase/decrease the AP Course (CRS), but the value is extractable. If is not asking for too much, can you include this too in the next version? Anyway, what you have done so far is a great, great, great software. Once again, thanks Jim.

Antonio the autopilot course input code is actually in the "multi" and it's code is A55 and A56.
It increase's or decrease's course setting.
The name I used is "old school" so maybe I'll add (course) to the listing name to avoid confusion. :)

Happy fiddling ,,, Jim

It doesn't matter if it is a old school name or not. What really matter is "IT WORKS". :D I can't imagine all the knowledge that is need to make a software like this, but one thing I know, this is a perfect interface between the hardware and the simulator. Thank you so much Jim. :D

Hello Jim. I just visited your page and I saw a new version of the software. And what was on it? The rudder trim extration :) I'm very happy not only with this extrations , but with the whole software. Since I can't spend lots of money in a home cockpit, your software will defenitily make my dream came true. It doesn't crash, sends the information correctly to the arduino and the best part, it's free. Thank you very much, for the software and for fulfill my request. Is people like you that the World need.

Hi Jim. Just want to say thanks for the fix of the rudder trim extraction on card 2 and 3. Since I'm only testing with one card, didn't notice. Thanks again for your effort to keep your software without bugs.
