Software for G-Throttle
Hi all. I am very excited about the g-throttle because it looks very good for the price and will be respected in the sim pit even though it is not a full replica. It is kind of 'middle' ground negotiation between the highly expensive opencockpits £2000 version and the lame plastic toys that are available for £100.
Anyway to the point....
Last year i attempted to build a quadrant myself but gave up after getting a £500 bill just for having the knobs crafted But before creating the hardware i went ahead and solved a few software issues that were apparent with FSUIPC interfacing with a throttle. Below is the attachment showing the software at work. It does these things.....
1. Gets data from FSUIPC
2. Gets button/pot data from throttle unit (HID)
3. Monitors throttle position to stop reverse thrust being applied unless throttle position is 0
4. Stops throttle position data being sent to FSUIPC if Auto-throttle is engaged
5. Generally passes all data from the throttle unit to FSUIPC in a nice orderly fasion
The question is, does the G-throttle connect as a HID device? If it does then I cant wait to use it with my software!

It connects to FS as a Joystick Controller basically! ANd can be totally worked through FSUIPC or FS! I do reccomend however FSUIPC!
