    Noobie Switch Question

    Hey all! I'm trying to make some panels for the engine controls of the Turbine Duke, and there are several 3 position switches in this cockpit. I would like to use the Leo Bodnar interface cards for my setup. Is there a way to set up a 3 position switch with these cards?

    I have seen On-Off-On switches, but my concern is that when I move the switch into the Off position, the sim will not recognize the command. I have also seen On-On-On switches, but have read on this site that they are incredibly difficult to wire, and not recommended.

    Any advice on how to best get these swiches going would be much appreciated.

    For a 3 position center off I would wire your two on positions to two consecutive inputs on the bodnar card and use FSUIPC4 to read them where you can assign a command to both the on and off action of each switch.

    I appreciate the response. It makes sense that would work, but having never done it, I wasn't sure if FSUIPC would recognize the Off position of the switch as a command.
