    Smile Newbie: Multi Purpose MCP FSX Arduino Mega Project

    Hi
    I have been building a MCP interface for the iFly 737 and FSX GA aircraft. I found Link2FS from Jimspage Link: htp//www.jimspa.co.nz/into.htm and his radio stack and various other information. So I started to build various layouts and after several attempts to produce a front panel I managed to produce the attached image.
    I use two Arduino Mega 256, one for the radio and some switches and the second for Auto pilot and various functions , actual altitude, Flaps indicator, actual airspeed and several switches. What I would like to do is use the codes from simconnect direct to fsx so I can select more codes to access fsx direct without Jims program. Has anyone done this with the Arduino?

    Hello,
    forget simconnect, use LUA which can access FSUIPC offsets (see FSUIPC documents pdf in your FSX/Modules) and use LUA com library to talk to arduino. Get inspired here: https://code.google.com/p/arduino-fs/

    With what material did you make the panel?
