Iíve got a question in regards to sending data to and receiving data from FSX.

Iím about to embark on a new cockpit build where Iíll have panels and instruments which both need data from FSX and will send data to FSX. A radio panel is a good example. This will be managed through some sort of USB controller although Iím not decided on exactly what yet.

My research suggests people seem to do this in multiple ways but I was wondering if there was any general consensus on the best way?

Iíve done a bit of software development and Iím not frightened to get my hands dirty in that respect but I certainly donít want to hack into the code directly either.

Any info / input would be appreciated.
