    Question Hello all and ..... PLEASE HELP MEEE!!!

    Good Evening from the UK everyone,

    I'm currently building a GA cockpit built loosley around a Piper PA-28 to aid me with my flying lessons.
    I have all the switches ect I need set up through my first arduino card, I am struggling getting/writing the code for what i want to do next.

    I am trying to write code for my 2nd card (UNO) that has key inputs on all pins except 3 that will be my warning lights for start engaged, alt failure ect. I cannot seem to combine the codes correctly to get it working and its driving me slightly mad!! okay its driving me nuts!!!!

    I am also trying to set the 3rd card up to receive potentiometers from my throttle, flap lever (may have figured out a way to do this with FSIPU and a rotary switch) and im still trying to figure out how to do a trim wheel!

    If anyone can help with this coding I would be massively appreciative! I am trying to learn this myself however I could do with getting the basics (flaps and warning lights ect) set up ASAP

    Many Many thanks in advance

    Jonjoe

    Perhaps there's not as many people on here as I hoped, ive managed to make a flap lever out of some pvc tube and a rotary switch, trim wheel im going to make using a 2 micro switches although this obviously isnt true to use.

    Hurray! One more bugsmasher.

    You can only way to get realistic trim is to move the anchor points for the flight yoke tension springs and leave the flight sim trim alone. This is one project that I am putting off along as I can. Big pieces of aluminium, stepping motors, toothed belts and cold evenings in the garage making chips.

    Please post or pm your code for the second card.

    If you nead help, ask the right questions
    If you post what you have of code, and at the same time tell us what you nead help with, I think probably many people at the forum are willing to help! With a loose questions about assistance, however, it is difficult to know what to do for you.
