    Spitfire turn and slip data extraction

    Hi
    Does anyone now which data to extract in link2FS for turn and slip indicator (Spitfire)? There is turn-coordination ball option but how about the slip?
    Thanks for help

    Turn coordination ball indicates the slip.
    I dont currently know the output values but if you observe it while flying and kick in the rudder you can see the output numbers.

    Re: Spitfire turn and slip data extraction

    Tried and failed to do some quick research on what the Turn numbers at the bottom of the gauge mean.
    I don't know if they correlate with degrees of bank 10, 20, 30, 40 or if they are indicators of rate of turn 1,2,3, or 4 degrees per second.

    Here's some 300 level knowledge...
    If you know about FSUIPC and offsets you may be able to read them from the Experts section in Link2FS.

    The offsets for the info you want

    0380 32-bit floating point turn coordinator ball position, –1.0 to +1.0
    0384 32-bit floating point turn rate, degrees per second(–3.0 to +3.0 is equivalent to the 2 mins left/right range)

    Your mileage may vary dipping into the Experts section in Link2FS.
    Personally, I cut out Link2FS all together and use LUA thru FSUIPC to interface with my Arduinos.
    But that is not an easy road to start on. Learn what you can with Link2fs there is valuable experience to be gained.
    When Link2FS can't give you what you want then consider moving to LUA scripting.
