    - can i make an instrument with a motor connected to a digital output (to move the indicator of the instrument)

    We don't offer this capability with the software since the software is completly written for MSFS.

    Someone who knows how to write code could write a small program for you to do this. It wouldn't be very difficult. Ask around to find a developer who would want to help you out on this. It would be a cool project.

    Servo's are your best bet for doing this. we have only experimented with regular servo's that have a swing of 180 degrees. So if your intrument has 180 or less degrees you can use our servo controller. Trying to drive with other motors isn't recommended since you won't know where the needle is at any point to determine how to drive the motor and for how long. Servo's are good because you can tell them exactly where to go.

    Functions

    HI,

    With regard to functionality that Fs2Phidget supports...
    Short answer - whatever FSUIPC supports.


    Refer to the FSUIPC documentation for a full list of the Functions he supports in FSUIPC
    http://www.schiratti.com/dowson.html

    I'll look into posting these on our site.

    Thanks

    France

    Hi,

    We are currently working on setting up our France distributor. But it will be 3-4 weeks before they are ready to go. you will have to decide if you would rather wait for them or order from us.

    Sure thing :)

    Yes,

    This is a sure thing. www.lextronic.fr

    You should tell me what you plan to order though so I can make sure they stock it for you in their first order which we are working on.

    If you order from us right now using UPS the shipping would be $50-65 dollars USA and you would have to pay any taxes France levies on your order.

    We will have a new shopping cart by next week and will offer USPS which would ship for probably $15, but that order would take 2 weeks to get there.

    It's up to you.

    Matt
