    Phidget rotary

    I have been reading some threads about the Phidget rotary encoders that are apparently plug and play. Do they inferface with the FS2Phidget software or another program? Just wondering as these would seem to solve lots of issues for my overhead panel. Also, is there a limit as to how many could be attached to a computer say using a USB hub? Thanks in advance.

    Hello, the encoders have the USB already on them and plug right in, you will need the phidgets.msi installed and FS2Phidget to use them with MSFS. There is some calibrating and set up involved.

    To get a feel for it take a look at the FS2Phidget manual.

    A computer can have 255 USB components attached to it so you are fine there.
