    Is the PhidgetMotorControl LV board supported by fs2phidgets?

    I am incorporating motor support into 4.0 as I type this.
    I am shooting to release 4.0 in about two weeks from now.

    I have made changes to code for PhidgetMotorLV
    and in preperation for PhidgetStepper.

    As soon as my PhidgetMotor crd arrives
    I will test and make 4.0 available as a pre-release.
    i.e. will support latest 3.x and 4.0

    Target date of two weeks looks achievable.

    For autothrottles you are better of using servos.

    You will have to do a bit of work to position a DC motor accurately.
