I'm trying to implement RPOS udp request.

No problem to subscribe, but I don't understand the answer from x-plane. Please see attached.

I took a look to "Exchanging Data with X-Plane.rtfd". We can read :

the four chars RPOS and a NULL.
double dat_lon        longitude of the aircraft in X-Plane of course, in degrees
double dat_lat        latitude
double dat_ele        elevation above sea level in meters
float y_agl_mtr        elevation above the terrain in meters

First, As you can see I don't get a NULL after "R P O S"...

Then, longitude bytes seem to be very strange...

Could a Laminar Research Team member could explain me more ?

Thanks !
