Good morning all,
Have been experimenting and flying X-Plane from the old no 6 version and still loving it. I have installed V 11 a few weeks ago and am now stuck in a corner.
I use a ELA gyroplane model which I downloaded. Comments on the forum indicates that it is working fine in X-Plane 11. I can fly it with conventional commercial control joystick.
I have an Arduino board with 4x axis (analogue inputs) and 7x digital (switch) inputs.
I use SimVim plugin to run Arduino.
I can use the custom controls through Arduino to control the Pitch, roll, rudder and throttle.
I can use 1x of the digital inputs (brakes On/Off) but the rest like Master on/off or Mags on/off or Pre-rotate does not work. I have configured them in the SimVim "configurator".
I looked at the ELA model in Plane maker under 2D panel. I can see 1 or 2 of the switches I want the Arduino to handle, but switches like Master and Mags does not show in 2D panel?
In the main X-Plane program there is no longer a screen where all the buttons appear (compared to X-Plane 10).
How can I get X-Plane 11 to read my custom buttons and switches from Arduino (through SimVim plugin)?
I imagine I need to figure out what the ELA model uses and then define them in SimVim, but how and where do I get that info?
Some help will be much appreciated.
