Hi and thanks for this great simulation software.
I'm using it in my home Cessna 172 simulator, and it works fantastic.
I've successfully send data from gauges to AirManager in order to have virtual gauges in the cockpit (using the [sender] objects in .tdm file + AirManager.dll).
Now i'm working on force feedback yoke:
i've already build it, and the pitch&roll data captured by potentiometers are sent by an arduino (recognized as a HID usb joystic) to Aerofly thus i can successfully fly the aircrat.
Now the tricky part: the force feedback.
I'd like to ask to Developers if there is a way to extract data regarding the physics of the airplane that are real time calculated by the simulation engine (forces, momentum, accelerations...), because i need them in order to drive the actuators.
I read in the .tdm wiki page (https://www.aerofly.com/dokuwiki/doku.php/aircraft:tmd), but unfortunatly found nothing regarding "Autopilot and Flight Management". I was hoping to find there informations about how to extract those real time data.
Lastly, regarding stock c172 airplane TDM file, i saw that there are only 3 sender objects in the load section:
- [SenderElevatorForceFree] which is amost what i need, but is active only if in autopilot mode,
- [SenderAileronForceFree] which is amost what i need, but is active only if in autopilot mode,
- [SenderElevatorForceGradient] which is only a mapping from the airspeed, and (maibe) it is not usefull.
Thanks in advice.
