Well, i would need the forces applied on the yoke by the control surfaces, or maybe just having the forces applied on the control surfaces (ailerons, elevators and rudder) could be a good starting point.
I would recommend using the SenderElevatorForceFree and SenderAileronForceFree objects
Unfortunatly those senders does not give informations about forces applied, but only the status of the elevator and the aileron (the position of the yoke), giving an output value between -1 and +1, witch is an information that i already have.
Yes, for testing purposes our C172 (and also B747) I think have experimental senders to create a force feedback.
I have a feeling that force feedback will be added naturally when we add hydraulics to the aircraft.
It would be great to help you testing those senders. Also, I have the same sensation as you: when you will add hydraulics to the aircraft, force feedback will be a consequence, but i also think that with the data today already processed by the simulator engine it is possible to do more, only need some sort of sender to take it out.
hi fragio, could you explain how you send send the data to airmanager? maybe a little tutorial? thanks volker
It is pretty easy: AirManager is already ready to accept them, you only have to look at the [sender] you want its information to be "send" to AirManager, for example (from c172.tdm):
then in AirManager you can create a new gauge and write
