Hi, I am wanting to run the ARDUPLANE Board in RC plane, and use the data from that via Mavlink to show the realtime flight on X-Plane.
I can get the RC TX to control the X-Plane, but what I want is for the X-Plane to just look at the Raw data, GPS, INU, ASI, ALT. and use this to show what is going on in the plane via X-Plane.
I am sure this has been asked before, so if it has, I am sorry :)
so you want to fly a real plane, and have it simulated live in xplane?
the only thing i worry about is the power of the pc needed to do this in real time. does it need to be realtime? or would via log playback work ok as well?
Hi, You can't use the SIM firmware in this case. You would need to use the normal firmware. Looking at it you may need to configure x-plane so that it was only seeing data from MP and not sending ATTITUDE/GPS data as in the SIM config?
OR you may need to configure it as in SIM arrangement. MP is just a data proxy. When x-plane sends data to MP and it forwards the data to APM the normal FW would (should!) ignore those messages about ATTITUDE/GPS data?
In the wiki it states (not sure if it is fixed)
HIL_MODE_SENSORS is not currently (Jan 2012) working. HIL_MODE_ATTITUDE informs ArduPlane of the attitude of the plane but not the accelerations or roll rates. HIL_MODE_SENSORS originally was going to inject the lower level physics into the real sensor code, from which would (hopefully) be derived the same or similar attitude figures, plus more information from the Barometer and so on.
