Writing code for running in simulation

I've written some code for ardupilot recently, and before I try it on my aircraft (and potentially crash it), I was hoping to run it in the simulation using X-Plane.  I enabled the HIL_MODE_ATTITUDE in the APM code and got the simulation running fine

Custom flight modes


I'm relatively new to Arduino and Ardupilot, but my background is in electrical engineering, so C++ is not entirely new to me.  I'm currently working on a small UAV project and I need some help.  I posted in the Arduplane forums, but so far no
