The glareshield is covered with leather and I have installed my first LED lighting.

Today I present you the first episode of my new series "The Cockpitshow". In this show you have the possibility to present your homecockpits or special builds to the community. If you want to be part of the show then visit my website for further informations about the pictures you have to send to me.
I hope I will see you soon in one of the next episodes.

I finished the covering of my front window frame. Now the look to the windshield is much more Boeing like.

Finally I could do my first tests to connect an arduino to Prosim. Follow me along on my way through the theory and the programming.

Michael,

That is well constructed and edited video, and will definitely be a help to others. I do have one general question/observation about your approach of using SIOC as an intermediary between your Arduino and Prosim.

Prosim supports a generic TCP interface and I would have thought that it was possible to communicate directly between the Arduino and Prosim without having to use SIOC as well. I know from my own coding that the basic principles of the comms into SIOC and the comms into Prosim are similar: you make a TCP connection to both on a specified port, and then send/receive text formatted data.

Is there a particular reason that you have chosen to use SIOC in the middle?

Regards

Simon.

I have made tests with the generic com port with a telnet client some years ago. The simple reason why I've choosen the IOCP for the first run was that I don't know if the generic connection is an exclusive communication between Prosim and the arduino. The advantage I described in the video is that the arduino only receives the data traffic that is useful for him. Is there an equal concept using the generic connection? Or would I have to add different generic coms and use different ports? If this is possible I would give it a try because I think every additional software I can eliminate will increase the communication speed.

Hey Michael, the generic driver has a filter option where you can filter data sent to your client.
If you send filter = xxxx to prosim, prosim will start sending just this data (xxxx). You can keep sending the filter command as many times as you need.

nice videos, btw. ;)

Is this documented somewhere?
I only have found the documentation from 2012. This filter isn't mentioned there.

No, I don't think the filter command is documented.
