While waiting for the parts to arrive, I spent some time updating my FlyPT mover profile for DCS and customising a profile I found on the internet for car games, in this case Automobilista 2.
- FlyPT Mover is a free software that transforms the game telemetry into speed/position of each cylinder. It is very complete and its creator has really done a great job for the whole sim community : website. I haven’t tested other software options that are not free.
- The next part is between the PC and the motor controllers. There are several possibilities:
For V2 I used the M4S controller, the developer is very available and nice, the product allows a better resolution than the Thanos controller for the motors, and offers a remote control interface. The feedback from the community seems to be very good, so I’m going to test it ! Some pictures of the test setup, the controller and the remote interface below.
Testing with a single actuator on DCS and AMS2
And finally, the videos with the games in test, the evolution of the software and the engine! To be refined on the real platform. FlyPT allows you to see in real time the 3D rendering of the platform and to see if some spikes are at the end of their travel and to adjust filters, gains and other parameters directly. It’s really a great tool!
See you soon for the next adventures! Don’t hesitate to join us on discord to exchange between enthusiasts 🙂
