In VR, I find it very hard to change heading selection or altitude selection with my mouse. My plan is to use a small rotary encoder and an Arduino micro that connects as a keyboard. I can go easy and basically send a “heading increase” key each time the encoder detects a twist. Or I can maybe send the heading?
What I mean is - send a key command to increase the heading on twist. Or send the actual heading, meaning that he Arduino “knows” the heading and sends a new value.
This would mean I could display the headings on the Arduino. But useless when in VR. Regardless. Would this be best suited to maybe create a c# client app that my Arduino speaks to, and then use the SDK Api to send the heading? (Can that be done??) or should I just send a key that is bound to Heading Increase or Decrease?
I’m looking for a basic SDK example of, for example, enable and disable auto pilot from a 3rd party (c#) app. Any help or advice would be very helpful. I feel that using the SDK would be more correct than a send key to the sim.
