Hi,
i am trying to get a MCP max bank angle switch to work using a rotary switch have used the button function for each switch click this is unreliable as the start point is not allways 0 Is there a way to set a offset value at each click of the switch.

Please tell us witch plane you use.

For Example with PMDG its possible to do that with a offset value.
Good Luck !

If you Use a Rotary Encoder you have to work with "On Left and On Right" ..... In this way its not Posible cause the switch dont know in witch position it is.

BUT

If you use a real rotary Switch like this http://www.reichelt.de/DS-1/3/index.html?&ACTION=3&LA=446&ARTICLE=7186&artnr=DS+1&SEARCH=drehstufenschalter
it will work.

Not be able to test the right values it at the moment (My Simulator is down for a while) but normaly all Rotary Inputs got the Same System in the PMDG
Te Left Position should be Value 0 And then to The Right Value 1,2,3, and so on.

Conect your switch for every detend to a seperate Pin and config Every Pin with the Value you like in own Config Entrys.

You can find this Values by youreself when you make a Test-Output Config Entry or with the FSUIPC LogMonitor the Offset for Max Bank Angle PMDG 737 is "6536"

i Hope it will work.... I think Values 0,1,2,3,4 will be right !

.
Good Luck !
