hello everyone, if you can help me configure both the attitude indicator and the speed indicator, with 28byj-48 stepper motors, because I can't get them to work properly as in the default cessna 172 of xplane 11

I'm a big fan of flight simulation, and I like to learn as well as spread my knowledge with whoever needs them.

The Guide above show in a good way how to setup a Stepper and how to do the Config.

For sure in Xplane you can not use "FS2020 Simconnect Variable" .... You must choose for the correct Dataref or the XPUIPC Offset where you can read the Speed.
Also for sure your Sim/Stepper Values can be different if your Gauge have a other Layout.
And the Raw data can also be different... E.g. in that example i expect Sim gives the Speed in a Integer Value of "Knots".
Maybe Xplane give instead a Value of 0-16383 where you need to recalculate by a little formula (explaned in the XPUIPC List) to get knots IAS.

Please give it a try and convert the information from above with your raw data and gauge.
If it not work.... Best way is to contact us in DISCORD.
Those complex things can be done more efficient via Voice Call.
Good Luck !
