Hello guys,

nice to be here.
I am currently building an A310 homecockpit based on the MSFS 2020 Inibuilds A310 and i do not find a satisfactory solution for the ECAM, PFD and Nav Display Hardware.

I could use normal 5 inch HDMI Displays with the MSFS screen function utilizing HDMI or I would like to ask if there is a way to use the Arduino with mobiflight giving as output?
Is that possible because it would need graphics displayed in colors?

If yes what displays can be used ?

Thank you very much for all your help.

Thats not possible.

For sure there exist Displays that can be controlled with a Arduino ... With the right Firmware and a Computer side Software that tell the Display what it should show !

But this is not a Mobiflight thematic. We support devices we can fit with Data via Mobiflight.... E.g. a 7Seg we show the current value of Altitude ( we can read from sim)

What you expect is difficult, cause i not know a aircraft that export the data , what is writton on Screens like Ecam or Navigation Display and PFD. ( Only the FMS can be read for some advanced AddOns)
In easy words.... For all Aircrafts i use or know by my work in MF support the screens are like a grafic.... So you need to show this grafic (E.g. a outdock window) on a PC Monitor.
Good AddOns also support those Displays as own running Programms.... So you can Run them via Network e.g. on a second computer.

Whatever it is maybe posible to get the data.... We not plan to add individual Screens into MF. For this a own software (PC Side) and a own Firmware on Arduino is (in my opinion) more logical.
Good Luck !

You can use this great software to create a profile based on Aircraft used

Can you post here a link for the 5" Display you bought?

Hello together,

sorry for the late response.
Thank you, asessa for the link for the screen pop out software.
I used 0.96inch graphic displays for my Autopilot Panel and I hope i could get them used with this software.
Does that work like the msfs built in popout works? Selecting the screen and then moving it to where you need it?
Does the graphic lcd need to be connected with arduino and mobiflight? Or how is the input into the computer realized?
It is a simple I2C display with GND, VCC, SCL and SDA pins

Thanks for all your support on this

Kind Regards,
