I have configured an elevation trim indicator for my TQ with a servo using FSUIPC offset: OBC2. The value for this offset is from -16383 to +16383 (it follows the input for offset 0BC0). It is not possible to enter a negative value in the interpolation settings table on the compare tab.I figured it out by reading the offset value on the main screen which is by the way a very useful tool when configuring modules. I saw that negative offset values are rolled over 65536 so the range required for that offset in Mobiflight is:

-16383 = 49153

+16383 = 16383

The more I experiment with MobiFlight, the more I think it has great potential.

Hello Pierre,

great to see that you found a solution.
I also have set up a trim wheel indicator these days - i had no problem with configuring it. I want to share this as a video during the next days.
Have a great day!
