My rig is

Mega 2560 Board
Dual concentric rotary encoder with pushbutton ELMA E37
And 7 segment display for 8 digits

Issue #1
I can get the LED to show the NAV 1, and it updates when i turn the knob INSIDE the sim.
I can get the dual encoder to turn to right and left and change values on the LED, but IT IS not updating in the sim.

Issue #2
When turning the knobs, it takes two detents to change value on the LED. I want it to react on one detent.

Issue #3
With my push btn on the dual encoder i can get it to work with some functions. But i wanna map it to swap freq on Com1. I have tred the "Radio - Com1 Swap freq" in FSUIPC and the "COM_STBY_RADIO_SWAP" in the EventID section

Would really be greatful for the help, building a Radio Stack here =)
Really amazing software.

What airplane are you using in the sim? A complex addon or default FSX?

The use case you describe has been done several times by different users - so please keep trying.

Actually there is an example file that comes with mobiflight (see examples-folder). Please try that out. There you'll find


Com1 Stby
Com1 Stby KHz
Com1 Switch

Keep on trying!
Have a great day!
