Hi, I'm trying to build a gauge speed using servo. I have microservo and is geared so that it gives about 350 degrees. I entered into MobiFlight offset from FSUIPC and 0x02BC. Servo is working, but when I try to track down the plane and at a maximum value of 18000 servo was about 2x faster, so I manually entered the max value of 55000 It's better, but still there is a difference of about 10%. I do it well? Or is it a different process?

do you try with 65536 ?

I have an IAS for robinson r44 with min value 0 and max value 16384 works fine but a gear is missing to extend the rotation, sure that gear will make me change the values.

Hey, I do not know what it is 65,536, I have not found such an offset. I use 02BC, in his writing, that knots * 128. So I'm at 160 knots * 128 = 20480, and because I transfer 1: 2, so I'll give the mask a maximum value of 40,960 and a maximum rotation of 100%. However, as I wrote, it's not accurate, so today I tried to edit tab Compare 10 knots input and output values, it seems that it might work. Let's see, is it possible that I am well on the way Peter

I also use the offset 02BC but *1.6 and values min 0 and max 16384


the normal values range that use fsuipc it's a 16384 or 65536.
You can use also the values of MFconnector (fsuipc value and output value) for compare and adjust the range.

If you get the setup, please write the solve here :P

Hey, so it seems that I managed to adjust. So my setup is: microservo
via transfer gears 1: 2 to from 180 degrees to 360 degrees. Table setting Mobiflight I entered the maximum value (offset) value 40960 (160 * 280 * 2) and 100% of the rotation. I printed image at 160 knots, and now I'm on the plane XPlane P3D or edited 30 knots speed output and output value SIM MB, so give me a servo pointed to what it should be. And from 10 knots to 160 knots edited, so it showed as well. Of course I was edited in Mobiflight Compare tab.
Example table Compare:
knots IN OUT
0 0 0
30 2492 1800
40 5165 4800
50 6435 7500
60 7600 10520
70 8813 12927
etc
