Hi all,
I have one Arduino NANO Clone (with drivers) and one Arduino UNO R3. I would use MF Connector for create a panel for plane on FSX.

When i open MF, last version, MF not function. in Setting configure modules is empty and when I write in the directory for "Path to Arduino IDE" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino, MF charge nothing and Modules and FSUIPC remain alert, with the danger symbol on a yellow background ... Can anyone help me?
Thanks in advance

Dan

Hi Dan
Fox Delta Niner Zero is cleared for Takeoff :thumbup:
Welcome to Mobiflight !

Badly you got the wrong equipment for using Mobiflight !

Mobiflight is designed for Arduino MEGA 2560 R3 ! ONLY that Board is working perfect ..... (Also China clones !)
In theory also Arduino Pro MICRO and UNO can be used but not all things work and there is also no Support for it in this Forum (using on own Risk)
So you need to order a MEGA at first to tryout our Software!

NOTE for the future:
It´s High recommend to install all Simulator Stuff ( Whatever Arduino IDE, Mobiflight, the FSX itself and so on) in a "free" directory. The /programmfilesx86 folder is prodected by Windows.
Best way would be a own SSD Harddrive..... If not available next best is a own partition of a existing Drive like d:/ ..... If also not possible you should use a own folder for the your software like c:/Flightsim/xxxxx.

This is no must have..... But it protect from a lot of problems in case of wrong Administrator rights !
Good Luck !
