Direct Drive Servo Wheels requires a highly dedicated piece of firmware:
- mimic a USB device
- interpret MS force feedback inputs
- compute combination of effects
- drive the servo driver

As Simtools is not reading FFB inputs (but telemetry data), it cannot be used for a FFB wheel.

Some have "designed" a FFB wheel based on telemetry but results are poor and the cost of a servo + drive is clearly wasted.

Few firmwares have been edited:
- RFR firmware on LPC Pack by Mizoo (first but now discontinued)
- MMos firmware on STM Disco by Mmos
- OSW firmware on ST MDisco by Bberger
- Ai-wave firmware on Arduino Leonardo by Etienne (under beta)​
