    Hello friends!
    I had the idea of building a flight simulator with two 360-degree axes for a long time, but I did not have enough knowledge in arduino. After mastering a few simpler projects, I still took up the construction of one axle. This is a layout, not full size. I took a frequency converter, an asynchronous motor and learned how to control them using an arduino, then I twisted a worm gear and an additional gearbox to the motor to get a reduction of 1:100, but in fact 1:110, since I planned to use the motor at 3000 rpm in minute. For feedback, I used a 360-degree hall sensor.
    I had an old version of simtools 1.3, by setting it up I got a 360 degree rotation with a zero crossing. I also checked it manually by sending 8bit data to the comport and made sure that the axis was 100% working.
    Further disappointment awaited me, I have a plugin for IL-2 Sturmovik and for Wartunder, having tried both, I did not get 360 degree rotation due to the fact that the plugin does not provide full 360 degree telemetry.
    After re-reading the information on the warthunder plugin for simtools 2.0, I realized that it gives telemetry in 360 degrees.
    Can anyone confirm this information?
    It is currently impossible for me to buy a simtools 2 license, with the free plugin that is available I cannot continue further research.
    Maybe someone was able to get full-fledged 360-degree telemetry from the game? Everything I have found on this forum is nothing more than what I have been able to achieve.
    I would be grateful for any help or advice. асинхрон.jpg

    If you use something like flypt mover and run your axis in velocity mode you wont have to worry about zero crossing. Easier said than done i know, but it works much better. You cant filter position data and deal with the zero crossing at the same time so you have much less control.
