    Hi Tady

    The Portdrvr (Developed by Keith Daniel) cannot be used with current AMC1.5 board (firmware 1.0 or 1.1) as the communication protocol is different. Portdrvr is using HEX2 values while AMC is using BINARY values. I have contacted Keith about this but he said that he would not upgrade or support it anymore.

    The last version of Portdrvr I have works with HEX2 values that can be read by the old Basic Stamp2 hardware (the one that is presented on my site).


    BTW, X-sim software can read flight simulator motion data too. Take a look on its plugins!!!
