    Hi from germany,

    I am currently developing an Arduino sketch to connect my Simukit SK3 rig to Simtools via a cheap ESP32 Controller Board with integrated WLAN (instead of the more widely used Arduino Uno or Mega and USB).

    This would have the benefit that no physical electrical connection between the PC and the rig is needed. The ESP32 controller board is powered by the rig and connects via WLAN /UDP to Simtools. First Tests with Simtools Axis Control were succesful, but my rig isnt finished yet.

    Has anybody experiences or suggestions /comments regarding this approach?

    Regards, Viktor
