Re: Stepper 28BYJ loosing steps

It's indeed not really RPM I think, it is more like a 'factor'. The 28BYJ is heavily geared, that's why it is so slow. There are probably stepper motors which are less or not geared with more power.
You can also use a stepper driver like the VID-6606.

Re: Stepper 28BYJ loosing steps

Assuming you're using 4.0, did you flash the Arduino with the latest firmware? The x25's and x27's are very fast, but indeed not powerful. Not that precise either, but better than a servo :) Flight Illusion uses mainly VID stepper motors, which are better, and maybe the real Juken Swiss motors are e...

Re: Stepper 28BYJ loosing steps

Oh by the way, a speed of 60 is way way too much. Its maximum is under 20, closer to 10 even if I remember correctly. If you go too high then it indeed will loose a few steps and become jerky.

Re: Stepper 28BYJ loosing steps

What we noticed is that this motor doesn't necessarily have 4096 steps. I had to play around a bit to find the number that fits this motor. That's why a calibration sensor is important. It is cheap Chinese hardware, so you shouldn't expect too much.

Re: Problems connecting to FS2020

As I mentioned in my previous post, no they do not have to be on the same computer. Yes FS2020 must be running.

Did you check the Air Manager log if there's anything useful in there?

Re: My King Air 200 DIY Simulator

I agree, very neat wiring. Also great job on all the small details like the lighting posts, the real ones are freakishly expensive (~$60).
