How to use the data from a magnetometer - ED tracker alternative?


Recommended Posts

For years I have used the Ed tracker devices successfully to track movement of home made Cyclic (gimbal type) and Rudder (anti torque) pedals. Sadly the support for this device has vanished in thin air and I always had problems with mini USB connectors breaking off.

 

I have now bought a similar device from WIT motion Which measures movement on three axis and and connects via Bluetooth. 

 

I just don't know how to read the data and convert it to something useful that can be read by V joy or something similar. 

 

 

Does anyone have experience with this? 

Hope I've explained myself fairly well, I am not IT savvy enough! 

 

Cheers, Mick

Have you tried OpenTrack?

Iirc, it can convert the EDtracker data to something DCS can use, so it might work with your new device aswell. 

 

Looking forward to your opinions of the new tracker! 

thanks for that info, its definitely something i should look into
