Mindstar GNS530 on Ruscool Hardware

Recommended Posts

Here is a video of the Mindstar GNS software running on a hardware module from Ruscool Electronics in New Zealand.  While not that cheap it does provide a fine simulation of the Garmin unit with full hardware activation of all the Mindstar functions.  The RNS530 (as Ruscool calls their module) uses a keyboard emulator of sorts built into the unit which sends keystrokes to the sim which is then interpreted by their custom application running in the sim and talking to FSUIPC.  Needless to say both the hardware and software have corresponding config files which must match up to activate the functions as can be seen in the video.  All works well on the bench, next is to install in the sim and fly!


Of course before you ask, no the Mindstar software isn't compatible with Prepa3D v4 due to that being a 64bit application whereas the Mindstar is currently only 32bit.
