Unpack net_ctrl Packet from FlightGear

Unpack net_ctrl variable packet received from FlightGear

  • Library:
  • Aerospace Blockset / Animation / Flight Simulator Interfaces

  • Unpack net_ctrl Packet from FlightGear block

Description

The Unpack net_ctrl Packet from FlightGear block unpacks net_ctrl variable packets received from FlightGear via the Receive net_ctrl Packet from FlightGear block, and makes them available for the Simulink® environment.

The Aerospace Blockset™ product supports FlightGear versions starting from v2.6. If you are using a FlightGear version older than 2.6, the model displays a notification from the Simulink Upgrade Advisor. Consider using the Upgrade Advisor to upgrade your FlightGear version. For more information, see Supported FlightGear Versions.
