Using FSUIPC I can read and write to Flight Sim X however I would like to write a simple module and load it into FSX. Essentially I just want to do some automation tasks while flying the plane. Any help with this would be much appreciated.
The serial interface is pretty simple, use the function SerialPort.ReadLine(). The documentation that comes with the serial port class will tell you how to use the ReadLine() function to capture all data read from the port. To send data to the serial port you will need to use SerialPort.Write(). More docs on these functions should be available on the MSDN website.

Any helpThanks in advanceBob
I have also tried using the FS2020 sample FSUIPC demo, which is in the FS2020 demo package. It requires you to enter the COM port information for the FSUIPC on your Arduino board. If I do that, I get the exact same results as described above.
To add to the confusion, there are FS2020 programs that will allow you to read and write to FS2020 SIMCOM. This makes me think there is a way to do this with FSUIPC itself, but I don't know how. 827ec27edc
