Artificial horizon

I am trying to program an artificial horizon to be used in an experimental aircraft. How do I do this???? Are there any samples or references to this subject on the net or other places???

Thanks

I'm no pilot, but a crude way of doing this is to use a LabView gauge indicator with multiple needles. Do the math to make the needles always point in opposite directions.
Run the attached LabView 6.1 example and play with the stick.

Hi, I am also trying to find an artificial horizon and have also posted on a few forums. Have you had any success and if so could I have the instrument?

thanks

This thread

shows you how to use the Picture control.

Altenbach "rotate image" example can be used as a start.

If this work for you, please post your final solution and I will link your solution into that collection.

A search for "horizon" in this forum gives this most interesting example, still waiting for a bunch of 5 stars...
 
Correction :
Andrew, since you already found this example, can you explain in more details what you were searching for ?

Correction 2 :
Just in case you had some difficulties opening the Macintosh example file (I forgot the .vi extension), here is a window version

CC,

Yes...  you deserve multiple *****. 

we'll have to work on that... 

Unfortunately, multiple 5-star assignments do not increase the overall count.. only improves avg.  (yes.. you mentionned that before) 😉

Wrong ! That's the reverse !
JLV, I can see that you didn't improve your attention since the time when you sent crawling worms to the North of France, while I'm living in the South (see the post date...)  😛 😄  Anyway, merci pour les étoiles !
