Connect to third-party FlightGear software, connect joystick interface, or input FlightGear data to models

Flight Simulator Interface describes how to install and set up the FlightGear software to visualize your flight paths. To control flight paths and trajectories, use joysticks, which you connect using the joystick blocks in this sublibrary.

FlightGear software and pilot joystick blocks are not supported in Simulink Online.
