4. Configure the simulator (optional).
These four parameters must have the same value for the simulator. They are configured for X-Plane 11 in X-Plane Settings. Frequency (Hz) of Hil Simulator corresponds to UDP Rate (packets per second) of X-Plane, since the autopilot sends and receives data at this frequency.
After following the previous steps, read X-Plane 11 section to simulate the connected autopilot.
