No, this isn’t a controller for Microsoft Flight Simulator, but rather a LEGO creation that lets you control a miniature plane. Riley of Brick Science came up with this idea after wanting to create a LEGO-based game that can be put on a table, complete with a LEGO EV3 joystick and throttle. Think of it as a flight simulator, but in real-life, all powered by the EV3 motor, which is used to power Mindstorms robots as well as other machines built from the colorful bricks.
Yes, it requires custom code to get everything working, as it’s not a simple press one button to move a certain part of the plane. After countless hours, the plane was synced with the throttle and joystick, just like a real aircraft. That’s not all, Riley also managed to get a LEGO helicopter working with the LEGO EV3 components.
