That's a good question. For Link-only models, attaching .RFX archives of the EA (Entire Aircraft) to a thread here in the FlightAxis Link forums might work. We could consider adding a swap page category for Link models if there is enough demand.

For dual use models that can be flown manually, maybe it would be worth configuring the software radio to switch between manual and Link flight using the three-position switch? Those could certainly be added to the Swap pages without hazard, and the Link implementation could command direct control by sending a high signal on channel 8.

For some models that will be possible, but it will make for quite complex physics model setup as the method of doing conditional mixing is quite complex.
It also won't work for models that need all 8 inputs. I'm running into that limit quite a lot unfortunately, especially for tilt-rotors.

Thank you for the great examples in implementing the SOAP interface. Is there a way that the RealFlight simulation can be reset externally by a SOAP envelope? In the ardupilot set up I saw three types of envelops the SITL simulator sends (Release Controller, Inject Controller, Exchange). Are there any others?
