3.1​ Can I make an automatic control script with a given RPM or thrust input?

In general, the automatic script control allows output to the stand through the throttle (%). If you wish to make a close-loop control to hold or to achieve a certain level of thrust or RPM, please follow this guideline.

We have an example of closed loop control script, which can be used as a starting point: Closed Loop Control Script

We also recommend reading the RCbenchmark GUI library and API before programming located under the Automatic Control tab:
