How do you connect physically an RC receiver to your computer for simulation using the Radio Control Transmitter Block (from Embeded Coder Support Package for PX4 Autopilots Library) in Simulink?

Hello Kent. If I understand well what you want to do, you need hardware - some sort of autopilot supported by Pixhawk Pilot Support Package (for example Pixhawk Cube). Then you connect the rc receiver to the autopilot, and the autopilot communicates (for example via USB) with Matlab / Simulink installed on computer. A hardware prepared in this way allows you to read and use in Matlab / Simulink the signals sent from the rc transmitter to the rc receiver.
