Last year I participated in the reverse engineering of the futaba PCM1024Z protocol. The results could possibly be used in this project...

Frederic: Very Interesting work on Reverse Engineering a FUTABA PCM protocol.
10 years ago, AMBROSIA RC FLIGHT SIMULATOR is quite Popular, its was the Most Realistic Simulator during those time. The Transmitter Joystick is made by Futaba it use SERIAL INTERFACE.....Software is not copy protected....Try to Reverse Engineer the transmitter joystick, it use a simple serial protocol, with no handshaking procedure. the transmitter Joystick, just keep sending a 5 bytes of data, its Aileron, Elvevator, Throttle, Rudder and Checksum.....I connect a LAPTOP between the Joystick and PC, use the LAPTOP to CAPTURE all the data send by JOystick.....my problem is how Joystick compute for the CHECKSUM.....I am not sure if its a CHECKSUM...or this might be a sort of SYNCHRONIZATION checksum....or this might be a CRC checksum.
I Downloaded the CAPTURE data to LOTUS 123. and try a different formula on how they compute the CHECKSUM.
my question is, Is there a program that can decode or decript this, so we can compute for the checksum?

Stevesey: Thanks for your offer......but I already sold the units 8 years ago, during those time Internet is not so popular yet.....I am sure guys here can decipher it.
I download it all the data to LOTUS 123, its 5 column, Aileron, Elevator,Throttle,Rudder and Checksum.....I even convert it to Binary number, to see some pattern they use......my guess its a CRC checksum....I just do not know how to compute for CRC checksum.
if Guys here can decipher a FUTABA PCM 1024, I'm that much easy to decode a simple CRC checksum.
10 years ago, Lots of people here want that AMBROSIA RC Flight simulator, cost about USD 200. too bad it can not accept a standard IBM joystick.....the most common simulator they use is made by DAVE BROWN, cause it just use a standard IBM joystick.

When you search the Web you will find lots of algorithms, and even code, to calculate a crc. There are even descriptions on how to “reverse” a crc.
I suppose you could also make a simple app/script that iterates over all possible polynomes, especially for crc8. Anyway, I understand that it is a fairly theoretical question...
