XPLMPlaneDrawState_t

This structure contains additional plane parameter info to be passed to draw plane. Make sure to fill in the size of the structure field with sizeof(XPLMDrawPlaneState_t) so that the XPLM can tell how many fields you knew about when compiling your plugin (since more fields may be added later).

Most of these fields are ratios from 0 to 1 for control input. X-Plane calculates what the actual controls look like based on the .acf file for that airplane. Note for the yoke inputs, this is what the pilot of the plane has commanded (post artificial stability system if there were one) and affects aelerons, rudder, etc. It is not necessarily related to the actual position of the plane!
