278: Heading Gyro with Compass & RPM

This Heading Indicator is the fifth gauge in my Integrated Series for the Cessna 172.    Next to the Heading Gyro is a small but clear enough Magnetic Compass, which is so layouted to provide a quick reference when performing gyro calibration.


The RPM indicator, although in compact size as well, is placed in a location closing to the real cockpit layout in full-size.   A digital RPM representation is also added for more precise control needs.

Furthermore, a Blue Color Pointer, which shows the direction of the wind, is added to the Heading Gyro as well.   This is no cheat but aims to compensate the lack of wind direction references, such as tree movements and smokes coming out from chimneys, in real flying.

Surely the gauge is using the metallic black texture and will dim at power off as its four earlier sublings.   In addition, the Heading Gyro and Bug Position can be adjusted via the two knobs and the buttons on the FIP accordingly.

  1. Humm, original post did not make it. OK try again.
    Tom, Great gauge, one comment would on a future update consider putting in a wind speed value on the gauge someplace? Direction is great but a full picture really needs speed.


  2. Cannot get to link Tom,
