Over the last 10 months, I’ve put more time on making gauges for FIPs than flying in the virtual world, as I am excited to see them evolving from some original basic attempts into current skillful works. A rather unexpected alternative satisfaction I never thought would have gained from flight simulation.
The latest project I just finished is the Mooney Bravo, which consists of two integrated Engine gauges plus the ASI, HSI and TCR. Some new techniques have been used in this gauge set, such as a selectable DME 1 & 2 display, and the stepping-style elevator, rudder and wing flaps indicators.
Together with the already released ATT, ALT, VSI from the default Baron B58; and ADF and VOR2 from the C172SP, I am proud to say that they form a “bravo” compo for the aircraft.
Anyone interested in the gauge set could visit my store or click on the images above for more information.
It may be true that the Mooney Bravo is not as hot as the Cessna 172, but it is still fun to fly with, both in the real and simulation worlds.
BTW, I am now working with the developer of SPAD.neXt regarding “playability” of my gauges in X-Plane. Fixes are on the way and the target of full compatibility shouldn’t be too far in the future. In addition, customized X-Plane gauges should come along as well.
Lastly, today is the seventh day of the first lunar month. According to the Chinese tradition, it is the day of man, which figuratively means a birthday of all mankind.
So, Happy Birthday and wish us all have a prosperous and healthy 2017 and year of the rooster!
