464: B737 MFD & EICAS Released

The B737 MFD (Multi-Function Display) and EICAS (Engine Indicating and Crew Alerting System) are now ready.   Probably don’t need explanations from me about what they are.
   
Just one thing to note about the MFD: NO waypoints and airports will be shown on the display due to limitations of the Flight Instrument Panel (FIP) itself.  However, all other features found on the expanded and circular models are virtually implemented.

Current users of the B737 PFD could contact me for a 20% off discount if interested in these two gauges.  Others please visit my store.

463: B737 PFD Released

The B737 PFD has just been released.   It is so far the most complicated FIP gauge I’ve ever made, even with the experience I had from the Garmin G5 PFD.

Those who purchased it should have the download link in their mailboxes by now.  For the MFD and EICAS I showed in the previous post, they should be ready in the next few days.   Continue reading

462: B737 PFD Photo Preview

The bug checking and fine-tuning for the B737 PFD (Primary Flight Display) is completed.   Following is a photo (click to enlarge) of it with the coming EICAS (Engine Indicating and Crew Alerting System) and MFD (Multi-Function Display) sitting next to it.
I feel excited too and the PFD should be ready by end of the week as scheduled. Continue reading

461: B737 PFD to be Released Soon

In the last few weeks, I’ve been working hard on the Primary Flight Display (PFD) for the FSX default B737.   The development is based on the feedback from users, especially G5 PFD users, who want somethings truly matching the B737.

The gauge is generally completed with all the features found on the default B737 PFD, such as warning bars and displays for maximum and minimum speeds, decision height and altitude, etc.

At present, codes and functions are being optimized.   It is expected to be ready within the next two weeks. Continue reading

460: B737 Gauges Now PMDG Compatible

Last week, a user of my default FSX B737 Flaps Indicator in Italy asked if the gauge could be modified to cope with the PMDG B737.  Since there were similar requests, I finally made a purchase of the aircraft to check the possibility.

After some modifications, the Flaps Indicator and Wet compass of the B737 gauges are now compatible with the PMDG 737 via extra versions customized for  
the aircraft.   However, the back light effect recently implemented on the B737 gauges is still ONLY good for the FSX Default B737. Continue reading

458: Speed Brake on Mooney Bravo ASI

Thanks to Kenneth Quinn in the US who requested an indication for the Speed Brake engagement on the Mooney Bravo.  Now the feature is implemented on the airspeed indicator accordingly.

Users of the Mooney Bravo gauges should have received the update in their mailboxes by now.   If not, send me an email or notify me in the Comment section below.

 

454: Generic G5 PFD Update

Since the many versions coming with the Generic G5 PFD look so similar to each other, even myself I find it hard to tell from which is which.

To make things easier, the updated version of the gauge now displays the corresponding aircraft model that the PFD is intended for when the battery is off.
    
Users should have found the download links in their mailboxes by now.

452: New Legacy Airspeed Indicator

The Airspeed Indicator for the Lancair Legacy from RealAir Simulations is now available from the FIP Gauge Store.

Although there are still no engine gauges specifically developed (or planned) for the aircraft yet, Legacy pilots should be able to compose an operable cockpit with most of the key instrument from the ASI and the MULTI Shared Gauges under the RealAir category now.

451: Hidden Tachometer on A2A C172R

This morning I received an email from Paul Wasserman who asked me why the red line on my A2A C172R tachometer is set at 2,400 rpm, rather than 2,700 rpm as shown on his cockpit.   Looking at his photo, I was bewildered because I had never seen the gauge before; and it was the first time someone reported to me about this inconsistency.

In order to confirm that there were nothing I had missed, I re-downloaded, re-installed and re-updated the aircraft in the following hours.   “Without luck”, the result was the same — the red line is still at 2,400 rpm.   I really had my head scratched. Continue reading
