G1000-MFD
It is possible now.

John of Simgeneering, a private pilot in New Zealand, said he was inspired to create his own since he couldn’t find one on the market for his instrument rating training.

So far, he has implmented an emulator for the G1000 MFD (Multi-function Display), which Continue reading

655: ASI & ATT2 for Zlin Shock Ultra

Two new gauges for Zlin Shock Ultra in MSFS 2020 has been developed.  One is the Airspeed Indicator (ASI); and the other is the current Multi-shared Attitude Indicator (ATT) integrated with a small inclinometer.

Many Airspeed Indicators in MSFS 2020, including this Zlin one, are using km/h unit — a bit odd from KNOTS and MHP that are commonly used in FSX, P3D and X-Plane.  So I am including a KNOTS version as well for users to choose from.

For the variation of the MS-Shared ATT, Continue reading

News: P3D v5.1 Released

Lockheed Martin has finally released P3D v5.1.   Seems like not too many people are aware of it (based on the number of respondents in its support forum) while most people are keeping their eyes on MSFS — me the same.

Anyway, hope this update solves or at least improves the many issues reported after its launch.  There are still many features MSFS can’t or doesn’t do properly today.
