The FSX/P3D version of the G5 Gauges for Logitech’s Flight Instrument Panels (FIPs) have been updated to R3, which is now closely matching with the latest Garmin G5. Click on each image below for the list of features implemented.
Users of the G5 Gauges should have received the download links in their mailboxes by now. If not, Continue reading
My original update plan for the G5 FSX/P3D version was June or July this year so I can spend more time on my cockpit rebuilding. However, since many G5 FSX/P3D users asked when the update will be available, I have pulled the plan to the top of my list.
Following is a quick video of the G5 (with dual flight directors) on B58 in motion.
In terms of appearance and operations, Continue reading
The C172SP Standalone Gauges (FSX/P3D) have just been updated to R5r02 with new back-lit effect as shown below comparing the previous version.
For some reasons, the update took a much longer time than expected. Anyway, it’s available now.
Current users should have received download links by now in their mailboxes. If not, contact me by email or Continue reading
In last post, I mentioned that some of the commands I used to assign to buttons and knobs on the FIP are not functioning or matching when using the valuetranscribing feature to run FSX/P3D gauges in X-Plane.
A friend, Rodrigo in Brazil, says the trick is Continue reading
Just noted recently from SPAD.neXt’s website, saying that FIP gauges developed for FSX/P3D platform can now be run in X-Plane using its valuetranscribing feature without any modification. That’s a good news as I have been stuck for more than two years by the incomplete transcodings of SPAD.neXt’s attempt on making FSX/P3D gauges to be compatible in X-Plane.
In the last few days, I’ve been testing the compatibility of many of my FSX/P3D gauges under X-Plane 11 platform running alongside SPAD.neXt. Followings are my findings: Continue reading
A few more sets of FIP gauges for the default Maule M7, Carenado C172N and A2A BeechCraft A35 were developed in the last few months. In addition, the Carenado C152 gauges have also been updated. They are all ready now.
Among them all, the Autopilot Control (APC) for the Maule is the most interesting one as it not only fits on the Maule but also good for most other aircraft, in particular to those setups that don’t equip with any autopilot hardware.
Some friends asked if there will be an Annunciator Panel for X-Plane. Frankly speaking, I never plan to make one in the beginning. Anyway, as they wish…here’s the X-Plane version for the C172SP.
Operation wise, it is similar to the other versions. The panel will pop up automatically on the Wet Compass whenever engine warnings are detected. It will disappear when the signals are gone.
In this way, the notification features can not Continue reading
The Annunciator Panel for the A2A C182T is completed. It’s features are similar to the C172R ANPL released earlier, except that it’s operations and responses are customized for the C182T.

The Annunciator Panels for the A2A C172R and default C172SP are now ready. Below is a video capture of the panel added to the Compass on the A2A C172R.
Similar to the C172SP one previewed in Post 515, the C172R annunciator panel will only pop up when error warning lights or equipment status indications are turned on, so that it will not affect the design and functions of the Wet Compass as well as the overall layout of the FIP gauge setup.
However, since the contents and reactions of each annunciator panel Continue reading
