I agree whole heartedly. Only have a few problems,most of which should be solved on next test flight, with the suggestions from the FAQ in the manual. However one issue I havent seen covered, I am getting NO fuel levels in the gauges. Any help on that would be appreciated. GREAT PANEL RICHARD!!!!!!Mark

Agreed. It's an awesome panel. Mike's 727 model, your FedEx repaint, and this new panel are a great combination. :DRyan-Flightpro08 :-coolVATSIM Pilot/ControllerZLA ARTCC Controller 1 (C-1)SAN TRACON Lead [link:www.taxiwaysigns.com]Taxiwaysigns.com Scenery Designer-----------------------------My "Home Made" System Specs:Intel Pentium 4 2.2GHz ProcessorTurbo Gamer ATX Mid-Tower with 420W Power SupplyEPoX 4G4A Motherboard with Intel 845G ChipsetVisiontek XTASY GeForce4 128MB Ti4600 (Det 40.41 Drivers)512MB PC2100 DDR RAM40GB Matrox 7200RPM Hard DriveWindows XP Home Edition*No CPU or GPU Overclocking*3dMark2001SE Score: 11298

Just downloaded it and fired it up for a quick takeoff and climbout, and so far it works completely as advertised, the panel and views are great, and functionality of the AP and other systems are great. Gives a great sense of what it is like to fly a vintage jet.

Don't worry, Anniette ... Richard is famous, and this will end up being one of the true great panels. It is absolutely astonishing work for a freeware panel produced by one fellow. Those sounds! I flew London/Paris last night to check it out (Air Anniette, of course) and was smiling all the way!Mark "Dark Moment" Beaumonthttp://www.swiremariners.com/cxkaitak.htmlhttp://www.swiremariners.com/reds.htmlhttp://www.swiremariners.com/cxkaitakv3.jpg

Do you not just Love the Taxi limiter feature It has made Getting to the runway Fun :)I just been getting to know it and it takes me 30 minutes to learn to start the engines (all three ) and then I did some circuits ,I can not imagine using other panels after this one as they will not be Quiet So fun but I still have to ignor the big beep on number one engine on take off have not worked out that yet but my co pilote has got a very nervouse Grin on his face everytime I ignor it and take off :)Anniette xxxxxxxx

I have to agree with everyone here, that this is one of the best "Freeware" panel's I have ever seen. Kinda makes you wander what Captsim and DF could do to make it much more realistic and get my hard earned dollars too.One thing, does anyone else have that constant "Card in the Fan" sound at all times in this panel...sounds like a stick shaker or a leaf caught in the A/C blower fan. Might just be the noise A/C in this cockpit.Steve ParkKSDFwww.flightbase2000.com

That's the vibrator for the altimeter and I can confirm from cockpit video that it's present in the real aircraft... ;)

But why would an altimeter need a vibrator? I've been wondering that for a few days now. :-) Can someone enlighten me?Martin767 fetishistIt's a lot like life and that's what's appealing

I'll add my kudos to the growing list on this post. This is a labor of love and it shows. Also - don't miss out on Charles Fox's outstanding FDE for the 727. It's referenced in Richard's documentation and it really makes a different to the feel of the plane. With people like Charles Fox, Mike Stone, and Richard Probst out there, this hobby is a wonderful place to be right now.You guys are all awesome.Thanks,Philip.

Well I think it is the same reason ,because being a altimeter is a lonely life ?Anniette xxxxxxxxx

I thought the altimeter had many friends: The VSI (its closest neighbour) and the backup altimeter, and if it just goes across the instrument panel it can become friends with the F/Os instruments too!Martin767 fetishistIt's a lot like life and that's what's appealing
