Dash 7 question

Recommended Posts

Milton ,love the plane,definetly one of my favorites. A couple questions about the panel. I noticed on the panel the ground speed gauge is gone and the dme 2 gauge is different. When the spotlights are turned on the original groundspeed bmp can still be seen. It seems the dme 2 gauge now displays the groundspeed regaurdless of having a vor tuned in ,and you cannot switch between min and speed. I noticed that in the panel.cfg that those gauges are there but they are// slashed out .Just would like to know if this is all correct. Thanks for the wonderfull plane.

wk,Yep, the nav 2 was causing a lot of grief, and I got tired of messin with it! It worked great on my system, but with so many downloads, that means a lot of system crashes!! Since the new dme2 is only the readout, I moved the ground speed readout down there also, to clean up the panel a little. And the ground speed is not dependant on VOR, and is not switchable. I would have probably eliminated it all together, except there was several calls for something to gauge taxi speed with!!The spotlight thing was an overesite. I missed updating it when we updated the panel!

Thanks for the answers guys, I had no problems with crashes with either versions. Also I forgot to mention ,you also replaced the arm speedbrake gauge with a Hdg,barometric gauge. Just arm the speedbrake the usual way then with the slash? Or is there a switch somewhere I missed on the overhead. Thankyou.
