There's another tri-star panel that I think is better (and newer) than Ahlberg's that I use on my L-1011. Let me find the link and I'll post it here.J

It's a panel by V. Sokolav (includes Mike Stone's L1011 visual model with a MUCH improved FDE). The panel is pretty slick too. It's available at the "other" site :)

Repearting the last poster's question: where did that panel come from? If it's Flightsoft's 'Fly to Hawaii', I'd be interested in your comments.Thanks,Bruce.

Bruce:Just adding my two cents. I also use Steffan Albergh's DC-10 panel and he and Alain Capt's colaborative effort for the MD-11. Alex ChristoffN562ZMinneapolis, MNThermobulb@aol.com

Some great ideas there. Other then the (maybe) Flight to Hawaii panel, do any of those panels have any enhanced auto-pilot equipment, such as a working INS? Thanks,Bruce.

The Alain Capt panel is a really good one on its technical merits, but be advised you will have to run it at 1024x768. He's still using 256-color panel graphics from the dark ages. If you attempt to scale the panel image (up or down), it will be distorted and the text will be illegible.

Here are the panels I use for the MD-10, MD-11, and the DC-10.The MD-10 panel shows a rework of the bitmap I did a while ago of Alain Capt and my MD-11 panel. The MD-11 panel is what Bill Grabowski is currently working on (I am only a alpha/beta tester on that one). And the Dc-10 panel is from Flightsoft, with a modified upper panel for better visuals. :-)Happy contrailing, :-waveStaffan AhlbergFreeware Flight GroupStockholm/Sweden/ESSA

Hi,I like Flightsofts DC-10 panel very much. It is by far, the best DC-10 panel available. Even though there are some switches which does not work (eyecandy).The panel really gives you the flying feel of an "old diesel", with a very much used look. :-)The functions are working great, even if the autopilot could have been more programmed as the real thing, with a full working thrust rating system. But I guess that the target user group of "Fly to Hawaii", really is all simmers. That is why Flightsoft had to make a lot of compromises.I think that the sounds are quite equal to Mike Hambly

Thanks everyone.It's good to get an accurate review of Flight to Hawaii, Staffan. I've been looking for a review for a while on that product. Does it have a working INS system?Thanks,Bruce.
