Thanks, Bill, for your help . . . I found the reference to DCA at MAAM's Enhancement page ("DC-3 AIRWAYS PANEL MODIFICATIONS -Modifications by Mark Beaumont of the original panels by Bill Rambow.") and (mistakenly) presumed there was some correlation between the two. I'll check with DC-3 AIRWAYS. Thnx.

My panel is based on the MAAM-SIM panel, modified with Bill Rambow's permission, Bill; hence, its inclusion in the freeware references on our enhancements page at MAAM-SIM's site.Norm's panel is nothing to do with MAAM-SIM, being designed for the default FS9 aircraft. Norm's panel is popular, however, being comprehensive, easy to use and easy on the eyes for those who prefer big and clear gauges.Anyone reading here who has no idea what this thread is about: Norm Hancock is a Senior Vice President over at DC-3 Airways (www.dc3airways.com) where I myself lurk about as VP Fleet. DC-3 Airways has nearly 1400 registered pilots who enjoy flying .... you guessed, the DC-3. So if you've just bought yourself the MAAM-SIM package, and if you haven't, you should, then get yourself over there and sign up. There's no better place to fly your new bird!MarkMark "Dark Moment" BeaumontVP Fleet, DC-3 AirwaysTeam Member, MAAM-SIM[a href=http://www.swiremariners.com/cathayhk.html" target="_blank]http://www.paxship.com/maamlogo2.jpg[/a]

Thanks for explaining the mix so clearly, Mark. I emailed Norm this morning and he made me a custom panel. Thanks for your help and thanks to Norm Hancock for creating another new panel for the DC-3 -- MAAM or other. I'm having lots of fun flying MAAM DC-3.BillCYYJhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/130358.jpgNote the Avionics Master Switch and the new RPM & MAN gauges (brighter and clearer)

The only thing you have still not made clear is whether you are using this panel with default or MAAM. From your quote above - "MAAM or other" - it appears that you may be intending to interchange it. I should just point out, from a technical standpoint, that you'll find the MAP and RPM levels are different with the default and MAAM-SIM ladies. Norm's gauges were written for default, I think, so will not work correctly with the MAAM-SIM lady; unless, he has given you a MAAM-SIM specific panel here.This may not bother you as the aircraft will still fly about; but if you are the type who likes to fly to the correct real-world numbers, you'll find some discrepancies if you have things the wrong way around.As Bill R. says, these are not really MAAM-SIM forum issues, but I thought it important to point this difference out to you.MarkMark "Dark Moment" BeaumontVP Fleet, DC-3 AirwaysTeam Member, MAAM-SIM[a href=http://www.swiremariners.com/cathayhk.html" target="_blank]http://www.paxship.com/maamlogo2.jpg[/a]

Yes, I'm using Norm's panel in the FS9 default DC-3. I took a screenshot while parked in front of the Reading Musuem so this caused some confusion I'm sure :-) Thnx for the tips.
