New Taxispeed gauge available

Recommended Posts

A just released Taxispeed gauge rcbts-10.zip by Rob Barendregt is available here in the library. From the readme;This archive contains an XML gauge that helps youto control the groundspeed of your aircraft whiletaxiing, and can be added to any FS2K2 aircraft panel.However, simple installation and full functionalityrequires that you have my Pushback gauge alreadyinstalled (file: RCBpb-20.zip).Features: adjustable taxispeed (3 - 40 knots), actualspeed indication and clicksound.Both gauges work great and the taxi speed gauge keeps the F1 Meridian's speed stable even with the condition lever set to the run position.K

Excellent gauge array !!I applaud the original developers of the pushback gauge, as it has become a utility that most of us 'must have'.Now, Rob Barendregt has advanced the evolution of this to an incredibly flexible tool for manuevering on the ground.Combine his Pushback, Taxispeed and Arming switches on your panels. You can even shift taxispeeds on the roll...Thanks Rob,.. great utility.Cheers,Bob

This is a very useful gauge, especially if you are using Flight Deck Companion. It keeps the co-pilot from telling you to slow down ;)Thanks, Rob

Here's an easy way to position your pushback gauge icon. While in FS2002 I took a screenshot of the panel I wanted to add the gauge to. Then I pasted it into Paint Shop Pro and resized it into the resolution I use in FS2002 (1152 X 864). Next I used the arrow tool to find the exact position where I wanted to place the icon. Took all of the guesswork out of it. Hope this will help others like me who can't figure out how to place the icon without a little help.
