Aldrei,I used that panel myself a while back and loved it except I nearly drove myself crazy with minimizing the sim every 10 seconds so I could look something up in that gargantuan readme file. I finally made myself a copy of it in html format that I could read from the kneeboard in flight. It has something like 30 links at the top of the page that will quickly scroll you to any particular section of the readme.Here's a link, hope you can get some use out of it. There's a readme in the .zip that tells you how to install it as a kneeboard reference page.http://www.cat-tamer.com/flightsim/downloa...CS_knee_ref.zipJim
