Separate Autopilot Window?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to create a separate autopilot window?For example, I'm the type of simmer that enjoys the spot view, taking in the scenery, and what not. I like flying the heavies, and I'm on the decent and approach phase of my flight. I'm enjoying the scenery around me in spot view, and ATC starts throwing out vectors and such. I would like to be able to have the autopilot window open, so I can take care of the changes without having to cycle back into the cockpit. Now, keep in mind that I rarely use my keyboard, and fumbling around for the correct button to just take me there (I know, F9 or F10) would take longer than if I just had the AP right there.

Hi. Yes it is possible. Back a long time ago I asked the same question and Doug Dawson made a gauge that would do just that. He was a real help. In FS9 I wanted the excellent late Bill Morad's ATC gauge to be visible in all windows. It does require placing an icon on the main panel to toggle the effect and editing the panel.cfg to make the autopilot, or any other item, a seperate window. It is aircraft specific so you have to make the changes in each plane that you want the effect. If you are interested PM me and Ill help you configure the plane you want. Once you have the gauge and understand how to do it you can do any other plane the same way. Regards, Bob.
