Help with Default B737-800 Panel

Recommended Posts

Hello AllI really don't understand panel design so I was told by a few of my FS connections that this is the place to ask for help.What I want to do if possable is to make 2 gauges on the default B737-800 2d panel so that I can "Undock"them into windows and move them to another monitor so I can control them with a "Mouse Click Program" I am looking for the "EFIS" part of the auto pilot and if possable the "Auto Brake"Any advise here will be a great help..Is this possible?ThanksRay

Hi RayThe mod should not be a problem, but do you mean the EICAS (engine parameters) gauge of the main panel, as for the auto brake control other than a new panel bitmap, I cant really see that being a big problem.Let me know which, and I will try the modification out.Jim Hodkinson
