Couple of notes about this module after the quick inspection:1. This module still need to be tested (should work, but there could be some quirks about it)2. Module is pretty simple at the moment, it doesn't use the advantages of MCP display (AP syncs though)3. Module is based on mouse macros which is not the best way of doing things (and may have some unexpected quirks too)Anyway, Helge, congratulations with the first module! :(

Not sure what you mean Artem. All displays work (SPD, HDG, ALT plus VS and CRS when changed).I haven't found any buttons not working except for TERR (not supported by iFly 737) and HDGHLD plus CMDC which are not found on the 737.There are a few buttons on the 737 that I did not find room for in on the MCP Combo: C/O (switch to and from MACH), Bank angle selector, RADIO/BARO on EFIS, IN/HPa on EFIS, FO course dial and FD.Currently I put Fire warn reset and Master Warn reset plus autobrake setting on the user buttons in the radio part. I am not sure that these are the best choices, but that's easily changed.

Helge, SPD, HDG, ALT plus VS and CRS is not the only info that could be displayed :-)It's not a criticism in any case. Just the notice, that there is some space for further enhancements.Look inside JS41 module and search for DspShow calls to see what I mean.

Russians say that man get used to the good things quickly... Meaning that after you got used, you will miss all those "bells and whistles" if you loose them :(
EFIS:
  • Toggle S/Ws for VOR1,2/ADF1,2.
  • Knob S/Ws for MINS, BARO, CTR ; ND mode selector and TFC.
  • Push buttons for FPV, MTR, WXR, NAVAID, WPT, ARPT, DATA

All functions for that are there. Cannot test them myself because don't own the iFly, but it seems that everything is prepared for your pleasure. :(
