the above package already contains a pre-configured setting for the VRI MCP Combo. As I stated above, we are currently not able to make the AP displays work (Radios are working);Now, you have your current flight status shown instead of AP settings. The whole other MCP knobs and buttons work already...

I just heard from Vrinsight via email,..... they have told me that they are making a profile so that we can use the MCP-Combo with the NGX, it will be out in a week or so. Please email them to support the need that this profile be created for MCP-Combo and other vrinsight products. John

Hi Guenter, Just terminated my flight with your MCP Combo configuration. In general everything is working fine but ....is it possible to add the function STD QNH on the BARO rotary button (PUSH function) it should be more comfortable ? By the way thanks once more Marc

Rename /linda-cfg/aircrafts/PMDG 737NGX/config-mcp.lua.def to -> config-mcp.lua if you want to use Guenter's prdefined assignments. That's recommended for those making the first/clean install of this module. Otherewise use your own assignmens config.

Is there support for the PFC 737NG throttle quadrant? I have their Jet Console and I can't get the spoilers, flaps or landing gear to operate from the console in the PMDG 737 NG. The Console works on all other planes. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. This is the first I have heard of Linda so I don't know anything about it but will download and see what happens. Thanks for you effort, Tom

not the complete right way, but ok ;-)Maybe have first a look into the manual or the introduction here on this site and note that LINDA does NOT support or manage any axes!Just knobs and buttons ...
