Add radio and transponder to Vertigo Studios PT17 Stearman

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

 

Is there a way to add a transponder and radio to an aircraft that does not 

have it.  (As a pop up).

 

Want to add a transponder and radio to Vertigo Studios PT17 Stearman.

This will allow me to practice VFR/ATC communication with VoxATC6.

 

Thanks,

B.

Do you have a radio/transponder in mind?  Would a radio stack from a default aircraft work?  Would an example

 

of adding a radio stack to, say, something like the piper cub, showing how the panel.cfg file needs to be edited be

 

useful?

Hello Charliearon,

 

Any generic radio stack and transponder is fine as long as it works.  Default is fine.

Obviously it will be a pop up (i.e. shift +4 or 5 shows radio or transponder).

Simply something that adds the functionality to the aircraft.

 

Thank you!

B.

I borrowed the radio stack from a POSKY 737.  I drew out an arrow where the changes were made. The

 

addition was [window06].  Shift+7 to make it pop up.

Thanks again!

 

I was able to add the default C172 radio stack to the Stearman by following along with what you did for the cub.

Changed it a bit to take out the autopilot.   Worked great last night.  Might post a video in a while.

Below is the Code I added, although VOXATC then goes in an adds some windows too.
