GTN750 integration into Orbx Lancair (FSX)

Recommended Posts

After some frustrations, I managed to get the Flight 1 GTN750 integrated into the Orbx Lancair, with great results.
 
Everything is fully functional and the GTN750 integrates perfectly with the Sandel HSI too.  It really brings a new lease of life to the Lancair IV.

As you can see in the pic, this mod is currently using the default King radios, for Com2 and Nav2.   I chose these purely because they are default radios so everyone with FSX has them.

 

If you are confident with editing Panel.cfg files, you can replace these with a better looking option for your Com2 and Nav2 radios.    Be warned though; do not open the Orbx Lancair in FS Panel Studio;  it will corrupt the panel file!     ... edits of these Nav2/Com2 radios would need to be done manually.

 

The GTN750 mod requires that you have the latest (v1.3) version of the Orbx Lancair installed.

If anyone would like the modified Panel.cfg that provides the integration, drop me a PM.

PMs responded - hope you enjoy it guys.

 

As you'll have noticed in the above screenshot, the King Com2 and Nav2 radios look a little "stretched" (the round dials are oval!).   

 

I've now corrected this, but it has required the use of a small home made gauge to provide a 'blanking plate' in between the King radios.  

 

For anyone that wants this version (including the blanking plate gauge) again just drop me a PM.

 

Here is a pic of the new version using the blanking plate (and correctly scaled King radios).

As you might also notice in the above, I have edited the very small labelling on the main switchgear, to make it easier to read.   As you can see, they still need perfecting.   I cannot share that work as it would involve sharing a payware BMP file.

 

Thanks,

Hi Dirk,

 

I've never owned FSX:SE so not sure if the Orbx Lancair installs into it, but I can say that if it does, this mod will definitely work.   The main thing this mod is doing is applying the real-time gauge that Orbx use to 'flatten' the 3D modelling in the VC used for the 430s, and then place the GTN750 in the resulting spot.    So no isses with FSX:SE with any of that, as long as the base aircraft will install into it.

 

PM responsed with link.

Hi Guys,

 

It looks like Bill hasn't been on the Form for a few weeks, I've just bought this aircraft and really want to get the GTN750 fitted. Could anybody send me the Modified files?
 

Thanks in advance.

Hi Bill

 

Sent you a PM for your latest files. Can you supply both for FSX and P3D v3

 

Very nice, it looks so smart in the Lancair cockpit. I look forward to your fix / update

I've replied to Andrew above;  unfortunately I could not get a response from the author of a freeware Comm/Nav 2 gauge that was later used, in order to distribute it with the panel mod.

 

Worse, I had to do a OS reinstall a few weeks ago and lost that gauge.  So I'm afaid for now, I can only give out the version as seen above - that uses the default King Air Comm/Nav 2 gauge.

Hi all,

 

Just to say - unfortunately I had a Hard Drive and MoBo failure a couple of months ago (ended up just buying a whole new rig). Unfortunately I lost everything on the old PC - including this, and all other mods. :diablo:

 

Hopefully one of the other folks who I sent the mod to can send @pchamney a copy of the mod,

Just discovered this, apparently Bill lost this GREAT tweak.  Does anyone else have it and please send it to me?  Both the GTN750 and the Orbx Lancair are favorites and this would be incredibly wonderful.

Hi Clem,

 

The user "DJJose" was kind enough to send the mod back to me!  I haven't had a chance to upload it to Dropbox (in order to share it) yet but if you drop him a PM, hopefully he'd share it with you too.

 

Bill.

Hi Bill, the user parachutem sent me the file and I've successfully installed it.

The GTN750 works right with the ORBX Lancair but there are 3 not serious issues:

- COM2/NAV2 are not operative and have "oval" knobs;

- when in POP-UP mode the GTN750 in the panel remains alight but becomes blurred;

- the GTN750's map can be panned only in POP-UP mode.

Just for your information

Regards

Clem
