ECL DISPLAY

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

I am using the fantastic B777-300

 

When viewing the ECL display I find it very awkward that the various settings for the display are are positioned far over on the right of the MCP display. At the moment I do not use Track IR which will probably make viewing of the ECL display easier The only way I can think of viewing the ECL settings is bring up the EFIS MCP RIGHT panel

 

Is it possible to change the position of the ECL display?

Is there an easier way to view the ECL screen ECL settings?

 

Should I get "Track IR" even with only one monitor

 

Any advice most welcome

Hi again

 

I have solved my problem

 

silly me...I did not realise that the ECL display panel pops out

 

I would like to try "Track IR" but so expensive and cannot make up my mind if it any use with a single monitor or is it more suited to dual monitors

I don't have Track IR but I use the mouse/spacebar method and it works pretty well. It takes awhile to get used to but its less expensive!

Hi,

 

To me it doesn't matter how many monitors you have, it's more of a matter of personal preferences.

I have two monitors (one for windowed fsx, the other one for other programs and charts). I'm using the track IR and I could not image flying without it anymore since I have started flying in VC. It gets the simulation more immersive as you don't have to care anymore about the view control, it just follows your head.

Once you get used to it, you can quickly look at a panel to flip a switch or check for data, or look around for the situation awareness while your hands are on the yoke.

I find it definitely more responsive and handy than having to control the view with the mouse or joystick POV.

TrackIR will be the second best investment for flight simulation behind a good set of controls. It is incredible and once you start flying, you won't be able to without. I use a single monitor and its great.
