Flight1 GNS

Recommended Posts

Has anyone been able to install the new Flight1 GNS 530 into the PC12? I would install the GTN 750 but I'm not a big fan of it being overlapped on the 530 screens and the Carenado 530 is just awful.

 

EDIT:

Looks like someone has already been working on it. Hopefully the issues will get fixed soon.

I don't have the PC12. However, I assume that the product should come with an RXP plug-in installer.
In this case, it should be relatively easy to replace it with the Flight1 gauge, if you send me the panel.cfg file.

I have installed it as a test, and it looks and works fine.

 

To use the knobs, you have pop up the 2d window, however.

I have no issue using the 2D Popup, that is what I normally do anyway. I'll give it a try.

It works but it makes my cockpit transparent. I can see the gauges but everything else is transparent.

That is a Carenado copy protection issue..

 

Have you eliminated any other Carenado gauges?

 

Otherwise, just change one gauge at a time.. you'll see where the problem occurs.

Haven't eliminated any other gauges. Guess the [Vcockpit01] was causing the issue, did some playing around and got it working perfect. Thanks for all the help!

Hi everybody,

I have tried to insert a GTN650 into the original gauge of the PC12, but I seems that is not possible to click at the intenal of this gauge, only at the border.

Is normal or I am wrong something ?

bye

A GTN650 really does not fit, and the model has a clickspot to pop up the GNS430 on the screen, so this is indeed "normal" :wink:

sure,

infact I have disabled the popup gps gauge in the vcockpit01 (gauge ToggleCAR530), and I have used the gtn650 gauge with the coordinates for insert exactly it into the area of the original carenado gps, but I have saw that not only with the pc12 but also with other carenado planes (like t210 for example) I can't to use the button of the gtn650 if I click into the aera of the original gps.

I don't know if is a protected by carenado or instead is necessary other modification in the panel.cfg

I believe it is coded inside the interior model file.
