RealAir Piston Duke V2 & Weather Radar

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

 

Has anyone ever been able to integrate a Wx Advantage Radar, Roland Radar or the RXP WX500 system into the FSX VC of the B60? If so, could you post the panel.cfg?

 

 

Many thanks / Les Parson

This is how to install radar to RAS Duke V2 without realityXP gps gauges. It is a bit complex as the gps panels of the duke are part of the 3d model. This makes any gauge installed over the gps panels to loose all or some of the click spots, so a popup gauge must be installed in order to control the vc gauge.

Ensure that you did a backup before you edit any file.

 

Here we go:

Open the .../RealAir Duke B60 v2/panel/config folder and edit the options.xml file with a text editor, change the 0 entry below from 0 to 20:

 

<Element>
        <Select>
            <Value>(G:Var1) 0 == if{
20 (>L:dukeRadioConfig,number) }</Value>
        </Select>
    </Element>  

 

This will change the panel configuration to 2 GPS units for Rxp gps.

 

 

Replace the default gps with the gns530 from the freeware Douglas C117v2 by Manfred Jahn, (You can download the C117 from the simouthouse library)

 

 

1)copy FS9Garmin530_Basler.cab from the c117 panel folder and paste to the duke panel folder

2)edit the duke panel cfg as follows:

Korber,

 

Thank you very much! This has been very helpful. By the way, I searched about 30 Dukes for sale and could not find a single one without weather radar.

 

Thanks again / Les Parson

Hi  Korber
this seems to be a fine solution.
I have just restart with fsx after a break of 5 years
I have the b60 v2 without the radar and not the c117 panel
Would the code below be the right way to just install fs9garmin530basler.cab and get a working gps.
If so I will search for the c117 ( most links on many sites are circa 2008 and no longer working)

 

A totally different approach! As the B60 can have 2 GPS panels would it be possible
to install the garmin 1000 pfd and mfd instead ( Baron with Garmin 1000 is my current plane of choice)


1)copy FS9Garmin530_Basler.cab from the c117 panel folder and paste to the duke

panel folder

2)edit the duke panel cfg as follows:

-----------------------------------------------------------------

[Window Titles]
Window00=Main Panel

file=2D_Help.bmp

window_pos= 0.243, 0.280

gauge00=FS9Garmin530_Basler!GNS530_nc1,  0,0

Is there a way to do it for the RXP GNS 530W V2? Thanks!

Yes, it can be done, but I unfortunately can not help as I do not have the RXP gauges.

Read the original thread from the start, maybe someone has found the way
