I find it completely amazing that I was trying to get the 750 to work in my PC12, and after scouring the internet, I found your post as the first one in this topic less than a day ago. Amazing. You helped me tremendously. 

I have the PC-12 by Carenado, and your config file had the GTN750 a little to large for me so it was overflowing a little at the top. I changed the GTN_750_1.panels section at the bottom of your config to this to fit my aircraft:

[GTN_750_1.PANELS]
; display window if true.
visible = true 
; show screen only gauge if true.
nobezel = true 
; display type: WINDOW,PANEL2D,PANEL3D,PANELS
frame.type = PANELS
; display position and dimension (left,top,width,height)
frame.rect = 1488,885,528,415
; screen only border size (pixels).
border.size = 0
; screen only border color (#RGB or #RGBA).
border.rgba = #000000
; enable mouse option: NONE,POPUP,TOUCHSCREEN
usemouse = TOUCHSCREEN

Seriously GeeForge, Thank you so much for posting this. Made my day.

Yeah, I know that problem but run the game, try the best fit, close the game, edit the values, open again and check..... Like I spent more than 1 hour to understand the limits, because if I touch (left,top), the window will stretch on width and height, so I have to repeat editing touching all values.

However Thank you

Here are two compatibility mods to get your Reality XP GTNs in the Panthera.
There are two versions attached to this post:

  • GTN 750 + GTN 650 (the autopilot will be accessible by using the pop-up window)
  • GTN 750 only (the Aerobask GTN 750 will remain untouched and fully functional)


DISCLAIMER:
Aerobask has granted authorisation to share the necessary file, but in no way supports this user-created content.
Please do not ask Aerobask to provide any help with this mod.
Use at your own risk.

=========================================
Get the files on the Aerobask forum at x-plane.org
=========================================

Here's the mod in action (Reality XP GTN 750 + GTN 650 in the Pipistrel Panthera):

The installation is straightforward (extract the archive content in your Panthera folder), but please do read the readme.text included in the archive.

There are a few known limitations:

  • The Reality XP GTNs can't be synchronised with the SkyView system. You will need to load the same flight plan in each set of instruments (by using the pop-up window to access the Aerobask GTN).
  • The Aerobask GTNs are still running in the background. However, the performance impact should be marginal.
  • To access our friend Otto (autopilot), you will have to use the Aerobask GTN pop-up window by clicking on the volume knob of the GTN 650 in the virtual cockpit.
  • Click on the volume knobs in the virtual cockpit to toggle the Aerobask GTNs pop-up windows.
    (alternatively, you can use a key/button configured in the Keyboard settings (\aerobask\gtn650 and \aerobask\gtn750))
  • The volume knobs in the virtual cockpit may not respond correctly with the Reality XP GTNs. Use the volume knobs from the 2D windows for the Aerobask GTNs instead.
     

These mods should be compatible with future updates for the Panthera unless something has been changed to the panthera_cockpit.obj. Whatever happens, please don't bother Aerobask if your RXP GTNs are suddenly broken

=========================================
Get the files on the Aerobask forum at x-plane.org
=========================================


I created these mods for my own use but wanted to share them with the community. Feel free to change anything you want in the files and tweak the settings to your liking.

Do remember that the panthera_cockpit.obj is the property of Aerobask.

Thanks to Aerobask for their generosity and for allowing us to fly the Panthera, and to Reality XP for these amazing instruments.

Happy flying!

Here's a quick GTN 750 configuration for the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird.
(for X-Plane v11.10b8+)

0e9d9ba8d18780e388e6786d13884f84.jpg

I had to reconfigure the 3D Panel and increase the texture resolution to get a decent GTN display resolution. That's why you have to download new files.
I've also added a modified canopy glass, so if you don't like the effect, just delete the SR71InteriorGlass.OBJ in the \objects folder (from your newly created aircraft) (you will get an error message during loading though - but the aircraft will work fine).

How to install?
- copy your Lockheed SR-71 folder
- paste and rename the new folder to \Blackbird GTN
- extract the content of the archive in the same root location (ex: …\X-Plane\Aircraft\Laminar Research)
- overwrite the files when asked
- done!

Known limitations
It's a simple mod and there's no HOME/DTO buttons and knobs for the GTN. If you get stuck, you can go into your GTN plugin settings and change the TAWS mode - it will reboot the device.

Happy Mach 3!

 

Update for the SR-71 mod above. (I can't edit the original post, sorry)
Just extract the archive and overwrite the previous files.

Blackbird GTN v1.1 (mod)

You can now use the controls using the mouse:
5c39d292e6fb32e74108f1c444dedf2a.jpg

I'd suggest using a zoomed-in custom view to attempt clicking on those tiny spots ;)
X-Camera is a perfect tool for that.

Here's the GTN-fueled Cirrus Vision

897589ccc89da6b423b664a271977533.jpg

I've been trying to make use of the small displays in the default Cirrus jet.
The GTN 750 wouldn't fit and the dimensions aren't good either for the GTN 650, but with a few compromises it's possible to improve the flight experience (even if the cockpit is not fully realistic).
I also added a glass effect on the windshield and side windows while I was at it ;)
(XP 11.10 beta 8)

Of course, there are a few limitations (the G1000 and the GTNs are not synchronized (FPL, DTO, etc.)), the pop-up windows is required for a few operations.
Not shown in the video, but the three buttons on the side are functional (HOME, DTO, pop-up window).

That little jet is getting much more interesting…

I fixed the remaining animation bug, and polished a few things.

How to install
- Extract the folder from the archive in your XP11 aircraft folder.

It's a separate version, so it won't ask to overwrite your original SF-50.
I changed the icons so you can easily spot the modified aircraft in the user interface.

As explained in a previous post, there are a few limitations due to the way avionics are implemented in X-Plane.
The G1000 can't be synchronised with the GTN, but the GPS heading is handled by the Reality XP GTNs.
The first GTN is the Master device (autopilot and navigation authority).
The second GTN (center touchscreen) is configured with a TAWS-B (as per the real aircraft).
The modified touchscreen allows you to access a few useful functions and displays a few annunciators.

2295801563b14edc3daffecd9493c3b8.jpg

Touch buttons:

  • Cabin door: open/close the cabin door
  • Glass FX: enable/disable the dynamic reflection and subtle dirt effect on the windshield and windows
  • Parking brake: both annunciator and touch control for your parking brake
  • Ice protection: enable/disable every ice protection system - the power consumption can be checked on the G1000 MFD
  • TAWS inhibit: toggle the TAWS audio alerts/bitching Betty - believe me, you will enjoy this one ;) The "inhibited" state is displayed on the GTN #2 screen in the lower left corner - not on the touch button.


Annunciators:

  • Fuel: goes red when the fuel quantity is (very) low
  • Landing Gear: a safe/unsafe state - goes red when the landing gear is in an intermediate stage of operation
  • Ice Detection (not tested): should go red when ice is detected on the plane (probably not icing conditions alone)
  • Engine: you don't want to see this one - red = engine on fire!

I added a separate panel brightness knob so you can accurately adjust the luminosity around the displays. Note that the general panel brightness knob near the main switches will override that brightness setting. So, set your displays brightness first, then adjust the panel brightness if desired.


Happy flying in your improved personal jet!

With help from my friend Vladimir I have created GTN 750 configuration for the X-Aviation MU-2 for X-Plane 11. I cannot understand that with the recent 1.8 release for X-Plane 11 an opportunity to make GTN integration was missed by developer. I have decided not to wait and made this with Vladimir for everyone who enjoys flying MU-2.

KpJuNef.jpg

Installation

- Make a backup of your complete X-Aviation MU-2 folder

- Extract the downloaded zip file to a temporary folder

- Copy 3 files inside x-aviation-mu2 folder to root folder of MU-2 aircraft folder

- Copy 4 files inside x-aviation-mu2\objects folder to objects folder inside of MU-2 aircraft folder

- For all above overwrite any files when asked

Download

Thanks a lot!  Any way to get the buttons working?  At the moment clicking on the unit pops up the default gns.
