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

frame.rect = 460,608,530,430

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!

I've modified the Carenado Pilatus PC-12 and integrated the GTN 750 in the VC:

Carenado has given me permission to share this mod, you can download the necessary files with a short PDF instruction readme from here:
