A2A 250 Comanche RXP GNS 430/530

Recommended Posts

A2A 250 Comanche RXP GNS 430/530
A2A 250 Comanche configuration for the GNS 430/530.
Also includes configuration for the GTN 650/750. This setup allows the use of the Comanche 250 Aircraft Configurator_P3D app.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/r1drhrv9opxg803/A2A_250_Comanche_RXP_GTN_GNS430530.zip?dl=0

First things first. BACKUP the following files in the A2A_Piper_PA24_250_Comanche panel folder.

panel_default.cfg
panel_F1_650.cfg
panel_F1_750.cfg
panel_F1_dual.cfg
panel_MINDSTAR_430.cfg
panel_MINDSTAR_530.cfg
panel_MINDSTAR_dual.cfg

Important:
Regarding the panel_default.cfg file (if you DO NOT own the RXP GNS430 do not copy this file). This file provided in the package will install the RXP GPS400 and replace the default A2A GPS400. Otherwise if you own the GNS430 copy it to the panel folder.

The RXP GPS400 is included with the GNS430.

If you don't own all the RXP gauges, still install all .cfg files this way if you decide to purchase additional RXP gauges the above files will be in place and ready to go.

Copy (Extract) the contents of this package to the \A2A\SimObjects\Airplanes\ folder.

You should now have the above .cfg files in the A2A_Piper_PA24_250_Comanche panel folder, and 2 files; RealityXP.GNS.ini and RealityXP.GTN.ini in the main \A2A_Piper_PA24_250_Comanche folder. These last 2 files are necessary for the popup gauges to work properly.

You may now use the Comanche 250 Aircraft Configurator_P3D app to install the gauge of your choice.

For the RXP GTN 650/750 select the F1 650, 750, or both.
For the RXP GNS 430/530 select the MS 430, 530, or both.
As noted above if you own the GNS430 you can select default to install the GPS400.

Where were you when I was trying to figure this one out?  LOL!  I eventually got it done, but should have just been patient waiting for you!  Would have been much easier!  +++

Hi Bill

As Frank says - thanks for doing this! Just a head-up: I think you have included instructions here for the C182 as the Comanche doesn't offer dual MS installs in the a2a configurator (at least mine doesn't!)

 

Cheers

Paul

**Update**
New download link and instructions updated. The Comanche doesn't include a dual units setup.

A2A 250 Comanche configuration for the GNS 430/530.
Also includes configuration for the GTN 650/750. This setup allows the use of the Comanche 250 Aircraft Configurator_P3D app.

First things first. BACKUP the 5 panel files in the A2A_Piper_PA24_250_Comanche panel folder. Not the panel.cfg.

1 panel_default.cfg and 4 panel_*.cfg files.

"The RXP GPS400 is included with the GNS430."

While this a little off topic, I hoped you might be able to assist. I really wanted to use the RXP GPS 400 in lieu of the GNS 430 in order to utilize the A2A Norco Comm/NAV 1 & 2 systems. Unfortunately, the GPS 400 does not include CDI for GPS/NAV switch-over (this includes the real-world unit). The A2A GPS/NAV switch only works with the default A2A GPS (I think). In short, I've been unable so far to find a solution to alternate between GPS/NAV as I believe at least part of the aircraft was designed outside of the basic FSX/P3D model. 

If you are aware of a solution, I would be very appreciative.

Hi, you might want to explore configuring a keyboard shortcut to execute this standard NAV/GPS command?

Otherwise, you might want to reuse another stock aircraft NAV/GPS switch and put it on the panel someplace?

I'm guessing it wouldn't be hard to write a xml gauge that makes their switch swap nav/gps.  Otherwise I think the default key command is x

Thanks for the responses. Since at least some of the A2A aircraft code (s) are written outside the standard FSX/P3D architecture (I think), I'll ask for more info from A2A.
