Is it just me or is the Baron OAT gauge hard to read?

Recommended Posts

On my computer the needle is black like the background of the gauge. Is it that way on y,all's? It seems like it should be a contrasting color....like white. Or is it white and something is wrong with my vid setup?

Or did you just notice it wasn't working?I only time I ever recall needing to know the OAT in flying was in converting IAS to TAS. MSFS will do that for you. The rest of the time, I knew it was cold outside. LOL All you had to do was put your bare hand on the glass.

He's not the only one. I like to keep an eye on OAT when flying in real weather. When I want to get out of PA for Florida in the winter, I love looking at the OAT guage after I land. I think it adds a lot to the immersion factor. I love addon aircraft where you can get a reading in Fahrenite.Best Regards, Donald T. :-waveFLYing? It's cool. Trillions of birds and insects can't be wrong.

I used to fly professionally. I got in the habit of keeping up with OAT due to it's effect on aircraft performance and possible icing etc.Old habits are hard to break. lolI don't use the 2d panel. I will check there though. Never thought of checking it to be honest. Now I'm a little embarrassed. I can't find the OAT gauge on the 2d panel. :-hmmm
