(A:AVIONICS MASTER SWITCH, bool) if{ (A:NAV1 RADIAL,radians) (A:PLANE HEADING DEGREES GYRO,radians) - } here is one of mine that works. the needle bit map is in the vertical with the needle down. the compass rose has north to the top.it differes from yours in that it is drawn on a dynamic compass, that accounts for the planes heading. it also needs the avionics switch on you could just clip that part off if it does not suit you.since i made this, i have dispenced with the points to, it is supposed to be used to tell the needle the direction of rotation. more useful in a gauge then a compass. i just use + - degrees and a needle that points up. not the style i posted , but this is an older creation, but it does work.
