I tried to import it to FSX.Below are the additions I made for the panel.cfg in FSX.Window08=Mini Panel[Window08]position=7size_mm=1204,424child_3d=1background_color=0,0,0ident=Mini Panelwindow_size= 1.000, 0.471window_pos= 0.000, 0.529gauge03=Lear_45.Light_Switches, 1020,295,172,124gauge04=Lear_45.PFD, 0,58,273,367gauge06=Lear_45.Autopilot, 780,72,420,90gauge07=Lear_45.Radio_Stack, 780,168,216,262gauge08=Lear_45.Gear, 1020,168,172,124gauge11=Lear_45!GPS Display Toggle, 900,30,40gauge12=Lear_45!Compass Display Toggle, 960,30,40gauge13=Lear_45!Throttle Display Toggle, 1020,30,40gauge02=Lear_45.Chronometer, 1070,25,80,45gauge14=Lear_45!Nav GPS Switch, 1162,20,30,50//--------------------------------------------------------I put the the mentioned gauges in the GAUGES folder.

ThanksSorry Abe, I sure don't. I model aircraft and program gauges, so I've just never had the time to experiment with default aircraft... ;)

I had a similar problem in FS9 with my own aircraft trying to get rid of the default mini panel. What works for me is:(Window Titles)Window00=Main PanelWindow01=Mini Panel...(Window01)position=7size_mm=500,125child_3d=1background_color=0,0,0ident=MINIPANELgauge00=Spirit_of_StLouis!spirit_asi,0,0gauge01=Piper_J3Cub!compass,125,0gauge02=DeHavilland_Comet!Altimeter,250,0 gauge03=Spirit_of_StLouis!spirit_rpm,375,0As I remember the line "ident=MINIPANEL" has to use capitals with no spaces.Obviously replace the round brackets with square onesEDIT: Also note that the gauge numbering sequence restarts with gauge00 even though I have a gauge00= in the main panel.

For what it's worth I attach my complete panel.cfg file. It's a while since I made this but I do recall I had problems trying to get rid of the default mini panel. I tried lots of variations before I achieved that.// Panel Configuration file// Hawker Cygnet// Copyright © 2004-2005 Gerry Howard.
