NavStax has developed a suite of avionics gauge addons for release in spring 2018. The units are designed to be easy for developers to integrate into their aircraft, and we supply a free SDK that includes high definition frame textures and 3D models for all of our product range.
The NavStaX KingNav Radio Navigation Suite consists of 6 highly accurate and carefully replicated navigation and communication units for use as individual 3D or 2D gauges. All units feature advanced programming and custom functionality to closely match their real life counterparts, as well as detailed animation and lifelike textures.
KingNav includes the following gauges, in one package, fully compatible with Flight Simulator X and Prepar3D:
KMA 30 Audio Panel
The KingNav KMA 30 Audio Panel is an accurate replacement audio panel which closely recreates the original, adding volume control and highly accurate functionality throughout. (Note: Bluetooth emulation and music playback are unavailable.)
KR 165A NAV/COMM
The KX 165A combined Navigation/Communication radio recreates the functionality of the actual unit, complete with programmable comm channels and multiple operating modes including CDI, Bearing, and Radial VOR functionality.
KX 165 NAV/COMM
The KX 165 combined Navigation/Communication radio recreates the specifications of the real radio, with nav/comm frequency pre-select and multiple operating modes including Radial VOR functionality
KN 62A DME
The KN 62A Distance Measuring Equipment features greatly expanded replication of the real life device, with frequency selection being able to be tuned directly or remotely through a NAV receiver, emulating a functional DME Hold Mode.
KR 87 ADF
The KR 87 Automatic Direction Finder features by-the-book functionality, with a flip-flop frequency display that allows you to switch between pre-selected standby and active frequencies with the touch of a button, as well as integrated flight and stopwatch timers.
KT 74 Transponder
The KT 74 is a fully featured mode S transponder which includes advanced functionality such as a stopwatch and timer, altitude monitor, flight ID entry and display, and an emulated ADS-B monitor with latitude and longitude display.
Why did you develop this suite?
We saw a void in the aftermarket addons market for this type of higher end nav unit. We've aimed it at flyers who wish to use non-GTN methods for getting to and from places. Most real life AC don't have the higher end stuff as it's VERY expensive.
How do you use it with standard and add on airplanes in FS X and P3D?
The KingNav will work as a 2D popup in any FSX / P3D aircraft. We hope that more devs will come on board to allow us to integrate our stacks in their 3D virtual cockpits.
What current aircraft have the KingNav fully integrated in the 3D VC
So far only the MilViz 310R. Since we have made 3d integration so easy for a developer, we hope more will come on board in the near future.
