Hello Fellow Simbuilders,

I have just received my FDS Forward and Aft over head panels... very nice indeed!!!

I was wondering what other sim builders were using for overhead gauges?

I would love to use the Simworld ones if they fitted...

Cheers

I used Flight Illusion Gauges which I designed and 3D printed new bezels for so that they fit into the overheads.

Flight Illusion Gauges are the Go To Gauge. I've installed Yaw Damper on MIP, Overhead Pressure & Climb Gauges, Cabin Temp Gauge. Some are straight drop in others need "Mods". But Sim-Avionics v1.7 works great with the gauges I have installed. Looking forward to installing some more. Hopefully the Flight Illusions MIP Clocks will be included in Sim Avionics v1.8

Hi Pat,

I'm using the gauges as well. How did you integrate them in Sim-A.
I still use the controller software from FI. Or is this still the way to go?

SYSBoard Controller in Sim-Avionics has a Flight Illusion Tab for the gauges.

I’ve finished installing all of the Flight Illusion B737 gauges in the Overhead, FLAPS & Yaw Damper on the MIP. The O.H. Fuel Temp was difficult. The F.I. Gauge has a capacitor that has to be unsoldered and flipped over to the top of the PCB. PLUS the FDS OH X-Crossfeed Open Light that butts up against the bottom of the F.I. gauge is problematic. I had to notch a 1/8” cut into the bottom of a new gauge to make it fit. It would be helpful if FDS & Flight Illusion could resolve this fit problem. Most of the Flight Illusion Gauges fit in the Overhead & MIP with little work but a few gauges were real head-scratchers. On a brighter note it’s nice that Mark at Sim-Avionics has integrated the Flight Illusion gauges into v1.7.... I look forward to the CO & FO Clocks working in Sim Avionics.
