Xplane 11 and FDS FDW Overhead Is Done

Post by Michael_B767_ATP »

Hi Everyone,

Just a heads up... The forward overhead panel is now working with xplane 11 and the zibo.

Up next, the aft overhead. I'll get a video up sometime tomorrow.

:D :D :D

Awesome work. Looking forward to seeing your video.

Since this is all with the Zibo model, what would be the chance that I could get it working with a 737MAX build?

Hi,

FDStoXP controls the FDS hardware by using X-Plane 11 custom datarefs.

It does not care which aircraft X-Plane is using.

You simply create an XLUA script to connect the planes custom datarefs & commands to the FDStoXP custom datarefs.

Therefore it is possible to connect FDS hardware to any X-Plane aircraft that provides the necessary datarefs & commands.

So for instance you could write scripts to connect to the EADT x737 instead of the zibo mod.
