Hi Everyone,

Well, I just put the finishing touches on the Flightdeck Solutions to X-Plane11 installation booklet.

If there are any updates, I'll let you know right here FDS.

Here is the link to the booklet.

Booklet updated to 1.0.2. I added a link to the jetmaxtq script (for those using a jetmax throttle quad) and cleared up a few items.

I'm in the process of adding information for getting the external lights working throughout the network.

I have two trying out the instructions, looks like it's good up to step 10 now. I just had to clear up the zibo 737ng install and provide an example.

Thank you Michael. I know there was a ton of long, hard work that went into this.

Hi George,

Yeah, it took a bit of work to put it all together. I just hope it helps others looking to make the jump to X-Plane.

I know of two so far that made the switch and didn't need any outside help from me.

The last items to place in the booklet would be for outside gauges like Flight Illusions and what-not. Since I don't have any of these gauges, I'm hoping someone who is all setup within Xplane11 can send me the details on how it was done so I can include them in the manual.

Hi Everyone,

I'm working on the installation instructions for setting up weather radar. I hope to have that online later today.

Hi Everyone,

The booklet has been updated to include adding weather radar over a network as well as exterior lighting.

Also included some trouble shooting tips for those that don't have a full flight deck and are having switch/indicator issues.

Hi Everyone,

All that is missing from the booklet (minus any remaining errors) are the installation of Flight illusion gauges.

I don't have/own any of these gauges so there is no way for me to figure out how they install. I do know they work because I know a couple of users that use F/I hardware.

If get my hands on this info, I'll add it to the booklet.

For those looking to make the jump, I hope you find this helpful.

On behalf of the forum, I want to say THANK YOU Michael for taking the time to write and keep the guide updated. It means a lot for us looking to make the transition but lack the experience to do so without loads of trial and error.

Hi Brad,

Thanks! I just hope I made it clear enough for everyone to figure out without needing a ton of help.
