    Re: Which software do you use or plan to use on your "home cockpit"?

    I am building a Learjet 45 and I'm using P8R for my ND, Efis, Eicas A&B & FMC and FreeFD for my PFD.
    For the Standby Altimeter, ADI, ASI and the Crew warning panel and RMU's I have written my own software ( available to download ).

    This gives me everything I need for Zero cost

    I use FSXpand for several reasons. I am on a fixed budget, and rankly can't afford the outragous cost of PM. I have had NO trouble with FXpand, and they are consistantly improving their product, and it looks good. As a new simmer I am entirely satified with their product. Thanks Dave McKee

    Strange that in the avionics poll ***767 Level-d*** is NOT mentioned.

    Only few people did realise that it *IS IN FACT* a full avionics suite !
    But because it's so cheap, it seems not to be recognized.....

    There is an active 767 building community using this "suite".

    If you think another software package should be on list, do as Hessel did, post it. Perhaps will do another Poll in the future with your recommended items.

    FsXpand is flexible to use and has a nice price.
    PM is currently too expensive for what the software is offering.
    There are many companies now offering the same functionality quality for a fraction of the PM.

    Cheers

    PS: Others : VasFMC, FreeFD, and stuff below from Tasking

    I noticed 26 say others, certainly would like to know what those others would be.

    For people on a tighter budget, I think vasFMC is a great piece of software. It definitely does not have all the functionality that others may have, but for me it is sufficient and since it is free, I cannot complain at all.

    I would be one of those "others"

    I am intending to write the whole suite of software myself. I have to admit that I am close to having 10 thumbs (well, maybe not quite 10, but certainly 9.7) when it comes to constructing stuff myself. I am hoping to make up for that by writing the software myself

    Re: Which software do you use or plan to use on your "home cockpit"?

    Well I am also one of the "others" and just use FS gauges customised with FS Panel Studio. No it can't be run across a network and therefore all has to run via 1 PC but the advantages it offers in cost and functionality is huge. And with the current state of PC hardware today its no great drain to run it all off one. It also allows me to fly several different craft in my sim with ease. If I were building a dedicated platform however I would go down the route of Simavionics or the like.
