    OpenCockpit Plug & Play Radio for Airbus.....Nearly !

    I just received the P&P Airbus radio from OpenCockpits and I have to say it is well made and seems to work very well. But as it is stated, that it is compatible with Project Magenta, is not quite right. It will not auto tune. It would appear that it does not read back any frequency that is entered into FSX and therefore over-rides any numbers entered into FSX.
    I did pose the question to their support team and received the following:

    In this moment, the software only operate like the standard radio, but the new version of SIOC software can control this radio, and can be writed script for all operations.
    Your Opencockpits Support Team

    I presume that means an upgrade of the firmware ?
    So hopefully this will be fixed. Just thought that it worthwhile to let people know that this is the only problem area that I have found, and to be aware of this when they purchase.
    Regards.............Brian W.

    Hi Brian, I noticed this too. I also bought their AB transponder, which is basicly
    B737 transponder. I must also say that I have lost tcas. No other aircrafts in ND?
