    Adding landing Gear lights to P5 Overhead

    This adds the 3 landing Gear lights to the P5 Overhead

    Add this to the [elements] section

    textlightbox RIGHT%GEAR,-0.3,125.1,.6,g,RightGear, 6 , 3
    textlightbox NOSE%GEAR,-6.9,134.5, .6 , g ,NoseGear, 6 , 3
    textlightbox LEFT%GEAR,-14.0,125.1, .6 , g ,LeftGear, 6 , 3



    Add this to the [logics] section

    NoseGear = (fsNoseGearPos > 16000) and (batt1 = 1)
    LeftGear = (fsLeftGearPos > 16000) and (batt1 = 1)
    RightGear = (fsRightGearPos > 16000) and (batt1 = 1)

    Add The following FS Offsets to the sysvar.txt file

    0BEC 4 fsNoseGearPos // 0=full up, 16383=full down
    0BF0 4 fsRightGearPos // 0=full up, 16383=full down
    0BF4 4 fsLeftGearPos // 0=full up, 16383=full down

    LOL!!
    You know i was thinking, (UH OH) using phidgets, it should be easy to
    program in a "master" light test button. That way it eliminates alot of
    extra wiring.

    Re: Adding landing Gear lights to P5 Overhead

    Love it when these things are done. It's the bread and butter of
    pmSystems.

    I can also add some special code that generates properly done gear
    indicators as I have done for the standalone and are inserted like the
    special gauges in the overhead.

    Ciao

    Just finished up the Engine / APU Pneumatics so the pressure follows
    the N1 RPM, Just need an random number to generate some variance in
    PSI .

    Because the aircraft is sitting in the hanger I added the Ground Air
    connection so that the system has pressure without the need for a APU
    or Engine to be running. So the "Hanger" becomes another user option.
