    Editing existing FSX Panel for LCD display

    Hi all

    Instead of trying to manufacture different LCD screens, I came upon these pics of a guy using 1 lcd screen for instruments, and overlaying a panel.
    This looks like a great idea, and I want to try and replicate that.

    One problem, my Iris Pilatus PC-21 does not have a 2d panel layout, and if you look at the virtual panel, some instruments is hidden behind others.
    I read you can use FS Panel Studio to help with these issues, but it is payware. I do not feel comfortable bying something i am only going to use once.

    Is there any forum member that can help me to edit the panel ?

    Maybe I can help if the gauge are accessible in the aircraft. Alternatively, you could also use external gauge

    There is also more software FSXpand, PEIX, Project Magenta GA and then some.

    FS Panel studio is well worth the buy, you will definitely use it more than once. However, notepad will do everything FSPS does, just without the WYSIWYG feature.

    In fact, if you look at my profile pic, you will notice that I've been doing exactly what you're doing.

    Panel Studio will only work if the gauges are available. In the PMDG 777 for example you can not do anything with PanelStudio because the gauge are integrated into a DLL. Panel Studio does not recognize this gauge.
    But there is a trial version. You can try it so easy.
