Normal

The camera controls that you have configured will remain unchanged.

Flight information

Show

Displays the virtual cockpit at the top of the screen. This mini display can be useful if you prefer flying from an outside view. Note - The flight information strip can be toggled on and off by a key or button of your choosing from within the controller configuration settings page.

1. Wind
Shows the current windspeed and direction with respect to the aircraft’s orientation. This example shows a very weak wind from the left.

2. Flaps Indicator
Shows the position of your flaps in degrees

3. Power Indicator
Shows the actual engine output percentage

4. Heading Indicator
Shows the current heading in degrees. The magenta trend indicator bar shows what the heading will be in 6 seconds at the current rate of turn. For a standard turn rate of 180 degrees per minute, the trend indicator has a length equivalent to 18 degrees. The heading bug (the magenta symbol above the ‘W’ in this example) and magenta number to the left are displayed if a heading for autopilot operation is selected

5. Airspeed Indicator
Shows the IAS (indicated airspeed) in knots. The magenta trend indicator shows what the airspeed will be in 6 seconds. The color of the tape shows the airspeeds for the current aircraft:

  • green represents normal range
  • white representsairspeed range with flaps extended
  • yellow representsoperation in smooth air without abrupt control inputs
  • red represents below stall speed at the low end

above velocity and never exceeds (‘red line’) at the high end The ground speed is displayed at the bottom. The target speed for autopilot operation will be displayed at the top as well as the magenta speed bug if selected.

6. Attitude Indicator
Shows the roll and pitch attitude of the aicraft with respect to the earth (artificial horizon).

7. Altimeter
Shows the current altitude above sea level in feet. Again, the magenta trend indicator shows what the altitude will be in 6 seconds at the current rate of climb. A bar having a length equivalent to 100 ft therefore indicates a rate of climb of 1000 ft/min. The height above ground is shown at the bottom. If a target altitude is selected, this will be displayed in magenta at the top and the altitude bug will be shown.

9. Vertical Speed Indicator (VSI)
Displays the current rate of climb or descent in feet per minute. For autopilot operation, the target rate of climb is shown at the top.

10. Nearest Airports
Shows the distance of and direction to the two nearests airports. The distances are displayed in nautical miles. The directions are shown with respect to the current heading. In this example, the nearest airport is at the 4 o’clock position at a distance of 6.6 nm. The second airport is right behind at a distance of 13 nm.

11. Replay Function
Allows for you to replay your previous flight.

Approach guides

When you set up a flight plan with a departure and destination airport selected, you can turn on approach guides by choosing active or all. The approach guides are green “follow me” boxes that get you to your destination by following them.

Landmarks

Toggles (show/hide) the various names of famous locations, cities, or towns in a text overlay. Note - This toggle can be set to a key or button for quick on/off access.

Transparency of Control Elements

This slider lets you choose the transparency level of overlays such as your map. The higher the setting, the more transparent the overlay.
