Has anyone created an alternate Airspeed Indicator for the DR400 Robin - one that reads Knots? That would be a nice addition.

  • Title says it all. Sure would be nice to read knots instead of km/h. I am about to catch on to the dial reading from the bottom rather than from the top. ;) I realize the inner scale is already Knots - What I am asking is to reverse the two scales and make Knots the large outer scale and km/h the inner scale.


    No real biggie - I just use the 9 o'clock needle position as 80 knots and 12 o'clock as 135 knots. Low end is by sound and AOA.

  • Yes I did, from a real-life DR400 ASI.


    Here's the replacement texture

    You'll need to adapt the tmd file as follows in the airspeed indicator section

    Or you can use my own tmd file, adding following mods:

    1) ASI needle matches kt ASI

    2) display pilot in cockpit

    3) slightly move pilot POV


    Enjoy !
