Over the captain's shoulder

In lieu of any significant post, this is simply another update photo of the C90 simulator currently being built in our workshop.

Additional photos are available here and I'll be upping more over the next few days until I've used 100% of our monthly Flickr allowance.

General Update

As you might've noticed, this blog has been sadly lacking in new content for the past few months, although this isn't because I've not been busy - just the opposite in fact! The ATR has even needed to be put to one side for a while, as our new project involves the construction of a complete King Air C90 simulator.

The entire process has been documented in detail and I plan (as time permits!) to write some dedicated posts relating to different sections of the build. In the mean time however, here are a couple of photos showing the progress so far ...

Free Demo Version of Monitor FSUIPC Data

Now available for free download is a demo version of our Monitor FSUIPC Data program, available through Mediafire via the link below.

Note: Link has been updated as a new version (Windows 7 and/or 64-bit compatible) has just been released ...

Monitor FSUIPC Data (Demo Version)

The ZIP file contains a file called Monitor FSUIPC Data Demo Setup.msi which when double-clicked will begin the set-up process. We recommend that you let the program install itself automatically to the destination it chooses, as if you decide to purchase the Full Version later on it will be installed directly over top of this demo. This will also make it easier to apply any future updates that are made to the program (which will be made available free to all registered users of the Full Version)

The list of available offsets in the demo version above (from which you can view data) is limited to the following:

- Aileron Trim
- Alternator Switch
- Altitude of Aircraft
- AP Vertical Speed Hold
- AP Vertical Speed Value (ft/min)
- Bank
- Engine 1 Fuel Pressure
- Flaps Control
- Fuel Centre Tank 1 Level (%)
- Gear Control
- Lights - Cabin

No registration is required.
There is no facility to add your own 'Custom' offsets in the demo version.
