FS2004 Panels


Constellation Panel Here's a Connie panel from Hans-Joerg Naegele,Wolfram Beckert, Howard Sodja, and Jan Visser, and just look at it!  It includes a Flight Engineer's panel too.  Comes with all new XML gauges and a detailed HTML flight manual. Looking good - thanks!  Last updated on 4/9/04.

Martin 4-0-4 Panel Ryan Miller has produced this panel from an actual photograph of a 404's cockpit! Thanks a lot Ryan! Last updated on 6/5/06.

Boeing B314 Panel Here is a great panel for the B-314 flying boat from Ken Mitchell. Use it with FSAviator's flight dynamics and Mike Stone's plane, both available from the B-314 page.


FS2002/FS2004 Panels


  DC-4 PanelHere's a DC-4 panel with many features of the DC-6 panel above!  Since the DC-4 didn't have them, the electric prop box, prop reverse, and ADI switches have been deleted (use the blue knobs to control prop pitch).  The FE's Notepad has also been deleted, since I have no flight info for the DC-4.  This is part of the Western DC-4 package (plane/panel/sound).  Last modified on 5/5/03.  Requires aircraft with true FS2004/FS2002 flight dynamics (released 3/03 or later).  If downloaded before 5/5/03 and FS crashes using this panel download and install this plane again.  If it still crashes remove the electrical system with this fix.


FS2002 Panels


  DC-6 Panel version 6.  It's finally here!  Most of the things that made the version 5 panel great for FS2000 is now available for FS2002.  Make sure to read the HTML panel manual in the DOCS folder.  This panel is made especially for the new FS2002 flight dynamics from FSAviator, and won't work with earlier flight models.  Last modified on 5/5/03.  Requires aircraft with true FS2002 flight dynamics (released 3/03 or later).  If downloaded before 3/17/03 download this patch (gives "ding" sound with seat belt sign).  If downloaded before 4/7/03 download this update (gives gauges in the new GMAX DC Virtual Cockpits). If it still crashes remove the electrical system with this fix.

  Convair 340 Panel v6.  This panel's beautiful bitmap was created by Alan Jennings and Greg Pepper, and is made especially for Greg's new GMAX ConvairLiners.  I've done much of the gauge programming and Francois Ouellette, Greg Pepper, and Alan Jennings have done many of the gauge bitmaps.  I love flying this panel!  Make sure to read the HTML panel manual in the DOCS folder for all the details.  Last modified on 5/5/03.  If downloaded before 5/5/03 and FS crashes using this panel download this fix.  If it still crashes remove the electrical system with this fix.

Convair 240 Panel v6 (same as the 340 panel but adapted for the 240's right hand door).  This 240 panel requires the CV-340 panel to be installed first! (to provide gauges and sounds).  Last modified on 5/5/03.  Requires aircraft with true FS2002 flight dynamics (released 3/03 or later).  If downloaded before 3/17/03 download this patch (gives "ding" sound with seat belt sign).  If downloaded before 5/5/03 and FS crashes using this panel download and install this panel again, and also download and install the CV-340 fix.  If it still crashes remove the electrical system with this fix.

  DC-7 Panel version 6And here's the new DC-7 panel!  All of the great features of the DC-6 panel, customized for the DC-7/DC-7B/DC-7C!  Make sure to read the HTML panel manual in the DOCS folder.  This panel is made especially for the new FS2002 flight dynamics from FSAviator, and won't work with earlier flight models.  Now has been modified to include VC gauges and keyboard controlled wing views when used with the GMAX DC-7's.  Last modified on 7/7/03.  Requires aircraft with true FS2002 flight dynamics (released 3/03 or later).  If downloaded before 5/5/03 and FS crashes using this panel download this fix.  If it still crashes remove the electrical system with this fix.

  Photorealistic DC-3 Panel.  James Underwood has created this DC-3 panel, and it's a beauty!  It uses gauges from FS2002 Pro, so it is not for users of the Standard version.  It also includes views out the cockpit, including wing and engine views.  Thanks James!  Last updated on 1/19/03.

  Constellation Panel.   Here's a Connie panel from Hans-Joerg Naegele and Jan Visser, and just look at it!  It includes a Flight Engineer's panel too.  Looking good - thanks!  Last updated on 5/5/03. Now download this update to version 1.1! Even includes new flight dynamics to go along with the panel. Last updated on 7/14/03.

Lockheed L-188 Electra Panel.  Kevin Trinkle has produced this beautiful Electra panel, complete with Kevin's realistic gauges, and a working engine start gauge (with sound!).  Thanks, Kevin!  Now version 6!  Last updated on 6/2/03.  A panel update is included for the FSAviator flight dynamics upgrade!

FS2000 Panels


DC-6 Classic Panel version 5.  Warning!  Not compatible with FS2002!  Use the version 4 panels until version 6 is reelased.  Here is the new version of the DC-6 IFR panel from Francois Ouellette and myself, simulating a panel from the 50's and early 60's.  This panel adds lots of new features, including real prop feathering, supercharging, engine failure/fire, and a Flight Engineer's Notepad with V speeds, cruise info, aircraft log, fuel planning, and more!  This is all Francois' work, and is far more sophisticated than in any other panel available anywhere!  It still uses the FS98 flight model, so you can start up your engines like the real thing, complete with slowly rotating engines and startup sounds!  (but it is for FS2000 only).  This panel can be used for the DC-4 through the DC-6C.  Last modified on 9/16/01.

 DC-7 Classic Panel  version 5.   Warning!  Not compatible with FS2002!  Use the version 4 panels until version 6 is reelased.  Here is a new variation of the DC-6 panel, complete with working DC-7 speed brake controls!  On the DC-7, the main gear could be lowered to act as a speed brake.  There is a "barber pole" airspeed indicator as well, displaying the max airspeed as it changes with altitude.  All the other features of the DC-6 v5 panel are here too, of course.  YOU MUST HAVE THE DC6PNL5 PACKAGE INSTALLED ACCORDING TO THE INSTRUCTIONS!!  This is a very small download, since it shares most gauges and panel bitmaps with the DC-6 panel .  Last modified on 9/16/01.

Twin Classic Propliner Panel version 5.  Warning!  Not compatible with FS2002!  Use the version 4 panels until version 6 is reelased.  I've taken the DC-6 panel and modified it into a twin panel, with all the great features of the version 5 DC-6 panel.  Two advantages to this DC-6 panel add-on:  a smaller download and it adds very few gauges to your hard drive!  YOU MUST ALSO HAVE THE GAUGES AND SOUNDS FROM THE DC6PNL5 PACKAGE!!  Last modified on 9/16/01.

Download the FS2000/FS98 CV-240/340's with passenger doors that match the door lights!  (Operated by the seat belt switch).

 Douglas DC-4 Panel.  Michael Verlin has modified my DC-6 panel to create a  new DC-4 panel for aircraft with true FS2000 FDE's (like his new Delta DC-4, which is included).  It features new FS2K start switches, etc., by Rob Clark.  Thanks!  Last updated on 7/16/00.

Douglas DC-3 Panel.  Bill Rambow and Roy Chaffin  have produced this panel, a real labor of love.  This panel has complete and accurate working instrumentation - you fly it just like the real thing, complete with start switches, etc.  The night lighting is spectacular!  Thanks, guys!  Now updated to version 4 for FS2000!   Also includes a beautiful R4D (C-47) by Jan Visser!  Last updated on 6/11/00.  Panel at Flightsim.  Last updated on 3/18/01.

 Convair CV-580 Panel.  Jorgen Unschuld has just the 580 panel for you.  Thanks, of course! Requires the turboprop gauges from the FS2000 Pro edition.   Last updated on 3/5/00.


FS98 Panels

 Fokker/Fairchild F-27 Panel.  Matthias Lieberecht has produced this very nice F-27 panel.  Thanks!  Last updated on 3/5/00. A panel update is included in FSAviator's FS2002 Flight Dynamics Upgrade!

Some panel images are taken from www.flightsim.com, a great spot to find the latest files - thanks, Nels!
