Hello from Versailles
« on: July 08, 2017, 06:24:06 AM »
Hello,

I live near Paris at Versailles. I am 51 years old and I work as project manager in the field of culture.

My alias, RJ85 of course refers to the BAe AVRO. I appreciate regional airplanes and also high-wing aircraft. The RJ has everything to please me. I fly mainly in Europe on the IVAO network for the virtual company Air EUROPE VA. I have the project to build an AVRO cockpit.

ATB, Emmanuel

Emmanuel,

Here are some illustrations to get you started. Tried to attach them on PM, but would not let me.

They are all in inches...enough info here to at least get you started.

This will the first.

Nice panel.

I can get you actual pics and dimensions of panels if you want, I also have extra panels but reluctant to part with them as they are very expensive and hard to find.

I was lucky enough to actually fly the real aircraft, so the company I worked for allowed me to part out an entire BAe146 that was used for testing.

Still not sure how you are going to interface the overhead with QW product...I can tell you what I did..but it doesn't work for everyone.

I would like to have photographys with more precise measurements. I do not think I can afford to buy real panels. You are indeed fortunate to had fly on the BAE146 and to have real parts.

For panels, I will provide the plans to a professional who will perform custom panels. For the electronic part, I use the FDBUS cards. For the software part, I use an events capture software that gives me all QW offsets. I intend to use SIOC to interact between my maps and the simulator.

I will do them in millimeters

What is this events capture software you have? and how does it work.

Great!

What is this events capture software you have? and how does it work.

I use the Detective tool (GoFlight Interface Tool) by PollyPot software



  • Identify normally hidden variables (called local variables or lvars) using the Detective tool
  • Track all events and lvar changes in real time using the Detective tool
  • Create Bespoke Events using simple point and click commands that can alter lvars and then assign these in the same way as Simconnect events
  • Local variables (lvars) can be assigned just like Simconnect variables
  • Create your own bespoke variables
  • Interface to FSUIPC to read and write memory refs or execute LUA scripts (registered copy of FSUIPC required for these functions)
