Pro-Sim question regarding standby displays

I asked this at the Pro-Sim forum, but never received an answer.  Maybe someone here knows?

In early 737NG's, there was a standby attitude display (see attached for an example).  It had no navigational cues that I am aware of.  The controls consisted of a brightness function ONLY.

Because I've modeled the physical standby airspeed/alt gage, and this display took the place of the standby ADI, not sure if I want to model the physical complexity of the OEM stby ADI. Not certain that I can get one, or if I can afford it if one were found.

Does anyone know if Pro-Sim can model this early display? 

Thanks.

The only version of this in the current Prosim model is the ISFD which does provide navigational queuing. It can be modeled in hardware using a 5" LCD screen and a smart bezel. Speak with the folks at Ruscool Electronics to see when they are going to produce more bezels.

Thanks, Jim!  Got a not back last nite from those guys; going to be a while (months) before they can get to it.  But as we discussed, it's definitely an option.

Hi Kev,

I like your thought. I have a similar setup, but with hardware standby alt/spd and still looking for gyro.

I have searched for images of early NG flight decks, but have not come across the setup. Do you happen to have images of cockpits with the above standby digital artificial horizon?

I'm currently developing a cockpit gauge suite for a soaring simulator and in the process of finalising the artificial horizon there.

Looking at the image above it would not be a long shot to replicate that model. Would only need to hook into FSUIPC or SimConnect, instead of the soaring simulator, but that should be doable.

Best, Roel

Hi, Roel,

I found the alternate p/n standby gyro in the Czech Republic.  It's on it's way.

I don't have any images of that digital model. It was in Bill Bulfer's book.

Regards,

Kev
