Just purchased this product. The old version had an icon on the desktop to configure specific aircraft . This version did not install such an icon. Has anyone purchased this and have it running under P3D v5?
Thanks

Hi.

I've got it running in my setup. The P3Dv5 version installs itself as a generic panel so you can add it in any aircraft without needing to put it into the panels.cfg - go to Vehicle -> Instrument Panel in the menus and it's there. Of course if you want to place it into the VC rather than as a pop-up you need to manually config the panel yourself.

Fair warning - I found it causes micro-stutters in v5. You don't really notice them if your FPS is high generally but if you're already at low FPS (<25) the stutters are noticeable, down to 7 FPS on my rig. This is on P3D v5 HF2, haven't tried it on 5.1 and I doubt it'll work without a patch.

Shame, because it's a nice simulation of a Bendix unit, and I will still use it where I can.

Thanks for the update. Shortly after I posted the first message I found the panel installation tool in one of their folders.

Now I would love to find a way to remove their bezel. Any ideas?
Thanks

Jim,
Have you had a look in the .ini if it exists. Some have a statement like  Bezel=False
