...maybe its just me... winkyy.gif ...

...but I adore 2D panels for two main reasons... biggrin.gif ....

(1) I can observe the whole 2D panel information with a single glance.
(2) I can modify the whole 2D panel to my liking, with the help of my "FS Panel Studio".

And some of the panels can be re-sized (dragged down) for a better view forward!

It might not suit the purist Sim Pilot, but, by gad, its very practical for my daily exploration flights in my low level, GA Aircraft!!

No 2D Panel....No Fly! ....winkyy.gif....!

I tend not to take to take the Flight Sims too seriously, as regard actual reality! I leave that to my occasional real-life flights in the Club's Cessna 150/152!

Yeah Bugger! rolleyes.gif .. Mike I'm sure you will hook into Mikes DH Heron, I am trying to get him to co-inside a Devon build ... It may turn you to a VC cockpit - with a very good one you would never touch 2D again !

I do like a good VC...but the CBFS 2D panels are very good, for Derek's Dove as well. Making a night IFR NDB approach, and coming out of the procedure turn to see the runway lights dead ahead, makes me feel very smug rolleyes.gif

Think that was the war cry on its release, the Devon/Dove , would have been an extra super fave with an extra super VC and internals cool.gif
