This archive contains version 5.0 of my "groundhandling" gauges, like automated pushback with conversation sounds, a Taxispeed controller using throttle AND brakes, and more; it can added to any aircraft. New in V5.0: 1. Only for FSX !! 2. Accurate interworking with the new FSX pushback tugs. YES, finally :-) !!! 3. Reworked Brakes gauge. 4. Taxispeed gauge now has a built-in ARM function. Easy to install, and fully documented.

Editorial

I first downloaded this mod a little unsure of what it actually contained – the reviews, though, sounded positive and it seemed to have inside what I was looking for. In a bid to freshen up many of my ground-handling equipment, I decided to download this to give me some new features I never had previously.

I had to say that the attention to detail and the precision for always offering genuine care in the detail has been very impressive. This provides you with taxi-speed controls using both the throttle and brakes which was something I was very impressed by – it was like a toolbox full of random FS related materials.

Whilst I haven’t found a genuine need for everything included in here yet, many of them are very impressive. For example, this now includes a fully accurate inter-working with the new FSX push-back tugs. These look great and do a good job of bringing the whole thing together, adding another layer of features that I felt were sorely lacking at times.

Another benefit of this add-on, though, comes from the fact that it’s an absolute dream to install; also it comes with all the documentation that you could possibly need.

In short, if you are looking for an easy way to enjoy FSX with a few new twists and add-ons, start here.

Have you found it yet? Its in the FSX/Simobjects/aircraft/boeing737/panel. Or what ever aircraft you wish to use

Jim PartingtonSat, 15 Mar 2014 14:51:58 GMT

Love the gauges. They work perfectly in my 747. Installed in my 737-800 and I don't know how to view the gauges to activate it. Can you help, please?

Can someone tell me where I find "The windows title section" as said in instructions:

- In the [Window Titles] section, add the line:

Window**=Groundhandling

Replace '**' with the next free number. For e.g. the default FSX 737_800: '**' is 10

I cannot see ** number refered to above.

What a wonderful utility! Worked first time. Pity the author's name is unknown, but if he/she reads this, then a big THANKYOU for your work, and excellent documentation. Thanks again, Patster (NZ).
