Chance Vought F-8E Crusader VC Panel. A new panel for the Rollus F-8 Crusader. Requires the file FSXCRUS.ZIP. This better represents an F-8E instrument panel. It comes with some new gauges and replaces the HUD with a gunsight. The VC panel alone is changed. The 2D panel is not changed. By John Detrick.

Place the folder panel.F8E into your crusader folder.

Place the gauges in the gauges folder into your FSX gauges folder.

Change the panel alias in your cfg to the F8E:

title=F-8E VMF(AW)-122 ZUNI and Bull Pup
<---------------------------------- Change to this.
ui_type="F-8E Crusader VMF(AW)-122"
ui_variation="VMF(AW)-122 CRUSADERS ZUNI and BULL PUP"
description= F-8E VMF(AW)-122 MCAS

Change the fuel entry in your cfg to this:


//Longitudinal (feet), Lateral (feet), Vertical (feet), Usable(gallons), Unusable (gallons)

fuel_type = 2
number_of_tank_selectors = 1
electric_pump = 1

Center1 = -7.97, 0, -1.09, 753.0, 0 <---------------- Change to this
LeftMain = -8, 0, -1.1, 595.0, 0 <---------------- Change to this

This is to make the Main and Transfer fuel quantities work properly. The Fuel in the wings on the F-8 was considered to be one tank for quantity purposes. I've also made a Low Fuel annunciator which the real aircraft had. It comes on with about 10 percent fuel remaining. I've borrowed some freeware gauges from other projects. Some came from the VNConnie, others from various sources.
