Recently we published an article about Saitek FIP. For those who aren’t familiar with Saitek FIP; a FIP (Flight Instrument Panel) is a colorful 3.5-inch LCD screen that seamlessly integrates into flight sim software. The FIP automatically updates and reacts to software events, giving you accurate, real-time access to important flight and aircraft information.
And much faster then expected; the tutorial. You can grab your copy via this download link, but remember, you need to be a registered user to have access to our download section.
This tutorial covers the basics (graphics wise) on how to create a gauge or aircraft instrument although geared for the Saitek FIP, the theory is identical for creating X-Plane cockpit instruments. Marc’s tutorial has additional screenshots of today’s creations and although I’m not technical, it’s, as usual, clearly written and explained by Marc.
