This panel is great but it has a few issues
3 weeks ago
Summary: This panel is great but it has a few issues. First, the software is tough to get working and keep working. Sometimes you start FSX and the panel won't come on. From time to time you will still see the frequencies change in the cockpit even if there isn't numbers displayed on the unit. I've had better results using SPAD software. (google that) Second, the knobs do not act as if they should.
Summary: Some things to know about this radio panel: 1. As others have mentioned, the frequency knobs are finicky. There are clicks that you can feel when turning them. The problem is that the coarse adjust is 2MHz per click, not 1MHz as you would expect. To get a 1MHz adjustment you have to stop rotating halfway between clicks which can be difficult to accomplish when trying to focus on multiple other things at once. The fine adjust is the same way.
Summary: The unit is part of three external panels that I use for Microsoft FS X on a desktop. It is about correct in size and functions well. The quality of the build is reasonable and I have no complaints.
