Re: Panel background with holes

The best graphic editor so far for creating images and background for instruments in Air Manager is Skinman IMHO. And it’s free! @JackZ Hello Jacques, I saw Russ' introductory video today. Skinman looks easy to use and impressively powerful. I will try it as soon as I come arround designing some in...

Re: MessagePort USB problem

Joe,

Re: MessagePort USB problem

Hi Detlef, firstly, AMAZING work, it looks absolutely superb. I am well impressed :D Really interesting that another USB port seems to work - albeit on an 'extender' Can I just please clarify what you mean by 'extender' ?

Re: Crashes (CTD) with FF A320 instrument

Tony,

yes, I will try with other panels/instruments. Bought me a Carenado Saab 340 today. Carenado aircrafts have good prices currently, I hope I can find some instruments for that.

Thanks

Re: MessagePort USB problem

Tony, I am sure of nothing here. I have no oscilloscope or other to really measure noise of the power supply. I switched off the external power supply (I think it is a 3A capable good quality device). But my Arduino would not connect, same after PC off/on. Now I plugged the USB cable to a different ...
