Spoiler and reverse thrusters gauge by Glenn Copeland

Have not check them out yet but sound interesting. I think Glenn is in his arm and hand phase. He just put out Third_hand and Forth_hand now he is releasing arm_1 😀

FS2004 Gauge: Airspeed Reduction Monitor(ARM). This small, fully animated gauge arms the spoilers and reverse thrusters so both deploy upon landing. The gauge does not extend spoilers or activate reverse thrusters until the nose wheel is safely on the runway. This overcomes the pitch-up tendency in some jets caused when the spoilers deploy as soon as the main gear touches down. As IAS decreases to preset limits, r/thrusters auto-deactivate followed later by spoiler retraction. By Glenn

I had a good look at Glenn's gauges the other day, I also came across the one you just mentioned, but frankly, though interesting concepts, I feel that some of his gauges take realism away from simming.

To be blunt, I want to be responsible for retracting landing gear, I want to be responsible for deploying and/or arming spoilers etc.

On the other hand his gauges where you input data into AP by means of a numeric keypad I find very useful, more practical and (probably) more realistic.

I don't know much about 'Realism' ... the boundaries become blurry at times 😀

i find his radio gauges are brilliant, these spare hands however seem to take the fun out.i can see their appeal toothers though. as i've said many times - i admire the guy's skill!

I have to agree some of the gauges do take too much of out of the sim experiance. I guess my big draw to his gauges is checking out the code. Some of the gauges could possibly be preforming some of the duties of a copilot on big iron. The nice part of this is we get to pick and choose what we install on our panels and don't have to put up with a feature because some people like them. I have to admit I have pointed out gauges that intrig me but have not actually used on any aircraft.

Of course, this explains it. But this is what you get when you prioritise the 'real world' over the virtual one.
People (to my great shame I have to include myself) forget the genius you really are in all matters related to gauges at least. Bow Down 😀
