Hi, I would like to know where I could find what I need to be able to fly the MD-83 and DeHavilland Dash 8 AI planes in FSX. I've been looking everywhere for the panels and all but cant quite seem to be able to put my hands on them. I'm also looking for good virtual cockpit for my BAE-146 plane. I came with the 747 2D panel and I want better. If anyone could help with this, it would be juuuussst awesome! Cheers!
About flying the Dash 8 and MD-83 AI aircraft. I have be looking around on the web to find an answer to that too. Except I have FS2004. But when I was looking I found an wikipedia article that gave a link to make those two AI aircraft flyable. The page with the Dash 8 is http://www.simviation.com/fsxprops2.htm
the second download called FSX AI Dash 8-100 Made Flyable
The page that has the MD-83 is
the seventh download called FSX Default MD-83 made Flyable
Another way to make the two planes flyable is to use the Aircraft Editor. Open the editor and then open one of the models. It will have MD-83, MD-83 Paint 1, and MD-83 paint 2 (or something like this) listed. click one of them and then make a copy, save it to the aircraft folder, open FS and you should be able to fly it. The only problem though is that you won't have a panel. But you can use another panel from a different plane, or just download one online. Then do the same for the other MD-83 models and the Dash 8 models
Cool, I found the make the Dash8 flyable but never the MD-83. When you do make the MD-80 flyable be sure to download the MD-80 panel, it is more realistic.
Where can I get the panels. I'm only using the Learjet45 panel for the MD-83 now. And the KingAir for the Dash 8. That would be great if I could get the real panel?
The Dash 8 thing I downloaded had a panel. Go to flightsim.com and do a search.
simply take a .air file from a good similar plane. put it in the AI aircraft and rename it to what the AI air file is called ( first delete the original AI .air file tho).
