Well, there are 2 ways to do this but i'll tell you the easy way. Say you've got a plane which you want to have the Boeing 737's panel. Go to the SimObjects/Airplanes folder in the FSX Directory (usually C:\Program Files/Microsoft Games/Microsoft Flight Simulator X/SimObjects/Airplanes) and find the plane with the panel you want to change. Open the folder and then open the Panel folder. First, make a backup of the Panel.cfg file somewhere on your computer incase you want to restore it later. Next, Open the Panel.cfg file in Notepad and delete everything in it. Type only the following code:

Code: [fltsim]
alias=???\panel

Edit the question marks with the name of the folder of the plane that has the panel you want. In this case, it is the Boeing 737 and the folder name is B737_800 so if you type that in the space of the question marks, then save the Panel.cfg file, it will read the Boeing 737's panel.

So the final Panel.cfg would look like this:

Code: [fltsim]
alias=b737_800\panel
