July 2017 : EasyFMC for Prepar3D v4 Released

The new version of EasyFMC for Prepar3D v4 (64 bits) has just been released. For more information, please refer to the EasyFMC page, the download and purchase section now includes this specific version.

June-July 2017 : Release of Prepar3D v4 (64 bits)

The new version 4 of Prepar3D 64 bits has made all my add-ons incompatible. I am currently working on porting them to the new 64 bits platform. EasyFMC is already ported, it is now being tested and will be released soon.

I will probably not port the older add-ons, unless specific requirements from the users.

May 2017 : Primary Flight Display (PFD) on a tablet

Based on the experience of EasyFMC Mobile, I have started the development of a Primary Flight Display in a web browser. It is just a prototype but it shows it works fine, even on a low-end Android tablet. To know more, see the video here.
If you think this may be interesting for you, please let me know here.

April 2017 : EasyFMC Mobile now available

EasyFMC is now available in a web browser, it can run on any device: iPad, iPhone, Android smartphone and tablet, or any other device that can run a web browser such as Google Chrome,Apple Safari, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge or other... It works everywhere.

March 2017 : Looking for beta-testeurs for EasyFMC Mobile

You were dreaming of using EasyFMC on a smartphone or a tablet, it will soon be possible with EasyFMC Mobile. This new version runs in a web browser so it can be used on a PC, on a smartphone, on a tablet, iPad, iPhone, Android, it works everywhere.
I am looking for beta-testers to test the Beta version only available for FSX at this time. If you are interested, please click here to contact me by email.

January 2017 : New add-on?

I have been silent for a long time because I have been very busy with personal problems, but I would like to come back with a new add-on. So many add-ons have been done that it is now difficult to find something that has not been done already.
I was thinking about what I know well, vector gauges for glass-cockpit aircrafts, especially for Airbus and Boeing modern airliners. This would include Primary Flight Display (PFD) with all the necessary flight information, Navigation Display (ND) with moving map (navaids, TCAS and route display), and Engine Information and Crew Alerting System (EICAS) with all engine and systems information. It would be a nice complement to EasyFMC.
These gauges would be automatically integrated in the FSX B737, B747 and A321 stock aircraft and would be easy to add in any aircraft by editing the panel.cfg file. I would be able to easily customize these gauges to make them compliant with other aircrafts, such as business jets or other jet liners.
I could also be able to release the same gauges in "External" mode, as standalone applications that connect to FSX/P3D with FSUIPC and possibly WideFS to run on a remote PC.
I know some "competitor" gauges of this kind already exist so I am not sure this project is interesting. Please let me know what you thinking using the online poll here.

March 2016 : External EasyFMC updated

External EasyFMC has been updated to add the keyboard mode and fix minor issues. Existing customers can re-downoad and re-install External EasyFMC without having to register again.

The FSX version EasyFMC is now fully compatible with FSX Steam Edition (FSX SE). Head to the EasyFMC page to download this version.

July 2015 : EasyFMC in Remote Mode

I now have the ability to develop a new version of EasyFMC that would run as an external application, so that it could be used in remote mode with the help of FSUIPC, even on a secondary PC using WideFS.
This is a hard development work so I would like to make sure enough people are interested before starting the development work. If you are interested, please let me know by email by clicking here.

April 2015 : EasyFMC released for Prepar3D

After being tested with Prepar3D version 2.4 and 2.5, a new version of EasyFMC is now officially available for Prepar3D v2, with the exact same functionnality as for FS2004 and FSX. The installation is fully automated for Prepar3D v2.

January 2014 : New evolution of FSUIPC Exporter

The FSUIPC Exporter product has evolved again to ease the life of cockpit builders. First, it has been updated to correctly take into account the differences between the A320 Series aircraft and the A330/340, especially regarding the ECAM Control Panel and the Autobrake. In addition, new offsets have been created to provide control of the TCAS functions and the weather radar in the AIrbus Evolution.

For more information, please refer to the EasyFMC page.

February 2013

During the life of the Radar Gauge 2.0 released some years ago, some people complained that editing the panel.cfg to add the radar in an aircraft panel was not so easy. This is why I developed a small but useful utility, called Radar Panel Updater, which automatically updates the panel.cfg of your choice, according to the options you have selected, so that the radar is added to the panel in a separate window. It is free and can be downloaded now on the Radar Gauge page.

January 2013

It is still time to wish you all a happy new year 2013, full of health, success and hapiness !!
The new year brings a new bug... The trial period of 10 minutes for FSUIPC Exporter did not work since January 1st, 2013. This has just been fixed and a new version is available on the FSUIPC Exporter page. You can now test this product again, a trail period of 10 minutes after FS startup that lets you try FSUIPC Exporter before buying.

Customers who have bought the FSUIPC Exporter are not impacted and don't need to install the new version.

December 2011: LINDA Profile for FeelThere/Wilco Airbus Series

Capt PERO has just released a LINDA profile for the Wilco Airbus Series Volume 1 & 2. As it is based on the FSUIPC Exporter, this profile handles almost all the Airbus-specific controls and avoids the usage of mouse-click macros. All the cockpit builders who use LINDA should be happy about this new profile. Note that the profile will be improved as soon as new offsets are available with FSUIPC Exporter (hopefully very soon).

This is an utility that brings various features. The most important part is the Aricraft Selector that allows a much faster and more efficient aircraft selection. If like me you have many aircrafts and variants (more than 1000) in your collection, you will appreciate it.
fs9 Toolbox also includes a VC Camera that lets you look anywhere using the mouse and move freely in the aircraft, a fly-byview that lets you see you aircraft in flight and some other nice things...

Airbus panel support and FSX

The current version of my Airbus panels, which used to be available here, are not supported any more. This is why they are not available for download and will not be ported to FSX.
