About Flight Information Box:
The "Flight Information Box" is a 6 page gauge, with each page fixed to one of the "S" buttons. This gauge was the longest in development, the most challenging and most functional gauge in our gauge fleet. Taking close to 3 months to create there is lots packed in and value for your money.

The Main Gauge:
Consists of the following 6 pages:
 
1) Overview of most of the gauge data.
 
2) Outside Conditions.
Here you can see your speed, weight, outside temperatures, heading, CRS, Wind speed and direction. Depending if you prefer to show wind direction "From" or "To" you can toggle wind pointers 180deg if you press and hold [S2] for 2 seconds.
 
3) Altitude:
Here you can see VSI, AGL, MSL & Pressure settings
 
4) Engines:
The engines page will re-arange it's self based on the number of engines the aircraft has (1-4) and shows N1, EGT, N2 Oil Temp and Oil Pressure.
 
5) Fuel
Here you can view your fuel tank contents by Percent, pounds or gallons. The page will only show tanks valid for the current aircraft
 
6) Control Surfaces
Here you can see the status of your control surfaces like. Flapy, spoilers, trim, gear lever brakes, nose wheel steering and lights.
 
This gauge comes with alternative background colours in black or blue. This also toggles the black/blue background on our other gauges with the same feature so they are in sync.
 
This gauge will switch off automatically when the aircraft bus voltage drops to zero or if the aircraft bus voltage drops below FG_GLOBAL_MIN_VOLTAGE value if set.

Buttons & Dials Details:
[S1] Home Info Page:
Use to access the overview home page.
 
[S2] Speed & Winds Page:
Use to activate the Outside Conditions page. Press and hold [S2] to toggle wind direction pointer 180deg depending if you prefer point showing "To" or "From" direction.
 
[S3] Altitude Page:
Use to show altitude page.
 
[S4] Engines Page:
Use to show Engines Page.
 
[S5] Fuel and Tanks Page:
Use to show the fuel status page.
 
[S6] Control Surfaces Page:
Use to show the control surfaces page.
 
[L Dial] Menu Value Down/Up:
Used to increase or decrease the function of the selected menu option.
 
[R Dial] Menu Left/Right:
Used to activate the Mini Menu and scroll between the various menu options.

The Mini Menu:
(Activated with [R Dial])
 
Version & Info:
Turn left dial clockwise to turn on and counter clockwise to turn off current version number and other useful links.
 
Background Colour:
Turn left dial clockwise or counter clockwise to toggle gauge background colour between black and blue. This also toggles the black/blue background on our other gauges with the same feature so they are in sync.
 
Glass Reflection:
Turn left dial clockwise to turn on and counter clockwise to turn off optional glass reflections. This is a global setting so all gauges that have this function will turn on and off in sync.
 
Aircraft Compatibility Mode:
Switch between SIM and PMDG737 compatibility.

Variables:
FG_JET_BACKGROUND_COLOUR (Profile)
     Background Colour (Black = 0, Blue = 1 )
