Supported Simulators

Microsoft Flight Simulator X, Flight Simulator X Steam Edition, Prepar3d & Flight Sim World are supported. Gauges use simconnect and Microsoft ESP protocols. x-plane does not use simconnect, but SPAD.neXt transcribes the gauge simconnect variables to x-plane format, so while gauges mostly work, I can not fully support issues with variable transcriptions.

Mostly Working but Not Supported


While fipgauges.com has many x-plane customers, we do NOT support x-plane. Our gauges are simply not coded for x-plane. However, thanks to SPAD.neXt, the majority of our gauges do actually work in x-plane. SPAD.neXt transcribes the SIMCONNECT variables in our gauges to x-plane format and any readout issues should be reported to SPAD.neXt, who state "not all SIMCONNECT variables are converted, any missing variable conversions should be reported to SPAD.neXt".

I can not issue refunds should you choose to buy them and have issues using them in x-plane. All output errors should be reported to SPAD.neXt support and NOT to fipgauges.com. Any issues not related to the incorrect display of data from x-plane can still be reported to fipgauges.com, but if found to be as a result of bad or no data transcription, then we would not be able to resolve.

X-Plane known issues (reported by users since 12/12/2017)...

Digital Clock:
Simulator time shows the sim time but every few seconds randomly jumps to another value and then goes back to the right value (PC time shown without issue)

Digital Clock with O.A.T. and Volts:
Simulator time shows the sim time but every few seconds randomly jumps to another value and then goes back to the right value (PC time shown without issue)

Flight Information Box:
Issues displaying: N1 and N2 Percentages, Some fuel vaules and the spoiler position not working.

Hover Gauges (Both Standard and Military):
Scaling is wrong at 120n it only moves about 1 to 2 notches on the gauge scale

Volt - APU and Generator Gauge
Reported that values are not displayed - advised to contact SPAD.neXt
