I am looking to build an advanced wind gauge. I am not a designer, but I have "assembled" a compilation of different panels for my 737 that use parts from lots of different sources; amoong which is a wind gauge.
what I want to do is improve on that wind gauge, so that you can do 2 additional things without having to go to another window or module.
a: push a button on the gauge that would allow you to find the most favourable wind going in your current direction within say 10,000 ft so that you could request from ATC ( vatsim) a more economic altitude; and
b: allow you to input your destination in a txt box, so that you could see the direction / strength of the "landing" winds prior to getting there. This would allow a proper setup of STAR without bothering the controller.
anybody interested? just reply, and my WestJet 737-400 is ready to test.....
