He's another one I'd like to see.
As we look to allow users to change panel / gauge options "on the fly", I would like the ability to re-load the aircraft without the need to access the menu. Perhaps some gauge variable or similar.
Right now, if we want to make a change to the panel while in flight, we need to go through the menu to reload the aircraft, and this is not practical as the user may have changed key board assignments. Example: If they do not have the menu bar visible, and have re-assigned their Alt key to do something else, we're stuck.
Sure, we know we can have alternate panel.cfg files, but these must be selected prior to flight. We want the user to be able to change things once they are in the aircraft, with just the push of a button. We believe this is more convenient.
If MS happens to have our Beech A36 or Baron, you will see the Configuration Control that we use. Some items here we can engage by re-setting the flight, but when it comes to panel options, a reset will not work, and we must reload the plane / panel.
Hope this makes sense.
