    Just Flight - Steam Gauge Overhaul - Caravan Release

    The first add-on in Black Square's Steam Gauge Overhaul series for default Microsoft Flight Simulator aircraft is now on sale!

    This new study-level add-on for the default MSFS Cessna 208B Grand Caravan EX provides a completely new interior and panel with 'steam' gauge (analogue) instrumentation and swappable radio configurations, each modelled and coded with extreme attention to detail and based on a specific piece of real-world equipment.

    The panel of the aircraft contains only fully 3D gauges, modelled and coded to meticulously match their real-world counterparts and developed with reference to real-world maintenance and installation manuals.

    Radio and navigation systems are available from several eras of the Caravan's history, so users can fly without GPS via an original Bendix KNS-80 RNAV system or with the convenience of a Garmin GTN 750 (PMS50 or TDS). Other swappable radio equipment includes KX-155 NAV/COM radios, GNS 530, GNS 430, KR 87 ADF, KDI 572 DME, GTX 327 transponder, KAP 140 autopilot, and a Bendix RDR1150XL colour weather radar.

    The Steam Gauge Overhaul add-ons have been developed by a real pilot and aircraft owner seeking to bring extreme realism to MSFS for those who historically enjoy the complexity of airliners but who have come to appreciate lower altitude flying in MSFS.

    A comprehensive manual is included in the package and that can also be downloaded via the product page ahead of purchase.

      The manual needs to be on WHITE background so that we can print it out. I like to print out the manuals so i have a hard copy, but BLACK background really takes that away.

      How much do they charge?

      It's $30. They have overhauled systems (including engine), interior textures, and avionics of the aircraft. I prefer analog gauged aircraft, so to me, this is on my Buy Wishlist.

      YES, I agree and sent a support ticket to JF asking for the change.
      This is a great change to the Caravan 208.
      It took an AC I did not enjoy and made it one of my favorites.

      hey, no, contrary to what the manual says, the textures of the basic caravan are not easily compatible with the analog model, it's even quite boring to read pages 17. 18.19 from the documentation (for the price I think there should be a texture converter for addapter)

    Has the GPS units in the C172 AND PA-28 changed since the latest update? To me it seems that they did, and I was hoping to get the old ones back. ...
