SimVimPanel notes

1. Every specific aircraft panel is provided with its typical instrument layout, with exact positioning and spacing.

2. Every panel is provided with either full panel graphic background (like the examples below) or simple color background with bezels.

3. If you don't need the panel/bezel graphics, it can be hidden by pressing "B" on the keyboard. For the instruments part of the panel we will provide a full cut-out template with dimensions.

    You can use the dimensions (template) provided here for your cutouts, or you can launch the panel and make your template directly from the screen.

  • 1. To move the panel: use the arrow keys (up, down, left, right). After you use arrow keys to move the panel, pressing "Enter" will save the position.
  • 2. All instruments are automatically displayed in their real size (3,125") on any screen. The program usually detects the screen size correctly. If not - enter your horizontal screen size (in mm) in the main menu and press Enter. If you have a panel module launched, you can open the menu by pressing "M".
  • 3. If you want, you can change the scale, by entering another horizontal size not matching your LCD size to fit the full panel but with all instruments reduced in size.
  • 4. Using the "Fit Screen" option in the menu will scale the panels in such way that their backgrounds are fully fitted within the screen. This option doesn't work for panel modules that don't have backgrounds included yet.

If you need, for some reason, to have different instrument spacing, you can send us your layout with relative coordinates for the instrument centers, we will adapt it for you. But it would be better to follow the existing template, we are making them as close to the real aircraft as possible.


In general, you don't need this, the pictures below show how the instruments fit different LCD screens to let you decide what monitor to use for your setup (Baron 58 or Bonanza is used as example).

The full sized SimVimX panels can be used as-is, without any covering, on a quite large screen, here is how it is fitted on the 31.5" monitor (2560x1440 is used here for Baron-58 and Piper PA44):


If you build a hardware panel with LCD screen behind the cover panel you may have several options:

1. Old 19" monitor with 5:4 ratio can be used for the main instruments only (for example, all engine gauges can be servo or stepper driven):

2. 19" monitor with 16:9 ratio can be used for all instruments of the A36 Bonanza panel (except the upper annunciator and altitude selector panels). The distance between the engine gauges (and maybe gauge sizes) will be reduced slightly to fit the vertical screen size:

3. 21.5-inch or 22-inch monitor with 16:9 ratio can be used for all instruments of the Baron 58 or A36 Bonanza panel (except the upper annunciator and altitude selector panels). The distance (not sizes) between the engine gauges will be reduced slightly to fit the vertical screen size:

4. 22" monitor with 16:10 ratio can be used for all instruments of the Baron 58 or A36 Bonanza panel:

5. 23" or 23.6" monitor can be used for all instruments of the Baron 58 or A36 Bonanza panel:

5. 24" monitor can be used for all instruments or as a panel without covering:

6. 27" monitor can be used for all instruments or as a panel without covering, including upper glareshield annunciators:



Reduced panel size

Another option that you may want to use is to always show the full panel with background on any monitor screen you use.

In this case the whole panel can be scaled accordingly with your monitor size and fit the screen size.
