When you are a happy customer, we like to show your efforts here.
If you send us some pictures of your cockpit panels, we can show your fellow builders
the wide range of possibilities of FsXPand. Need to talk about what is
shown here? Our forum
is the place to be.

You don't need to buy ready to go MIP's to make a nice

Two very compact setups that show you how easy it can be using
software gauges behind a mask.
Impressive MIP as well, Rob!

If you want a light aircraft cockpit, FsXPand is the way to go. Look
how smartly built.
And Airmap X on the right.
Just a few shots of his completed 737NG pit. Well done, Dave.
Yes, it is FsXpand...
Steve is well on track building his AH64 Apache.
Do we all build such shells?
Stephane shows us that with just one monitor, a light aircraft panel
can be made easily. A few modules gives you just what you want to
complete the cockpit.
One wide screen may be enough to display a simple glass cockpit for a
jet. And it is easy to switch types of course.

Here's an example of the cockpit built with the help of Dave Lidgley.
They have done a lovely job, all the knobs and switches are fully
functional on the panel. It's a perfect example of a GA cockpit using
Bas van Leeuwen (KLM077),
Bas van Leeuwen recently updated his site
with new cockpit info.
Take a look at his FSF. With this principle of making a general
aviation cockpit it's easy to change your setup for flying different
aircraft in FS2004 or FSX.
Instrument panels can be changed according to the required instruments
configuration of the plane. The panels can be taken away easily when
the desk is used for normal desktop work in stead of flight
Matthew Fitzjohn, Mawson Lakes,
are pictures of Matt's B737-800 simulator. Matthew is using 3 LCD
screens behind the MIP. Matt's plan is to use 3 projectors for
the views later on.

The pictures below show the
FsXPand part in it. His trick is to take a flatscreen big enough to
cover the whole center section, and show both EICAS and auxiliary
instruments on it:
Zooming in to the central displays

And now for the condensed view. With a
turn of the rotary switch, Ian can show any one of 5 different
configurations. It is done by sending keystrokes to FsClient using a
Check the flap gauge
In his own words:
I am so happy with your program.....
it looks very good.....
This morning, I have flown the
simulator for 2 hours with all programs
running. I have no problems or bugs to report...everything works fine
I am still amazed at the ability of
FsXpand to fill the gap on the
EICAS screen. Now all my displays are operating and everybody who has
is well impressed.
This is a close-up of FX's
experimental Helicopter application of FsXpand. Specific heli gauges
are on the way, and I am sure more people are going to like them.

an overview in the air. Sandor
is currently working with the Cessna 172, but this is really a
multi-purpose sim. Behind the glass there are hardware instruments.
FsXPand panels are used to extend the panel with more instruments.
Look at the nice 3-screen Wideview display...

Philippe has his simulator based on
Milton Shupe's Dash 7. He could lay hands on a mock-up and brought it
to life with IOcards and Beta Innovation stuff. Of course the gauges
are displayed by FsXPand.
Philippe had a problem displaying the right flap positions, but we
A big thank for this perfect
support! A patch in a such small amount of time! FYI, it is working
perfectly on my configuration after having been in trouble!
You can contact Paul on our forum.
Is this a real Dash or what?

One of his tricks is, to take two old laptops going to be slung out at
work, and mount them in brackets behind the panel board.
Andre is building a King-Air cockpit.
congrats on an brilliant software
idea.It looks good, works well and helps us cockpit builders a stack.
Andre uses 2 Pc's with each three
screens. One for center, left and right forward views, and one for
basic flight and engine instruments with in the middle the radiostack
Andre modified the standard turbine template to concentrate radios,
autopilot and annunciator bar in the center.

Here's another one building a 737NG cockpit.
"FsXPand is GREAT!
I registered and started using
FsXPand on Friday. I have FxClient
on three old P3 (Win98)
boxes. Your program simply rocks!!
I am building a 737NG cockpit on a
motion platform. FsXPand is an
alternative to Project Magenta when
building on a budget. I hope
Thanks again for a great product!
Pictures coming soon...
