Cockpit building questions

Hello dear RotorSim fans and authors and thank you very much for this amazing addon. I love to fly your EC135 in X-Plane.

Let me introduce myself briefly - my name is Pavel Brodsky and I am a student at Czech Technical University at Prague. I also work at our university as a simulator technician. Currently we operate two fixed base flight simulators - one C182RG for single crew flying and one generic twin engine IFR piston plane (wannabe BE-58) for multicrew training, IR training and research.

Our plan is to build our own helicopter simulator next year. In my free time I fly and do ATC on VATSIM, and I actively develop freeware addons for both FSX and X-Plane. I am quite well familiar with both those sims and I like using both of them on my computer. For our university sim we DEFINITELY choose X-Plane. I have quite lot of experience with sim building and hardware development, interfacing real hardware, etc. The aim of our sim would be to build fixed base EC-135. The hardware is clear, we have plans, no problem. Other than schools sims, I have been working on DC-9 project ( www.dc-9.eu ), now developing an X-Plane ultralight aircraft of a Czech manufacturer Skyleader:



For the software I would love to use your EC-135 so here come some questions:

1) Somewhere on the forums I read that you have also commercial package of 135. Could you send me some information - if there are any benefits, features, etc? If you prefer to discuss it outside of forums, please contact me at Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt! Zur Anzeige muss JavaScript eingeschaltet sein!

2) Do you have a list of x-plane offsets which we can READ from the EC-135 which are your custom/plugin, not native X-Plane helicopter offsets? We will need them for building the annunciator, etc. We have hardware platform which can read any offset from XPL and transfer it to Arduino, but we need the offset names.

3) I suppose that with "writing" offsets to X-Plane there will be no problem - we can use the default XPL offsets as well as your additional offsets as described in the documentation - for example for joy button assignment. Or is here anything special that is not writeable?

4) The only thing I am not 100% happy with is the glass cockpit resolution. We plan using high res LCDs for our glasscockpit so it would be cool to have better readable letters and digits on displays. Is here any way I could contribute to making high resolution gauges for the RotorSim EC-135? For example I can draw the graphic again in Photoshop and save it as much higher resolution images - but I am not fully familiar with gauges development for XPL. The best way would be that I could improve the current low-res displays and you could publish this update for other users to benefit from it...

Edit: we plan to begin mechanical construction in 4Q 2015 so we have plenty of time to prepare everything properly (I am currently designing the Autodesk projects for almost everything from scratch - which is the way I prefer it).

Best regards,

Pavel Brodsky

Hi Pavel,

Can you send me the same information. I want to build my home cockpit.

Would it be possible to pin the answer to the forum.

I'm guessing there are quite a few who like to hear that answer.
