  11. Hello fellow simmers! Coming out of Flight Sim Expo, I was pumped to add more hands on realism to my sim. I met several great people and companies all building hardware for our simulation niche. After much debate on which company and panel to go with, I decided to go with Diagma for my first panel. This is my first look and review of the Diagma flight simulator panel with the panel builder software. I want to start of by saying that Azat at Diagma was a pleasure doing business with. He was very fast and responsive on any questions I had from before purchase through and after the purchase and delivery. With all that said, lets get into budget and pre-delivery considerations. Whatever panel you go with, if it does not come with a monitor, that should be one of your first things to look at. You want the panel to fit perfectly on whatever monitor you choose. For this, you will need the exact dimensions of the panel. Azat was kind enough to get these to me and put those online for future customers. I researched sizes of monitors and found a dell 23” monitor that would fit this panel perfectly. It fits edge to edge with just enough room on the bottom to hit the power button to turn it on and off. It looks like it was made for this panel. See below for links to all the products in this review. With the monitor purchased and on the way, the Diagma panel and panel builder software were being shipped out as well. Both were scheduled to arrive in just a couple of days. I was excited to get things ready to fly. My A2A C172 was fired up on P3D and ready to go. Once the panel arrived, it was easy to install on the monitor. It has straps on both sides that fit around the monitor to hold it in place and snug. Instructions said to mount it after you setup the panel builder software, but I was able to do this with the panel in place without any issues. With the panel attached to the monitor and the USB cable from that panel connected to my PC, I was ready to setup the software. The software was easy to install, however it will take you a few hours to get things figured out as far as what controls you need to add and where. To start the software, open up Panel Builder. Make sure that your USB dongle is plugged into your computer or you will go into DEMO mode on the software. This is kind of a pain, but I am sure they offer a software key version as well. Now to add the controls. The process is simple, you find the controls you want in the Building menu—>Add Instrument. You click off which instruments you want to add and they appear on the screen when you click the Operation—>Start button. This is an iterative process unless you have a review like this to show you exactly which controls to add. I will provide this at the bottom of the review as well. You will be able to check off all of the controls and click one add and they will all be there. Once the controls have been added you will need to arrange them on your monitor. You can select which monitor to add them to from the Operation—>Edit Panel. I selected to run this software on one monitor only with it being on monitor 2. You can also set the color of the background to black out to black which I did. This will make the controls pop. When the controls first appear, they will appear on your main monitor and you will drag them into the location on the external display. Put them in their correct location and then resize them with the mouse wheel. Its that easy to get them in place and sized. Now they are all ready for your sim. Now that your controls are all in place, the next step is to get it all connected and functional in your sim. This took me awhile to get right and also took the latest version of P3D with the latest version of FSUIPC with the mouse macro feature added back in to get working 90% correct. I have a few things that are not perfect, but will work to get those correct or you may have a solution for me if you have to get this panel and software. Start up your sim, start the simPluggins Prepar3DV4 software. Click Connect. You controls on the monitor should move and reset to your current conditions. Its that simple when running both the sim and sim plugging all on the same computer. This software does enable you to run the panel software on a separate pc, but they must both be on the same network. I have done this, but it added a second pc and no performance difference on my setup, so it was not worth the additional complexity for me. For others with a lesser machine, you may want to use a second PC to run your controls. If you do this, keep in mind, the panel builder software must run on the second PC, and you run the simPlugins connection software on your flight sim pc to connect the two. Now that the sim and software are connected and your sim is running, its time to get the panels controls working. I have attached some notes in a screen shot below on what I have done. Some of the controls I set to use P3D controls, while many of them I needed FSUIPC to setup. I did have a few toggle switches at the bottom that only P3D would see, not FSUIPC. The issue is that I do not have the option I need in P3D to set it to the functionality in the aircraft, only FSUIPC has this. Its a work in progress to figure this out, but its minimal since its just lighting in the aircraft and not really a big deal to me. This is not a tutorial on how to use FSUIPC as I am not an expert at it, however I know enough to get by and get this panel working. I used two methods to add controls on the panel to FSUIPC which I will detail now: Most controls were easy to add using the standard button+switches. Click or turn the knob on the monitor in the direction that you want to program. Click Select for FS control. Pull down the menu below it that says “Control sent when button pressed”. Select what you want to send in this pull down. This is the more complex option and has to do with mouse clicks. You have to create a mouse macro first, you do this on the left side on that same menu by going into the sim and doing what you want, then back into FSUIPC and saving it off. You will then be able to select this macro in the same pull down as the first option above in 1. This mouse macro will now be attached to your button or knob. The hardest part of programming the controls was finding what you need. Some things took a few google searches to come up with the correct simulation api to use. For example moving the Altimeter knob, you will need to use the Kohlsman Inc and Kohlsman Dec to get this working. Another odd feature is on the artificial horizon. You can use P3D or FSUIPC to control this, however it only changes the control on your panel, not in the simulator. The details on what to use will be on the blueprint I have attached in this review. Now that all your controls are programmed and functioning in the aircraft, its time to take off and use your new panel. Let me say, its great to actually physicallyy touch the knobs and see functionality on the panel and in the sim. An example is aligning your magnetic compass on the heading indicator at startup with the knob on the left of that control. You then set your heading that you want as well with the knob on the right of that control. It all just works. From your 2 Nav’s, your ADF, to starting the plane with your Magneto switch, it all just works and works great. The magneto is a little more work to program as there are 4 locations on the dial to program. Once setup you will find it a pleasure to use. As you can see, I spent a day with the sparks designed “Steve’s Redneck Salvage” A2A C172. I flew from Juneau Alaska to the glaciers and up to Skagway Alaska. It was a fun day in the skies of Alaska exploring with my new Panel from Diagma. I would give the panel 5 starts out of 5 for sure. The construction of the panel is top notch with very nice switches and controls that do not feel like a toy. This panel feels and looks real. Interacting with it in sim is a blast and will take your immersion to a whole new level. For someone who is about to go for their PPL, this panel was a must purchase for me. My goal is to step into a real 172 and feel right at home. This will make that first experience so much easier and familiar. The software gets 4.75 stars out of 5. It would of had 5 stars if there was an option to export your settings to share with fellow simmers. This has been locked out for professional users only, not home users. However I did find a way to copy those settings from one PC to another because duplicating this effort is a pain if you run on multiple machines. PM me if you want the details of how to do this. I hope you enjoyed this first look and review of the Diagma DPPL-1804 Flight Simulator Panel with the Panel Builder for Diagma Panels. My next purchase will be a set of C172 controls. Flying with A10 controls is still fun, but I need a yoke and throttle that feels more c172 like. That review will be next once I get those controls ordered. I am looking at Diagma as well as one other company to fulfill those needs to complete my in home C172.

  13. The Air-Clips.com Team was invited to join Captain Rikard, Senior First Officer Sebastian and First Officer Benjamin on a Boeing 777-200F cargo run from Frankfurt to Tokyo Narita, onwards to Seoul and back to Frankfurt. For each of the three flights Air-Clips.com has created one of the famous ULTIMATE COCKPIT MOVIES which will be released here completely for free in HD quality. This short clip is an exclusive scene from our LH B777 ULTIMATE COCKPIT MOVIE Tokyo-Seoul, available FOR FREE as of August 24th 2018 under this link: https://youtu.be/z9ruG_9NFjI AirClips.com supports the pilot’s profession and all those interested in dedicating their lives to the beauty of flying. In a special series we are reporting about pilot’s training, life and career opportunities in the Lufthansa Group, one of the world’s leading aviation groups. Let us encourage you to consider becoming a future pilot for one of the Lufthansa Group airlines, starting with a thorough training by European Flight Academy (EFA). Did you know that... - Lufthansa Group needs over 500 new pilot students every year for their airlines? - Lufthansa Group gives you access to affordable financing solutions? - pilot’s limitations regarding debility of eye-sight allow a lot more flexibility than you maybe think? - not speaking German does not stop you from joining the Group? - female cadets are particularly encouraged to join? Enjoy our series of clips and films about being trained by and working as a pilot for the Lufthansa Group. Check out their link for more details on how to join: https://www.european-flight-academy.com/en/ Lufthansa Cargo AG is a German cargo airline and a wholly owned subsidiary of Lufthansa. It operates worldwide air freight and logistics services and is headquartered at Frankfurt Airport, the main hub of Lufthansa. Besides operating dedicated cargo planes, the company also has access to cargo capacities of 350 passenger aircraft of the Lufthansa Group. Lufthansa operated a cargo subsidiary, called German Cargo, between 1977 and 1993 (earlier still, cargo operations were executed in-house, under the Lufthansa Cargo name), when -in an effort to restructure the company- the cargo division was re-integrated into its parent, and split up into two parts (one for scheduled operations using Lufthansa-owned aircraft, and one for freight and logistics services using chartered or leased aircraft). Lufthansa Cargo was created as a limited stock company on 30 November 2004, along with Lufthansa Cargo Charter. Lufthansa Cargo uses LH (the same IATA code as Lufthansa), as well as GEC (the former ICAO code of German Cargo) as airline codes. Lufthansa is unique compared to its major European competitors like British Airways and Air France in that the cargo business is organized in an entirely different airline entity. For some years, Lufthansa Cargo (including the freight transported in the cargo holds of mainline Lufthansa passenger aircraft) was the leading cargo airline in terms of international freight tonne-kilometres carried, but has since been surpassed by Cathay Pacific and Korean Air Cargo. The 777 Freighter (777F) is an all-cargo version of the twinjet, and shares features with the -200LR; these include its airframe, engines, and fuel capacity.[146] With a maximum payload of 224,900 lb (102,000 kg) (similar to the 243,000 lb (110,000 kg) of the 747-200F), it has a range of 4,970 nmi (9,200 km). Greater range is possible if less cargo weight is carried. As the aircraft promises improved operating economics compared to older freighters, airlines have viewed the 777F as a replacement for freighters such as the 747-200F, MD-10, and MD-11F. The first 777F was delivered to Air France on February 19, 2009. As of September 2017, 131 freighters had been delivered to 16 different customers, with 30 unfilled orders. Operators had 128 of the 777F in service as of July 2017. In the 2000s, Boeing began studying the conversion of 777-200ER and -200 passenger airliners into freighters, under the name 777 BCF (Boeing Converted Freighter). The company has been in discussion with several airline customers, including FedEx Express, UPS Airlines, and GE Capital Aviation Services, to provide launch orders for a 777 BCF program.SOURCE
