I have created a tutorial package around Dirk Fassbender and Antti Pankonen's wonderfull AS532 Helikopter Autopilot Gauge for FSX
My tutorial package can be downloaded from the file libraries of:
- www.flightsim.com
- www.avsim.com
(I'm still waiting on www.hovercontrol confirmation)

FILENAME: fsx_hap_gauge_tutorial.zip Size: 30,751,628 Date: 06-28-2015

Description of the package contents
This is an installation tutorial and 5 training missions package designed to get the maximum amount of fun out of the Helikopter Auto Pilot (HAP) gauge created by Antti Pankonen (the programmer) and Dirk Fassbender (the graphic designer). This package contains six crystal clear documented PDF's with lots of information about installing this gauge in every helicopter panel, basic helicopter and HAP functions, five training missions that take you through all the various aspects of this autopilot gauge, so you can fully master this HAP-gauge and enjoy it to the max. By Ronald Vermeij.

QUESTION:
Will you let me know what you think of it?

Will take a look at it, very familiar with the gauge and have it in all my FSX helos. I just need to change some of the basic settings, ie 80kts IAS on the take off verse the programmed 75kts.

Ronald,

Downloaded your tutorial.  Let me say great job buddy, its well laid out and easy to understand and goes into a lot more depth than anything I have seen from even the creators of the gauge.

It looks like it would have taken you quite some time to put it together as well, so once again good job.  Very much appreciated.

Hi Ronald, have downloaded your tutorial and found it quite easy to understand and follow; thankyou especially for the training missions. There are a couple of files mentioned elsewhere in the forum i.e. HAPX.dll and HAP.cfg and an entry to be added to dll.xml which is in the Users/name/appdata/roaming/Microsoft/FSX folder. As your tutorial does not mention these I am wondering what they are for and indeed if they are necessary? The forum is also unclear about the two gauges as532afcp.gau and ec225afcp.gau which as far as I can tell are quite similar except that ec225afcp shows "switches" (that work but do not actually move) whilst as532afcp shows buttons (that work but would be better if they lit up). I am wondering if it might be timely to update the tutorial installation section? Big ask I know especially coming from a new member so please fell free to "tell me where to go" if I am being a tad presumptious :)

Bit harsh mate. I post my "cryings" in their specific sub forums rather than create one big cry in a sub forum that is not relevant. I have only posted two "crys" in this forum, you make it sound like a lot more! My "cry" about topic headings is in the General section where it belongs and my "cry" regarding Ronald's excellent tutorial is in his section where it belongs. And, I emphasise Ronald's specific request "Will you let me know what you think of it?" so all I have done is to comply with his request.  My statement "tell me where to go" is directed at Ronald, not you. If your reply is indicative of what I can expect from this forum then I am probably better off elsewhere. ???

1. Yes, they are required, as explained in the AP documentation.

2. Two different gauge styles so that you can choose which one "fits" your cockpit panel/sense of style best.

3. Ronald has nothing to do with the gauge design (switches/buttons/lights)

4. The buttons do not really need to light up as you have an Annunciator.

5. Yes, probably
