Flight info

Post Cliff Wimberly »

Help me I have forgot.
What keys must I hit to display flight info ie " Lat Long, airspeed, bearing, etc " at the top of the main screen.
Thanx-Cliff

I'll see that Alt Z and raise you a Shift Z! :D

Cheers,
Nick

P.S. "Alt" will display the top menu bar but Shift Z should show the various info text with the default key mapping.

Haha! I fear that many key commands for FSX/P3D are burned indelibly into my memory Rob, taking up limited space that would be better used for other stuff. But for the various other sims I use (DCS, IL2, MSFS, AFS2, XP11) I'm still pretty clueless.

In VR it's even more fun. Trying to enter dimly-remembered key commands by touch alone can have some erratic results! :mrgreen:

I spoke to soon,
Alt+Z displays/removes the menu bar at the top of the screen ie: flights,aircraft, world, options, views and help.
What I am looking for are the key commands that Displays Lat Long, airspeed, heading and altitude at the top of the screen. It comes up in script form and it was always in red on my computer. Very helpful flying info when one is not flying from inside the cockpit.
Hope this makes since.
Plz help Guys
Thanx Cliff

Cliff, the answer is buried in the cheerful banter :wink:
Nick’s first post corrected my ALT-Z to SHIFT-Z, which is the command to cycle through the red info script options.
