Hi all,

I started to create a 2D-panel for the A320.
First I send this Email to the Users lists, but there I got the hint
to send it to the devel-list.

Here I am

Here is the first shot:

You can download it from :

You also need to install the 747, because the A320-modell refers to it.

But now i got stuck, because I have 3 questions:

 - How can I pass a waypoint to the route-manager with Nasal ?
   (I want to enter the waypoint in the MCDU and pass it via
    Nasal to the route manager)

 - How can I display only a part of the speed ribbon ?

 - How can I improve the fonts ?
   (I am using Linux. I saw in the afternoon, the the fonts are much
   better under windows)

Thank you for help.

PS: Some details of the panel:

Open items:

        - Bad fonts !!!
        - No photo-realistic textures
        - Dokumentation

Primary flight display:
        - speed ribbon
        - altitude ribbon
        - speed marker
        - Vertical speed indictor

 Navigation display:
        - Incomplete LS-Mode
        - No VOR-Mode
        - No NAV-Mode
        - ARC-Mode incomplete
        - No PLAN-Mode

EFIS-Control Panel

FCU- Flight Control Unit:
        - No Speed- and Auto-Throttle
        - No Course-Mode
        - No approach control
