Panel Builder is an add-on Instrument package that allows the creation of custom Instrument Panels to interface with various flight simulators. The instruments can be run on the same computer as the flight simulator, or on a networked additional computer. For Panel Builder to run on the same computer, a powerful processor (Intel i7) and a high end graphics card have to be available.
Most instruments contain a configuration option that is accessible via a settings menu option. This is used for setting ranges and/or color bars on the instrument. This enables using the same instrument for a slow piston powered airplane or a high performance turbine powered airplane.
