Firstly many thanks to Arthur for helping me out with compiling DP in Eclipse, it compiles and launches perfectly - only on my phone so far but hopefully on the cheapo tablet on my new ground station (https://plus.google.com/104380927129515902497/posts/K8NjeNAuoay).
The new HUD was a bit of a shock, I was hoping to add some things to the old one such as a home arrow so I’m not dependent on video/OSD.
The new one looks very smart (and I have only spent a few minutes with the new DP version) but more useful for rotorcraft rather than fixed wing? A ‘traditional’ HUD with altitude and speed ladders can give more information about trends like a rate of climb overlay on an altitude ladder, over/underspeed overlays on the speed ladder. Having done a lot of intrument flying on desktop simulators these features are very useful.
I wonder if there are any plans to make the old HUD still be available? - I’ve had a very quick look at the code and it looks like I could implement an HudUpdatedListner - although this might be beyond my Java skills just now.
My ultimate wish list item could make it all redundant - Synthetic Vision!
