FlightSimBuilder FAQ

Can I use G1000/GNS 530 with planes which have different set of avionics (i.e. G3000) or airliners?
Certainly, this feature sets our products apart from competitors. We have designed all our products with a strong emphasis on flexibility and expandability.

They are universally recognized as joysticks by operating systems such as Windows, Mac, and Linux, allowing users to map various functions to buttons or encoders as desired. Furthermore, our products are compatible with a wide range of flight simulators, including DCS, and offer easy mapping options.

Once you pop out the avionics you would like to use, you would next need to map the functions you would like to use to buttons and knobs on the unit. For X-Plane users, all mapping functionalities are readily accessible through the control menu. However, for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, an additional add-on, such as Mobiflight (which is available for free) or SPAD.NEXT, is required to facilitate the mapping process. We provide a concise instructional video demonstrating this process here FlightSimBuilder G1000 with Mobiflight

What are the required ports for my PC? Each unit requires one HDMI and one USB port for connectivity.

What if I lack sufficient HDMI ports? There are typically two solutions available: Option 1: If your motherboard includes an HDMI port, you can utilize it; however, this port is frequently disabled once a video card is installed. You can re-enable it in the BIOS. Refer to your specific motherboard's instructions for guidance on enabling the built-in HDMI port. Option 2: Consider using a USB to HDMI adapter. It is advisable to invest in a higher-quality adapter, as cheaper alternatives often encounter issues. We can recommend this USB to two HDMI adapter for optimal performance USB to two HDMI adapter

What are the dimensions of the product? Product dimensions and cutout drawings can be found on the respective product page.

Where will my order be shipped? Our processing time varies, ranging from 1 to 10 business days depending on order volume. During the ordering process, the system will provide an estimated delivery date based on the current processing time, which is continuously updated.

Do you offer shipping to XYZ county? What are the shipping times and costs? We provide shipping to nearly all countries. To determine shipping times and rates, simply initiate an order, and the system will calculate the shipping cost and provide an estimated delivery date.

Will FlightSimBuilder avionics be compatible with P3D or FSX? Officially, we offer support for MSFS and X-Plane. However, as all our units function as joysticks, it is possible to configure them for use in P3D. Since not all avionics functions are readily mappable in P3D, you may need to utilize third-party software such as MobiFlight or SPAD.NET to facilitate the mapping process.

Is there an FPS impact and how to minimize it
There is a very small impact typically 1-5fps based on your setup. To minimize the impact you can connect the units to your motherboard instead of GPU. The motherboard ports are usually disabled once you add GPU but you can enable them back in BIOS.

I have received my product, but I am experiencing setup issues or functionality problems. What should I do? For troubleshooting assistance, please follow the provided troubleshooting steps here troubleshooting steps

My units stoped working after MSFS recent update and my sim is crashing. You can start from clearing (temporary) MSFS community folder and reinstalling FlightSimBuilder launcher to see if that helps. If not, sometimes the only thing left is to reinstall MSFS. Unfortunately MSFS updates often causes strange bugs and crashes. Since our add on is a small WASM module which all it does is the mapping, it's unlikely to cause any issues. In fact, we always receive several email after each MSFS update but our launcher was never been a cause of any issues. In most cases, reinstall is the easiest way to go if nothing else works.

I can not get rid of X-Plane bar on top
Unfortunately there is no "full screen" option in X-Plane like in MSFS (ALT+ENT). The only way we know this bar can be removed is by resizing the window to be bigger than the unit screen before moving to the unit. It's a little tricky to do and we are hoping X-Plane add the full screen functionality soon.

Can you please list example of planes which have G1000?
Sure, please see below some of the G1000-equipped MSFS aircraft:

▪️ Cessna 172 Skyhawk (G1000)
▪️ Cessna 208B Grand Caravan EX
▪️ Beechcraft Bonanza G36
▪️ Beechcraft Baron G58
▪️ Cirrus SR22
▪️ Diamond Aircraft DA40NG
▪️ Diamond Aircraft DA62
▪️ Pilatus PC-6
Flight Simulator Bugs / Known Issues
I can't pop out my avionics in MSFS any more 
There seems to be a new bug in MSFS after a recent update where when you pop out the avionics, they "show up" outside of your monitor boundaries. Please find below some of the solutions and hopefully it's something fixed in one of the future MSFS updates.
- The easiest way to fix it is to press ALT+ENT right after you poped out the avionics (even though you can't see them).
- If if didn't work, you can try deleting your your MSFS data by following these steps .
- If it doesn't work, another option is to disconnect all of your monitors after poping out avionics and then connecting only 530 / g1000 unit first before plugging your main monitor back. We found this worked for many folks. 
- If it still hasn't help, the last resort is MSFS re-install. 
I can't pop out my avionics in X-Plane any more 
Delete X-Plane/Output/preferences/Miscellaneous.prf file which has stored the location of the poped out avionics. It will reset it and you should be able to pop it out.
