For an aircraft to be fully compatible with RealSimGear hardware, there are two criteria that must be met:

  1. The avionics screens must support pop-out or undocking to allow them to be repositioned to the corresponding RealSimGear hardware screens.
  2. The avionics screens must support removing the bezel graphics to allow only the applicable info to be displayed on the RealSimGear void of surrounding bezels.
  3. The aircraft must make use of standard Laminar commands/dataref's (X-Plane) or SimConnect events/offsets (FSX and P3D).

The following configurations and aircraft have been tested with the RealSimGear hardware, and have been found to be compatible as noted.

X-Plane 11

  • Generally any aircraft that uses the Laminar GNS430/530 or G1000 avionics is fully supported by the RealSimGear GNS430/530, G1000, GFC700 auto pilot, and GMA350 audio panels.  Additionally, use of the Reality-XP GNS430/530 or GTN650/750 software, is fully compatible with the corresponding RealSimGear hardware, regardless of the aircraft being flown.
  • Hotstart TBM900 - This aircraft uses a customized version of the Laminar G1000 software.  As such, it is fully compatible with the RealSimGear G1000 PFD/MFD, GFC500/700, GMA350, and GCU47x.  The TBM900 does make use of custom datarefs and commands, RealSimGear provides a custom CommandMapping file to support.  More info HERE.
  • Aerobask DA62 - This aircraft uses a customized version of the Laminar G1000 software.  As such, it is fully compatible with the RealSimGear G1000 PFD/MFD, GFC500/700, GMA350, and GCU47x.  The DA62 does make use of custom datarefs and commands, RealSimGear provides a custom CommandMapping file to support.
  • vFlyteAir Cirrus SR20 - Currently this aircraft is partially supported, although the author is working to incorporate the Laminar G1000 which will make it fully compatible.  More info HERE.
  • Carenado Cessna 172 (with Laminar G1000) - This aircraft uses a customized version of the Laminar G1000 software.  As such, it is fully compatible with the RealSimGear G1000 PFD/MFD, GFC500/700, GMA350, and GCU47x.  However, when popping out the PFD/MFD, there is no current way to remove the bezel, therefore one has to resize outside of the RealSimGear hardware boundaries.
  • STMA Diamond DA-40 - This aircraft uses the standard Laminar G1000 suite, therefore completely compatible with all RealSimGear products.
  • AFM Mooney Oviation III and Acclaim - The latest version, v4, contains the ability to pop-out the PFD and MFD and uses the standard Laminar G1000 as its base, therefore it is completely compatible with all RealSimGear products.

FSX

  • Generally, when using the Mindstar G1000, GNS430/530 or Reality-XP GNS430/530, GTN650/750 software packages, is fully compatible with the corresponding RealSimGear hardware, regardless of the aircraft being flown.

P3D v3

  • Generally, when using the Mindstar G1000, GNS430/530 or Reality-XP GNS430/530, GTN650/750 software packages, is fully compatible with the corresponding RealSimGear hardware, regardless of the aircraft being flown.
  • Carenado SR22T - This is the only fully supported Cirrus model available today.  It does require the use of the Mindstar G1000 software which provides Cirrus Perspective interface.  As such, it is fully compatible with the RealSimGear G1000 PFD/MFD, GFC500/800, GMA350, and GCU47x.  More info HERE.

P3D v4

  • Generally, when using the Reality-XP GNS430/530, GTN650/750 software packages, is fully compatible with the corresponding RealSimGear hardware, regardless of the aircraft being flown.  Note that the Mindstar G1000 is not v4 compatible, therefore at this time, there are no known G1000 aircraft compatible with the RealSimGear hardware.

Unsupported Aircraft

  • Carenado Phenom 100, X-Plane - This aircraft does not support pop-out windows and uses a custom Carenado G1000 which does not support external commands
  • RWDesign Cessna Citation Mustang, X-Plane - This aircraft uses custom LUA scripting for some of the G1000 and autopilot functionality.  As such, not all RealSimGear hardware will work with this aircraft.  Also, the MFD does not support pop-outs, making the use of a RSG G1000 impractical.  Have reached out to dev for assistance.

Testing Backlog

  • Carenado PC-12 - P3D v3 w/Mindstar
  • Carenado Phenom 100 - P3D v3 w/Mindstar
  • Carenado Phenom 100 - P3D v4 (native)
  • Vertex DA-62 - P3D v3 w/Mindstar
  • Vertex DA-62 - P3D v4 (native)
  • Aerobask Epic E1000/G1000 - X-Plane
