In-Flight Instruments (iOS): Live Instruments Add-on for Infinite Flight


#862

There’s no PC version, unfortunately.


#864

I think this is the wrong tooic… but good to know!

Hi,
This looks really great @epaga! I’m really tempted to purchase this, but one of the main draws is VOR functionality. Does anyone happen to know of a video which demonstrates this functionality in IFI?


#866

Here you go!


#867

This was actually the #1 reason I did this app - I wanted this myself! I love old-school VOR navigation, one of my earliest flight sim memories was on the SubLogic flight sim on my Atari ST as a kid, pinpointing my location using two VOR stations. Magic! :)

Thanks for posting the video, Jan!


#868

@epaga I am planning on buying your PFD unit today, and the landing gear stuff on Saturday.

@Benjwri, this app is amazing and you should really consider purchasing it.


#869

Yeah, proper VOR navigation is one of the biggest things IF is missing in my opinion. Would have bought IFI sooner if I realised it had this.

Thanks for the video @Jan

This is brilliant, have been using it for all my flights for a week now. The only suggestion I would have is an autopilot system similar to that found in commercial airlines, however I realise this app isn’t your top priority right now.
I do need a little bit of support with using it over a network though, so you want me to DM you?


#871

Hi @Jan and @epaga, as far as I can tell, there’s no DME system attached to the VOR instruments, correct? As in, I can’t see distance to/from a VOR/NDB.

If so, can you please pleaaeeeee pleassseeeeeeeee add this. I’ll say it again: pleassseeeeeeeee!

Thanks


#872

Correct!

You know when you’re close to a VOR when the needle starts moving rapidly.

It would be a nice addition though, right @epaga?

Epaga is working on IF-O at the moment (iOS now and Android later) and IF-A (Android) is in need of work as well.
The fact that IF-I unfortunately didn’t really take off, makes chances really slim that epaga will be planning to do more work on it in the future.
But, you never know.


#873

That is SUCH a shame! I really don’t get it. Such a great app with lots of potential. Well, I probably wouldn’t give a limb for it, but would still pay nonetheless.

Maybe it’s worth @epaga doing the rounds, and asking people for feedback to understand why it didn’t take off. I feel there’s so much potential here, maybe it’s worth communicating and interacting with IF users to address this…

Arrrrggggg!!! I just wish I could do proper instrument flights!

Thanks anyway


#874

I totally agree.
I love the app!

It’s an app for the real aviation geeks it seems.

Many might not have an extra device to run it on.

Maybe the ones that call IF a “game” aren’t interested in this level of realism.

It’s a real shame though.


#875

Hey man! Sorry to hear this - could you specify a bit more what doesn’t work? What happens when you start? Are you able to connect to a running instance of IF? Do any of the instruments work, etc.? Thanks!


#876

none of the instruments work, I have IF asistant and it works perfect


#877

#878

I need another device to use IFInstruments ??


#879

Check the top post in this thread for instructions: I would definitely recommend a separate device, but if you have an iPad you can use it in slideover mode.

Let me know if you have further questions!


#880

oh the problem is that I do not have ipad, so I can not use the application


#881

That’s correct, you need either a second device or an iPad to be able to use In-Flight Instruments, like it says in the main post and on the App Store:


#883

is this app available on Android?
