will it be available for chrome?
As in ChromeOS?
PanelNinja is currently a desktop app for Windows or Mac OS rather than a browser-based app.
If the ask is for a Chrome OS version, we are considering a Linux version which could work on many Chrome OS devices that can run Linux applications but at this time something dedicated for Chrome OS isn’t in the roadmap.
If, however, the ask is about replicating this functionality within an actual browser, we would be interested in knowing the use case where a browser solution would work but a stand-alone Mac/Windows app would not.
Happy to receive any suggestions/input.
Thank you very much!
Thanks for your kind words, we hope you all enjoy using our new software!
Just a quick update that a new version of PanelNinja is available on the Windows and Mac app stores.
Among other changes, this update adds a new feature which displays your current aircraft type on your flight instrument panel and – if you have created a flight plan – also displays your origin and destination airports. It also contains performance and stability enhancements.
Thanks for your kind words - @likeablegeek and I are very glad to hear you like it!
We will take that onboard and consider it for our near term roadmap. Stay tuned for updates!
Congrats on the launch, I excited to have a look and incorporate this into my flights !
Just a quick update that a new version of PanelNinja (version 1.0.11) is available on the Windows and Mac app stores.
Among other changes, this update adds a couple of new features based on user feedback:
- The map instruments now plot your flight plan along with tracking your flight’s progress
- There is a choice of two default Heading instruments based on magnetic and true heading respectively
This release also contains performance and stability enhancements.
We would love to get user feedback on what they like (or not) about PanelNinja to learn what works well and what improvements and new features would be useful to the user community. Please feel free to suggest new features and improvements here in the Infinite Flight Community forum or through our support desk.
Since PanelNinja’s release in December 2021, we’ve been making regular updates leading up to an upcoming major release, and as a result, PanelNinja has reached a significant milestone: 500 installs on MacOS alone!
We are incredibly grateful to the community for using PanelNinja, and we are excited to continue bringing you more features and improvements with every update.

I’ve played around with it a bit and one suggestion that I have and maybe I missed it, but perhaps an airspeed indicator for those faster aircraft would be nice. Right now, I think it’s using a 172 airspeed indicator. But when you fly a 737 or Airbus for example, you peg out that indicator just about at V1.
An indicator like this would be great.
You are correct, our default instruments are fairly standard GA instruments, some of which are derived from a Cessna 172. The key point is we’ve built an open framework for extending PanelNinja by allowing anyone to create instruments of their own and expand their own library or share them with the community as they wish.
If you are curious how this works, check our our support documentation here.
That being said, we’ll add this to our feature request list, and we plan to open a public trello for anyone to contribute ideas in the near future, and we will add this one!
For those who haven’t seen the announcement yet, we are readying a major update to PanelNinja and are opening invitations to the beta programme:
The next version has several key new features:
- Joystick support - PanelNinja will let you use a joystick connected to your Windows or Mac OS device to control Infinite Flight with a joystick or similar controller while simultaneously using the live flight instrument display
- Performance enhancements - the next version of PanelNinja implements an updated architecture that improves the rendering performance of the instruments
The beta is initially for MacOS. If you are interested in joining, read the announcement and then let us know you are interested.
This looks awesome!
That’s huge! That could be the first fully functional joystick “connector”
Thanks for the support. We’re doing our best to produce an effective app with each iteration.
