In-Development Information Display for Logitech Flight Instrument Panel

This application displays data from Elite Dangerous on Logitech(Saitek) Flight Instrument Panels or in a window for VR.

You don't need a Flight Instrument Panel, if you only want to use this for VR.






Use the right rotary encoder to scroll vertically on all tabs.
Use the left rotary encoder to show another card on various tabs or zoom into the galaxy map.
Use S1 to display the menu.

You can also control ONE Flight Instrument Panel with a HOTAS 4-way hat switch with pushbutton.
The joystick is configured via joysticksettings.config

There is a Toggle Window menu option in the tray icon context menu. This option mirrors the FIP display, that is being controlled by the HOTAS hat switch, to a window for use in VR.

If FipSerialNumber in joysticksettings.config has the special value "window", then a separate window is created that is NOT a mirror of a FIP display. This window can then also be resized.

So this window will also work WITHOUT any connected FIP display.

You can then use a tool like OVR Toolkit to display this window in VR.

The 'Engineer' tab is integrated with the material shopping list of the EDengineer application.

The local api must be active in EDengineer and listening on port 44405


The application and source code are here

This sounds like a cool way to use these panels. I’m not sure how many people are aware of these FIPs but they can be found here:


Individually, they aren’t terribly expensive, although for a full sim airplane cockpit they would add up. One or two for ED isn’t too expensive, even with the Elgato stream deck.

I’ve got some of the MFD panels and the Status Display software Robert Maynard developed. It’s really flexible but I’d like to see how the two can be used together.
