Ok, I will re-read the rules…it looks like others are interested in this thread besides me. I’m generally a rule follower, no worries.

It's the same with the little autopilot wheels or rockers...push/roll "up" to move the nose down. It basically follows the convention of moving any switch or control from a horizontal console, angled console to a vertical panel...so everything moves and inidcates the same regardless of the angle to which it's mounted.

Also, I think most any of the EFIS systems can be run in a demo or simulaor mode, including the G3X.

Not to do a debate on this, but in my Mooney 201, the elevator trim is actuated nose-down with an "up" push on the yoke trim switch, or a "roll forward over the top" on the trim wheel and nose-up with a "down" push on the switch or a "roll backward over the top". I think this is pretty standard among all aircraft makes, right? But the Mooney trim indicator goes "up" for nose up and "down" for nose down (it's a linear scale with a pointer). I think it's perfectly intuitive. The indicator on my old Warrior II also moved "up" (forward) for "nose up" and "down" (backward) for "nose down." I didn't realize that there were aircraft that used a different convention than Mooney and Piper seem to.

I just sent an email to Real Sim Gear.

support@realsimgear.com

There is such a strong need for some sort of G3X Touch simulator.
Glad this has shown me an option to email a potential supplier.
