Those three don't have any instruments in the .ist, only the HUD (for nozzle and trim). VGW has no instruments. Trim is present in the default instrument panel when no .ist is specified, however.

Hm, `ELEVTRIM` listed in "YSFlight Handbook", but even myself I don't remember where I found it...

UPDATE: I found it inside YSFlight binary looking via HexEditor ;)

As an addition, "ELEVTRIM" is rectangular instrument (similar to "SPOILER_"), so need to set its bottom left & top right corners coordinates:

Code: Select all

REM Circular indicators,
REM   ???????? x y radius
REM Rectangular indicators
REM   ???????? x1 y1 x2 y2
REM   (x1<x2, y1<y2)

ELEVTRIM -1 0.5 1 2.5
