GA Radio Stack
External General Aviation Radio Stack for Flight Simulator and Prepar3D
GA Radio Stack is a friendly application thought to be used in a monitor separated from the main window of Microsoft Flight Simulator, is a good complement to GA Panel.
Special for homebuilt cockpits or simulator enthusiast who wants to expand their hobbies. It is also valid for teaching.
Includes eight essential avionic devices.
For more information please read the help manual attached to the program once installed. (PDF File) or download it at the download page.

- First: Similar to KFC 225, adapted to Flight Simulator (with armed modes and more options).
- Second: Generic autopilot (Flight Simulator Style, all options available and armed modes differenciation).
- Fixed size: 600x1024. Can be reduced hidding devices.
- Note: New graphic cards allow to rotate the screen 90º, NVidia and ATI do it.
- Many ways to change the values: mouse, keyboard (with different ways to do it).
- Multilingual. User editable language file (Currently available: English, Spanish).

It is the easy solution but with decrement of performances and the loss of keyboard focus.
It is recommended due to isolation of CPU loads and individually use of keyboards, but it needs two computers, the LAN and the configuration of WideServer/WideClient.
