5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent kit, 15 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thrustmaster Replica U.S Air Force MFD Cougar Flight Panel Duo Pack (PC) (Personal Computers)
Good quality kit from Thrustmaster. There is enough info in the other reviews for this - works straight out of the box on Win7 64bit without need for any drivers etc to be manually installed. Have set it up for Falcon 4 bms and it works flawlessly.If you want MFDs with screens, you can buy small TFT displays and the relevant software to use these for that, too (not from Thrustmaster, though).
Some others here have stated that the description is incorrect in that the MFD buttons are not fully programmable, but this is incorrect - they are both easily assignable in-game and are fully programmable in all the usual ways, including using scripts. This is possible by using Thrustmaster's own TARGET software, which can be downloaded from their website, along with templates for making your own label cards.
Not only do Thrustmaster provide this fantastic programming software, they also provide a comprehensive guide on how to write scripts for it, in pdf form. People should really check these things before they make statements in reviews that may sway people's decision on whether to buy.
I really like the fact that the lighting on the buttons can be dimmed to the user's taste, and that the identifier LEDs, which are very bright, can be switched off.
This item is worth every penny, imho, and comes with a 2 year warranty.

Lots of different places - cheapest I found were from Hong Kong at half the 'Western' price. You need to use your search engine. I'd suggest checking out some of the forum articles covering the subject, too, like at cockpit builders, ED/DCS etc. It's very easy to find this info if you look - I just found loads simply by entering "TM MFD screens" in Google ;)
