Default Ikarus

Let me introduce you today Ikarus. For the average user, there is a easy way to build a virtual cockpit. For many modules, we already offer a solution.

You get pre-configured solutions for the DCS modules:

• A-10A
• A-10C
• BF-109-K
• F-15C
• F-5E
• F-86F Sabre
• FW-190D9
• KA-50
• L-39C
• L-39ZA
• Mi-8MTV2
• MiG-15Bis
• MiG-21Bis
• MiG-29A
• MiG-29G
• Mig-29S
• P-51D
• SU-25
• SU-27
• SU-33
• TF-51D
• UH-1H

All these configurations are customizable.

And the best is, Ikarus is open source. Have fun.

Thanks to the whole team and the beta tester.



If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Works flawlessly in DCS. A bit buggy in the configuration side, but once you learn to work with them it is great.

Do you have a video or pictures to demonstrate what this is and how it works. Is this similar to helios or something like mmjoy?

That explains what it is and the intentions but doesn't show Ikarus in use or displayed. I think either a video of it working or screens of how it works or how to work it would convince someone who doesn't know a lot about cockpit interfacing.

Well I'd rather see what it looks like and how it functions before downloading it to try it out. A teaser or tutorial of sorts. Not judging at all just would like to actually SEE Ikarus in action first.

Thanks for sharing, looks promising.
Does this extract mfd's, cdu's and the likes as well?

I would say it is similar to Helios, some things are better some things might be less. I.e. export instruments/gauges and indicators to a second monitor or client.
You still need to export viewports for radars and MFD´s etc. though.

I consider it easier to configure than Helios, but that is probably very much a personal thing.

Here is a thread with some images from a MIG-15 profile I have been working on. If you are used to Capt Z profiles in Helios you might think a stock Ikaurs profile looks poor when it comes to looks, but it is possible to add layers of gfx on top of it and customize it as you like.
