The HELIMOD Mark II in this configuration comprises three 60inch monitors in portrait mode providing an excellent vertical Field of View (FOV) which is essential for helicopter training. A simple instrument panel was added along with a PFC Garmin 530. Since this device uses the real Garmin software, it has 100 percent functionality.

By loosening off just four bolts, the whole instrument panel can be removed from the rails and replaced with another aircraft-specific module. All of the electronics and logic required for the instrument panel are contained within the cowling and are completely independent of the main base unit. Modules can be changed over in minutes.

The cyclics and collectives are also interchangeable.
