RealSimGear GNS 530 Unboxing

Jarrod of RealSimGear was very kind in sending me a beta unit of the new GNS 530 he is offering. Unlike other GPS 3D-printed build-your-own kits, the RealSimGear unit is complete and ready to plug into your X-Plane sim. Here’s the unboxing, and I’ll have a full video review up as soon as I’ve got it in the sim and have given it a few flights. Already this morning I’ve plugged in and configured the unit. I can tell you that this unit running the RealityXP GNS 530 plugin is JUST LIKE the real thing. I’m mounting it in the panel now and a full review will follow, and I hope to use the unit during the PilotEdge flight later today.

  1. Looks Great!!

    I would Love to see a GTN 750 unit offered!

    That and Reality XP’s GTN 750 software would be the ultimate.

  2. Do you use this with VR at all?
    Was thinking it would be ok since you have the tactile feedback of the buttons and dials (as long as you know where it is in your physical space).
    Then you can see the screen within VR but not have to use the fiddly dials with the Oculus touch controller.

    You think it would be more appropriate for VR use over a touch screen/iPad emulating say the GTN750?
