I'm building a glider simulator with separate visual and instrument displays. Is there a way to get a view without cockpit but with yaw string? Currently the "Full screen no hud" is closest to what I want but it lacks the yaw string. Yaw string is essential instrument for gliders.

No, it appears the default glider yaw string is only available in 3d cockpit view.

Ok. Is there a way to convert this to a feature request? Or any suggested workaround?

I could of course code a plugin for this, but it would be better if it could be supported in the simulator itself.

I have worked around this limitation by creating an empty transparent 2D panel with generic needle instrument showing yaw string dataref. I also made custom graphics for the generic needle instument so it looks right. Not and optimal solution but this is no longer a showstopper issue for our simulator.

I might release the files on later.

Feature request is still valid, it would be good to have this view mode for us cockpit builders.
