I have begun the noble task of teaching myself to fly with (nearly) all the realism switches turned on. I am starting in a PZL P.11c because it has many points in common with a basic trainer (low stall speed, high wing area, fixed gear, etc.)

However, I am stumped by most of the (Polish-captioned) instruments. If anyone can identify the following for me, I'll be grateful. In a more-or-less left-to-right order, the instruments are:

1.) (Brick red) top left, caption CISNIENIE LADOWANIA, units -04, -03, ... 0, 01, ..., 04 kg/cm2.
2.) (dusty pink) below and left of (1). Caption SMAR (tempuratura) units 25, 40, 60, 70, ... 120, 130 degrees C
3.) right of (2). Caption PALIWO, units 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30
4.) below (2). Caption CISNIENIE OLEU, units 0, 5, 10,15
5.) below(3), right of (4). Caption PALIWO, but different numbers than (3) (Sorry, I forgot to write them down when I was running FB at home)
6.) large black gauge below compass (center of panel). caption SZYBKOSCIOMIERZ, units 8, 10, 12, 14, ... 36, 38, 40.
7.) narrow horizontal indicator or slider below (6). Caption SKET
8.) below (7). Slip indicator (I recognized one!)
9) Vertical "thermometer", right of (6) - units -20, -15, ... 10, 15, 20)
10) top right, right of (9) - No caption, units 4, 6, 10, 14, 18, 22, 26, 30
11) below (10) caption WYSCKOSC x 1000 units 0, 1, 2, ... 8, 9
12) right of (11) - 12-hour clock?

I have some speculations based on experience -
11) seems to be the altimeter (but no hundreds hand!), (6) is probably the airspeed indicator (but then what is (10), which gives almost the same numbers?) The "thermometer", (9) appears to be either angle of attack or rate of climb, but which is it? What pressure does (1) show, and why does it have both positive and negative numbers?

Any authoritative help will be appreciated!

1. Manifold pressure
2. Oil temp.
3. Fuel
4. Oil pressure
5. Fuel
6. Speed
7. Angle meter (?)
8. U re right
9. Rate of climb
10. Dont have a reference right now
11. Alt

I could be wrong with pos 1.

Happy landings http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Many thanks!

I'm encouraged that both gauges labeled 'CISNIENIE' are types of pressure, and that both 'PALIWO' gauges are fuel.

Does this mean that my Pizzle has 2 fuel tanks?
