Re: Thursday August 13th - Cross The Pond Long Haul

Ian, the weatherships drift within a 210 SQUARE MILE area, thus approx. 105 miles in any direction. EDIT: Also, remind everyone to review the fuel xfer procedure as you will need to do that when the inboard tanks run dry :) Actually that should be done after takeoff and initial climb to burn down th...

Re: How to use the weathership feature with the default autopilot

The person that wrote the instructions for the Weathership installation on the Connie apparently did not know about the 'window swap'. By modifying only Window05, when someone selects the default AP, the Weathership gauge will disappear, as you found out. To prevent this, the Weathership modificatio...

Re: How to use the weathership feature with the default autopilot

There are 2 panels involved here. The default Window05, which is the radios only and opened with panelID 96 and wimdow11 which contains the radios and the autopilot and opened with panelID 102. Replacing the original Window05 with the Weathership version means that you only have the default radios a...

Re: How to use the weathership feature with the default autopilot

The weathership gauge is passive. It should have no effect on autopilots or visa versa.

Not sure what sort of issue you are seeing.

Re: Thursday August 13th - Cross The Pond Long Haul

I flew portions of the route tonight, from Shannon out to within 100 nm of Juliet. I had the Shannon HF alive, on the schedule all the way out. Its' range encompasses Juliet almost to the western extent of Juliet's coverage. There is a small gap where Juliet's coverage ends and Charlie's coverage be...

Re: Engine RPM mismatch after startup

One tip on slewing. Unless there is absolutely NO input from a joystick axis you will be unable to slew accurately. What you should do is go to the Controls page, select Slew Mode, then REMOVE all entries related to your joystick. Instead, use your NUM PAD to move in slew mode. You can them slew ver...

You should not need these 2 lines: opps....EDITED BELOW ! 16=P1,29,CM1:120,0 -{Macro A2A_L049: L:ApElevatorControl inc}- 17=P1,28,CM1:121,0 -{Macro A2A_L049: L:ApElevatorControl dec} Looking at those lines again after I wrote the rest of this post below I see the problem. The above lines are using y...

Re: Engine RPM mismatch after startup

The implementation is simply to allow for the use of a GPU since no onboard system exists. In real life the FE or pilot would signal to personal on the ground to connect the GPU and apply power. That is how it was done on the C-121J's(L1049's) that I crewed on back in 66/67. The door to the right of...

Re: Sperry AP pitch bug keybinds.

The MCRO files are simply text files with the 'MCRO' extension that informs FSUIPC of the existence of L:Vars...the Local Variables present in the aircraft gauges so that they may be used to read or write to the functions via FSUIPC. Here is a sample of portions of my L-049 MCRO file: [MACROS] 1=L:W...

Re: Engine RPM mismatch after startup

Initially there was a 'GPU' switch on the FE panel but it was removed as the 'GPU', Ground Power Unit, is external to the aircraft. You still have control to turn it on or off through one of the pop-up menus. It should be shut down after Engines 3 & 4 are started and before any attempt to start 1 or...

Re: Sperry AP pitch bug keybinds.

I use FSUIPC to map the AP elevator function to two switched on one of my Saitek throttle quads. I define the functions in my L049 MCRO file: 120=L:ApElevatorControl=INC 121=L:ApElevatorControl=DEC And I am then able to select those functions in the FSUIPC control assignment menu. The assignment loo...

Re: Reverse Thrust

I have small Lua scripts that I use to enter reverse thrust and exit it. To enter I send F1 once and F2 14 times. To exit, I send F3 15 times. You need to send the F3 key to bring the throttles forward out of the reverse thrust condition before you touch the throttle to continue taxiing. I think tha...

Re: Sunday, July 5 MP Flight - Cape Town and Environs

The default FSX scenery for FAYP is a barren background and no parking. Just a runway. Here are a couple of scenery Downloads for FYAP I found on Avsim. FSX versions but appear to work fine in P3DV4. The runway is in a slightly different location between these two files. I am going to use the larger...

Re: June 28th MP Flight - Operation Vittles

I flew the inbound leg again for about the 4th or 5th time. But this time I used the approach into the right hand pattern. I was down to 2000' and about 130 knts IAS as I entered. Made all the turns with a bit of overshoot but was on the altitude marks as I arrived at each turn. Smooth ILS approach ...
