We have to switch things on now?! What is this, a simulator?
Amazing, thank you developers. This is now a dream to fly, just hoping the longitude can now be given access to by WT with the partnership, and given the same treatment with vnav etc…
That’s an excellent point.
As WT are effectively going to be working with Asobo, hopefully they’ll be given full access to the otherwise locked Deluxe and Premium Deluxe aircraft and be able to give them a bit of a freshening up.
- Fixed bug with Pilot Waypoint storage that could cause errors for users adding waypoints to the data store for the first time
- Fixed missing STAR transition legs when selecting a VFR runway for landing instead of a published approach
- Fixed a bug with the autopilot update loop that could occasionally cause LNAV or VNAV to stop responding
- Made adjustments to LNAV turn anticipation in certain turn types
- Fixed bug that prevented the correct hold entry type from being updated when changing inbound course and turn direction
- Fixed bug where AP dives to pre-select altitude when VNAV is disabled while in PATH mode
- Fix behavior when a flight plan change causes PATH recalculation while in PATH mode - will now go to ALT and attempt to re-arm PATH
Could be a silly question so don’t bite my head off.
Just did a flight with the v0.11.3 mod and got a fuel imbalance warning shortly after TOC. Had to pump from right to left tank.
Completely new to me, don’t understand why it happened or know how to avoid it.
Might you have:-
a) loaded the fuel asymmetrically?
b) started one engine running for a long time before the other?
c) only started one engine? (i know, but )
d) accidentally switched the fuel transfer on?
e) have a throttle lever for each of the engines and one is set higher than the other?
I’m guessing you’re probably pretty sure that none of the above apply, so does this happen on every flight or was it just a one-off?
Thanks for your quick reply.
Since when do RW pilots have to check something like that?
I think I only moved the total fuel slider from 50% down to 40 about 40%.
No. Since when can lazy RW pilots not quickly start both engines without watching gauges to monitor how they run up?
So you know I am female?
No. I’m sure because I had to switch both engines off after floating down the runway.
No, I did not (although I have been accused of pulling out the mixture knob so I can hang my handbag somewhere)
I only have one throttle lever on my Saitek (it’s where I hang my handbag)
Pretty sure that none of the above apply but not certain because I am female. It only happened once and I am assuming no-one else has reported it so probably a Female Fault.
Will report it if it happens again.
Thank you, Sir.
I’m really curious as to how you gathered from my post that i was somehow being misogynistic?
You were a fellow pilot asking a question and I tried to help. It was you that brought gender into the conversation. It is quite ironic how you implored responders not to “bite your head off”.
Sorry I couldn’t help and good luck with finding someone brave enough to try to provide future assistance. That is, if getting a solution was your reason for posting.
Hey stop. I was only joking and making fun of myself. No way did I even want to hint or imply that you were misogynistic.
Honestly, I did once try to hang my handbag on the choke knob of a car. My husband still pulls my leg about today.
So thanks for your help and I am sorry if I caused a misunderstanding. Will have to watch where I try to be humorous.
Sorry for misinterpreting your post.
It looks like i need to chill a bit and maybe read a little more carefully.
I think I had a sense of humour at some point in my life.
After my first post, i actually took the CJ4 up, to see if there is anything else that might lead to one tank using fuel more than the other. There are a few pairs of buttons, but none of the operational ones seemed to do it.
No problem. I should probably added more smileys or got my husband to write the post. He could have mentioned a few other embarrassing moments in my life. Hint: checking your lipstick in the mirror whilst driving is not always a good idea.
Yup my good lady wife does that too. Not that i’m stereotyping of course.
Isn’t the VNO (the “red zone”) speed limit a bit low ? It starts beeping loudly once you go over 260 kt or something like that. Note that in the external view, the VNO speed limit is reached at 305kt so there is an inconsistency here.
edit: it looks like the speed limit isn’t fixed but depends on some conditions I don’t know.
A little help please !
Sigh !! , With WT11.3b, i was hoping that there would be a way OR BUTTONS lit up to tell which of the AP buttons were engaged ( lit up like in the glass cockpit of Cessna Longitude).
Short of hovering the mouse over the buttons , OR looking at the top of the PFD, Is there a quick way to tell which buttons have been engaged?
Especially on TakeOFF, I keep forgetting to turn the Yaw Damper On,
Unfortunately there isn’t. Just like in the real aircraft
The YD is automatically turned on with the AP, if that’s of any help to you.
Also YD is usually set to the OFF position during TakeOff and Landing when AP isn’t switched ON.
The max speed is dependent on altitude and airplane configuration (i.e. flaps and gear). So when you extend the first setting of flaps / slats, the redline will come down to 230kts. This is to help prevent exceeding the flap limitation. If you zoom in to the placard above the MFD, it will list the various speed limits.
I’ve experienced this too- not sure why- I was told it was because I should be using mach speeds above a certain altitude. Not convinced though…
