    Great repaints, although the N171DZ, N176DZand N16065 have textures for default PW engines instead of default GE engines. There are no default GE engines textures in this pack.
  1. Using the keyboard, instead of an axis, I get: handl postn Flap UP: 0.000 0.000 Flap 15/0: 0.2500 0.2500 Flap 15/15: 0.5000 0.5000 Flap 15/20 0.7500 0.7500 Flap 30/40 1.000 1.000 So it seems like it might be a response curve issue, do folks use a linear response for the flap axis, or you you use a 'stepped' response curve?
  2. Using the Default Flap 'handl' & 'postn' datarefs, here are the axis readings I see on a ground test: handl postn Flap UP: 0.000 0.000 Flap 15/0: 0.2694 0.2694 Flap 15/15: 0.4843 0.4843 Flap 15/20 0.7618 0.7618 Flap 30/40 0.9472 0.9472 So flap position IS being moved to the selected flap. Which suggests it isn't the axis causing the issue.
  3. Hi There, Many Thanks for getting back on this issue I'm struggling with. I tried it again earlier this week and got the same behavior. The speed is below 160knots when descending on the G/S; in the most recent occasion (Toulouse ILS 23L, LDG WT:136.4t) I was stable at 164knots, Flaps 15/15 tracking the LOC at 3000ft . Then one dot below the G/S, selected gear down, reduced MCP Speed to vAPP (138) and extended the flaps to 30/40. I disengaged A/P and A/T at 1000ft. The 'Too Low Flap' call was starting at 300ft AGL. I did notice the green bar on the speedtape on the PFD didn't reduce from 164kts to vAPP (138kts), which does suggest a flap extension issue, even though the lever on the pedestal (in the sim) was in the 30/40 position. I use a Saitek quadrant and that has a 'keypress detent' at the bottom end of the Flap axis; so I wonder if reaching that portion of the axis stops the flaps extending to full. I'll certainly try removing the axis and using key commands to raise lower flaps on the next flight. BTW is there a dataref which could I could monitor to validate what the actual current flap setting is? It would be helpful to have that reading in view when troubleshooting in the pattern. Best Rgds, Chris.
  4. hi there, I confirm the asterisk is next to the 15/20 setting. In later airbus systems the asterisk is used for an unselected option which can be selected (i.e. the A32x MCDU APPR page LDG Conf: "FULL" and "CONF 3*" when Full is enabled) (e.g. symbology on the APPR page fo the A32x MCDU) Also the Flap lever in the sim is fully extended, and speed was below 160knots (in case the A300 has some kind of 'flap load relief' system). Many Thanks, Chris. Enjoying the Vintage Airbus experience (as a child of the eighties) P.S. As a workaround, is there a way to inhibit these GPWS warnings in the inibuilds A300/A310?
  5. Hi there, In my first few flights in the iniBuilds A300v2 I find I'm getting the 'Too Low Flap' playing during every landing (after disengaging the A/P and A/T from a single channel ILS approach at around 1000ft) the 'too low flaps' audio always starts playing at around 100ft and I wonder if there's something specific I might be missing. The Approach page in the MCDU is filled-out, Gear is down, Autobrakes set to low, Speed Brake armed, Flap lever set to '30/40' and GPWS Landing Slats/Flaps Switch is set to '30/40' It seems that on the flap indicator, the white stripes don't go right to the bottom though, is that normal for full slats/flaps? Also Vapp is within the 'hollow red area' of the speed tape, which seems to suggest the flaps might not be fully extended, despite the lever position (above). But, Just to check - does the asterisk next to the 15/20 on the Approach page mean that the 30/40 is selected; or does the asterisk highlight the selected flap mode? It seems convention in the MCDU is that an asterisk is used to identify a 'selectable' item, not a 'selected' item. Any ideas or insights would be greatly appreciated. Many Thanks, Chris.
  6. That's awesome. Many Thanks, Chris.
  7. FYI, The SAM Jetways are in need of fixing, currently they stretch across to connect with aircraft on neighbouring gates. It can be fixed by modifying the SAM parameters to limit the movement (rotation and extension) of jetways as appropriate to prevent this issue. Many Thanks, Chris.
