    Default Panel View

    Thanks for the advice.

    Default Panel View

    When I load the A320 in P3Dv4 the deafault panel view is 'Virtual Cockpit'. My preference view is CP Main Panel. Could someone point me in the direction of altering a .cfg to have this view loaded automatically and save me from having to fiddle with menus. Thanks

    Fuel Planner

    I have taken another look at my settings and they are set correctly in Pounds and not KGS. I have some screen shots below . If I'm missing something I would be happy to change it to reflect the correct weight standard. I am currently manually changing the figure in the 'Block' field to the correct value. I should also add that I am using the click on empty field option then click again to isnert the value shown on the scratchpad.

    Fuel Planner

    When I load the information from the Fuel Planner into the A320IAE from a loadsheet it shows 23.98 thousand pounds of fuel. The FOB shows the correct amount but when transferring data into the MCDU from the loadsheet data it reduces the figure to the Kg value - i.e. 10.0 or thereabouts. I thought I had seen something on this recently but may have been mistaken as I cannot find it searching the forums. If it is a known issue, all good and well but if not then it needs to be raised as one. Thanks
  5. This comment related to the CFM engine variant so is not relevant.
  6. I may be having the same issue with the IAE model. I set up everything according to correct procedures and had a FLEX of 67 in the MCDU. Take off commenced and I rotated at the calculated speed and correct rate. Within seconds of lift off speed started to decay rapidly and I was forced to firewall the throttles and drop the nose to maintain level flight until speed was sufficient to recommence climbout. When speed was sufficient and positive rate was achieved I retracted the undercarriage and set the Autopilot. The aircraft accelerated to 250knts and continued to climb at a satisfactory rate. This not the first time I have had this problem and I can't be certain (and I certainly could be wrong) but it may have started when the IAE taxi rate was altered to slow taxi speed down under idle throttle conditions.

    Looks like it's fixed. Thank you.

    Landing Gear

    If this is not an issue for Aerosoft - just say so and I'll be on my way but don't leave it hanging.

    Download Server

    Any idea when the download server issues will be resolved? Thanks
  10. Flying the A320 IAE model. On approach the landing checklist indicated all was ready fro touchdown but the landing gear indicators displayed UNLK and not the expected three greens. Looking outside the gear was down. When the aircraft landed it rolled out as expected but there was no nose steering and visually the main gear looked like all the tyres were flat - about a third sunk into the runway. I changed the selected aircraft to a default aircraft then reloaded the A320. Now the three greens are showing, the main gear is not a third sunk into the runway surface and nose steering is returned. Thanks Andy b
  11. Have you tried both variants of the A319 - CFM and IAE? Also, what about different models within engine variant? May have no relevance but is just a thought.

    Online wind

    I guess I didn't see the issues as the same thing. In any respect why does it work for one plan and not another when both are generated from the same source? I won't bother you again.

    Online wind

    Well, I have a flightplan in the A3XX Flightplans folder and a weather file in the PMDG/WX folder both created by Simbrief. I have tried to download the wind a get nothing. I have tried removing the flightplan and manually entering exact waypoints in the MCDU and still get nothing. I have reinstalled all the legacy Simconnect files from the Redis folder and get nothing. PMDG T7 loads both the flightpland and wx files. Just to check I have copied a flightplan and weatherfile from the Airbus Extended flightplans and PMDG/WX folders in P3D v3 into the correct folders for P3D v4 and the files load into the A319 correctly and so does the weather. The two examples below were both created in Simbrief. The first one - YPAD/YSSY loads both plan and weather. The second one - NZAA/NZCH loads the plan but no weather.

    MCDU loses track of flight

    Hello I downloaded the route from 'RouteFinder', imported it into 'Little NavMap' and generated a .flp file using the exporter into the A3XX Flightplans folder. I then uploaded it into the MCDU and flew the route with the outcomes described in my first post. I suspect the .flp exporter may have been for use with the Airbus Extended. I will make a comment on the Avsim forum for Alex to have a look at the output. Since reading your comments I generated a flightplan in the Company Route Editor using the same source - 'RouteFinder' and then flew it once more earlier today with no repeat of last evenings issues. I have an account with Simbrief, have reactivated it and will use it in future. Just need to update the Navigraph data and all should be good to go. Thanks once again for your prompt attention. Best regards.
