    Problem with the INS position update

    It's impossible to update the INS during the Atlantic Crossing, there is no VOR/DME to use, the better you can do is to update it (and keeping it updating) at the last VOR you pass nearby before starting the Atlantic Crossing, and to re-update it once again when you're arriving in the other side of the Atlantic, with the first nearest VOR. You're welcome
  2. Ho acquistato questo fantastico aereo, e ora le long haul le volo praticamente solo con lui... Essendo fortemente legato alla storia di Alitalia, mi pesa un pò che la livrea non sia fornita, ma è anche comprensibile visto che Alitalia non ha mai avuto in flotta i DC-8 serie 50, solo i 40 ed i 60... A questo punto ho una domanda: E' possibile che Aerosoft sviluppi, considerando che è già presente la consistente base del 50, anche la versione 60? Un saluto, e buon volo a tutti!

    Problem with the INS position update

    These are the steps that i follow to update my INSs systems: 1: i Set the knob in the WAYPOINT position 2: i set the Waypoint little wheel in 1 position 3: i press simultaneously 7 and 9 keys (clicking first on 7 with right mouse button and than 9 ever with right mouse button) <-- At this point the Display shows 0es in latitude and longitude 4: i instert latitude pressing before the north (2) or south (8) buttons, according to my latitude, and insert. 5: i insert the longitude pressing before the west (4) or east (6) buttons, according to my longitude, and insert. 6: inserted latitude and longitude, i press simultaneously keys 3 and 9 <-- Again, 0es appears in the Display --> 7: I press 2 or 8 button, both are useful for the same thing, and than i insert the altitude of the VOR rounding to 5 (if the VOR is 1200fts high, i simply press 1 to indicate 1000fts, if is 1700fts high, i press 2 to indicate 2000fts, if is 12500 high, i press 12 to indicate 12000fts), and i press insert. 8:I press 4 or 6 button, both useful again for the same thing, and i insert the frequency of the VOR (if it's 113.00, i press 1, 1, 3, 0, 0), then insert <-------------------> At this point all informations are inserted in the INS to update<----------------> 9: i Turn the Knob to the DISTANCE position 10: I Set the VOR frequency in the NAV radio corrisponding the INS that i'm updating (if INS1, i set the frequency in NAV1, if INS2, i set in NAV2), assuring the radio capture the frequency and shoes in the DME indicator the distance from/to the VOR. 11: i check if the distances in the DME indicator and in the INS are similar (for example, 44nm in the DME indicator and 46 in the INS, they're near each others) 12: I turn the knob again in the WAYPOINT position, than i press WAYPOINT CHANGE key in the middle of the INS, and than i press 1 (that is the waypoint corrisponding the DME station i inserted, concerning the waypoint wheel at step 2) 13: i turn the Knob in DSRTK/STS position, and than i press the 4 Key <-------------At this point on the right display appears 000004--------------> 14: Finally i press insert button Now my INS is starting to update, and i will see the progress in the decimal decreasing gradually to 1 Hope i wrote all correctly and i've been exhaustive, good luck!

    Problem with spoilers

    Hi, i'm having issues with my spoilers on the DC-8: i can't extend its during flight, for example, during the descent to the destination airport... i opened the operational manual and i saw that the hydraulic system that manage the spoilers is shared with the one of the landing gear, so when the landing gear is retracted, the spoilers doesn't recive any hydraulic pressure, but i also saw that they've a switch that can override this situation, so during a test flight i tried to set the switch in override mode, hydraulic pressure increased till 3000psi as the operational manual says, and then i tryed to deploy its (i were at 185 knots stable at 4000 feet), but nothing appened, when pressing the "ù key" used in FSX to deploy spoilers, they don't move, i can just arm them... There is something i'm missing or forgotting? Thank you in advance

    Problem with spoilers

    Ok, i just tested the reverse thrust of engines 2 and 3 during flight, it works! they gave you a very poor deceleration, but at least it works and help a bit... I understood thanks to your comments guys, and some internet researches, that the plane has only ground spoilers that can assume 2 positions, full up, and full down, and can only be engaged with the landing gear deployed... so the reverser takes the taks of the modern speed brakes. Regarding the post of @PMSoares, thank you for the advice! I'm just flying a leg from Dubai International to Rome Fiumicino on IVAO, and i will test this calculation to help me in my descent. Thank you all again guys!

    Problem with spoilers

    So the only way to reduce speed during descents is to use the reverser of the engines? I never thought that was a possible to do that! But i will have to do it, i'm tyred of program my descents 50/70nm prior of the TOD, either with low vertical speed such -1500fpm and the throttles in idle the speed increases so fastly! Thank you guys, i will test it tomorrow...

    Repaints, livery requests, repaint support

    I quote Gerbilsk for the Classic Alitalia Livery also, and yes, Alitalia had also the 50 version of the DC-8; it would be great, thanks!
