NDB with .5 in frequency?

Recommended Posts

I tried an NDB ils approach to rwy 30 at Cardiff this evening and found I could not tune the NDB in the Twin Otter as there is a 0.5 in its frequency. Is there an update or fix for this?

We have no plans for that as the simulator itself does not yet support it.

Note that the real aircraft with that receiver would also not be able to use that frequency.

Thanks, that's interesting Mathijs.  I suppose in real life ATC provide vectors to the ils, or GPS is used. Odd for a plane that operates in some pretty remote airfields though.

Was there not a hot fix for this? I think my ADF radio cycles between the 0 and 0.5 frequency by itself as a workaround. In other words, you tune the whole frequency and then if you watch the radio it cycles between the two values every half-second or so.

Hi Mark, I've just realised who you are.  I have enjoyed watching your videos on the Twin Otter; fantastic cockpit.

Hold on, I was wrong, it the .33 that the sim can't do.5 should work.
Will try to find the fix for this, I do remember it vaguely.

Hah, thanks! I have tried to attach the hotfix zip file here. This is not my work, it is just a saved copy of the official hotfixes that used to be posted here.

Thanks for that Mark. This is just copied over the the existing panel directory in \Airplanes\Aerosoft_DHC6_300_WHEEL, or any of the other types; replacing any files prompted?

 

Thanks

I bought your book a while ago, I must dig it out again now i've started to fly this again.

Yes, I think so. But maybe make a copy your existing folders first just to be sure. BTW I have seen reference to a hotfix 4, so I hope that's not the one you need :(

 

Good job on the book ;)

I found hotfix 4 as well. Wise advice, I always make copy. What could possibly go wrong 🙂
