    Saab 340 stability landing?

    Hi Stuart, I’m currently using this aircraft to get through my type rating and it is fairly realistic to the actual aircraft. The actual aircraft has a lot of Dutch roll characteristics at low speed and we use yaw damper until about 1000’ Aileron control at low speed is quite unresponsive so I can give you our procedures for approaching and maybe it will help. The engine will cut out with hard landing. Try to approach at 135 kts and land at vref (reference speed over the threshold) at no less than 124kts with 20 degrees of flap. Flap 35 will help to stabilise more if that’s still an issue, but at these speeds it should be manageable. As the aircraft is so much more realistic than a lot of others, if you need to, try changing the joystick settings on whichever axis is causing problems. Hope this helps

    LES SAAB 340 LP Bleed and Recirc Not Selectable

    You're right Goran. X-Mission seems to be the one doing it, however, I was sure it did it intermittently before so will continue to test and let you know anything that comes up.

    LES SAAB 340 LP Bleed and Recirc Not Selectable

    Hi Goran, I've attached a video. It started about the time of the 1.30 X-Plane Beta release. I downgraded to the non-beta version at the time but still had the problem. Also on startup, I get a lot of hot starts now.. I don't believe I've changed anything that would affect it (certainly haven't changed anything within the Saab files themselves). The screen recording shows the recirc left fans being switched on but the right side doesn't work. Same with the LP bleeds. Once it's been started for a while (or sometimes it needs takeoff/cruise power), the ability to use the right side comes back. Screen Record 2019-02-05 at 14.58.01.mov
  5. Hi all, just wondering if anyone has experienced a problem with the right-hand side LP bleed and recirc not being selectable after engine start. I'm using it for type endorsement practice, and after engine start I can't select these switches. Usually they become accessible after the power has been applied (like after take off)or in the climb/cruise. Running 1.5.1 and latest x-plane and mac updates as of this date. Also, I'm not using the auto-start feature and starting engines manually but it seems to happen regardless of start procedure.
