    Auto pilot problems

    no, if I am at any height and 10,000 selected I need to set it to 9,900 or 10,100 first

    Auto pilot problems

    The AP in this plane is frustrating. Sometimes when I set vertical speed and push VS it resets everything an engages with an insane rate of 3000 m/min, potentially killing everyone. Often nothing at all happens when I hit buttons. I have to enter a new selected height first, click several times and wait until it eventually engages. I think this is all related to how the programming of this plane is able to read data from the sim, it seems to have severe restrictions. You can still fly the plane without problems of course, but you must learn how to make the AP engage and how not to let it kill you.

    Where are LES functions documented?

    Ok, thanks this will be greatly appreciated and I am sure you see the problem. A short //comment or something would already help greatly, it doesn't have to be a whole essay

    Where are LES functions documented?

    I am currently confused by the many LES/xx functions in the joystick menu and their naming I could assign all basic functions so far, some were already descriptively named, others could be located by try and error But I know reach a point where I get lost with some functions Namely HDG_Slave I first assigned this to "Autopilot Heading Select and NAV arm" (which was suggested in a video). The XP function but I now noticed that it does not visually act on the HDG_Slave button, so it is probably misassigned. This would also explain why the button rarely works for me and brings up the white Gizmo windpw. I did a full text search in thepdfs and it did not bring up a list of functions. To better make use of this plane from this stage on I think I'd need a basic list with what the abbreviations mean and any other descriptive text to figure out what the function does.

    The white window sometimes comes up when I use Heading Slave or Trim. I succesfully landed on a field near Dresden and got messages that I was attempting to move the plane with chocks in place. It was hilarious, should have taken a screenshot.

    Reboot button mid flight only switches off my engines

    Do I understand this right, the next time this happens I just reboot the plane? That would be fine.

    Thanks @Chase911 I almost always restart X-Plane before a flight but sometimes I don't. I might have switched location or something sometimes. And I also thought it could have something to do with reinitiating the plane mid flight or even alt-tabbing (I have only 1 screen right now) It's not a biggy. I can switch off the damn pump manually and if it does not help, could try to make the sound file quieter. I just thought there is a logical explanation why it sometimes won't shut off even after many minutes continuous operation.

    Hydraulic Pump never goes off

    No

    Hydraulic Pump never goes off

    This is now the 3rd time this happens to me. What could cause the pump to never go off? After 10 minutes or so I must switch it off manually or I'll go nuts.

    The plane is fantastic. even if i dont understand how it works sometimes, or if the hydraulic pump goes on permanently. I would like to see some strings changed so that in the plane menu it does not say "Passenger Variant" but Saab 340A Passenger Variant I would also like to see something done about the cockpit glass. A lot of people don't buy the plane because the instruments are very hard to see behind the grey. The windscreen reflection is also a big problem at night, once you lift you head a little. A few sound effects are a little underwhelming, like the ladder extension. Otherwise I am not gonna put down this plane anytime soon. It actually saves me a lot of money because I don't feel the need to buy new planes all the time. EDIT: Also is it correct that the Saab has no sound in replay mode? Or is this something on my end??

    Saab 340, setting VS and heading

    YES thanks Autopilot VVI up/down works like a charm!!

    Beep sound while moving switches+ sound of hydraulic pump

    Sorry but sometimes the hydraulic pump will never go off. It's the second time this happened to me. I can manually switch it off of course, but as soon as I switch it back on the sound starts all over.

    SAAB 340A - Wing flex

    Great video, I love how the wing flex conveys the real physics of flying. Even if it is not strong, you can see how the air is working against the wing.

    Saab 340, setting VS and heading

    I figured it out eventually. It is very unintuitive because you must pull the knob for many seconds before anything happens. Just turning does nothing. Is there an assignable hotkey?
