Two observations (bugs?)


Recommended Posts

Hello,

Thank you for continuing to support the Saab in 2021 with v1.6.

Two things I have noticed right out of the gate:

1. The captains altimeter pointer does not animate. It stays in the 12 oclock position. 
2. CG loading re: pitch trim. In order to get the thing to fly in a trimmed state, I've got the trim towards the maximum nose up range. Certainly outside of the green band. I've got experimental flight model turned on (tried with both ON and OFF though). Just setting the payload through the XP11 Weight & Balance menu. The result is on takeoff a very heavy nose and a difficult rotation.

And then I've two minor thoughts, one of which I think was covered in the release thread.
My assigned dataref for brakes (Hold Brakes Regular) is broken and does not actuate the brakes.
And is there a way to get the panel to display pounds for the units of the fuel flow and fuel gauge?

Cheers
Brendan

Known issue... should be fixed for the next update.

I assume you did not exceed the weight limits, correct ?  We will check into this otherwise.

No.  We are modeling the Saab to match the real world aircraft.  Have you seen any Saab gauges with Units of Measure other than Kg ??

Yup - 26,000 LBS loaded. All within limits.

Yes. Most of them in the US were in pounds. 

Within the first minute you can get a good view the gauges but they are in pounds.

Cool. Maybe something to consider for v2. Definitely not going to be implemented in the current run.

The purpose of this update went above and beyond, and after being on the market for 8 years with free updates it's time to move on from new features in this run.

Roger that. Thanks for a straight up response.
