  1. Don’t believe thats a simple question in xplane. From what I gather, the slider on the weight screen for CG shows the displacement from the models reference point in inches. Don’t think LES state what the datum they used is anywhere, nor is the charts for it in the aircraft package. If you do find them, theres likely still some math required to convert it to Saab which use the nose as the datum, or convert it to %MAC. Which may again require you finding what the station of the leading and trailing edge are. With all of that you could determine the trim setting. Alternatively, buy th
  2. Decided to use that inspiration Also found those charts from the OP video if you prefer those: Probably have to be in the LES discord to get to them https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/370749422432288771/808423007176884234/charts.zip

    This package will replace the default instrument approach charts on the yoke with a selection of power and speed charts. The data is derived from the charts.pdf provided with the aircraft, speeds are based on Sea Level and 0 degrees celcius. Being a turbo-prop, the difference in most speeds are only a few knotts and makes a compromise for the limited chart space. To select the chart to be displayed, click on the 'charts' icon towards the bottom of the gizmo toolbar (the one that looks like line graphs). Includes: * Climb Power and ECS OFF Takeoff Power * Cruise Power and ECS

  5. I would imagine he made them himself and used the chart function to display it there. Not aware of a specific 'pack' as such to download, but I like the idea
  6. The GTN will drive the saab, you won't get a CDI indication and you can't replace the 530 with it either, have to accept the initial page on the 530.

  9. Ha ha, 210 knots and 700 fpm at F200 in a saab That's down right impossible, there is no way she would do that without max continuous power. Also descends at Vmo +30, a very annoying noise would be heard for that descent. --- Using those 1230rpm climb charts in the docs folder feels about right. Ng is indeed below 100% with them.
  10. Just because they are both turboprops doesn't mean anything. A metroliner has way less power than both yet it will flog a Saab.
  11. I dare say ignore the Ng to an extent, it seems to be a tad higher than it should be at a glance. You've got a fairly cold day there, I'm used to the tropics, but a Saab does not like climbing, especially in high climb mode. She really starts to peak out around that point, trying to get to F250 in high climb will take all day. CTOT (Constant torque on Takeoff) simply upscales the fuel flow to achieve the set torque on the dial. It is used only on take-off and low level go arounds, then turned off when setting climb power.
  12. It's not, but very common in XP. I'd almost suggest its Laminars engine model potentially. CT7 is a free turbine
  13. Na, its just an electrical switch. Drive it will just pull the image via the MFD’s graphics card (DPU technically) or the Other sides graphics if it doesn’t have an MFD. Xside it pulls heading and attitude input from the other sides data computer. Can flick the switch all day long if you wanted to, if nothings broken it will just make the system light turn on and off and the screen image flicker. MFDs you can even push the image the other way, switch below that is the reversionary mode for when a single screen fails, push it down so the ADI is merged down into the n

    LES SAAB tiller

    Clicked on the tiller to push it down and engage nosewheel steering?
  15. They go with the boots. Entering Icing conditions (+5c and visible moisture) Engine anti-ice on, boots continuous and HP auto. -6c Props to norm, -12c props off then up to max. Exiting icing Props can go straight to off 5 mins later engine anti ice off 9 minutes later or temp +6c boots off and HP closed. The problem you have is Laminar for some reason believe in ice bridging, so they coded boots to do nothing initially until there is a heap of ice on the plane, by that point its already struggling. Combined with the rate it accumulat
  16. Playing around with it under those conditions: The ice accumulation ratio, hopefully I'm wrong, is the percentage of ice compered to the aircraft weight by the looks of the internet? If that is the case, then X-Plane is adding 8 ton per minute in ice to that airframe. Super duper extreme ungodly apocalyptic severe icing encounter.
  17. Looks very much like an ice induced stall. Only thing I can spot immediately is HP BLD valves should be open with the boots on. Around the 30 second mark the power is probably bordering insufficient to inflate the boots and would have triggered a master caution, ice protection, timer light on. Don't think its modeled. Personally I would suggest x-plane ice accumulation is incredibly aggressive, and they use some 1940s rubbish logic when it comes to boot de-ice. it was most likely what would have been severe icing if it built up as quick as XP does.
  18. Flashing DH and there is a light on the altimeter. I set it to 20 for a 'flare now idiot' warning on night approaches when you get the whole black hole effect.

    Emergency bat?

    340A ch.5.1 p.4 Pretty sure its a copy paste system into the B's. That battery is the cockpit supply and is in the avionics rack. There is another, although technically separate, set of battery's for emergency cabin lighting under the cabin flooring. Similar logic, loss of main bus power means I should turn on.

    AP camera views

    There is a setting in preferences i think from the side menu that displays the new value to all the modes. Not awkward at all to look at the autopilot whilst its on. If you’re wanting to handfly then you’ll need to make a compromise somewhere, its a two person aeroplane. I also have autopilot, yaw damper and CTOT on a key command. Vert sync is a push button on the yoke, just syncs IAS and VS modes to the aircrafts current speed/rate.
  21. I don’t know the where it sits on the copywrite scale, so I’ll just say if you where to submit 340A AOM to google, you may find a pdf of what you seek. otherwise AOM - Systems, AFM - mostly performance charts. Just be careful you buy the one you actually want.
  22. Stock, don't believe I have any custom scenery in that area of the world.
  23. LFMK seems to be a problem too. I flew it in there no problem, but can't get it to load a saab there.
  24. I don't think it works with better pushback and haven't seen any mentions in update notes. Nosewheel steering lockout and nose gear pin are installed: - Start right engine - Right generator reset/on and external power disconnected - Hydr pressure maintained above 2100 psi (normal function if generator is online, require override on hydr pump if not starting first) - Park brake released Push occurs keeping clear of brakes and steering tiller (tiller not depressed, real thing is spring loaded to off) - park brake set - tow bar disconnected, pins removed and tug repositi
