  1. Hello, It works for me, I assigned these 2 commands to my alpha yoke. You probably know it already : to pitch the aircraft , ALT and VS modes must be off.
  2. Hello Anthony, I did not have this kind of issue. What I do usually is to descend to the IAF altitude at 2-3 nm short before. Then, in flight level and reducing the throttles, the speed will gently get down below 175 kts. I set flaps 5 before I am established on the ILS. On the glide, 6-8 nm before the threshold, I deploy the gear and when the speed slows down below 140 kts, I set flaps 20. Then, you should maintain a speed around 120 kts, with a torque about 40% (condition levers in TO position : it helps to decrease the speed of course). When the autopilot is disconnected, I have to trim up the plane and it's often necessary to advance the throttles a little bit. When training on a circuit, I set gear and flaps 5 in rear wind and below 145 kts, I set flaps 20 to get a speed of around 120 kts when entering the base and descend. On the flare, speed decreases quite quickly. So, I reduce the throttles very slowly to idle after passing the threshold, or the plane would fall down in a hard landing.
  3. Thanks CaptCrash for this much interesting precisions and for your Siembrief submission.
  4. Edit : to get a more accurate fuel consumption planning, I suggest to set the fuel factor to P30 in Siembrief (this modification has to be done by users for each flight unfortunately). For example, for a flight from LGSR (Santorini) to LGSK (Skiathos), Siembrief calculates : taxi + trip = 1h 10 mn and 691 lbs (with a fuel factor of P30). My effective duration flight (taxi included) was 1 hr 7 mn with a fuel consumption of 653 lbs. The TOGAMSIM aircraft has perfomances pretty close to those I could get from the POH. For example, at 18 000 ft with an average ISA+12° (calculated by Siembrief for this trip, coherent with the outside air tempetarure of about -10° observed in the plane at this altitude : I'm using FS Global Weather), I got : Torque : 70 ; Fuel flow per engine : 255 ; CAS : 205 ; Ground speed : 270 (with an average headwind of 7 kts). From the POH tables, at ISA+10° and for a total weight of 10 500 lbs, the figures are : Torque : 76 ; FF/E : 288 ; CAS : 212 ; TAS : 282 Curiously, the POH indicates an IOAT of -3° at 18 000 ft (instead of -10). I know that the temperature is decreasing by 2°/1000 ft only below 10 000 ft, but it cannot explain such a difference. The calibration gauge maybe, different in the real aircraft ? A part of the differences may also comes from the RPM settings: I flew at 98 RPM (as far as we may catch it from the gauge), as the POH recommends a 96 RPM. I also noticed that in hot weather conditions (as those that we have in Europe at this moment), is's not interesting to fly above 19000 ft (on high routes) for 1 or 2 hours trips: the climb performances are poorer and the time of climb is much too high, without much gain in terms of speed or fuel consumption.
  5. My updated profile for the Bravo : https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/files/file/6481-toga-simulation-mu-2-honeycomb-bravo-profile/
  6. Known issue. Temporary solution : uncheck the chocks setting in the UI menu, save the new preference and restart x-plane.
  7. Excellent work, bravo for... Bravo owners at least !
  8. @gercast : that's actually the function of the ghost throttle visualization. Then, we will be able to know precisely where the SW throttle levers are before activating the lift throttle command...
  9. Hello Tom, To map this knob to the Bravo, you need a separate variable for "increase" and "decrease". When in VLOC mode, the command "sim/radios/... up and down" allows me to change the course of a VOR in the HSI. But in GPS, the knob doesn't rotate to tune the CRS of the HSI according the course of the GPS, I have to do it manually. I tried to use the "nav1_obs_degm", but it doesn't work : a messager of the Honeycomb Configurator indicates that I have not the good value for this variable and so will ignore it. That's why I thought that I need a value to use this dataref through the configurator, allowing the rotary knob the Bravo to animate the knob of the HSI when in GPS mode.
  10. Hello, Which are the values to bind the HSI obs knob ? XP dataref "sim/radios/obs_HSI_up (and down)" works to animate the knob when the GPS is on VLOC mode, but not in GPS mode. Thanks for your answer.
  11. Bulva's solution works perfectly well for me (thanks a lot to him !). It will be nice to have a ghost picture of the throttle levers' position, as in the HotStart TBM.
  12. Ah, I understand now ! Thank you very much for this information.
