HDG / TRK displays in FSBUS

Recommended Posts

HelloHave someone make the display for the HDG in the MCP with the help of one switch when is push it to change the value of the HDG and shows the TRK value in the same display? (FSBUS)The button HDG/TRK exist in the MCP of 777.I search in the OFFSETS of progect magenta but can`t find anything for the TRK value or how to change it with a rotary.Any experience any idea maybe is posible via CCC.LambisGreece

An idea ...you must use the CCCYou use an unused offset of FSUIPCWhen you button is up you write the HDG to your user-offset, when down you write the TRKYou display the user-offset.If you preffer a toogle button it's possible too with some more programmation to alternate the diplay.Could a specialist program that in the CCC and put the picture ...BOB

I think it's the same way to diplay the DME1 or DME2 in a single display. according to the position of a switch.What do you think about that ?That would be interresting to speak about multi-display with CCC:one 5 7-segments display with a 6 positions rotary-switchwhich can display in the same diplay 6 differents variables.If someone have idea about that, could be interrestingBOB

it is also would be useful in displaying both IAS/MACH values in the same display window. But how would you switch from one PIC to another with a single buton press? that is the problem I think.Once achieved, you can also display in same window 1013 or 2992 for your convenience.Any suggestion?Remzi Ozturk

And let's not forget about the 2 LEDs that indicates either track or heading...

Hi again guysI have make some steps.In the picture you can see the ccc parts.When i press the Button the display show me the Heading value and when i press it again show me the Cource value. With each press the value change from hdg to trk.Now the BIG problem is when i try to involve the rotary.It is impossible with one rotary to change the value of each activate display.Any help or any idea is welcome.Thanks LambisGreecehttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/78690.jpg

Simple really with the CCC:two flightsim inputsone fsbus outputone fsbus input2 analog switch objects1 NOT portThe FSBUS INPUT is a switch, to it's output you connect one of the analog switches and the not port; the second analog switch to the output of the not port.Then you wire one fo the flightsim input to one of the analog swithes, and the other flightsim input to the other switch.The outputs of both switches you wire together to the fsbus output.Below is a shot.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/78694.gif

Yes is the same like my draw but with other way. (smarter)The problem is how one rotary can change the value of the Heading or the Cource.I mean the display that is activate. Without make any change to the display that don`t show. (is hide)I say again with one rotary.Lambis

Thanks to this post and examples in pictures, i managed to make some test with CCC. So until next release of Fsbus, where Dirk will propably solve the issue for blank displays (V/S and Speed), i make them to display "1" for blank and not the numbers or zeros.So when no V/S is active and descending or climbing with Vnav or FLCH the V/S display shows 1 and when i have V/S active it shows the V/S.Also i made some test for having in one display mac and ias.In this point i need some help regarding the free fsuipc offsets.Somebody said that we can use them for write there and read from there. How can i found these free offsets and how to know if they are bits 8 or 16 , bytes etc?ThanksEddie ArmaosAthens-Greece

Hello EddieHere's an extract of the FSUIPC variable from the FSinterrogatepart of the FSUIPC SDK'shttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/78829.jpgFirst the AP airspeed value, with offset type and multiplierSecond the mach number ...Hope it will help youI'll make a multidisplay for the DME distance and I working hard on a multi use clock, with LT, UTC, Chronometer, Flighttimein the same 4 digits display with a rotary selector and 2 buttons (start and reset). The CCC is really great :-)BOB
