FSBUS & FSUIPC offsets

Recommended Posts

Greetings...First phase of small home cockpit completed. Too bad I don't a digital camera to show you some fotos.Custom made MCP in 737NG motive, pedestal with both COM, both NAV and transponder.During my first test flights, always with the default 737 panel while waiting for ANY good panel to support FSUIPC control, I encountered some issues. Not really problems, just issues.1.One is that even though I send the correct value to the correct FSUIPC offset to turn on the APP mode on the autopilot, the (default crappy) autopilot just captures the Localizer and simply ignores the glideslope no matter what. It's like I had engaged the VOR/LOC mode instead.2.While waiting for Dirk to provide a software solution for setting the transponder properly, did anyone manage to set the transponder with the present version? And how? I use two (2) rotaries, but can also use one rotary per digit (4).3. From time to time, while I change a value, the displays display wrong data. If I continue to change the value they will resume to the correct value. I have assigned all my rotaries to output to both FS and the displays directly to enable fast update.For example when changing the com1 frequency, the display may show 118.00... 119.00...120.00...021.00 and then on next turn resume to 122.00.Anyone else noticed any of this?Best regards,George DorkofikisAthens, Greecehttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/betaimg.jpg

I checked with the FSUIPC SDK and it's the correct offset with the correct value (Sets 1 to h0800).It's probably a panel/FS issue. Just wanted to know if others get this behaviour too.>>3.
