last dash-7 question

Recommended Posts

When arming the spoilers there's a digital readout from 0-100. But, there is no mention of it in the .jpeg located in the panel folder, any ideas?Also, many thanks for the dash-7, I've want one since fs98, I can tell this is going to be my favourite 'series' of aircraft!Many Thanks Milton!

In our quest for more and better Dash 7 realism, we had replaced that gauge with another to add more functionality. As nice as the newer one was, it had one flaw that we could not live with.At the eleventh hour, we had to revert back to this one and I think we overlooked updating the Main Panel Info jpeg.For this gauge, please ignore anything other than 0 and 100. If you arm it, the light will be on. Upon touchdown and throttles at idle, (may have to press F1) the spoilers will deploy and show 100% deployment.You may also activate and retract spoilers with the slash (/) key. Be mindful that the spoilers create a lot of drag and eliminate a lot of lift.In the real Dash 7, all spoiler functions are automated. They deploy automatically at touchdown to remove lift from the main gear for more effective braking. They stay up on the ground at all times with engines running. They only retract when throttles go above 80% or engines off.Look for more realism in the next release for the spoilers. ;-)Milton
