A320 Taxiing Far too Fast!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi,Having the following ProblemWhen I start ENG and release Park Brakes, the a/c starts taxying, it gradually starts speeding up, thus I have to keep applying Brake, I did not have this problem in FS2002, just wondered if there is a fix for this solution.it is taxiing and when I get to the holding point and apply max brake to bring the a/c to a complete hold, it stays stationary then gradually starts creeping fwd.So I have to put park barkes on, then the tyre temps start increasing, because its trying to move with the brakes on.I have tried the following:Re-install the FS2004 Patch and CD Version of Airbus.Tried posting on JF Forum but no help.Re calibarte Yoke but no changes.It just ahppens only with the Airbus 320/321/319 Package.I am running Win XP FS2004.Thanks

I strongly recommend you get hold of the pushback and taxi gauge (possibly now called the ground handling gauge) by Rob Barendregt which is available in the gauges section here at avsim. You can incorporate it into your panel and it allows you to set the amount of pushback, degrees of turn, taxi speed and many other things. I wouldn't be without it and have it on all my aircraft.Rob Elliott, EGPE InvernessPSS Airbus Support andAirbus Fleet Training Captain, British Airways Virtual airbus@speedbirdonline.co.ukhttp://www.speedbirdonline.co.uk/airbus.htmlhttp://www.bavirtual.co.uk

I downloaded the gauge but where do I put it? I read the installation instructions and if I understand them correctly I need to specify where it will appear on the panel. What location did you put the gauge in the A320 family?

Make sure all the gauge files are in a folder called rcb-gauges under the main FS9/Gauges folder, then:1) In the window titles section choose the next avaialble number, in my case this was window09:Window Titles...Window09=pushback panel....2) Then in Window00 choose the next available gauge number, in my case gauge09:Window00file=headup.BMPsize_mm=1024visible=0position=7ident=MAIN_PANELgauge00=PSS-A320!PFDV, 0, 527, 223....gauge09=rcb-gauges!Icon_Pushback,220,435,12,12 //pushback and taxi gauge....3) Then in window01 choose the next avaialble gauge number, in my case gauge12Window01file=forward.bmpsize_mm=1024visible=1position=7ident=MAIN_PANELgauge00=PSS-A320!PFD, 0, 216, 223....gauge12=rcb-gauges!Icon_pushback,220,121,12,12 //pushback and taxi gauge.....4) Then in my window09 (the same number as in the window titles section)I have:Window09size_mm=146,100ident=10005 // The ident used by Icon_Pushbackvisible=1 // 0: hidden when aircraft is loadedwindow_size=0.1,0.1 // Screensize: 20% height, 20% widthposition=8 // 0: opens in top-left of the screengauge00=rcb-gauges!PushbackStates, 0,0,1gauge01=rcb-gauges!PushbackDisplay, 0,36,86,64//gauge02=RobSound!Rob-Sound, 0,0,1 // Plays Pushback conversation soundsgauge02=rcb-gauges!PushbackSoundOff, // Disables Pushback conversation soundsgauge03=rcb-gauges!Taxispeed, 86,36,60,64gauge04=rcb-gauges!AutoTaxiAfterParkingbrake, 97,0,49,36gauge05=rcb-gauges!AutoTaxiAfterLanding, 48,0,49,36gauge06=rcb-gauges!ParkingBrakeSwitch, 0,0,48,36The result is that on both the VFR and the IFR panels the gauge ends up in the bottom right of the panel and the toggle on/off switch goes on the glareshield as shown in the image below. I hope this helps.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/149829.jpgRob Elliott, EGPE InvernessPSS Airbus Support andAirbus Fleet Training Captain, British Airways Virtual airbus@speedbirdonline.co.ukhttp://www.speedbirdonline.co.uk/airbus.htmlhttp://www.bavirtual.co.uk

I actually found a setup someone has made for this gauge and the Airbus. It's a file available here on Avsim. It integrates it into the panel. There is a lit button where the Stick Priority button is whcih activates it. Once activated it uses the speed window on tme Flight Mode Panel to set the distance and it uses the SPD/MACH button to toggle straight back, left 90 degrees and right 90 degrees. To get the push started you press the LOC button which is labeled CALL when the pushback is activatted. It is a nice clean installation. Either I haven't found it or you lose the taxi speed control when using this setup.After I got the Airbus working I discovered I could use Photoshop to get the cordinants and with some trial and error I was able to get the button placed nicely on the PMDG 737 and Dreamfleet 727.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/149836.jpg

I don't use that integrated version of the Rob Barendreft gauge as I believe it does not have all the features of the vesion I use. but I think his gauges are good so I hope it works OK for you.Rob Elliott, EGPE InvernessPSS Airbus Support andAirbus Fleet Training Captain, British Airways Virtual airbus@speedbirdonline.co.ukhttp://www.speedbirdonline.co.uk/airbus.htmlhttp://www.bavirtual.co.uk
