IFR VIEWOne of the more difficult things I find about flying the airbus series of planes is using the 2d IFR view ( which I use most of the time). I just cant seem to get comfortable with the high glarescreen.What does everyone do to expose more of thje outside world. I do switch between the IFR/VFR options but you loose some info.Like to know what tips anyone has on this subject.PeterPeter KCF-MMZToronto Ontario CanadaPMDG 747,737and 747F

The only way is Multiscreen i think...

ThanksThats what I was thinking anyway, I suppose I could keep the vrf panel open and then unlock the missing pieces and put them on a second monitor.Thank you Peter

But which pieces do you think are "missing" and why is this causing you a problem? Just interested really as the only screen that isn't shown on the VFR panel is the lower ECAM and in critical stages of the flight like takeoff and approach you don't really need to look at it.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

It moves to the detent and does not move. That takes a bit of getting used to.Is this correct?Thankspeter

Is there a fuel manager designed specifically for the a 340 or should I use the 330Thank you in advancePeter>>--Peter KCF-MMZToronto Ontario CanadaPMDG 747,737and 747F

Failures are not simulated in the Airbus. Have you got a third-party addon like FSPassengers (I think that does failures) which might be causing these?The waypoints and fixes in the F-PLN page of the MCDU do scroll through. The top one in green is the waypoint behind you, the next in white is your next waypoint with subsequent ones in green below it. If you are finding that this doesn't happen then perhaps a re-install might be needed.The fuel planner for the A340 should be in your Flight Simulator 9PSSAirbus A3XX folder. It is called A340FuelPlanner.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

Please do not shout by using only upper case.I think what is happening here is you have the MS dead battery syndrome. Make sure you start your FS session with a default MS aircraft (I use the Boeing 737) with engines off and avionics on and save that as the default flight. Then re-start your FS session, load that default flight then load to the Airbus (which can be cold and dark if you wish).That will correct your gear issue and might also sort out the MCDU issue. If you have registered FSUIPC set the battery life to indefinite, or if you have unregistered either press ctrl+m or enter electric_always_available=1 into the [Electrical] section of your aircraft.cfg )create that section if it's not there). But you should still start your flight with the default aircraft/flight as I have described. I always do.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
