L-1011 RMI

Recommended Posts

The RMI on the Tristar panel gives NAV1 and NAV2 by default. I can find no way to switch it to show ADF readings (NDBs, in other words), even though the visual image shows ADF selection.Am I missing a switch, or is this just how it is? If so, there's no way to read out ADF bearings (which do function in the panel, the audio part works OK) and I may have to swap out this RMI. Sure, it's not relevant when navigating in NAV mode linked to the FMS/INS, but the option of RADIO navigation should be functional.MarkMark "Dark Moment" BeaumontVP Fleet, DC-3 AirwaysTeam Member, MAAM-SIM[a href=http://www.swiremariners.com/cathayhk.html" target="_blank]http://www.paxship.com/maamlogo2.jpg[/a]

Hello Mark,I emailed AeroSim about the RMI. The needles were backwards too, the single bar needle is for VOR 1 and the double bar needle for VOR 2. AeroSim got it backwards but will be fixing it in their next up date. I just sent them an email about the missing buttons to select either VOR/ADF.Until it's fixed I would recommend downloading this file. It has a very nice RMI and not to mention a clock and ADI.Check it out and see what you think?File name: fab737.zip By Fabrizio Berretta. It's here in the Avsim library.Ed

Thanks, Ed. I have all Fabrizio's work - it's great - but have actually spent the last couple of hours dovetailing the Omwings panel into the Aerosim bird - which has an RMI that works correctly. I've rebuilt the Omwings panel with things that it needs from Aerosim's setup such as their flap controls, their FMS/CDU etc, and certain switches and indicators; it fits extremely well though. So far so good anyway; I'm just playing with the night lighting to match it up properly with the VC!MarkMark "Dark Moment" BeaumontVP Fleet, DC-3 AirwaysTeam Member, MAAM-SIM[a href=http://www.swiremariners.com/cathayhk.html" target="_blank]http://www.paxship.com/maamlogo2.jpg[/a]
