Vref gauge + body attitude

Recommended Posts

Hey all,is there any chance to create a Vref gauge on the panel?? Here's a pic of what I mean (as photographed on our Cockpit Procedure Trainer, in the full motion sim it's a working instrument)close-uphttp://www.freak-o-matic.be/vref-cl.jpgon the panel, next to the placard and above the center fuel tank indicationhttp://www.freak-o-matic.be/vref.jpgBasicaly what it does is you enter the ZFW with the knob on the lower righthand side, in this case it's 35 tons and the guage will read the fuel remaining, the needle showing 1.3 x stallspeed (Vref) in the configuration selected by the dial on the leftside (either flaps 15, 30 or 40)I have no real life experience with the PDC, but I assume this gauge becomes obsolete with a fully working PDC .. but on the other hand, it gives you a very quick readout of the Vref speeds ..Another idea, although not realistic, is that it might be handy to have a digital readout of the Body Attitude, maybe somewhere near the the ADI .. on the real aircraft the ADI is big enough the easily set the correct B.A., but in FS the ADI is so small it becomes pretty hard .. as you'll do a lot of manual flying on the -200, B.A. and powersetting are the key to flying this thing as it should be flown .. flying at 250 kts, a change of 1

Jan,Pretty nifty little gauge, definitely a nice one to have in FS!. I had no idea such a gauge existed in real life :-kewl>http://www.freak-o-matic.be/vref-cl.jpg>Another idea, although not realistic, is that it might be>handy to have a digital readout of the Body Attitude, maybe>somewhere near the the ADI .. on the real aircraft the ADI is>big enough the easily set the correct B.A., but in FS the ADI>is so small it becomes pretty hard .. as you'll do a lot of>manual flying on the -200, B.A. and powersetting are the key>to flying this thing as it should be flown .. flying at 250>kts, a change of 1
