True headings?

Recommended Posts

Hey,Firstly, let me just say how impressed I am with the Tinmouse 737 -- I'd probably say it's as good (if not, better) than a lot of payware I have seen. It's an absolutely amazing aircraft, and you guys have gone into great detail with it!Now, I find myself wanting to try out some very diverse flying; up in Northern Canada, where most of the runways are gravel, the navaids come sparse, and, well, the headings are done in true headings rather than magnetic. Well, the only restriction that I have is the heading indicator seems to be "stuck" in the magnetic heading mode! I was wondering if there was any possible way to switch it over to true, or set it manually (as it would be really done, am I wrong?)Anyway, any help would be appreciated on the subject.P.S. anyone willing to do some Canadian 732 repaints? It would be great to have: Canadian Airlines, Air Canada, Zip Air, Canjet, First Air, the list goes on and on...

2 of us on the subject of true heading or Canadian repaints? :(BTW -- do you know how to change the headings, or do I have to sit in agony for a few more days until the manual comes out?

I was reffering to the True headings...Gyro-only slave mode is not currently implemented for the Tinmouse, but from an earlier request, it could be implemented ;)regards,Macs :)

Almost had someone to support me on the repaints there :D Well, if that's the type gyro that you can adjust, that that's what I need! Would be a much-wanted utility!

I decided against an unslaved gyro, as it doesn't mesh well with a number of the nav options I've been busy integrating. I went instead with a True/Mag hdg switch similar to one we had on a r/w aircraft with the Litton INUs. It's done and tested with the base radios, the CIVA INS, the RealityXP rendition of the Garmin GNS530, and I'm currently working on a Project Magenta MCP/CDU combo.A number of folks have also asked about the Sperry SP-177 AFGS...that project is on hold and will not be included in V1.2 as I had hoped. I have not been able to procure documentation on the 177. I have three different AFMs for the -200, all of which use the SP-77. If anyone knows where I can find docs on the system, I could use a vector.RegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-V L-300Santiago de Chile
