Yaw Damper Engage/Disengage ?

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to assign a switch on my yoke for the YAw Damper? What I have assigned now that works on most a/c, does not work on this a/c. Is there an Offset Byte Parameter to assign like for the flaps?Thanks!Rick

No, there's no way I know of to do that, but I don't know why you'd want to. In the TinMouse panel, the FS yaw damper is deactivated internally anytime the acft is on the ground, which eliminates any problematic interactions with nosewheel steering present in other models with yaw damper active. Normal ops procedures have the yaw damper on from just after engine start until shutdown.RegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-VSantiago de Chile

The problem seems to be when landing in a cross wind. It's like there is not enough rudder to come out of the crab with it on. At that point it's too late to go to the overhead to turn it off without missing the runway because of inattention. With other panels, the function can be set to a button on your yoke, so a simple thumb movement turns it off without taking your eyes off the approach.It's too bad this can't be accomplished here. I thought I read on an earlier post you were working on some trick to allow more rudder movement during crosswind landings!Rick

Agreed with the lack of rudder on crosswind landings with the Y/D on. I know on DC-8's and 707's they turn it off for take off and landings in case of engine failures.

Beginning with the just released V1.24 beta, a Yaw Damper toggle is now provided through FSUIPC offset 6D11 (set value 4 to toggle the yaw damper switch). You can use FSUIPC to program a joystick button or a key, as desired.CheersBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-VSantiago de Chile
