62K and Me

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, just wondering about a couple thingsFirstly when selecting the 62K option in the PW model through the CDU, it is reflected on the EAD. However with ATS disengaged and thrust is advanced for takeoff, the engine reaches the 62K EPR limit until around 80kts or so when the engine rolls back to a 60K EPR setting....is this normal and why?Secondly, i know that PMDG must have been hoping that the last patch would have been the LAST one, but i notice the passenger oxygen mask switch doesn't appear to work, are there any plans to model even the alerts?thanks

BTW Brian, the lavatory is also not working as it should. Should we ask for a working version in the next update? ;-)Regards, Manfred

Haha Manfred.... talking of which I was watching an ITVV dvd on the Airbus330 and the captain, explaining the overhead panel, commented on a VERY important light....I comes on when the lavatory is vacant... very useful lolDoesn't the pmdg options have something like restow oxygen masks? can't remember offhand. (If so, the switch works)John E

I quite agree that the next update should include a fully functioning lav, so some people can properly dispose of what they have to say, instead of leaving it on the forum.Bryan noted some system related bugs and requested that they be corrected. I'd rather see a hundred of these requests than a request for the crew heads to be resized.FWIW, I looked into it, and noticed that when the lamp test is performed, the NO MASKS light is illuminated, but it seems to have been missed in the programming.I also looked at the EPR thing and noticed something else. When A/T is used for takeoff with 62K, the indication changes to 60K when the A/T engages, but the EPR limit itself does not change until the levers are retarded.Hopefully the team will have a chance to look into it.Paul
