how do you call for gear down before flaps 35?

Recommended Posts

I was in a situation comming into Taipei where I got chopped and dropped by radar contact (not to unusuall). Anyway I am doing 250 with speed brakes out on 10 mile final because computer programs cannot think. Normally I would have had the gear down a while back but I was afraid that when I got to the gear down part in fs2crew he would put the gear up instead because it was down. Will this happen? I was afraid to do it and as a result was totally unstabilised and finishing up the before landing out of 300 feet. Not good. My workload was so high and I got distracted and hit the secondary button instead of the primary one and well, you guessed it, the gear came up for go around. I put the gear back down, slapped Mich over the head with the fuel stick and landed anyway. What was his name? What did I say!? No, it was got ground! Guy needs to go back to CRM class or get his ears cleaned.So can I put the gear down early w/o screwing it up, is there a seperate call?Thanks

Thanks, I was just afraid he would put it up since this is the logic applied to some other switches like the battery.
