New Majestic Dash 8 Q-400 (module 2.5)

180 posts in this topic

I went back to the Dash 8 today and loaded the 0.3 module. Is it written for the Q400 update 1.007? I set up several of the commands on the MCP Combo II but had very poor results trying them.

For Example: All the engine commands (Set Ign Switches to "normal",Select #1/#2, Start, etc. all operated only the ignition switches on my OHP, They turned ign. switches to "normal" or back to "off", or toggled the same switches. Same with the "Select".

the APU cycle worked perfectly. I stopped testing because my "flying" time was getting short.

I will try a few mouse macros and if successful will post them.

In the meantime: Maybe someone has an update of the 0.3 module or can tell me what I might not be doing properly.

Later

Regards to all

Hello!

 

Is there a way to manage the radios with the MCP combo2? They don't change in the plane. The inverse (set the radios in mcp combo2 to the selected ones once changed in the plane is working, but I need the opposite also)

 

Thanks!

No unfortunately not, Majestic chose to use there own custom coded radio for some unknown reason and Linda has no way of interfacing with it at this time. Majestic did promise to tie the default commands to their systems but it could be well into next year before we see anything and it may only be on Pro and Training editions, the Pilot edition may not see the updated capability at all.

I have been testing the module and seems to work preaty well. BUT there are 2 or 3 functions that are not working.

 

1. The Alt Sel option when I press the alt knob in mcp combo2. It is set to its function and the white label of ALT CAP appears in the screen, BUT it disappears in a second or two. Only remains if I press in the 3D gladeshield.

 

2. The minimuns rotary working corretly for increase.. BUT not for decrease. The function is set.. but not working in the 1.07 version of the plane.

 

I would like to see also a function to choose which Nave source (is not done) and the buttons to show navaids, airports, etc.. in the MFD if possible... and a Toga function also.

But overall, appart from the not possible tune the radios.. All is great!

Ah I thought the decrease minimums function had a bug because it's listed but not working.

 

Thanks for the effort doing all modules.

Help!!! ;)

 

With the 1.008 the macro has changed completelly as predicted.

Now, I have changed all new macro numbers, but it isn't working here.

 

Any macro-specialists out there?

 

 

 

 

There was some error, don't know why, but all in all I got it running now, hopefully.

Will upload the new MACRO later

OK, reowrked the macro for v 1.008.

 

Please redownload the module and replace just the MACRO (other files are not modified)!

just updated the macro.. and I cannot manage the autopilot functions. Yes.. I can choose the heading angle but pressing the HDG button in the mcp don't do anything and the fuction is correctly put. I have 1.008 of Majestic Q400

 

Also don't know what happens with this plane.. that in previous version of linda.. in a certain time it looses the comunication with MCP and I cannot change any value in the MCP. Don't happen with any other plane.

Hi Guenter & all !

 

Great work. 

I couldn't find a 'Go Around' assignment/macro for the Q400. I'm not sure there's one... 

Can you please include one in a future update?

 

Cheers!

What I find odd about this plane is that sometimes one of the MCP 2 buttons will not work with the LVars menu. Then I find that I can create a mouse macro that will work.

 Doesn't matter really..as soon as we get it all set Majestic will will update and we start all over :(

Hi,

Majestics had updated their Q400, unfortunately some AP-Functions don't work anymore.

AP VS  don't work.

HDG sel and Alt sel work with the default FSX function  AP Panel HDG Hold and AP Panel Alt Hold.

 

None of the Majestic AP funktion work for me.
