Maybe someone didn't fly the tutorial, nor read the introduction manual and thought that they would load fuel via the FSX menu. The video would be for these people.

Also if you want to correctly calculate fuel quantities, use simbrief.com, discovered it few days ago, excellent, very realistix.

 

Kind regards

Kinda like the video I recorded (but have not yet uploaded) explaining how to find the manuals?

Apparently, that's pretty tough...

Why do people keep calling the the CDU, "The FMC"?

 

Because it displays a lot of the information contained/calculated/provided by the FMC?

Correct me if I'm wrong but the CDU is contained within the airplane but the FMC displays data from the CDU like scandinavian13 said and is what we interact with.

Inverse.

 

CDU (control display unit) displays the data from the FMC as part of the FMS.

Realised my mistake couple of minutes before your reply :P. Therefore my post has an invalid statement. Apologies.

Awesome, I hope you'll upload it soon, really need them now. I swear I had them here a few days ago, in a big white box, some white binders, 6000 pages-ish..? Oh, right, ok... :) :) :)

Frankly, with this jet, anyone not RTFMing shouldn't even be buying it, IMHO.

Thank you.

 

I'm surprised the "that's what the forum is for!!!" people haven't jumped on your case yet...

 

 

 

I guess it's because they're distracted waiting for me to say it again so that they can jump on me for it...
