CDU button syncing

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

Just curious..

 

On the front page it says "CDU button syncing is provided via the included Desk pilot CDU gauge". What exactly does that mean (if there is no FMS syncing available) ? Will both pilots be able to use a single CDU through CDU "gauge" ?

Well that had to be stated that way to prevent any confusion about how Desk Pilot accesses PMDG's aircraft. The "FMS" of their aircraft is not synced or accessed by Desk Pilot at all, since their sdk does not allow such access and there is no legal means of accessing it. Therefore it's not synced or ever will be.

 

FMS = Flight Management System is pretty much the brains of the aircraft.

CDU = Control Display Unit are those devices with the alphabet and line buttons on it. :P

 

Yes both pilots can use the CDU's.

It works like the following:

 

DP CDU Panel > Aircraft CDU

                         > Server

                         < Client

 

Or

 

 

DP CDU Panel > Aircraft CDU

                         > Client

                         < Server

 

There will be some demonstrations prior to release which will clear up any confusion.
