There are 2 push buttons right under the MFD (labeled radio 1 and radio 2) Not sure if that's you're talking about...

I see a lot of people are struggling with the lack of documentation.

 

Please refer to the Hawker 800XP manual, which is basically the same aircraft.

I have to pay to download it? I just want fuel performance numbers but it says those pages aren't available in preview mode

The easiest way to view it in full, is to download the Scribd app on iPad or android, then save these file links to your library.

 

You then wouldn't need to either sign up, or pay for anything.

Has anyone found the Avionics Power switch?

Not sure how Carenado has modeled things, but on a real 800XP PL21, the display tubes and FMS CDUs come on with main battery or external power. (Two switches on the overhead panel). There are two, (or optionally three), AC inverter switches on the overhead panel (right side), that must be turned on so that the red "fail" annunciators go out, and then the previously mentioned "Radio 1" and ""Radio 2" buttons on the lower main instrument panel.

 

Since the Caranado add-on is probably simplified in many ways, they may have a completely different way of powering avionics.

The Carenado is the same, however the inverters announciators are not modelled (this can be fixed though)

I wonder if the Carenado inverters actually DO anything, systems-wise? On the real aircraft, many avionics sub-systems won't work properly with the inverters off, but I don't know if their functionality is modeled or not. I suppose I'll have to buy the aircraft to see "the good, the bad and the ugly" for myself!

No the inverter switches don't do anything as far as I can see. But having a look at the coding I can figure something out if Carenado don't fix it in a service patch.

Bert, the avionics should just turn on when you turn the battery on. You may have the issue others I have heard have with no gauges showing. I read someone uninstalled, restarted the system, reinstalled, and restarted the system again. Give it a go?

Before you pay just for the Performance numbers, keep in mind that the 800XP and the 850XP do have many of the same systems but, the performance of the 850XP is different enough that you should seek specific Performance Charts for this Hawker. The 850XP has a higher (better) climb rate and increased range so most of the performance charts for the 800XP will not reflect what your 850XP is capable of doing.

OK, I was looking for a separate avionics switch, but in that case, I can stop looking!

 

Thanks, all is well.. ^_^

The performance of "this" Hawker strays ju-u-u-u-st far enough from the charts that the relatively modest differences in climb performance numbers could be allowed for with a bit of discretionary fuel. Climbing at full throttle in this baby WILL burn between 150 - 180 pounds more than the book, and depending on the height you climb to, get there in a few miles less distance, and a couple of minutes early.

 

I always carry a bit of extra gas anyway...

Downloaded the app on my iPad, would not let me go any further without signing in. Tried to login with Facebook got a failed msg. Deleted scribd

Howdy all, Braun here. Yesterday I purchased the Carendo Hawker 850XP and asked Bert to please make the GTN 750 mod available to me. He did so almost immediately! :-), so I "immediately" started testing.

 

After a few hours of fits and starts, I came across this thread in my search for a better understanding of the Hawkers Flight Mangement Systems. In this thread I came across the Scrib links and I signed up for the 30 day test drive and got both manuals.

 

The first link is the book of choice I think. It's called "Hawker 800 XP Pilot Teaining Manual". Ever buy a new car, with a real good manual, lots of pictures and easy to read and understand? This is it, and a must have for Hawker Drivers in my mind.

 

The biggest take away for me? The Carendo modeling of the Collins Avionics and Flight Controls systems are are a good try, but much could be improved. I'm still trying to puzzle out the system logic, but as of today I can consistently fly a heading, capture a localizer, and even lock on to the glideslope taking the plane down to the numbers. Unfortunately, the system's behavior is not as consistent as mine which is causing much frustration and head scratching!

 

The manual is making it MUCH better though. Get it if you have any unanswered questions about this plane.
