YAW DAMPER Gauge

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am now in the end phase of my PMDG B737 NGX Home Cockpit building/ interface development.

 

One of the last items to interface to the hardware is the YAW DAMPER gauge.

 

But, I can't find any "YAW DAMPER needle" variable in the latest SDK version ( the one that came with the SP1D).

 

I have searched the forum, but haven't found any info about it.

 

Is it not in SDK? Is it simulated in the 3D/2D cockpit view at all? Did PMDG forget it, or did they left it out for any purpose?

I'd be surprised if you can find an NG with it in there. I know a bunch of the 300-500s had them, though.

 

EDIT: Started seeing more pictures of it as I continued on my search. Looks like it was phased out as the development cycle moved on, though.

Our brand new -800s are still equipped with it.

Our earlier planes have them but the later ones do not. They never told us they were changing that. Just one day I sat down in a plane and it wasn't there.

It's always covered by the ATIS printout anyway.  You must have been on a plane that the paper clip guy got to.

Hi all

 

I am now in the same situation as Roar in 2015. Nearly everything is now working in my homecockpit, but now I don't have an SDK value for the yaw damper. From the discussion above I was not sure if it is working at all. But a test flight shows a perfect behaviour in the PC cockpit. So why not making it available via SDK? Would be great.

 

Thanks to all for the good informations and happy new year

Some of our planes have it, some don't - either never installed or removed. I don't think I've ever looked at it in flight.
