GTN750 follow flight plan

Recommended Posts

Hi all-

 

Got the Hawker last night and have the 750 installed as well.

 

What's the trick to getting the Hawker to follow the GTN flight plan?

 

Thanks!

Hi Bert-

 

I do have your mods- thanks so much for sending them.

 

I was just trying to familiarize myself with the aircraft and the 750 prior to installing your mods. I didn't realize that this wouldn't work at all without your changes.

 

Looks like I'll be doing that this afternoon!

 

Thanks,

Mark

Well Bert, the deed is done!

Works very well. Thanks!

 

I've only made a few flights and have seen some odd behavior on the speed control. When setting speed to say 310 knots and the current speed is say 260, when pressing the FLC button, it appears the aircraft goes into descent to reach the higher speed.

 

I MAY have to read the manual, as a last resort of course  :lol:

 

Cheers,

Mark

Happy you have got it working!

 

The FLC mode is flaky... my advice is to always start FLC at your current speed

and vary it slowly if it all.  Basically use the throttle to climb or descend and let FLC

hold the current speed.

 

That seems to work.

 

Having said that, this airplane does not have an autothrottle, so if you set the

target speed higher than current speed, the only way for the autopilot to reach that speed, is

indeed to pitch down (!)

Thanks Bert!

 

I think all in all, this may be a great little jet with your mods.

Too bad you couldn't swap out the existing panel with one that actually worked. 

Wouldn't be the true Hawker but would be a working one!
