[SOP 2] XPonder and Retractable LDG Lights

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, how are you?

As a 737 NG FS2crew user since the first PMDG version (later on iFly, NGX and now on Reboot), I have two questions that are bothering me during my flights:

 

>How do I set the FO to trigger the transponder to STBY after the "Ok to clean up"?

>How do I make the "Cleared" callout work again and the FO turn on the retractable landing lights? It's a little bit awkward to release my hands from the controls during manual flight (500' AGL on approach) to turn them on.

 

 

Thanks for you help.

Hi,

 

1. Make sure ASDEX on the Approach Brief page is set to No.

 

2. Those lights are in your area of responsibility as the PF.  What I would do is just assign a keyboard command for the lights to a joystick button.

Check the TARA option on the Config settings.

 

Set it to NO.

Yes and yes

 

And what version of FS2Crew are you running... send a picture of the "About Page"

Thanks for the email.

 

So what is the FO currently doing with the PMDG Transponder during the After Landing flow?

 

Which SOP are you using?

Hi Bryan.

I'm using SOP 2 (as I specified on this topic's title).

 

And the FO is doing nothing with the XPDR... it keeps on TARA.

Okay, I'll check it out.

 

There's a big Reboot update in the works after I release the Dash 8 Special Bundle Pack this weekend.

Hi Bryan. The new version really solved the problem. Thanks for working on it.

Just one question: is there a way to save "SOP2 A.LDG FLOW XPNDR" to YES?

 

For now I have to turn it on every flight.

I'll see that it gets saved in the next update.

HI,

 

also waiting for the SOP2 A.LDG FLOW XPNDR to be saved, but another question: The FO resets the code to 3000 every time. To my knowledge, this should be 2000. Or is there some setting I'm missing?

That's airline specific.

Pretty likely. Had something else in mind for European airports, but I'm unable to find it anywhere. :)

Hi Bryan.

Just reopening this to thank you for the mods you released on the 3.0 version. =]
