Shortcut for FMC

Recommended Posts

While I'm awaiting a response to my request for access to the Majestic forum I'm going to avail myself of th eunofficail forum.

 

The FMC/MDU, etc. on all of the other aircraft  that I own can be opened using Shift-n key combo.

 

However, on the Q400 it pops up as part of another panel, and to split it out I have to click on it using the mouse.

 

I try to avoid using the mouse as much as I can during flight, so is there a way to open just the FMC/MDU, etc.?

 

Thanks,

Ernie

At this time no.  SHIFT + 5 is your best option which activates the FMS & ARCDU panel, this may change with the TRAINING Edition, but no guarantees.

That's unfortunate. 

 

Virtually every other aircraft that I have from a major vendor (iFly, Level-D, FeelThere, QualityWings, etc.) has the capability to split out just the FMC so that it can be placed on a separate monitor.

 

I'm simply amazed that Majestic didn't catch on to that.

Did not realize that we had to follow everyone else's design concept.  Our FMS can be used on a separate screen if needed - but you have previously mentioned that you are not too keen on our simplistic way of clicking on the FMS screen to bring it up, then un-docking it and moving it to a device/monitor of your choice, there is not much more that we can really suggest to you.

Our aim is to make the product as user friendly for our consumers - unfortunately we are not able to please/satisfy everyone.

 

Cheers

That is actually the worst complaint I've heard about the aircraft, which is to credit!

 

Six plus years flying the Dash 8 Professional, and I love every single flight!
