A few oddities and a feature request

Recommended Posts

Win 7 64bit, XPlane 10.45, Mooney 3.2 (applies to 2.1 too), before and after a complete Win+XP fresh install.

 

1:

Is there no speedlimit for gear and flap extraction or doesn't it work in my case? I can speed up to the yellow arch and operate them and I get no failures, they work visually and they also do their job while landing after the testflight. If I fly wildly (without flaps and gear), I get structure over-g (or something like that) and the plane breaks so obviously it knows when to give up - at least on that case. Also the settings in X-Plane should be ok because for example the stock Cessna fails the flaps if overspeeding.

 

2:
The autopilot ALT, I don't get it. If I press ALT, maybe once in 20 tries I get the current altitude on the AP display and it will hold it (that's the way I understand it should work). Usually the ALT button just lights up and and I can more or less keep the altitude by setting v/s to 000, yet it doesn't hold the altitude as accurately as when it does when I get the correct alitude reading in the AP display. Something wrong with it or is it just me? Doesn't matter if I press AP+ALT or only ALT (which also lights up the AP).

 

3:

The feature request. From what I've read, many Mooneys have speedbrakes installed, maybe we could have some too?

 

Other than these things, I think it's the best thing for me at this time. Learned the basics with the stock Cessna, now I've had the Mooney for a few months and the PC-12 will be up next when I think I've done with this.
