beta testing by purchaser many issues

Recommended Posts

By now I should know better than buy a aircraft on first release!  i. I have a popup screen  telling me about how the knobs work. says it will go away in 5 minutes. There is no way to close this screen, X does not work. When i restarted the sim. here comes the popup screen for another 5 minutes. 

Can anyone explain why the altimeter has red and white bars. non functional

the autopilot just does not work, impossible to set, remains dark

I have only had thisproduct for 30 minutes.

Check that the master switch is on, it's off by default. It's located on the right overhead panel between (and a little below, big T-switch) BATT1 and BATT2 switches.

The pop up screen behaved the same way, could not close it down. So I just ignored it, and after a few minutes it dissapeared by itself, haven't seen it since.

Will be interesting to see if they got the autopilot / GTN integration implemented correctly (this time..)

I know this probably a stupid question but.... I take it Carenado haven't bothered modelling the TPE331 engine (start locks, geared prop etc)? Does anyone know if any third parties planning to implement this  I appreciate that is a bit of an ask (given I know of only PMDG J41 and Aerosoft Bronco X that have done so previously)?

I dont know what the deal is with this company. Same every time. Their last release have a v 1.1 the same day as release.

 

Why do they release unfinished products every time??

Loving this aircraft. Everything came to life and ran as normal once that pop up disappeared.

 

Starting up from cold and dark works fine, vc and modelling superb and the two panel GTN 750's is a great option.

 

I can't work out why they did that with the pop up though.

Does the popup come on every time you load the aircraft or just the first time?

 

Tks

At least with me it comes up every time you switch from another plane to the Do, it even pops up when you switch between different liveries. I am too old for this crap and I don't want to wait everytime I use this "thing" for over 5 minutes before that pop-up disappears. And mind you, it's not a small one, it's fairly large and very annoying! 

 

Here is, how it looks:

It is written "This message will not appear at the beginning after the hour meter reaches 5 minutes." I'll see next flight if it's true. :smile:

Supposedly they did.

It's very strange indeed, that they spend months modelling an aircraft but so little time actually checking that the most basic things are working properly. What's another few days extra before release when it's been in development for so long? Sloppy and arrogant are the words that comes to mind. Looks nice though.

I really want this aircraft but i'll not be buying until there are more satisfied reports coming in...seems to be a bit of a lemon at the moment :(

Whoever dreamed up of that scheme for this Pop-up should be sent to Siberia for a few weeks.

 

Just deleted the option for that dreadful popup in the panel.cfg. That is the easy fix.

 

It is true about the 5 min delay, it disappears. (no need for the easy fix now)

 

However the a/c is beautiful and flies superb.

One should not be disturbed about such a small snag.

Dear friends, I'm trying to turn off the engines , but the levers for cutting are not going back.

 

Does anybody knows what´s happening?

If it's like the real aircraft, there is an interlock button that needs depressing before you can move the levers to cut off. You must engage reverse thrust as the props slow to ensure the props catch on the start locks.

Well what d'ya know? Very surprised at this! Thanks for the video link, most interesting, although I note they never once mentioned EGT :Thinking: And I wonder if failure to be on the start locks has consequences?

Sorry, but I can't find this interlock button. Where is it?

@ Daniales,

 

The proper way to shut down this bird is to use the start switches. First make sure that the start mode switch ( the one between the two start switches) is in the ground position. Right click on one of the start switches so it goes to the off position and hold for a few seconds. Then as the engine winds down, below 35% RPM, I believe, move the power lever into the beta position (F2) and then back into Ground Idle. Your engine and prop will now be in the start lock position, ready for the next start. I saw a video in which the pilot shut down both engines at once and then moved both power levers into the beta position and then left them there. You can do this, too, but you have to press the start switches separately and then press F2 to move both levers back simultaneously.

 

After your next start, don't forget to move the power levers back into beta momentarily and then into GI, or you won't be able to advance the levers to full power (because they'd still be in start lock).

 

Good luck,

 

Tom

obnoxious pop screen has not reappeared. I have flown two great flights, Great model. Now I can endorse it. Carenado, when you read this, don't do this again. Poor marketing of a really great product.
