FSLabs Airbus A320X 0.10a BETA (2 Dec 17)

60 posts in this topic

This BETA module is provides most of the important functions for buttons, knobs and switches for the FSLabs A320X. Further functions will be added when more data is made available by FSLabs. It has been tested with the LINDA 3.0.4 which runs under 32-bit and 64-bit. It is ready for FSLabs A320X v2 64-bit for P3Dv4.1.

This update adds disconnects for Autopilot and Auto Throttle (normally located on the joystick and throttle) which avoid the continuous warning alarms. The functions are AUTOPILOT_DISCONNECT() and PED_ATHR_DISCONNECT(). The buttons are not animated within the FSLabs simulation.

This update includes default configurations for all 3 types of VRInsight Combo MCP panels including one for Airbus model. Please note that due to the inability to access AP data (SPD, HDG, ALT and modes) the MCP Combo displays actual data. However, the knobs functions work with the Virtual Cockpit display. The other main shortfall is that none of the 'flat' buttons (eg. Master Caution/Warning, Auto Brake, etc) have been implemented due to lack of access.

A list of all available functions is contained in the download. NOTE: Some functions have been renamed and reorganised to avoid confusion and allow the pop up menus to be displayed on screen.

Installation:

Use the Aircraft Module installation functionality on the Maintenance page of LINDA 3.0.x. Alternatively, manually copy the content of this archive in your modules folder.

Your current configurations will not be overwritten, but always make a backup before starting.

v 0.3

Flood lights

any suggestions what should be shown in the displays MCP Combo 2 Boeing?

I find that every useful information is already covered in the VC displays, like APU spool up etc.

So I have currently no idea what could be useful. Currently I have implemented FPS and VAS

So, ideas welcome

As an Aerosoft Airbus flyer I would keep it simple. The MCP should just repeat the FCU data SPD/HDG/ALT/VS/AP1/AP2/AT/Loc/Appr and the AP modes SPDdot/HDGdot/ALTdot.

Just to add my opinion on this matter. I also believe that the MCP should repeat the data shown on the FCU.

 

Other types of data are welcome, but as a "Mode 2/3" function. I've been using LINDA with the Aerosoft Airbus for a long time and I've completely stopped looking at the VC for the AP data. I just look to the VRInsight displays.

 

Anyway, thank you for your effort in putting another module together. I was checking this forum everyday hoping for a LINDA release for the beautiful FSLabs A320. Let's hope they release an SDK soon and all your hard work becomes a little easier. Thank you.

Guenter - thank you for this amazing work, especially without the SDK on such a complex aircraft.

 

I have a few requests if possible.

 

- Are you able to provide a function to toggle the landing lights (both) rather than left & right.  I have one button assigned to this function.

- Request for Toggle between IN hg/hPa on the Baro.  Right not requires to buttons.

- Start the Elapsed Timer.

- Also, need to have the Speed pull assigned.  Right now you can push speed but not pull.

 

 

I recognise that not all of this may be possible, just asking.   thanks,

Mark - I think you'll find that all except the Timer are implemented in 0.2.

OK,  I see VC GSLD CP EFIS Baro toggle, great.

 

LL toggle,  I only see separate toggle for L and R, not for both.  Both, off, on, retr but not toggle.

VC OVHD EXTLT LL

VC OVHD EXTLT LL
Both retr

 

Speed pull - OK I see that on the rotary.  Assuming I can assign to the SPD button as well or is the idea on the Boeing style MCP to push once for "give to bus" and push again to replicate the pull to "give to pilot"

LL toggle .... why is there no toggle?

Must have forgot it.

Added it - redownload 0.3 please now.

You can assign as you like. Unfortunately we do not have pull knobs. SO I handle it that I assign push to the rotary and pull to the SPD button. Same with HDG and ALT and VS

Hello, Airbus FCU here, latest Linda and FSLabs A320 file, FSLabs A320 profile gets initialized on FCU monitor OK.

To some reason rotaries do not change values (SPD, HDG, ALT) in FSLabs A320x at all. I mean nothing seems to work in FSLabs A320x Linda profile. FPS and MEMORY display OK.

 

Aerosoft Airbus works without a hitch when loaded. What am I doing wrong or missing some steps? I'm quite new with LINDA/AIRBUS FCU

 

Thanks,

Dirk.
