MCP1 (Original) Question - Knob 'B' Values

Recommended Posts

This is an important question for VRi MCP1 (original) users.

 

The MCP Combo page lists settings for the Knobs for + and - rotation broken down into 2 groups A and B. For example,

 

-- EFIS MINS knob

MINS = {
["A SHOW"] = A172_EGTref_show  ,
["A  +"] = A172_EGTref_inc  ,
["A ++"] = A172_EGTref_incfast  ,
["A  -"] = A172_EGTref_dec  ,
["A --"] = A172_EGTref_decfast  ,
["PRESS"] = VRI_KNOB_MODE_toggle  ,
["B SHOW"] = Rudder_Trim_show  ,
["B  +"] = Aileron_Trim_right  ,
["B ++"] = empty  ,
["B  -"] = Aileron_Trim_left  ,
["B --"] = empty  ,
}
 
The B group settings are not used on the Combo MCP Boeing or Airbus panels and are redundant. I believe these were implemented before the multiple modes were implemented. I need to know whether they are still used on the MCP1. It would also be useful to understand how they are used and switched. I am calling on those with a long memory to help me.
 
This feedback is important as I am in the process of removing these redundant legacy settings.
