PC-12 Version 2 Update

The question is what's your speed with flaps 15°?  Even at MLW the correct VAPP 15° is only 98kts. 

With 50% fuel and only the pilot on board this results in a conventional -1° to 0° pitch attitude.

With flaps up VAPP is 118kts

Geez, is that it on this thing? I'm most certainly going in waaaaaay too fast. I normally approach at about 100kts with flaps 30°

Explains a lot!

Most of the flight simulation community is pretty toxic and gets easily worked up about little things. Just go into it knowing that.

Here are the approach speeds   VAPP 0°/118     15°/98      30°/89      40°/84     

Unfortunately the fast/slow indicator on the PFD doesn't show any useable values.

Awesome, thanks.

Clearly this plane is not a good candidate for a busy Vatsim fly-in. But that absolutely would explain why I've seen some pretty crazy approach angles in my travels and the various YouTube videos I've watched of simmers. We're all going waaaay too fast.

Thanks for the update Bert. GNS530 still turns off when i switch panel lights on. I've received an email from Carenado, They can't reproduce this issue. They ask me to uninstall and reinstall but it changes nothing....

Carenado just told me that they fixed this.

Download a new copy..

Thanks for the head-up. Did they also fix the pitot issue or i have to use your mods?

Not necessarily. One of the main advantages of a turboprop is that you can keep high speed in clean config a very long time and drop gear and flaps very late in the approach.  IRL you wouldn't even think about flying on the ILS with flaps extended in a high density area.

Since we're talking about the PC-12...

Is there a fix for the problem where you turn on the instrument lights and the GNS530 goes black?

Bert's just told me that Carenado has fixed this issue. We just have to redownload and reinstall the aircraft. That's what i did and it works ok now.

That's probably why i always have a bumpy landing (too fast approach). I'll see next flight....

Thanks

Hi Bert,

I have not installed any of your mods before, I received the following:

DIGITRANS_PC12v5

panel.gtn

PC12 mods V2.0

I followed the instructions to install the contents of the PC12 mods V2.0:

I created a new folder called panel.New, extracted the files from P3D gauge folders then copied and overwrote the .xml files

I then copied the panel.gtn into the root Carenado PC12 folder, so I now have the following 3 folders, panel, panel.new and panel.gtn.  I copied the DIGITRANS_PC12 folder overwriting the folder within the panel.gtn folder.

Are there any changes visually to the VC or am I only to expect changes to the systems?

Robert
