Barber Pole errors

Recommended Posts

The "Barber Pole" is wrong on the 441.  At -40 degrees C/FL 280 it shows IAS limit of 170 KIAS (263 KTAS) which equates to M 0.44.....WELL below the 0.55 limit for the airplane.  The simulation is throttle limited at FL 280, which I can assure you it is not in reality, especially without -10 engines. 

It is and has been wrong on most Carenado/Albeo turbine products.  Question is....where is that calculation held for Carenado/Albeo products?  I can't find it in any of the gauges.  I would like to correct it but can't find it.

Simply open the aircraft.cfg file and if you know that MMO is .55 on the C441 change max mach accordingly.

e.g.

[Reference Speeds].
max_mach  = 0.55

It's a bit embarrassing to me that it was so easy, but it worked perfectly.  But.....it leads me to wonder.  Why would Alabeo publish an airspeed reference table for the simulation that has a Vmo of 245 KIAS and an Mmo of 0.55, but in the aircraft.cfg file they entered 255 KIAS and 0.44 Mach?  Oh, well.....  

Thanks very much.  I will spend the rest of the evening correcting all the other Alabeo/Carenado aircraft.

Don't understand the wrong MMO at all because this would indicate that they apparently never beta tested the release version.

To have VNE and VMO higher than the book value makes sense as FSX triggers a crash as soon as you go past this speed.

IRL e.g. VDF is way higher than VNE so FSX shouldn't crash at all when exceeding a limiting speed.
