APU turns on during take off roll

Recommended Posts

Dear all

When I am on my take off roll I hear a click and as I am climbing out and look around I see the APU has started by itself. Am I doing something wrong that makes it turn on or?

Hi,

Have you check in the CDU>MENU>PMDG SETUP>OPTIONS>KEY COMMAND>MISC whether you have a key assignement for APU START/STOP?

A possibility would be that if you have a double assigned key that you press for another function that also triggers the APU start?

There is no APU autostart installed on the 747 as far as I know.

Yes. It won't turn on by itself, so something you're doing it is commanding it to. That, or you simply forgot to turn it off...

I had asigned a button for both TO/GA and APU switch :blush:

haha - oops.

Stuff happens. I was testing P3Dv4 the other day and assigned my PMDG commands in the FMC without first disabling/removing similar commands in the P3D menus (like CTRL SHIFT L, which I use for HDG BUG DECREASE for "Left"), so the aircraft labels were turning on and off the whole time - haha.

Kyle, you cannot stop teasing us, can you! :biggrin:

That suspense... you'd better watch your back when walking in the street, you may be abducted just to know what is coming! :biggrin:

P.S.: If you tragically happened to be abducted for real, don't consider ma as a suspect.:laugh:

Nope. I can't. This is the first big project I've worked on to this degree, and I can't tell you about it yet, so my only way of coping with it is to drop in random teasers. :tongue:

This has me really intrigued because I believe you've said no one has come close to guessing what it is, so I imagine it's something people haven't been actively demanding. But it's still something we're going to love. It has my brain in knots. But it's so fun to speculate...

haha - I flew DLH back in Jan on the 748 and the neo from IAD-FRA-MUC (specifically didn't fly the direct route to fly the 748 and neo). We'll see if I make it over again this year.

As much as I like cookies, I like my job more, though :tongue:

...all the same, it's nice running into you all at various events. Almost ran into serviceceiling on my last trip through.

So much extra-cookie-potential! Go on Kyle, you know you want to!
