RADukeB60 great but port gear NOT locking down

Recommended Posts

I was very fortunate to obtain and install the RA Duke B60 V2.

this is truly a remarkable aircraft. but after two long flights both times the left landing gear would not come down and lock..

The jury is still out as I have set for FSX & configured the aircraft to be damageable by pilot error.

----in the Duke config file its set to allow for flap damage if deployed too fast. (possibly this affects the gear too????)

Since its a new A/C and I haven't flown in a while it could be pilot error but has anyone had this issue???

You can bet after two belly landings after long flights I will triple check airspeed KIAS before deploying gears AND flaps above 174Kts kias

If I recall correctly you need to turn off crash detection and set your realism slider to full.

There is a typo error in the aircraft config file.

 

I was hoping thats all it was. I shot several pics and put on my FSXSTEAM there is NO left gear or strut only the door panel (and it opens)

Please tell me more..

Hi guys!

Make a backup of your Duke cfg file first

then copy and paste

point.0 =1,  0.82,  0.00, -3.75,  4000,  0,  0.633,  35,  0.13,  1.80,  0.35,   3.1, 3.1, 0,  152, 180 //Tarmac, non-castoring 
point.1 =1, -8.04, -5.40, -3.94,  6000,  1,  1.00,    0,   0.30,  2.50, 0.36,    3.1, 3.1, 2,  152, 200
point.2 =1, -8.04,  5.00, -3.94,  6000,  2,  1.00,    0,   0.30,  2.50, 0.36,    3.1, 3.1, 3,  152, 200

The problem is in the line of point 1 at the second 3.1. The original Realair was 3,1 instead of 3.1

Thanks, Pat.  I moved the the realism sliders to "non detect" in FSX and that seems to have fixed it.

If I have any more trouble I'll go back into the .CFG file . Thats the first place I look and then got warned away by the statement  The .CFG file integrates with another model file or something  and shouldn't be tampered with....

mikebxb you can correct the aircraft.cfg file as stated without fear to screw everything, provided you make a backup in a safe place (you can also copy and paste the aircraft.cfg file in the Duke folder):biggrin:
