pemb1702.zip E170/175 Panel

Recommended Posts

Hello.

Is anyone by chance using the pemb1702.zip panel for E170/175 available over at flightsim?  I'm hoping someone else who uses it might be able to help with a question. since it appears the author is no longer available.

Thanks!

One question is that I'm wondering if there a way to change it so that the autopilot doesn't automatically enable immediately after takeoff.

Interesting! It only happens when using this panel?

Yes.  It's a "feature".  Gear is retracted automatically too.

I was just trying it and noticed the gear up automatically but never saw the A/P turn on until I pressed the A/P button.

You would probably have to do some editing in whichever .cab file holds the info for how the A/P works.  That would be beyond my paygrade.  It is a nice 2D panel for that aircraft and worked fine in my Sim which isn't FS9.

Maybe that's why the autopilot isn't kicking in then.  It's designed for FS9.

I have an answer. Based on my test flight yes it did automatically raise gear after take off. The Autopilot was already set on ground.

I looked at the panel in FS Panel Studio. I found nothing that displays which gauge is tied into automatically setting it. I do suspect gauge25=EMB170!Speedtrend,  1,1,5,5,3

may or not be the gauge controlling other gauges at a set criteria. This is an XML gauge and the author designed it on their own. Maybe even proprietary. This looks like a set of gauges that if one is edited or missing the rest fails. I wouldn't hamper with it. If you need further control I suggest Ken Mitchell's emb170km_panl.zip

It's not a sense of more control.  I do like the panel, especially the built-in checklist you can go through, it's just that I would prefer to be able to control when I want the autopilot to engage.  Which as noted is immediate.  The worst part is that you can't disengage it until, it seems, you are at level flight for a brief period of time.  If you try before then it just beeps like it wants to turn off but won't.  Until level flight as mentioned.
