[FSX 744 3.00.9019] Engine wobble vs. Lower EICAS VIB

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi folks, 

during my actual flight I pass some areas with thunderstorms and the (ASN) weather let my bird shake enormously. 

And the engines are shaking nicely as well! (Not the earlier exagerated one anymore.)

However, the VIB indication does not show a so much higher values: 

Average in calm air is 0.4-0.6, in the turbulence it max'ed at 0.7. 

Is this right? 

Would in the real world VIB show higher values with a broken blade only, but not in turbulence?

(Of course a broken blade --- contained or uncontained! -- is not simulated here.) 

Thanks in advance.

Yeah.

VIB isn't detecting engine shake. It's internal vibrations. Very, very different concepts.

Puh, I thought so... 

Else VIB would have shown higher values! Flawless PMDG! 

Thanks, Kyle!
