Nice aircraft but 2 major bugs found

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

First, this is one of the Carenado planes of which I'm not disappointed. I really enjoy it very much. But I noticed 2 major bugs in the FSX version:

1. Flight plans are not loaded in the G1000

2. Fuel from the aux tanks is not usable. You just can fill them, but I found no way to use the fuel. They seem to be not directly connect to the engines (like the real DA62) and the transfer pumps (from aus to main tanks) doesn't work.

Any idea how to fix it?

Don't think the flight plans not loading is a bug, I just don't think it has the capability to load them, you have to input them manually, which is a bit rubbish, but it's not actually a bug, just a limitation. The fuel transfer issue certainly is a bug though, you are supposed to transfer fuel from the auxiliaries when the main tanks get to 15 gallons, but the pumps don't work, the only thing you can do is 'fudge it' from the P3D/FSX menu.

It flies well and looks great, but the fuel issue certainly needs addressing, and it would be nice if they added the ability for the systems to read an FS plan rather than having to put one in manually. Being that this is a Carenado add on though, I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for these things to be addressed by them, although they may possibly be pressured into fixing this by the imminent arrival of the Vertx Flight DA62, since that's probably already putting a dent in the sales figures, and these issues aren't likely to help in that regard.

Did a little work around for the fuel system today, to make the fuel in the aux tanks usable. In the aircraft.cfg I replaced this:

[fuel]
//Longitudinal (feet), Lateral (feet), Vertical (feet), Usable(gallons), Unusable (gallons)
fuel_type = 2
number_of_tank_selectors = 2
LeftMain  = -1, -3, 0, 26.0, 1.0   
RightMain = -1,  3, 0, 26.0, 1.0
//LeftAux   = -1, -5, 0, 18.5, 0.3
//RightAux  = -1,  5, 0, 18.5, 0.3

external1= -1, -5, 0, 18.5, 0.3
external2= -1,  5, 0, 18.5, 0.3

 with this;

[fuel]
//Longitudinal (feet), Lateral (feet), Vertical (feet), Usable(gallons), Unusable (gallons)
fuel_type = 2
number_of_tank_selectors = 2
LeftMain  = -1, -3, 0, 26.0, 1.0   
RightMain = -1,  3, 0, 26.0, 1.0
LeftAux   = -1, -5, 0, 18.5, 0.3
RightAux  = -1,  5, 0, 18.5, 0.3

//external1= -1, -5, 0, 18.5, 0.3
//external2= -1,  5, 0, 18.5, 0.3

 

It makes FSX using the fuel in the aux tanks first and then it switches to the main tanks automatically. So you can use the whole fuel capacity on long flights,

Is this with v1.1 installed?  Because the Carenado changelog says:  

-Fixed a Cold and Dark issue about a wrong setting of the fuel tanks

Yes, it's v1.1. I tested it before I made my changes in the aircraft.cfg, but it was not fixed in v1.1 in fsx.

It's the same way how it's made in the Alabeo DA42.

Has anyone found a way to import flight plans in the G1000?

I replace my (DA 62) panel gauge parts w/  ALABEO C400 CORVALIS TT  (C400_G1000!G1000_MFDC400) and some tweaking works fine!

so customer service was no help. Did not know  v1.2 was out  My bad
