Vertx DA62 DME/ADF

Recommended Posts

Is anyone having trouble getting the DME and ADF to operate?

Despite tuning in to the correct frequencies I can't get either to appear on the PFD.

And yes I am pretty au fait with the G1000.

Press the PFD soft key, the on the next menu press DME, that will make the DME readout appear next to your HSI.

On that same menu the BRG soft keys will cycle through the ADF and RMI pointers on your HSI.

Yes it does have ADF. You have to press the soft key for ADF/DME at the bottom of the PFD. Then a small box comes up in the bottom right hand corner. you manipulate the frequency using the large and small 'FMS' knobs.

I guess this is a good post to ask this question? Having problems with ils approach. I'm having no problems with A2A aircraft and in Xplane. When it's time to descend, the DA-62 starts descending correctly, but it starts diving well short of runway.

I set up the ILS approach in flight plan. Make sure I have the correct freq active. Set the course to match the runway. As I approach the final descent I switch to VOR1 and select APP. Everything seems like it is going well, but it starts going down quickly and I have to turn off AP to save the plane....lol.

Any help appreciated:) This has happened three times in a row.

I did not know that, I'll have a look at it, thanks for the info.
