Falcon 50 GPU

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I picked up this beautiful bird today, and I'm struggling with the Ground Power Unit. I seem to be missing something when it comes to its operation, and I just can not get it to stay checked in the aircraft options page.

In the video below, you can see how I make sure parking brake is set, battery 1 and 2 is on, and when pressing the GPU unit, it just blinks and disables itself.

I am not sure if there is something I am missing - an aircraft on parking brake with or without chocks on, should be able to have the GPU connected no?

Here is the video: http://i.tivec.org/2019-01-09_16-38-25.mp4

 

Any help is appreciated!

We are fixing this issue as we found that there was a typo and only gen 1 had to be off when it should be all 3 generators. And we did not use the parking brake we use true airspeed of 0.1 which mean if wind is on this will fail. So we are removing true airspeed and using parking brake. Thanks for reporting issue.

Glad to hear! Any idea when this fix will be pushed to SimMarket? I can see that the change is on the website, but SimMarket is still showing 1.4.

Had a few issues with V1.5 so just waiting for good news as we are testing V1.6 right now. So not too long.
