Quality Wings 787 Panel States

Recommended Posts

I note that the Quality Wings 787 does not automatically save fuel load and payload that has been entered in the EFB (and transferred across to the aircraft). There seem to be two statements that I can add to the QW787.cfg file regarding fuel, but I would like to know which statements I need to add so that any EFB calculations (fuel and payload) will be retained when I load a saved flight scenario. For the record, I always build my flightplans in the FMS (as opposed to importing them from elsewhere).

I also note that the panel lighting settings do not appear to be saved (which mimics what I see in the BAe 146).

Can anyone point me in the direction of a tutorial flight for this aircraft? I am not interested in YouTube videos. I would prefer to have a PDF document like the Tutorial #1 documents for each of the PMDG planes. I need easy to understand step by step instructions.

EDIT: On a side note....I do not seem to be able to add a figure for RESERVE FUEL in the FMS. Does anyone else have this problem?

Hi Christopher,

In the Quality Wings folder inside P3D there is a Documentation folder which has a Tutorial PDF. There are 5 different modules within that document and it's quite extensive (187 pages). I haven't done the tutorials but do refer to the PDF often.

Hope this helps!

Thanks, Gerald. I did notice the tutorials, but did not scan down far enough to realise that they were more comprehensive than I had thought! I assume that you do not have a problem entering a RESERVE FUEL amount in the FMS? I do not understand why this feature is not working on my PC, unless I need to access the PERFORMANCE page in the EFB first :huh:

No issue for me, enters fine on the PERF INIT page.

Not to say I haven't had my share of issues, mostly with VNAV and T/D calculations. I've gotten around some of them by editing out any block altitudes in STARS, the plane hates those...
