Hi,

I've got a problem with the PMDG DC-6 - I know it isn't fully supported but there are other non-supported aircraft that don't have this problem.

Whenever I load the aircraft, with monitoring, enabled it complains that there have been engine failures, this is also the case when shutting down an engine.

Also whenever I try and lower the gear, it complains saying that I'm overspeeding and asks me if I'm sure I want to lower it.

Is there a way to stop it doing this? It'd be greatly appreciated.

Best,

James

Should be able to sort that one out.

Need to make a specific reference file for the DC 6. FO will then know the maximum landing gear extend and retract max speeds. What are they by the way?

Since I don't own a copy of the aircraft, what is the name stated in "Aircraft.cfg", under [Fltsim.0], "Sim=whatever_name"

Hi, here is the entry from aircraft.cfg

Thanks.

Sorry, my mistake.

Could you also include the [Flaps.0] and [Flaps.1], [Flaps.2] (if listed) and what are the actual flaps detents on the aircraft as labeled on the flaps lever scale?

OK, download this file

Unzip and add the file "DC-6B_v1_ref.txt" to \Multi Crew Experience\Reference\ folder.

Feel free to edit default V speeds as well as flaps detents specific speed limits according to Manual.
