Fuel and Reverse Thrust

Recommended Posts

G'day all,

 

I've been doing a bit of flying in the NGXu these past few weeks and really starting to get the hang of it. There are a couple of niggles that keep popping up though and I wonder if anyone has any insights. I'm on P3D 4.5

 

1. I use Simbrief and TinyNavMap for planning and they give me similar fuel figures. When I enter the flight data into the FMS though I often get an "Insufficient Fuel" message. For example, today's flight had this problem with these fuel figs:

 

Trip - 3546 kg

Block - 9410

Loaded - 10000

Remaining after flight - approx 6000

It's odd that I should be told Insufficient Fuel.

 

2. I've been trying to get the reversers working with very limited success. I'm using a FlightSimPM 737 throttle quadrant and have been mapping the controls successfully with Spad.Next. Even using the published Event IDs (Evt_Control_Stand_Rev_Thrust1_Lever), I can't even get it to move. Mind you I can't seem to make the reversers move on the console no matter how I click on them directly either. I've been able to work around using the standard "Axis_Throttle_Reverser(xx)_Set" but I don't know how much reverse thrust this is giving on the 600.

 

Anyhow, thanks for your help

 

Cheers


Warwick Finch
