iniBuilds A300-600 has been released! (reopened)

To add to what SAS said -- here is how I do it with the A310 (which is the same throttle setup as far as I can tell) with HC Bravo:

So I physically move the throttles to taxi out.  Then after clearance etc. and lined up, I hit the TOGA button.  At that point the autothrottle is in control (assuming as SAS mentioned, you have ATS1/2 set per checklist, and autothrottle is set in the AP control) and I physically move the Bravo throttles all the way forward.  Moving them all the way forward isn't explicitly necessary because, as I said, the autothrottle is in control, but I still do it for safety reasons -- if for example the autothrottle failed my throttles would be around or approx in the right location, certainly better than leaving them at idle thrust.   They stay there during my cruise and descent.

Then on short final, unless I'm doing an autoland, I will first physically move the throttles down a little, and only THEN disable autothrottle (along with the AP) and hand-fly it in.  By physically moving the throttles down a bit before disabling autothrottle, avoids a thrust bump on short final, which you probably don't want.  I've found on the A310, depending on weight, 56-65 N1 is in the ballpark for a short final thrust setting with full flaps.  Haven't flown the A300-600 yet to know what is best for it. 

Thanks so much for the helpful information! Very useful. I have looked at the Throttle calibration as well and I am trying to figure out how to calibrate the “Reverse Thrust”. I am assuming the A300 operation differs (No Detents) from the A320 and Boeing. Regards.

On the A310 for reverse I have it "sort of" working.   As you know on the Bravo airliner throttles they have those reverser levers.  I'm not at home right now to check but I think I set them up to the MSFS "Reverse Thrust Toggle" and flick them on rollout, and it does activate the reversers.  But it doesn't work all of the time.  Sometimes I have to do it twice, or then do it again to get the reversers off.

I figured once the A300-600 dropped, I would really dig into it and try to make it work better.

I don't think I'm going to mess with reverse thrust on their throttle calculation screen in the EFB.  Reason being, I don't want reverse on my regular throttle axis in this airplane, it's not realistic.  I want to use the reverser levers on the Bravo, which is closer to what the real plane has.

Just completed a UPS flight from CYVR to KSDF flight. other than user error on the landing, it flew fine. I got better FPS than the A310.

As I understand it, on this panel there is a small white needle (easy to miss) on each N1 gauge that shows throttle lever position--I would think pulling the throttles back to match that needle with the current A/T-driven power setting and then disengaging would make for a nice smooth transition from A/T to manual power control.

Anyone having trouble checking out using the inibuilds manager?

it's pretty overloaded right now. I would do it from their website.

I saw that in one of the previews for the A300-600.  I don't think that little white line exists on the inibuilds A310, which is what I was really talking about.  But anyway yes -- I agree, perhaps matching where that needle/line is and disengaging would make for a smooth transition.

So far, though, I *still* haven't gotten home to buy this thing and try it out (!!)

Thanks again. I have created separate Aircraft Profiles for the Bravo Throttle. Without a “Reverse Detent” I’m going to play around with the A300 Profile and see if I can come up with an acceptable Bravo Reverse Action using the reverse levers you mentioned.

Yes, I did, and now I am downloading it it keeps bouncing backwards.  I was up to 2.1Gb at one stage, then it bounced back to about 600Mb.  It keeps doing this in a cycle.  Frustrating! 

I had this with two other products of theirs recently.  I had to limit my download speed in the end (by using an old landline connection at 5Mbs :rolleyes:) to get them to fully download overnight.  Looks like I might have to do the same again.  Not good!


Call me Bob or Rob, I don't mind, but I prefer Rob.

I like to trick airline passengers into thinking I have my own swimming pool in my back yard by painting a large blue rectangle on my patio.

The strobes are not missing. They are just very tiny. The beacon though I also haven't found.

In what way? I suspect with A2A you are referring to wear and tear/need for external inspections, but do you mean its like A2A in that its both external and internal systems being fully fleshed out? 

Yup like the A2A and some other GA aircraft in terms of maintenance and wear+tear features.

But IniBuilds build their aircrafts all internal to the sim, based/extended on default FDE etc. They are one of the few devs who've built aircraft using the "native" way for MSFS from the ground up, have embraced the sim's computational fluid dynamics (CFD) flight modelling tech, etc.

Here's a breakdown from their intro video, and what they say about how it compares to their XP A300 version:

Systems and flight model: https://youtu.be/5mERB6lI8pA?t=953

  • "lot of changes and rework" over previous XP A300 version
  • "new LNAV and VNAV, lot more accurate"
  • "brand new auto-thrust, new auto-land and autopilot"
  • "improved systems fidelity across the board"
  • "brand new FM using MSFS's latest CFD tech, which gives it a heavier weighted feeling on rotation and landing, also simulates A300's characteristic poor roll control given the ailerons are not really at the end of the wing, etc .. all remade from the ground up"

Maintenance, wear & tear, etc: https://youtu.be/5mERB6lI8pA?t=507
Exterior visuals: https://youtu.be/5mERB6lI8pA?t=207
Interior visuals: https://youtu.be/5mERB6lI8pA?t=325
Sounds: https://youtu.be/5mERB6lI8pA?t=742

ahh you are correct just need to zoom way in. From the default external view they can't be seen. Anyway it was addressed by someone on their forum who stated any issues will be fixed

Is it supposed to be that quiet? Meaning hardly any wind sound. Maybe it's modeled like wearing a noise canceling headset?

Also the strobes and beacon lights are missing. You can see them reflecting off the ground but the actual lights are missing

The audio adjustment sliders on the EFB's setup area ship with each slider set to middle of the volume range. I would suggest moving them fully to the right and give it another go.

Thanks. I did move the ambience and environment full tilt right and also cranked my speakers a bit louder so that helped.
