Black Square Duke Released!

Recommended Posts

I've seen a few people say that they can't get full power without "redlining" the Ng. It's possible that people coming from the default turboprops don't know that 100% is not the limit, it's like 102% on almost every PT6, or as high as 105%. Generally, the pilot does not worry about Ng when setting power because it's governed by the fuel controller.

Also, I'm really loving the comradery today with this release after the servers crashed. It's like we're all here waiting in line at the same concert.

I get an exceedance message above 101%.

That definitely isn't the way this plane should be flown.

My question got lost. So here again, has anyone the WT GNS 530/430 active while in SU15beta?

Has anyone successfully landed a Duke using an ILS? I activate Approach mode when approaching the FAF, it lights up and then the the plane kind of loses track of both the localizer as well as the glideslope. This is with the TDS GTN750xi and Nav1 tuned to the right frequency.

Ignore this if irrelevant, just a shot in the dark as I've occasionally forgot this myself. You DO have VLOC selected on TDS before ILS intercept yes?

I only had time for one trip around the pattern at KSBA last night but hand-flew the ILS approach for runway 7 just fine.  I was in the basic piston version for starters, configured with the KLN90 and TDS for maximum fun.  After setting the ILS frequency I just selected VLOC on the upper left corner of the panel and everything tracked perfectly on the HSI.

Very first landing with this bird was a gentle kiss of the tires at -48fpm right at the touchdown marker.  Love this thing already!

What would a typical approach speed be in the Turbine Duke? I've looked in the manual but wasn't able to find anything immediately relevant

It does give a Vs0 of 70 knots, which by the typical rule of 1.3 Vs0 would give an approach speed of 91 knots, but sometimes individual types deviate from this rule.

SU14 or beta 15?  As I understand the default autopilot logic doesn't have an APR mode during VLOC operations.  And when I mean I default I mean the old before WT made a new system.  Sometimes you have to fly on HDG mode longer than I would irl before engaging APR. 

or it could be the bug associated with the GNS in su14.

Just Flight Duke store

Pedantic comment of the day from me. I believe the title of this page should read:

"Black Square's spectacular MSFS Dukes are now FOR sale"

and not:

"Black Square's spectacular MSFS Dukes are now ON sale"

The current title made me believe (for about 5 seconds lol) that they were actually ON sale, ie cheaper than normal price.

I'll go back to my hole now, carry on!

I would guess you want to stay above Vmc (red line) And probably around Vyse (best climbing for single engine) So I would say 120ish kts would be good approach speed

Yeah I can use them.  Why do you ask?

What's the correct way of taxiing this thing smoothly? I don't use rudder pedals, so I don't have the smooth breaking axis and rely on my old trusty joystick trigger to apply brakes, which works in most planes. However, this thing taxis like a scolded proverbial, so it's just this constant rocking motion of picking up speed and slamming brakes 😅

Some interesting details on all variants in this page:

Beech Duke (Aviation Consumer)

TLDR Addition 😄

A Grand Duke fully modded has lower stall speeds-78 knots compared to 82 knots on a stock airplane in the clean configuration, and 70 knots compared to 76 knots on a stock airplane in the dirty configuration. The short-field approach speed is drastically lowered to 77 knots with a BLR-modded Duke, compared to 99 knots for a stock airplane, according to the BLR. You’ll see better climb, too, when equipped-nearly 350 FPM better when both engines are making best power. The new gross takeoff weight of a fully equipped Grand Duke is 7000 pounds, compared to 6775 on a stock airplane.

Finally a worthy successor to the RealAir Dukes. Absolutely gorgeous and a joy to fly. Now just missing the SimBrief and StreamDeck profiles.

You probably need to be in beta for taxing
