Tupolev for fsx

Recommended Posts

I am interested in adding the Tu-154 to my hangar ... the Project Tupolev series seems excellent in appearance, and much more complete (and complex) in systems than most currently available fsx planes. Unfortunately the models are only for FS2004 and use a number of .gau gauges that won't work in FSX.I have found a "hybrid" version for fsx that uses simplified panels with only fsx compatible gauges. BUT the documentation is only in Russian, and all panel labels are Russian :( No joy in trying to start the engines with the usual ctrl-E...Has anyone succeeded in flying the Tupolev? Is there any helpul english documentation for the PT_Tu-154_VITAMIN model??Many thanksRon McKeirnan

Ron, if you search the 'tupolev forums you will find a thread that gives you a pictorial startup.I printed them out and have no problems but, I am using it only in FS9.

Many thanks for the suggestions.I found that illustrated startup guide on the Tupolev forum thanks. It shows lot more gauges and switches than the modified FSX model has -- so I will now just take my time to work through identifying which ones are there, and the order in which they should be operated. Hopefully I'll be up to taxi and take-off within 24 hours!!If I crack the code, I'll prepare an FSX version and post it in hope others may discover the flightsim riches coming out of Russia etc... Just now the Project Team don't seem too keen on developing FSX models as so many of their gauges are of the old .gau type.Ron
