Heading Concern in Default 172 and 182

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,I posted a thread in the MSFS General Forum. Maybe I should have posted it here. It has to do with the heading being off 9-14 degrees after flying even a simple pattern.- If you can take a look, that would be great. :-)http://ftp.avsim.com/cgi-bin/dcforum/dcboa...orum=DCForumID8Thanks in advance,Joe :-wavehttp://home.attbi.com/~jranos/mysig.jpg http://avsim.com/hangar/air/bfu/logo70.gif

The Microsoft gyros are crap! Simple as that. Better off buying something from a known quality maker :)The drifting experienced is way far off. If I'd experience that much drift in a real airplane (I'm not a real pilot btw, but a frequent right seater) I would never have gone off for some serious cross country flying. (ehh, gone off??? sorry about my english).If the MS gyro is vacuum powered, and gyro drift is enabled, it will drift much more than I've ever seen in real life. Gyros *can* be faulty though, and drift much more than usual, but I think MS got it way too much.The electrical gyro that is most frequently used together with a HSI system, used in more advanced planes, does not suffer from this.I think it might be possible to add correct gyro drift within gauge code though. Check a slaved switch, then add time*value to the indication as appropriate or something along those lines. Designers, do you read this? ;)
