xml to control flight dynamics on Cessna421B

Recommended Posts

I have this code snippet:(* CROSSCONTROL EFFECT SCALE 0.6 GEAR EFFECT SCALE 0.4 TOTAL *)0 (A:AILERON POSITION,enum) /-/ (A:RUDDER PEDAL POSITION,enum) * max 0.6 * (A:GEAR TOTAL PCT EXTENDED,enum) 157.0796 * 2 * sin 0.4 * + 16384 * (>K:SPOILERS_SET)that seem to work as I hoped on the default 747 to control spoiler deployment based on:1) Crosscontrolled input to simulate extra sideslip drag, and2) Gear position, sined, to control some large doors that only create additional drag while those doors are in transit (separately from the 'normal' gear doors). They are closed while the gear is up or down.On the 747 you can see the spoiler handle move automatically or the spoilers themself in spotview that confirms operation of the code. More importantly, check the speeds :)Now, I'm obviously not going to use this in the 747, but in a C421B that have these extra doors. While I'm happy that this works on the 747, and hopefully soon on the Cessna (which doesn't have a normal spoiler, and an attempt to deploy it manually will be overridden by the code), I was wondering:Is there something I'm not considering here? I just have a weird feeling.
