    HNAC A300 Help

    I'm looking for some help with this aircraft: specifically, how to use the various functions (A/T, V/S, Speed, ALT Hold, etc.) to get this bird off the ground and in to level flight. It is very different from the other Airbus aircraft I've flown. The manual does a good job of describing the systems but lacks a step-by-step process for the flight phases.Any help would be appreciated!Thanks.Pete in KORD
  3. Hi Ridgel:I placed the mach gauge in its own subdirectory under the gauges folder and got it to work. Thanks so much for providing this.I really appreciate your help!Pete in KORD
  4. Thanks, Ridgel. I'll try putting it in its own folder when I try it tonight after work. Again, I appreciate your help!Pete in KORD
  5. Thanks, Ridgel, for yor help. I followed your instructions above; however, the gauge does not appear on my panel. Do I need a CAB file or GAU file for it? I tried another XML gauge as well and was not able to display that either. I tried positioning your gauge in a few different places with the same result. I'm new to XML gauges, so I appreciate your assistance!Here are the last 3 lines from my panel.cfggauge65=CONCORDE!AP-Hdg-Window, 405,719,40gauge66=CallSignPlate!CallSignPlate_tan, 251, 362, 104, 36gauge67=MACH,100,402,48,36Thanks so much!Pete in KORD
  6. Wow. Thanks, Ridgell, for the quick reply and offer. I'm not a gauge designer (though would love to learn). It would be a simple rectangular shape, say 48 pixels wide by 36 pixels high. Black background, with white numbers would be fine.Pete in KORD
  7. Can anyone point me to a freeware digital mach gauge? I'm unhappy with the display of the current analogue one I'm using and would like a simple rectangular gauge that displays % mach.Thanks.Pete in KORD
  8. Thanks, Luis. Great minds think alike! I was hoping these charts would provide some guidance as to various outside air temperatures at takeoff. It only provides one temperature (standard 15c/59f). Besides altitude variations (which it does provide), high air temperatures (such as the one I had yesterday 23c) increase the takeoff roll dramatically.Best,Pete in KORD
  9. Hi Staffan:I found just what I was looking for at the link below. This gives takeoff and landing distance required for all DC-9 models. Also data for payload/range. Might be worth a look.http://www.boeing.com/commercial/airports/acaps/dc9sec3.pdfThanks again for your help.Best,Pete in KORD
  10. Hi Staffan: Quick question. Do you know where I can get some performance charts for the DC-9, specifically, TODR (takeoff distance required). My takeoff in my DC-9-41 from KMDW yesterday used about every inch of the available 6,522 ft. runway (31C). I then learned that the DC-9 is notorious for a long takeoff roll. That combined with the high temperature 23c made the takeoff very interesting. This would be very helpful in planning future flights.Thanks.Pete in KORD
  11. Hi Staffan:Tried your sequence and it worked perfectly! Thanks so much for your assistance! Keep flying the DC-9!Best,Pete in KORD
  12. Thanks, Staffan, for providing that sequence. I think I know what I've been doing wrong: not capturing the LOC first, but going right to the ILS. I'll give your sequence a try and report back. Again, thanks so much for the help!Best regards,Pete in KORD
  13. OK, Staffan, I'll give it a try. Thanks so much for your assistance!It is truly appreciated!Pete in KORD
  14. Steffan: The merge worked fine until I engaged the ILS (with the FD on Radio Auto) on final. The aircraft then went into an uncontrollable nose-up attitude, lost airspeed and stalled. Any ideas?Thanks.Pete in KORD.
  15. Excellent! Thanks, Steffan, for saving me the merge work! I'll report on my progress.Best,Pete in KORD
