First of all my congratulations to the team who made this wonderful software!It is a rare piece of perfection.I simply adore the lines of the DC9/MD80/717.
I flew the F1 DC-9 classic and the TFDI 717 and they are really good.But in the DC-9 there is no FMC and it is hard to do the more modern flights.The 717,on the other
hand,is all glass,and I miss the old school panel.So the Maddog is the perfect compromise.The flight model is amazing,as is the internal lighting..
For me,I have 2 little problems.Maybe someone here can point me in the right direction:I keep on getting the slats auditory warning on Takeoff.I use the configurator
to setup the plane and then I set the CG in the airplane;For example,yesterday the CG was 10.5.I set this in the pedestal with flaps 15.It gave me 0.7 as output,which
I consequently set in the elevator trim.On Takeoff,with flaps 15 set,speed brake armed,autobrakes set to Takeoff,I got the slats warning and some of the engine
gauges were flickering;(I do not know whether this is related).Can anyone explain me the exact procedure to transfer configurator data to the Maddog?
My second problem concerns the weather radar.I have the Hifi Active Sky for P3Dv4 and I put this in the configurator .I can do the WX radar test,I can start
the WX radar in WX or WX/T,I can use the tilt command and the WX VAR, I know about the rotatory button on the pilot display to increase/decrease light intensity.
But to this day,I have not had a single radar reflection.I have been surrounded by clouds and bad weather,but never a radar signature.I want to say that I can
succesfully ask acars weather for departure and destination on the FMC.
I somewhat reminds me of the TDFI 717 which always had extremely little radar returns on its weather radar.Maybe there is a link there as the Leonardo team
uses the TDFI lighting software (trueglass and...).Anyhow does anyone have the same problem with the Hifi Active Sky program and the MaddogX?
I run P3Dv2 64 version on Windows 10.
Thanks for any input!
