Hi, As far as I know the Bonanza A36 from Carenado don't have a RMI - Route Magnetic Indicator in the cockpit... and many times when I am departing from an Airport, I need to tackle a VOR/DME arc. Many of the tutorials I find to proceed with a VOR/DME arc, requiere a RMI instrument, and I think I don't have any inside the Bonanza A36, so I am wondering if do we have any videotutorial or tutorial available showing me how to follow a VOR/DME arc without RMI? Cheers I don't see any RMI ?
Hello Avsimmers! I apologise if this is the wrong place, but I wanted to post this where I knew there was knowledge. Lately I have been flying the BEAUTIFUL FSLabs a320 around Europe, however into airport with long runways on 20 mile finals.... which can get boring. So I found some great freeware airports, (Paphos, Zakynthos and Kefallonia) but they all have VOR/DME LOC/DME and RNAV approaches. I watched a Blackbox711 video on these, yet this was very confusing for me as I didn't fully understand all the terminology he was using (e.g. Radial, Outbound Course, Inbound Course) I was wondering whether someone could explain (very basically) the difference between these and the meaning of relevant info e.g. Course, Radial, etc. Also, if you could explain how some A320 functions are used in these situations that would be helpful. Thanks! Canine
Hi everybody, Recently I bought a Carenado CT210M for X-Plane 11. During an investigation of problems I encountered with the BENDIX/KING HOL Display readouts, I discovered the following: When I clicked the "DME" button on the audio selection panel, I heard in morse code the ID "AFI". At that time I was doing a test flight in Belgium, near the city of Liège (EBLG). I started Navigraph Charts Desktop app and searched for the ID "AFI". The Navrigraph app told me that this ID belongs to a VOR-DME station at the city of "Affligem", Belgium, some 60 nm north of the city of Liège (if I remember well the direction). The frequency of this VOR-DME being: 114.9 MHz. Because I was not too far away from that station I decided to fly to it. I was asking myself: how come I hear this VOR-DME station while I had the X-Plane 530 (NAV1 / VLOC1) tuned to MAS VOR (106.8 MHz) and the X-Plane 430 (NAV2/VLOC2) tuned to LGE VOR (115.45 MHz) ? Next I turned on the X-Plane 11 Data Output for DME. I saw that the last column of this Data Output, with the caption "DME-3" was constantly giving the value "114.90" which is the frequency of the Affligem VOR-DME (in this region where I was flying the CT210M X11). There is/was no way to control the obviously fixed tuning to 114.9 MHz of the DME, of which the audio (morse code) could be heard via the DME button on the audio panel. Anyone that has more knowledge about this ? I would appreciate your reaction. Paulsk
