To the development team, I say thank you - sincerely, from the bottom of my black heart - for making the Archer III's sun visors transparent with the v1.3 patch. Got tired of being a Jedi padawan with the blast shields that it shipped with
x-plane 11 on Mac, JustFlight PA28 Warrior II v1.6.
(I haven't upgraded to 1.7 yet as I understand there is an issue with the pressure setting units.)
From cold, I've no issues starting the plane - all is fine.
However, if I turn on my battery, avionics etc without starting the engine, and let the voltage drop down over time and then hit the recharge button in the JustFlight popup window, I can't get the plane to start.
Fuel tank is correctly selected; fuel pump on; fuel pressure good; mixture rich; throttle slightly forward, etc. The engine turns over and prop turns slowly but engine doesn't start.
If I correctly understand it, the only issue leaving the battery on without the engine for a while is the discharging battery, which is corrected with the 'recharge' button.
Should I be doing something with the primer? Or something else?
I know I can hit the Just Flight control panel button to burst everything into life, and that works. But I wanted to know if this is a bug or something in the startup I'm not understanding and missing or something that v1.7 fixes.
Thanks in advance,
Ok just to resolve this problem and for anybody else with this...
This is not the normal pull to the left due to engine torque, it's much stronger than that, to the point that full right rudder or aileron would not counter the left roll.
I submitted a support ticket and it turned out I had 'use experimental flight model' ticked in the XP11 settings. This was due to a different mod requiring it. Disabling this has resolved the issue.
Using the Duchess model (downloaded a couple of days ago), works great, except I can't seem to tune the NAV2 radio (KX-155). I put the mouse over the NAV2 tuning knob and I get the cursor with up/down arrows, but clicking anywhere does nothing.
Totally agree with you I also have been flying simulators since the late 70's.
X-PLANE since version 10. Was flying FSX before hand and the plug in programs for more Traffic worked well with ATC.
I myself rely on ATC as i load flight plans everytime i fly like your self.
Being in my mid 60,s now i still enjoy flying but am disappointed that Global Traffic dose not work with ATC in X-Plane.
Just Flight don't do Support via forums - it's just general chat and discussion of products etc. If you have any problems with Just Flight or Just Trains software there is a dedicated support area available with FAQs and the opportunity to ask questions. It's possible that one of the forum members may be able to help but, if not, your best bet is to contact Just Flight direct.
