The magneto switches are local variables (LVARs) and the applicable ones are Left_Lower_Magneto_Left and Left_Lower_Magneto_Right. These can be set to off (0) and on (1) but i am unsure if they can be toggled during a button press. (ie: i suspect when you press the button it will either set it to on or off depending on what you have selected). You could use 4 buttons to set Left on and OFF on two buttopns and Right on and off on two buttons but not sure that is what you are after.
I just purchased and installed the Warrior II and contrary to the product documents, I have a wheel faring selector in place of the inHg/QNH selector on the 2D panel pop out. How can I change this setting?
@shermank it is true that there is some torque effect on single engine planes, but trust me that ain't normal. I have flown an archer for several years and it is practically inexistent. The piper is a sweet aircraft to fly with.
Yes, indeed it does. The up/dn button should be depressed continuously whilst in ALT mode. The altitude should then change by +/- 500 ft/min. When the button is released the autopilot then maintains the new altitude. That's what it does in my (real) TB20 and indeed what it says in the JF documentation.
So I've tested it again, this time with the latest JF TB20 ver 1.8 running on XP 11.50. Sadly (frustratingly?) it still performs as originally posted, that is, "...on DN I'm getting a rate decrease of 1000 fpm whilst on UP I'm getting a dizzying 2000 (or more) fpm increase."
By the way, the fix (in ver 1.8) to the AP ENG button operation to be independent of the AP master switch works well. This now allows the autopilot to fly at a set pitch for climb and descent and ALT and NAV modes now appear to operate independent of one another which is also correct. Previously, all the autopilot did was operate in both modes whether one of either or both were selected. So although the AP in X-Plane is now more useable it's still not as good as the implementation in FSX (which I moved away from a couple of years ago), for example the TEST button and this particular issue.
Also, the small side window operation is now fixed in the latest version which was broken in the previous (couldn't open it).
Why the AP operation should be so different from FSX I can't understand. I brought this to JF's attention at the time the X-Plane version came out but nothing came of it. Unfortunately there's not an archive of old support tickets in my support account which would have been useful. Maybe the way to draw attention to such bugs is via this forum, but will anything come of it? Let's wait and see.
I am having problems getting the auto pilot to hold level flight. I have followed the instructions in the Manual's tutorial and it results in the aircraft pitching or ending up in a flat spin.
Is there instructions on operating the ap?
I have xplane 11.50r3 not sure the version of Vulcan I brought it 3 weeks ago though.
@Roger-Bush said in Air Hauler 2 for X Plane. I have Given up. !!!!!:
OK, I’ve had another go, and managed to complete a type rating for Carenado Brain 58. From Luton, I was told to climb to 3400 ft indicated, and fly various directions. I kept going until I was almost over Bristol, when I was told to land at departing airport. I was a long way from Luton, but made it back OK. One thing I’m not sure about, The green receiving light only comes on very occasionally. For a couple of seconds then goes red, disconnected. Is that right, or should AH2 be connected to Xplane continuously.
I think it would help you to visit the official AH2 forums. Loads of assistance and advice on various topics over there and you can post your own questions where they are likely to be answered in a quicker fashion.
Glad you didn't throw in the towel and hope you'll be enjoying it and getting more out of it soon, it's certainly worth the investment of your time.
