Suggestion That May Help Save Erroneous Bug Reports.



  • So, my little brother and I both bought the Arrow today and I was trying to teach him how to work the HSI, track radials, localizers, etc. through Discord. He kept arguing with me that his actual heading was different than what his HSI was showing. After an hour of headache trying to figure out what the hell he was doing wrong (he has a history of messing with settings), it turns out when messing around on the ground, he had turned the HSI off and had the DG only. He then must've turned the DG select knob to something other than the present heading. Then, when turning back on the HSI, the Displayed heading and actual heading did not match up. After realizing this, he was able to rectify the problem by switching back to DG and rotating the DG select to present heading before switching back to HSI. Since the HSI does not have a DG select knob, it would be helpful if, when selecting, the HSI the addon would automatically align the DG. This would probably save many reports about this in the future.

    Otherwise, absolutely fantastic aircraft!



  • I dunno i think he was totally innocent on any messing around? I had a 30 min flight with my HSI set on the ground. It had drifted nearly 45 degrees by itself. May be another bug?



  • Could this be related to "Gyro drift"? Maybe the default key bind "D" will align the gyro and set correct heading?

    Did you two start with the DGI instead of the HSI in EFB settings? The HSI shouldn’t drift. It is slaved. Whereas the DGI will drift requiring constant correction with the correction knob. HSI doesn’t have a correction knob. So, the bug appears to be, if one was previously using DGI, the error accumulated there carries over when switching to HSI. The only problem is, on the DGI, there is no way to correct it.



  • @ual763 No i had HSI selected from the get go.



  • From my experience yesterday, the HSI doesn't appear to be slaved to anything as it should be. It behaves just like the DI with regard to drift when selected.
