v0.1.4 Observed reactions
Just attempted my first flight with 0.1.4. Results:
- I like the development direction for the EFB. Payload loaded correctly from Simbrief but fuel did not - had to adjust manually.
- The autopilot master switch on the glareshield panel appears inop. It still lights on or off with the Autopilot engage/disengage toggle on keyboard or joystick, but clicking on it does nothing.
- Crash to desktop about 3 seconds after rotation, before any commands to raise gear or anything else. Liftoff, then boom.
@dreadnought1906 For number 2, the AP light on the glare shield is not supposed to be a click spot, the autopilot button is on the center console.
Was your SimBrief OFP using KG or LBs for the fuel?
The second point has been covered above.
We're not aware of any CTDs caused by our aircraft so we'll need you to submit a support ticket so we can investigate that issue: https://support.justflight.com/support/tickets/new

@dreadnought1906 is the crash a real CTD with no error or is it an "aircraft overstressed"?
Only ask because when I had a "brutal" TCA joystick curve I could pretty reliably trigger a crash immediately after rotation in the 320nx.
@jmarkows : Got it - I swear that button used to be pushable, wasn't it? Anyway the autopilot toggles nicely with a button on the joystick.
@Martyn : I normally use pounds, and this is the the only such crash I can remember - I suppose I've done maybe 50 ground-to-ground flights so far. I repeated the exact same flight later and had no problem, so I can't call it repeatable. If it happens again I'll open a ticket.
@b3lt3r : No errors. As I recall, I had just taken off, maybe a couple of seconds in the air, gently climbing at 10-15 degrees nose up, Right about the time I would have expected the CP to say "positive rate, gear up" (though I did not hear it).
It looks like our EFB logic is assuming that the SimBrief OFP fuel quantity is in KG. We'll get that fixed.
@martyn I believe I had or still have an open ticket about that, if that helps at all.
