Help and Troubleshooting / Power percentage
« on: July 15, 2020, 03:52:25 PM »
Since some days I'm flying the A2A C172. Performance tables indicate specific XX% power settings in order to adjust cruising speeds, fuel consumption and RPM. I read the tool tips when hovering the mouse over the throttle. Is this the correct way to do it? If yes, how would a pilot in a real C172 know, lacking tool tips?

Thx,
Karl

That's, besides flying simulated airplanes, what I really like with flightsimming. The more or less realistic views combined with your imagination put you on a great journey, wherever you go.

And it will get more realistic with time to come.

If I was young again I would learn how to fly.

General Discussion / Re: MSFS2020 release date is August 18

I'm afraid that at release time there is no water operation as every single airplane has wheels. I also did not see water operation in any video.

But as you say, Robert, probably it will be there soon.

Robert, it's in the specs, see my post. So I think they take it for granted.

General Discussion / Re: Poll: What Sim do you use?

I think that's acceptable, Norm. Still, probably you should inform those users by email before deleting them.

And then, new members also have to know about that upfront before they apply.

This video features bush flying at Quartz Creek (RTMM waypoint R289A). The whole series is nice to watch!

Help and Troubleshooting / Re: Add an NDB to scenery
« on: July 07, 2020, 08:37:27 AM »
And that would be the correct way to do it, probably. The NDB rather belongs to the High Prairie airport.

Help and Troubleshooting / Re: Add an NDB to scenery

Thank you Steve, ADE really seems to be a very nice software.

As I just need one NDB I did some search in the V5 SDK and found how to create an NDB .xml file and how to compile it using bglcomp.exe. So I made the .xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<FSData
     version="9.0"
     xmlns:xsi='http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance'
     xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="bglcomp.xsd" >

<Ndb

      lat="55.395599"
      lon="-116.484001"
   alt="611.3"                   
   type="MH"                   
   frequency="406.0"   
   range="75N"                   
   magvar="15.5"                       
   region="CY"                       
   ident="2S"             
   name="High Prairie">

</Ndb>

</FSData>

compiled it, put it in and there it is, the new NDB.

The story behind is this book:

https://www.amazon.com/Into-Abyss-Extraordinary-True-Story-ebook/dp/B009CJK4GA

A crash caused by pilot error. A broken NDB (so just one left), low ceiling and  a calculation error made for a fatal crash. I want to refly the route but obviously the sim does not have the High Prairie NDB.

I tried Herves BGLNavEditor program. I used PF20 NDB.bgl as a start and tried to change it. But the program wouldn't let me do it.

Help and Troubleshooting / Add an NDB to scenery
« on: July 06, 2020, 12:22:24 PM »
How can I do that? Any of you can please tell me that this is simple and fast.  ;D

Well, I probably need to create a new .bgl file. But I do not know how to do that. Is there a tool for that?

I just want to add a single NDB with

identifier
name
frequency
position
altitude
range class
range

and then use it with my ADF.

Thx,
Karl
