hi Fervi,

These problems have been solved already in our git repo, but I forgot to push them to the official flightgear repo last time a new FG version came out.
I will push them there soon to make sure they will be fixed in the next FG version.
Meanwhile you could use our git repo version if you want.

Thanks for reminding me,

Eric

Hello,

I have been having some trouble with the Extra500 also. When I start up in the Extra500 the IDF screens tend to get stuck saying Remain Stationary, okay to taxi in 1 second. I am using the gitlab version already btw.

Thanks,

Sam

Hi Sam,

That should be solved when you are using the latest git. Are you sure you are pointing flightgear to the correct folder?
You can check the extra500 version you are using by going to 'extra500 - about'. It should say 5.4.0 (which is a typo, it is actually version 5.2.0). Version 5.1.0 still has the failure.

Cheers,

Eric

Hi Eric,

I have had a look in the about folder for the Extra 500 and I am using version 5.4.0 which you have said is the latest version. Is there anything you should do with the IDF screens when using autostart or should it all just be ready to go once auto start has completed?

Thanks,
Sam

The IFD-s take a bit longer to finish than the autostart. So you just have to wait (and do not move the aircraft).
In the extra500 - config dialog you can set the IFD realism to 'fast' to speed things up.
