Hi:
Added automatic flap limit, he will retract the flaps if you overspeed them. Normal flaps 50 is 175ias, here you can see it went up to 35 automatically (limits at 190)
Image

As you can see here, this is when not overspeeding

Josh

i'm blind... i don't see 35 in the first pic... i do see the two 50's with the square's around them but not 35 anywhere...

Same with the real plane, it retracts up to 35, then 28, then 25, then 22 as the flap speeds are exceeded. I specified 35, since it was at 50, so after the first overspeed it would have gone up to 35, hence why I stated the 35 overspeed knots was 190, which is why the screenshot makes sense. Sorry if I explained it poorly.

Josh

New development:
Realistic AFS disengage behavior. The "bitching betty" autopilot warning now cycles and is accompanied with a flashing AP OFF warning until you press the AP DISC button a second time.
Image

The same happens if you disconnect the ATS, you get a flashing red ATS off, but no aural alert. This can be cancelled by pushing the ATS DISC a second time. (To do this, I made the clickspot on the throttles for ATS DISC work.)

Will do the AFS OVRD switch soon.

Josh

AFDS OVRD switches now simulated, as if AFS/FMS 1 and 2 switching, including AUTOFLIGHT button switching between AFS/FMS 1 and AFS/FMS 2.

CLAMP is now simulated. Whenever you see a CLAMP mode on the PFD, servos disconnect from the throttles and they CAN be moved manually. (like T/O CLAMP, IDLE CLAMP)

The correct T/O CLAMP to T/O THRUST at 70% throttle lever then back to T/O CLAMP at 80kts is simulated for takeoff, you can "arm" the ATS on the ground when pushing ATS.

There is a sound too to simulate the servos engaging and disengaging!

Correct GO AROUND logic now works also, as does the GO AROUND on the throttles, as does the G/A limit.

Kind Regards,
Josh

hehe no problems,
Added LSAS Pitch Attitude Protections, so it protects from tail strikes, and added DUAL/SINGLE LAND modes. I also added APPR ONLY logic.

Attention @everyone If you are getting the IDG Aircraft from FGMEMBERS -- I strongly suggest stopping! We will be stopping to update that fork, and things like the MCDU update will not go there. Instead get it from my hangar: http://www.github.com/Octal450/

Kind Regards,
Josh

The exterior lighting has been fixed by legoboyvdlp, and I corrected many autoflight and go around button behavioral logic

I found cockpit footage showing the PFD during banks, I was able to schedule the yaw damper and turn coordinator to the same error as the real one (yes! the real one is not perfect!)

Hi Josh.
Q. How would you start the md-11x manually? Can of course start via Aircraft Config., but can't figure how do it manually.
Oh, & btw, when I turn on AutoFlight before takeoff, like you said to do, plane goes out of control after takeoff, & have to just fly manually. But I wait until after takeoff to turn on AutoFlight, it works okay.

Hi naplesAPF:
This tutorial should work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMJ309DZwOs

Of course, skip the FMC as I haven't done it yet. Anything not simulate yet will just not be clickable.

I don't know what that means "go out of control". When pressing AUTOFLIGHT for takeoff, all it does is arm the ATS (autothrottles). Once the thrust levers are moved past 60%, (about 75% N1) it will engage in T/O THRUST mode and set takeoff thrust. So I don't understand you problem.

Kind Regards,
Josh

Hello
Now MD-11 uses the IT-AUTOFLIGHT V4.0 based controller. Behavior should be same except less bugs, more FPS, etc.

Please report any issues here that I can fix them :)

Josh

Attention: the IDG-MD-11X now requires 2018.3.1 or later - if you have not done so please update your FlightGear version!
