Guys, I've met a problem during the development of the CDU, the font.
This CDU is using osgText and I'm not planning to change it to canvas or something else, but I'm willing to use a better font for it. However, I didn't found any method to use a font besides the font in FGData. And unfourtunely, the cdu font in the FGData, which seems nice to use somehow, are missing support of lower case letter. Do someone knows what should I do?

Kind Regards,
Sidi

I 'm still experiencing this. When switching off the autopilot (setting /instrumentation/afds/inputs/AP to false via a Joystick button), the trim gets reset to 0, causing the plane to dive (because it was trimmed nose up according to the flap setting). I 've looked briefly to the AP-config file, but since I 'm not familiar with it I didn't find the logic that was causing this. Could you look into this? I'm taking the 777 to FSweekend and would like to display a flawless simulation to attract new users :)

I can look into it myself too, but since you are more familiar with it, I guess it 'll be more efficient if you did this.

Thanks a lot!

OK, give me a few days. I'll get it fixed by Friday.

Thanks a lot! Don't feel pressured, I 'm late with this reminder also so no hard feelings if you don't solve it by then. I 'll take a look later today also, maybe I can help you out :)

I know why the problem happens, due to the way the auto trim systems works... So I'll redesign it.

Yes I have exactly the same problems, I have to hold my joystick nearly right back to prevent a very sudden and SHARP nose dive towards the ground!!! When streaming live on Youtube makes me look like a complete novice!!! :oops:

See my above post. Will fix soon.

Kind Regards,

PS: it really needs proper flybywire. That would further help this, and make the logic for autotrim easier.

I think you can add these two liveries to git for this model 777-300
