Ok, I will carefully work my way around these items for the merge. Anybody working on (fg) checklists? I'd like to do engine start for the EC-145.

Checklists are going to be depreciated . Any future checklists will need to use canvas from a near future release so we abandoned the current checklist we were doing for it.

Yes, but that's for the H-145 in fact (current cockpit is a H-145). EC-145 will have twist grip settings and other steps for startup. I will do that in a type-specific help text..

I've just noticed, that the Strobe switch turns on the beacons and the A.Coll switch turns on the strobes...

Some posts were split off to the new topic The future of checklists.

Also just to be safe:

From an aircraft perspective, my recommendation would be just to keep on writing checklists using the existing format (see README.checklist) and flag any bugs you find, or suggest enhancements.

Thank you! I will have a look into this. I am anyway currently extending the electrical model to connect more of the instruments.

I also plan to go on with checklists..

The Stobes are an easy fix. Just a matter of swapping the properties over.
