I just got an email that the intention indeed is to get it in FGAddon at some point.

cool :)

"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."

Hello,
i am new to aircraft modelling and had my first try with porting the magneto switch from the c172 over.
You can see my current progress here: https://github.com/hbeni/c182s/tree/int ... netoSwitch

What works is that the switch rotates according to its state and also the starter cranks the engine.

However, switching the magnetos back to OFF state keeps the engine running, and also when switching to just one magneto, the RPM is unaffected by this (but should loose some RPM like it does on the c172?).
I fiddled around alot already but was not able to find the spot where this is implemented in the c172, can anyone please give me a kind hint?

Resolved in commit e431c2c.
Magnetos are currently referenced by is /controls/engines/engine/magnetos, not /controls/switches/magnetos. for some reason, starter is controlled with /controls/switches/starter ??
It looked like switches/magnetos property is just a read-only reflection to the engine one but changing it did not yield any result.

Just to want to let you folks know, the c182s development made a huge progress the last months:
  • the fuel system is now much more detailed; correct priming procedure is needed to start the aircraft
  • fuel contamination was added together with the sumps (sample not only the wings but also fuel strainer and selector valve)
  • the oil system is implemented
  • the radio/instrument stack now works like in the c172
  • the Davtron clock is usable
  • the autopilot is not doing weird things anymore
  • the GMA audio panel is working
  • radio stack has proper lighting
  • cockpit interior has been improved for better usability (hitting those switches is easy now)
  • a new blue livery was added, supporting custom registration
  • checklists have been included
  • Preset states are implemented, supporting autostart and also an auto-feature that determines the start-up-state based on starting position
  • Airplane state can be restored in the next session
  • the DMA works correctly now (frequency-hold mode etc)
  • Cockpit has now many OSG help texts
... and some more minor things :)

I am looking forward for my next sheduled flight from EP07 to EDDR :wink:

Any real c182 pilots around?
What are typical oil temps at max economy cruise?

Hello! Just tried the aircraft, very nice :)

Quick question, is the instrument panel background lighting illumination (similar to c172p) implemented? I was able to activate it for the radio panel, but not for the instrument (airspeed, heading, VSI...)

Thanks!

This is the same that is on fgaddon?

The development is done on github and once a new release is finished it gets uploaded to fgaddon.

You probably already noticed it, the knobs have an inner and outer ring: (already in the current fgaddon version): Image

Hello @benih,

Thanks for the quick reply. I completely missed that...

Can you confirm that the glareshield light only illuminate the radio stack (from radio control down to autopilot)?

Also, the pedestal lighting seems to have no effect. I tried from 0 to 100%.

Thanks in advance!

No, the glareshield light should also illuminate the panel.
You need ALS enabled and better graphics settins active to see the effect.

The pedestal light should illuminate the fuel selector and trim region.

Just tested this aircraft and... wow, it is really amazing! I have a problem to start the engine manually though (using version from FGAddon -
launcher). I follow the checklist procedure of course:
- mixture idle cut off
- thrust - 10% - 15%
- fuel pump on
- mixture full rich - I can see fuel flow increases, than it is stable for 2 or 3 seconds and then it drops down to 0 - is it normal behavoiur? (fuel selector set to both)
- mixture idle cut off
- fuel pomp off
- when starting the engine it is definitely turning (master switch on) but it does not catch for some reason so I even do not have a chance to set mixture to reach as the checklist says.

What am I doing wrong? Does the mixture should be at idle cut off when starting the engine?

You are flooding the engine. Depending on outside temps you usually just need to achieve stabilized fuel flow which happens after 3 to 5 secs.

When you flooded the engine the procedure is:
- mixture cut off
- throtfle 1/2 to fully open
- crank till engine fires, then promptly open mixture and open throttle.
