Sorry.... fixed a bunch of graphical glitches in the FMA of the First Officer's PFD... somehow I missed that...

And now the DME is hidden in ILS info if that ILS has no DME.

Kind Regards,

The so called "female" MD-11 is now modelled, aka, stowing the center gear. Be aware this is not reversible, you'll need to load a panel state or use the future maintenance panel to undo it. As usual, Shift-Click is required for all such "dangerous" actions. I have to still figure out how to add the glass covers without breaking the light showing through them. The landing gear horn will not care about the center gear if this UP is selected.

Is there a 'center the controls' key shortcut for this aircraft?

generally speaking, the 5 on the number pad with number lock on should do it... that emits the '5' the same as the number line on top of the keys, too... you might have to use the in-sim F10 menu to enable the traditional numbers usage...

You also have to turn on Keyboard Mode in aircraft config.

OK I found a bug today that the ac tie and dc tie does not let the voltage drop until the source loses power. I forgot to account for this in the original design and never noticed it had to be fixed when I added the complex CSDs and varying voltages from different sources. Now fixed.

Also the electrical has been updated throughout the entire aircraft to use the minimum voltages from the FCOM.

Kind Regards,
Josh

Now the bank limits are totally redone. They are calculated based on the active modes of the AFS, and the aircraft speed (mach). All logic is simulated including as you approach Vstall, the bank limit reduces rapidly.

ATTENTION

Now we require 2020.3.1 or later, but we strongly recommend 2020.3.6 for the best expirience. Thanks.

Go around button:
Kills FLEX if active, reverts back to takeoff
Engages Go around mode if under 2500 AGL, and in flight (until nose gear on ground for 20 seconds)
Autothrust and Flight Directors turn on automatically
Autoflight if on, will follow FD commands

Now works properly

Kind Regards,
Josh

OK, few updates:
FMS calculated V1/Vr/V2 are now in, as well as its handling in the AFS systems T/O CLAMP and T/O THRUST modes.

Because MCDU doesnt work yet, its automatically set before takeoff and once you takeoff, it will keep that value and use it for the rest of the flight. Once the MCDU is added, you'll need to confirm the speeds yourself or the T/O CLAMP and T/O THRUST pitch modes will not function (no flight director pitch bar, and no autopilot available until switched into another pitch mode and FMS transitions into climb phase)

Kind Regards,
Josh
