Hi,

Thanks for the reports. I'll look into the XPDR thing - there could well be a bug in the way that the UI changes. BTW if you press the VFR softkey it will automatically change to 7000. (Actually, I should make this configurable ...)

Regarding the ADF: On the G1000, the ADF function is provided by an optional Honeywell KR87(*) . So you cannot set the frequency from within the G1000 itself. We don't have a 3d KR-87 model at the moment, and I doubt many actual 182s have the option installed. If you want to create one, I'd be happy to do any integration work required for the FG1000.

I should probably document exactly which of the G1000 optional equipment is implemented in the FG1000, as it can be confusing when optional features don't work.

* See page 6 of the G1000 user manual, and https://www.bendixking.com/en/products/ ... tion/kr-87

No, i tried it: it sets 1200.
for the c182s KT76C Transponder, i coded it to use the hardwired "factory" code from "/instrumentation/transponder/factory-vfr-code". That's not a standard property, but i didn't find one, so we may define it as such now? :)
The property is stored between sessions and just initialized if empty, so the pilot can change that permanently (trough the property tree, i have no GUI so far yet).

Ah, very good to know! That explains it. I did not see any transponder on MSFS2020 C172S and thus assumed that this is solved somehow different in current planes. That G1000 has a tuning window (manual, p. 118) which is also used to tune ADF in the MSFS version; and also i found some youtube videos from actual planes where this gets tuned this way; i fiund out this is borrowed from the Socata TBM 850 G1000 installation, where this is really integrated (there is even a manual from garmin for it, see p. 134 there)

Re: the transponder. Oops - I hadn't checked if it was US (1200) or European (7000) before I typed. Yes, using that property seems very sensible. I'll add it to defaults.xml. Now, shall we have 7000 as the default or 1200? I'm tempted to use 7000 so we have a European flavour to our sim:)

re: the ADF. That's very interesting that the TBM has a more integrated ADF.

Worth noting that 7000 is ICAO standard and not only european

I've fixed the transponder bug, and also added support for /instrumentation/transponder/factory-vfr-code to the FG1000. Turns out the c182s already has a GUI for this :).

On the Citation II i have 2 animations for the button.
Left click is 1200 and right click is 7000.

I have downloaded latest version from github master branch and I get error on aircraft loading splash screen - loading will never complete (FG 2020.1.1). I have tried with different aircraft's states with no luck. What may be the reason?

The reason is a missing property default in the electrical system; i already fixed this locally...
I must search the commit.

Turns out it was already public: https://github.com/HHS81/c182s/pull/333
Please try that version and report back :)

Just to let you know that I've implemented resizing the windows dynamically - just drag the edges.

Unfortunately this does not work for me. Was it committed to some branch other than master?

Hi camlileck,

Dynamic window resizing is not present in the 2020.1 release. It is in the upcoming 2020.3 release.
