After having done a few flights with the Dash8A (Q100) I like the aircraft a lot, FDM appears to be very close to what I observe while watching cockpit views of the real thing in youtube etc.

A few issues are troubling me:

In the HSI there is no course deviation bar, so it is not possible to fly NAV or APP to VOR / ILS manually.

In the Autopilot panel the HSI SEL knob doesn't change between LOC or RNAV, I'm not quite sure if it should, anyway I haven't found out yet how I can toggle NAV1 from RNAV to VOR/ILS.

My observation to the yaw damper is confusing: While on it should be easy to do a decent turn without slip manually and in autoflight. The inclinometer shows quite the opposite: With yaw damper "on" in autoflight the inclinometer shows slip and I can hardly fly a decent turn with aileron and rudder, with yaw damper "off" manual turn is easy as usual and in autoflight turn the inclinometer's ball is in the middle showing turn without any slip.

I can do with the latter issues, the missint course deviation bar in the HSI is a major problem for me.

Yours, Oswald

Hi Oswald :)

thank you for your kind words.

HSI course deviation bar: I have now implemented that, shoud be available with the newest update on FGAddon.

AFAIK, the HSI SEL knob is for selecting the pilot's or copilot's HSI as reference for the FGS (Flight Guidance System). You can toggle the nav source to NAV Radio using the V/L (VOR/LOC) button and to FMS using the AUX (Auxiliary Navigation) button. This functionality is now implemented as well.

I will have a look at the Yaw Damper and see what I can do.

Regards :)

Had quite a few further flights, HSI works fine including V/L and AUX button. Thank you!
Confusing is still the yaw damper issue, see above. I can handle it, apart from this:
Very fine aircraft.

QSeries version for FG 2020.3 update lost the HSI course deviation bar again, and the functionality of the V/L and AUX button.
Apparently the standard aircraft hangar in the launcher has changed from Aircraft-trunk to Aircraft-2020 and the migration to the corresponding folder in FGAddon has been an earlier version. Having said that, I wonder why the Aircraft-2020 QSeries folder has 202 MB while the corresponding folder in Aircraft-trunk only has 112 MB ...?

https://prnt.sc/whhpaw This modern plane has a wireless cockpit, but it's probably just a bug

It´s sad that the Q400 is currently unflyable due to the "wireless" cockpit. Would be great if it could be fixed soon :) Thank you guys!!!

Backported the fixed version from trunk to release/2020.3, try again in a few days (or as soon as the launcher shows an update available for the QSeries)

Hi there!

legoboyvdlp worked on some texture and model issues concerning the cockpit panels and instruments, thanks to him!

Additionally, I reworked the electrical system and added new Compositor lights to all variants.

Both of these changes are available from FGAddon/trunk, please report any issues you encounter, especially if you notice anything weird about the electrical system, as there might well be some new bugs.

Regards
