I FINALLY got the flaps/slats connected to hydraulics.... sorry it took so long, only recently was able to figure out how to do it properly. Kinematic in JSB do not allow!

Kind Regards,
Josh

Some of you may have noticed AFS was overreacting, especially in altitude hold at high speeds, or low speeds. I have finally found the cause, and fixed it. AFS should be much more reliable now. Sorry for that.

In the next hour, I am also going to rework the LSAS and RCWS systems, as they also are overreacting (but not nearly as bad as AFS was).

Kind Regards,
Josh

PS: I also fixed the autoland system, it no longer slams the nose down after main gear touchdown, lowers it gently, and now applies the correct rudder and aileron inputs.

Got a report from a user that the MD-11 Autopilot was too lazy on roll with the slats retracted, but after extending them, it worked fine. Sorry...

This is because the aileron lockout device locks the outer ailerons when the slats retracted, reducing the roll moment that comes by yoke turning. To solve this, the AP now increases the roll axis gain when the aileron lockout device connects. Now it no longer is lazy :D

Also found more pitch issues when engaging AFS at high speed. Fixed.

Kind Regards,
Josh

Hey, so the MD-10 has no cockpit. Every time you go to the Captain view, there is nothing there....

same with the other interior views, none of the flight deck panels are controls are visible.

The folder should be IDG-MD-10X.

The MD-11X must be installed as well as the MD-10X.

Hello friends:
I have simulated System Failures according to the info.

Before I do the last FCTL ones, I need to finish simulating the FCTL control system.

Kind Regards,
Josh

Now all 4 LSAS channels are simulated, to their correct electrical buses, and hydraulic actuators for the elevator portion they control. The YD UPR and LWR A and Bs are also all simulated, seperately, and can be controlled via the overhead panel.

Notice the added Flight Path Director, as well as the gear/flap overspeed yellow bar, and the red VMO/MMO bar.

Image
This shot hows when gear/flaps fully retracted, we just see the VMO/MMO bar

The elevator feel system now also works, and you can switch to manual mode and change the feel speed at the overhead FCTL panel. Doing the Flap Limiter next, and dial a flap will be implement also.

Kind Regards,
Josh
