Started adding the speed reference bugs. Will be adding all of them for flaps/slats/gear.

EDIT: Now all those reference bugs are done except vspeeds.. that'll wait till the MCDU done.

OK,
Now the tail tank works a bit, except the FMS CG fuel management - that'll come later. For now it works as additional tankage. The alternate pumps to feed engine 2 in the tail are also working - if you lose all the other fuel and still have tail fuel, you can power engine 2 from it! Seriously!

Kind Regards,
Josh

The aim is to push this to FGADDON in lieu of the current MD-11 model that I added a few years ago. I'm pretty rusty on my subversion tactics, so I'm studying up so I can move the old MD-11 to the attic before we do the replacement.

Thanks John! I also don't know how to move to attic...

I added chocks... now finally in cold and dark you won't roll LOL
Integrated:
- Autopush
- Aircraft Config Panel states, (as applicable)
- It stops the plane from move
- Only available on ground and stopped

It looks like there are a few animation issues I need to sort out on the landing gear scissors... but thats for another day.

Kind Regards,
Josh

This is really impressive, I've been enjoying this aircraft a lot. Quick question - is VOR navigation implemented? On the real aicraft this would be accessed through the NAV/RAD page on the FMS, and I haven't been able to find a way to do it here. Thanks for all of your amazing work on this.

Glad to hear!

No, but as soon as the RAD/NAV page in the FMS works, I will make the VOR Autopilot mode work.

Thanks,
Kind Regards,
