#1 Question about Primary Engine Display. von sotiris 25.01.2008 20:39

Dear Matthias,
First of all, I want to thank you for your contribution to FS community.
Then, I have something to ask you about the abrupt and instant reaction of engines EGT indicators during engine startup. I mean that all other indicators (N1, N2, FF) right on startup react too fast and abruptly, but in EGT is more obvious. I don't think it is normal, for I have watched those indicators in the real RJ during startup 3-4 times so far.
Note that when I had the known problem (eng 2,3 not starting-control+shift+F4)
EGT indicators moved in a more real way than now. I had used control+E as a temporary workaround at the time, if this can ring any bell.
Thank you for your time.
Sotiris.

Hello Sotiris,

Thank you very much for using my ARJ panel.

About your problem:
Unfortunately I couldn't help you here because this problem belongs to the flightdynamic files of the aircraft and has nothing to do with the panel. I can change some minor things in the flightdynamics but to change the thing you wrote you need more experience than I have.

sotiris>Note that when I had the known problem (eng 2,3 not starting-control+shift+F4)
sotiris>EGT indicators moved in a more real way than now.

This was just coincidence. When pressing ctrl-shift+F4 you just set the mixture valve of engine 2 and 3 to full rich (1 and 4 is set by my panel automatically). The flightsimulator uses the fuel mixture parameter also as a fuel switch for jet engines. When using the mixture parameter in jets, it just has the two positions open and close. Mixture close is fuel valve close and everything else is fuel valve open. That's why it has nothing to do with the problem you wrote.

I hope that there is a good FDE designer one day who has enough experience and who will take care about the BAe 146 / ARJ.

Best Regards
Matthias

Matthias,
Thank you very much for finding the time to reply to me. It now occurs to me that the slower movement of indicators could be because I used control+E as a "last resort", and thus, panel followed a "default" way of indicators' motion and not of the aircraft own flight dynamics.
Anyway, thank you once more,
Sotiris.

P.S. Please, keep on improving this panel, as it is closer to real than any other ARJ I 've seen within FS community.

Hello Sotiris,

Thank you very much for your compliment. I'm very happy that you like the panel.

I'm currently working on the new ARJ panel. It will get all the new things of the actual BAe 146 panel (v 4.0) and of course a new pedestal panel. Unfortunately I could not say when this new version is ready, but I think it will come within the next few months.

Best Regards
Matthias
