PFC driver- mcpex1 landing gear


Recommended Posts

I have recently purchased fds landing gear mechanism with the cpflight mcpex1 card .

I believe to have a problem of conflict with the driver pfc that I habitually use with my jetlinerconsole and the landing gear mechanism in gearup position.

Landing gear performs a light movement but remains in geardown position.

I have tried to physically disable the landing gear removing the wiring connection on the console but the problem is the same.

Since if only I eliminate the pfc driver everything works well, I believe there is something that interferes with these command that I don't know.

Some suggestion to avoid this problem ?

regards

The reason for this is that the gear switch position in the PFC hardware is one of the items transmitted by its controller at regular intervals, approx once per second. The PFC DLL has no option but to obey since it cannot distinguish between a genuine switch operation and a regular scan.

The only way to deal with it is to re-program that switch to do something else, either useful or innocuous, in FSUIPC's Buttons page. PFC support would have told you this f you had asked and would have saved you are rewiring job -- as it is you will need to reconnect the wiring.

Regards,

Pete
