tncm 747

Recommended Posts

At the new tncm update by flytampa, when the 744 is on final it always reports going missed. I don't know why this is happening because in preliminary version the 744 lands fine. I went toI the flytampa forum and told my problem and they said to go this forum. The 744 always reports this because it lands 3/4 down the runway. I am using MTX51b. The default afcad is disabled.

Thanks

There must be something different on the runway of the new version.

You can help the aircraft by carefully editing the aircrafts config file. In there are three variables that help on short runways.

These are descent rate. increase from the default 1800 in steps of 50.

The full flap stall speed, reduce by 5 knots.

And the drag coefficients, increase from 1.00 in steps of 0.05.

Unless the airport has a severely misplaced landing system, you should find something that does not compromise other airports.

I changed the values and the 744 lands, Thanks. Are there any ways to make it so the plane is 50-100 feet above Maho beach instead of 200 feet? Thanks

I copied and pasted the sections in the config file I changed. If you want you can copy them in the sections or just change it manually where is is changed.

Under the autopilot section in the config file I changed the default_vertical_speed from 1800 to 1890

[autopilot]

autopilot_available = 1

flight_director_available = 1

default_vertical_speed = 1890.0

autothrottle_available = 1

autothrottle_arming_required = 1

autothrottle_max_rpm = 90

autothrottle_takeoff_ga = 1

pitch_takeoff_ga = 8;

max_pitch=10.0

max_pitch_acceleration=1.0

max_pitch_velocity_lo_alt=2.0

max_pitch_velocity_hi_alt=1.5

max_pitch_velocity_lo_alt_breakpoint=20000.0

max_pitch_velocity_hi_alt_breakpoint=28000.0

max_bank=25.0

max_bank_acceleration=1.8

max_bank_velocity=3.00

max_throttle_rate=0.10

nav_proportional_control=16.00

nav_integrator_control=0.17

nav_derivative_control=0.00

nav_integrator_boundary=2.50

nav_derivative_boundary=0.00

gs_proportional_control = 18.0

gs_integrator_control = 0.33

gs_derivative_control = 0.00

gs_integrator_boundary = 0.70

gs_derivative_boundary = 0.00

yaw_damper_gain = 1.0

The Flight Tuning Section looks like this:

[flight_tuning]

cruise_lift_scalar = 1.0

parasite_drag_scalar = 1.50

induced_drag_scalar = 1.05

elevator_effectiveness = 1.0

aileron_effectiveness = 1.0

rudder_effectiveness = 1.0

pitch_stability = 1.0

roll_stability = 1.0

yaw_stability = 1.0

elevator_trim_effectiveness = 1.0

aileron_trim_effectiveness = 1.0

rudder_trim_effectiveness = 1.0

Flight Tuning should look like this:

[flight_tuning]

cruise_lift_scalar = 1.0

parasite_drag_scalar = 1.50

induced_drag_scalar = 1.05

elevator_effectiveness = 1.0

aileron_effectiveness = 1.0

rudder_effectiveness = 1.0

pitch_stability = 1.0

roll_stability = 1.0

yaw_stability = 1.0

elevator_trim_effectiveness = 1.0

aileron_trim_effectiveness = 1.0

rudder_trim_effectiveness = 1.0

this is as close as i can get it

i'll copy and paste my changes to the config file so you can add them to your

induced_drag_scalar = 1.20

yaw_damper_gain = 1.0

and i watched 744's land in heathrow and LAX after i made thesee changes and there was no change to them
