Weight on Wheels from Offsets - FSX


Recommended Posts

I need to obtain a Weight on Wheels Boolean (1 if there's weight on the wheels 0 if not). I know there is no such parameter readily available from FSUIPC, I have been brainstorming how I could come about deducing it from the existing parameters. So far this is what I have:

- Check if landing gear is up or down - which wouldn't work if landing gear is not retractable

- Check Absolute Altitude - which one of the offsets is absolute altitude?

- Check if Speed is lower than Stall Speed - aircraft is most likely taxing

If all these conditions check then Weight on Wheels =1.

Any suggestions/correction to my line of thought would be greatly appreciated!

I would have thought the nearest you'd get to that would be the "on ground" flag.

- Check Absolute Altitude - which one of the offsets is absolute altitude?

What do you mean by "absolute altitude"? There's the altitude AMSL of the aircraft datum point, wherever that it, at 0570 and the ground altitude under the datum point at 0020.

If all these conditions check then Weight on Wheels =1.

I still think that's the same as the "on ground" flag.

Regards

Pete
