Real Air Duke Fuel Switches


Recommended Posts

Hi-

I am a new FSUIPC user and just downloaded version 4.8 and setup my Duke. I am copying my ini file for reference. Everything seems to work fine except for the darn fuel switches on the floor between the seats. Normally I just grab them and move them to turn them on so fuel will flow. After installing and setting up the Duke, that seems to no longer be happening. Not sure if its something I did or an interaction between the Duke and FSUIPC. I can start the engines with Ctrl E and they work fine. Just would like to start them myself. The grab and turn works fine for all of the other switches - radios, gps, start keys. I also tried the left and right click and no luck. It's only with these fuel switches!

Any help would be great, otherwise, all seems fine.

Everything seems to work fine except for the darn fuel switches on the floor between the seats. Normally I just grab them and move them to turn them on so fuel will flow. After installing and setting up the Duke, that seems to no longer be happening. Not sure if its something I did or an interaction between the Duke and FSUIPC.

There wouldn't be any interaction unless the Duke is using some FS control for its fuel switches which you've reassigned in FSUIPC. That doesn't seem likely.

The grab and turn works fine for all of the other switches - radios, gps, start keys. I also tried the left and right click and no luck. It's only with these fuel switches!

I assume you mean 'grab and turn' using the mouse?

The only similar problem I've ever seen is with the MCP knobs in the PMDG 737NGX, which won't work properly if the Cowl Flaps 1 axis is calibrated in FSUIPC. For some odd reason, that control is used in the NGX to operate those knobs!

Your calibrations don't seem to include anything likely to be re-used by the aircraft for anything different:

Elevator=-16223,0,0,16383

Throttle1=-16380,-512,512,16380

Aileron=-16384,0,0,16383

Rudder=-16384,0,0,16383

Throttle=-16384,16383

PropPitch=-16384,16383

Mixture=-16384,16383

LeftBrake=-16384,16383/16

RightBrake=-16384,16383/16

Though you seem to have both the generic all-engine throttle calibrated as well aas the separate Engine 1 throttle. You should really only use one or the other. If you want two separate axes for the same job, assign them the same way, or make the two ways specific to different profiles.

Also, most of those calibration values appear to be default values, except oddly the one extreme of the elevator. You need to consider following the calibration steps and leaving small dead zones at either ends.

To see if the fuel switches are using some odd control which may conflict, enable both Event logging options (two checkmarks) in the Logging tab, then try the switches, and see what it reported in the Log.

Regards

Pete
