Setting up FSUIPC to replicate engine start ?

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I'm looking for some help with fsuipc and helicopter engine start. My collective has a push button start .I want to  hold the start button and have the N1 gauge slowly move to its max.

At the present when I push the start botton, the N1 gauge goes straight to max. Heres a video showing what I am trying to replicate if its at all possible https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3KVA3GXiK2s

I have tried various engine start options in fsuipc  to see if I can create something close but no luck

My cockpit is a full scale MD500e and the last part I'm working on is the engine start

 

Cheers

Rhys

Hi,

Which helicopter add-on are you using as a base for your implementation? I own the Milviz MD500 and in that product the start procedure is exactly implemented according to the video.

Hi Reinhard

I'm using the old nemeth bros MD500E 

Can you tell me if the milvez 530 has a 2d instrument panel.

Hi Rhys,

The MD530F from Milviz only has a VC. But defining views with dedicated cockpit cameras (showing only the interior) is a very simple task. So if you have a separated outside view (what I assume that you have, as you are building a small cockpit), then you can arrange your camera views on your cockpit monitor(s). I am Using a Samsung ultra-wide 32:9 screen for the outside view and below two touch screens for the cockpit view (pilot/copilot) beside some GoFlight hardware.

Here you find the manual: https://milviz.com/Online_products/Manuals/MV_MD530F_rev.pdf

Hi

Thanks for the reply. Because I am building a full scale sim my setup requires a 2d panel which I have setup hence the engine start is the final part part of  the project 

Cheers
