  1. AeriaGloria's post in 240 L fuel warning happens below 240 on fuel gauge was marked as the answer   
    Hello let me know if a track is needed. The low fuel warning lights in Mi-24 both turn on simultaneously at 240 L left, or 120 L left in tank 1 and same amount in tank 2. 
     
      However currently it seems to turn on around 200 L. It seems this might be Becuase of the unusable fuel capacity of 40 L being useable in DCS, which I believe happens with some other modules. It might be easier to see this happen with the fuel tank Selector in the 1 or 2 position rather then total, as the tank 1/2 scale on the gauge is easier to see small changes with. 
     
      I do not mind being able to use unusable fuel of 40 L, but I wanted to post this just in case it was desired to have the low fuel warning light actually appear at 240 L indicated. 
     
       Currently there is no problems compared to real life procedure with the exception of the fuel tank gauge being about 40 L lower then actual fuel level. I think it would be nice if either fuel tank warning happened at 240 L indicated (even though that would give you slightly more time until empty then stated in manual), or if the fuel warning was moved to 240 L as it is suppossed to be and the un-useable fuel capacity of 40 L eliminated 
      Just wanted to bring this up. If track is needed or video I can do so right away

  3. AeriaGloria's post in AC generators switch off at hover take-off at winter time. was marked as the answer   
    I can’t watch the track yet. But if you turned on anti ice, even though it doesn’t eliminate/reduce damage from icing currently, it’s power draw is functional. You will see it decrease right engine power on EPR gauge. Dust protection takes 100 HP from each engine and decreases max take off weight by 200 kg. Anti icing decreases max take off weight by 700 kg!! 
     
    In colder temperatures you can actually perform better becuase of denser air, but right now in sim we can’t use anti icing properly. So until your engine begins to die from ice or ED adds anti icing functionality in a future patch, you can use full power! Until you’re engine dies from ice Atleast. 
     
      And if we take those horse power figures and apply the same difference to max takeoff weight penalty, it’s possible the anti icing uses up to almost 16% power of the engines whereas dust protection only uses 4.5%. 
     
    So being more gentle, less takeoff weight, using rolling take offs to deal with high weight, using Differing amounts and combinations of these is your key to survival….. once the anti icing does its job. Or if you want to turn it on before it does anything to practice the final/most realistic procedure. 
     
    When anti icing is fully implemented, we’ll probably also have the icing automatic detector implemented. So you’ll only really need to turn on anti icing when you get a big red caution light and Rita both saying “ICING.” 
  4. AeriaGloria's post in Slow Rudder Joystick Twist was marked as the answer   
    This is correct, there is a rudder dampener becuase moving the pedals too fast can cause issues, such as severe Dutch roll. A pilot can push through the dampener, but even then manual says that at high speed to never push pedals from side to side in less then 3 seconds
     
    When the speed of the pedal movement is limited by the dampener, you will see a yellow caution light saying “high pedal rate” near the gyro buttons/switch/lights. 
     
    you can turn off rudder dampener though, it is a switch with a red guard on left side of instrument panel. However be aware that turning off the rudder dampener will also disable any yaw autopilot functions
