News No. 1.

Virtual flight engineer has been implemented - he will handle fine tuning of the autopilot controlls.

Normal work of the autopilot is characterized by fluctuations of arrows "K", "T", on the (IN-4) trim indicator of the automatic flight control system near to their neutral positions.

In case arrows "T" or "K" are near their limits, 7137511m.jpg the flight engineer at the command of the first pilot should tune them to neutral positions using pitch and bank channels' centering handles on the (AP-34B) autopilot control panel.

 

7137518m.jpg

 

Fine tuning of the autopilot in game had to be done using key commands or mouse manually, also by shuting down and turning on the autopilot that distracted user from the piloting process, because in game he was only one to controll everything. And in real life fine tuning of the autopilot handles the other crew members not engaged in piloting.

Now in game we have an additional option - the autopilot's auto-tune. Activation of "AUTOPILOT ADJUSTMENT" options enables automatic fine tuning of indexes on the (IN-4) trim indicator bringing them to neutral positions, without any user input.

We implemented a specific command which can be assigned to keyboard or joystick. Command activated by player starts the process of (IN-4) trim indicator indexes fine tuning from any positions they been at the moment untill indexes become centered.

Thus, the Mi-8MTV2 helicopter aircrew commander shell not distracted from his direct duties and pay a maximum attention to flight itself.

Very nice!

 

How does this change the handling of the Yaw channel trim?

 

When the autopilots yaw channel maxes out, it starts to trim the center point of the anti-torque pedals. If you do not reset the trim, the autopilot can trim the anti-torque pedals so much you lose yaw authority.

 

Will this behavior be changed?

Practice makes perfect.

News No.2.

SARPP-12 system (System of Automatic Registration of Flight Data) now has animated panel. (System itself is NOT modeled)

 

7137971m.jpg

 

7131827m.jpg

 

 

Designation.

System of Automatic Registration of Flight Data SARPP-12 enables registration and storage of flight data in normal and emergency flight conditions.

SARPP-12 is turned on by putting switch to "РУЧН" position. Alternatively with switch being in "АВТ" position SARPP-12 turns on only having pressure in main or auxiliary hydraulic systems, or upon activation of one of ajar switches located on shock struts of main gear after helicopter gets in the air.

The function of magnetic tape transport mechanism can be checked by presence of blinking green annunciator "САРПП РАБОТАЕТ" which together with "САРПП-12" switch is located on a left side panel in cockpit.

System to be powered on manually before engines start and powered off also manually after complete engines stop.

In simulator (game) only animation of SARPP-12 is implemented. No data registration or recording is present. :)

Looking forward to it!

 

one thing I would love to see (since we have centering rudders in our physical cockpits) is an option to cancel rudder trim without cancelling cyclic trim. This would allow us to reset the rudder without messing with the cyclic on those occasions where the autopilot engages pedals to maintain heading.
