KO-50 kerosene powered defroster is designed to heat up the air supplied to helicopter compartments.

KO-50 controls are located at the pilots’ right electric board.

The TV-1 thermometer designated for control of air temperature in passengers’ compartment is located at the right dash board.

It’s recommended to turn on the KO-50 in “heating mode” having OAT/FAT below +10°C while engines running on the ground or using ground electric power, in flight at any time for except autorotation mode.

 

There are no limitations running KO-50 in “ventilation” mode.

 

1. Start up and usage of defroster in automatic temperature adjustment mode.

To start defroster in mentioned mode it is needed to:

1. Turn on DC power.

2. Turn on "KO-50" switch.

3. Set temperature selector to +30°С.

4. Set mode selector switch to "автомат"(auto) position.

5. Press and hold for 2–3 seconds the "запуск"(start) button.

 

Fuel preheater starts to function, a yellow annunciator panel “ПОДОГРЕВ ТОПЛИВА”(fuel preheating) lights up. When fuel temperature reaches 70 ±50°С (preheating time 35 ±15 seconds) fuel preheater turns off automatically, yellow annunciator panel “ПОДОГРЕВ ТОПЛИВА” goes dark. Simultaneously with fuel preheater shut down heater ignition and electric fan systems gets turned on. To annunciator panels lights up: yellow – “ЗАЖИГАНИЕ”(ignition), green – “ОБОГРЕВАТЕЛЬ РАБОТАЕТ НОРМАЛЬНО”(defroster functions normally). The annunciator panel “ЗАЖИГАНИЕ”(ignition) should go dark not later than after 2 minutes counting from "запуск"(start) button gets pressed. Defrosted is to be considered functioning when yellow annunciator panel “ЗАЖИГАНИЕ”(ignition) goes dark and green annunciator panel “ОБОГРЕВАТЕЛЬ РАБОТАЕТ НОРМАЛЬНО”(defroster functions normally) stays lit. After defroster start required temperature for helicopter compartments to be set using temperature selector switch.

 

2. Start up and usage of defroster in manual temperature adjustment mode.

Set “ЗАЛИВКА –ПОЛНЫЙ РЕЖИМ –СРЕДНИЙ РЕЖИМ”(priming – maximum mode – half mode) mode selector switch to “ПОЛНЫЙ РЕЖИМ”(maximum mode) position (having OAT/FAT lower than -13°С) or “СРЕДНИЙ РЕЖИМ”(half mode) (-13°С to +15°С).

 

To start defroster in mentioned mode it is needed to:

1. Turn on DC power.

2. Turn on "KO-50" switch.

3. Set temperature selector to any position.

4. Select “ПОЛНЫЙ РЕЖИМ –СРЕДНИЙ РЕЖИМ”(maximum mode - half mode) mode using switch located on a right dash board.

5. Set mode selector switch to "ручной"(manual) position.

6. Press and hold for 2–3 seconds the "запуск"(start) button.

 

Further equipment functioning it similar to start up in automatic mode.

Defroster function in ventilation mode.

When using defroster for cabin ventilation in summer time turn on KO-50 switch and “ВЕНТИЛ.”(fan) switch to on position.

 

Turning off KO-50 defroster.

To turn off defroster set mode selector switch to neutral position. Green annunciator panel “ОБОГРЕВАТЕЛЬ РАБОТАЕТ НОРМАЛЬНО”(defroster functions normally) goes dark. But fan still stays on. Air supplied by fan eliminates fuel from combustion chamber, cools down calorifier. Fan gets turned off by automatic temperature sensor when temperature of air coming from defroster drops below +50°C.

 

I wish You all to have a nice and warm flight in winter conditions! :)

Will these newly added switch animations also affect the UV map of texture?

It shouldn't effect UV maps as they are adding animations not editing the maps. ie adding a dummy connectors to the switch to animate.

 

P.S. awesome news on the Mi-8 getting some love.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

News about Mi-8MTV2.

In this topic I will announce the implemented changes and additions to the Mi-8MTV2 Magnificent Eight.

 

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.

 

7104751m.jpg

 

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.

 

7105762m.jpg

 

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.

 

7080162m.jpg

 

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

 

Video as the the flight engineer at the command of the first pilot adjusts to neutral positions using pitch and bank channels' centering handles on the (AP-34B) autopilot control panel on take-off.

«П-503Б» cockpit voice recorder is designed for registration of information and special signals coming from radios' output channels or intercom on wire medium.

Voice recorder control is carried out from commander's pannel located on a left hand side electric console.

 

Voice recorder should be turned on before engines' start, turned off - after helicopter landing and complete engines' shut down.
