Okay WTF am I doing wrong here?

So I get this beast started, I get the flight plan uploaded and everything is working fine.

 

I take off and all the sudden the pitch ladder on my HUD starts acting wonky. Says I'm in a banked turn when I am not. Says I am climbing when I am not.

 

TAD has the flight plan on it Waypoints and whatnot but I get no steering cues on the HUD. Also, I get no flight path marker on the HUD, which is frustrating cause I use that all the time LOL. Really strange I think. There must be a switch somewhere I am not throwing.

 

Any ideas?

 

Oh and Hi! My first post and all!

I've sped up my startup time by initiating the INS alignment before engine start. Basically, as soon as the APU is started I turn on the APU gen, L/R AC gens, as well as the EGI and CDU power. This starts the INS alignment right away. I wait until after the engines are running and the APU is turned off to turn on the CICU and IFFCC and start the bit test.

 

I've seen procedures wrt the EGI/CDU power before and after engine start so I don't know which is correct or realistic. I've never had any problems doing it the way I described and it shaves off a ton of time on ramp startups without sacrificing INS alignment.

Thanks! I'll try that.:thumbup:

Start up EGI - (do everything else while it's aligning) - When it hits 4.0.0.8 (INS ready flashes) press - Nav (RLSK3) on CDU align page - select EGI on NMSP - flick two switches on EAC panel to on ... you are now ready to go-go :D

Before the last patch you needed to wait for electrical power from the left generator. Now u can use apu generator to start systems. You want to save more time do an in-flight align and taxi while your starting second engine. Ground power is now only necessary for repair or going to chill as it keeps systems online when powering down the engines :)

UG! No joy on the TVV / FPM INS is aligned but for some reason the EAC will not arm. I try to arm it but it just goes back to standby.

Listed in notes for 1.1.0.8 Patch

- HARS navigation is defaulting to active at ramp start. With the HARS mode active, you will not get any FPM/VVI in the HUD, and you will not be able to arm the EAC. If you switch from HARS mode to EGI mode after complete INS Alignment, then the FPM/VVI returns, and you can arm the EAC.

 

I think this might be the prob ??

Yeah well just goes to show you shouldn't fly while drunk. Or ask for advice. :joystick:

 

Any way it all worked out.

Both is "acceptable". Asking questions and flying when drunk. Sometimes it slows things down ... flying when drunk that is :P

 

Geeeeee that is a nice SAM smoke. *BANG* Where the hell is my countermeasures! Oh wait .. all there is left is the cockpit
