Re: Project FMC simplified for Project Airbus

Why avionics don't fire up with Battery master switch on? Thanks Because otherwise, you would not even think about switching the RMP on. Because avionics -> ATC. Or I could force mute the audio channels without the RMP. Maybe in a later version. I think it'ok as it is. In future you might connect A...

Re: Project FMC simplified for Project Airbus

I'm using A321 CFM. However it's strange as both A320 and A321 take arrival elevation from the same Fsx source. So what works for A320 it should work for A321 as well. And if I load A321, then I load A320 on the runway, and after I load back A321 (keeping the same plan).. it works.

I did this test now.
I created a plan and then launched A321 1.58: elevetion was 0. After on the same runway i changed to A320 v1.55 and the arrival elevation was magically ok (1100ft). So how do you interpret this?

Please note, A320 is v1.55 and NOT 1.57
