Re: Project FMC simplified for Project Airbus

I don't use the SIDS and STARS at all, my ATC provides that, I was trying to find another way to trigger it, radar altitude, gear down or flaps full instead of the approach phase being selected. I think that would be better as it would show for everyone if they had to turn around or divert to anothe...

It's mandatory for autoland IRL for the reasons you state. I don't think the sim distinguishes between different Cats, it seems to autoland on all of them. It should not autoland on CAT I IIRC.

I get full flare with just AP1 on, I just assumed I must have missed something when copying across. IRL you should not even get the LAND come up and I believe there would be some kind of ECAS warning while on the ILS with just one AP on.

Re: Project FMC simplified for Project Airbus

I don't think you can add waypoints without adding some other kind of FMC (I can tell you how if you have a Carenado Pro line system plane), changing active waypoints is easy, just add a popup of the default GPS into the panel.cfg and use that. It may already be there but I am not sure.

Agree, it's weird that the bigger aircraft have less flaps even if they are using the same wing. Did you see the A321 has extra slots for more lift so it would make sense to give it a higher lift number in the aircraft.cfg so it will match the figures.

The A321 has different flaps, I could only find the full flaps setting which is 25 for both CFM and IAE, it's 35 on the 18,19 and 20. I assume the other settings are correct but they are hard to find.

Re: Project FMC simplified for Project Airbus

Yes, that is how the real world airbus flap logic works, you can do a a search for those terms and see how pilots say the plane doesn't slow down too much on slats until it gets to F2 and they need 1+F on retraction or too much lift would be lost at once.
