Re: Project FMC simplified for Project Airbus

Anyone got any idea why the master caution light comes on in the A330 during cruise? I have 100,000 lbs in the 2 wing tanks and it got down to 77,000 lbs and I get a caution light but nothing on the display. It cant be a tank running empty because I only filled up 2 wing tanks.

Re: Project FMC simplified for Project Airbus

Well, I'd have said that it was a P3D bug, but it rather seems to be one related to the FMC or autopilot. I think theres a very narrow window where the CoG is ok, maybe it could be solved of the AP when to 2000 fpm climb or descent and then adjust from there. That could be why it happens more in th...

Re: Project FMC simplified for Project Airbus

One more thing to make the cockpit more realistic. There is no GP/NAV switch in the real thing. It goes into NAV when the LOC or APP is pressed and would go back to GPS when the managed heading is set.

Maybe it could be applied to the APP button so its in NAV when lit but GPS when its unlit?
