A380 Air Speed

Post by beroun » 02 Jul 2017, 12:16

Hi (FS2004),
got great Project Airbus A380 (Project Airbus A380-800 Emirates - United for Wildlife A6-EDG) and have obtained the panel.WH from Wilhelm Hudetz. The panel with the aircraft works great and is very realistic. But the Primary Flight Display (PFD) desired target airspeed digitalized above the PFD air speed bar does not match with the current airspeed indicated on the bar - Is usually about 30-40 knots less.
This gauge comes from Z_AB380KM_WH,CAB and is listed in the panel as gauge73=Z_AB380KM_WH!PFD,
Any idea why there is a discrepancy?
Many Thanks.
Peter

Apologies! have noted in AVSIM gauges improvement (a380wsupd01.zip), which fixes this problem and also the problem with the heading adjustment knob. All works great now.
Cheers

Hi, My response was premature there is still a vast air speed difference. Primary Flight Display (PFD) desired target airspeed digitalized above the PFD air speed bar does not match with the current airspeed indicated on the bar - Is usually about 30-40 knots less.
This gauge comes from Z_AB380KM_WH,CAB and is listed in the panel as gauge73=Z_AB380KM_WH!PFD.
I also tried A320 PFD gauge from Z_AB320KM.cab Gauge Z_AB320KM!PFD and it is the same. The speed digitalized above the PFD air speed bar is lower than indicated. Can someone tell me if this is an anomaly or maybe it is intended for this speed indication to be lower?
Thanks

Is FS9 configured to show indicted instead of true airspeed?

Hi Bjoern.
Got FS9 configured to True Airspeed. Looks like the true airspeed shows in the PFD bar but the digital display above the bar is the Indicated Airspeed.
If I configure FS9 to Indicated airspeed there is a match (in the PFD speed bar and above). But I still think that both readings should be the same, regardless which airspeed is configured.

If the value is programmed to show indicated airspeed it's all you'll get.

You shouldn't use TAS as a primary flight indication anyway.
