Hello everybody, this is my fisrt post in this forum,
at first: jeehell is a great job! many thanks to the developer.

I completed most of my home cockpit conversion
towards jeehell and I'm very satisfied (opencockipi MCDU, Cp FLight FCU, Arduino driven hardware etcc.)!

I have two problems that I can not solve and I ask for help (FMGS B50.2 and p3d v4).

The first one is for the Landing Gear lever:
i have assigned the command to retract / extend the Landing gear
and the Landing gear effectively retract and extend accordly to the lever position. the problem is
during the interval of time that is necessary to the Landing gaer in order to complete the retraction/extension:
i'am expecting to see the SD switched to WHEEL page in both case showing the retraction/extension phase,
but it does not happen. what am I doing wrong?

The second problem is more difficult to explain:
the route planned in the ND is simply "strange" and the Aircraft attempt to follow the "strange" route, causing
FCU disconnecting.
in the attached image i draw an example (i'am at work now and i can't make a screenshot from my HomeCockpit)

all the navigation data from navigraph (latest Airac) are installed in the main pc and in the client pc,
can someone point me in the right direction for solving the problem?

thank you in avdance.
Sorry for my bad english

Welcome Claudio!

The systems in JH really go by the book to a great extent, so if you suspect something doesn't work the way you expect, please confirm it first with an actual pilot manual or a video of the actual plane. Sometimes there are minor differences based on different versions of the systems or customizations enabled for customers (airlines) which are not reflected in JH, but in most cases JH is right and as you can see (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVDDJVP2k5g&feature=youtu.be&t=925), the WHEEL page doesn't seem to appear while the landing gear is being deployed.


the route planned in the ND is simply "strange" and the Aircraft attempt to follow the "strange" route, causing
FCU disconnecting.
While there are occasionally some problems with the displayed route on the ND, in most cases the plane flies correctly as programmed on the MCDU. I've personally never seen the AP going off because of a broken route, so maybe you've found a bug. Get the exact route, navdata version, plane load, etc and when that happens for JL to replicate and fix it.

That's probably because you're new to the forum and some of the content (maybe links?) you added are considered spam. Maybe if you send just the text and then either try to edit to add the rest or add them as broken links in another post it will work. Eventually someone should accept the messages but I don't know how much that would take.

There are some route drawing issues in some circumstances. Next release will address a good number of those issues hoepfully.
Just need to wait a bit...
