    problems with engine start, flight director and whazz up 248

    Hello,

    i informed Enrico more then 2 weeks ago, no answer until now.

    I use Version 480.

    engint start -> N2 rising, 25% N2 fuel on -> N1 rising normally, EGT rising to about 100° and nearly freezing there -> N2 reaches 55°, starter off. -> Now EGT is rising from about 100° to normal value

    Is it possible to fix it by myself ? Maybe via EGTStartupDelay= ... entry ?

    --------

    Flightdirector : manual flying ILS, FD on, approach mode armed and LOG/GS captured. I was inattentive and had now a deviation from LOC. The deviation was visibe on PFD LOC indicator, also in ND CDI. But the FD maintaind centered. There was no FD command to get back to the LOC

    --------

    Anybody having the same problems?

    Yes - Version 480 is full of bugs, looks like not too much tested before its release.
    I have reverted to earlier version.

    Also PM support generally does not answer any emails
    Really bad habit since many competitors have entered the scene.

    EGTstartUp value - test to change it, might help and does not hurt anything.
    As I remember, engine #2 in PM has a much longer delay.
    However hey should differ since not two engines are the same IRL.

    I totaly agree with you! Since PM changed there focus to the professional market, it is not anymore then it was in the past (2-3 years ago)!
    Have a look here: http://www.flightdecksolutions.com/view_page.php?id=79
    I am in a planing stage of building a new sim. If PM will not have any more activities in the next two month, I do not see any other possibility for me then to switch to simavionics.
