    Please add Qi245

    Hi Kiek,

    can an you please add.





    this Qi variable is available since PSX version 10.0.6:


    Qi245="GearBits"; Mode=XECON; Min=0; Max=2147483647;


    It stores additional information related to the landing gear systems. It may be extended in the future; it currently provides the following bits:


    Bit 0001 : Nose wheel steering tiller is linked with rudder pedals.


    Bit 0002 : Autobrake selector can be latched in RTO by the solenoid.


    Bit 0004 : Autobrake selector can be latched in a landing mode by the solenoid.


    All these system status bits take malfunctions into account.






    For hardware developers who use a solenoid in the autobrakes selector box:


    Like in previous versions, you can relax your solenoid when PSX sends you an OFF or DISARM position.


    You can keep your existing code.


    You may just add this:


    When Qi245 tells you that RTO cannot be latched, and you still hold the selector in RTO with your hand, you should not send your RTO selection status to PSX. This will prevent PSX from moving its virtual selector to RTO which would cause a jump back to OFF after a short delay, and which would cause a click-click noise in your mechanics. It should not click at all because the solenoid isn't powered in this case. -- The same principle is applied to DISARM and the landing modes.






    Cheers,
