    MCP Course Set - Offsets

    Hi,

    Can anyone tell me what the PM MCP Left & Right Course Setting (Read) Offsets
    are please.

    I can't seem to find them in the list.

    Thanks

    Rick

    That's because PM doesn't provide those. They are the FS OBS values for VOR1
    and VOR2. Check the FSUIPC offsets list -- there's one on the same PM
    page.

    MCP Course Set - Offsets

    Pete,

    Thanks for the help.

    Would I be right in saying then that PM MCP just interfaces with the FS OBS
    values and displays/sets them, and that there is no actual programming
    functionality in the PM MCP other than intercept parameters.

    Just curious !

    Rick

    Until Enrico gets his "Beta A/P" fully working, there's probably nothing the
    MCP will do with the course settings. The CDI (Course Deviation Indicator),
    and the guidance for VOR/LOC modes, are, I think, currently left to FS to
    calculate, GC to display. But Enrico will really be the only one who can
    say whether it is used.

    Regards,

    Pete
