  1. Are you sure you’re not mixing up the front boogie wheels with the nose wheel? The front wheels in the main gears brakes don’t work unless the nose gear suspension is depressed. It’s never too late to give up
  2. There are brake-regulators and a modulator that see that the wheels don’t lock, perhaps not ABS but nevertheless a “anti lock system” @RagnarDa I’ll check that out :) It’s never too late to give up
  3. Wheel brakes and symmetric braking No, it’s the brakes, I did some more testing, just speeding up on the runway and braking. The issue is when I brake too hard, the wheels lock and it comes fast to a unrecoverable skid. And it’s very easy to apply too much pressure, the difference between low pressure braking to locking the wheels is very fine. And that’s probably why I had that weird skid when I was low speed as I began pressing more on the brakes (and they locked). As they lock, the brakes does not brake evenly and the aircraft yaws and start to skid. So the main issue seem to be that the wheels lock while braking. And what I’ve read is that they shouldn’t lock at all on the Viggen? It’s never too late to give up
  4. I assigned the symmetric wheel brake to my right pedal. It is better and it it brakes symmetric if I apply low to moderate brake pressure but something happens when the aircraft is about to stop, then it start to yaw left or right and trying to steer makes it skid. Applying hard brakes seem to speed up the yaw and skid. So, low to moderate brake pressure and it brakes symmetrical down to, I would guess 100kmph, and then it start to steer away by its own, not a very high steer but enough so that I have to try to steer it straight and then it starts to skid. But why would it start to steer when the speed is low? Could the rudder have too much authority at low speeds? It’s never too late to give up
  5. Thanks, it’s some work left before it’s really finished, adjustment of the AB zones and the buttons need some tuning. Started to work on it over 3 years ago but have no plans other than ever finish it :) The CK-37 Datapanel is slowly coming together: It’s never too late to give up
  6. I’ve haven’t read that you should pull aft stick while braking, only when using thrust reverser, more thrust = more stick aft. It says that you should brake with even pressure and steer with the rudder pedals and only use asymmetrical braking if that isn’t enough. (My issue is that I always seem to brake asymmetrical due to the reason about the small physical range on my pedals I described above) But if guys start to skid using keyboard there must be something wrong? Different values on left/right brakes? Or why would they skid? It’s never too late to give up
  7. Wheel brakes and symmetric braking It’s not double assigned and the dead zone does not do the trick here. I’ve done some testing and the issue is that the physical travel on the brake pedals are short so even if the difference between the pedals are very small, the difference in values in the sim get large and I end up having one brake brake harder than the other even if I think I brake them evenly. And when I try to adjust I press just a little harder on one pedal but that gives a high change in the sim and the aircraft steers hard. Maybe its time to see if I can change the spring in the brake pedals so it takes a lot more effort to move them? It’s never too late to give up
  8. I don’t know if this is just me but I have a really hard time using the wheel brakes symmetric. As soon as I start applying brakes the aircraft starts to steer left or right and I try to compensate by either lift or press one one brake pedal and it ends by me flapping and flopping the brakes and steering the nose wheel left and right to try not to skid. And of course I skid... I using the Saitek combat rudder pedals and there aren’t much feedback in the brake pedals so it’s probably easy to brake asymmetrical and therefore start steering left or right. Is it possible to make the brakes brake symmetric if My brake pedals are in let’s say within 5% or degrees from each other? Regards F It’s never too late to give up
  9. Big thank you RagnarDa for doing these sessions!! It’s so easy to point out “errors” but it’s even easier to forget how much work it can take to find and fix or create functions. (I won’t stop nagging about stuff I think needs fixes though ;) ) Again, big thank you for your work! Regards F It’s never too late to give up
  10. ** AJS-37 Changelog / Update Master List ** Its probably really close to the truth, the charts show a max at 13000m ISA -15 close to Mach 2.0. And when they tested for these charts they didn’t run it out of fuel :) Perhaps one should try to see the top speed when you have 20% fuel left or something. It’s never too late to give up
  11. The problem is that it’s not modeled correctly. Blue zone: outside envelope, above 18aoa probably. Red zone: AB zone3 will flameout, AB won’t ignite and re-ignite. AB zone 1-2 don’t work Yellow zone: AB zone3 works but AB will not ignite/re-ignite. AB zone 1-2 don’t work Green zone: AB zone 1-3 work It’s never too late to give up
  12. Afterburner flameout question No it should not. It shouldn’t flameout at high altitude if you fly fast and you should be able to re-ignite. There are some limits for igniting the afterburner and the different AB zones but the limit that is modeled now is not correct. http:// https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=254364 It’s never too late to give up
  13. +1 on this, My Megas are marked wrong too,didn’t remember that one. It’s never too late to give up
  14. DCS-BIOS: Strange behaviour over RS485 Network You haven’t set 2 panels with the same id number in any sketch by mistake? Or check that you don’t have any strange delay() in the sketch for some reason? It’s never too late to give up
  15. I was in for about 5mins, looked like some advanced QR-code, hard to read for a novice like me though. It’s never too late to give up
  16. Sorry for the very late answer but a HUGE thanks for this!!! Works great! Very handy for me as I now can test my panels with my laptop and control the sim-computer with Remote Desktop. Regards F It’s never too late to give up
  17. http:// CK37 Datapanel is my next panel to complete. It’s never too late to give up
  18. Almost as funny as looking at a sundial in the shade for 1hr ;) It’s never too late to give up
  19. I assigned it on friday, no issues. It’s never too late to give up
  20. Why is the afterburner flaming out at high altitude and high speed? Max AB, M1.6 and not touching the throttle. I haven’t seen any documents supporting this so I’m a bit curious. The limits I’ve seen says that @14.5km and M0.5 there is a limit keeping the max Zone3 lit. And @14.5km you need to go faster than M1.2 to ignite the AB/ use zone 1-2. So I would be ok if I were in zone 2 below M1.2 and climbing towards 14km and the AB flames out but not if I’m in zone3. The charts show up to 16km as you were not supposed to go higher than that so the function limits is a bit of guessing after that. But I see no reason for a max zone 3 climb to 16k if you’re going faster than M0.9 to flameout the AB. And not only flames out, it literally dies, can’t get it to reignite even at low altitude. Regards F
  21. There is only one detent, it’s between ground idle and flight idle. But the video I posted above show two detents. This video below show my setup doing a cold start where I go from cut off, engine start, some ground/flight idle play and then a take off:
  22. This is what I’ve meant, there are two detents, I move the throttle between MTG and FTG but there are two “clicks” Regards F
  23. Thanks for answering, that’s a bit much for this poor brain :) , I’ll just have to go back and install a button after all. Again big thanks for your answer, saved me a lot of time troubleshooting something that wouldn’t work the way I approached it!! Regards F
  24. Ok, it’s not the actual range I’m after, I’ll make a video this afternoon, it’s easier to understand what I mean then. Regards
  25. Ok, is it possible to read the physical Throttle position ie the windows value? The issue I’m having is that the “raw gauge value” of the throttle show the animated throttle position, so even if I put my physical throttle all the way back I won’t get a lower value than 3276 as the cut off animation waits for a input. If I advance my throttle, the next value is 6553, as the animation simulates a detent there, so I can’t read any value between 3276 and 6553. So, is it possible to read the physical throttle position values? Regards F
