  1. Quick question about the fuel ladder. Where does the 1200 lbs per 15 mins come from? I understand it's based on max endurance speed but at what altitude and what drag index? Is it based on a basic drag index or actual load out?
  2. Great documents! I've been searching for an explanation of the fuel ladder and it's impossible to find on google! Thank you!
  3. No, I haven't. That one and the bingo knob are my nemesis(es/ie?). I have asked Razbam for the title of the bingo knob coding but they havent had time to look that up yet. I believe the altimeter knob is the same type of coding as the bingo knob , a "default axis cycle ". And as I understand it you have to code those as "Icommand-title-incr/decr". But without knowing the title you wont be able to code it. I could be wrong though.
  4. Yes, they did issue a "combat aircraft fundementals" manual in 2016, not seen an updated version since. It's missing a few bits and as far as I could tell didn't have a clear layout of the training sorties planned for a B course. The other option is just following the IQT campaign that's available. My problem is that I love seeing the real stuff and creating my own missions based on that.
  5. Thanks, I'll have a look at the RWR volume. I have made it an axis command (listed above) and I'll check the volume issue.
  6. Thanks, I have been told these bindings will be implemented with the next update after 2.7.
  7. One thing I forgot to mention is that I also amended the coding in the COMMS section for the RCS panel. The original LUA has the OP MODE of the RCS coding miss-spelled with the word MODE as MOD. The numbers for the positions are also incorrect. It's coded with some arbitrary intervals but it should be 20 degree intervals to assign rotary switches. So these 6 lines should be replaced: {down = radio_commands.Switch_OP_MOD, cockpit_device_id = devices.RSC, value_down = 0.05, name = _('UHF RCU-8150 Operational Mode: OFF'), category = _('Radios Control')},
  8. If it's the normal COMM 1 & 2 volume controls try adding these 2 lines to the joystick default.lua file in the AXIS section (right at the bottom): {action = ufc_commands.Knob_Comm1_Vol, cockpit_device_id = devices.UFCCONTROL, name = _('COMM1 VOL')}, {action = ufc_commands.Knob_Comm2_Vol, cockpit_device_id = devices.UFCCONTROL, name = _('COMM2 VOL')},
  9. Do you mean the normal COMMS 1 & 2 volume controls on the UFC or the comms volume on the RCS?
  10. Hi guys, Just wondering, does anybody have a syllabus guide for the A-10 B course? ie, something that lays out all the training missions? I'm NOT asking for any classified stuff or tactics, merely a list of what gets covered on the training flights during conversion onto the jet. There is a real world document available for the AV8B training syllabus with very detailed information about ALL the simulator sessions, all the real training flights and a big section with tips and tricks how to operate the jet. This is in addition to all the NATOPS manuals. Needless to say
  11. Hi guys, Is there any fuel planning software/app or excel sheet available that you know of? I have looked but didn't find any other than the one for the A10 and F18. I mainly looking for one for the AV8B but if there is one that I can modify accordingly that could be a workaround. What I'm looking for is something that will calculate how much fuel the jet will use for climb/cruise fuel use per mile (or any other method of calculating fuel use) and descent. Bingo, joker or tiger calculators would be cool too.
  12. Hi guys, For the past few weeks I have been busy coding the LUA files whilst building my VR AV8B home cockpit. I have shared these with Razbam and hopefully they will implement them at some point. In case this doesn't happen I would like to share these with you. I am not an expert coder by any means, so it may not be perfect but it works. The main additions are for the joystick lua file but add the coding to the keyboard lua file if you wish to use keyboard key combinations for a switch position (mainly OFF positions). I use RS Mapper to enable a switch to function i

  14. Can anybody confirm that this is still not working correctly? I am not getting a bunch of weird indications with the TOT/TTT function. First a slow command speed then as you get closer the command speed ramps up to really high numbers.
