[REPORTED]Gear Status and Pitot Heating status lights extinguish


Recommended Posts

When I fly a mission of some duration I find that, in the final landing approach, the status lights for the gear (the ones labelled "Aus") and the lights indicating pitot heating status, all of which were lit during the whole flight, are extinguished without me doing anything to that effect. You can see this in the attached track. Unfortunately you have to wait till shortly before landing to see it. Looks like a bug to me.

Hi LeCuvier

 

I can see the indicators go out in your track, thank you.

 

I am at a loss to why at the moment, and I can not reproduce any other way.

 

I will speak with the dev on Monday about this.

 

thank you.

Hi LeCuvier,

i saw this yesterday too after flying the A8 after a couple weeks off.

 

Hi LeCuvier

 

I can see the indicators go out in your track, thank you.

 

I am at a loss to why at the moment, and I can not reproduce any other way.

 

I will speak with the dev on Monday about this.

 

thank you.

The easiest way to replicate this:

- do a air start

- time acceleration

- nothing else to do

- after a little less than 6min and 30sec into the mission the lights go off

 

Track showing the exact same done(including the time acceleration so you don't have to wait 6min) attached.

Pushing in all CBs, the pitot heat and landing gear light extinguishes after 4:30 to 5:30 minutes. Even if you disconnect the pitot heat CB(thus switching it off) this function stops to work after the aforementioned time. Before that time elapses you can push in the pitot cb and see that it lights up, then disconnect it again. But even switching off pitot CB, after that time the light won't go on anymore with the pitot CB pushed in.

 

But it is somehow connected to the Battery CB. If you disconnect the Battery CB after startup, the pitot heat and landinggear light extinguishes, but it won't get "damaged". So even after 10 minutes you can push the battery CB in (pitot CB can remain pushed in all the time) and the pitot light will light up.

 

 

I have the impression that the accumulated "ON" time of the Battery is causing the problem. But I have to test it more to confirm that.

No change after update of 11-27-2019

 

I tried with cold-start missions, and the Pitot Heating indicator went OFF after 5 min, and the Gear Status indicators about 30sec later.

Next I tried a free-flight mission, and it showed the same behaviour.

Duplicated on every mission I fly.

Gear Status lights fixed - Pitot heating status not

 

After today's update, the gear status lights staid on through a 15-minute mission. The pitot heating status was extinguished 5 minutes into the mission. So the pitot status light is not fixed!
