A-29 Super Tucano

FYT is FlY To, so when you edit it you're editing and selecting the navigation point.

Editing a WP only changes the coordinates in plane database. It doesn't select it as a dastination.

 

When you change the FYT on the WPT menu, it also changes the FYT on the main menu.

 

Thanks for clearing that up .. I try to learn the aircraft in as much detail as possible 🙂

 

I loved the new bindings:

My HOTAS is programmed like a keyboard, that's why I use that column. It's unfortunate that many of the HOTAS bindings have no default keys, so I had to devise my own ... that makes it harder to share my HOTAS profile with people that have the same Hotas:

But anyway, thanks again for a great update .. I will now keep working on the training missions 👍

Here is a livery package for the A-29B Super Tucano. The textures have been revised by the Tucano FSX. The zip in the texture folder contains Roughmet for Pilot and a29b_01. A paint template is includ

A-29B Super Tucano Changelog Version 0.1.8b - 04 April 2021 - Happy Easter Added SRS Integration capability. COM 1 and COM 2 UFCP menus. COM 1, COM 2, COM 3 volume

I don't see any notice or comments about the New A-29 Super Tucano mod which is in open beta. Check it out and give it a fly then provide some feedback on github. Will be good for some CSAR support. C

Is the airbrake mapping broken again in 1.8b? 

 

The AI taking off works great.. Did a formation take off with an AI flight lead from Nellis AFB (my formation training location) and had a close call... Thought it was because of the adjustments to the FM and my lack of familiarity with the throttle response time... Until the second close call, when I notice that the airbrake was not deployed...  Checked my mappings and there all there...

 

I really like how this bird is going! The A29 team is doing a fantastic job! Very appreciated!!!

If you're with ventral pylon free and airbrake is not working, try binding it again.

Hello,

 

Can anyone tell me what does the DTOS sight mode option does?

CCIP Baro works if the selected FYT has the same altitude of the target. In that case, it can be more precise than CCIP R.

There is a CCIP Delayed mode that is being implemented.

 

DTOS does nothing at the moment. It's used for HUD target designation using FPM or a cursor controlled by TDC Slew.

 

All similar to the F-16

Luiz, por algum motivo não estou conseguindo transportar para o segundo monitor as portas dos displays, como conseguia na versão anterior.  Quando volto para a versão 0.1.7, os displays voltam a aparecer no segundo monitor. Eu não sou especialista em programação mas vi que voce mexeu nos scripts do cockpit CMFD (creio que sejam os displays, certo?) comparando arquivos da versão 0.1.8 com a versão 0.1.7.

Voce poderia ver o que está impedindo de transportar os displays ports para o segundo monitor?

Hello,

 

The CCIP seems much improved on today's version of this aircraft, now I'm able to hit the targets with much more precision:

Here is a video of the Training mission that I'm editing (based on one I did for the Skyhawk a while ago), that shows the CCIP use:

Hello. NVG implementation is great, congratulations!

 

Is it necessary to delete the previous files, before installing the latest version?

 

 

Greetings

Since there were a lot of new keybindings, I deleted the /Saved games/DCS/Config/Input/A-29B/ folder before updating the Mod, in order to avoid key bindings conflicts.

Thanks a lot. It seemed like common sense, but I preferred to consult.

I have tried the navigation training mission twice and both times I could not make a new waypoint 7.  The waypoints would go to 6 and not beyond.  Is this me or the mission?

Okay so DTOS actually means Dive Toss. It's performed mainly by High Performance jets like F-16, F-18 o F-15, it is used to throw away the bomb as far as it is possible to evade or to prevent entering in the engagment zone of a threat, so basically in the A-29 is not so used for combat because of the performance of the aircraft but it's still trained.

So how's it been used in A-29 symbology: So first when active DTOS you have a TD Box that you have to designate with the weapon realease button WRB on the target, then you have like a CCRP symbology only that you are in a Dive and when it starts flashing you will push the WRB and you will make a high G's pull up with military power and when the bomb goes off the aircraft will do an off or it can go up to evade the threat. With this manuever the bomb will go off in a high parable reaching the target very far away.

 

If you need more help or doubts just tell me.

Greetings!

Hi,

 

The mission was working the last time I tested it:

 

 

However, the above test was made using version 1.7b ... I will fly it again today on the new version 1.8b and then will report back here.

Best regards,

 

Eduardo

I am attaching V2 of my Helios profile for this plane. 

  • all buttons, etc that are shown on picture 1 are fully clickable except for some items that the developers have not yet provided key commands for.  I have included them just for show.
  • In using Helios, I used the simpler method of using keyboard emulation rather than the more complex coding of each button, etc.
  • Some of the toggle switches proved to be difficult to implement so I changed them to buttons and that worked fine.
  • You will notice a MAP button next to button 28 on the right MFD.  This button when pressed, will produce a static kneeboard that is separate from the regular kneeboard.
  • Picture 2 is the main page of the Map button and lists the various theater maps available.
  • Picture 3 (IN THE NEXT POST) is an example using one of the map buttons and lists the airfields for which a diagram is available. 
  • This kneeboard was developed by Cap Zeen for the  Helios profiles that he develops but can be used by any Helios profile.
