Helpful Tip Concerning Doppler Navigation

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am not new to DCS but I made a mistake repeatedly without realizing it. It took me many startups and references to the training, videos, and manual, to realize my mistake. Unsurprisingly my error was the flipping of an unnecessary switch. Armed with this knowledge I now have the power to screw up my navigation system if I want to. But to save others from this trouble I wish to share my knowledge.

 

I don't have a perfect understanding but turning on the "AIRSPD SNSR TO DOPPLER" will effectively "invert" your navigation. If I had memorized the startup training I would not have made this mistake. Here is a picture of the left wall of the pilot seat:

Yeah, it'll also render your DISS and drift to go funky as well, TAS calculations seem to be fine

 

Is it possible you have to select your heading as a course for it to interpret the results properly?

 

I'm just trying to drag anything from the Tu-154 that I can lol

So many maps are just black for zoom ins 😞

which is a shame the map zoomed in is much more useful for the map display to me.

Just off top of my head the last caucauses quick start can't zoom in; tonopah rest range airfield in Nevada can't, qeshm isle and bandar Abbas can't - does anyone know what determines if a zoom in is available?

Caucauses has always had zoom for me. PG and Cyprus have never had zoom in for me. This was observed in at least 5 missions on each map.

Did it reported as a bug already?

On many videos on YT of startup people turn it on (So up) but they didnt notice that its a bug ;D.

Try the last caucauses quick start kogori storm (however you spell). You won't have a zoomed in map either

Just to chime in on the zoomed map, half the time I just get a black map...and doesnt really matter what map Im on.

Caucasus is unreliable to me... about 1/4 the time I don't have high-detail maps. I haven't scientifically tested to see if it's always the same maps.

All the others I've tried are far spottier. Some of Nevada works. I think some of Syria, too, but can't recall now.

What do I do when I get to the edge of the map? Is there any way to "change" maps?

Keep flying and the paper map will change automatically. There is no "manual" way to change it.

That's interesting. Because that's not what happens. At least not in my case. Talking about the zoomed "out" larger scale map.
