View Full Version : DF734 Panel Problem
02-14-2003, 10:13 AM
I am having a problem with ASI,EADI, Altimeter and stanby altimeter and airspeed when I am going through clouds or bad weather. The gauges do work, but in a unstable way. When the bad weather is over and not going through clouds then everything comes back to normal, the gauges operate smoothly.
Can someone tell me please whats the problem?

No problem at all.
Have you ever see a real airpseed indicator in turbulence?
Wihout actually seeing what your gauges are doing, it all sounds pretty realistic to me if you are going through bad weather.
When things get rough, many things bounce around, some gauges do not stay "rock solid" as you might think, especially the ones you mentioned.

LAST EDITED ON Feb-14-03 AT 10:04AM (EST)[p]I think this is just one of the ways FS2002 simulates turbulence. Don't know if it's anywhere near realistic, but it happens in all planes, I think.
I usually turn off turbulence in FSUIPC because I hate when it happens. I mean, why not take advantage of the fact that I'm in a simulator :-)
Edit: Ah, Lou beat me to it :-)

I know in the light aircraft I fly, the gauges bounce around quite a bit in rough air, especially the pitot-static driven gauges (obviously).
On a windy day, while landing the Archer, I will keep my airpseed so that the ASI needle is bouncing to either side (sometimes +/- 5 or more knots) of my target airspeed.
I the end, it is just a simulator, and if something that is "realistic" bothers you, turn it off. Don't let it get in the way of your enjoyment. No one grades you on just how much realism you care to fly with. :-)
