May I thank you for these great addons,however there is one change (or it may be user error) I would like to be able to implement.
If I start from a cold & dark cockpit the radios power on as soon as the avionics bus is powered,I would like to have to turn on each radio as well (glutton for punishment).The switches work to turn off each radio but this state is not saved,even when creating a flight.
Is this possible,already implemented,or am I doing somethig wrong.
Best wishes and thanks in advance

I don't believe this is at all possible. When you turn on the master avionics switch, all radios will power up.

True :) But each radio has it's own powerbutton as well, so if you want to reallt punish yourself, switch them off first before you power on the avionics bus ;)
Best regards, Elmar

I think it is possible-see the FSD 'it must be your system' Avanti.
This to me would be a 'nice to have' feature.
Well I can live it hope.

When using real world avionics you want to minimize how many times you turn them on and off with knobs or buttons on the radio itself to save wear and tear. Most of the time you just flick the avionics switch and go from there.
With FS9 nothing ever wears out so there is no incentive to try and limit wear.

That does make sense.In real life do the radios have a TX delay so that if the mike is keyed at power on they won't TX for 'x' seconds or some similar surge inhibit system?My amateur radio radio did asnd it saved me a couple of times.
If this is also the case I wonder why manufacturers go to the expense/relibility reduction of fitting them?
All my flying is in gliders and we hardly even use batteries let alone avionics.
Thanks very much for the answers and food for thoiught-they are both great aircraft-I winder which is really closest to (flight dynamics+ systems) to the real thing? but being Dreamfleet tey are both going to be VERY close (as far as FS can handle anyway)
