Ok - one more question for today - well one topic anyway - LOL... Anyone else familiar with Eric's EMB-120 with the panel by Marcus Gama ??? Man - what a combination - quality work all around...
Anyway - flying properly questions...
1) With that EEC engine control instrument - what's the proper usage ??? If set it to each phase of flight "TO" "CL" or "CR" - would normal practice just be to firewall the throttle and let the engine control adjust for proper levels ??? If not - what typical values should I employ for each phase of flight ???
2) Conditioner - what settings should I use on this lever to match prototypical values for each phase of flight ???
3) APU - when starting a turbo prop - I would assume you start the APU first - if so equipped... Once the APU generator is turned on - shouldn't it support the electrical load for the entire plane ??? I still have my battery go dead after several minutes with the APU running... Is this operator error on my part - an issue with the panel - or - a gross conceptual error ???
4) Does external power work on this panel ??? I modded this panel with ISGsim FMC - and - I need to power the panel prior to push back to get ready for the flight... Looking for a way to do this while still at the dock... You wouldn't do a main engine start until pushback - right ???
Again - great plane - great panel... Really wish whatever payware company started this project would have finished it...
