I wait until the nose touches down, and then I use full reversers to slow it down. Once I have slowed down to 60 knots, I start using the brakes - gently. Grin

The nose gear takes very long to come down and it has to be PUSHED now in most instances. This is definately a flaw that has to be fixed. Not even default FSX aircraft behave this way.

After installing of your L-1011 works only 1 time. If i reset for a nother flight on a different Aiport CTD. After starting again FSX got a Runtime error R6025 only on your L-1011. What kind of solution can you give me you for my problem to solve it ?

a good test pilot is always in training

I saw the DVD from AirUtopia (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Wd4xRhfRj8 )about the L1011. After landing the pilots use both hands to push the yoke forward to prevent nose up. Never saw this before, but this seems real.
But with CS I never had the problem with nose up during roll out. It flares very nice and maybe this could be a reason. For example the 747 from the other company flares also very long and need some experience. The 777 did not.

ALPHA Speed in automatic landing is too low
Reply #34 - Jul 15th, 2014 at 10:43am
Print Post  
Hello, I am not sure if it is an issue or not, but I consider the ALPHA Speed very low in automatic landings, because it goes down to 112-114 knots.

I have tryed to make a manual landing, with full flaps and same weather conditions and weights, and it is imposible to control de plane below 130knots.

Anyway I think that  heavy aircraft like 1011 cant fly at this speed.

Any suggestion will be so gratefull

It really does depend on the Gross Weight of the L-1011 the time of landing. Here is a chart showing the VREF speeds for certain gross weights  of the L-1011-1 that I found in some documentation I have downloaded:


Note that the flaps setting for landing is 33o, not 42o!

The following is taken from the 1011 Captain FLIGHT MANUAL Part II Aircraft and Systems (csl011_mnual2.pdf) regarding the Flaps:

9. Flap Lever
Controls flap and slat extension or retraction. Lever is
spring-loaded in detents at:
0 - UP.
4 - Slat positioning gate takeoff/approach.
10 - Takeoff/approach.
18 - Takeoff.
22 - Approach/go-around gate.
27 - Not used.
33 - Landing.
42 - Alternate (short field) landing.


Just so you know, I have never landed the 1011 Captain at below about 130 when using flaps 33! I did used to always land using flaps 42, but that was only until someone pointed out to me that flaps 42 is supposed to be for short field landings. Shows that I had not fully read the manual. Shocked Wink

Thank you for your reply Mark.

You can test it with full cargo load, and 50% of fuel, try to autoland (CAT3), with full flaps (42) and note that ALPHA speed goes to IAS selector, and the speed (IAS on top of screen) goes down to 112-114 knots.

The aircraft lands without any problem.

Now try to land manually with the same conditions, and you will note that the landing speed goes below 130knots is impossible, surely yo got a stall.

Thank you anyway for your interesting.

yes, the autoland behavior is much different to a manual landing and iam not shure if this behavior is close to the real thing, but 50% fuel for a landing is much to much Wink

did you check max landing weight ?

Hello Gusty, thank you for your reply.

Yes 50% of fuel is too much, for this , with more reason the landing speed of 112knots it cant be real, I think...

just to mention, a 737NG should touchdown with arround a bit over 2 tons of fuel... not shure for the 1011, but i would say it should be arround 6 tons.

Hi,

I have just purchased the Freighter expansion, but having installed it the ACE configurator still shows passengers in the Arrow Freighter option. Should it not be a pallet loading option?

Regards,
Mervyn

Press SHIFT+3 to open the Animations Panel. Below the main Cargo Door entry (left side) is the Loader - click on it to open the Loader (#1 in pic below). On the Loader Panel, click on SHOW/HIDE LOADER to make the loader visible (#2 in pic below). Open the main Cargo Door and start loading cargo into the L-1011F. Once you load a pallet/ULD onto the L-1011F, you will need to move it away from the cargo door using the mouse (#3 in pic below). Failure to do so will prevent the next pallet/ULD from being able to be loaded onto the L-1011F.

The LOADER will automatically update the aircraft Gross Weight (in the TAKEOFF WEIGHT: XXXXXX LBS (or KGS if you use that setting))- (#4 in pic below).

http://i669.photobucket.com/albums/vv58/Markoz958/2014-7-18_22-42-53-721_zps5f09...
In this pic, there is a pallet/ULD in the cargo doorway! The pallet/ULD on the Loader will not be able to be moved from the loader to the L-1011F until I have moved it further into the fuselage! Sorry about the large pic, but I need you to see exactly what I mean.

Note: You need to manually adjust the Gross Weight on Gross Wt/Total Fuel Indicator on the 2nd Officer Lower Panel (see pic below).


Notice that the Gross weight on the Loader Panel differs from the Gross Weight on the Gross Wt/Total Fuel Indicator! Adjustment of the Gross Weight is done by Right Mouse Clicking or Left Mouse Clicking on the button in the green circle!

Has anyone managed to port the L into FSX STEAM yet?

Yes. I have. And this is how I did it:

1) I copied the FSX\SimObjects\Airplanes\CS_L-1011 (and the CS_L-1011F folder) into the FSX-SE\SimObjects\Airplanes\ folder.
2) I created a Captain_Sim folder in the root FSX-SE folder.
3) I copied the FSX\Captain_Sim\1011 into the FSX-SE\Captain_Sim folder.
4) I copied the cs1011_smoke.fx and cs1011_vaportrail.fx from FSX\Effects folder to FSX-SE\Effects folder.
5) I copied all the files in the FSX\Captain_Sim\1011\flights folder to the Documents\Flight Simulator X - Steam Edition Files. You don't have to copy them all if you don't want to, but you must copy the cs1011base.PLN file or the CS INS won't function correctly.
6) To have the switch sounds, I had to create a [b]DLL.xml
file in the C:\Users\[YOUR USER NAME]\AppData\Microsoft\FSX-SE[/i] folder (enter %AppData%\Microsoft\FSX-SE in the Run Command (Windows Key+R) to open it without searching for it) and then added the following to it:

Code
Select All
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?>

<SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0">
  <Launch.Addon>
    <Name>L1011 Captain Sound</Name>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <Path>Captain_Sim\1011\cs.sound.dll</Path>
  </Launch.Addon>

</SimBase.Document> 



If the DLL.xml file exists, only add the following lines to it:

Code
Select All
  <Launch.Addon>
    <Name>L1011 Captain Sound</Name>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <Path>Captain_Sim\1011\cs.sound.dll</Path>
  </Launch.Addon> 



The only thin NOT working in FSX-SE is the engine smoke! I don't know why they don't appear, but they don't. FSX-SE seemed to have an update last night/this morning (update_queued message) but I can't tell if it really did update or not. Nothing seemed to download, and then the option to PLAY appeared. Undecided
