DH89. EGGP to EGCB Fuel Problem

Post by simondix » 06 Mar 2011, 16:32

I have twice tried to fly the above flight. I have loaded first time 56 kg then second time 72 kg. The client has accepted this but when flying I run out of fuel after about two minutes.

Hi Simon,

Is this just with FSAirlines or does it happen offline as well?

Rgds,

Colin

Hi Simon..

Not sure what's going on with AERN. It has 56kg FOB from your last flight in Sep.. plenty to get you to Barton *-) Has your system changed since last Sep?? TBH.. I've absolutely no idea why it's running out of fuel :dunno: Can you check with the fuel gauge to make sure it's taken fuel. I'm off back to Norwich in a min or so and have to pull my finger out or I'll run into 'work' time.

Nice hammer Colin ;)

My Grandad thought so too mate! :thumbsup:

Simon,

Have just loaded 56kgs in Dave G's FSX Rapide and it does the flight you're trying to do fine offline. Guess it's the client :dunno:

Very Odd. As you may know I have multiple FS9 setups. Only my DH89v2 was affected in my Silverwings set up. I flew the flight using the DH89 v1. No problem. Yes the V2 was the same offline. I then tried the next flight EGCB to EGNM. Same problem. Took the DH89v2 config out of my Goldenwings, no change. Flew the flight in my Goldenwings set up in the V2. No problem.

Thanks for your replies
Simon

:-O :-O

Come again?? :lol: Wish I could offer some advice mate but I've no idea how the client handles multiple installs. It should see only the active but I couldn't be sure. Certainly, it's not the v2 Rapide.. this is the only one I use and have ever used. An odd one and no mistakin'! *-)

I presume it is the client. I ave flown the Rapide with this set up all the time. See what happens next time.

Right. Tried again in my Silverwings set up and same problem occurred. However in the older Rapide download it did work. I am going to paste the cfgs here and see if anybody can see a problem. The first one is my cfg that does not work. It does in Goldenwings.

Hi Simon..

I'm not sure what's going down with the first cfg you posted. Look again at this line and you'll see what I mean..

[General]
performance=Length: 82 feet\nWing span: 115ft\nWeight: max, 54,983lbs\nPower: Bristol Centaurus\nDetails: 34\/seater freight combi\n
editable=1
category=airplane

Length 82ft?
Wingspan 115ft??
Max weight 54,983lbs???
Power Bristol Centaurus????
Details: 34seather freight combi?????

It goes without saying that none of the above equates to the Rapide :lol: Below is the correct cfg for the v2 model..
