Gentlemen,

Presenting the very first Trislander beta and is still considered a work in progress. I've included models with setups for the freeware GNS/GTX, freeware Bendix radios and of course the Aspen EFD1000/Flight1 GTN750 gauges. There are a few notes I'm adding to this, hopefully these can be rectified as we move along with testing:

1.) Contacts are off for gear compression. They are animated, but I can't figure out for the life of me what to adjust to make them compress realistically as in the real world bird.

2.) Weight and balance may be off as this requires some bit of trim to get the aircraft off the ground

I do have a couple of real world Trislander drivers on board testing the aircraft and I have included his notes that can help with the project.

Not all virtual cockpits are the same and have the same functions, those will be rectified as we move along with this project. You may notice a missing gauge(s), glass reflections, pilot figure in the virtual cockpit. No worries as this is a beta after all and those will be fixed as we move along. Of course if there is anything out of place that needs my attention, do let me know so they can be fixed.

Now to start the aircraft:

1.) Switch guard up, then master battery on

2.) Prop levers forward and mixtures knobs in

3.) Overhead fuel selectors as follows
a.) Left selector set to "Left"
b.) Right selector set to "Right"
c.) Rear selector set to "Both"

4.) Fuel pump switches on

5.) 6 magneto switches on

6.) Depress starter buttons to engage starters. They will disengage once engine starts

7.) Generator switches on. These are next to battery switch

8.) Avionics switch on

Of course if anyone has issues getting Joey to start, let me know and I'll help get it sorted

Do enjoy and I look forward to your feedback
