VOR indicators in "Create a Flight"

Postby GlaStar1 » Fri Mar 16, 2007 4:10 pm

Dear Simmers,
I am unable to enable the VOR indicators when in the "Create  a Flight" mode.  I have tuned the NAV receivers  to the NDB freq and no response by the indicators.
They work in Machado's tutorials but not in the "Create a Flight" mode.  What must I do?

You mean you can't create a "VOR-to-VOR" flight plan? Or you can't receive the frequencies when in your plane? Be clearer, please. :-?

To be clearer:  I'm flying toward an airport; the airport depiction implies and ndb exists. I tune nav receivers to the frequency published for that airport's ndb, I set the OBS to point in the direction of the NDB, I move into the glide path for the airport's landing strip and I get no movement or other indications on my VOR indicators.  I'm clearly failing to do something I should.  What could it be?

You expect to have indication of a NDB into the VOR instruments and fail? No wonder. 8-)

VORs and NDBs are fundamentally different and are read on different instruments. You can't read the NDB on the VOR instrumentation, and the way around is true also.

On the picture below you have a indication of where to expect, on the default Cessna 172, to read which.

The two instruments display only that information, and do not cross reference. The VOR instrument doubles as ILS GLIDE and LOC indicator and nothing else. The autopilot too is unable to lock on a NDB, but only can follow a VOR radial.

This is the way things are. :)

Ashaman,

You have misidentified the ADF in your panel picture.

Ashaman,

You have misidentified the ADF in your panel picture.  It is not the instrument you have an arrow from NDB pointing at.  The ADF is the instrument to the right of the VOR indicator on your panel picture.



Correct you are. :-[

Great scatological figure I did. :-[ :-[

Yoda like I speak because of that. :-[ :-[ :-[

Correct picture this is:

Please old picture disregard, that for correctness delete I won't, because an error is an error. ;D

Only excuse I can put forward was that it was done on the run. ::)


Ashaman with his head covered with ashes. :-[

The visual indicators are controlled by the Autoflight panel > Modes> Cessna172SP VOR Indicators switch. That switch must be ON to enable the indicators. wordle
