Hi Howard, It's good to hear from you. There are a couple of things that come to mind.
First we should confirm you are using the release version (v01-06-08)...and it does sound like you are
. I just say this because, a pitot heat switch was added only lately, and it was in fact disabled
The new switch is next to the parking brake on the lower panel, labeled “PITOT” (#12). Regrettably this addition caused a label error - which will be fixed in an update. The Cabin Heat (#1) pull levers (Lft&Rght) have been mislabeled “PITOT HEAT” as well. They are supposed to read “CABIN HEAT”. This small error is actually pretty dangerous when I think about. Tooltips are correct - so you can confirm a switch’s function using these.
Your GoFilght toggle should trigger the 3D switch and pitot system. I can test an approximation using FSX’s keyboard shortcut Shift+H. This appears to work on my system. Could you test this? You be able to make the 3D switch move using your goFlight toggle.
Aircraft.cfg has an entry for pitot heat; this must be set to 1 to have pitot heat available. If you are using the config I provided there should be no issue. However if you’d like to confirm this is the section to look for bellow.
- Code: Select all
pitot_heat = 1.0 //typical
