RE: A320 Pilots - Flap And Spoiler Operation

Thanks everyone. I see it is <acronym title="Bahamasair">UP</acronym>, 1, 2, 3, FULL. But for some reason the panel we have from flightdecksolutions is labelled 0 1 2 3 4. It's also flat rather than curved to follow the lever. Im building the mechanism as a lever though, so if they get round to rele...

A320 Pilots - Flap And Spoiler Operation

Hi, Just a quick couple of questions for anyone with experience flying the A320 (or other Airbus FBW aircraft) We're making an A320 simulator, and I'm designing the flap lever and spoiler mechanism. Firstly, Flaps - Am I right in thinking that the bottom part of the lever is pulled up and then the f...

If you're using a joystick, check that the throttle is properly calibrated so you get idle thrust when you want it not 50 or 60%.

Change it yourself. Its set at a default of 15 degrees C in FS2002, I presume its the same in FS2000 but I cant remember (its soo old! LOL). 15C = 59F, and it probably displays 58 due to the small elevation from sea level.
