Hydraulics System Video

 

A new systems video for you.  If you have a special interest in the 737CL systems you can find schematics of the systems HERE

For those of you who are familiar with the 737 overhead panel, you will notice that the switches are reversed.  This is the configuration of Lufthansa which believe this is more intuitive.  (if you want something you crab it towards you)

This video only cover parts of what we model.  We also simulate;

- LGTU

- PTU

- Autoslat

- Automatic activation of standby system

- Manual gear extension

- Manual reversion

- Manual gear drop with 0G-load

Pluss a bunch of other details....

    Hi Flo,

    Yes, we have a custom view control which makes it very easy and fast to navigate
    around the 3D cockpit. It is also fully customizable by the user so you can set
    it up just as you like. More details on that will come.

    Very impressive work. This plane is so much wanted!
    Seeing the video the third time I startet to wonder how the view control is managed. Is it a special plugin? Looks neither like default nor like TIR. I`m asking because view control is still giving me headaches in busy IFR situations.

    Hi John Paul,

    This is a common misconception by many. Lufthansa has reversed switches because
    they believe it is more intuitive to grab something towards you when you want it,
    not oposite. We will most likely do the the other configuration as well so no worries.

    Is it me or are the switches backwards. The switches should be "on" when in the forward (towards the windscreen) possession. From the video they are the other way around. I assume its because its still in beta, but it might be easier to resolve the issue now and avoid photoshop time later. Other than that, I hope your plugin will have hardware support. I would love to use it with my full size early 737-300 cockpit. Keep up the great work.

    Cheers!

    Looking excellent! Can't wait to fly this one. Which models of the 737CL do you guys plan to simulate? -300 and -500? I know you are working on getting this bird finished up, but I'm curious... are there plans to model winglets? Keep up the great work!
