Default Hard Deck Function

So when is the Hard Deck function going to be available for the Co-Pilot II? This would be the ultimate game changer I believe in FS.

I'd get one tomorrow if it was available. That way, I could fly with Cp-II off and when I loose it I could fight it all the way down, learning all the way, knowing that CP-II will pull it out just before the expensive bit.

That's when you use these SV1-SV2-SV3 channels not only to level out the cyclic but also to punch up on the collective when the bird drops below certain preprogrammed altitude

You can't claim ignorance, I'm afraid.

So where's the hard deck, hey?

And while you're about it how about a hard flight-line, or even a flight-box?

And where's the FMA FBL unit with IR leveling? I already asked for that months ago.

"In subsequent CPII releases, we hope to support a feature termed hard deck. Imagine an aircraft, out of control, and heading towards earth. Pilot is completely at a loss to recover. Hard deck will represent a minimum altitude at which Level Flight Mode will be activated, regardless of Remote setting. ER will become mandatory to swift and un-constrained recovery of the model in this scenario which is the main reason why the feature is already available in the CPII firmware."

Nightflyer this is taken right from your CPII setup sticky so you can't claim ignorance. Will we see it 2012?????

Stickies are just like wives, they don't testify against the accused...
As to your question...."Will we see it 2012????? "
As Mr.Spock would say..... " There are always possibilities....."

Of course there are always possibilities, but what are the probabilities? We shall eagerly await.

Hey Night, doesn't your sainthood status bestowed on your first visit to F.M.A. automatically render you blameless and guilt free?

I heard a rumor that this and a GPS way point/ return to home feature may be ready for the summer of 2012. Hopefully this is true.
