Cannot find all info in the 4.37 dash1
Half a year ago, I rediscovered Falcon BMS after a very long absence and am reading up on the 4.36 manuals and trying out the training missions. The 4.36 manual is a great help to me to find out what all the buttons do, what options there are and how they look like. I enjoy reading it and open it up often just to reread and find out something new.
After upgrading to the version 4.37, I see that the dash1 manual has a very different format. It has many interesting things to read about, for example the fuel and electrical system parts. But I miss the general description and explanation of each button and option. For example, the 4.36 manual taught me how to fly on time using the CRUS page. There is nothing about this function in the 4.37. I could also lookup the function of any button, for example what the MSL knob does on the AUDIO 1 panel. This is also missing from the 4.37 manual.
As I am just getting into Falcon BMS again, the 4.36 manual has helped me quite a lot. The new version of the manual does not explain certain things to me as good as the previous version. Is this because the dash1 is not supposed to contain the information it did? Or is the 4.37 version not complete yet? Or is there or will there be a manual which will explains all buttons and functions like the 4.36 version did?
Hi @Wolfpack !
Thanks for you message. Your mentioned points need to be clarified/discussed.
The latest Dash-1 is new since 4.37.0. The old Dash-1 (till 4.36.3) is outdated and wasn’t possible to use for us anymore.
The orginal purpose of a dash-1 document was not given in the old version. It had mixed up the training manual, navbook, dash-34 and more. It didnt had any clear guideline.
Your example shows it: " For example, the 4.36 manual taught me how to fly on time using the CRUS page". This information is not for an dash-1 manual which explains aircraft systems. This is for the dash-34. And indeed, info about CRUS page is missing still.
Overall, most UFC content is missing. This is something we fix right now hopefully for U2.
Hi @Micro_440th ,
Thanks for your extensive answer. This makes the purpose of the different documents much more clear to me. Thanks a lot to you and the team for the wonderful simulation and great documentation!
