    Hej Peter,

    The speed brakes are deployed with the “Spoilers” key command in Prepar3D. The default assignment is the apostrophe key (‘).
    The button on the throttle is not animated and cannot be operated with the mouse, you need to use the keyboard or map the command to a button on your controller.

    Hello Zig,
    I think that you are referring to the altitude setting panel (FHIS) which is not included in 35J. When you pulled the knob the FHIS panel showed “PLANE” and the horizontal crossbar would (theoretically) indicate glide path to the base. According to one of the Draken pilots that I talked to, this function was practically never used. The panel was removed in the 35J modification.

    Hello Eric, sorry for the late reply.

    The 4.1 manual was removed from the download page as most functions in Draken 5.0 are more or less identical to the FSX version.

    The online version of the 4.1 manual is still available here:
    https://www.bookmark.se/bmfs/docs/xml/index.html

    The PDF version can be downloaded here:

    Hello Peter, welcome to the forum! Please use English in the forum as most of our users do not understand Swedish. :)

    To operate the rotational switches for radar mode and weapon selection, place the cursor over the switch and use the mouse wheel to rotate the switch. You cannot change the position of these switches by clicking on them in this version. This is intentional and not a bug, but we will probably bring back the possibility to click-select in the next update.

    Sorry, I cannot help you without more information. What version of FSX are you using? Which Windows OS version? What kind of joystick/throttle do you have? Do you have FSUIPC installed? Any other third-party addons? Etc.

    Draken is self-contained and does not utilize FSUIPC or any other third-party software to communicate with FSX, so there should not be any conflict unless the Concorde-X installs something that changes the default behaviour of FSX. Try checking the install log (if there is one) and see what was installed with Concorde-X.

    The cannon effect is triggered by the FSX APU START command. Have you assigned a key or key combination to this command?

    Also, you say this happens “from start to engine off”. You should not be able to use the effect when the landing gear is down, so something is wrong here. Are you using any other third-party fx?

    Hi Dave,

    First of all, what do you mean by “revised models”? I am curious.

    I am sure we can work something out as long as I understand what it is that you wish to do, and what you have achieved so far. Maybe it would be better if you contact me directly via email (you can use the contact form).

    Cheers /Tom

    The buffer tanks should of course be replenished when you level out and fuel flows normally again. I somehow forgot that part when I wrote the function… Takes some programming to solve, but I will fix it and upload a patch with an upgraded fuel system as soon as possible.

    Thanks for your input!

    Hi Stormilm, good to see some activity in the forum again. ;)

    Flameout may occur if you fly inverted. I quote the Flight Manual:

    Flying inverted or with negative G:s is restricted to max 15 seconds to prevent fuel flow problems. The buffer fuel tanks aid in keeping the fuel flow uninterrupted, but after prolonged inverted flight you may experience flameout.

    The model regards bank angles exceeding 100 degrees as inverted flight, so this may be the cause of your problems. You should be able to fly inverted for a while before the buffer tanks are dry though. If you flameout immediately, maybe the buffers are already empty. Check the fuel levels in FSX, the buffers are Center 3.

    Cheers /Tom

    No it is not. But I need more information to be able to solve your problem. Did you follow procedures for startup and take off? Any warning lights? What FSX version are you using? Etc.

    OK, I have located the problem, which was a small logical error in the TANKPUMP warning light function. I have fixed it and will issue a patch later today.

    If the alternator goes offline with the engine running, ELFEL should be lit but TANKPUMP will only be lit if the drop tanks are empty or if the external fuel valve is closed. With external fuel available, the fuel pressure will be high enough without the pump and there will be no warning. If the engine is NOT running, there is of course no fuel pressure and so TANKPUMP should be lit regardless. I had overlooked that part in the code.

    Thank you for your help! /Tom

    Hi Peter,

    You also need to create some traffic for the AI Draken. The FSX SDK contains all the tools and documentation you need to create traffic files, although the SDK is sometimes not the easiest read. There are some good third-party tools and tutorials out there, try googling “create fsx traffic”.

    Good luck!

    @conny: I have the same problem, which is very odd as it has not always been like that.

    @Henric
    : If I understand you right, all six warning lights on the lower left are lit with the engine off, including TANKPUMP?

    I will check this out, there has to be a bug somewhere that I overlooked. It happens. ;)

    in reply to: TacPack installed – Draken drop tanks not usable #1298
    Thomas
    Keymaster

    I am unable to help you as I do not have TacPack, and the current version of Draken is neither prepared for nor tested with TacPack. My guess is that TP overrides the fuel tank selector through SimConnect to be able to implement in-air refueling, etc. I would have to go through the TacPack SDK first to figure this out.

    There will eventually be support for TacPack in Draken but I have been up to my neck in work so this is still on the “waiting list”.

    Actually, you can make FSX continue in the background.
