QPAC Update : Airbus A320-232 update to v2.0.1 beta 4




QPAC has updated the A320-232 to v2.1 but to note it is still in a beta stage (final to follow). QPAC update notes are as follows:


There are some changes affecting aircraft operation, which you may need to get used to coming from the previous versions:

- Flap/slat speed limit (VFE) on PFD now depends only on lever position like in real life, not on actual surface position.  Be careful not to overspeed during flap/slat retraction!
- The speed brake lever now has 4 detents for manual extension; you'll have to select speed brake down twice for half speed brake, and four times for full speed brake. (With AP on, more than half speedbrake is not permitted.)
- The idle setting for the engines at high speed has been increased to reflect better the behaviour of the real aircraft. You will have to start your descent earlier because of this; use 30NM for 10000ft of height loss as a rule of thumb.
- All external lights have been reworked and can now be operated; for the best effect, you will need XP10 with HDR rendering turned on though.
- You can now shortcut ADIRU alignment via the MCDU MENU/QPAC Actions page; this is useful, if you don't want to wait the full 10 minutes or  need to realign in flight after an IR fault that you reset.
- There is an auto-pause function that pauses on any Master Warning or caution message. Useful, if you go away from the computer for a while. (Also available on the MCDU MENU / QPAC Actions page.
- The thrust lever detents for CL and MCT have been increased in size and are therefore not quite at the same position as before. Check the FMA to find the right position.


beta 3 updates are also noted:


New features:
- increased number of speed brake detents for finer drag control
- Adapted engine idle setting to more realistic values
- Complete rework of external lights
- New functions in MCDU MENU/QPAC: Instant ADIRU align, auto pause, option to disable the strobes lighting up the cockpit at night.


Bug fixes:


- Flight path prediction is now bug-free.
- Corrected OpenGL bug leading to random objects in view and other weird graphical effects.
- Corrected VFE behaviour to depend of SF lever position only.
- Added new interfacing routines for XFMC/UFMC interface
- Fixed the behaviour with altitude constraints in the approach.
- Tuned the Direct To behaviour
- Tuning of the downstream effects of loss of heading/attitude data on captain or copilot side.
- Improved waypoint sequencing. (Manual and automatic)
- Corrected AP mode and phase switching during touch and gos.
- Added the leading "1" in the altitude tape at altitudes just below 1000 and 10000 feet.
- Added FAF label to MCDU FPLAN page for non-precision approaches
- Increased width of the CL and MCT detents in the thrust levers to make it easier to place the levers in the correct detent.
- Tons of other small bug-fixes
