NEWS! - Aircraft Update : Boeing 747-200 Classic v1.03 by Felis



NEWS_ - Felis B742 v1.03 update News Header.jpg


Felis has again done another significant update to the extraordinary Boeing 747-200 Classic for the X-Plane Simulator. Released back on August 2021, the B742 has become a certified favorite with simulator users, and not without fair comment. X-PlaneReviews MEGA release review is here: Aircraft Review : Boeing 747-200 Classic by Felis Planes


This version update focuses on changing the JD GHD (Ground Handling Deluxe) in removing the plugin from the system, but in still available from the plugin menu (shame as it was a good idea, but probably went against copyright?) and a new GPU to replace the removed unit has been added. The Libradio has been updated as has brake cooling which is now active and importantly the ILS LOC signals have been converted from dots to ddm.


Notable is to explain DDM (Depth of Modulation) as it is currently a focus in making poor ILS (Instrument Landing Systems) alignment better, and as X-Plane developers are currently converting aircraft from dots to ddm;


The difference in the depth of modulation or DDM is used by instrument landing systems in conjunction with the associated airborne receiving equipment to define a position in airspace. DDM is usually expressed in percentage but may also be expressed in microamperes. Instrument landing system ground stations provide radio frequency signals that vary linearly in the depth of modulation from the centre or course line at a rate of 0.145% per meter[citation needed]. The two individual audio modulation frequencies and their associated sidebands are 150Hz and 90Hz. (Wikipedia)
