[CameraDefinition.6] ADF for the Bird Dog ski model

Post by bmd » 15 Mar 2010, 05:33


On my computer, if I use the VC view defined in [CameraDefinition.6] named ADF of the Bird Dog ski model, I cannot put ON the ADF and I cannot change de frequency.

I have found that the reason for this behavior is related to the presence of the ashtray over the InitialXyz position of the VC vuew. When I put the mouse over the upper part of the ADF receiver in this view, I see the tooltip "ashtray". The solution is simple. I have modified the [CameraDefinition.6] in the following way

Title = "ADF"
Guid = {D8D78757-2E9B-4e85-9D87-8EFFBBFAC64A}
Description = Looking into ADF
Origin = Virtual Cockpit
SnapPbhAdjust = Swivel
SnapPbhReturn = FALSE
PanPbhAdjust = Swivel
PanPbhReturn = FALSE
Track = None
ShowAxis = FALSE
AllowZoom = TRUE
InitialZoom = 0.75
ShowWeather = Yes
InitialXyz = 0.32, -0.47, 0.61 ; Camera YZX position offset from the default
; location in meters. *** 0.38, -0.47, 0.61
InitialPbh = 60, 0, 90 ; Camera pitch, bank and heading orientation
; offset from the default in degrees. *** 90, 0, 90
XyzAdjust = TRUE
Category=Virtual Cockpit

With this new [CameraDefinition.6] I am able to put ON ADF receiver and to change its frequency using the rotating knob of the mouse.

Other tips to use to ADF receiver of the Bird Dog ski model
1/ The inner left ADF knob of the receiver adjust the fractional value of the frequency
2/ the outer left ADF knob of the receiver is use to select OFF, BFO, ANT or ADF functions
3/ the other three knobs permit to adjust the value of the frequency.

Thank SibWing for their wonderful Bird Dog models.

Have a good day
