vPilot / A2A P28A / RXP GNS530 - only COM2 works

Recommended Posts

Gents, I'm pretty sure I've overlooked something, as in my P28A I can only transmit on vPilot if I select COM2 radio as the active.


COM1, controlled by the GNS530, does not work no matter what I select or de-select on the radio panel. vPilot says something in red about no frequency is tuned. COM2 works a charm.


I'm running vPilot networked on a laptop and I have no issues wlth all the PMDG aircraft or CS L-1011.


Any tips would be greatly appreciated

is this a shortcoming in the RXP which I didn't notice because SB uses WideFS/FSUIPC and not SimConnect?


No, SimConnect and FSUIPC are just two different ways of reading/writing the same variables. vPilot requires that the COM radio has sufficient power applied to it and the radio status must be "active", and I don't think SB has those requirements. So that may be the problem. The RXP may not be setting the status and/or power variables properly.


If you're willing to do a little testing, I can send you a test version of vPilot that does not require the radio to have power or be active in order to read the frequency.

I found a thread over at A2A: http://a2asimulations.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=116&t=40947


Seems to be a glitch in the P28A radio stack, and the gauge, when turning off and on the GNS gauge it works, I'll try it out.


Either that, or a fuse popped, like what happened to this fella: http://www.a2asimulations.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=41830#p314832
