1  Delco Carousel IV-A INS For Microsoft Flight Simulator / Delco Carousel IV-A INS For Microsoft Flight Simulator / AINS-70

Hi, I was curious if you'd at all be interested in developing the AINS-70, one of if not the first RNAV systems ever put into commercial service. It used traditional inertial systems like the Carousel from what I can gather, but had a CDU more reminiscent of a modern FMC, capable of SIDs and STARs among other things. I don't think I've ever seen anyone tackle it because it was a rare system only ever mounted in DC-10s, but the documentation is out there and I might have access to at least some of it. I think it was newer than the carousel, but only by a matter of a couple years at best, as it entered service as early as 1973 to my knowledge.

Yes it is included.
Try changing:
gauge08=../../civa/Ins!BatParallel,         400, 267, 57, 71
into
gauge08=../civa/civa64!BatParallel,         400, 267, 57, 71

Hi,
I just installed the latest version (1.6) and tried to make a triple INS
panel for the CS L-1011.
All went well,except for the ins bat parallel switch.
It never shows up.
My question:is this switch gauge included in the package?
my ins panel section:

[Window03]
size_mm=561,338
background_color=16,16,16
window_pos=0.300, 0.070
position=0
visible=0
ident=11040
no_luminous=1
gauge00=../civa/civa64!Msu1,             0,   0,   187,  71
gauge01=../civa/civa64!Msu2,             187,   0, 187,  71
gauge02=../civa/civa64!Msu3,             374,   0, 187,  71
gauge03=../civa/civa64!Cdu1,              0,   71, 187, 196
gauge04=../civa/civa64!Cdu2,             187,  71, 187, 196
gauge05=../civa/civa64!Cdu3,             374,  71, 187, 196
gauge06=../civa/civa64!NavModeTriple,       0, 267, 46, 71
gauge07=../civa/civa64!UpdateFlags,       275, 267, 99,  71
gauge08=../../civa/Ins!BatParallel,         400, 267, 57, 71

In case anyone is wondering, it seems to work fine with the RFP panel and HJG’s 727 panels in FS9. No issues

Not sure what the ‘important updates’ are as it seems to perform identical but either way, it works well.


I have the old version working wonderfully in my RFP747 v2. Is the .cfg file going to be the same or will I need to rework my cfg file as well if I upgrade to the new version?

And hello to all! I hope everyone is well and healthy. It has been many moons since my last login.



I only changed the folders but kept the CFG file the same.
I personally wouldn't bother though. I dont see any difference at all. I think its more to be compatible with P3D or something like that.

6  Delco Carousel IV-A INS For Microsoft Flight Simulator / Delco Carousel IV-A INS For Microsoft Flight Simulator / Strange INS behavior after departure

Hello,

I installed a triple unit CIVA INS setup in the RFP 747 for FS9 but quickly ran into a problem.

Recently I made a flight from VHHH to RJBB.
I succesfully setup the aircraft, letting the INS units heat up a bit before starting the alignment process. All three units were maximum aligned to the position of the aircraft.

For departure I used a VOR/DME based SID to the first waypoint which was called RASSE.
So I flew the SID and then activated the INS to fly to RASSE waypoint,
but when I did it the aircraft broke away from the track that I was flying to intercept the first waypoint.
It made a right turn as if it was returning to the airport first, flew that for 10 minutes or so, before making a left turn again and intercepting the waypoint at completely the wrong track.


Again, all units were fully aligned and RASSE waypoint was in the INS at the WPT 01 slot with the correct coordinates. I did not mess around with WPT 00, as this is was the POS position.

I actually drew the flight path on the chart to see what happened, and it seems like it was intercepting RASSE waypoint on a track that was calculated if you were to draw a line directly from the airport (VHHH) to RASSE.

I tried both version 1.51 and 1.60x32. And on all flights I made I get exactly the same problem.

Is this a classic case of pilot error, or a bug in the CIVA INS?

I also am having problems installing it. The manual is written for programmers and developers, not the masses that do not understand. The FSX version came with sample panels which was great because then you could just copy and paste into the CFG like installing a repaint. All I get are grey or black boxes when I try to install the INS into Concorde. All I can figure is that there is a number value or some entry that needs to be specific to get it to show up but the manual does not specify. The manual is no help.
