Hi,

Is there anything that can be done to prevent FSiPanel setting my Baro to HPA. I prefer IN. Maybe its something Ive done when I initially saved the aircraft type.!?

Hope you can help.

Graham,
I figured this one out for myself so want to share it with you.  In the weather section set QNH to 3002 or whatever is appropriate and it will carry that into the cockpit when it loads your flight.

Hi Jerry, 100% correct.

The QNH setting will be set depending on the METAR you have received or set.

If you depart Europe in hPA for New York, when arriving, you will have to set your Baro in local setting.

Did you set your visibility option to METERS or MILES ?

Cheers,

I think miles but . . . . . I've generally been using opus for the weather and not sending any weather via fsipanel but just using the weather that's current at that particular moment. I find Opus is better as it does things a little different than other weather engines. I find visibility looks more realistic. I'm trying to use fsipanel just for positioning and general fms setup.

To be honest J-P I'd rather it left things like baro setting hpa/in to whatever has been set in the cockpit by me if that could be made an option.

Ok guys, if you're using another software for the weather, you have the following risk:

FSiPanel knows when positionning your aircraft what QNH is set in FSX, therefore all the altitudes computations are based on this QNH.

If you don't set any weather with FSiPanel but have another WX software putting for example 3005 as QNH, the aircraft will not be at the right MSL altitude... Be aware this could be a problem if your QNH in not standard 29.92

I will change the code so that if your visibility is in Miles, the baro setting will be mercury unless you import a Metar with QNH in hPA.

Cheers,

J-P,

You've mis-understood us. We're putting in the correct figure. I'd like my display to remain in Inches of mercury and not changed to Hectopascals which is what fsipanel keeps doing.

Roger copied that. Will be changed on next update.
Vis in miles = mercury, Vis in meters = HPa.

Now let's say you fly in Geneva, import the metar and the QNH is 1024, you agree that in that case FSiPanel must set your display in hPa? As in real life.

I agree J-P.
Thanks for your improvements to fsipanel.  Can't wait to see the Q400 released.  :)
