Help - Canopy open on Phantom FG Mk 1(ECM) ?

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know to open the canopy on the Phantom FG Mk 1(ECM).

 

I tried the following in the fuselage section, but it doesn't work.

 

SystemName[020]=Canopy

 

[Canopy]

SystemType=HIGHLIFT_DEVICE

CLiftdc=0.00

DeltaStallAlpha=0.00

AreaRatio=0.00

DeploymentMethod=AUTOMATIC_SPEED

Setting[1].Angle=30.0

Setting[1].DeployValue=0.0

Setting[1].RetractValue=10.0

MaxDeflection=30.0

MinDeflection=0.0

ControlRate=1.0

AnimationID=3

For the F-4 variants I have in WOV and WOE I use the following...

 

[Canopy]

SystemType=HIGHLIFT_DEVICE

DeploymentMethod=AUTOMATIC_SPEED

Setting[1].Angle=30.0

Setting[1].DeployValue=15.0

Setting[1].RetractValue=10.0

MaxDeflection=30.0

MinDeflection=0.0

ControlRate=2.0

AnimationID=3

 

Please let me know if this works for the FG Mk 1(ECM). Thanks.

 

Regards, comrpnt.

No, still doesn't open, unfortunately.

DeltaStallAlpha=0.00

AreaRatio=0.00

DeploymentMethod=MANUAL

Setting[1].Angle=30.0

Setting[1].DeployValue=0.0

Setting[1].RetractValue=10.0

MaxDeflection=30.0

MinDeflection=0.0

ControlRate=1.0

AnimationID=7

I tried this method on the RAF F-4M and it works perfectly.

 

So it seems it's only the FGMk1 doesn't have this modeled.

Anybody?

 

As I said don't try to set it up as a highlift device. Use the manually-activated animation feature.

IIRC, the model itself isnt set up for an opening canopy, hence nothing working.

I can't think of a reason why the canopy animation would have been removed. Its based on TK's F-4 that was leaked.
