After two days of building the cockpit, the SWL-36-MAX is finally ready. It has rudder pedals, throttles, and a whole lot more. There are oil temperature gauges, and a navigation panel. On the overhead panel, you will find the speedbrake controls, a light, and a huge picture of a plane. In real life, the screen will show the status of all the controls.
I would have just made a link to the original SWL-36 for instructions, but there are so many new ones, and the original controls are so changed, so I'm just going to write new instructions.
1 + Throttle up | Engine number one
2 + Throttle up | Engine number two
3 | Landing lights
4 | Brakes, reverse thrust, and speedbrakes
8 | Instrument dial lights
Pitch and Roll | Center sticks
Yaw | Pedals
Trim | Landing gear doors
Landing gear | Landing gear
VTOL up | Flaps
Put trim up when you start. Place throttle at 3%, then activate 1 and 2. VTOL to half a notch up. Activate 3. When you are ready to take off, full power. at about 200 mph, rotate. When the plane is climbing, pull gear up (trim down, gear up, when wheels up, trim up). Cruising is 10,000 ft at 90% throttle.
When you want to land, start descent to 7,000 ft. Now you go to 80% throttle. At 5,000 ft, flaps to halfway down. Throttle to 70%. When at 2,000 ft, gear down. Activate 3, for landing lights, and 4, for brakes. Full flaps around here too. Slowly pull the throttles back on touchdown, and full brakes.
