The developers at Rotate have been rather quiet lately, but have broken that silence with new previews for their MD-11 FMS system. Developer Kucoman said that 30 individual pages are on the roadmap for development, and many of them are already operative. Below are some new previews of them in action.
What’s interesting to note is that each of the MCDUs can be independently controlled. This is because of the developers focus on a “dual-cockpit approach”. Rotate also added that the autopilot is awaiting on tuning and also work on the performance-related pages along with the aerodynamics and navigation.
Kuoman said in the post “As can be seen in the images, MCDUs can be independently connected to onside/offside FMCs, or together to the STBY NAV/RAD mode. Both primary and secondary flight plans are available, as well as alternative destination flight plan and the possibility to enter custom user waypoints.”
No further information was shared, nor any indication on a release date. We’ll continue to keep you updated should anything else come to light. You can also check our previous previews of the cockpit here.
Thanks to Cameron in our Discord for the heads up.
