Today, I was doing a flight from CAN-LAX. As I pushed back and was getting the engines running, I was doing a spoiler test. At some point, I must have accidentally clicked the Autopilot. So, upon takeoff, I reached my rotation speed, but the plane never went up. I abort takeoff using brake the whole way so I didn’t go off the runway. I then tried to takeoff again, the same thing and another aborted takeoff. That is went I found out about the AP being on. But, besides the fact, after both aborted takeoffs, I let the plane be for 2 minutes for “hot brakes” for realism. But, what if it was actually a thing.
As we all SHOULD know, you’re not just supposed to land with brakes on as hot brakes will occur (unless with a Cessna 172 or others in that ballpark). So for realism, I was thinking what if you needed to abort takeoff or use more brakes than allowed during landing, we have an alert or an object at the bottom were yoke and stuff is to show to brake heat.
Alerts can be:
- Hot brake warning
- Hot breaks are occurring
- Brakes overheated (please wait 3-4 minutes or whatever time is needed)*
*This could be scaled down from the hour needed just to be realistic. For example 1 hour realisticly=10 minutes IF
Why would this help?
Realism is key for infinite flight! This is what staff usually want to see, mainly in expert.
Other things that must be incorporated
- ATC command/announcement
- An option in settings for casual server/training (Must be on in expert to realism)
So, is there anything that you guys would want to see or think would be better for this to happen? Please tell me and vote if interested!
