Saving your checklists
When you have finished creating your checklists, click Finish on the Voice Selection panel of the Checklist Editor. You will be prompted to enter a name for your checklist. Your new checklist will now become available in the Select Aircraft panel of FDC Live Cockpit! 2011, under checklists. Your own checklists will be preceded with the text User:, to distinguish them from the standard FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 checklists.
Specifying aircraft type and configuration
Adding your aircraft to FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 is divided into four steps, each step being separated into its own panel in the Perfor- mance Editor. The various steps are described in detail below. Once you have opened the Editor, you are allowed to either add a new performance file, edit an existing file, or delete an existing file. If you choose to add a new file to FDC Live Cockpit! 2011, you can either make a new file from scratch, or you can use one of the existing files as a template.
We recommend you to open one of the default performance files of FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 to gain a better understanding of the data contained in a performance file. This also gives you a hint of what data you need to gather for your own aircraft to make your performance accurate enough!
Let us also point out that the data entered in the Performance Editor doesn’t affect the performance of the aircraft in Flight Simulator; it is solely used to synchronize the events in FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 properly to your aircraft’s performance in Flight Simulator.
Note! You can of course change the standard performance files in FDC Live Cockpit! 2011. If you have made changes to the standard files, you can reset them to their default values by clicking Restore Defaults available on the Performance File Editor panel.
