...... (IDG1 & IDG2) only operate in one direction

There are two commands (on/off) for each switch, for example IDG switch1
laminar/B738/one_way_switch/drive_disconnect1 - the switch only commands this function for me.
laminar/B738/one_way_switch/drive_disconnect1_off - this does not function.

I am using SPST on/off toggle switches for these and have checked the wiring and config as best i can but cannot get the switches to function correctly.

Any suggestions please or is this an error in the Configurator?

Thanks for the great work!

Yes, this switch works "like in real plane"  (one-way).
Supposed  "IDG cannot be reconnected in the air"

If needed I will change it for two ways (in next update).

Thanks for the quick response.

It's not a big problem as it would never be used in the air but sometimes, if the sim is out of sync with my hardware when setting up on the ground, I have to use the mouse to re-align.

Change to a 2 way would be helpful but no need to prioritise.


I suspect, that these switches (and lamps)  are just "dummy"  in Zibo (as a lot of other useless switches)
Th only function that custom datarefs do is the switch animation.

I don't think you need to spend inputs ans wiring them.

Ah OK, thanks Vlad. It is one of the checklist items on the interactive checklist (xchecklist) that I use. I guess I'll just edit it out then and disable the switches.

Thanks & regards
