The Tu-104 is an aircraft I knew nothing about. It looks beautiful and has air of the exotic with its embedded engines. Only problem is the artificial horizon seems to be locked. I've tried every swirch I could find (and switched the engines off a few times) to try to unlock this gauge rather than using clouds to orienate myself. Anyone know how to unlock this ?

The horizons can be caged / uncaged by a button right up on the instruments. Their electrical switches are left on the main panel, the engines must be running and the electrical systems must be on.
For further information please refer to my "Brief flight manual..." published together with my tuned 104ґs at AVSIM.su and Stepanovs documentation to his original upload.

Kind regards

Walter

I have tried the switches you highlight in your picture, so presumably the electrical systems are not on. I'll have a look at the "Breif flight manual" and see if I can switch these systems on. This is a nice aircraft, pity there is no VC however, worth keeping FS9 for planes like these. Thanks Walter.

Hi:

Electric systems call window SHIFT-1 turn on the FOUR Generators and switch on the transformers bus 1 and the rectifier. All avionics switches up.

The basic handling is well explained in Stepanovs paper.
