Default 18 MZ Switch Position Warning

Hi Bax,

On my 18MZ I run 5 flight conditions. Normal and four others. Normal and two other conditions are on a three position switch and the other two conditions are set using the logic function and another two position switch. Condition four is three position switch in position 2 and two position switch in position 2 and condition 5 is three position switch in position 3 and two position switch in position 2.

The problem relates to condition warnings. If the three position switch is in any other position than 1 you get a condition warning on startup, but if it is in position 1 even if the two position switch is in position 2 you don't get a warning because "Normal" condition overrides condition 4 and 5. However if you take off in "Normal" but with switch two in position two and then flip the three position switch to position 2 or 3 you get the wrong condition because of switch two!

Is it possible to add a startup warning that indicates two position switch in position 2 without affecting its action in the logic sequence for condition selection?

Thanks

Malcolm
