Magnetic declination <0 bug?

Hi Michael,

I live in the east part of Belgium., with a compass declination of 0deg 47min. the websites gives me degrees so to convert to radians, 47/60 times pi/180 = 0.01367 radians (correct?)

when I try to put that number into flightplanner, compass_dec, (write params),(refresh params), it returns 136,000 and that cant be right. MP1.2.97 build 1.1.5167.24804 ’

thanks, Wilfred


if you enter into the raw param list you need to enter radians.

but if you enter using the normal interface, you enter in degrees and minutes.

please give that a shot.
