Title: Abort button
Post by: airforce on December 22, 2008, 03:26:35 PM
When I press the Abort button the LES lifts me up then disconnects me but my drogue parachute or my main parachute wont open and i crash into Earth. Any help?

I believe there are some automatic systems missing in the abort code; you probably need to manually enable pyros and ELS to get the parachutes to work.

Yes, if you start an abort on the pad, you need to switch both

MN BUS TIE BAT A/C - on (up)
MN BUS TIE BAT B/C - on (up)

in case you start the abort before T-75s and in any case you need to jettison the tower manually after the LES burn is complete:

TWR JETT (both) - on (up)

and power up the ELS:

ELS LOGIC - on (up)
