Hello!

I wanted to use the Surface Launch Program from IMFD for my launch timing today. I have loaded the XR2 Scn "1 - Ready for takeoff to ISS".
But the Surface Launch Program does not show any data from the Course Program.
What I did:

Left IMFD: MNU -> Course -> Target Intercept -> Target: ISS -> TEj: 0

Right IMFD: MNU -> OpMode: 0 -> Surface Launch

So the course data should be used by the right IMFD for the Surface Launch Program, right?

IMFD has some kind of a "share" function.
You need to "share" the left MFD to the right MFD in your case.
So launch-data can be "Injected" via "MFD-share-function".

The "share" function is somewhere on the main-page of IMFD.
So you need to set "share 0" on the right MFD. So right MFD "queries" left MFD.

But however, I am pretty sure, that there are even much more complicated was to go to the ISS.
Why not using the simple efficient way ?
You could use Launch-MFD and on top...if using the XR-crafts...use scramMFD to perform a semi-auto SCRAM ascent.
Just disable the pitch program (PTC button) in Launch-MFD and let scramMFD handle the pitch.
While launch-MFD still manages the heading.

The rest is standard stuff...just watch your APA and do the circulation burn at apoapsis (i.e. BurnMFD is quit helpfull for this last task).

Hello Turtle,

yes, that's what I meant by "OpMode:0", I share the date from left (0) with right. But there is no data available.
Sure, I know there is another way to launch to ISS, that was something like my minimal example. It should work here too if I want to use it elsewhere, shouldn't it?
Launch MFD is another question ;-)
