PFC yoke and control console

Recommended Posts

 

I have had FSX since the very beginning and am researching the possibilities of trying to install P3D4 also.

I have a 465 GB SSD drive with FSX installed on it and have 186 GB of free space on the drive. Can I install P3D4, which doesn't require very much of this space, on this drive as a separate entry?  Is it also possible to use the scenery, installed in FSX, in P3D by writing a shortcut in P3D to reference it or would I just have to copy it all into P3D?

I am getting a little old and slow and would appreciate any thoughts as to how I should proceed.  Thanks in advance.

Tom

Hello Tom,

Yes the PFC Yoke and console can be used in P3Dv4.  I am currently using a PFC USB yoke and rudder pedals, and a serial throttle quadrant.  I have everything configured via Pete Dowson's "PFC DLL 2.41" (This program is an FS2000/FS2002/FS2004/FSX/P3D driver and the 4.40 driver for FSX for the COM-port connected equipment produced by PFC (Precision Flight Controls Inc.) It handles the Throttle Quadrant Console, Cirrus II, Professional Flight Console, and the Jetliner, with options such as Pedals, Avionics Stack and the Remote Instrument Controller (RIC).

Tom,

I am using a PFC Cirrus yoke and the PFC throttle console in P3Dv4. They work great. I have them set up and calibrated directly with P3Dv4. You can install P3Dv4 on the same drive as FSX. It will install 30GB on the drive and add an additional 10GB to the "C" drive. As far as your scenery goes you can add it t P3Dv4 using the new xml method or simply point your P3Dv4 scenery library to your scenery in FSX. I would caution you about copying the scenery into P3Dv4. Please see this thread. 

I think you will find that some work and some do not. Hope this helps.

Greg
