For me, the 4x smoother controls do make a difference.   It is fiddly to set up though (it's not on by default, as it depends on your controller IDs.  You need to determine your controller IDs, then set it up manually in the Q400s INI file.  It's fiddly but a one-off thing, and worth it.   There are YouTube videos on setting it up.

I do really wish there was an easy to use utility to set this up.  I’ve done it before, but it takes a lot of trial and error and i frequently run into the axis not responding as i expect them to based on the instructions/tutorials.

Last time i did it i finally got it working after a few hours.  Next time i went to fly the Q400 I had unplugged and re plugged my joystick and suddenly all of the controls had reset (i think the joystick ID had changed)...i came close to throwing the joystick across the room.  I decided to switch back to basic inputs instead.

i’ll have to punish myself and try again tonight though 😀

I can't understand why the Majestic Q400 at Just Flight does not cost 19.99 euros?

At Just Flight - Current owners of the PRO edition can buy the new 64-bit P3D v4 PRO edition for £19.99 / €24.95 / $29.99 (including VAT).

Agreed.  They are charging me VAT even though I'm in the US.  Cost should be around $17.50 US but JF wants $21.99 US for the PILOT edition.

They answered on Facebook page:

"Just Flight All our prices include VAT and currency processing (we are UK/£ based). NB that all our prices include Just Rewards."

Has it always been that way?  I don’t remember ever paying more for an addon at JF compared to the cost at other stores.  I’m in Canada there should be no reason for me to pay VAT.

Sounds like you need a new merchant.  Why should you pay the VAT???

Did find what seems to be one bug - on one flight, the FMC's Data (options) page was showing "Ground use only" next to the NWS Pins - and would not let me remove them.    This despite me being on the ground, and in a state that normally lets me remove them.   Unsurprisingly, this resulted in a Gear Up failure after take-off and I had to continue the flight with the gear down.

In addition to the aircraft being on the ground, the main entrance door must be open to remove the gear pins.

I feel sorry for anybody that was confused about an informative post about a P3D release in a dedicated P3D forum.  I think it is sad that the same people consistently feel the need to jump all over fellow members if they don't agree where a topic is posted or have a difference of opinion just in an effort to make them look stupid.  It has nothing to do with the nature of the topic.  It is just a pathetic attempt to feel superior.  It really is pathetic.  Maybe it is self esteem issues.

I haven't signed in in over 2 years. Forgot password. Re did it all just to "like" this. Can't stand forum bullies. They are everywhere but in your face in real life. Thanks:)

I had a few hours to myself earlier and set this bad boy up in P3D.  Enabled the 125hz controls (Pro version only), quick flight from EGPD TO EGNT....oh yes it’s good to be back!

Hello, I have the PRO edition and am using the Dash with Chaseplane. Whenever I go to the exterior view and back to the cockpit, the sound volume goes way down and, eventually, go back up again. I also seem to be having sound problems when using wingviews from the outside. Sometimes the sound is completely muted for a while!

I have multiple addons installed, including FSLABS and PMDG, and did not have any sound issues until now.

Anyone experiecing something similar?

Thanks

Yes, that was solved and that's one of the items I was testing in my video earlier in this thread ... but it was last minute DLL maybe it didn't make it into final release to store build?

As a work around, you can just click anywhere on the screen to restore sound.

Cheers, Rob.

Do you use ChasePlane by any chance?  If so, there is a sligtl issue with Chaseplane and the Dash.  We tested a new DLL for the Dash last night that resolved this issue, and it should be available on the Majestic Website soon.
