Yep, you're right. I missed the upgrade code. It's in a different location than the PRO version.

Plinio,

Not just you.  I too am receiving the 1KB zip file instead of the Q400 Pro. 

Cheers,

Frank

Thank you guys for your messages...I though I was the only one with the problem.. 

It is already to late for me, 23:00 In Rio de Janeiro.... Hopefully I will be able to fly it tomorrow...

 

Cheers

Has anyone ordered from this title from PCaviator.com in the US? Any issues?

Unfortunately the coupon code they sent me doesn't work.

I've emailed them and hope to hear back on a solution.

Annoying because I have been waiting a long time for this upgrade.

Will let you know what transpires.

PC Aviator I think had a typo in the coupon code they sent out via automatic email.   I only know this because it didn't work for me either but when i used the one they sent me when i emailed info@pcaviator.com that one worked.  Instead of an 8 they accidently put in a B.  lol

This solve the issue for me. Replace the B of your coupon code for an 8 and problem solved.

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.

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.

We've not tested it with P3Dv4 ourselves yet but no reason it shouldn't work, no one has moaned at us!

Chris what does it improve? 

I use a HOTAS WARTOG I find it amazing to use with all aircraft. 

Will that make any difference to the controls?

Well Im the wrong guy to ask that as I never tried the non-125hz option with this bird, but I have no issues with my Saitek x65 after proper Majestic control calibration, smooth as silk in controller response.
