    Ethiopia crash

    Those extreme forces were largely a consequence of letting the airspeed run away from them. If you've got full nose-down trim and you let the jet continue to accelerate almost to Vmo, yes, extreme force will be required to turn the jackscrew manually against those heavy air loads. A runaway trim resulting from the more common causes--a stuck relay, bad switches or a wiring fault, would also be expected to recur if the system were left activated. The MCAS may be a new mode of causation for runaway trim, but the corrective action and the implications for flying the aircraft are pretty much the same no matter what causes it. The implications of an out-of-trim condition as the result of a runaway for control of the aircraft (e.g. the poor airmanship of pushing the airspeed to the far limit of the flight envelope with a known flight control problem) are the same as well. Why this is so difficult for some to understand...

    GSX update on the way

    Thanks Bob, that's what I thought. So once it's released, the live updater will install it, is that correct..??

  7. Good evening, Adam! I just wanted to thank you for your work, making some great presets (in my opinion) for the PTA. I downloaded the Adam_PTA_266_02 version, from your page, and it looks and works great. Thank you very much for your effort and dedication. A greeting.

    Help with 4k TV

    I've noticed when playing certain games (Looking at you, Assasin's Creed Odyssey) that my 1080Ti heats up markedly. If I put my bare foot on the chassis next to the card, it gets uncomfortable after about 30 seconds. These cards, it seems, run hot when maxed out. If your case doesn't have a good side fan, consider installing one. Mine had a broken one that wasn't needed in my old builds, but I replaced it for this build and the GPU temps dropped by 12 degrees C under load (and the cooler it runs, the faster it runs). One of the problems with the ATX form factor is that with the longer cards, you're often forced to put the card on the bottom slot in order to clear the RAM or the CPU's heatsink, and that means you have 2 or 3 vidcard fans crammed up against the bottom of the case and losing cooling effectiveness. Even in my very large full-tower case, this is an issue. I suspect my next upgrade might require water cooling just to get around that problem. As to the 100% even at HD resolutions, who made the card, and are you running their drivers, or the stock nVidia ones?

    Help with 4k TV

    Thank for all the info. The point is that if I use a TV instead of the monitor GPU usage goes up to 100% and stay at 100% no matter what. Even if a set my PC to render 1080P 30HZ instead of 4K it still cooks the GPU

    How to Backup Settings ?

    Sent a ticket but no response.
  15. Also had a similar problem with Amazon DE. Just went to Saturn and picked up one. First impressions: a significant improvement when compared to the Rift! Text is considerably sharper. The lack of external sensors is also a huge plus.

    Ibiza X for FS9

    Hi Dillon, I understand your pain very well - Aerosoft Germany has been a FS9 hater for a long time - so that don't surprise me much. Have you tried to get the box second hand? I found some boxes searching for "Balearen X" at E-Bay Germany: Perhaps there is something simular i Florida? Good Luck... Dedl

    Century autopilot

    I have now found the Century III Manual on the manufacturer site and I can see it's not like the Cessna and will only hold on a reached altitude. Now swapped over to the Mooney Bravo which does have an autopilot like the Cessna. Thx Bob

    Ibiza X for FS9

    Looks like we're drifting off topic, but what installer did you use for the QW 757? The one from the Purchase Agent or the old wrapper? I understand the Purchase Agent does not support FS9, but the wrappers still do so.

    Ethiopia crash

    Friend of mine is a check pilot for one of the largest airlines in the US. He told me weeks ago, that what most likely happened was that MCAS caused a nose down trim together , with a slew of cockpit warnings. The pilots eventually disabled the electronic trim by using the cutoff switches, and then as was mentioned in many discussions on this issue, they were unable to manually re-trim the aircraft due to the extreme forces required to do it manually. So as a last resort, with nothing else working, they turned the trim cutout switches back on again. so that they would at least have assistance in trimming back to level flight. This probably worked briefly, until MCAS kicked in again ( which they knew nothing about) , and caused more nose down trim. Not enough altitude to use any other method, so a crash was the guaranteed result. Why this is so difficult for some to understand, is what confuses me.
