    Please post the resolution

    Good idea, how do I do that? 😊

    Yoko+ PLUS yoke

    I ordered one from Virtual-Fly and it arrived on Monday of this week. Very impressed with the precision and feel of the controls. Quite a bit more accurate than my faithful CH Eclipse yoke that I have had for years. Expensive but for me, well worth the price. Lyn

    A2A is the gold standard for GA aircraft.

  6. Hi Rick, Thankyou, I don't have or at least don't find the need to permanently change file attributes, but I do see what you are working toward so the link below might help, there are others but this one seemed like a good place to start. That also goes for the Password hidden folder YT vid, there are probably better ones out there but its a start. Using the CMD window "Attrib.exe" & switches, for a group of files or single file you may wish to permanently change. I would suggest isolating a copy of the files you wish to change before making attribute changes, thus preserving the original files and their original attributes. Then make your attribute changes to files in that isolated folder before burning to DVD. Here is a link and small tutorial article: https://www.thewindowsclub.com/change-file-attributes-windows-attribexe The password "Hiding a password locked folder" method may not serve your purposes if you wish to share on DVD, because the folder would need to be unlocked and visible in order to copy/burn to DVD, defeating the password lock is still quite easy for a clued up recipient. Here is a YT vid for that also: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TeZjaxk-H4o

    GTN 650/750

    jovejunior, Another member had a similar issue to you with the aircraft turning to 360 degrees. According to the F1GTN_Setup_and_Users_Guide.pdf, on page 15 it describes an issue with how the flight plan is loaded into the GTN. The other member that had issues had to enter their flight plan manually into the GTN to correct their issue. Not sure if this info helps. Rob

    Fast and easy to fly GA Plane

    I like the Ant Tecnam Sierra. It's good fun flying (as an easy all rounder), is reasonably quick, very easy to fly with little learning curve, includes an easy to follow manual that's built in and accessable while flying and it supports 3rd party GPS like the F1 GTN 750. Plus he has a demo to trial with. https://www.antsairplanes.com/sierralsa.html And here is a short video of it in P3D v4 Prepar3D v4.4 short joyflight around Sekiu airport USA (11S) in the Ant Tecnam Sierra Cheers
  9. Not terribly excited for a Duchess in AFS2. The sim already has a Baron which is a much more suitable touring aircraft and not just a pure trainer. Seems like an odd choice for the first AFS2 payware aircraft. On the other hand I'm looking forward to their Arrow. Looks like it will be the turbocharged version too, which is a good fit as much of the scenery currently available in AFS2 is mountainous. There's a distinct lack of higher-performance, single-engine GA aircraft in the sim.

    @GeeBee in your last video, Ordinary day at office - ATR 42-500, at 00:45 it is very clear that the Power Levers (left set of levers from the quadrant) are in the notch position, small white mark, they are not "pushed well aft of the 68% TO notch" (PS: I'm saying again, the unit of measurement is not % !!!!, it seems you are not reading my posts at all ! ) OK, let's try something else..... See this photo. The power lever is at Ground Idle. At the base of the power lever, there is a small white triangle, attached to the lever. Do you see it? Good ( I hope ). Now, you read the position of the lever where that small triangle is, not anything else, just where the small triangle is.

  12. As stated in title, if I disable the "minimise to taskbar" in preferences, then pressing my "toggle UI" shortcut doesn't bring up the Chaseplane UI. Will hide it though if it's already showing.

    You must be blind, the PLs a clearly in the TO notch = 90% torque in your link. In the video you can clearly see the pointers from the torque gauge at the beginning of the yellow range = 90%. For some inexplainable reason in your ATR this means 68% torque and for 46Pilot the same position results in 90% torque. I have to admit that I don't know why 46Pilot started to use PL angles since this really confuses things and there are no cockpit and/or instrument markings which mention PL degrees. The CLs in AUTO means 42 degrees but he never uses degrees with the CLs.

    30hz vs 60hz

    You just do exactly what Bert Pieke says. "In P3D set fps to unlimited and vsync off. In RTSS, create a profile for Prepar3d, select Scanline X/2 and set the number beside it to a non-zero value. That is it." Then, after seeing it working you can experiment further with it or choose not to use it. Cheers

    Whaaaaaaaat???? Talking for so much time about this and you say this????? Man, I will tell you for the LAST time. Power levers in the NOTCH (68 degrees, not percent, DEGREES !!!!! watch the marking at the lever base !!!), TORQUE Indicator is 90 PERCENT ! Have you ever, ever read my previous post where I've described this?? See this screen shot from my sim, it has some red squares to make it visible and obvious for you! POWER LEVER NOTCH (white marking, 68 degrees), CONDITION LEVERS AUTO, TORQUE INDICATOR 90% !

    Woah horsey .... the TO notch is NOT 90%. Watch the videos. The TO notch is around the 68% mark. It is not I, that is mixing stuff up.

  19. Of course it's smaller since it doesn't contain any performance tables….

    https://youtu.be/kFur1ZlCwOg Another 42-500 -- PLs both pushed well aft of the 68% TO notch...... So that's 2 in an hour. Clearly SOPs differ wildly. Both PLs and CLs can be set differently for takeoff. Possibly depends on conditions, maybe on weight. Bottom line though: if it is meant in theory for the TO position to give 90-100% torque, as it was in the Flight1 ATR 72-500, then it is NOT modelled correctly in the Carenado. RW videos show just about every combination of SOPs... NOW I am getting obsessed with SOPs ! But SOPs are irrelevant. What matters is what is meant to happen with PLs in TO notch and dial switched to TO. My Carenado gives 68% power.... not enough for full power take off and climb. Which I believe, is why this thread was started !

    Alex, your time isn't wasted as I want to know from a real world ATR pilot how this AC should be managed. So keep on with your postings. Cheers, Michael

    I do get the impression that you are mixing up PL, CL and torque. Again, if the CLs are in AUTO or at max/full forward doesn't make any difference. Having the PLs further forward than at the TO notch (90%) does make a big difference and haven't even found any performance tables for takeoff performance with the PLs at more then 90%, forward of the TO notch. Can you point me to the points where you can clearly see 98% and 68% torque? None of them is a TO setting!

    GSX update on the way

    For those that are interested in auto control of the doors, as you know the FSL Airbuses already do it but you can use LINDA (see forum here on Avsim) which is a hardware controller and it has a module that does this for PMDG and others based on a timer. Seems to work very well for me without issues. As an aside, I was only using GSX 2 for the pushback....which is kind of crazy, but with the auto features of the updated FSL A320, it is just amazing to watch GSX do its thing. Can't wait for the new update.

    GTN 750

    There are three .exe file options in the aircraft folder in SimObjects to install the FMC into the ATR. There is an entry I presume for the Aircraft.cfg file. Which one of these should I install for P3Dv4, and with the text installed will it take over as the FMS entirely and give full functionality to the autopilot. As you can guess I have never used the GTN before, but if it gives a better automatic flight option(s), then I will go find the appropriate manual.

    GSX update on the way

    do you mean you would like to see AI (SODE) Jetway docking / daytime low visibility approach / runway lighting etc ..... why / how do you fly to an abandoned airport in the fog below minimums just to see the doors open, wow .......????

    Feels like I'm wasting my time, sorry for saying this... Please, see attached photo, print screen from my sim. <a href="https://ibb.co/8xHC9ZD"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/8xHC9ZD/atr-90.png" alt="atr-90" border="0"></a> Make sure the people from that forum are not talking about the 42-300 or 72-200 series, please, and stop trying to convince us that you are wright. It makes no logic to put in 100% OVRD, when the AUTO mode with PWR MGT does the same thing. I'm out of this, cannot continue anymore. If you want to listen to what I'm telling you, ok, if not, fly the ATR in the sim in whatever configuration you want and live with that.
