    Slow to Climb?

    For example, this quote from FCOM System Description, ATPCS arming conditions: ATPCS means Automatic Take-off Power Control System. In case of an engine failure during takeoff the ATPCS provides uptrimmed power on the remaining engine and automatically feathers the failed engine. This feature enables to reduce takeoff power for both engines by approximately 10% without affecting takeoff performance The ATPCS systems has two modes dependant which arming conditions are fulfilled: Uptrim and auto feathering functions armed: PWR MGT Selector TO ATPCS pushbutton ON Both Power Levers above 49° Both torques above 46% Aircraft on ground Auto feathering function armed: PWR MGT Selector TO ATPCS pushbutton ON Both Power Levers above 49° Both torques above 46% Aircraft in flight
  3. What can I say, Jethro and vortex681? Fantastic to both for that heads-up and links included. Many thanks. So well elucidated. Now I fee I can go forwards with this dilemma tat was bugging me.

    GSX update on the way

    I actually bought L2 to fix the numerous airports I had with jetway issues and not for the "zombies" lol. After using L2 for a while, I wouldn't give up my little NPC friends for nothing. They do add quite a bit to the simulation. I'd love to see them walking around inside of the terminals, too. LVFR has modeled the people inside of the terminal in KMSY and it looks real nice pulling up to the gate seeing the people inside. Umberto - thank you for this update.Amazing work! GSX 1&2 have been 2 of the best additions ever! Here in America, we call that blowing smoke up your skirt. 🤯
  5. This should do the trick in P3Dv4.5 also... If the wakes installed by Marciac18 are really the latest they should be corrected. I will make a complete set of wakes available here later today for testing.
  6. I am new to the whole XP deal -- and to be upfront this is for my own personal use and I probably won't release it unless Carenado says it's OK. At this time I am not worried about knobs or buttons working -- I just want to get model in place and go from there. After two days of messing with it I was able to get 3D models of GTN 650 in however I have two problems I can't figure out. 1. The screen gets cut off; it's almost like it's still wrapping on the GNS 430 although it's gone from OBJ file as well as the Planemaker 3D cockpit (looked for GNS 430 panel and removed both.) 2. I still have knobs/buttons from GNS 430 if I move my mouse around vicinity of those original areas. In Carenado I found that the I3.obj had the cockpit gauges and that is where I was able to completely remove the GNS 430 3D and put in GTN 650 3D. I see some knobs/buttons in cockpit.obj file but if I modify that (remove them) and try to export in AC3D it tells me 263 things have no textures. Then the game goes nuts when I load plane. I'm open to any advice direction to look--I literally figured out the 3D models on my own after 2 days of digging.
  7. Just finished transferring over to my 8086K @ 5.1 /1.3v and I'm quite happy with my P3Dv4 performance over my 7700K @ 5.0. I cheated and just moved my HD over and didn't bother to clean install. Win 10 took care of everything for me and I used a program to remove the old driver from my previous board. As some had mentioned I'm seeing steady 30 FPS on my 4K@30hz display compared to the 7700K which would struggle from time to time depending on the scenery. The only time I see a micro load is when its a scenery issue. To me this was a worthy upgrade.
  8. I saw the inside of one once at a museum in Nevada, the old Harrah's museum before they sold off a lot of their collection moved it to downtown Reno. It was an impressive aircraft to look at, a pioneer of the DC10, 727 and L1011 if you think about it. It was ahead of its time, I can only imagine flying in one, oldest airliner I have flown on is a PSA Lockheed Electra between SoCal and the Bay Area, which I flew on a couple of times before I flew my first jet ride, on a PSA 727. When I was five years old, back in '66, my Mom and my brothers and I had to commute to the Bay Area to be with my Dad, who worked at Mare Island while looking for a place up there for us to live, he finally found Napa and I moved there from Burbank on my Kindergarten graduation night, my last flight out of Burbank for some thirty years, just a couple of hours after a sleepy little kid graduated from Kindergarten, lol..... But I always woke up in time for the landing and to see the city lights of the SF Bay Area come into view. When you fly at five years of age, you get hooked on flying for the rest of your life, at least I did, and growing up for me it was all about aviation and tourism. I could not fly until Light Sport came into being around 2006, but I flew often for business and as a tourist, enough miles to have gone to the moon and back. John

    Yeah, I know it' confusing, but this is the way the ATR is measuring. Degrees of power lever deflection and percent of torque on the indicators... it' their logic...
  10. It's certainly possible as this commercial software proves: https://www.secudrives.com/usb-copy-protection/. This sounds like exactly what you're looking for: https://www.wenovo.com/freeware/usb-disks-access-manager-freeware.php and it's free (but may need to be installed on the user's PC). Alternatively: http://www.kakasoft.com/usb-copy-protect/benefits.html. Sadly, not free ($49.95) and I've no idea how safe/effective it is but there's a free download so you may get some sort of free trial with it.
  11. I bought a ride on one at an airshow years ago for my daughter and I. 80 mph GS or so. It was a slow lumbering flight but worth every penny! Great memories!
  12. The touch screen is 100% operation in VR mode! If you struggle with knobs etc this can be an alternative.
  13. I took my son on the first airplane ride in his life on the oldest flying passenger plane in the world, the Tin Goose. It appeared we were flying with the oldest pilot in the world too. 😁This was a momentous flight as a couple of weeks later this immaculate Ford Trimotor was destroyed in a crash in Michigan.

    GSX update on the way

    We posted another video, to show how easy will be to create a custom logo for operators and jetways in the next update: We always knew the GSX PaintKit was difficult to use, now thanks to P3D4, we got rid of it, in the most efficient way...

    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

  20. 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
  23. 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.
