    Repaint Requests

    Request a repaint of Air Botswana
  3. Great video friend, the bit at the end was funny! I will sub your YT channel, look forward to more reviews.
  4. This looks just amazing and shows the power of a next gen engine as opposed the creaking ESP I was using in FSX. As others have pointed out - once XP11 sorts out its seasons, weather & ATC it will have REALLY arrived :) I jumped ship to XP11 a year ago and uninalled FSX last week, wasnt easy to do, like saying bye to an old friend but I want to deal with just one sim and its gonna be the new one.
  5. The add-on is FS pilotshop product. FS pilotshop Backup software disc; FRP-235. you can find Regards Kenneth Leerdam

    Carenado ATR42-500 Announced

    I plan to get the ATR in the near future. It looks great. I look at systems depth like this: For aircraft that I'm going to fly on a regular basis, I think more systems depth is nice. The current offerings for the A320 series, although I know FSLabs ones is deeper than the Aerosoft, are generally what I'd be looking for along with the NGX. Since there are a lot of airlines that fly these and they are flown all over the world, the typical enthusiast will have a lot of opportunities to learn how to fly the aircraft. Of course, for those that prefer long haul, the same goes for the 747 and 777 offerings from PMDG. For me, an aircraft like the ATR is more like a filler aircraft for occasional use. For these, I don't want a great deal of systems depth, because I don't want to have to relearn the aircraft every time I fly it (maybe once a month). What's most important for me with this is Navigraph updates and a reasonable FMC.

    1st Flight

    Hello, Right for the HOTEL mode not working. Another big problem for my point of view, the Power Management. Condition = AUTO Power = on the mark around 60% (forget the real name) PWR MGT on CRZ : 100% (!) instead of around 70% in my memory So in cruise at FL130 you reach the max speed quickly. Do you confirm that I am right ? Long time without flying the ATR but had lot of hours on the F1. Thanks, Fred

    LorbyFlashlight no run

    Thank you very much OLIVER for your excellent concern to solve problems, delete everything called "LorbyFlashlight.exe_Url ..." and everything works perfectly. Thanks again. In relation to the placement of all the scenarios in one place, I will do the test and if I have doubts consult I congratulate you on all the tools you have.

    People got burned with the crj and probably feel they have got burned with the 32x too.

    What is being said in what you quoted is that MCAS pushes the nose down via automatic stab trim. From simming you will know that when the aircraft is out of trim with AND, you have to pull back hard on the yoke to keep the nose up. The trim pushing the nose down is the force you feel when pulling back. What the author of the article said is that MCAS actually pushes the yoke forward to create a force the pilot has to work against. This is not correct, however. Bert is right. The author is also a bit off on the 737 MAX in terms of how the flight controls work and the overall amount of computer authority over the aircraft. It's possible that what he misunderstood is that the MAX has a FBW spoiler system. At certain flaps settings (15-30) and thrust close to idle, the spoilers will extend automatically to increase drag and thereby increase thrust above idle. It also helps to establish an adequate nose gear margin for touchdown by extending the spoilers slightly at flaps 30/40, reducing lift and requiring a higher AoA. But this is all FBW technology there is in the MAX. The flight controls are all still connected to the control column mechanically and assisted by hydraulic systems. Unlike in an Airbus, there is no computer in the MAX that ignores pilot input and refuses to move control surfaces when it senses the pilots are about to screw up. The hydraulic systems do take some of that 'feel' of moving the control surfaces away, but only because without their help no human could move the control surfaces more than a tiny bit compared to their actual range, let alone when the aircraft is flying and there is aerodynamic load on the control surfaces (think about trying to trim manually using the wheel at high speeds). It's not an artificial feel.

    CaptainSim 757-300 Released

    Do anyone knows if the base back also includes the windshield effect for rain ?
  12. Nevermind... I am SOOO stupid. Did not switch from ALGN to NAV on the IRS switches.

    Awesome shots! How's the single engine performance? lol

    Repaint Requests

    I didn't mean to Hijack another thread and turn it into a repaint request area. So post them here and maybe a painter will see them and paint them 🙂
  15. I am having the same issues... however I do not have the DLNK CNCT button and I can't log into ACARS. I have done everything in loading the route via the datalink, but I can't load my routes, get wind info... anything.

    Guys, he has already said he doesn't take requests. I didn't mean to hijack this thread and start a repaint request thread. 😬 I shall create another thread for repaint requests.

    Slow to Climb?

    Maybe Im missing something, but she seems so slow to climb! Power Mode into Climb Levers in auto VS Engaged Seems to take an age to get into cruise

    FPS in V4.5 (waiting for a fix)

    Maybe you could get a job at LM to help them test thier stuff. When is this patch coming out?

    FPS in V4.5 (waiting for a fix)

    Nope still stutters like a poodle trying to poo. If I run with no HT the sim stutters and finally ctds If I run with HT and no affinty it stutters If I run with HT and affinity it runs smooth but I get the pauses over autogen areas over cities. Was it last year was or this year LM said it was the year for the simmer?

    Ethiopia crash

    Hello, I rather think that he does indeed know what he is writing about.
  22. I haven't been able to pay attention to all of the gauges within my cessna panel, but I have just noticed that they are not working. When I click on them to set them up, I notice they said "Displayed for X-Plane only". OK, so I removed them from the panel and selected 2 others only to find out they all say ".....for X-Plane only". None of them work with FSX. So what am I supposed to do to make these work in FSX?
  23. Well, as soon as you mention the words "business" or Professional" prices tend to get silly, often times for no discernable reason. In this case there is probably a bit of a reason, but I would suspect this technology will translate downwards to other, consumer facing headsets eventually and prices will drop. The question of course, is how soon that will happen.
  24. I am really looking forward to this product. It looks amazing. It will be nice to see it release in P3D later this year for V4.x and V5.

    Interesting article, but I am not sure that he is correctly describing the hardware systems (he is a software engineer..) Based on what I have read, the MCAS system does not push the control column forward, but only operates on the stabilizer via the trim motors..

    Voxatc does not assign star, only full ils

    I looked carefully at all the STAR approaches for ELLX and their is nothing unusual about them. The only thing that I noticed that is unique about ELLX is that the DIK ident is used for both an NDE and a VOR at the same location. Why this might matter to VOXATC, I have no clue.
