    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.

    FPS Loss- Unlimited vs. Locked FPS- P3dv4.x

    It's just the frame limiter or the scanline, not both. I use scanline x/2 with -1 , I added the value alongside the scanline x/2 by clicking the arrow down. regards bob

  10. Theoretically my Oculus S is supposed to arrive tomorrow, though I don't believe that, because the Postal service in my area is run by pregnant turtles on heavy sleep meds. When it does actually arrive, I will definitely give my personal impressions,

    Any word on when we might see the highly anticipated GSX L2 update...?? I haven't seen any new news on either the FSDT forums or at their facebook page where this was officially announced. I'm eagerly looking forward to it...😁

    AI Traffic with X-Plane

    You will only get line up and wait if there is a plane on the runway and no traffic on final. If there is constantly traffic on final, you should turn down the traffic so you get a chance to take off. Dave

    @paulyg123 They went on strike. They didn't like the Environment they had to work under.😁

    I've got that bit 🙂 It's setting a desired altitude I'm struggling with - so easy on the Cessna, just dial it in!? 😞

    "Cannot Get Product Version Data"

    Welcome! For CCleaner, there's no real reason to have it purge your registry. That, or simply search the purge list for PMDG and uncheck those items before purging. When I used it back in 2008, it warned strongly against using the reg cleaner unless you were aware of the potential issues. I imagine that it still warns people, and recommends backing things up (and will do it for you). Running our installer in "repair" might work to put the entries back. Unsure of the issue you're describing with the OC. Is it not working correctly?

    Ctrl+z for altitude hold, if I'm not mistaken. Welcome to the AVSIM forums!

    Century autopilot

    I've just swapped over from FSX to P3D V4 and very happy with the performance and stability of the product so far. However, I'm used to the FSX Cessna's and I'm struggling to find out how I set the altitude in the Commander 114 - the CTRL SHIFT Z is mapped to Altitude bug but I can seem to find it!! Help?
