    Realair Lancair Legacy

    For what it is worth, I have never seen a GNS gauge in the Legacy, only the GTN.
  3. Store the flightplan in the GTN, and then edit it.

    Universal FMS?!!

    The rules for FSX and P3DV4 are different... FSX looks in the panel folder first, P3DV4 looks in the Gauges folder first. Just to make sure the cab file is not used any more, you can rename the original FMCF50.CAB file to as an additional step.

    List of 3rd Party add-on A/C supporting RXP

    Lets try this the other way around.. which aircraft are you interested in?
  7. You can use your computer keyboard to enter waypoints, once you have activated the cursor at the first character.

    P3DV4 Hardware Config

    The OP is actually planning a faster 1 TB drive... not a data drive The Orbx scenery folders can be spread across multiple drives, using file linking. Any Orbx regions that cause pauses when loading (like SoCal) or addon airports that cause stutters should be put on the fastest drive you have got to minimize this annoying effect..

    You guys had me scared...

    It is what???
  10. Guess which one is me?? ps. Inspired by this flight, I now have my FSX Marchetti installed in P3D.. looking better than ever..

    FMC with GTN

    As best I know, if you select the GTN750 option for this aircraft, the FMC is indeed inop. I had a quick look, but have not found a way to reactivate it.. Maybe someone else..

    Yaw Damper

    Have a look in your panel.59\CustomPC12 folder. There should be an ASandYD.xml file. Open it with Notepad.. You will see: <!-- Turn off YD if AP disconnected via Yoke Button --> (A:Autopilot Master,bool) ! (A:AUTOPILOT YAW DAMPER,bool) and if{ (>K:YAW_DAMPER_TOGGLE) 0 (>L:AP CONNECT,bool) } If you do not like that, change it to <!-- Turn off YD if AP disconnected via Yoke Button (A:Autopilot Master,bool) ! (A:AUTOPILOT YAW DAMPER,bool) and if{ (>K:YAW_DAMPER_TOGGLE) 0 (>L:AP CONNECT,bool) } --> and that section is disabled.

    First of all, you need to start with a set of P3D settings that run well on your system, without payware planes and airports. I also came from FSX, and this is what I would recommend as a starter set. You can change all this later when you have things working well. Since you do not have an HT option, forget about affinity masks, P3DV4 will make good use of your four cores. Also forget about PTA etc for now.. You are taking too big a leap and as a result, you cannot tell what is causing the performance issues. When you have P3D running, have a look at the Windows Task Manager and see what is using CPU cycles.. you should not be at 100% CPU usage, at least not on an ongoing basis, only when loading scenery.
