    My 1st VR Flight!!!

    I as using the Oculus Rift. You will Love it!!
  3. Thanks Sammy, I have to try this again. When I had the pop up open it took up the whole screen when VR started. I had to close it in the plug ins.
  4. Is there any way to control the GTN750 when it is built into the panel, like on the Just Flight PA28 Turbo Arrow. The opening screen shows up on the panel, but I cannot get past that screen to the map or the settings. Again, I am not using it is a pop up in this aircraft. Thanks, Howard

    GTN750 and VR?

    Hi Jean-Luc, I just did my first flight in VR and I Loved it. I used the default 172 with REP and the 750. When I had the 750 as a pop up, it filled up the whole screen in VR. Any suggestion on how to fix this? Thanks a lot, Howard
  6. Okay, here goes. I have been an Avid Flight Simmer since Sub Logic's FSII in 1984 on a PC Jr. I just completed my 1st flight in VR and, I am honestly, still shaking from the experience. I used the default Cessna 172 with REP and flew a circuit around Meigs Field with the recently released ORBX scenery. At first I was a little under whelmed with the sharpness and clarity of the scenery, compared to how it looks with out VR. But, as soon as I started looking around the cockpit and gave it a little throttle and started moving that all changed. I really felt like I was in the cockpit and thought that I smelled the fuel and exhaust! Everything that seemed so important before VR, all melted away as soon as the aircraft lifted off, and my stomach had a hard time keeping up with the airplane. I am not kidding! I have taken a few lessons, flew many hours as a passenger in a 172, and probable a couple thousand hours of flight simulators and THIS really felt Real! I am sure that the visuals can be tweaked and improved, but this is what I have always craved for in flight simulation. This really beats the constant searching for new scenery, aircraft and add-ons. I will unplug my longtime three monitors and am sold on VR. I have a few questions regarding some of the settings in VR and need to talk to some of the more experienced people, but that is for another day. Thank you to Austin Meyer, Laminar, Jetline Systems and Oculus Rift for finally making my dream a reality. Howard Bloom

    GTN 750 with Default Cessna 172 with REP?

    Bourrinopathe, I downloaded your new file, but I cannot open it, as it is labeled as a 7Z File. I really love your work and appreciate yours and Jean-Lucs wonderful assistance. Thank you, Howard

    GTN 750 with Default Cessna 172 with REP?

    That's really weird. It was working fine and then I had to delete the preferences file and it started acting like this. How can I reconfigure the aircraft to recognize the GTN 750 like it was 2 days ago. Thanks a lot Jean-Luc, Howard
  9. Hi Jean-Luc, When i start up the 172 with REP and the GTN750 it comes with a blank screen 750 and says it is GTN750 1. If I close the GTN750 1 and restart the 750 Plug in, it starts up correctly with the GTN750. On all other aircraft it starts up correctly the first time.

    Saitek Multi Panel Display?

    Thank you Frank. I will do as you said. Take care, Howard
  11. The display window on the Multi Panel has stopped showing any information. Any advise on drivers and\or software would really be appreciated. It was working until I got a new PC with Windows 10. Thanks a lot,

    Install Error

    Yes, during the installation of the Trainer it asked which unit I was installing and I accidentally clicked away the check mark for the GTN, thinking that I was supposed to click on that unit. The next time I left the default check mark alone and all was fine. Hope this helps!

    Does anyone have a solution for this problem? I love the 750 and am 'lost' without it!
