  1. True, better than what I have.
  2. Wow! I think I would need motion platform though.
  3. My work laptop is Windows 7 Enterprise and got the update. I had to uninstall as it just felt sluggish especially web pages in chrome. The cpu was would go up to 90% right away doing anything. It was all over the place all the time, almost never seeming to take a break even when typing. It's an i7-4710MQ. I tried going to turbo and disabling some services not needed anymore, that did not help. We will be looking at getting onto Win 10 sooner. Oddly, MS applications, well specifically SQL Server Management Studio seemed to be somewhat ok. Well, scratch that loading files the File->Recent Menu froze for a minute.
  4. With AirHauler, I have been taking off above max gross weight. So, during one approach I lost track of speed and did not hear the stall warning; consequently, I fell to the ground such that no amount of power was going to get going again. Is there a way to calculate stall speeds?
  5. I was watching flightradar24 yesterday around 3:30pm EST and saw two planes from Europe go missed approach at Newark after holding for 2 circuits west of the airport. They ended up going to IAD. There was another one that was holding from Dublin, but after the first two went missed, that one also followed the other two IAD. I saw JFK arrivals go right to IAD as JFK was closed. One was from Dubai and had been in the air for 13 hours.
  6. I ran this on my work laptop. It states that it's vulnerable, but has been patched. I remember starting in November, I had a Lenovo Intel firmware (bios) update for Intel Management Engine. I had another update yesterday.
  7. Kind of confusing, but... https://www.marketwatch.com/story/intel-stock-headed-for-worst-day-in-more-than-a-year-amd-pops-on-chip-design-flaw-report-2018-01-03
  8. It changed my default sound away from HDMI, messed up my GoFlight USB ports. Two GF's don't work. ch pedals also stopped working. I had this symptoms on initial setup, so hopefully will be able to get them going again.
  9. That's from 2012. I'd like one for the for HD version.
  10. I notice that when I reduce throttle from 40% to about 25% there is a big reduction in power and the airspeed drops like a rock from 120 to 80. I know there was a modified air file at one point, but is there a newer one for P3D v4?
  11. Yes, I actually used EGCC, Manchester for reference with LittleNav Map.
  12. I selected it and EGCD was still not showing up.
  13. I am looking for EGCD and it's not in the GTN database. I noticed the trainer has an option for Global Airports, but not sure if that is available to us? There have been quite a few that I have are not in the GTN database. Any other ideas?
  14. Thank you for the quick reply. 1. The files are renamed. 2, TrackIR was not running, just OpenTrack. 3, The TrackIR icons are on CP. I start TrackIR, but then motion stopped. I stopped OT, restarted CP and then started OT and CP. It seems to be working ok now. Thanks again!
  15. Is there a way to verify that I have configured my TrackHat and ChasePlane correctly? I have it working, but just want to verify ChasePlane is getting the data and not P3d.
