  1. Let me be more specific : I have seen proper models before, now I do not. I have scanned in vPilot for aircraft, and 703 models are found - but still only KLM show. I have tried to figure it out by looking at vPilot Help pages, but seems very complicated. I do not have WOAI models - have tried to download, but can't seem to follow the instructions (or rather I follow them and can't seem to finish procedure) . Would a possible solution be to just uninstall vPilot and reinstall ? Dave
  2. That's the problem. What's the answer ? Used to show appropriate model, but lately all aircraft in vPilot airport view show only KLM777 (my Default Model ). Thanks, Dave Hinson

    Engage Autopilot

    Thanks for replying, frog. My mistake, the Baron I am flying is the Perfect Flights Baron, not MilViz. Finally figured to look in the User's Guide and saw ( MUCH TO MY AMAZEMENT !) that there a popup autopilot gauge that does not appear on the Baron panel. Problem solved. Look in the manuals, word not allowed ! Dave

    Engage Autopilot

    OK - I'll remove this post. Thanks, all. By the way, I am NOT a newbie, I have been using FlightSim for many, many years, including VATSIM controlling. I just can't really find out if the MilViz Baron G1000 autopilot is on or off. There are other planes using with G1000 that have a separate autopilot box, but I can't find one on the Baron.

  5. I know this is a stupid question, but I have been flying PMDG aircraft for so long, I forgot how to use the Garmin 1000. Been reviewing the Help manual, but don't see ANYTHING about how to engage the autopilot and have it hold a heading or Nav course. I press Z and it seems to keep the wings level, etc., but I can't have it change heading with the Heading knob. Can anyone help an "old" newbie trying to relearn the G1000? Dave Hinson
  6. Thanks, all. Good information.
  7. Looks like I have to spend some more money to get 4K. I am now limited to 2K (1920x1080) with Samsung SA300 monitor and GTX660Ti video card.(which I used to think was top of the line)!! Maybe I'll wait until I can go to P3D. Thanks for all the input, guys.
  8. Thanks,nas123. So it just applies to the monitor you use - no special software or FSX settings ?
  9. I see some very amazing videos stating they were in "4K". I know 4K means 4,000, and I suppose it has something to do with screen resolution, but what does it mean with respect to a really sharp video, and how do you get it ??? I search other forums that might be more appropriate for this topic, but didn't see anything more appropriate. Dave Hinson

    Not receiving ILS

    Thanks, guys, for all the suggestions. My problem is, as you can probably surmise, old scenery. No RW35. Funny thing is, though, I did do an RNAV(GPS) Z approach to RW35, but I suppose those are not coded in the airport AFCAD. Thanks again, all. Dave Hinson

    Not receiving ILS

    Thanks, Jon. I was flying into KMSP yesterday in the snow, for ILS RW35. As I said, I had chosen the ILS 35 approach in the FMS, and had entered the freq from both the FMC Approach page and from the downloaded FAA sheet. I did have them entered in both ILS receivers preparatory to using autoland. I did (of course) notify Approach Controller that I was not receiving ILS. Yes, the 737NGX. Dave Hinson

    Not receiving ILS

    A couple of time I do not receive an ILS signal, even when close to an airport. I use the frequency given in the Approach page of the FMS. I have the "nearly" latest version of NavData ( I am waiting for the next version at end of month ). Any ideas ?

    I have (Must Have!) an Ad-Blocker on my computer. Else, when trying to download a file on some web pages, ads block the download. I have tried to add Avsim to my "White Pages", but that does not seem to keep from blocking ads from Avsim. Anyone have any suggestions ?

    Runway Lengths in HUD

    Good idea. Thanks
  15. On airport charts in Europe RW lengths and elevations are given in meters. I suppose you must convert to feet (multiply by 3) to enter in the HUD ? Or is there a way to set up the HUD to use meters ? Dave Hinson
