  1. I can only supply my own story. When I built my Skylake PC, I bought 16GB of 3200 c16 on sale because I didn't think it made much difference and I was more interested in the faster CPU. My frame rates in KSEA were much faster but I had microstutters which I could only eliminate by lowering my scenery settings in FSX. I was not satisfied in my upgrade. I then bought some 3200 c14 and the improvement was very noticeable. I fly GA planes often VFR at lower altitudes and the stuttering is gone at the higher autogen and scenery settings. Kdub
  2. I have started mapping the autopilot to my GoFlight panel. You need to discover the Lvars that the MU-2 uses. It can be done, it just takes time. Kdub
  3. Well, it turns out that 620x480 won't work in FSX. I was able to follow the above method using 1280x960 and produce excellent results. Whew! Kdub
  4. If I ever make another hardware upgrade, like when my noisy hard drive finally crashes, I will contact you. I enjoy the software and don't mind paying twice for it. Kdub
  5. So, I am running on a networked PC and I thought that I would try increasing my memory from 4 GB to 16 GB to eliminate the stuttering voices that I was experiencing. To my surprise Pilot2ATC viewed the increased memory as a new PC and refused to run without a new registration. With a new registration the application does indeed run much smoother. Kdub
  6. I know that this is a stale topic, but I just encountered a problem with my DTA unit and it may help others to hear about this. So after three years I started experiencing screen flickering which made the GPS unusuable. The fact is DTA is no longer producing the 2450, I believe because the LCD screen is no longer in production. I was panicking because I really enjoy the unit. After some thought, I decided to use my nVidia control panel in Windows to set up the specified 620x480 resolution for the LCD and changed my fsx.cfg file to reflect this change. That solved the problem. The LCD is a 620x480 native resolution but Windows doesn't recognize this so using the nVidia control panel custon resolution menu is the only way to set this up correctly. A big sigh of relief for me. Kdub

    What about the database? is it the same as the GTN series? Kdub

    I7 7700k

    Yep. I don't worry about performance anymore. I worry about my overclocked CPU degrading because if it fails I can't replace it. The technology that I am on isn't available. If my motherboard fails I will have to buy memory, a motherboard and a cpu, and possibly a new OS if I can't get W7 to install. All for very little performance gain. Kdub

    Flight1 Aspen Efd1000

    I know that this was an old post, but I have successfully integrated the Flight1 EFD1000 into the A36 cockpit with the RealityXP GNS. Kaydub

    I think it has been repaired, now. Kaydub

    Saitek trim wheel

    It was for me because the trim wheel was no longer on a USB. The USB conflicted with my sounds. It also left the trim setting wherever the autopilot had it at the moment that I disengage the autopilot so that there were no big pitch changes at crucial moments. Kdub
  14. I've heard this about the AS 350, which is the reason that I have not bought it. The Bell is not as bad, so I hear, and I have the 407. I can say that it is controllable, but still lacks inertia in the roll axis. I like the 407, but I've given up on X-Plane because of these roll issues. I prefer to do precision hovering and if you look at the YouTube videos of the Dreamfoil 407, you can see that it is constantly rolling in even the best conditions. I'm back to FSX and the Dodo. Kdub
