  1. Greetings all, I was hoping you might tell me what I am doing wrong. I am going through the checklist step by step, yet I am not able to get the engines to start. Would someone please help me shed some light on this subject? Thank you, Kevin
  2. I've got 2 hours in and no complaints. Great addition to the hanger. Running REX Essentials + OD, REX Soft Clouds, Orbx FTX scenery... LOOKS AMAZING! I like how it handles, the textures are amazing. The sunset in the window I spectacular. Worth it! Kevin
  3. Great work! Glad to see the repaints flowing in... Rather see more paints than flames.... KJ
  4. I've been painting awhile. But this gave me a new perspective on how I repaint. Going to put this to good use. Thank you for the great video. Kevin
  5. I like www.airnav.comThis has downloads for approach plates for a lot of airports.Kevin
  6. I would propose to take the Dreamfleet Beechcraft A36 Bonanza or B58 Baron. You are going to need something that has pretty good endurance, and able to get you over the Rocky and Cascade Mountains. You might be able to fly in between the peaks that are higher than 11,000 feet. Plus if you want to fly VFR, you might need some extra power to get you VFR on top. I would lean towards the Baron, as this gives you the added performance of two engines. Plus, if you do any simulated engine failures you can fly to the nearest airport and not have to put it down in a field somewhere.Just my opinion. Good luck on the flight, and I hope you accomplish everything.Kevin
  7. I love all there planes. I am glad to see that a payware company is not distracted with airliners.... Truly a general aviation friendly company for private pilots like myself....:D They have perfected their craft with each release and continue to improve upon the last....Kevin
  8. couple of things:1) is your default flight default, meaning using the default cessna 172 at Seattle Intl.?2) did you try to unistall the C206 then reinstall from start to finish? Uninstall the C206 completely, then reinstall.Just my thoughts. I know I run into a lot of problems when I change my default flight from the Microsoft Cessna 172, etc.Kevin
  9. I to have fallen victim to many payware addons, and find that I'm only using a few of them. I have stopped purchasing addons, with the exception of one that I am waiting patiently for release. The Flight Scenery version of Portland Intl. That will be my official last payware. I can no longer justify my purchases when I don't have a lot of time to begin with to enjoy them. I really like addons, but there comes a point where I need to be realistic about my choices and what I do with my time. :)Besides with the great freeware out there, I am finding them to be just as enjoyable. :)Kevin
  10. PMDG is the most popular in my opinion. Even though it has been around a while, it is perfect in almost every way. It has a programable FMC, systems, etc. Very good aircraft, worth the money and lots and lots of repaints to choose from. :DKevin
  11. Larry, whether people say thank you or not... your work is appreciated.My repaints have yet to break a download of 1300. I don't expect people to take time to email me for a thank you for creating a repaint of an aircraft. I am not trying to discout your feelings, however we live in a thankless world. I can't tell you how many times I have volunteered my time to one hobby, organization, or another and never got a thank you. I don't do it for the thanks, I do it because I want to give back to a community. Think of it this way, by you donating your time to the hobby of FS, others are thanking you by donating their time to the hobby. It is a community effort, and for one I am thankful for everyones contributions. I will continue to provide my repaints when I can, as long as others continue to contribute to the hobby in their own way. Because of the freeware and payware contributors, this hobby will continue to grow and get better and better.Thank you to Larry and everyone who contributes in downloads or ideas.Kevin
  12. Dreamfleet A36 all the way. Then upgrade your sim rating to a twin like the Dreamfleet Baron... All a master piece!:D
  13. I feel the same way about gas prices. How much is too much for a tank of gas for your car.... :) Thats for another forum though....Kevin
  14. I do not own the Captain Sim 757, but I am becoming interested. The reason I have not purchased is because it does not have full functioning systems like the LevelD 767. I am curious if anyone has successfully merged the LevelD 767 FMC, PFD, and MFD with the VC of the Captain Sim 757. This of course just being a temporary solution until Captain Sim releases the full system version in the second quarter of 2006.Thanks for the information..... :DKevin
  15. While I am not a fan of having to pay for a re-download after I purchase an item... I can say that it is up to individual companies to do what they feel is best for their own succuss. It is up to the potential customer to figure out if it is worth their effort or not. When I download a product I always back it up on CD. It doesn't matter if I download freeware or payware. I just hate redownloading items over and over again. Payware companies do not seem to be charging for patches, which I download and back up on CD also.Best advice for those that do not want to be nickel and dimed to death is invest in a DVD or CDrom burner and back all your stuff up. Also keep all your registration codes on the same CD as your purchases in a text document or something. All my confirmation emails and registation emails I get from payware companies I back up in Text document form for future reference. You never know when you are going to have a computer melt down and you will need to reinstall your favorite payware and freeware. Organization is key to a great running FS.Kevin
