    QW 787 CDU Anomaly

    I have already posted this over on the Quality Wings forum but so far no help. Trying here. On the RH CDU scratchpad there is a string of V's and W's that look like this: VWVWVWVWVWVWVWVWVWVVW. I Cannot clear this out and use the scratch pad. When I use the Clr button I can clear it up somewhat but the letters are resistant to clearing then they just comes back immediately. I even went so far as to uninstall the plane, redownload, and reinstall. Still have the same problem. The LH CDU works fine. I have no idea where these letters came from or how to get rid of them. Appreciate any advice. Jim
  2. Apologies if this is fairly long but here is the story: I received an email stating that the Feelthere ERJ 135/145XRJ SP was out so I uninstalled my current copy, downloaded and installed the new version. When I selected it within P3D v4.3 the windshield wipers would jump about 1 or 2 inches in exactly 1 second interval. Wiper switches were off and no power to the airplane. Uninstalled and downloaded and installed again. Wipers no longer jumped and were stationary. However, the emergency light switch would jump from Off to Arm at that same 1 second interval and couldn't be turned on. A subsequent reinstall didn't fix so I uninstalled again. Checked other planes starting with the A2A Cherokee. The yoke, still being secured with the seat belt was jumping at 1 second interval until released from seatbelt. No jumping, however, the GPS/Nav switch has a flashing white box around the GPS switch label. Guess what? 1 second interval. The QW 787 MFD Right push button flashing = 1 second but when power applied to plane the indicator light jumps between left and right. 1 second. Is ok on the copilot side. Aerosoft CRJ700 has some lights flashing on and off - no power applied. I have no idea what is causing this. Rebooted computer and even reinstalled LM Client.msi. Sure could use some help because I'm lost on this one. Thanks. Jim
  3. Hi, After reading your post I decided to fly both planes for comparison. As far as hand flying both seemed about the same as far as I can tell. The throttles on the H850 are a little more touchy in that small movement caused more of a rapid reduction/increase in engine speed. If I would give one an edge on flying ease it would be the Phenom but not by much. Hope this helps. Jim

    Pro ATC X Pros and Cons

    Thanks Jeroen. I think you have convinced me that it is a worthwhile purchase. Sounds like this is what I am looking for. Info is much appreciated. Jim

    Pro ATC X Pros and Cons

    I am mainly interested in communication without voice control. I have P2ATC now but the program struggles trying to understand me which is a little frustrating. Just want simple method to communicate. I took Wayne's advice and did a search on the P3D forum. Got many opinions. I may just wind up flipping a coin in order to make the decision on whether to buy it or not. Jim

    I'm considering buying Pro ATC X and would like some opinions on it. Pros and cons as the title suggests. Thanks for any input. Jim

    Headset Plus Speakers

    Not sure if this has been asked before but my question is can a headset be used only for hearing ATC while external speakers used for aircraft and environmental sounds? If so, how do I accomplish this? Thanks for any guidance. Jim
  9. Got it fixed using Bert's mod. He really does help this community. Jim
  10. In both the Phenom 100 and 300 the GPS magenta course indicator in the PFD stays frozen in place when the GTN 750 is installed. Will not point to the next waypoint. If I don't install the 750 and just use the G1000, it works ok. Hate using the G1000 on this plane so I use the 750. Is there anyway to fix this problem? Jim

    Carenado 390 Premier IA

    Hi Tres, I previously explained how to start the engines. To open the fuel valves you have to click on the small black tabs (about 1 or 2 inches long) just below the throttle handles. If the throttles are in cutoff, they will move to idle. If they are in idle they will move to cutoff. If you have tool tips on, when you hover the mouse over one of the tabs (or what ever you call them) it will say "level (I think they mean lever) fuel valve right (or left)) open or cut" depending on what position the throttle is in. Hope I have explained this clearly. Jim

    Carenado 390 Premier IA

    The support advice they offered is about the same as what I suggested. What I meant was to designate a plane that came with P3d and make it your default plane which will load automatically when you start the sim. Make sure it starts and runs ok then turn off. Then select the Premier and try to start using the method I said to use previously. What prompted me to post this is that it seemed that you thought "default plane" was the Premier out of the box. Not sure of your experience in P3D so don't mean to insult your intelligence. If you need some guidance on how to do this let me know. Jim

    Hi Gary, Just had another thought. When you start P3D are you starting with one of the default planes? Sometimes not doing so can cause problems. That has caused me problems in the past. Jim

    Yeah, you might go ahead and contact Carenado. Just go to their web page, select Support, Sign in, Submit a Request. Go from there. Good luck. Jim

    Gary, Not familiar with your joystick. OK, verify you are doing this. Below each throttle there is a black lever probably about an inch or two long. If you click on them they will move from cutoff to idle or if they are at idle will move to cutoff. What I do to start is first click on these levers so they will go to cutoff. Then I turn on the ignition switch and ECU switch and push the start button. At about 12% of N2 (at the top of the display) I click on the black lever on which engine I'm trying to start. The throttle will move to idle and the engine starts. That's about all the suggestions I can think of right now. If something else comes to mind I'll let you know. Jim
