  1. Hi all, Does anyone know where I can download the above AI repaint? Looked in the library here and a few other places, but no luck. Thanks in advance. J.C.

    Feelthere Ejets and DME Arcs

    It would seem so I guess. I'm hoping that there is a solution to get the FMS to perform as advertised though. Other than this snafu, everything else works like a dream, so if I can find a solution to this issue, it would be great, since presently, I do it the old fashioned way, which is not how a modern FMS equipped aircraft is designed to work, all things considered.

    Feelthere Ejets and DME Arcs

    Hi Duran, Most of the procedures that I fly which include DME arcs already have quite a few waypoints between the entry and exit points, so not sure if adding additional waypoints will make a difference. Additionally, an arc is not even displayed on the MFD; the waypoints of the arc are displayed point to point in a straight line. J.C.

    Feelthere Ejets and DME Arcs

    Hi DJ Below is an excerpt as advertised for the features of the Ejets on their page: FMS Features (Flight Management System) Ultra realistic and very complete dual FMS with Vertical Glide Path Mode and Coupled LNAV / VNAV Learn function : the FMS learns your flying habits for more accurate flight predictions Five different patterns simulated including HOLD, PROCEDURE TURN,... SID/STAR with DME arc,... Based on the above, I'd like to believe that DME arcs are simulated,no? Thanks, J.C.
  5. Hi all, I've been using the Feelthere Ejet series for awhile now, and for the most part, things work as advertised. I do have one issue, though, and that is getting the aircraft to fly a star/approach with a DME arc. I've ensured that the FMS is set up correctly with the published star/approach that includes a DME arc (quite common in the Caribbean where I do most of my flights) and I'm pretty sure that it's not a programming issue. For the record, every other procedure that I program into the Feelthere FMS works without a hitch (including Rnav procedures). In all instances where I've programmed a procedure with a DME arc, I've had to follow the arc manually in "heading" mode since LNAV won't follow the procedure, even though the FMS is set up correctly. I'm using the ejet version 2, FS9.1, and windows 7 64-bit. I've checked and doubled checked the manual to make sure I'm not missing anything, I've asked for help on their support forum awhile back, but didn't really get a satisfactory answer or suggestion for a fix. Any suggestions for this issue will be greatly appreciated, since I'd like to believe that LNAV should be able to follow a DME arc once entered correctly into the FMS as a part of a procedure. Thanks in advance, J.C.
  6. Hi all, This is my first purchase and install of the Nvidia brand of video cards (Radeon/AMD since starting the hobby 13 years ago). Installed the above card and so far, performance-wise the card is pretty fast and stable (frames locked at 45 and holds steady for the most part). However, I've tried a few different settings for antialiasing, etc, but can't seem to correct what seems to be an excessive amount of shimmering around the airport scenery and ai planes (using FS9.1 by the way). The ground textures and autogen seem to be ok. I'm using the stock Nvidia Control Panel to make my adjustments (antialiasing is turned off in the sim). My system specs are: Alienware Aurora R2, Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit (service pack 1), Intel i5 CPU 760 @2.8 gHz, 8gb Ram, and using FS9.1. Are there preferred settings that can maybe improve the amount of shimmering in the airport scenery (the latest video card drivers are installed). Thanks in advance for any assistance. J.C.
  7. Hello, Can you email me a copy of that texture please (jclarke1974@hotmail.com). I purchased Version 2 a few weeks back from simmarket (also downloaded the available repaints from FeelThere Website), but no US Airways repaint. Thanks J.C.
  8. Hello, I've searched the library looking for the above-captioned repaint but to no avail. The Mcphat repaints on the feelThere website don't have the US Airways E190 livery either. Does anyone know where I can find a repaint, or if someone is willing to share one that they repainted, please let me know. Thanks. J.C.
  9. Hello, I've had this bird for a few years, and not flown it for awhile. Decided to take it for a quick spin, and adjusted the load with paxloader utility before starting flight sim. The cg with the paxloader facility was dead center, but after starting flight sim and clicking on fuel and payload to adjust the fuel, I noticed that the cg position was way north of center (outside the limits). Adjusted the fuel and payload within flight sim, but the cg indicator seems to be stuck (not moving with any variations with the loading). Tried all sorts of loading configurations, but no luck. Can anyone shed any ideas regarding fixing the cg position, maybe somewhere in the aircraft cfg file perhaps. Obviously, the aircraft won't fly properly with the cg out of limits, so any help would be appreciated. J.C.
  10. Hi all, Just wondering if the above is achievable, and if so, how? This would be another great way to reduce the pile-ups, especially at busy airports. I already use AI Smooth and AI Separator, which have greatly reduced the go-arounds. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Regards, J.C.
  11. Good Day, I sent an email to imaginesim's support email address requesting some assistance a few days ago, but have yet to receive a reply. If anyone here from Imaginesim reads this post, can you please send me a PM or email me at jclarke@coralwave.com so that I can detail the nature of the assistance requested. Thanks J.C.(MYNN)

    No checkride for me tomorrow :(

    Hi there, Best of luck on your checkride. I've been through three checkrides already (Pvt, multi, instrument) and I think that the private was probably the most challenging. The PPL also gave me the greatest sense of accomplishment too. I know that you have probably heard this already, but consider your PPL a license to learn. J.C.(MYNN)PPL ASEL,AMEL,Instrument Airplane
