  1. Sorted. Pls ignore.
  2. Hi, Today I finally ditched EZCA2 and bought Chaseplane, however I cannot set the hat switch on my joystick (T16000M) to tilt or pan in CP preferences, and I cannot tilt/pan - full stop. I don't seem to be able to post a screenshot. I'm running P3D 4.4 on a Win 10 build 1809 PC. I uninstalled EZCA before installing, and noted that during the CP install, it detected some vestigial remnants of EZCA and (presumably) deleted them. If I try to set the hat switch to tilt or pan, when I move the switch, CP does not detect it. I can set any other axis to tilt or pan, but not the hat switch. This happens whether I have the View (Pan) set to "Hatch switch 1" in P3D settings or not, and also whether I've got the input set to Raw or DirectInput. I note that someone else found that they had to move their joystick (saitek) before moving the hat to set it, but if I do that, it just sets the joystick X or Y axis as the tilt/pan... I don't have any joystick assignments set in FSUIPC, either. Weirdly, if I use named assignments, CP recognises my hat switch, but not the named assignment: ie, if I input "tilt up" the dialog says "affecting 0 presets"... Any ideas? I've searched the forum and elsewhere with no luck. thanks, jeff
  3. Me neither. I've tried creating one in pfpx and exporting it, but it seems it has to be done manually. Jeff

    Vhhh "no Autoland"

    No, they're not required. You just won't get the correct call-out re minimums. I can't understand what the problem could have been re VHHH 25R. Taking a punt, can I enquire about your navdata? I haven't got the -300, but did you get a navdata update with it? cheers jeff hunter
  5. I'm sure he meant indicated airspeed. True airspeed of 299 at FL300 would mean an IAS of about 188, which is very slow. Using the most recent example from flightaware - which cruised at FL400 - 0.78 mach would result in a TAS of 447 kts, and a touch under 250 indicated (assuming a std atmosphere). jeff h.

    where are the load editor and fuel planner

    I struggled with the virtual cockpit when I first got the NGX, but then I discovered the EZ-Dok camera aka "EZCA", which enables you to set up a series of different VC views that you access simply by hitting a specific key eg, Capt/FO, FMC, radios, lower/upper overhead panel, engine start, MCP, etc It makes life much easier, and is well worth it. You won't miss the 2d panel. cheers, Jeff Hunter

    EZCA File for 777

    Thanks also. Moving the view forwards solves the problem, but ezca won't let me save the new view, it just defaults to the original one. If I try to save it as a new view, as soon as I click in a blank slot, the view jumps to behind my left shoulder, if you get what I mean. Also, I move the view using the arrow keys, but a single press moves things a lot. Is there a key-stroke combination that allows for smaller increments? thx jeff

    EZCA File for 777

    I used the profile posted above, but when using the default left seat view, I cannot click any of the buttons. Changing the view to other areas of the cockpit is fine.. Has me bamboozled.

    SE Alaska RNP/RNAV Procedrues

    Looking at the Juneau chart attached to the Naverus document supplied by Fabrizio (thanks!), I see that the FAA requirements concerning wind refer to "gusts not controlling"? What does "gusts not controlling" mean? cheers,

    NGX bird strike question

    They are pretty common in my part of the world. YBBN averages 80 bird/flying fox strikes every year, One of the problems is that the birds that get in the way tend to be large: eg pelicans, ibis. A pelican could really ruin your whole day.
  11. Rwy 22 @ YLRE is 1936m or about 6300 feet. Even so, they did it without reverse thrust on 1 and 4 because of the narrow runway and the risk of fodding the engines - not sure exactly why it would matter, given that it wasn't going anywhere again. ;-)These days the engines have perspex covers on to keep out nesting birds!There is a good video of the most recent addition to the Qantas founders museum at Longreach - a 707 doing a couple of passes, including a missed approach before landing. It would have made some serious noise. regards,Jeff YBBN
  12. It is possible to give misleading or deceptive information by way of omission. The product descriptions are apt to mislead because they obfuscate the issue of FSX compatibility rather than plainly saying that the cockpit will only work under FS9.I've never been ripped of by Ariane or Tishma, and have no axe to grind, but conduct like that which has been identified by Simba needs to be jumped on, and hard. If the vendor's place of business was able to be easily discerned, and if this wasn't a small and fairly boutique market, any govt consumer protection authority would hammer them.People pay prices like 43 euro because they want a complex simulation. Is it seriously suggested that people would pay that price if they really knew that all they were getting was an exterior model that would have to be flown using the default MS 737 cockpit??Jeff
  13. Well, it's not in my Macquarie Australian Dictionary, but a quick google search tells me that the two words I had in mind would seem to fit the definition. ;-)regards,Jeff
  14. It doesn't seem all that long ago that these (and, i think other) forums automatically blocked the use of the word Tishma, putting him in the same category as two words that spring to mind: an obscene gerund and an anatomically descriptive noun.http://www.avsim.com/pages/0902/pt_again.htmlSorry you did your dough, mate. You should try your credit card company, as they sometimes will do a refund where you have been dudded. I guess they want to encourage online shopping. A colleague recently bought some perfume online, and when it didn't arrive as promised, Mastercard refunded her.regards,Jeff

    Need Help: Circle to Land App

    I've probably come in too late, but:"A circling approach is a visual flight manouvre...there can be no single procedure designed that will cater for the conduct of a circling approach in every situation. After initial visual contact, the basic assumption is that the runway [note, NOT the airport] environment (ie the runway threshold, or approach lighting aids or other markings identifiable with the runway)will be kept in sight whilst at MDA for circling": AIP (Aust) ENR 1.5More details about the size of the circling area (depends on a/c category) and associated procedures are at http://www.airservicesaustralia.com/public...enr/1_5_1-5.pdfI suspect that our AIP conforms to the ICAO standardregards,Jeff
