  1. Kyle and the PMDG team - If you are surprised or disappointed by the overall negative reaction in the community, then you're missing the compliment for your aircraft work. Of COURSE everyone wanted a CS1000 or E-Jets, or a Gulfstream (my bet in Vegas). Your aircraft are second to none and the announcement and release of them are major event in the industry. Speculation went as far as PMDG picking up the consumer license for FSW which would have been big and for almost everyone. To many of us, GSO..Corrected - GFO was like getting a sweater for Christmas. The person giving it thought it was great; the person receiving it ... well - it depends if they wanted a sweater. It doesn't mean sweaters aren't really nice and useful, but getting a big wheel would have been better. Some people know how to bite their lip and say thanks and others will come right out and say "I didn't want a sweater". Some will even say it has fleas and causes rashes even when it doesn't. Don't blame the community for being disappointed and vocal about it. It's all a compliment to the good work you do on airplanes. The foot stomping and temper tantrums will die out in a few days.

    Beacon lights key command

    For anyone following this or finds the topic in search, PMDG responded to the ticket and the issue is documented. Dan/Marc/Kevin .. appreciate the help. BD

    Beacon lights key command

    Marc -if the keybinding was in place for the upper/lower beacon - it would be a lot faster than scrolling up to the overhead and getting my mouse over the three-way switch. And that's not the point anyway. If you go in the PMDG Options / Key Commands / External Lights - you'll see it exists for the lower beacons only. t's possible the OP put a ticket in. It's possible PMDG may have it on their list of fixes. I'm following up because it is important to me. It's a small little annoyance and I'm curious if PMDG captured this and plans to address it - or a fresh ticket is needed. ???? so then strobe is a waste, landing gear is a waste, elapsed time is waste, TOGA is a waste? We shouldn't have keyboard bindings for these? What's the right amount of clicks during a flight to merit a keybinding or hardware switch? 3? 4?

    Beacon lights key command

    Did I submit a ticket? Back to the question - is it logged already and on the radar screen for a fix or do I need to enter a ticket? Thanks.... BD

    Beacon lights key command

    I'd like to bump this topic since it's been about a year and it's the only post I've found. The PMDG Options / Key Commands / Beacon still only toggles from OFF to LOWER. There's no option to move the switch down to BOTH with a key binding. Is this issue logged - does it need a ticket - or any comment on mapping a key press to get the beacon switch int he down/both position? Thx...

    Introducing New Lufthansa Cargo Livery

    The livery looks fantastic in P3D v4. Thanks for rolling this out.
  8. Understood. Thanks. Sounds like PMDG just needs to push a new set of profiles at some point and overwrite the old.
  9. Good question. The bandage fix by loading default panel state then customizing is one thing and won't be hard to follow, but once this is done - does it clear the bug and we can load long turn, short turn and the rest w/out this yellow light?
  10. Hi: Press the H key for carb heat. P3D /FSX can't tell between carburated and injected engines. As soon as you press H, the engine will jump back to life.
  11. Same. I jumped the gun on the purchase. These guys are on top of their stuff though. I'm not too worried about the Q400 catching up.
  12. I have the same exact problem. It all spools down, then starts back up. However - I'm also having the same issue in the TFDi 717 ... (less the successful and immediate restart of the systems) https://prnt.sc/gyqiez Kyle - you may have nailed the issue .. in part. After flying a Cessna 206, I saw the mixture knob go out to lean cutoff for no reason whatsoever. I checked all my axis mapping in P3D and FSUIPC and can say for sure my Yoke, pedals, TQ6 throttles don't have any mappings to mixture. So it doesn't seem to be a conflicting axis, but it's certainly caused by the mixture being cutoff. I'll keep digging. Hey Jason - do we have any hardware in common? Saitek Yoke, AV8R Joystick, Saitek Pedals, TQ6ADV Throttle, VRinsight overhead?
  13. Anyone know of another source for the change logs? I did the update, but now I'm interested in what was fixed.

    P3D v4.1 Released

    Everything good on my end with 4.1. Reinstalled client, content, and scenery one at a time by uninstalling and installing. Tested the NG, 744, and 777. All smooth. Looking forward to rain effects on the windscreen one day.
