    Setting Vref

    Hello Bryan, in the next update is it possible to implement an option in config so that the F/O does not set Vref in the FMC during the descent procedure ? (like in the 747). Stephane

    Bank angle

    Hi Bryan, for the course call I will try on my next flight. Tuning NAV1 or NAV2 works like with the 737.
  3. Hello, is there a voice command to ask the F/O to set : - bank angle to 15° or 25° or 30 ° ? - VOR Course on my side or on his side ? Stéphane
  4. Hello, slats word is not recognized by voice control. Each time I say Slats Retract or Slats extend, the system understand Flaps Retract or flaps extend. Is there a workaround for that ? Both words SLATS and FLAPS sounds similar. Stephane
  5. Hello Bryan, only when pressing "P". Just tried once, because I didn't want to ruin another flight wihtout voice command ...!!! Pressing "P" seems to also pause FS2Crew PreflightEvents, then when unpausing PF Events are going on but without voice control possibility from me. Stéphane
  6. Hello, I don't know if it's an issue or not. After starting the PF events from a cold and dark situation, if I pause the sim with key 'P', when I unpause, all voices commands do not work anymore. I can see what I speak in the green bar but it seems that the F/O has suddenly become deaf. All other voice script are playing normally, for example, the F/O asks if he can turn on the APU but of course I am not able to answer. How can I recover the voice control ?

    CTD upon touchdown

    Hello, I am not part of the testers (sorry I don't have any spare time to participate), but I would like to report another CTD tonight while backtracking the runway 30 at SBTT for takeoff. The before takeoff checklist was made. I was taxiing at idle thrust since brakes release from the ramp (medium stand). Once on the runway, I have pushed my X52 throttle forward to increase my taxi speed, then at 18 kt groudspeed I have pulled the throttle back to idle then here goes the CTD with the API.dll stuff in the window 10 events log. So for now, the aircraft is grounded in the hangar for me until a solution is found. Stephane

    CTD upon touchdown

    I just had a CTD a few minutes ago when beginning to taxi at my departure airport SBEG. FTX Vectors was not reinstalled yet, so it's not the cause. It may be related to P3D directly ? For the time being, all CTDs have occured with the PMDG DC6. I need to try with the 747, the 777, and the 737 to check if it's happening again. Here below a copy of messages in win10 log (in french). Maybe a specialist can decode all this stuff better than me. Stéphane LI-THIAOTE

    Crashing P3D V4 on touchdown

    I also had this CTD on landing with the DC6 on 2 or 3 flights. I would like to know if people who are having this CTD are also using FTX Vector ? Because last night I uninstalled Vector and made a complete flight until parking at destination without the CTD. I have noticed that the CTD began to occur since I installed Vector. I would like to be sure if it was Vector who was responsible for the CTD on landing. In the event log of WIN10 I saw an error about API.DLL. Stéphane LI-THIAO-TE

    Missing Files?

    Hello Kyle, maybe could you upload the missing files in avsim library or somewhere else (on PMDG website perhaps like the liveries for XPX) for those who need them ? This way we could avoid people asking the same question again and again. Stéphane LI-THIAO-TE

    DC-6 for P3Dv4 Question and Issues

    I was going to ask the same question (P3Dv4). Stéphane LI-THIAO-TE
  14. Ryan, if you still have some num keys available, then create a custom view (CTRL+num key) with your instruments zoomed in. Go to your external view, then hit the chosen num key to get back to your instruments. Stéphane

    RNAV and vertical navigation

    Hello Richard, An RNAV approach is an NPA (non precision approach) like a localizer/glideslope out app, or a vor app or an ndb app. The difference is that you don't rely on radionavigation aids to follow your track. You can't do an autoland when performing an NPA, A/P must be disconnected at MDA/DA -50 ft the latest. The preferential mode for lateral navigation in an RNAV approach is LNAV. For the vertical navigation, you have multiple choice : doing it the old way with V/S, or using VNAV. 1) V/S : set your MCP altitude at MDA+50 ft. At the FAF or the final descent point, indicated on the vertical profile of the approach chart, set your V/S to a calculated value depending on your ground speed (may also be indicated on the charts), generally -700/800 ft/min. Adjust your rate of descent with the green arc on the ND. When at least at 300 ft below the missed approach altitude, reset the MCP altitude to the missed approach altitude. When visual with the runway, A/P off and land manually. 2) Using VNAV : different minima exist depending on the authorization delivered by the Civil Aviation Authority of your country. You may be authorized for an RNAV with LNAV only(a), or you may be authorized for RNAV with LNAV/VNAV( b ) (also named APV, Approach with Vertical guidance). Even if you are authorized for RNAV LNAV only, you can use VNAV for the approach but with higher minima. (a) LNAV only : When approaching the FAF, assuming that your MCP altitude is set to the level altitude depucted on the chart, engage LNAV and VNAV, and check that the FMA indicates LNAV, VNAV PTH. Set the minimums to baro, and MDA + 50 ft. Set your MCP altitude to MDA + 50 ft in the 737 (rounded) or to the minima value in the 777. When intercepting the descent path, VNAV will do its job and the aircraft will start to descent on the calculated profile. At 300 ft below missed approach altitude, reset MCP altitude. Disconnect A/P when visual but no later than MDA-50 ft, or go around. ( b ) LNAV/VNAV is almost the same at (a) above except that the minimums (on the EFIS control panel) is set to the DA value indicated on the approach chart. Stephane
