  1. Pathfinder, https://return.mistymoorings.com/ Bush flying is largely about solitude. I get it. I'm not a fan of people talking to me while I'm trying to make a short field landing, either. There's a community of sim pilots at RTMM who appreciate that kind of flying. The bulk of the staff's effort is on flight planning and scenery creation. The forum is about helping each other enjoy the sim. I invite you to check it out.

  3. All true, although one could argue that backcountry flying is risky enough to justify the cost and extra weight of a set of suitably larger ones that will help avoid bending a gear strut when you hit a rock on an unimproved landing area. As for what's representative of the airplanes out there, a quick tally of one dealer's inventory shows one A-1C with Wipline 2100 floats, one with 35" tires, three with 31" tires, twenty-two with 29" tires, and four with 26" tires. Take from that what you will. 😉
  4. I would hope so. The Husky has a well-earned reputation as a STOL workhorse. I'd hope that Asobo would give us something that represents that: 26" tires, 31" or 35" tires, a cargo pod, and a model with floats. (If they don't, I hope they'll at least not encrypt it all so the community can do it.)
  5. Who put those tiny little tires on it? This is a backcountry flyer, it needs 26" tires at a minimum! Blasphemy! Blasphemy, I say!
  6. The link on the G3X page to the pitot.md page doesn't work.

  8. I did that flying solo in a C152. Departing out of the old Glenview Naval Air Station behind a USMC C-130, the tower had me wait for any wake turbulence and cleared me to take off. On climbout, I started getting hammered...I had one of those old Sporty's folding kneeboards that didn't strap on and at one point, I grabbed it out of the air and jammed it into the passenger seat pocket. I returned to the pattern and landed, and as required by the Navy Flying Club, went to the weather shack to make my PIREP. The weatherguesser shrugged and said, "Yeah, the guy departing before you reported heavy chop on their way out." Me: "And what was he flying?" Her: "A C-130." Me: "And what was I flying?" Her: "A Cessna 152?" Me: Her: Me: "And did he make the call on UHF?" Her: "Yeah." Me: "How would I have heard it?" Her: Me: Her: "I guess I should have relayed it on VHF."
  9. Restart the XBox Companion app and log in there. This has now happened to me twice.
  10. I had MSFS 1.14.5 running this morning. I closed it to make a change to a livery in the Community folder and it no longer starts. It gets to the screen showing the 300 Extra (2 Landing Challenges) and the Bonanza (1 Iconic Flight) and stops with the progress bar at about 80%. The Event Viewer (Windows Logs > Security) shows a number of audit failures indicating a firewall issue ("Windows Firewall was unable to notify the user that it blocked an application from accepting incoming connections on the network.") The process indicated is LSASS.exe. If I disable the private network firewall, the audit failures don't occur, but MSFS still doesn't start. Has anyone seen anything like this?
  11. Carl, I had a similar issue with the Seminole. I deleted the PA44 folder from the OneStore folder, then was able to re-download via the Content Manager. That solved my HSI issue along with all the other things on the fix list. It looks to me like there's an issue with the updated not properly overwriting the files on the hard drive. Aand it looks like that answer has already been given. Sorry for the dupe!
  12. FLC sets your climb airspeed. VS sets your rate of climb feet per minute. MSFS seems to be slow to respond to FLC, so it tends to hunt for the airspeed. Best to make or change the setting slowly when you're in the air, and when enabling, it's best to be fairly close to your desired airspeed.
