  1. This is the pot on a saitek throttle, as you can see it is open, just stick the long nozzle on your electrical cleaner down the side of the lever and spray whilst moving the throttle. No disassembly needed. It's easy but maybe the others did not understand what they were doing ?
  2. The Pots are open, they are miniature trim pots, spraying them with contact cleaner with a long nozzle works perfectly Done mine many times.
  3. The bit about "step away from the business of supporting it" made me LOL, there has only really been Ray and a couple of others here that have supported it over the last few years. It would be nice if the released the source code for V5 and let someone finish it though.

    Train Simming

    These days all I play is Elite Dangerous, my Goflight stuff and all my Controls are sitting in the loft. I just got burned out with FSX/P3D and the relative lack of progress in the hobby over the years... Oh and the cost, I really don't miss the constant purchasing of addons, I feel sick when I think how much I have wasted over the years on FS9, FSX, P3D and chasing hardware.

  6. Not surprised really , Realair were always a class above.
  7. Try Oolite, true to the spirit of the original Elite. http://www.oolite.org/starting/
  8. Jose nails it, I would love to transition to Xplane because it is really looking great. But there is too much missing at this point that I need in a simulator, The weather system is poor, Vatsim client is ancient, ATC is poor, Ai is miles behind the packages available for P3D, Only a handful of really great aircraft addons available, the list of missing or poorly implemented features is massive. P3D may not look as good but it has a much more complete ecosystem available.
  9. Search google for "High Definition Environment v2.1 FSX & P3D" HDEv2.0.zip
  10. Fscommander does not really work well like this, I find it is best run on a networked PC via WideFS. Seeing as you have bought WideFS you must also have a networked machine available, yes ?, any old laptop will do the job just fine.
  11. Which twin otter ? If the addon uses the default auto pilot code it will work, if not you will need to use lua scripts, Fsuipc or the Goflight Interface tool from pollypot software. https://www.pollypotsoftware.org.uk/ Not sure that a Boeing 737 MCP is the best choice for a twin otter though.
  12. Biggest benefit comes when you change aircraft and your controls are automatically configured for you. Fsuipc's Profiles function is worth the price alone
  13. But product X has never been fitted to a real world air frame, so at that point what exactly are you simulating ?
  14. And what happens to the rest of the waypoints after the one you dir-to ? unless i am doing something wrong, whenever I do a dir-to I lose all of the the remaining waypoints in my plan.
