  1. Think Kyle is bang on - it's that slightly out of sync sound I can hear there. Two hums together? Cheers,
  2. Because that's a perfectly reasonable use of an autopilot. No need to ask that at all. Cheers, Rudy
  3. Also, try cycling the "Q" key - sound on/off. Cheers,
  4. Dan is right re using the Minimum Fuel option. Avoid the minimum cost option as it can give funny figures and I doubt any of us have any information to plug into that feature that makes it worthwhile using. Cheers,
  5. Hi chaps, For the 747-400 RR PAX and the RB211-524GH2 profile that comes with PFPX After doing 12 bias calculations with PFPX at various weights on a number of flights, I have the following corrections to provide arriving at destination within +/ 500kg fuel remaining from planned and +/ 5 minutes of estimated time. This is with Cost Index 100 - I haven't tried other CIs as yet. Fuel Bias: -5.2% Drag Factor: 1.0% Cheers, Rudy
  6. Ryan, what processor did you upgrade from? Cheers, Rudy
  7. Excellent work! Thanks for keeping us in the loop with your findings. Cheers,
  8. I think that's what he was asking pal.
  9. Qantas options in Excel spreadsheet in link below. Not all options might be currently up-to-date, and may be changed in the future. Options for four 744 types operating (older RR VH-OJM, newer RR VH-OJU, GE VH-OEB, ER VH-OEJ). https://www.dropbox.com/s/ajiu7ra6mjrw927/Qantas%20Boeing%20747-400%20Airframe%20Options%20List%20Rev%201.xls?dl=0
  10. PFPX is an amazing program. It is very customiseable, relatively easy to use (the manual is pretty poor though - but lots of knowledgeable users on the forum). A must-have add-on for me. Lots of OFP formats available to help make your plan look like the airline's that your simulating. Cheers,
  11. Brian, For the ER, this guy has made a 744ER data file for PFPX. I haven't used it yet, so can't vouch for its accuracy. I think Dan Downs said he used these profiles during beta testing. http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/files/file/3514-pfpx-boeing-747-400-performance-profiles-pack/ Cheers,
  12. Hi, Thought I'd give this a bump - got buried VERY quickly! PS 'll be happy to share them once I've finished them, Jon. They're nothing special - have just found max weights etc. and done a quick fuel bias analysis. Cheers,
  13. Hi PMDG, I am so excited to have this bird! Haven't done much with her yet apart from set up cameras, PFPX, options etc. Looking around the VC - stunning detail!! Sounds amazing. I love that there is also an automatic FUEL/TANK ENG too! I cannot wait to take her for a spin. Of course you release before I have two very long shifts and a wedding to go to first. Maybe I can get out of the wedding? Anwyay - the question is - are you planning on releasing the FCTM with this bird as well, or is there a reason it is not included? Cheers, An excited Rudy
  14. Hi. Check the options. There is an option for FMC calculated V speeds
  15. Not one of you appalling simmers has mentioned the only plane PMDG should consider modelling: the L1011! :wink: Cheers,
