  1. I agree with Wamill77....These sounds are very good as is the entire aircraft. Seeing how nice MilViz has made this aircraft maybe they could consider a Cessna 421 next...... Dave
  2. I’ll have more of a listen at low power settings as well...you may have heard things I missed. I think they’re pretty darn close though. For me I’m happy with them. Dave
  3. I flew an 310r for approx 1500 hrs Doug forest fire suppression and I think they nailed the sounds right on. A lot of the sound is from engine rpm and so when the mp is decreased from take off to climb power (25”/2500rpm) the noise level will decrease with rpm reduction and again to cruise power 23”/2300rpm. When you bring up the power for takeoff the sounds to me are right on.....it really adds to the enjoyment of this MilViz 310r. This is now my favourite piston twin in P3d.
  4. 310 Redux Autopilot

    Thanks Martin. Cheers. Dave
  5. 310 Redux Autopilot

    I am following this but maybe I am showing my age and missing something else... LOL.... MASTER AUTOPILOT POWER The autopilot is powered when the avionics master switch is turned on. However, the functionality of the autopilot is now engaged until the pilot toggles the “AP” button on the lower-left side of the unit. To disengage the autopilot’s functions, the pilot toggles the AP button a second time (Note: the pilot will hear a warning tone any time the autopilot is toggled off deliberately or if autopilot functionality is deemed unreliable.
  6. 310 Redux Autopilot

    Thanks. I've got about 1500 hours in the real world R and am familiar with the Cessna autopilot (junk) and the S-Tek 55 (great) but I will have another read. Many thanks for the response. Really nice creation of the 310. Dave
  7. Anyone having a problem with the autopilot? Mine seems to work only intermittently. Otherwise this is another nice Milviz aircraft. Dave
  8. New 310R from Milviz

    All the above aside I am looking forward to the new C310. I put 1500hrs in the R model on fire suppression with the 285hp engines and it is a very nice 310 to fly. Maneuverability is very very good....great for formation with a tanker. Reliable as hell. I'm hoping everything works well on the new one such as mixtures/fuel flow, electrical indications, autopilot etc. Dave
  9. Any 737-200 combi for P3dV4

    With the fms gone is there any method of long range nav included or is it vor to vor etc? I had this a long time ago and really enjoyed it. Have misplaced it and can't remember where I bought it but it's such a good aircraft I'll repurchase when it's unbugged. Dave
  10. BE-350

    This is not a request for a timeline on how you're doing on this creation..... You did mention about the analogue cockpit version you were including for early supporters such as myself...Will it have the Sperry attitude and HSI indicators?. I flew a 200 many years ago with that set up and really enjoyed it. The HSI precessed less than a degree an hour which was useful when arctic flying...I flew it on medivacs up there. I'm looking forward to this aircraft when it's ready. Dave
  11. Viet Nam, Cambodia, Laos

    A340Bangla....Thanks for the info. I'll look into this. I'd like to spend some time flight simming this area including Thailand. If I can find some interesting scenery i will. VTBU...I'd forgotten what the ident was for. Just looked it up on Foreflight...U-tapao. I flew out of there for a short period many years ago. Spent a few weeks in Pattaya at the same time. I've often wondered what it would be like to spend our Canadian winters there..... Dave
  12. Viet Nam, Cambodia, Laos

    Hi. Thanks for the reply. Who is A_A? It would be interesting to get some sceneries for this area and go explore. If you get some running in 4.2 perhaps you would give me a heads up. I flew rotary in that neck of the woods a long time ago. All the best, Dave
  13. Are there any good sceneries of any type for this area? I'm using P3dV4.2. Thanks. Dave
  14. Aerosoft CRJ current status?

    Actually I have been pretty happy with this aircraft....have yet to explore VNAV but LNAV is fine for me. Dave
  15. Update for C90B HD P3D4

    Hi Bert, What I do for the auto pilot here in P3d is pull up the 2D panel of it, make it smaller and move it to the lower left part of the screen. Works for me. I have a real soft spot for the 90 as until my retirement in 2016 I flew it for the last 6 years of my career when I could get out of the office and needed to go somewhere. Actually the Carenado is an okay replication of it. As to GPS placement I flew the Saab340 for a few years in the 1990s that had the GPS in the same position as this Carenado 90. It wasn't convenient but in those days we only had approval for enroute (not approaches) so it was okay. You get used to it. Dave
