    Agreed, it is an awesome GA Aircraft... Hopefully they will sort out the "niggles" in a couple of service packs and they will have imoa their best seller ever!

    FIRST THOUGHTS

    Good suggestion, I have the RA Legacy so will give it a try, I would really like to have flap sounds and cockpit sounds ramped up as well. The engine needs to sound throatier...it currently sounds like a food blender in the cockpit after the initial startup sounds...or maybe the real SR22 sounds that way..I have not flown a real SR22 (yet) so I have no idea of what you would hear with/without your headset on.

    Is there a 3rd party engine sound set available for the SR22? I would really like to try if so...

    FIRST THOUGHTS

    After logging many more hours in Orbx EU Eng I am loving this aircraft, the G1000 are great and if I hit an area effecting my frame rates I simply click top left on the MFD and the FPS jump back up until over the frame intensive area and a quick click and back to my map again and all is well. Learning the G1000 on this has kept me far more interested than I ever imagined, it really is rather comprehensive after looking at users on you tube in the real aircraft. Great price for a great aircraft, 1/2 million $ is just out of my reach so this will do nicely Well done Carenado...

    FIRST THOUGHTS

    Frame rates are spoiling a great plane...any chance of doing a "Lite Version" This is heavier on frames than my NGX, Realair Lanc & anything else in my hanger. Come on Carenado, please find a way of putting a Lite Version option in the SP please...

    Secret Project #1: This one is a classic!

    Like wise...was hoping to get my hands on the DC6 by now, the sreenshots looked like it was a long why down the dvelopment line some months back at the start of this thread....any chance of an update or some more screen shots of her to keep our appetites wetted?

    HI Henning,Great news, many thanks for the "heads up", PMDG-DC-6 will be a big seller for sure!

    Secret Project #1: This one is a classic!

    The DC6 can hold 2,800 US gallons of water/retardent...quite an amount to haul around at low level!Check out the Conair water bomber on you tube..."DC6 Water Tanker 48 fighting the Thunder fire"Awesome video, seemed to take forever to get off the runway and climb with all the liquid weight on board...

    Guys, will you consider being able to do a "water bomber" variant?The DC6 looks really purposeful with that huge pod under its bellyIs there an addon out there to simulate water bombing? that would be a great little app...Apparently they are a real handful to fly with a belly full of water!

    Secret Project #1: This one is a classic!

    Guys, just noticed Just Flight have released a DC6B from Aeroplane Heaven.Although it is a fair representation, It certainly does not look as detailed and polished product as the PMDG version will be. The vc looks pretty poor compared to the PMDG screenies I have seen so far...Typical....you wait ages for a bus then two come along at once! As always...I will be waiting for the PMDG version to be released, I hate making do with second best!

    Don't forget to have a really sweet cargo version with the big cargo door hatch and maybe a fork lift truck for us beer & salmon haulers! to load up with lol :-)

    yep, Everts air cargo has one.Gotta luv their C46 as well, PMDG have got lots of types to go at in this vintage freight/pax market...

    Secret Project #1: This one is a classic!

    love it...will buy it...will buy more vintage props from pmdg without a doughtTalking of Buffalo airways, Why not have a bash at the Lockheed L-188 Electra after this?This sure fills a gap in my hanger for top quality prop freighters to fly into my Orbx Northern region airports with is a great idea!Sub zero start ups with this baby will be awesome to master, plus external freezing and I guess even cockpit internal glass misting and freezing would be cool.bring on the Ice pilot routes! and more from their prop fleet, this would be of interest to us guys who have been following the series for sure.Actually you could send Henning up there to "chill out" in the sub zero conditions whilst studying their hard working fleet lol

    X65F to Hotas Warthog for NGX - Conversion

    Had a yoke but it takes up too much desk space, I much prefer a Joystick and Dual throttle setup,I have toyed with the idea of keeping the X65F throttle and just getting a seperate decent moveable joystick (maybe with force feedback/rumble), but then I have 2 joysticks on my desk, (unless I can split the X65F throttle from the joystick somehow), I need to check that out...Maybe selling the X65F and getting the Hotas Warthog is the best solution in the long run...a shame really because the throttle is great, it even has detents for taxi etc and is a solid metal construction...just the joystick is my issue, I really can't fly well with it...even on small vfr aircraft it just feels so unnatural...

    PMDG 737NGX Livery Availability

    I have done some lessons in one of the pipers with Donair at EGNX but fly a Grumman A5 out of Gamston now, lot quieter airspace! I once had a Ryanair on approach behind me when I was doing one of my first ever landings at EGNX...no pressure!!! Wonder how many of us are meant be doing some work at this stage of the day instead of having a PMDG moment every 5 mins :-)

    PMDG 737NGX Livery Availability

    Yep, they got more than one in that livery, when I got to Dublin there was another exactly the same on the next gate which came as a bit of a suprise!

    PMDG 737NGX Livery Availability

    Hi Steve, thought I would ask you this as you seem to appreciate the Ryanair Livery, are they planning on doing the Comunitat Valenciana Livery? ( I got it on the other NG) I actually flew on the aircraft with that Livery from East Mids to Dublin the other month (so cheap at the moment almost worth doing it for a day out just to get some time in the back of the 738, actually my flight was same price as this NGX software is going to cost!..bargain on both counts!) I stopped to take some pictures of the livery and aircraft close up with my iphone as I the walked to the aircraft and every body following me was looking at me presumably thinking "look at that sado plane spotter!" either way I was chuffed and we had a lovely spine jarring landing at Dublin which has helped my back no end!, gotta stop sitting over the wing in the emergengy exit seats, getting too old for that game now...lol
  22. Hi Guys,I have the same problem, so I tried it on my other pc with office installed on it and bingo it worked first time, problem is its my work pc and not my sim pc!My next step is to get office installed on my sim pc to prove it and get on with flying this thing instead of trying to fix it.I even bought an electronic flight bag with moving map to run with it to get me by!!!
