  1. Resource starvation maybe? You should monitor your cpu, ram and gpu usage during the entire flight to see what 's happening.
  2. I see. Thanks guys. Its really clear now.
  3. Interesting. I was just reading the FAA rules regarding supplemental oxygen and i found this: 91.211 Supplemental oxygen. No person may operate a civil aircraft of U.S. registry t cabin pressure altitudes above 12,500 feet (MSL) up to and including 14,000 feet (MSL) unless the required minimum flight crew is provided with and uses supplemental oxygen for that part of the flight at those altitudes that is of more than 30 minutes duration Does that means it is ok to cruise in the Duke at FL280 without oxygen masks as long as the cabin altitude doesnt reach 12,500? I will stick to FL250 anyway but im curious to know if you can do this legally in a real duke. @dbw1 how did you feel physically in that king air at that cabin altitude?
  4. Morning guys! I saw that the turbine duke as a service ceiling altitude of 28,000 but if you climb to that altitude the pressurization system cant keep the cabin altitude below 10,000. It only manages to keep the cabin at 11,000 or so and the aircraft displays a red warning. So what's the point? Why do you have a service ceiling of 28,000 if your pressurization system cant coupe? I guess its worst on the piston duke. Its service ceiling is 30,000 so i guess its cabin altitude must be 12,000 or so. Do duke pilots climb to 28,000 anyway and ignore the red warning? Or they try to stay below 10,000 cabin altitude?
  5. Read the 2.0 release announcement post. the answer you're looking for is a few posts after the announcement.
  6. Then that must be my problem. I use idle power. I even have to push the gear button to silence the gear horn. That must be it. thanks!
  7. @downscc What's the problem with the props turning the engines? Isn't that the same as a car going downhill in low gear?
  8. Thanks Dan. I usually fly at FL200 because that's what pfpx tells me to do when i do my flight plans. Maybe that's killing them prematurely Thanks
  9. Hi guys! Im wondering, how long should the engines last in green before going yellow? I can manage to get like 10 hours or so (not in continuous operation but in multiple flights) and after that they start to get yellow. Is that ok or im mismanaging them? (This is all manual, without AFE). Also, lets say im climbing to FL200. At what point should i switch to auto lean mixture? Right now i leave the mixture at auto rich until i real cruise altitude and then switch to auto lean. Is that how it should be done? Thanks!
  10. I see. Thanks! Btw i think there's a bug with the pressurization system. If you set the rate controller all the way to DECR while youre at say FL450 the cabin altitude will reach sea level if you wait a few minutes. I dont know for sure if that's a bug but it looks strange
  11. That right there its my issue. the gtn gauges look bright just as in your screenshot
  12. The bezels around the gtn screen look totally bright at night if i have the flood lights off.
  13. I still have the brigness issue at night with the GTN750/650 2D gauge
  14. Hi guys! It has happened twice to me that if i save a flight with the engines in green, when i reload the flight they reload in yellow. If then i save the flight, close the sim, reopen the sim and reload the flight they now load in orange. Is this happening to more people or is just me?
