  1. Hey thanks fellas, wanted to make sure it was on my end and it looks like it was. Seems the small hard drive I have on my client machine was out of space or had very limited space left on it and was the culprit.
  2. So I have an annual Navigraph subscription and here lately I have been having a lot of issues with connectivity and reliability of their desktop chart's application. I frequently hangs when trying to download approach plates for a new destination and often disconnects. Moreover it frequently asks me to re enter my username and password where it hasn't in the past and worse sometimes denies me access after disconnecting for no apparent reason? Wondering if anyone else has been experiencing similar circumstances? It's been happening now for a couple of weeks.
  3. How do I reset the camera so when facing the engineer panel it's centered so that when I move my head forward with Track IR I get a closer look at the engineer panel? Right now because the camera is panned 90 degrees when I move my head forward with Track IR it moves left toward the front of the cockpit because it's not realizing I'm panned 90 degrees which is very unnatural.

    B732 Combi for P3dV4

    Been awhile any updates? Was sort of hoping I missed a release note or something?
  5. Ant's P92 Is hard to beat for a small and slow aircraft, totally worth the cost, http://secure.simmarket.com/ants-airplanes-eaglet-v2-fsx-p3d.phtml
  6. Used the search feature to try not to post a new/duplicate thread, this was the closest I saw so I asked. Thanks for the answer Dan.
  7. Yep, even Orbx has bird sounds you can hear in the cockpit with the cabin secure, but at least you can disable them. Agree that accuracy should take priority over aesthetics.
  8. Didn't know Boise was in the works art Orbx either that;s good news. It's not in the Northwest but Tucson could sure use some love. I really like that you have been working on the regional airports that still have a fair amount of commercial traffic. Keep up the great work!
  9. Okay, I realize I am posting on a dated thread but have a question that is in the same ballpark as this one so rather than start a new I'd like to know the following,,,, When putting a value into the reserve such as 2.0 what is that value representing? I've seen tutorial videos where they say 2 tons, 2000lbs, 2000kg or 2% of total capacity what is it it exactly? Thanks in Advance.
  10. Sick! I'm in at release, really a big fan of your work!
  11. Agree with Joe maybe a duplicate control setting or some other binding causing the issue. Are you using FSUIPC, SPAD, LINDA, or some other mapping utility? If so check them closely and ensure controls in P3d are disabled or if enabled not conflicting. I disable controllers in P3d and run everything via FSUIPC but even so I need to check from time to time that GIT (GoFlight Interface Tool) and event the aircraft I am using doesn't have some sort of conflict although it would be odd to be such a basic/primary control like elevator or elevator trim.

  13. Frank Sorry my reply may have seemed a bit curt. I've used Saitek pedals and twist joysticks before when my Saitek units failed I wanted to replace them with something better but there really was no intermediary between them and very expensive PFC units. That's when I found the MFG units being talked about at some of the air combat forums. They fit my requirements but I was leery about dealing with someone so far away however my purchase experience was exceptional. As far as service/support is concerned the bottom line is so long as Milan doesn't go out of business the MFG pedals should last a lifetime. There are no potentiometers to wear out and the electronics can be swapped out if there is an issue without replacing the physical unit. I did this on my set because I did not like the USB1 cable connector used on the original units and the new software on the replacement card had some advantages. It took little time to realize these pedals are in a completely different class than anything I have previously used and I've had no, zero, zip, zilch, regret or buyer's remorse to this day. To the OP's question, I don't think a set of MFG or higher quality pedals are required to taxi properly so no I would agree with you that it's not necessarily worth the cost if that's the only thing he's trying to improve on but, a good set of pedals will help in taxiing and all aspects of flying especially crosswind landings. The price of purchasing and replacing Saitek and other units will offset the cost difference over time and you'll have a higher quality more precise unit all the while. There is a saying I heard somewhere that, "When you buy the best it only hurts once". I would not call the MFG units 'the best' there are other incredibly precise hydraulically dampened units at huge costs but I would say they likely have the best price/performance/value ratio of any pedals even after you including the shipping.
  14. If you don't have a set or used one you're simply not qualified to make this sort of assessment, it's simply your opinion; mine is that your sadly mistaken.
  15. Another happy MFG Crosswind user, working as well today as they did about four years ago when I got them.
