    I love flight simulation and have for almost 15 years...Oh, ok, beside that, I make and install vehicle wraps and auto window tinting. I have my own business, I work from my house and have been in business over 10 years.

    Flight plans using Simbrief Question...

    Are you using the SimBrief Downloader to install your flightplans? I've never had a flightplan cut off short and I use SimBrief all the time.

    Hold your tongue!! 😝

    Engine 2 Fail Light

    I noticed that also on my take off. Also Jim (off the subject) do you think that it seems to take too much thrust to get this aircraft moving for taxi, or is it just me? It makes me feel that the tires are low or something.

    Flysimware Falcon 50 Alaska Trip

    Beautiful set of screenshots. I'm just getting comfortable with flying this Falcon too.
  5. I've taken it up several times and I'm thrilled with it. There are very few switches that are not functional and of those, none that are needed. The cockpit textures are not up to today's standards, but they are not that bad either. I'm perfectly satisfied with this purchase. Thank you again QW!
  6. I was using SimStarter for about two weeks, but had some really strange thing happening with my PMDG 747. PMDG support suggested that I not use SimStarter. I quit using it and the problem went away after re-installing the P3Dv4 Client.

    I Give Up! I Can't Start this Falcon 50

    Now that's funny. Anyone flying with me would be saying that all the time. 😊

    Blueprint KLAX V3 Opinions

    Blueprint is known for making scenery that has very good frame-rates and performance, but at the cost of detail. If you have been having problems landing at FSDreamteam's KLAX and found it unusable with your machine, then you might like Blueprint's version. It will be more accurate and better visually than default, but is built for performance, not beauty.

    I Give Up! I Can't Start this Falcon 50

    Wow! I'm going to have to get used to that. Someone on the video must have asked about it too. I heard the captain say "That's the trim". You'd think they could have made a more pleasant / friendly sound for that. Like a chime....ding, ding, ding. I think the MD80 bull-horn trim sound is friendlier 😊 How are you supposed to know if your cockpit is coming apart? "Oh, don't worry. That's just the trim.."

    Is the trim supposed to make that popping sound? That's pretty strange. Sounds like it's coming apart.

    I agree Alan. I also have just about everything that Flysimware makes and there all great, but my favorite has been the Lear and now this Falcon. This thing is pretty wild. 😅

    I Give Up! I Can't Start this Falcon 50

    This Falcon 50 is a lot of fun to fly. I have a lot to learn, but it is quite different and really lots of fun. I'm going to really love this aircraft. I hope the engines keep starting for me too now. I'm afraid to shut it off. That trim has an unusual sound. I heard that pop, pop, pop and thought something was breaking.

    I Give Up! I Can't Start this Falcon 50

    I had tried Ctrl+E and couldn't get it to work. The only way you can tell which way the switches supposed to go is by selecting "Ready to Start". Then they'll flip the right way.

    I Give Up! I Can't Start this Falcon 50

    Ok seems your battery is not dead. For GPU you must turn off all generators and select EXT POWER above the starters. Now shift + 2 click the GPU. That worked! The engines are started. Thank you. I could have sworn that I had been doing just that. I still didn't get the GPU to connect, but I'll worry about that later. I appreciate your help. Thank you, Bob
