  1. I have all my controllers running through FSUIPC7> have done this because I just could not figure out how to use the complicated (to me) SETTINGS in the sim under the CONTROLLERS tab. Since there is no button in the sim to select "DISABLE CONTROLLERS" like there is in FSX and P3D, you must add an additional PROFILE for each controller and leave them blank. Do not assign anything to them. I call them YOKE FSUIPC, etc. Make sure that those PROFLES are selected and then setup a flight, and then you can go to THE addons TAB AT THE TOP AND your FSUIPC and setup your controllers there The advantage of this is that you can make each FSUIPC setting for a specific airplane by ticking the box SPECIFIC AIRCRAFT. Thus you can have a setup just for the DC-3 and one for say the F-16 and they are all different settings contained within to complement each aircraft. Every time you fly that airplane, the settings for it are engaged automatically. You can do the same thing in the sim, but it is much more complicated and time consuming and you would have to make sure you have selected the proper PROFILE for the plane you want to use for each controller. Now you can also create a PROFILE for any plane in the sim for each controller and select those PROFLIES for that plane to see if you can get a better result using the sim settings rather than the FSUIPC settings. There is a lot of flexibility here, but you have to remember to select those PROFILES for that particular plane when you start the sim. So, that is why I se FSUIPC for my controllers as I could not figure out how to use the assorted bunch of adjustable settings in the sim. HOWEVER, there is now a video on YouTube that finally explains how to use them in the sim. I think it will be a big help to watch it and then decide what you want to do.

  2. Yes, I tried both Legacy and Modern. On Legacy the takeoff run was much smoother, but once in the air, the plane was almost uncontrollable. But I think I have figured it out The plane should be flown in Modern. The rest was Pilot Error. Me. I reset everything again in FSUIPC, this time adding quite a bit of Slope into all the control surface settings. But I was holding the pane on the ground way too long before rotating. Looks like I have it sorted out now. Thanks for your reply.
  3. I purchased the Corenado Piper PA44 Seminole from the MSFS store in the sim. It is version 1.5 I have setup all the controls and buttons in FSUIPC7 for if and everything works. However, I can't keep it straight going down the runway for take off. I created a new profile for each of my CH Products controllers in MSFS and left them all blank and selected. I then used FSUIPC7 setup pages for axis and buttons. All other planes work well. This plane goes wild going down the runway. I can not keep it going in a straight line. I have tried all kinds of Slope curves in the FSUIPC axis page for the rudder, but nothing works. As soon as I get some speed up, it starts turning right. I apply a little left rudder and the plane goes into a hard left turn on the runway. I apply right rudder and the plane turns hard right and so on. back and forth on the runway. Has anyone seen anyone else having this problem with this or other planes using FSUIPC7? Thanks
  4. I got it solved, BUT. I could not delete the airplane for some unknow reason. It was not in my hangar, but was showing in Manage page, but it would not show up in the sim. So, I decided totake your advice and delete it from my sim, then go back to the store and try to download it again. NO JOY. It would not delete from the Manage page. So, since that was the only item i had purchased or even got as freeware, I decided it would be just as easy to delete the whole sim and start over. I have a very fast download speed. I removed the program from my computer and went to the store and got a fresh download, and what do you know? I started the sim and there was the plane already installed and the sim is running perfectly. Problem solved. Thanks
  5. I agree. I have been a flight sim user since 1983 and have purchased every version that MS came out with, as well as P3D and have never had so much trouble finding things. If and when I find a specific item, I create a Desktop Shortcut and name it with a sensible name so that I can go back and find it again. Even the in game menu items are strange to me and are hard to use.
  6. Yes they do. Here are a couple of Youtube hits. This is a really cool plane. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z63V8PV7TJsandhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMePuwIKQo8
  7. Update. I found another guy with the same problem on the MSFS forum, but since I cant post there, here is the link to his [post. There are no replies to him yet. https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/marketplace-content-installation/340264/3
  8. I am posting here because for some unknown reason I cant post in the MSFS official forum. I am loged in and my profile is there, but all I can do everyone else's posts. Anyhow, several months ago I bought the Carinado Piper PA44 Seminole aircraft from the Market Place in the sim. I have been using it every week. The other day there was an update and I performed that. Now the plane is missing from My Hangar. It does show up in my Content Manager, and it says it is up to date, but there is no version listed. I am trying to see if it is in the addon file in the sim, what is it called, the Common file, but I can't find that either. Can anyone point me o at addon file, and does anyone know how to fix this? I was going to download the plane agai, but can't seem to be able to do this unless I buy it again. Thanks
  9. You find the settings to turn them on/off under the Assistance tab/Navigation Aids/POI Markers
  10. Your number 1-Window Heat. I can not find anything for Toggle Window Heat in the MSFS lists. There is Toggle Anti Ice. Is that what you are thinking of? Thanks
  11. That would be a good idea. I don't need all that junk showing on my screen all the time, so I do not have that feature turned on. However, there are times that I wonder what some large building is and would like to be able to just turn it on for a minute to see that particular item identified, if it is, and then turn the feature beck off.
  12. I too have had my second shot over 4 weeks ago here n Chicagoland and just went to Mortons The Steak House in Naperville. The old one downtown Chicago is closed. Mortons also are observing social distancing with the tables and require masks as you enter or move about inside, but not at the table. It was good to get out again.
  13. Well how would you feel if you bought a new car and every time you started it, something else broke?
