  1. Maybe disable the workaround ..... head tracking. you may still have it on the TrackIR pause key.
  2. I use the arrow keys and the + and - for zoom. check in MS2020 by pushing an arrow key and see if it is binded to something else. Must be a conflict somewhere.
  3. it's easy. just change the assignments for the camera. I use alt + number for save camera view and just the number for load the camera view. Position the camera with the up/down, left right keys, to get the view you want, press alt (number you want), then just press the corresponding number on your number pad to get that view. But you can use any variation of alt,ctl,etc you want for the camera save/load assignments .simples !
  4. Les O'Rielly has just put out a youtube video addressing this.
  5. I think people need to be aware of how metars are disseminated these days. Metars used to include cloud types and amounts in octas (8th's) of sky coverage. E.G 2sc020 5cu050 7ac090. This would have enabled the weather to be very accurate as both amounts and different cloud types could have been injected into the sim. Unfortunately, IMO, this changed some years ago to just state the cloud coverage and no cloud types are given. e.g. few020 sct050 bkn090 . Therefore, it is very difficult, if not impossible, to allocate a cloud type for a given level of cloud coverage. As an ex pilot/ATC and met observer, the current system is not as accurate as it once was. I find the new sim weather to be very good given the above restraints. My only minor gripe is that the level of clouds seems to be based on AMSL and not AGL. Anyway, it makes for some interesting approaches !
  6. I had the same CTD with the CJ4 first flight after I turned this off . Strange !
  7. Go into the camera icon and disable then enable track IR.
  8. WOW ! Just did my first flights and this is another level. ( just wish I could shoot up a few things ...he he )
  9. I did a post a couple of days ago on the settings for the tbm. "TBM throttle assignments". This may help.
  10. I just make a profile for the TBM. And all my other aircraft as well. Just clone another profile and adjust the assignments. Anyone will do, just delete the mixture and propeller axis. I use the to/go button to because it's very convenient and acts like the gate lever (?) on the real TBM. And I don't use the REV button on the bravo autopilot .
  11. I have read and and watched video's on this subject, and there is a lot of confusion on how to set up the TBM throttle. After much experimenting, I have found a setup which behaves almost exactly like the real TBM ( which I'll explain later ). You only need one throttle ( not two as in the video's ) and three button assignments ( not switches ). I have this setup on my Bravo, but these assignments should work on any throttle. Assignments as follows: Throttle. Set this up as normal to throttle axis ( no reverse ). Reverse thrust . Set this to "decrease throttle" - behind the detent ( button 24 on the bravo ) Toggle from right to left " over the gate " and back. Assign this to "Toggle propeller reverse thrust" ( 29 on bravo). I have this assigned to the red " go around" button. This is the HOLY GRAIL ! Assign a button to " increase throttle" I use the rev button on the bravo autopilot. (button 24) Method: To start, push the starter button - the starter on the Alpha works fine - and hold for 2 seconds. When ITT is 13% or above push the increase throttle button ( REV) This will move the throttle forward to the low idle position. Move throttle forward to high idle. Move the throttle back to the detent when ready, and press the toggle propeller reverse thrust (red button on bravo). This will move the throttle to the left ( unfeathered ) side. Fly aircraft as normal and move the throttle behind the detent for reverse thrust on landing if required. Press the red button again to bring the throttle to the right ( feathered ) side when desired. To shut down, move the throttle back behind the detent. The only thing that is difficult is moving the throttle back to the low idle position, it tends to go into the shut down position. Maybe a null zone may cure this. I haven't tried . I hope this helps everyone to set up the throttle just as the real TBM. BTW, use the search for input function when assigning the various levers and buttons. It makes it a lot easier.
  12. Make sure trackir is connected directly to a port on your machine, not via a usb hub. Fixed mine from dropping out intermittently.
  13. I often work at Shellharbour airport ( YSHL ) in N.S.W Australia. YSHL is the home of the Historical Aviation Restoration Society ( HARS ) and they have a massive complex and numerous aircraft either restored and flying or under restoration. these include DC3's, Lockheed Constellation, Neptune, Convair 440, Catalina, Orion, Drover ,F111, Mirage, F27, DC4, etc etc.... it goes on and on.... i have often wondered how good it would be if you could land there ( ORBX had a version of YSHL ), and then do a virtual tour of the vintage aircraft display. It could also serve as a fund raiser for HARS. Temora also have a wonderful museum of flying military aircraft of Hudson, Sabre, Spitfires, Boomerang, Meteor, Wirraway, Dragonfly, etc.
  14. I have a bravo, but this should work for you as well. I use the to/go button on my throttle to change from side to side. You need to assign this to propeller feather (from memory ). Makes it really easy. And , if you have reverse thrust assigned, the engine will shut down when on the RHS as well. 😁
