  1. I just thought I should confirm: Are there any issues or anything to be aware by having both P3D & XP11 RXP units on the same PC (Win10x64)?

    Switching to xplane?

    Thanks, I'll check it out.

    Switching to xplane?

    Hello & Greetings, I am a longtime FSX/P3DV4 guy who recently made the leap to XP11 on what is currently an experimental journey. I am exclusively a GA type (former airline person in the real world). Overall, the XP11 platform is quite user friendly with more realistic engine behavior and flight dynamics, or so it seems. While the lack of ATC flexibility including lack of VFR is a bit of a bummer, I've learned older ATC programs like Radar Contact 4 (RC4) and PF3 have XP11 plugins and that offer some promise. I have a separate XP11 question that hopefully can be answered: In FSX/P3D the FSUIPC add-on permits specific mappings from keyboard entries to yoke buttons. What I am trying to accomplish in XP11 is to map the 1 and 2 keyboard keys to CH Eclipse Yoke buttons. This is for the purpose of utilizing the RC4 plugin for XP11 ATC comms. I have the XPUIPC installed but I see that is much different than FSUIPC. Many thanks.
  4. Got it, thanks very much. I presently have 5740 X 1080. I believe the 49" is 3840 X 1080.
  5. Great, thanks. The video is outstanding. I may be using some incorrect terminology by field-of-view (FOV). What I'm really interested in is peripheral viewing comparison between the Samsung 49 and my 3x24 Dell setup. If you consider regular human peripheral vision of approximately 160-180 degrees (left shoulder to right shoulder), how would the two compare? I will return to your earlier equation and try and compare that way. By the way, which airport and runway are you using for this sample? Thanks again for all your efforts.

    Cessna 421 Golden Eagle on final

    Can you explain the expectation for the geared engine? Does the Alabeo C404 meet the standard? I ask because the C404 & C421C have near identical engines according to POHs: C404 - Teledyne Continental Motors, GTSIO-520-M, Turbocharged, fuel-injected, gear driven, air cooled, 375 rated HP @ 2235 RPM and 40.0 inches Hg. MP, critical altitude 16,000 feet. C421C - Teledyne Continental Motors, GTSIO-520-L, Turbocharged, fuel-injected, gear driven, air cooled, 375 rated HP @ 2235 RPM and 39.0 inches Hg. MP, critical altitude 20,000 feet.
  7. Thanks for the info; much appreciated.
  8. Mitch, Thanks very much. This is informative. Do you happen to know what the field of view (degrees) is? I'm trying to determine the f-o-v difference between the Samsung 49 and the 3X24 Dells I currently have.
  9. Mitch, I saw the Samsung 49 at the local Microsoft store today. I run 3x24 Dells and while I'm been very accustomed to the 3-monitor setup for several years, the notorious center bezel is a constant nuisance. I've been unable to locate any videos on YouTube for a FSX/P3D Samsung 49 demo. Is there any chance you could post something? Many thanks, Les Parson

    Alabeo and Carenado

    What Golden Eagle? Just kidding, this one is going on 8 months with just a few unfinished photos. I don't know why the project is TS/SCI, or maybe it's just a bust.

    Ground Handling Woes with Redux

    Agreed - 100%. However, I had a heck of a time maintaining control today just after rotation. Further investigation revealed a failure to check takeoff flap setting per the before takeoff checklist resulting in a Full Flap takeoff. There's no excuse for complacency.

    Sure, see below for panel.cfg. After following Bill's instructions (listed below), the aircraft first displayed the Milviz G430. I used the RXP installation tool (located in the Add-On pulldown) and installed the RXP V2 G430 for VC and pop-up. // This Panel.cfg file created by FS Panel Studio panel editor utility -

    NavStaX KingNav Radio Navigation Suite

    The Navstax Nav/Comm Bendix/King suite is an excellent option for those of us that prefer options more commonly found in today's GA real world environment. I have the package installed along with the RXP V2 G430 in the Milviz C310R and could not be more satisfied.
