  1. Just grabbed it - it's amazing and very good on frames. I think this might become my go-to aircraft. Thanks!
  2. Holy smokes! I'm going to pick this one up. I've been waiting on a decent jet for XP11.
  3. The 182s are generally heavier in the controls. They are particularly nose-heavy and require some up trim when landing. There's an established history of bent firewalls due to landing hard on the nose.

    How Xplane11 vs P3DV4 played out

    I think this is going to come down to individual controls and calibration. However, I notice the effects of propwash, control effectiveness at various speeds, spins, slips are fairly accurate, much more so than in P3D, even with A2A counterparts. I'm also coming from a light aircraft viewpoint. I do notice the default 737 is very touchy on the controls. I have not flown 737 in real life, only light twins and singles. With the latest update, ground friction has gotten a little bit better but acceleration still seems a bit off.

    How Xplane11 vs P3DV4 played out

    If it bothers you, feel free to not comment. This is "Hangar Chat" correct? OP, if you're interested in a more X-Plane friendly atmosphere, check out the /r/flightsim subreddit. However, you'll find P3D haters there, as well. I just tried XP11 and I'm sold. I can list 20 things that platform handles better but it's been covered before. I'm a real world CPL and I know what's realistic and what's not. XP11 has got it in spades, with the default aircraft no less. That's it.

    Eaglesoft airplanes coming, but not to v4?

    There are other options that are not Eaglesoft. I wrote this company off years ago after having several problems and/or basic functionality questions with the v2 CitationX FMS/CDU. I never received anything but condescending and rude statements from one developer in particular. Maybe the lack of Navigraph support is because they still haven't figured out how to make a realistically functioning FMS. However, somebody is still buying this stuff. This feels like another money-grab to me, like so many other products out there.

    Flightbeam KIADv2 <released>

    Yep, I saw the KABQ screenshots, that made me consider moving to XPlane. Amazing. KIAD is my home airport and love this scenery.

    EZCA freeze and then CTD on aproach

    No, just prepar3d.exe as hung app in Event Viewer. I've already gone to great lengths to rule out any other addons, including a completely clean reinstall of 4.1 with nothing added or running in the background and still had the problem when introducing only EZDok, and this only occurs while switching views using EZDok shortcuts. I've even tried a different keyboard all together. The only remaining thing to rule out would be my overclock, but this is a very modest overclock which has shown no issues otherwise. I did up my voltage a bit two days ago as I was running around 1.17v. Then again, this and hardware can be ruled out too, given that this gentleman (DragonAsh) is having the exact same symptoms on page 4 in the below thread. It could be related to the PMDG 737, however as this is what I'm using and have not seen the problem in any other aircraft.

    EZCA freeze and then CTD on aproach

    My entire sim will freeze completely with a message that the program "has stopped responding." I'll have to manually kill the program. When I'm back at the desktop, I see the other message box for EZCA, "the handle is invalid."

    Why are bush flying VA’s dead?

    Check out this place - http://return.mistymoorings.com/ Not a true VA but they are a great group of people that have created and organized a world for bush flying in the PNW, up to Alaska based on the Orbx regions plus some freeware that fits in with it all. They've been around since FS9. Very nice and helpful folks.

    EZCA freeze and then CTD on aproach

    You're the second person I've seen that might be having the same issue as me. I've been getting the freezing up when changing views in EZDok, with a "handle is invalid" message on most incidents. No other messages, errors or anything in the system logs. I'm curious to know what version of EZdok you're running. I had the freeze with 2.6.25 and 2.6.27. I've done several flights with 2.6.26 and have not had the problem.

    CPU-GPU temperatures

    I've got one of the heat monster 7900X CPUs. I've overclocked to 4.6 on all 10 cores at 1.18v and I'm running under load in P3D around mid 70s C. I've never seen it get above 80C but I don't really want to push it any more than this. I may bump up the voltage a bit because I'm seeing a few weird issues from time to time. I idle around 30C. I've got it in a room that stays about 68F. I have the H115i AIO and two Noctua intake fans on it. To maintain the mid 70Cs I need to put the AIO fans on full blast. Opening the room windows when it's cold out really dropped my temps because the Noctuas can pull the cooler air in and not keep recycling the hot stuff that's being blown out by the case.

    What's in your P3D hanger?

    I just have two at the moment since I'm just get back into the simming after a few years - PMDG 737NGX and the Just Flight P28R Arrow III. I'll probably add the PMDG J41 when that comes out.
