  1. I followed the installation instructions included with v1.8 of the mod pack. To get the GTN in the PC-12 you have to run "F1GTN750PC12.exe" which will be located in the SimObjects\Airplanes\Carenado PC12 folder. This will install the GTN into the PC-12 automatically.
  2. 4.2 hours. From KBLI to KPHX. With the mod pack, this aircraft is almost spot on for performance in the sim vs. the actual aircraft.
  3. Yes, I am running V2 of the PC-12 with the current version of the mod pack, which is V1.8. Now that the GTN is available for P3D4 I can finally use this bird in all its glory. Flew from KBLI to KPHX (just a hair over four hours) last night and everything was golden.
  4. I have been using the performance mods by Autogyro and Bert in v4 without any issues at all. Just waiting for the GTN and this thing will be close to perfect.
  5. Excellent news!! Thank you for the update.
  6. I'm sure there are a few users of the Virtual Avionics suite who, like myself, will be migrating to Prepar3d V4 in the coming weeks. I curious to know if the VAInterface is slated to be updated to work with P3DV4? I personally use the 737 MCP, EFIS, and Virtual CDU in V3 and would very much like to be able to use them in V4. Thanks!!
  7. All of the cable sleeving supplies are from MainFrameCustoms, same place you're getting your cables from. I'm using the Telios sleeving, as opposed to the paracord. I decided to go with a heatshrink-less design and its easier to do with the Telios than the paracord. The 24 pin cable took about 8-10 hours to make from start to finish and its about 30 inches long. Here's an upclose photo of the 24 pin whie I was sewing it together:
  8. Here we go Rich. This is just one side of the case. I have to build the second side which will run my Sandy Bridge setup. The X99 set-up is black and white, my camera rendered the white LED strip lighting with a slight purple hue. Everything here is all custom built, including the wiring, which has been sleeved and cable sewn. The cooling system and fans are all automatically controlled and monitored by an Aquacomputer Aquaero 6 Pro.
  9. Keep up the good work Rich, it's looking beautiful. Water cooling a computer is as much a labor of love as it is art. I just finished my X99 5930K/Titan build in a Caselabs TX10D last week. It's a lot of work but the end results are going to be worth it.
  10. Looks like someone has been watching or has watched the Flight Video Productions PC-12 flight. B) Good job on the review and I agree with you on all points especially the one about the sounds. In fact I'm contemplating swapping in the sound package from the Flight1 PC-12.
  11. It's funny you mention that because the code for the fuel system on the PC-12 was directly written off their G1000 code and right below it they have an entry for it to read from the FSX values. It has just been remarked out of the gauge file. :blink:
  12. So after some mathematical figuring the reason the EIS is showing the wrong fuel quantity is that it is showing the fuel amount in liters not pounds. It's even coded in liters in the gauge file. I will be tweaking the EIS code for that one and I'm still digging around on the Electrical and ITT issues.
  13. Well after some initial investigations into IAS mode, it is actually working as it's supposed to. Just before takeoff I set 22000 feet into the altitude selector, mashed the throttles forward and gained some altitude. Once the aircraft was cleaned up and when I was at my desired climb speed, in this case for testing it was 150 KIAS, I switched on the autopilot and yaw damper and activated IAS. At this point I was climbing at 2000 FPM. The VSI started moving a little bit as the trims took over and I let go of the controls from there on the aircraft adjusted pitch to hold 150 KIAS and to test if I was imagining this I pulled the power back a little (while watching the power lever in the VC move with my saitek yoke) and the nose started to drop to maintain speed. By the time I was passing through FL200 my climb rate was at 900FPM and I was controlling the power of the engine. Carenado didn't cheat on this one, as I have looked at the gauge code for the autopilot and here is what it says: ((A:AIRSPEED SELECT INDICATED OR TRUE, knots))%!d!: %((A:Autopilot pitch hold ref, degrees))%!3.1f!:%((L:PitchRef_cont,number))% I'm actually quite chuffed with this. B)
  14. Hello all, I wanted to make a post where everyone call poll together their observations on issues and bug found to see if we can get them fixed by Carenado or find a way to mend them on our own. I know I plan on personally tinkering with a few things to see if I can improve upon them. I feel that the PC-12 is a very good foundation and can, with a small amount of effort, be an excellent version for sim pilots to enjoy. These are items I have found upon my initial test flights that should be addressed: 1. Engine ITT values during climb/cruise are not increasing with altitude, instead they are decreasing. 2. Strobe switch on the overhead panel does not display "ON" when strobes are turned on. 3. Electrical system not modeled correctly. EIS display should show the generated output of the electrical system on DC bus A and B, while, the overhead panel should show the amperage draw as accessories and lighting are switched on. Presently both display 7 amps, irregardless of what is turned on. 4. RXP GNS config only includes ONE unit for the top 530. The second 530 is a Carenado default. (I am presently tweaking the panel config for dual RXP 530's) 5. Cabin lighting configuration, Cabin reading lights come on with the panel lights. This looks like it is down to the fact the interior model is textured on two different textures and one switch controls both of those textures. That is my findings as of now, I only have about an hour of test flights with her. Overall I'm impressed. I was a huge fan of the Flight1 PC-12 and this one with a few improvements can surpass it as the leader for FSX/P3D. Feel free to post you findings as well, hopefully we can get some fixes made.
