  1. Paul, Per your advice I obtained the free lasso utility. I have the GTN-750 set to high priority using 4 cores. FSX is set for "normal" priority for the time being. An added bonus is the response time (the time it takes the GTN to boot up when I load the aircraft, and the time it takes to change screens in the GTN-750 when using the mouse to change screens in the GTN) has improved. Thanks much for the advice.
  2. Thanks all for the information. I wasn't aware of process lasso. I'll give it a try. I have a quad-core cpu (Intel i5-6500).
  3. 90% of my flights in FSX are with the A2A C182 Skylane and the Flysimware Lear 35, which both have the Flight 1 GTN-750 installed. About a month ago, I began to have significant stuttering problems with FSX where, previously, this was not an issue other than the occasional microstutter. Despite the stuttering, I was consistently getting 40-50 fps and higher but the stutters continued to get worse. I tried numerous fixes, e.g.; updating my video card driver(Nvidia GTX 750 ti) and making some changes in my fsx.cfg, At one point I thought Active Sky Next (ASN) might be the cause of the problem, but this turned out not to be the case when I did a flight without ASN and still had the stuttering. Then I recalled that the stuttering began around the same time that I had to reinstall the GTN-750 after it failed to display in the panels of the two aircraft. (I never determined what caused this but after reinstalling it, it worked properly) Today after attempting another flight out of PAJN (Juneau, AK) in the Lear 35, and getting severe stuttering as soon as I began taxiiing to the runway, I decided to uninstall the GTN-750. ( I backed up the installation file so I can reinstall it at any time). Without the GTN-750 in my panel, the flight was stutter-free and smooth as silk. I would really like to continue use the GTN so I'm wondering if anyone else has, or had, the same issue and can provide some information or recommend an alternative to the GTN-750.. Thanks. Bob .
  4. Problem resolved. When I initially installed the Cherokee, the Aircraft Configurator was not in the Tools Folder. So, I assumed that it simply wasn't available for my version of FSX (boxed version). Yesterday, I posted this issue on the A2A Cherokke forum and explained the problem. Nick, who I believe is the forum moderator, advised that an update file was available and recommended that I download and install it, which I did this morning. The Aircraft Configurator, along with the Input Configurator and a file called "ac.cfg" are now in the Tools folder. I just activated the GTN 750 in the Cherokee cockpit. Bob
  5. Well after delving into this a little more, it appears that I'm out of luck because the Cherokee 180 for the FSX boxed version does not have the "airport configurator" utility, as far as I can tell. It does not appear in the appropriate A2A folder or any sub-folders. It does have an "input configurator" but this utility won't accomplish what my original post was addressing. So I have to use the 2d version of the GTN 750 unless I upgrade to the FSX Steam version or P3d.
  6. Thanks for the information. I took a look at the Aircraft Configurator but, to be honest, I can't figure out how I would use it to integrate the GTN 750 into the Cherokee VC. Is there a tutorial that is available?
  7. I purchased the A2A cherokee 180 and installed the Flight 1 GTN 750 into the aircraft but...it only appears as a movable 2D panel in the cherokee VC. I want to integrate the GTN 750 into the 3d Cherokee panel. I know this can be done as I've seen it in a youtube video. The Cherokee manual provided by A2A does not discuss this matter. Does anyone know how this can be accomplished and/or is there a tutorial that will provide this informaton? Thanks for any information. Bob
  8. I think I found a solution which has worked so far. At the beginning of the flight, sitting on the tarmac, getting the A/C ready for my flight and starting up the engines etc., I place the taxi/landing lights switch in the "taxi-light" (mid-range) position and leave it there. I do this whether or not my flight begins in daylight. For the remainder of the flight until the landing phase, I keep the light-switch in the taxi-light position. Then, if I land in dark conditions, (late-evening/night), I place the switch in the far-up (landing lights on) position to turn on the landing lights as I approach the airport. When I turn off the runway, I switch to the taxi-lights. Using this procedure, the landing and taxi lights now illuminate the ground in front of the aircraft. So the key point here, which has resolved my issue, is to turn on the taxi light-switch at the very beginning of the flight (even when it's mid-day) and keep it there, rather than wait until the landing phase to turn on the landing lights (if needed).
  9. Bob, Tks for reply. I'm using the boxed version of FSX. Is there a "dynamic lighting" feature? I know Prepar3d has this. I did have the landing/taxi light switch located on the panel in the "on" position for taxi and landing lights. Well, I'll keep working on it. Will post back if I solve the issue.
  10. I have updated my Learjet 35 to the latest version, 3.0. I have noticed that the taxi and landing lights, from the cockpit view, are not illuminating the ground in front of the aircraft, although in spot view I can see see that the lights are on. I was not having this issue in prior versions of the lear. I don't know if this is a specific problem with v3.0 or if there may be something I may be overlooking. Any advice appreciated. Thanks. Bob
  11. If you want a payware bizjet where everything actually works, including the autopilot, get my personal favorite, the Flysimware Learjet 35A. If you do get it, I highly recommend also purchasing the Flight 1 Garmin GTN 750.
  12. It doesn't appear that there is a way to get radar contact to recognize a flight plan that is input directly into the Carenado Hawker 850 fmc. Does anyone know of a way to accomplish this?
  13. Bingo, Mark I noticed the same thing with Microsoft Security Essentials. It periodically will utilize 20-25 percent of cpu time when it's does its "real-time" protection activity. So now, each time I fly with FSX, I disable the MSE real-time function (just takes a few seconds) and fly FSX. After the flight, I go back and enable MSE real-time protection. Running the scanner after this shows no problems with viruses etc.
  14. I was watching a youtube video of a Cessna Citation V. The pilot was not touching the yoke but it was turning left/right in response to his use of the rudder pedals while he was taxiing to the departing runway. One of the video's viewers asked about this and the pilot indicated that this aircraft used an interconnected rudder/aileron, and he only used the yoke to make coordinated turns. I know that some large aircraft (B747 etc.) make turns using the yoke (with no rudder input) and an automated spoiler system on the rising wing to reduce the reverse yaw effect. But does anyone know of any other aircraft besides the Citation V that have an interconnected rudder/aileron. My question really relates to any add-on FSX aircraft such as the Flight 1 Citation Mustang, or Citation X and whether this feature is modeled. Thanks.
