    Aviation, derrr. Isn't that why we're all here in the first place?

    Problem I've never seen before-spinning 77W

    I have "enhanced tirbulence" un-checked. Seen too many people complain about it to risk trying it. I did the exact problematic flight again this morning, and guess what? No issues at all lol! Don't know what I did different, but oh well

    Problem I've never seen before-spinning 77W

    I mean yeah, i figured navdata shouldn't be doing that, having been a flight simmer since 1998, just trying to trouble shoot and look at everything since I've never seen this before. I'll check the trim next time. No ezdok. Active sky next turbulence is set to 20/100 value. Thanks for actually trying it. I didn't command anything when it happened, i was actually watching a video on my phone, so my joystick was centered, nothing was touched, and suddenly it starts spinning like crazy lol. I did the flight again with the 737, BEREE1 arrival, no problems. Ill try it again with the 77W and check the trim and stuff

    Climg performance 777

    This guy is a troll right? FL1000? 100,000ft? And then people try to explain things and he says their being rude? Whaaaaaaaaat

    Problem I've never seen before-spinning 77W

    I'll check, but this happened on a new flight from scratch twice, no saved flight loaded. I did the flight again today but used the FORNEY arrival instead even though it was less efficient (dfw landing south) and nothing bad happened this time. Thinking it's a navdata thing. I'll do another repeat with BENEE1 again later
  5. Just encountered an issue I have never seen before. When approaching the WARDZ waypoint on the BEREE1 Star at KDFW, my airplane suddenly starts spinning and banking at a rate of about 360 degrees/second. I thought that MAYBE it was a spike in controls causing it to go haywire, so I recreated the flight, and it happened at the exact same time. Here is what I have going on for this flight: FSX:SE KMIA-KDFW Departure Time 1700z WINCO2 WINCO J43 LBV DCT SRQ DCT REDFN Q105 HRV/N0486F360 J58 PEBBY DCT PNUTS BEREE1 ZFW-524000 TOW-582350 Activesky Next - set to sim time- Sept 15, 1700z departure No other addons other than up to date AFCADS from Avsim that I've been using for a while already. Recently updated to AIRAC 1710 from Navigraph, so maybe that's the problem. Anyone up for recreating? I'm about to start this same route, same time with the 737. If that plane does it, then it might be Navigraph. I've been flying this plane for years, so this is a very odd problem i've never seen. Thanks Oh, and after this happens, I enter slew mode to correct the attitude of the airplane, then it flies for a few seconds, then spins again, and then my sim freezes, while also looking like its trying to refresh the view constantly. After that I just end FSX.exe in the task manager.

    747 not able to follow star approach

    Pinned topic in this subforum that says 'Read before posting' http://www.avsim.com/topic/503520-pmdg-747-400-qotsii-issue-tracking-thread-read
  7. As Rob stated earlier, they used a plain vanilla install to check for vas leaks, just to eliminate other factors. Obviously at other times they would test it with many variations of add-ons installed over the course of beta and within their own staff
  8. Thanks Rob! I haven't bought it yet, but just posted in another similar topic about this wing droop and said "maybe they did model it right, but some glitch is preventing it from displaying properly". Also, I figured yall would get to it after initial release support. Turns out that was correct!

    Is it just me...

    Yeah, I love me some PMDG, and there are a lot of "know it all" types out there that give them flack about things that they don't have data for, but this wing droop when empty is not in line with what is seen out in the real world. Maybe they did model it right, but some glitch is preventing it from showing? All it takes is seeing an arriving 747 coming into the gate to see that the wings are almost straight, which obviously means it has lower fuel levels than a drooping wing of one ready to depart across the Pacific. It's not a big deal in terms of the whole simulation, but maybe they can work on it at a later time after initial release support winds down.
  10. I really hope yall can roll this back into the 777! This feature would take that plane from a 97% satisfying flying experience to 100% in my personal opinion.

    Dude, that second shot looks like a picture! Very nice. Wish my computer could do that

    747v3 performance calculator

    The Topcat and pfpx profiles were made using real life 747 data. So if PMDG 747v2 was flying close to the numbers, then v3 should be even more so. For instance, maybe the Topcat calculations said you would have 1500ft to spare on a rejected takeoff. With 747v2, you might get within 300ft of that, but with 747v3 it might be a margin of 100ft. Same thing with fuel consumption. Now, this is all assuming Topcat and pfpx have perfect real-world profiles, which they very well might not. What I'm looking forward to the most in v3 are the customizations, accurate representation of RR and PW engines, and flight dynamics. Can't wait for MTOW with RR engines (the weakest ones). Over or under 11° nose up anyone?
  13. Not so good on reading comprehension today, eh folks? He said list may change. Nowhere did he say it's a release list of liveries
