    AEROSOFT CRJ-700/900

    Still waiting for more positive replies on the CRJ's...I have all the PMDG models and love them all...I also have the Aerosoft 320,321 and they follow the LNAV very well...Going from a Boeing to Airbus does take adjustments, but after 10 years of flight with FedEx, I find flying simulators very refreshing. Much easier on the nerves...:)
  2. found the problem...stated above...the Lua script had some mistakes, corrected those mistakes and the GTN-750 and pmdg JS4100 will now talk to each other... So disregard the former post of mine... Regards, Bob Adams
  3. disclaimer: I am a novice programmer...I followed the suggestions given by the article on how to write a Lua script from "Guide to couple JS41 autopilot and Flight 1 GTN 750" I was able to figure out with microsoft visual basic to write the Script while 1 == 1 do ipc.writeLvar("L:FdModese1NavSwitch", 1) ipc.control(66587,278) ipc.control(66587,8031) ipc.sleep(200) end I followed the instructions from the article and was able to implement the procedure which works...However, after about 25 minutes from the point of setting autopilot which engaged GTN750, I got the following error... "An unhanded win32 exception occurred in fsx.exe [6828] then "new instance of visual studio community 2017 open up and I will place the debug file below so that maybe somebody with programming experience with visual studio will state what is going on....I am not sure if this is due to a memory error or a problem with Simconnect... 'fsx.exe' (Win32): Unloaded 'C:\fsx\PMDG\dlls\PMDGOptions.dll' 'fsx.exe' (Win32): Loaded 'C:\fsx\PMDG\dlls\PMDGOptions.dll'. Module was built without symbols.

    CTD without log or crash report

    This is the second time I had a CTD problem with the pmdg DC-6. I sent a service request to pmdg with my fsx.fig and the fsx\pmdg\pmdg dc-6\pmdg dc-6.log I have NO problems with pmdg 777,747 and 737 aircraft running high settings in fsx with GSX and ActiveSky weather for a 12 hour flight across the Pacific ocean with the water setting turned to MAX...Then, along comes the pmdg DC-6 and nothing but problems...I turned all my fsx settings down to the lowest levels and after 2 hours of flying, I get a freeze on the screen or it goes back to the opening fsx screen.. I am NOT a computer greek, so let the development team solve the problem... Sincerely, Bob Adams

    Flight 1 GTN Complete 530 / 430

    Most of the posts I have been reading are outdated....I have installed Flight1 GTN series GTN-650 in the pmdg dc-6 via the GPS/radio options control... Now, the problem is figuring out how the GTN-650 controls the aircraft...I have tempted every setting I can think of using the native Sperry A-12 autopilot control turning it off and on using GPS/NAV , but that doesn't work...the only program is Version 8 FSC which will control the aircraft....There must be somebody that can lead me in the correct procedure to change or add files...I am not a computer geek, but can follow instructions...Thanks in advance for any help...

    GTN 650/750

    I have the Flight1 GTN 650 installed in the pmdg dc-6,but haven't been able to control the autopilot feature...Anyone can help me on this one...I have attempted different settings of the Sperry A-12 autopilot control on the dc-6 and it doesn't work in NAV or GPS modes...I have used "FSC version 8 and the program will guide the aircraft to various set VOR's...

    Navigraph Database rebuild 0%

    I did all the above with the .dll file...No change after 2 hours of sitting at 12 percent, I finally gave up and deleted the Navigational program...That also improved my frame rate from 3 or 4 fps to around 30...I have installed the GTN750...Now if I can find a panel file...Also, seeking information about how to update the AIRAC to latest 1707...The database is outdated...But a least the GTN 750 program works very well with the Carenado Phenom 300...I am considering buying the ISG program which can be updated...Does anybody have information about how that works with the Carenado Phenom 300?

    FMS will not load?

    Same problem...I have un-installed and re-install the Phenom 300 3 times as "they" suggested...When I attempt to upgrade the Navigraph database for AIRAC 1707 it's at 12% after 1 hour...no problems with other brands including the famous PMDG....This is IT! No more aircraft purchases from several companies including "Carenado"... Bob Adams
  11. My story is a little different...I have the Carenado Phenom 300 with the Navigraph extension... I have downloaded the latest update versions of both programs into C:\fsx directory...After updating my AIRAC to the latest version 1707, it will take several hours before anything will happen when updating the Navigraph database...I have attempted to totally un-install both programs and re-install into C:\fsx directory, however that didn't help...I even re-built the fsx.cfg files that didn't improve anything...I have all the PMDG aircraft and have not one problem with the frame rates..With Carenado I move the joystick hat to change positions inside the aircraft, and between 3 to 5 seconds it will change....No problems doing this with the other aircraft, so it's NOT my computer which is a "gaming" machine...Normally the Frame rate for the Carenado is working about 6 or 7 fps...All the other aircraft in my collection run way above 30 fps....So something is wrong...Not being a computer geek, I have no idea why?

    Wilco Falcon 7x version 2.0

    Version 2.8.8...Terrible...I hope they re-design...basically it's useless...Just wasted another $39.00 for a piece of crap...No more Wilco for me...Just have to see what PMDG will design next...Going back to to flying the PMDG 777...

    Cabin Altitude problem

    Interesting...I had a tail strike taking off from RJAA this morning...Climbing to FL290 the cabin altitude warning light appeared into the flight..So, I started reading all the information....I tried the "pause" that didn't do anything....Finally, I climbed out on the wing at FL290 and was looking around...When I climbed back into the aircraft, the red warning light turned off...Back to normal....strange...

    BlackBox Simulation- Airbus A330/40

    Flight from klax to kmem.. read all reviews... want repeat, but basically agree with most of the problems,,,climb out speeds and bobbing up and down on approach... also following updated star into Memphis and vnav wasn't precised which caused me to loose speed and crash about 2 miles from touch down...thanks for some improvements
  15. Thanks for reply from Jim Young and a member SIMBOL After entering the flight plan with SIDS and STARS using Airac 1611 YES, I am following page 7 using 15000ft or FL150...after entering the correct figures it still reverts back to the default ALT setting of original setting of 5200... (NO, Simbol nothing with the cabin pressure settings) From manual NOTE: "The altitude selected is reached at that specific waypoint and it is calculated internally based on the current altitude and the remaining distance" I understand the above, but when attempting to change to a lower Altitude setting for Arrival section of the flight plan, it doesn't change...For example when top of climb is reached at FL310 this remains, but when attempting to enter a lower altitude at about 150 miles out from point of descent, to say 8,000ft from 31,000 it will not accept the lower number but reverts back to 31,000 after pressing "ENT" button...
