  1. Get over yourself, you brought it up.
  2. P.S. Look very carefully at the Yoko in this video...
  3. It's worth noting that Virtual Fly just updated its TQ6 throttle quadrant to the 'TQ6 Plus'. This uses Hall Effect sensors, as does their V3RNIO TPM throttle unit. If I were in the market for a Yoko I would probably wait a couple of months!
  4. Well it confirms the action of the rocker switches :) Looking good, but I worry about the 'soft touch surface', which inevitably deteriorates into a sticky mess after a few years and will need removing.
  5. P3D does multi-monitor very well with View Groups. Just like X-Plane 11, in fact. Personally I think going back to FSX for any reason would be a big mistake. But if you're going to go 4K, make sure you have the right breed of super-computer to drive it.

    You will find it helpful to watch this video from 3:20 onwards.

    Trim wheel problem P3Dv4 only

    Are you using the Saitek trim wheel? If so, this is appears to be a common problem. For me the fix is to make sure I move the trim wheel before starting P3D until Windows gives the 'USB disconnect' sound. Then everything works properly. If I don't do this, I get into the same twilight zone you describe, with no mouse control and the only way out is to hard reset the computer. Don't ask me why, but it is so
  8. No deadzones. Bungee life - who knows. From bungees I have around the garage I'd estimate 10 years if they're exposed to weather. If it needs new ones, maybe you can buy them at Halfords and fit them yourself. BTW, PFC yokes use bungees and nobody complains about those ;)

  10. Make sure you do your research on the GoFlight yoke. I have not tried one but it has a bad reputation for sticking too. If you're looking for excellence, Yoko is the way to go.

    Can't see any mobile version.
  12. Lubricating is not going to help, this is a design issue with the Saitek yoke that more or less guarantees sticking in the pitch axis if you have any aileron applied. You can look at my Saitek Cessna yoke review video for details, although it won't really help you. The Cessna yoke works better, if you can find one.
  13. Yes, apparently the IoS are already modelled in TrueEarth. A recent post by John Venema says they intend to update all the airports to 2018 specs where possible. I presume her means for all the ES legacy products, since IoS only has one proper airport.)

    FSUIPC and LUA Script

    I didn't write it, I just tweaked the layout.
