  1. A great utility. Many thanks for your work. All that I can suggest for further development would be including the airport elevation along with the other info if that is possible.
  2. I installed Traffic 360 when I installed FSX Steam two years ago and have had no problems
  3. Having read this thread I decided to give FollowMe2 a try with FSX SE. Downloading and installation all proceeded without a hitch but when I invoke the menu I get the message that FollowMe 'is not able to read the Airport Data' I've tried it at several airports - default and payware (mainly UK2000) but without success. I've made sure that all the SimConnects are installed as suggested on the Steam forum and also have MakeRunways and DX10 fixer installed in case that's relevant I can only assime that FollowMe2 is incompatible with FSX SE but maybe someone has a solution. I'm using W10 64 btw I
  4. Blackpool is included in UK2000 Vol3 Airfields (FSX) (as is Warton EGNO) and very good it is blending well with Horizon photoscenery. I have V1 and am not sure whether the recently issued V2 reflects the recent downgrading.
  5. I think the lesson to be learned from this thread is that Saitek gear eventually fails while CH goes on forever. That is why it is still there to go back to when other controllers give up the ghost. I bought my first CH gear starting in 2005 and have been using it more or less daily since then for all manner of flight sims. It is still working as well as ever apart from one lever on the TQ which is showing some slight excess movement at the detente position. Given its longevity, CH is probably a safer buy secondhand and comes up regularly on eBay e.g. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Flight-Simulator-Yoke-/142217295726?hash=item211ccfb76e:g:JksAAOSw5cNYRAbR I bought a Fighterstick and Pro Throttle bundle for £90 from that source. The yoke movement is certainly not as smooth as a yoke shaft made from metal. At a Sim fair, I once had the opportunity to do a side by side comparison witha Swiss built yoke costing £600. Not surpringly the all metal Swiss yoke was noticably smoother and weightier but I have not had any problems wth the CH. Wiping it over with a cloth to keep it free from dust and debris seems to be all that is required.
  6. This sale seems to have ended early - along with all the other FSX items that the seller had listed. Perhaps somebody got in quick with an irresistable 'Buy Now' offer.
  7. Vol 7 has just appeared on eBay Good Luck! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VFR-Photographic-Scenery-Generation-X-Vol-7-Scotland-Central-/331878946330?hash=item4d4586d61a:g:blgAAOSwepJXXBbb
  8. I currently have several ES products installed on FSX. Will I be able to reinstall them on FSX SE when I drop FSX and move over? I haven't saved the files but relied on their ESI installer for fresh downloads.
