  1. Same here, I switched to RXP unit because of poor Flight1 response to new Prepar3d versions. Now up to date.
  2. CYQB was released as a preview airport on another site done by Flight1Four. And Gilles Boily is working on porting his version from FSX/P3D.
  3. Do you know if its the same for A2A Cherokee that has an utility for F1 GTN but none for RXP ? Switched from F1 to RXP yesterday and want to update some of my favorites like A2A Cherokee but also Real Air (all), Carenado C208 and C337 ?
  4. I defined 10 custom views and assigned them to buttons on my Honeycomb yoke.
  5. Could be interesting to consider keeping only spad. I’m new to spad but I had it up and running with default profiles quite rapidly yesterday. And you benefit from nice plus like button acceleration (usefull for large changes in headind, altitude, crs etc). The radio panels switch button also has a standard function in the nav position to turn on audio identification of the nav frequency on a long press (500 ms). So some interesting functionality readily available if you made the purchase.
  6. Ok thanks, I was looking at the different options available.
  7. I downloaded and installed the demo and tried to assign two different functions to the multipanel knob. But it seems we can only assign one function as I dont see any combo button field in the setup screen. Is it something possible like it was in Linda for instance ? My objective is to increase altitude by 100 ft normally and 1000 ft with a combo button on my yoke.
  8. New to VR for a couple of day. It definitively need an utility to check approach plates or flight planning documents in the VR environment. For the mouse, I either close the right eye and I can precisely see where the arrow should be but that is awkward. I use mainly the focus button that bring you to a few inches of the button you want to depress. I have also mapped customs view on 5 buttons of my honeycomb yoke with one button used to shift so i can have 10 custom view in the cockpit. It was working well in 2d but I have to change most of the custom view in VR so it feel more natural. Not sure that using a controller will be better as I gave both hand on the yoke and throttle cadran very often and I dont see how i would hold a controller at the same time.
  9. I made the same comment to the author. The problem apparently may be related to adding fuel after having started the flight rather than putting the fuel when you select the aircraft. The FLIGHT LOG page of the FMS shows funny value immediately after having put fuel from the in cockpit menu. But when I look at the tank consumption from the MFD tanks field (difference between beginning and end of flight) then the consumption is reasonable. I'm at this point in testing and I was planning to put the fuel from the aircraft selection menu to see how the log page react.
  10. Yep, I had some scary approach until getting a survivable landing (not the same for the couple of chicken that I fried through the Caravan turbine on final). Rank 500 on the leaderboard.
  11. The VL-3 for now after having spent time in each of the plane offered. The DV 20 is interesting also as it was my first plane for real training.
  12. The Saitek trim wheel act as a button rather than an axis in other assignment software. It send repeated button depress signal to increase or decrease the trim level. So normal you dont see this in the axis user interface.
  13. I had some success at creating linda functions for multi panel. All the lua code I create are located in the user.lua of each aircraft that I modified. First you need to write some functions to fetch information to display on the multi panel. You can use the same function names as the one in the original linda code as the function in user.lua have always precedence over the original linda code. to display to the multipanel, you need to rewrite the following functions. You can start by copying the original code into the user.lua of the plane you want to modify then change a few lines. - getALTvalue() - getVSvalue() - getSPDvalue() - getHDGvalue() - getCRSvalue() you will find the original functions around lines 5270 of the common.lua files of the original Linda code. You can look at the module created by Linda authors for the PMDG as you can often identify which code can replace the original one. Now for changing the value its a bit more coding but this time you want to recopy and modify the code from the Saitek library as mentionned in the post above. There is one function to increase and one to decrease. In my case I also created a function for larger increment that I use with the shifted mode offered by Linda. I also fuzzed a debouncing code to avoid the double increment or decrement that often arrises. I have such code for the Majestic Q400, A2A Piper Cherookee, DA60 and some others but nothing for PMDG as such. Send me a p.m. if you want an example of this code.
  14. I will try this also. I had this persistent problem even after switching two different sound cards. Presently, I reduce all other sounds to be able to hear Vox.
  15. I7 6700K that I run overclocked at 4.5 Ghz. In the scenario over Toronto, it run on 8 core (hyperthread on) at about 65% loading. Unless some other on the web that observe only 4 cores used, I found that most time the load is spread almost evenly on the 8 cores. Maybe 2 or 3 have a 10% to 20% more load than others but none peak to 100% with my setting (High in general but some at Medium and others at Ultra).
