    LGKR to LGMK

    Love seeing those runways with the actual curvature, not unrealistically flat. Nice shots!
  2. Just saw the announcement....will buy this as soon as I get home...looks terrific....note, this is the video showing FSX scenery, but their website has the XPlane screenshots

    X-Aviation has announced the Socata TBM900

    terrific news....the level of add-ons in Xplane continues to improve. Good time to be in this hobby.
  4. Interesting post in their Facebook page....the title is "pigs may fly....
  5. yeah, it was a license built US variant, not an original design...dont think you will have much luck anyone looking into creating one but good luck all the same.
  6. there is a freeware F27-600 and someone made a mod for it to improve it...look it up
  7. Hi Martin, Apparently, what I have is indeed coil whine.....until now I had never heard of the term....but watched some YouTube videos and the noise is spot on. Raised a ticket with Corsair....3 days later they asked for proof of purchase, and half a week later no further news. I will take it back to the retailer I got it from and ask for a replacement....it is a real pain having to undo all the cabling inside the case but these things happen I guess. Thanks for the assistance chaps, your input is greatly appreciated.
  8. Tearing my hair out.....my Asus Z97-A motherboard died suddenly 3 weeks ago.....very strange., After replacing it, my Corsair 850W power supply died....it was only 3 years old. I replaced it with a brand new Corsair RM850I the very next day. Then i noticed that my system has a noticeable noise when under load....ie if I start X-Plane, P3D or DCS, there is a metallic constant squeak, which only starts under load, and stops when I stop the programs and go back to desktop. I thought my GTX970 was failing so I replaced it......and the noise is STILL there....so the culprit is definitely the Corsair Power Supply. Has anybody had this before? Should I look at replacing it or is it just a squaky frame or fan in the PSU? If I take it back to the shop, they take them for testing and will mean 2 weeks without a PC which I am trying to avoid. Thanks in advance
  9. Are you using VR? 11.20 is for VR and is not stable yet. Neither the ixeg nor the ffA320 fully support VR either.
  10. The FF developer advised against direct comparisons as the two products simulated different series of MCDU and other items, so the FSL Airbus documentation should be good to go but be mindful of the differences in operation. I recall seeing a video of the two products side by side as the FSL model has been the benchmark for many simmers....to be honest they both look great...I noticed setting take off trim is the one major difference in functionality...it has caught me out many times in the FF.
  11. for those wondering about systems fidelity....this is a video of Beta version with a real Airbus Pilot as a guest.
  12. For those of you who are new to this bird.....this is a series of videos made by Jon Fly...with a special guest....one of the main developers of the A320...lots of insights and tips for using the product.
  13. It has all operation laws simulated. Systems are deeply simulated as well.. Last update I did, it still did not have custom failure controls....BUT....one flight i did, out of EDDT i hit a flock of birds on climb and lost engine two. I started to lose hydraulics and associated systems, engine shut down and it went to alternate law..I provided the data to the developer and the got an explanation for every system...it is not a single layer of system, things are built to coordinate with each other just like a real aircraft. Yes I did get ECAM alerts, but at the time the developer stated he was working on adding ALL ECAM alerts that exist in the real A320, he just wasnt finished yet. I am not sure if it is completed now, I will have a look later today
  14. During the beta we had access to this site for documentation. Docs: http://www.avsimrus.com/f/aviation-documents-15/?search=A320&sopt_mode=or&folder=15&s This is also a good base. FMS: http://www.737ng.co.uk/airbusfms.pdf Dont forget this aircraft is fully modelled and licensed....the actual Airbus manuals work really well. I invested in Capt Mike Ray's guide to the A320 and it is 100% spot on. All bugs reported were based on the Airbus manuals, and corrections or clarifications were also given quoting official Airbus manuals and performance data. It is an impressive bit of kit. As for tutorial, they did state at the beginning there would not be one. This product is aimed at systems simulation. To quote them "if you need a tutorial to use a systems simulator then this is not the product for you"..
  15. the Australian FIR has a few good ones....my favorite was by a good friend, RG.....go to Skyvector.com and look up "PUDYA"...and read the waypoints along the FIR border to the South-SouthEast.... Also the approach points for rwy 19....over Moreton bay...."Leaky" Boats" "Sinnk"
