  1. The Cera models do work fine in v5 and their AS365 is excellent.
  2. Hi - I just asked about this on the Sim Outhouse P3D forum to see if their users can verify the AS365 issues in V5, as I don’t have that version of the sim yet pending a system upgrade. I used the helo routinely without issue in 4.5. A user there claimed to have no yaw or other controllability issues with the AS365 in P3Dv5. They did say the lights may need some work to add a dynamic spot point, and an aircraft cfg edit will enable proper function of the autopilot, but they overall emphasized no major issues. The user also encountered no other issues with the other Cera models except they didn’t test the Bell 222 yet. For the sake of troubleshooting - Is the AS365 new to you in general, and can you verify that all appropriate systems are on? Namely, the hydraulics and the SAS systems (and that the AP is off). Thanks, Sean K.
  3. All, For P3Dv4 users, I have again asked Alabeo if they can recompile the 32-bit DLL for the Cutlass and other addons (such as the Waco biplane). The reason for asking again is seeing that the Carenado side did it for the equally old Commander 114, which is a default airplane in P3Dv4.5. In the Gauges folder of the simulator, there is a "RadioC114x64.dll" which means that they recompiled it, and it's apparent in the sim that these extremely similar gauges work for the Commander just fine. I tried replacing the broken Cutlass gauges with the Commanders, but there is some lighting and gauge fit errors due to the different modeling, so I asked Alabeo again for a justification as to why they can't do this when Carenado can. (Nearly the same gauges, for an addon of the same/similar age).
  4. Alexander Metzger created the FDE for both the Sibwings model and the Aerosoft one, for the record. Agreed upon the lack of update info for the Aerosoft one, but luckily the new Sibwings/AT Sims iteration will appear which will likely be objectively superior.
  5. Alabeo has definitively stated via a support email to be that they will not be fixing the Cutlass: Support (Alabeo) Dec 7, 18:38 -03 Greetings, The technology that C172RG Cutlass has (10 years ago) is not compatible with new technologies that P3Dv4 uses, that is the reason why we can not update it. Regards, Alabeo.
  6. Just reinstalled the Robinson R66 in P3Dv4.3 and noticed that the VOR gauge is non-functional. Can anyone else confirm? I can change the compass card on the gauge using the OBS knob, I can tune a VOR frequency on the radio, and I can receive the appropriate Morse signal through the radio, but I have no response from the VOR needles. I have tried multiple VORs across multiple locations. I have also ensured that I'm not in some hidden inadvertent "GPS" mode with the avionics (despite lacking a GPS), and I have confirmed VOR functionality with other aircraft in the same region. No response to an ILS beam either. I sent a report highlighting this to Carenado today, but also hope to confirm my observations with the general user base too.
  7. Just a heads up that Neo Leung, who is associated with China Leaf, has been covering a lot of liveries lately and has uploaded them to the P3D repaints section of the library. These include Northwest Airlink in both old (red) and newer (silver), American Eagle, various Japanese and Thai liveries, and Delta Connection. This is in addition to Murchison's NZ and Asian liveries, as well as EDRM's European liveries on his own website.
  8. I did some additional snooping following a reinstall. It looks like the LITE version of the aircraft has only a two position switch (alongside all problems with the pitot heat) as I outlined with my previous screenshot. The normal/full version of the aircraft has the three position switch and so far it does seem to work correctly. How frustrating. I guess it's the full version for me!
  9. Sorry for the delayed response. Just tried my version again of Version 1.1 of the Cheyenne III and my switches only have two positions: OFF or PITOT/STALL. I have tried left clicking, right clicking, middle mouse button clicking, scrolling, etc. When the switch is in the position of PITOT/STALL, my tubes still ice up in icing conditions when using software such as Activesky in real-world conditions, as well as with pre-built P3Dv4 themes. Additionally, Carenado has acknowledged the issue to me in email and said that they will look at patching it in a future update (if that ever happens). I have included a screenshot of my switches in the link below as an illustrative example. When in PITOT/STALL mode, the test lights on the left side wall of the cockpit light up when pressed indicating that there should be power for heating purposes, but again, still have problems with ice. https://i.imgur.com/NHxWNG6.png Thanks.
  10. I've turned on both left and right switches. Additionally, at least on my model, each switch (left/right) only has two positions: OFF, or Pitot/Stall. Again, I've utilized all deicing / heat switches in the aircraft, and just confirmed again moments ago that the pitot probes still ice over, resulting in airspeed indication loss.
  11. Using 1.1 in P3Dv4. Flew through visible moisture north of Seattle in temps conducive to icing today, and despite the pitot heat indicating ON, the pitot tubes still froze up, which in FSX and P3D mean that the airspeed needle rapidly drops to zero and stays there until warmer temps are introduced. I submitted a support ticket, but encourage others to verify as well. I believe this problem is also present with the F406 Caravan.
  12. For user awareness of what issues exist with this model. PLEASE also report any bugs to Carenado via email as well. Don't assume that someone else already did (and even if they did, it doesn't hurt to add another voice of concern). My list so far... The standby attitude indicator show an approximately 4 degree nose down situation when the plane is in level flight or on the ground. This issue was previously experienced by their Navajo and Alabeo's 404. Unfortunately, the standby indicator is not adjustable, so we'll have to see if Carenado fixes it. The vertical speed indicator (VSI) seems to show a slight, approximately 30-50 foot decent when on level ground. It's not very noticeable due to the incrementation of the reference lines on the gauge (in hundreds) but one can see that the needle rests slightly below zero on a flat surface. These two issues have been reported to Carenado. Recieved a generic "form letter" response as follows: --- Greetings, Thank you for your valuable feedback. We'll consider it to include as a modification on the future version we will release for the aircraft. ---- -Sean
