About Me

  • About Me
    Active RW GA and 787 pilot.
  1. AEROSOFT APPROACH A320

    Pressing LOC only arms the localizer. Press APPR.
  2. I use the VantEdge Yoke System and for rudder pedals the FlightLink Rudder Control Module. They are not inexpensive but as a RW (large and small) pilot it was worth the price. I saw you didn't like Saitek but I use two side by side. I like to fly a wide range of planes and I swap out the knobs to fit the plane.
  3. All those landing look like typical real word landings. No one nails the touch down spot every time. I think the third landing was the best. You did float a bit on the first two ( I think I have the sequence right). Even the ones you floated on looked just like what I see in real life. Even your control movements seemed normal. It's easy to start moving the yoke around too much. The best you can do is noticed you are "stirring" the stick/yoke and force yourself to stop it. I rate what I saw in your video as extremely realistic.
  4. 2D Panel called "Light Sensor"

    I have the same window in the P3D version. Google pmdg light sensor. It seems to be in all the PMDG airplanes or at least many.
  5. The 747 is insanely easy to grease on. I flew the 737 for over 8500 hours and recently left the 320 after 3300 hours. The 737 (300 and 500) were fairly predictable. The 320, I could make a number of smooth landings then bam! The 747 landing pretty mechanically, I listen to the radio altimeter call outs. At 50' start pulling the power off, at 30' start flaring, but not a whole lot, at 10' feet, hold the site picture, which requires a tad bit of back pressure. What I noticed in the sim was you knew you touched down when you heard the spear brake moving back. It's has a loudish servo. I've done 8 landing so far in real life. It was just like the sim. 7 greasers and one so-so. The so-so was my fault. I landed flaps 30 instead of the normal 25, it was windy and the runway was SFO 19L. All a bit non standard. I fixated on the aiming spot and didn't change my focus down the runway in the flare. What I'm trying to say is this simulation is pretty realistic. I think real life is a bit easier to grease it on.
  6. EZdok V2 Released!

    I think the password is: ezdok-camera I think I saw this in the ezdok studio under online help.
  7. Alabeo PA-44 Seminole released!

    Hi Ed, I use the PA-44 in P3Dv3.4. It works great. Scott
  8. Alabeo PA-44 Seminole released!

    I'd like to turn off the flight director. I can't find an off switch. Any ideas? >turning off the Radio Master then back on does it< It seems there should be another way. >There is. I didn't notice the FD/AP MASTR switch below the GPS/ Dooh!
  9. P3DV3 not opening

    The flight that the sim is trying to load my be corrupt. Temporarily remove the files from your computer Documents folder. I use v3 so mine are stored in C:\Users\simflight\Documents\Prepar3D v3 Files. Yours maybe slightly different,
  10. While in cruise flying around 175 knots the pitch attitude on the left ADI is about 5 degrees nose down. The rights side ADI is at 0 degrees. I'm thinking 0 degrees is about right. I couldn't find a pitch adjust for the left ADI. Does anyone else notice this? Thanks Scott
