  1. It’s going to be a new sim, using the DCS World platform in some form or another.
  2. IGEX 737 community would welcome a 737 from PMDG for sure, would sell well, I'm guessing much better than the DC-6. Can't wait for this bird to arrive in XP11!
  3. Never thought I would be too old for a forum, 40 years old and now I find it a complicated piece of software! Annoying as heck pop ups, symbols and options everywhere, far too many stickies, threads getting joined together, deleted etc. Not even attempted the signature bit, so just leave it empty. Time to go and fly a bit with my warm slippers on!
  4. Guess 75 views and no opinions says only one thing. Will give this aircraft a miss for now.
  5. Hi all I'm considering buying the this little aircraft but I am struggling to find any feedback from the community. There are a few youtube videos and some official reviews, I am more looking for info on the flight dynamics of the aircraft. I see the odd comment about some negative feedback but I can't really find any feedback at all. Favourite light aircraft at the moment is the Comanche, it obviously won't be up to that standard, nothing really is, but it has to feel good and fly correctly. It's at a resonable price too and might be cheaper if there is a sale on at the end of the month like last year. Thanks for any info.
  6. I have never used FSUIPC for controls, I have a CH flight stick and Pro throttle, very low null zones, high sensitivity, the comanche controls are perfect, trims nicely and flies the glideslope precisely without porpoising or pilot induced oscillation. The only problem I have had with it so far was forgetting to remove the pitot cover, half way down the runway I aborted and went off onto the grass at the other end. First mishap in FSX for years, wont't forget again!
  7. Just bought it, first flight was superb, this will take some beating now! 30 years of flight simming and this is a peach! Flew from 65S Bonners Ferry down to Sandpoint in the Realair Legacy, install the 250 and took it back. What a difference. The sound quality is way above average, the interactive menus work really well, the flight dynamics seem spot on. I had elevator issues with previous A2A releases but in this it works perfect out the box. Takeoff was eventful, go bounced around all over the place, maybe due to ASN but the aircraft seems to be much more dynamic in the weather, which is what it should be, too many aircraft in FSX feel like they are flying on rails. Cruise was fun, had ten mins to hunt around the cockpit and learn where things are a bit better. Approach was straight forward, down to 85 mph, full flap, trim one back from neutral, again the aircraft was moving around in the air quite a bit, cut the throttle and felt for the ground, short gear meant a bit of a delay but managed a real greaser on my first landing. Only negative points (or remarks). - Aircraft creeps forward with parking brake on, tried increased park brake scaler to above 1, still to test that. - Overhead view F12 has gone, shows wing flap view now. Please A2A don't mess up the top down F12 view, hated Opus for doing it, how do I get it back? - Right had seat has a strange head tilted forward orientation and the panning is a slower rate than left seat. No big deal, Realair can have left and right seat identical so why not this one. Got the manual on google drive, now to go read it on my ipad. Congrats on a top notch aircraft!
  8. But yet, when someone asks for a GA recommendation in the fsx forum, everyone shouts Carenado! They have about 25 aircraft released where PMDG have 5! Something has to give and it shows. I stopped buying their stuff over a year ago, it amuses me that people still complain with each release even though each aircraft is probably a few weeks of development before punting it out the hanger!
  9. I am no expert with it, I use route finder within Simbrief to make the plan (unless it's a common route I can get from onother site), then I do my own SIDS and STARS once in the aircraft. The takeoff and landing runway is normally easy as you can check this in ASN while putting the info into Simbrief.
  10. I use Simbrief, saves the flight plan as an rte file, dump the PDF in google drive and open it in my second pc. Free and uncomplicated.
  11. I have the unregistered version installed. Never really understood that programme but presummed that nobody can use FSX with any addons unless it was installed, please correct me. This issue is just for info, it is not a problem for me at all and I can easily live with the error message when exiting. Cheers Iain
  12. Same problem here, only after SP1. Happens with and without ASN active. Just loaded the aircraft at EDDP, programmed the FMC for a route for another day when I have time, exited and crashed. Problem Event Name: APPCRASH Application Name: fsx.exe Application Version: 10.0.61637.0 Application Timestamp: 46fadb14 Fault Module Name: kernel32.dll Fault Module Version: 6.1.7601.18409 Fault Module Timestamp: 53159a85 Exception Code: c0000005 Exception Offset: 00011359 OS Version: 6.1.7601.

  13. Happy New Year, this is great news. You know you supported me on my dislike of the thump effect but I could never get rid of the effect without break something else, so I fly pre patch, which is fine, I can fly around a bit faster than the aircraft should allow, but I miss the new night lighting effect! With the new upgrade version all will be resolved! I´ve been flying the B60 much more lately around Orbx NA land, with FSGRW it is simply amazing, some great turbulence (unlike what I have experienced with ASN so far), I still love the effect where if you cut the engine quickly at flare, the nose bites back. Credit card is waiting Rob!
