  1. The only thing I hope that may take PMDG 10 years to cook is a new sim platform. I really hope PMDG is trying to build its own sim platform. One of the main reasons would be to get rid of FSX or P3D limitations regarding flight dynamics and so on. Seriously? 10 years to build A 787 or 757/767 family?... Cheers

    Plan Direct vs Airways

    Many thanks Kyle for your post. Very interesting. Here in old Europe, we can see more countries making free routings available (Italy above FL340) and some central european countries do not have high altitude airways anymore (Hungary, Austria etc...).
  3. In which direction should I look to correct this? What could cause this? I did another try with the GE variant. At 80 KT, increase in TAT associated with an increase of N1 until 400' AGL. Then N1 decreases back to the green target.
  4. Hi James, Positive. Product up-to-date. I see in the changelog that panelstates prior to the last update (october) should be removed. I use one that I created prior to the last update. Could that be the reason? I will make a new one out of the default. And lets see what happens. Thanks Best regards
  5. Set Override to NEVER and did a quick test. I advanced the throttle to the programmed N1 setting. Problem still there. TO N1 was 105,5%, went to 107,5% before setting back to normal at 400ft (GE variant). Any clue? Thanks
  6. Hello Walter and Kyle, Thank you for your insight I will try and report. Best regards
  7. Hi James, Yes that's exactly whats happening. I do not use any separate throttle hardware, only a joystick. It is properly calibrated but I will try with the keyboard next time. When ready to takeoff, I usually advance throttle to appr. 70%N1 then press TOGA and when the blue line of the physical position of my throttle handle appears I go full throttle and leave it there till TOD. Is that correct? I have the A/T MANUAL OVERRIDE option to IN HOLD MODE ONLY. Don't know if that is relevant. Best regards
  8. Hello, I dont know what went wrong with my profile signature but I have my full name there. My bad, I misunderstood the subject of the topic. Nonetheless, my 747 is up-to-date and I still see an increase in thrust during takeoff roll on all engine variants. Best regards
  9. Hello, Interesting topic. Definitely something unusual with the TO thrust management. At Narita, planned TO thrust setting was TO+56°C and N1 of 99,9%. During accel, N1 went as far as 101,9% then settled back to 101,2% during initial climb prior to reach THR RED height. That was with the GE variant. Best regards

    Line on NGX 700

    Seeing the same thing here. Hope a quick simple fix will come.

    NGX behaviour post updates

    Hi, That was my impression. It used to be a smooth and perfectly coordinated. Now it feels like there is a lag and it is definetly not smooth. I forgot to say this is the FSX version. Cheers

    NGX behaviour post updates

    Hi, I saw your topic and watched the video, it does not seem to be the same thing. Best regards

    NGX behaviour post updates

    Hello everyone, I am seeing something new with the NGX during manual turns. This happened along with the bunch of new installers we've got recently, everything was fine before. Passing 20° of bank, the plane gets out of coordination for one second then gets back coordinated. It feels like kind of kick which does not seem/feel right. Just to be complete, I fly without autocoordination, no weather program or FSUIPC. Just wondering if anybody experienced something similar and what was the most probable cause for this to happen. Again, I fly the NGX regularly and had never experienced this before. Happy flying

    TOPCAT takeoff performance table

    I have seen situations where Topcat was very conservative and computed lower than expected max TO weights, even at airports like LIME (Bergamo). I find it to be very pessimistic as soon as the airport is 1000ft amsl and/or there is obstacles and/or the runway is short. Sometimes you would not be able to get out of places like Skiathos or TNCM... And this was checked against the FPPMs I have.
