  1. Great!! I just bought me a "Back Seat Driver" Thank you Bryan. I've been looking forward to your completing RAAS. Congratulations! I know it will be a big hit, especially since it works for all of the major flight sim formates. Now you have to see if you can make it work for X-Plane 10. I believe it is gaining a lot of momentum with JRollin's CJ 200, the recent release of the Boeing 777 Professional and the new 727 that will be released pretty soon.
  2. I haven't installed my P3D yet. I'm trying to learn as much as possible from these forums first, so I don't screw it all up. When I do install it, I will certainly want to use my FS2Crew software. I hope Bryan can get everything working good.
  3. Bryan, I think it is a wonderful idea that you include both versions. Sometimes I don't feel like speaking and will just use the button version and sometimes I use the voice.
  4. I'm not saying it as being good or bad, it's just what they do with all of their paints. Most aircraft would have the same kind of dirt stains anyway, but I just wanted them to make the stain from the jetway seals correctly on the NGX. The way they have it now just looks funny because it is not possible.They make the rivets, stains and dirt for an aircraft type, like the 747-400 and keep the Photoshop layers, then they use those same layers for all of their paints of that type. It is what they have to do because they don't make a lot of money on each paint. It would cost them a fortune to make custom dirt stains for each aircraft and no one would want to pay that much money for a paint.
  5. I don't blame you at all. Get some sleep, then fly, fly, fly...we can wait (PMDG trained us well). Just let us know when they are ready.
  6. I love McPhat's paints, but they did get the stain from the jetway seal on the main entrance of the NGX wrong. I told them about it, but it was never corrected. That stain should be offset to the front of the door because the door opens inside the seal. The way that they have it, the door would not open.They make one set of layers with the dirt, chips and grime, then they use that layer on all of the aircraft because it would be way too hard to create different dirt patterns for each livery. Wow, now that looks like a real Boeing. Great work!!
  7. Wow! We got a new McPhat Studios forming here! Is this Joker's Wild Studios?Ryan is right though. I noticed with McPhat's paints for the NGX, that the rivets are a little too exagerated also. When you look at new NGs on the Boeing website, you can hardly see the rivets.You're quite the painter! Surely one of the best out there. I know that I appreciate all of the paints you make available very much. A BIG thank you.
  8. I had the problem and this worked great for me. Thank you Ryan.
  9. This looks great! I would like to have it. Thank you.
  10. Peter, I have my G-737 working perfectly with FSUIPC. I will sit down and try to write a little guide to setting it up the way that I have it. There may be other ways to do it, but this works perfectly for me. I'm really impressed with this Throttletek G-737. I could see some areas for improvement, but it is a really nice unit.Bob
  11. Hello Peter,I just got my Throttletek G737 quadrant this week and I like it a lot. It looks and feels great and adds so much to the experience of flying the NGX.I have no trouble with any of the controllers or buttons. Everything works perfect with the NGX, even the engine start levers. There is no problem with the spoilers or flaps. All in all, it is a great unit.I had a problem with the little plastic handles on the engine start levers coming loose, but I replaced the small screw with a small wood screw and put some "Gorilla Glue" on them. They won't be coming loose any time soon.Also, the little levers inside the unit are attached with just a small screw and a nut. There is a need to either use a small ny-lock nut, or double nut the screw to keep the little nuts from eventually backing out. This is an easy fix and won't be any problem, but other than that, it is a very well made controller. It is quite large and is supposed to be a 1 to 1 scale. I'm not sure why Roberto spread the handles out a little more than the real 737 quadrant, it's not a big thing to me. They feel like the right grip to me.The throttle movement is real smooth and with the larger stroke, I have a lot of fine throttle control that is needed for manual landing.Also it is great to have the TO/GA switches and Auto-throttle cut-off switches where they are supposed to be in real life.I am quite happy with the purchase because it does work perfectly with the NGX (mine is setup using FSUIPC) and it is a great improvement over the CH throttle quadrant that I was using.http://www.throttletek.com/
  12. Wow! That "Portland Timbers" livery is beautiful.
  13. I love the simple installer and you have a real good looking list of liveries for the release also. I'm very excited.Can we load the livery into the installer without installing it? I mean will it store the liveries right in the installer so we can load them before we use it, then if we see that we haven't used one for a while, can we uninstall it and just hold it in que within the Livery Manager for installing later on?
  14. Peter, I'll let you know when I get mine. There shouldn't be any issues since it is plug and play and Windows just recognizes it like any other gaming controller, same as the CH Throttle. You can set it up in the default FSX Options, but it is much better to use FSUIPC.
  15. Actually Roberto custimized a set for a customer and added an extra throttle in between the two handels to work for a B727, so I'm sure if that bit of separation is a problem, it can be adjusted.Here is a review that one of the customers posted on the Throttletek forum:Throttletek Review
  16. I just ordered the Throttle G737 and it is "plug and play". It is the least expensive throttle quadrant that I could find that replicates the real 737. The next one up that I seen costs about $1300 and looks much less like the real throttle.The G737 can be set up through FSUIPC so it will work on any aircraft simulation.Roberto will clearly tell you all of the costs before you order, but he does charge a 4% Paypal fee (approx. $30) for what Paypal charges him. When he knows your address, he will give you shipping cost.He guarantees the unit for a year. Throttletek G737
  17. Bryan, I have to say that a good review of Voice Command is well deserved. It's just a great product that makes computer flying commercial airliners, a load of fun. Thank you.
