    F-15 for P3D v4..??

    Milviz has a brand new F15C in development. Milviz already has shown several impressive photo's that show the F15C in an advanced status (look at their new developments forum). Maybe worthwhile to wait for it's release!

    Quickest Way to Clean Your Rig (internally)

    I just opened my computer case to install a new grahics card, but the amount of dust after 4 years was minimal. This is due to the fact that all openings into the case are protected by dust filters.
  3. I logged in to the B55 forum, but could not find a new/recent FDE update for the B55? can you provide more exact info on where to look< Thanks

    A2A Bonanza revisited

    I also noticed this strange behaviour of the very strong left pull after immediate take off. Being a PPL pilot myself and having flown different types of GA planes (with less HP however compared to the Bonanza) I was struck by surprise and asked myself if this left pull was truly realistic. If yes, than to my opinion many take off accidents must have occured! My work around was to make a very shalow initial climb (just as the F16's do (:-)) untill the speed reached > 95 knots and than increased the climb angle by pulling the yoke.

    Best 737 payware?

    I agree that the PMDG737NG is number I, but the iFly737Ng (now with HD textures in and out) definitely is number 2 and getting quite close. It also is a very advanced and realistic simulation.
  6. Having a PPL SEP I regularly fly the Robin DR400, I do fly the 135 HP diesel version with steam gauges. I am very grateful and my compliments go to Aerobask for releasing the Robin with diesel engine. However I would like to make some positive remarks/comments on the current simulated version: - There is way too much vibration of the instrument panel. In reality, despite being a diesel, the engine runs very smoothly and there is hardly any vibration - the wheel fairings are inaccurate compared to the real ones (and to my opinion ugly), actually in real life these are more massive in size - The FADEC A and B simulation test button doesn't work correctly, is not well simulated. When pressing and holding the button first Fadec B is tested (increase and decrease in RPM), next Fadec A (changing RPM) and than the fadec test button needs to be released, test completed. - The Force B switch is not operative - To my experience the power delivered by the engine is indicated in %, not in manifold pressure. Hope that Aerobask despite offering the Robin for free, still will make some updates to make this simulation even better! -

    Cessna C182. What next?

    Flight I Beech King Air, very realistic twin, not too complicated!
  8. Thanks Henry, as your subtitle says: allways in training!
  9. ORBX True Earth NL is truly fantastic, 10 Times beter than Megascenery Earth NL. However this is not true for its airports. The airports of The NL2000 sceneries are much more accurate. Problem However is that the NL2000 apts are allways placed below ORBX in the scenery.config file. Every time P3Dv4 is started the cfg file is reset to ORBX above NL2000.

    Severe lag spikes, using Process Lasso

    Yes Thomasso, I followed the advice, now everything set at "below normal". At this moment almost finalising the return flight and indeed no arrests anymore! Thank you for bringing this up and Patrice for bringing the solution!

    Severe lag spikes, using Process Lasso

    Hi Thomasso, this is what I call true coincidence! Tonight I was making a flight with the F1 B200 (GTN750&650) from KBLI to KHQM. I had seen those arrests frequently in the past months, but never so long lasting, similar as you also describe it. I also use Process Lasso for a long time now and tonight I also observed thast the arrests were simultaneous with the red line coming down in the graph. As the arrests were so pronounced I decided to switch Lasso off and continue flying. To my observations the arrests were much less frequently and also were much shorter in duration (more like stutters). I don't claim yet that the arrests are caused by Lasso, but I will certainly be more critical in using Process Lasso. I am using the freeware version of process Lasso. I am unfortunately not sufficiently skilled into microprecessors and processes to be able to trouble shoot this phenomenon.

    T-38 advanced fliying problems

    I also tried to get competent on landing this plane for several years now, but have the same concerns as Avallillo, the slow speed behaviour of this plane is a killer. I only have PPL SEP 15yrs+ experience, but I talked to two T38 instructor pilots at the Nellis airshow 2017. Those Talon drivers told me that the T38 was easy to fly and establishes very forgiving approach and landing behaviour at speeds around and below 165kts, which is by far NOT the case in the Milviz simulation. The fact that Milviz confirms that T38 drivers testing the simulation also crashed during landings seems to confirm this observation. The T38 is the most nervous and critical Milviz jet (I do own them all) during approach and landing, and for a training airplane that is unusual!
  13. I only have an ASUS GTX660TI and it works great with my LG49" 4K monitor. Obviously I do not have all the sliders to the full right, but still have between 15 and 30 fpm at 4096x2160 and decent quality of plaes and sceneries. Obviously I prefer to install a NVIDIA GTX1080TI, but the current prices are totally insane. Manufactureres of the graphic boards installed with Nvidia chips to my opinion misuse the current market conditions. In addition there is NO competition as all suppliers only offer at premium price levels.

    I also had all kinds of strange issuess with the Majestic Dash after the Win10 Update. Also uninstalled and reinstalled, now working great again. Jan

    P40 Warhawk for FSW

    The P40 Warhawk for FSW is absolutely gorgeous inside and out. However flying this beast is a different story. Much more finetuning of the FDE is needed to make this plane truly flyable. First of all one needs more than 3000 rpm to get this plane moving, taxying therefore is more or less impossible. Additionally in the air the plane is very unstable and again response to the controler inputs is over aggressive and even erratic. It is very easy to get this plane in an uncontrolable unusual attitude, resulting in a non-recoverable spin and crash. Compared to this plane the P40 of A2A is a dream to fly,
