    Beta Preview - 747-8i Over New Zealand

    Can I have a look so you guys can fix all the errors before release? 😛

    Nice! Is the new Lufthansa livery finished yet?

    Q400 in P3Dv4.3

    Did some quick tests myself and all seems to be working in 4.3

    Problem with assigning brakes via the external interface

    Thanks, this works perfectly! No idea why the CP was showing a correct logic with a wrong assignment though.

    No Magenta LNAV Routing Line anymore after DTO

    If that happens you should first of all clear all discontinuities and then g DTO the next waypoint you see on the ND. (Or the once that is active on the FMS NAV page in magenta).

    Q400 in P3Dv4.3

    Haven't updated yet myself, since I want to make sure everything is compatible first. But would be nice to know regarding the Dash.

    This is strange, since a DTO to a FIX/WPT usually fixed a disapeared flightplan. Can you take some pictures of the FMS and ND maybe?

    Rudder with HOTAS THRUSTMASTER

    Well, then as described above replace the Rz axis with your desired axis - being the Z axis. The setup of the external controls for the Dash is very individual.
  9. While trying to assign the main wheel brakes to my pedals via the external interface I came across the following problem. I used the following lines to assign the brakes to my hardware pedals. J0_Y=FlightControls_->sensors.BrakeL0_ADC J0_X=FlightControls_->sensors.BrakeR0_ADC This at first seems to work and I can see my brake movement on the flight control page of the control panel. I can also assign minimum values for the brakes so they only get activated past a certain application level. For instance using the value of 1000 or 2000, since the max value is around 65500. Now, when I'm in the sim and try to taxi by applying power the plane is stuck to the ground (yes the parking brake is off of course and I am able to disengage it by stepping on the brakes real quick). The weird thing is, that when I slightly apply some brakes the planes actually starts rolling, when I let go again the brakes seem to grip again, which isn't represented in th control panel. Am I missing something here? Also, when I assign the brakes via P3D they work just fine. Only not via the external interface.

    Ground Steerring

    No idea if anyone is aware of this but you can assign the steering axis via the external control interface of the Q400. Simply select the spoiler axis in the control panel first and assign the following in the .mjc84ini I use the twist pedal on my Thrustmaster throttles for the tiller as it pretty much resembles a tiller 1:1. You also don't need to assign any spoiler axis within the sim for it to work, selecting the spoiler axis in the control panel simply allows the interface to use any axis of your hardware to control the tiller. J2_Rz=FlightControls_->sensors.Tiller_ADC

    Rudder with HOTAS THRUSTMASTER

    So you are trying to use the twist function of your joystick for rudder, correct? Then try the following assignement. J0_Rz=FlightControls_->sensors.Rudder0_ADC of course the first J[X] term and the axis needs to be set according to your device.

    PMDG Announced Global Flight Operations at FSE 2018

    Just reading through this and....wow, never thought people would get so wound up about a flightsim addon/tool. Nobody is forcing you to buy it or use it. Like it? Good. Don't like it? Fine too. Also, why should anyone take any of this personal? It has already reached some sort of "religious" level. Just because it's different from what we've used to seing from PMDG doesn't mean it won't be good. Like come on, it's currently only in alpha.... Now, I have two questions for the PMDG devs: Will customers who own the 747, 777 etc. get basic ACARS functions such as METAR/TAF and arrival ATIS info for free? Will PDC/CPDLC work via the MFD/ECL interface as it should in the real airplane? And will the DC-6 cover these "persistent" state-sharing options as well? That one would be really fun to share with your friends, since it has to be flown properly and taken good care of (maintained properly). And while we're at it, doesnt all this data-sharing lay a good foundation for some sort of shared cockpit?

    Guess the secret project at FlightSimExpo (Poll)

    Anyway, my final guess is a RJ (E190 or CRJ), since it would fill a gap in their product line and there are no decent renditions of those airplanes for P3Dv4 - the AS one is about as useful as a chocolate teapot. Also, anyone remember the Dash-8 100/200 they started to work on many years ago? 😛 (Just posting this for the record and to see whether I was right after the announcement. 😄
  14. Probably the latter. Gotta love some good flightsim conspiracies. 😛

    Landing wheelie bug report.

    It's not even a hop. I once did a testflight where I experienced this bug, so I went to outside view and the gear was still in "air mode" - so stil just hanging like it would be in the air. The plane was then floating along like on a magic energy cussion lol.
