  1. If your ac panel has a 3 way switch (OFF/TAXI/LNDG) like the TBM 930, try this workaround: Landing light ON : LANDING LIGHTS ON Landing light OFF : LANDING LIGHTS OFF / TAXI LIGHTS OFF This should move the toggle in the cockpit to the OFF position when switching the landing lights off. The problem is not with the Bravo, but in the way the switch is coded on the panel. Hope this helps.
  2. New to this forum but interested in anything Phenom 300 that I can use prior to training--esp Garmin 1000.  Can someone please help? Thank you for helping a newbie.

  3. The place to adjust the sensitivities for the three axis is the flight_model.cfg file located in the [yourdrive:]\WpSystem\S-1-5-21-3080998185-3697329459-3857506411-1013\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\Packages\Official\OneStore\asobo-aircraft-da62\SimObjects\Airplanes\Asobo_DA62 (using the DA as an example). Look for the Flight_Tuning section. There you will find the values for elevator, aileron and rudder effectiveness. As a start point, I reduced the control surfaces effectiveness to 70% of the default value, and slightly increased the stability factors to 0.40 (from 0.33 in the DA62. The trim effectiveness were also reduced to 70% of their original values. These adjustments eliminated the twitchiness of the control inputs and made the DA62 and the Icon A5 flyable again. [FLIGHT_TUNING] cruise_lift_scalar = 1 parasite_drag_scalar = 1 induced_drag_scalar = 1.5 flap_induced_drag_scalar = 2 elevator_effectiveness = 0.7 ;Def 1 elevator_maxangle_scalar = 1 aileron_effectiveness = 0.7 ;Def 1 rudder_effectiveness = 1.4 ;Def 2 rudder_maxangle_scalar = 0.5 pitch_stability = 0.40 ;Def 0.33 roll_stability = 0.40 ;Def 0.33 yaw_stability = 0.40 ;Def 0.33 elevator_trim_effectiveness = 0.7 ;Def 1 aileron_trim_effectiveness = 0.7 ;Def 1 rudder_trim_effectiveness = 0.7 ;Def 1 hi_alpha_on_roll = 0 hi_alpha_on_yaw = 0 p_factor_on_yaw = 0 torque_on_roll = 0 gyro_precession_on_roll = 0 gyro_precession_on_yaw = 0 engine_wash_on_roll = 0 ; Torque effect Adjusting the controller sensitivity only decreases the sensitivity at the lower end of travel, then increasing it at the upper end. Unfortunately these changes have to be made for each aircraft. I only tested them on the two aircraft above, and while each aircraft flight model is unique, the values above might be a good starting point. Save a copy of your changes, as these files might be overwritten during a future update.
  4. For those Rex WX Advantage Radar users, MilViz released the P3d v5 radar yesterday. It is not a free upgrade, but MilViz is offering the upgrade for $10.00 to Reowners of the previous version. Only catch is that you must request the discount prior to purchase (via e-mail), as it is not retroactive. Make sure to include your version and current serial number. They were very quick in responding with a discount code (30 minutes in my case).
  5. Dave, You are still using the old Herblot's WX radar gauge in the [Vcockpit03] section. This will not work in P3D v5 gauge00=RolasnRadar!ORadGauge, 50,76,314,178, sweep|icing. If there is an updated version of this gauge for P3D v5, then make sure that the names for the container file (RolasnRadar) and the gauge (ORadGauge) are the same as the V3. Jorge
  6. The landing, taxi and exterior lights are built into the model file and cannot be fixed. Only Carenado.can fix the problem.
  7. The latest version of the mod (V4) has an enhanced AP function which will solve this problem. PM me for details.
  8. Try Flight Simulator Logbook Editor (64 bit) at mouseaviator.com. It works with all FSX and P3D logbooks, and will allow you to import previous version log files. It will flag corrupt entries and allow you to fix them. My logbook has over 4k entries from 2004 to date (FSX and P3d v,1 - 5), and this program is great for editing and cleaning up your entries. The Logbook Editor is payware, but for around $10.00 it is a must have insurance policy. .
  9. Hi Jfrex,

    This question could be asked before.

    Why is there so much interest in GTN 750, is the functionality better GPS than  Garmin G1000?

  10. Hi. I am using your GTN mode with the RXP GTN 750 in the Carenado DA62.  I cannot seem to acquire an altitude preselect.  My FLC button only flashes on then immediately back to off if pressed.  Preselecting an altitude and then using VS and nose up or down gets me into VS, but I go right through the preselected altitude.  Any thoughts or directions?

      Frank,

      Send me a personal email address and I will send you the latest version of the DA62 mod.

      Thank you.  Do you have a summary of changes at all.

  11. Adrian, Just tested the buttons in the stock Carenado Phenom 300, and they all work fine as long as battery switches are on. You might be missing a gauge in your panel.cfg, or worse, in your gauges folder. If you have an original panel.cfg backup, try loading the aircraft with that one. Installing some add-ons like a GTN750 gauge, will make a backup before overwriting your file. Last recourse if you cannot make it work, do a clean reinstall, and try it before adding any add-ons. Good luck, Jorge
  12. Adrian, The white bar indicates that the button is pushed in, no bar means it is off. The Pusher Cutout button disables the Stall Warning Pusher System SWPS, which pushes the yoke forward in a stall. Jorge
  13. In the Speed knob, a left click will switch the IAS/M mode, and a right click will capture actual airspeed into selected airspeed. However There is no automatic switching. Hope this helps.
  14. Hi Jorge

    How can I obtain a copy of the "updated" GTN-750 for the EMB-300?

    My email is "richardschmidt27@gmail.com"

    Have a nice day!

    Regards
