    Fuel Management in Proline

    Have to laugh. I am a fan of Carenado planes. They start them. And then kind folks here have to "finish" them on this forum!

    Superb work Ron - many thanks for this!

    Golden Eagle

    Really pleased Ron you now have this aircraft, that some more paints may be in the works and to see this discussion revived. By a long stretch my current favorite piston twin in the sim. I give a strong second for the suggested paint of N353WS!

    PC12 - Start Procedure ?

    My core favorite sim aircraft these days seem to be (in no particular order) the PC-12, B200, Turbo Commander and Golden Eagle. Of these, the PC-12 cold and dark start is dead easy. Both battery switches to on; ignition to continuous; press start button; wait until 12% turbine rpm; move condition lever from idle/cut to low or high condition. Generators on; pitot heat on. Other usual pre flight stuff. Go fly.

    New FDE exclusively for P3D available

    Done that one in a Twotter - as a passenger - unforgettable steep angled approach followed by a stomach wrenching flare out. Pilots high fiving each other afterwards gave one pause . .

    First impressions

    Version 1.3 is there on Carenado's site. Not yet filtered through to PC Aviator. I had a dozen back and forths with them to catch up the Carenado C337 to P3Dv4 recently.
  8. Have the F1 GTN750 installed where the default GPS was. Would like to place a GNS530 directly underneath where the comms radios and DME are positioned. The VC panel bmp shows blank spots for placing gauges here, however, commenting out the radios gauges in the panel.cfg only disables these gauges. They still are there. Is it correct that you can't get rid of these because these are 3D gauges embedded in the interior model?
  9. RESOLVED: just to report no longer experiencing this anomaly - possibly as a result of installing Bill's v.5 mods.

    690B MOD v5.0

    Just a note to thank Bill for this terrific set of mods. Functions and flies very differently from the default. Really transforms the aircraft and makes it a "Carenado AC690B v.2" in my view. The Dash 10 engines really make this a hot ship.

    690B MOD v5.0

    Now have the v5 mods - thanks Bill! Just starting to check through it but immediately notice the different AP will not power up - at least using the pop up gauge. Using P3Dv4.3. Anyone else find this? UPDATE: have installed the XML Tools (said I already had it but overwrote it with the latest one from FS Developers. No change. Commented out the new AP with the default in both the pop up and VC entries. As with the new AP, the default AP refuses to switch on using the mouse or hitting the Z key. It just flips on and back off again.

    Hey Bill, I have PM'd you here to ask for your mod having just purchased the 690B (for P3Dv4). Thanks and regards, expat
