  1. Hello Brian, I just checked in my Orbx Aus V2 and it has bridges in that area. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-Tm2Erto-iQe9q5rqdd6SylO2zBztlqx/view?usp=sharing Thanks, Gary
  2. I use button control and at 1500ft I use the pitch wheel to reduce pitch as described in the pdf training notes on the maddog website, this enables me to speed up to get FO to move on to flaps up stage. "Reaching the desired height for noise abatement (e.g. 3000ft), accelerate towards FLAP/SLAT retract speed by selecting half of the current climb rate (VERT SPD) via the pitch wheel on the FGCP. Once acceleration process is complete continue climb-out with IAS/MACH, EPR LIM or VNAV." Obviously there is still some minor input from yourself but it works well with button control.
  3. Really enjoyed reading this, what a great trip!
  4. I always enjoy reading your posts Carl, your DC-6 stories inspire me! I just did PAWD-PANC in my everts colours in VR, was short but very nice. I've had the oculus rift for almost a year but don't use it that often (still mostly fly with monitor) and I forget how good it is until I put it back on, those Alaskan mountains look amazing! I only recently bought the PMDG 744 too and did my first VR take off tonight, again out of PANC 7R, I was surprised how well my system handled the 744, VR, Orbx and Aerosoft PANC, good times for us simmers at the moment! Need to pick up the 747-8 next but back to the DC-6 and VOR navigation first! Homer to Yakutat I think..
  5. Yeah I am interested to know this too, thought I read the 744,777 and 737 will get it but did not see the DC-6 mentioned? Would like to see it implemented.
  6. No need to apologise, thanks for the update and looking forward to your tutorial!
  7. Thanks for the heads up, will be getting this one.
  8. @KORDATC - just wondering if the tutorial is completed? I would love to be able to use it! I did not have the original maddog, is there anywhere I can get the original tutorial included with that version?
  9. Thanks Carl, I am going to try that DME arc approach into PAYA, not sure how smooth the arc will be though! I am doing most of my flights without the GPS now and really enjoying it! Thanks for the information Alex. The 1.10 patch for Anchorage is available now with the extended runway and hopefully has sorted Dan's other concerns too. Just downloading now..
  10. Hi Alex, I have watched your video a few times and have been trying to wean myself off the AFE and using the power settings from the charts. Just made a lovely flight from Anchorage to Yakutat, flew using victor airways on VLOC all the way and then made a GPS approach into PAYA runway 11 but flew it manually. Made a good landing and speeds were good, was pretty pleased with myself! Have 50+ hours in the DC-6 now and watching your video has helped me with my landings, quite happy if you make some more! Out of interest, what was was the gross weight on that video, did the aeroplane have no payload? I love the DC-6. Back on topic, I am enjoying the PANC scenery, and I hope they sort out the problems Dan has highlighted, and then I hope ORBX make a region for the rest of Alaska :-)
  11. Enjoyed watching this, better approach than mine are, but not surprising from one of the developers!! :-) Just bought the P3D V4 of PANC a few days ago and enjoying it!
