    some questions about using CP

    I'm still confused; what zoom controls? I have them turned off in CP I'm telling you, I cannot zoom when using the onboard cameras but I CAN zoom while using the outside cameras. So, again where/what do I remove? I have; and it doesn't talk in detail about removing the default views, I'm not sure how this is an issue because what I have an issue has nothing to do with the outside. Besides, as long as I don't use the same key assignments the a/c views on the outside should be fine.

    which control assignments? I'm using CP outside views (outside) there are some default views like the default spot view that's still available/usable and the different camera attachments that are part of the plane, like wing, right front, etc As I was saying I have no problem being able to zoom using the CP outside views, but the inside/onboard zoom refuses to let me zoom as it instantly keeps resetting.

    BTW I can zoom no problem with the outside cameras but not with the on board cameras... why? It keeps resetting my zoom

    some questions about using CP

    oh yeah I forgot; that I tried the mouse look, hate it and don't like using the mousewheel for zoom... there needs to be other options. I think I have mouse driver software, there a UI that lets me set macros and other keys but I don't know how to implement using a macro for CP to use.
  5. Ok cool; I've heard all the reviews this is great and all and I thought I swore this came with replay capabilities... how disappointing ah but yes its beta... Ok now... one issue I'm not pleased with is I can't zoom whenever I want, I have to create a new camera and set it closer and switch to that camera when I want to see things closer... kind of annoying really I'm used to panning around the VC and zooming in whenever and I can't even pan the usual way (spacebar+mouse, now has to be MB instead. I'd like to also know if there's a way to set how "big" the camera is, or I don't know how you explain it but whenever I get close to the plane part of the model disappears (and that's part of the sim, its been that way for eons through the years of MSFS) the reason I'm asking is I'm wanting to mimic "gopro" mounted and to do that I'd have to set the camera at angles/positions that aren't even realistic because its too close to the airframe and makes it disappear which makes it look funky and weird. One last thing, how can I map my mouse buttons (I have some mouse buttons on my mouse that I'd like to use, and maybe when I get a gaming mouse I'll use that) Otherwise, cool! I like it so far

    How come there's no trial mode for PFPX?

    Yes it was directed at you Ray; I was trying to clarify your comment; and no I would not expect a Boeing profile to work with a Cessna profile but for all intents and purposes; suppose you have a TBM800 profile obviously the fuel burns and climbs are going to be totally different you could modify/copy it for Cessna use??? I'm not saying it should be used for Cessna props, but you might want to use it for long range turbine (prop or jet) use even in the GA category especially going IFR although I understand the software is intended for the bigger aircraft which I definitely intend to use it for but as I pointed out I tend to do freeware most of the time. I think I got the answers I wanted this has been really helpful

    what do you mean by there isn't another template you can use another?? The template can't be copied and made to work with another a/c?

    Ray, Granted high end payware are going to do much better in accuracy so of course those are going to be listed; would be nice to be able to add freeware without too much trouble (I wouldn't mind doing it if I could get the right data for it) I don't see why not; the 172 can be used to train PPL ticket holders for hood time; it won't be some advanced IFR flights though; I don't know if they're making newer 172s with the G1000 or not but if they are there's going to be options for it to do GPS approaches (not that they couldn't do it before the glass panels) even the 182s are capable of doing IFR so long as the pilot is IFR rated.

    I fly a little bit of everything; mostly freeware when it comes to the big heavies; I'm not into the systems simulation so I haven't found any payware (other than maybe CLS) for the 767 and the A330/340 I'll fly things like the RJ, 737, 757 whatever suits my fancy I saw someone mention that there was a profile even for the A2A Cessna 172 (which I don't have yet, but I got the Carenado 172 though) I don't pay taxes from anywhere as long as I don't ship anything to a state that collects tax so buying from simmarket has always been cheaper until now (I got a few things cheaper at PC Aviator, and I wished I had bought most of my stuff there instead of at fspilotshop.com but I am happy with my purchases nonetheless). so far this is the best place I have gotten answers about a lot of things; I'll be back thanks I was wondering if I should've gotten TOPCAT I'll have to get that

    the FMC can't update your fuel/weights on the plane itself; you're just telling the computer how much your plane weighs and how much FOB it has; I was hoping that the PFPX could streamline that process but you'd still have to tell your FMC otherwise.

    That's basically the point I made; one thing that simbrief doesn't do that PFPX does is that it connects to the sim giving you a moving map I think but you can do that with any other freeware addon that will do just that. EFASS is a newly recent flight planner similar to PFPX but I don't like their maps to be honest; what I still don't know is... can PFPX connect to FSX and change the a/c weights/fuel?

    Ray, You can only read so much, people will say one thing and people will say another the BEST way to do it is see for yourself; this isn't always possible. Simbrief gets current weather, step climbs and weights if you do it right of course. So I'm still not sure that PFPX is still the best way to go or stick with simbrief (I haven't got PFPX because one of the merchants I tried to use via paypal wouldn't activate a certain form of payment so I used a different merchant they don't have PFPX) the revolving account I have gives me no interest on purchases over $99 which I'm taking advantage of.

    Alright then, so have you have any experience with simbrief? I tried EFASS I wasn't impressed with how the map works and and the features/configurations seemed a little clunky (but not all that slow really) Not sure I like the idea that simbrief puts me at FL340 when there's a known headwind to be 130kts at TOC when its clearly 105kts at FL380 for much of that part of the flight; but as the flight gets on the winds from FL340-380 are comparatably the same IMO it should have done one of the two things: Told me that winds are not favorable at FL340 and I should climb to FL380 becasue the a/c is capable or B it should have said to stay at FL380 period. So I don't know if PFPX is better at this or not? This is where I'd like to see a trial, its annoying that there isn't one.

    That's what I've been using, but it seems to me that Simbrief loves put me right into the smack dab the worst of the worst headwinds... really?? c'mon... I do better at FL380 with 118-120kt headwind than at FL340 with 125-140kt headwind! (but as of right now, it doesn't matter if I'm at FL380 or FL340 cuz the winds are the same /smh)

    not sure but it looks like you can add to the database right?
