  1. Four years later, I am here to suggest the solution: using two monitors and the autopilot unity is on the second monitor, simply click anywhere on the first monitor (e.g. the windshield) and then move the mouse pointer to the heading switch on the autopilot unit on the second monitor, and scroll the mouse wheel. The heading bug will turn. This problem is not exclusively of this plane. It is a known problem which occurs in some 2d panels placed on the 2nd monitor. RegardS
  2. Thanks for the support. I could not imagine the P3Dv4 Rome-LIRF so outdated - and it is considered one of the "detailed default" in the FS World. The ILS frequencies of runways 16R, 34R, and 25 are from the time of Caligula ;-) Sorry if I used the word "bug", but I was influenced by that post in the 777 forum. As I have other priorities for FS shopping, I will close those runways in PRO-ATC/X and use 16C, 34C, 34L and 16L. Regards,
  3. Sometime ago, someone posted in the 777 forum a problem occurred in some runways around the world, where a message “rw/ils freq error” appeared during the approach, i.e., the autotuning ILS system was not recognizing the frequency. It was identified as a bug and the walkaround was clearing the frequency box on the NAV/RAD page before entering the destination. This post was answered by lots of pilots with the same problem. Now, this same message came to me on the B747 QOTS approaching Rome LIRF rwy 34R. The ILS frequency was in the PFD, the same as of the approach plate, but the LOC switch refused to light Can someone please confirm if this is really a bug and the solution is still the above mentioned? Or simply, things like that happen and there is a Boeing documented solution? P3Dv4.1, W7 Regards
  4. If you added it, I can’t see it as an option. Mine is Button. Is this a Voice only feature?
  5. Hello, How is the engines start sequence is changed to 4-1-2-3?
  6. PC Aviator US download speed?

    How long should I wait for a 4gb download of Anchorage Professional? I'm trying that for 2 weeks at random times of the day/night. I guess we have the right to complain for this. I don't have this problem for years at any other web shop and my internet speeds are quite good and stable. I think yes they have to answer any complain from customers and the excuse of a cluttered server is unacceptable. If one wants to sell tons one has to acquire heavy trucks, cranes and big installations. At the moment, the nth try to download with FDM is expecting 2d 8h to finish. Regards
  7. WX Advantage Update - how to?

    Hi guys, Next time I will try the magic updater. I did not remove the WX from the Lear 35A, but did it for the other aircraft. This last update, don’t know why, made a mess in the fsx.cfg and I had to redo lots of old permissions FSX had for ages. Thanks and seasons greetings,
  8. Rex/Milviz recently published an update for their WX Advantage radar, and they recommend that the addon should be uninstalled before upgrading. Then, when upgrading, they again recommend that you should use the WX Configuration app to remove the unity from the airplanes which it is installed, before going further on the installation. That is quite easy to do with non-retrofitted aircraft. How are we supposed to act on upgrading the WX Advantage on the Lear 35A? Regards
  9. Chris, that's what I was thinking. KTPA has a pretty long 01L and I landed there using Autobrakes 2 (as always) and reversers. I just applied a really small brakes pedal pressure just before clearing the runway. The whole procedure was quite normal, differently to what happened in Sydney, when the aircraft only slowed almost at the end of the runway and I had to use a lot of brakes - in this case I agree they should be melting the tires. Is there some kind of brakes tuning on P3D and/or QOTS? Regards
  10. Hi, the exactly same oddity happened to my B747F landing at YSSY. And to complete things, the aircraft could not park because she refused to continue taxing just before turning to the gate. Brakes/tires heat lights were on. P3DV4.1 and not registered FSUIPC. Andrew, did you came to a conclusion? Thanks
  11. Hi, As I am now having this problem too, I came to this post via Search. Is this case came to a conclusion? Yesterday I landed normally at KTPA using B747F / P3DV4.1 after 7 hs flight from LPAZ and I couldn't taxi to the gate after clearing the active and holding short due to Tower instructions. And, as described by Gusifer, I had to apply max throttle to reach a gate. Thanks.
  12. The issue I've found was tested on both the newest 738NGX version (JUL12-2017) and the previous. My flight was from TJSJ to KTPA (SJuan/PR to Tampa-FL) and the flight plan offered by FlightAware was: ACONY2 SAPPO R507 GTK A555 ZBV DCT PHK This flight plan was loaded on FMC and all legs appeared along the route pages without any intervals. The other FMC pages were filled with the necessary data and, at last, I started filling the winds along the many legs. PFPX plan gave me the following information for FL400: NOPIT=112/011; LENUS=109/013; GTK=117/013; RATTL=112/015; INDEE=243/002; DUKKY=267/004; DONEZ=096/014; ZQA=104/016; ZBV=072/009. The flight planner gives the wind information for some of the waypoints, so I started filling NOPIT, skipping ANTOX, filling LENUS, skipping MRTEE, and so on until I tried to fill INDEE on page 3/5. At that waypoint I could not press the EXEC button after entering the winds 243/002. Also, the FMC simply could not clear the scratchpad nor advance the pages. After sometime, I looked what was happening with the FMC-2. It was on MOD condition. I pressed EXEC and went to the LEGS pages just to see them empty. The FMC-1 was frozen and some seconds later FMC-2 stopped working. Next, after rebooting, I did this test flying. When reaching FL300 I started filling the winds as above described. When I tried to fill the winds on the waypoint INDEE, the FMC froze and the aircraft started behaving as the AP was off, just uncontrollable. The cockpit was not at all frozen, but with very slow responses as if the CPU was extremely occupied with other heavy tasks. I use the NGX since 2011 and never experienced such behavior. I'm sure I did this procedure before, filling winds at some waypoints and leaving the others simply inheriting the numbers from the above. I don't know if this specific route has some trick or any special condition to end like that. I'd like to know the opinion of those of you guys who would try this flightplan. Thanks!
  13. Changing ILS Frequency in FMC

    In this case, I'll do some more tests using LNAV and HDG to join LOC at airports with parallel ILS runways and, if the frequency problem persists, open a ticket I will. Best,
  14. Changing ILS Frequency in FMC

    I have just flew the approach 12R to OMDB using BUBI1B star.During the downwind leg, it correctly tuned the ILS 12R on 109.50 IBDE (as always). Then, before the base left turn, I deactivated LNAV and did the turn using HDG. It captured the LOC and G/S like a charm. You can leave VNAV as you wish, or FLCG. Juergen, try your fly to OMDB turning to final using HDG instead of LNAV. Please, read the warning in FCOM (NP 21.47). I don't know if that's the answer. Don't think it's a bug. Best,
  15. Changing ILS Frequency in FMC

    Dan, Yes, IDBR was set to IDBE and I lost data for approach. Before turning base, I could see the IDBE, the LOC and the GS for the assigned runway 12R. This has happened to me twice on OMDB and once at LatinVFR KMIA. My guess is I was intercepting the localizer on LNAV, and there is a warning on FCOM about this. (NP.21.47), but I'm not sure if this is exactly the case. I will make some tests on this circuits and see if using HDG to join works. Best,
