  1. Carenado claims that their X plane 11 B1900 was optimised for VR. I will say that is true of all of the switches. But if you want to use the GPS it will have to be on your 2D monitor, as this video shows... https://www.twitch.tv/videos/156204545

    Engine design and "Chemtrails"

    Jet fuel can't burn hot enough to melt steel beams; but plenty hot enough to weaken them critically. Even in fires in high rises that had not been hit by airplanes there are many cases of firefighters giving up and evacuating because of the risk of the building collapsing. Such as the Meridian building in Philadelphia. The type of construction used throughout the World Trade Center has now been banned. Trusses can give great strength at low mass, but are only as strong as the weakest part of the structure. Buildings need high mass to survive fire. One of the floors collapsed at each of the three WTC buildings, then the floor below it had to support two floors and collapsed immediately. And so on. There is no reserve of strength in a steel truss floor. Donald

    Engine design and "Chemtrails"

    People who believe in chemtrails always point to contrails being different in appearance or lasting longer than they used to. It seems to me debunkers are really dropping the ball when it comes to the science. I have seen no one touch the fact of how ever increasing bypass ratios in airline engines are the real reason behind the perceived changes in contrails and how they tend to last longer or provide the nucleus of new clouds more often. Contrails really have changed since most of us old timers were kids; why don't we hear more about the real reason why? Donald

    New Trinidad TB21 GT Turbo what about GTN 750?

    I would definitely buy this plane if it had a GTN 750 in the VC. No questions asked. Donald
  5. I have the migration tool, can I just use that? I have both FSX and P3D. Donald

    PMDG DC-6 Release info

    Then why does their site say this: The ultimate simulation of the a Magnificent Douglas Classic, the DC-6 Cloudmaster is now available in Laminar Research's X-Plane 10 on Windows! And there is nothing stopping anyone from placing it in their cart and attempting checkout. Clear as mud if you ask me, I bet I wasn't the only one to think it was released after Frooglesim's video.

    PMDG DC-6 Release info

    I just tried to buy the DC-6, but how much does it really cost??? It looks like they stuck with the 12 million price all through the transaction; it was over my card's limit so no sale!!!! Ridiculous... Donald
  9. I enjoy X plane but most of my friends online use FSX or P3D so I don't fly X-plane as much. I am looking to find more X plane users who like multi player; especially in General Aviation aircraft and helis. We could either use default multiplayer or the plug-in the .org uses for their fly-ins. I also have Smart Copilot for shared cockpit in compatible planes. When I am flying the teamspeak I am most often at is Digital Theme park. The address is ts3.digitalthemepark.com Looking forward to getting more use out of X-Plane!!! Donald

    Frame rate issues

    Just to clarify; it seems if your friend upgrades his hardware what will get him the most bang for the buck is a new video card, The Nvidia card with the best price/performance tradeoff is the 970 IMHO. Donald
  11. A big help to populating X-plane is a freeware scenery package that covers 23000 airports to a level above the FSX default. It really improves X plane and if you have custom scenery for an airport it will be loaded in higher priority so there is no conflict. I forget how to spell it... drewzeskie or something but I bought their New York scenery and airport package for X plane because I heard of a lot of OOMs in FSX and p3d.. I have all three plus DCS and Rise of Flight. My next purchase will be an additional hard drive :>) All of these sims have their pluses and minuses.. But it seems DCS has the most realistic heli dynamics, especially ground effect. I would fly X-plane a lot more if I could find more multiplayer buddies that use it... I am usually on TS3 when I fly and the server I am usually at most of the time is Digital ThemePark which is the Teamspeak address of ts3.digitalthemepark.com I also have Smart Copilot for shared cockpit in the Dreamfoil 407 and the Nils BK-117. I also enjoy fixed wings when the mood hits, usually GA.

    Pilatus PC-24 front wheel cover

    I would love to fly a virtual PC-24; payware or freeware. Please keep us posted!!! Donald

    Anyone Using PilotEdge?

    I wonder if Pilotedge Traffic doubled when Orbx Socal came out. Donald

    Weird flight model problem

    Does it happen when you are flying formation? Active sky wake turbulence effect is busted and should be set to zero. Donald
