  1. With small airport developres I try to communicate with them directly and in many cases they have listened and helped me remove them like the developer FSX3D for example. Like someone said above we need to make them aware that we dont want static aircraft. I think many developers are more interested in a nice looking airport rather than a functional one.
  2. I am trying to map elevator trim to my hardware using Spad.next but the usual suspect I use for so many other aircraft "Elevator Trim PCT" does not work. I cant even see the Elevator trim up/down, is it on the stick in an RV-14 aircraft? Also trying to map the Autopilot button (the one from the switch panel) to my Honeycomb Alpha, Does not seem to be as easy as mapping the "Autopilot Master". Is it perhaps a Circuit that should be mapped to this button for it to move? Thanks
  3. I also really liked the good old RealAir Legacy back in the day for P3D. Although just a little to speedy for my taste for VFR sightseeing but a lovely aircraft non the less Do you guys like the Simworks studios RV-14, recommend? I really might pick it up. Starting to get a little tired of steam gauge panels. Would be cool if Realsimgear made a G3X hardware unit. I have their GTN750 already. The RV-14 could be a really cool hardware panel project! Have any of you guys flown the Aquila A210 btw, wonderful aircraft! We have one at my flight club and with all the Cessnas and Pipers the one I keep flying most is the Aquila. That is one aircraft I really would like to see in MSFS.
  4. I agree with someone earler who wrote museum static aircraft are fine and personally I dont mind static aircraft you see parked inside hangars. I dont use VATSIM every flight and even in my offline flying I would prefer no static aircraft. These days I dont buy airports with static aircraft. Vote eith my wallet 😃
  5. Yes true but those 9% are probably long time dedicated flight simmers and I bet these 9% spend much more on addons than the 91% 😃 majority of flight simmers and especially more than newcombers. So although not in majority they are a strong consumer group. In addition I bet many non VATSIM and IVAO user dont want static aircraft either.
  6. I dont write here often despite having had this hobby now for for almost 30 years and beeing a AVSIM member for I dont know how long. Anyway, I just felt I needed to ventilate a subject that have grown to annoy me a bit with MSFS and its payware addons. The issue I have is static aircraft! Why do payware developers insist on adding them. At least back in P3D and FSX days many develpers made them optional. It suddenly with the introduction of MSFS seem to be some sort of norm and so magically difficult to accomodate the customer to get rid of. One payware developer replied to me on why they had static aircraft "becasue I like them". Hard to argue of course with this logic,... his airport his option but again why not make it optional then. As simple as a bgl to deactivate. It wouldnt need to be a whole installation application. Not only do they occupy space at terminals but I dare argue that not a single VATSIM user want them (correct me if I am wrong). In addition AI Traffic options are endless and they move which is more than I can say about the clunky often ugly airplane...ish looking objects at the airports. AIG, Simple Traffic and default GA there are so many options free and pay (for the folks flying offline). Please addon developers rethink the static aircraft approach.
  7. Hope at some point you can fix unwanted voice chatter. I only use the ATC bit of the program so I can speak to ATC in MSFS rather than have to use the built in ATC menu. With every other option turned off I still hear ramp coordinators, the occational womans voice in the cockpit (even with all copilot stuff etc turned off) I remember this beeing a problem also in P3D many years ago when using MCE.
  8. You can still update airports also in MSFS, especially default ones (a bit more complicated with 3rd party airports) using ADE.
  9. Yeah I know thats a negative of couse but for me at least better for now than to have old 2018/2019 schedules. And I fly on VATSIM/IVAO most of the time anyway 🙂
  10. Up and running and it looks great both offline and with the live traffic feature (which is the one I personally prefer of the two). Now if only we can get some model matching up so IVAO and VATSIM will use them as well.
  11. On this topic about traffic and ATC. I was sitting at the GA ramp at Zurich airport last night and thinking I am really there, this is unbelievable and like a new world after 25 years with this hobby. The commercial airliners just kept coming in on runway 28 and pilots were communicating with Zurich arrival before handed of to Zurich Tower all in real time with real sim pilots and real sim controllers and real voice communication. I am talking VATSIM, go give it a try. I have never ever experienced such realism before in flight simulator. It has some limitations of course in that you need to be where everyone else is or it will get rather silent on the radio but with both VATSIM and IVAO you can select where coverage is best. I used to be a big sceptic to online flying for years but now I never fly without it.
  12. A problem as well here in Sweden Aug 29. Tried various locations and terrible results. Seem to back in FSX.
  13. Would like to assign the ”Choke” (for example in the DV20) to a button on my Honeycomb Alpha. Anyone know what simconnect, LVAR or such I should use? I tried to assign the value Primer but that did not work. Cant get that choke lever to move.
  14. I wonder if this somehow also would work for the GTN 650? Same unit really, only different size. Replacing that default GNS430 display with a GTN 650 would be cool.
