  1. Thank you very much. I will try the suggestions and get back to you. Ps. I really, really like P2ATC.
  2. Hi--I run P3dv4.5 HF3 on networked computers. I've been using P2ATC on a client computer flawlessly for over a year in that setup. I have never had any difficulty exporting P2ATC flight plans to P3D in the .pln format. After the latest update, I have encountered difficulties. Instead of a normal wait time after pushing the "export" button with the attendant "plan has been exported" advice, I now am encountering two issues. The first is that hitting the export button does nothing. It highlights itself, but for all but a single time the plan does not export. (I have double checked the network path and it is the same as when exports worked). The other problem is when I save plans within P2ATC they are in the ".vbf" format. On the single occasion I was able to export the plan it showed in the P3D documents file (along with all other flight plans) as a .vbf file, not a .pln file. As a result, P2A flight plans do not show up in the flight plan selection list withing P3D. Any help to get back to normal would be appreciated.would be appreciated. Thanks.
  3. A2A B-17. Love those wonderful Andrews sisters!
  4. ORBX ORBX ORBX- you'll meed orbx central to manage the scenery anyway, so why go through 2 steps when you can do it in one? Let Orbx do the grunt work of installation.
  5. Precisely. If I don't trim correctly, it's like wrestling a bear, which I presume is more like real flying.
  6. Trimmed ok-but flying through turbulence is exhausting.
  7. For you pilots out there, another question, please. I fly P3Dv4.5 with the Brunner CLSE yoke and rudder pedals and an 8 foot wide screen The force feedback configurations for the yoke and pedals are those created by the Brunner staff. They have different profiles for different aircraft. I mostly fly the A2A C172 and Brunner has a profile specifically for it. After flying an hour or so by hand, my muscles are sore and I go on the autopilot. The autopilot then moves the yoke--not me. Is this setup any more realistic? Thanks.
  8. Thank you immensely!!! I had two tours of duty to Iceland in Patrol Squadron 49 as a Tactical Coordinator (TACCO) in the P3C Orion. Great aircraft, flying 100 feet off the deck hunting Russian submarines in the North Atlantic in the early '70's. My Patrol Squadron logo has been my AVSIM avatar since day one. Thanks again, Jay.
  9. Depending on the type of prop aircraft, you have to give a lot of right rudder to stay straight. Jets I don't know from.
  10. Plus one-at my age and low frustration tolerance, stability is worth more than most anything else.
  11. Anyone heard anything recently as to when KPBI for P3d is being released? Anxiously awaiting it, as it's my home airport. Couldn't find anything recent in their forums. Thanks.
  12. There's one for sale on eBay. $250 or best offer. Ebay nowadays heavily favors buyers, so you really don't have to worry.
