    Can no longer get AVSIM on Android

    Reading this thread on my Samsung with Chrome. No problem. Hmmm...
  2. I had a 980 and it kept up, but it was close. I later upgraded to a 1080ti and it takes it in stride.
  3. You mean like in real life! LOL
  4. IHMO, go big or go home... in addition to screen size, 'life-size' depends on your VC zoom setting and eye location ([views] eyepoint) and viewing distance from the screen. With my settings, 58" is close to life-sized.

    Ultimate 787 - V1.1.1 Released

    I believe my TO/GA button mapping 'issue' was user inflicted. I've installed P3D V1.1.1 and find that if I enable the A/T switches and press the AT button, I can engage the TO/GA throttle function with my mapped HOTAS button.
  6. Alfredo Torrado & Juan Alcón have presented their case. Colin has responded openly (and showing surprising restraint!) with a proposal and images which should allow this issue to be settled. We're now waiting to hear for a response. I respectfully request that any armchair analysts to restrain their opinions one way or the other until we hear from the OP.

    Ultimate 787 - V1.1.1 Released

    Yep - I haven't upgraded to V1.1.1 yet but I also get this behavior (so this was not something introduced with the update). Clicking the TO/GA key assignment toggles the speed brake arm on and off. (So does the Speed brake arm binding i have set.) Works perfectly for me in several other A/C so I have to point the finger at QW for this. Note: using P3D controls mappings. No FSUIPC involved. Perhaps there's some sort of preference in the 787 somewhere?

    P3DV4 QualityWings 787 Bugs

    I meant, I can't find the equivalent of a VOR nav mode to get the AP to follow a radial. I think Ryan and I are trying to do the same thing... fly it 'old school' VOR to VOR .

    P3DV4 QualityWings 787 Bugs

    When manually setting nav radios for VOR L & R, do you get accurate DME distance info for each? I seem to be getting the same DME distance for different stations. Also, I can't get it to follow a radial course to a station. Not sure how.

    Oh oh! Trade war!

    A loophole. Excellent!

    Oh oh! Trade war!

    In retaliation to the 10% tarrif on foreign aluminium products being imposed by the US, I am self imposing 10% VIRTUAL surtax on aircraft add-ons containing software aluminium. Of course, this surtax shall be refunded to the purchaser (me), to offset the additional cost of the virtual aluminium contained in said product. Take that! 🤗

    QW787 P3Dv4 - first impressions?

    If you're going to bash it, at least get the name right... it's RealLight. 😛

    QW787 P3Dv4 - first impressions?

    That's an interesting question. I have both. Neither will break the bank, so you can probably end up with them both eventually. I'm pretty impressed with the 787 but I think I'd go with the 717 first (opt-in beta version, which is apparently being officially released very soon). Reasoning: It's a slightly more comprehensive implementation IMHO (and Real Light is excellent), it's had more time to work out the wrinkles and I prefer short-haul A/C. It's really your call though depending on a preference for short haul vs long haul and Boeing type systems vs MDish type (a refreshing change).

    QW787 P3Dv4 - first impressions?

    No problem in V4.1 (as you obviously read since you nicely reacted to my previous post... thanks!) I see movement of the yoke (and pedals and pedal brakes) in correspondence with movement of my stick and pedals. It hand flies perfectly. I do NOT use FSUIPC in P3D. Hope you get it sorted out.
