    DC6 update

    Hey guys! Thank you for updating the DC6 for P3D.When the DC6 originally came out,I found it very difficult to handle.So,I put it aside and went on to fly other aircraft. Recently I noticed that the DC6 was updated,and now she is very flyable.Also, in the past,she was prone to CTD's.RIght now,she is a whole lot more stable. I think I can say that PMDG,together with A2A ,produce top level propliners.For people in our hobby,it is difficult to find realistic reproductions of propliners. Most flightsim pilots are FMC and automation generation pilots.For us oldtimers,there was not a whole lot of good stuff on the market.Until now!So,once again PMDG:thank you.I understand that your products are pricy,but on the other hand,one gets a whole lot of quality for this money.What you get here is a totally different product than the run of the mill 30 to 40 $/£/€ softwares.

    CG

    Hi, Does anyone know where to find the CG of the loaded aircraft?This would be handy to set the T.O. trim setting of the Phenom.
  3. Aaah! The Phenom 300.I love this plane.I hate this plane.Let me tell you first that on my system,I can run the PMDG QOTSA III,together with Active Sky,Orbx Global, Flightsimcommander,ProATCX,Navigraph charts ,Traffic 360 and High Resolution Airport commercial scenery without any problems.Yet the humble Phenom causes CTD now and then for no reason whatsoever.Yet she is a sublimely beautiful and state of the art aeroplane that I just cannot dismiss.She is elegance pure.But she really is like a naughty mistress.I am running her on P3Dv4.3 64 bit version in Windows 10.Why is she causing me all these headaches? First of all,I would like to say that I agree with someone on this forum who says that in the real Phenom,no one would install a GTN 750.I own this software but for authenticity's sake would not install it in my Phenom.I know that the G 1000 can be a pain in the ...,but this is the instrument installed in the real thing.I was happy when Carenado decided to provide Navigraph support for it ,and unlike in their Citation II,it really works here.But I still have a few problems that I am unable to resolve.Maybe some of you old hands may have a solution for some of these: Some people have suggested that in order to improve performance,it is possible to shut down the copilot's PFD.The clickspot in on the top left of the PFD. I tried this but it does not work.Maybe it is a P3D v4.3 thing .Can anyone tell me if this is possible? When I put in altitudes in the flightplan,they are usually rejected and the standard 20000 feet comes back after I enter my self chosen altitude.Anyone experience this? Lately,I find that it is sometimes impossible to activate the yaw damper.I can push the button,but the caption says it remains OFF.(My AP is on at the time I try this) The weather radar does indeed only work on the ground.So,please,Carenado,consider fixing the radar scan angle. When I push the button to test whether my plane config is appropriate for take off,there is no sound.Sometimes I get a message if the config is inappropriate:No takeoff,flaps or something.But should I not be hearing:Takeoff OK,when I am correctly set up? OK,I can take my sweetheart out for a spin,and now and then I complete the flight without much of a hassle.I am so proud to be seen with this beauty at busy airports.I can even surmise the jealousy of the heavy Boeing and Airbus pilots,when I elegantly pass them on the tarmac.But still,I would like her to be much more consistent and reliable (faithful to me). Ok guys,I would be very grateful for any piece of advice.Even if you cannot advise me at all,I will probably not leave her.For that,she is just too beautiful.I am a weak fellow.

    WX Radar and Slats warning

    Hey,thanks guys for the replies.Rudi,I did what you suggested and setup real bad weather in Active Sky and,yes,there are returns!Thank you. Dave,I made a typographical error,I am running P3Dv4.My apologies.Thibod,I used manual throttle to take-off and must have overboosted the engines,what would account for the flickering.When I tried with AT engaged,it indeed did not flicker anymore.Thanks! Dave,I was not aware that the WX radar only reflects active precipitation.You know, Active Sky is pretty good and maybe we have all been misled by earlier cheaper weather radars.Thibod,I have to check on the green reference pointer.I think I got it wrong because what I did was read the numbers on the longitudinal trim readout wrongly:There is a dot before those numbers and when it read .7 I put the elevator trim on .7,not 7 as I should have.I noticed that when I put in the correct reading,i.e. 7 in this case,the green pointer does indeed align. So guys,you effectively solved all my problems.Thanks so much for the great advice.I learned a lot from you.

    WX Radar and Slats warning

    Hi, First of all my congratulations to the team who made this wonderful software!It is a rare piece of perfection.I simply adore the lines of the DC9/MD80/717. I flew the F1 DC-9 classic and the TFDI 717 and they are really good.But in the DC-9 there is no FMC and it is hard to do the more modern flights.The 717,on the other hand,is all glass,and I miss the old school panel.So the Maddog is the perfect compromise.The flight model is amazing,as is the internal lighting.. For me,I have 2 little problems.Maybe someone here can point me in the right direction:I keep on getting the slats auditory warning on Takeoff.I use the configurator to setup the plane and then I set the CG in the airplane;For example,yesterday the CG was 10.5.I set this in the pedestal with flaps 15.It gave me 0.7 as output,which I consequently set in the elevator trim.On Takeoff,with flaps 15 set,speed brake armed,autobrakes set to Takeoff,I got the slats warning and some of the engine gauges were flickering;(I do not know whether this is related).Can anyone explain me the exact procedure to transfer configurator data to the Maddog? My second problem concerns the weather radar.I have the Hifi Active Sky for P3Dv4 and I put this in the configurator .I can do the WX radar test,I can start the WX radar in WX or WX/T,I can use the tilt command and the WX VAR, I know about the rotatory button on the pilot display to increase/decrease light intensity. But to this day,I have not had a single radar reflection.I have been surrounded by clouds and bad weather,but never a radar signature.I want to say that I can succesfully ask acars weather for departure and destination on the FMC. I somewhat reminds me of the TDFI 717 which always had extremely little radar returns on its weather radar.Maybe there is a link there as the Leonardo team uses the TDFI lighting software (trueglass and...).Anyhow does anyone have the same problem with the Hifi Active Sky program and the MaddogX? I run P3Dv2 64 version on Windows 10. Thanks for any input!

    Coolsky DC9

    Hi Craig, I know this comes somewhat late,but I am very interested in your panel config for the Coolsky DC9 with the Friendly Panels FMC added.I own both but have been unable to incorporate the FMC. When I apply the suggested panel config change ,my DC9 freezes.I must be doing something wrong,but I do not know what.Might you be willing to send me a copy of the panel config.?Also,did you apply this to all 4 panels? My email:schellekens.e@skynet.be Thank you!

    Same here.No problems in P3D v2.5
  11. Hi folks, I did not have the error 75 before I switched to Norton. Now I am unable to run RV4.I looked into this forum topic but could not find any fixes for the Norton caused error.Could anyone redirect me to the solution?Thanks
