  1. He said he already reset that.
  2. Try going to: Settings Customize Aircraft Show Cockpit Tooltips And, make sure it is not checked.
  3. Also, the FS9 scenery add-on file "alaskff1.zip" will work in FSX and adds Northern Lights to many Alaskan airports. That file's available at Flightsim.com.
  4. Never really tried using the outside view. As for add-ons to land, never have used or know of any.
  5. This is some information once garnered in bits and pieces from hovercontrol.com. "You'll need a joystick and pedals or a joystick with a twist grip to substitute for pedals. (I'd like to have pedals but I use a twist grip.) Joystick settings: Set to the maximum sensitivity (far right) with the null zone set to the minimum (far left). Note: This is very important. Realism: Set medium to maximum and disable the auto-rudder. I use maximum. VC View: Backed off to the highest zoom factor between 50 and 60 -- then angled down so that I can see the gauges and have a view from a bit above the horizon all the way down to the lowest point possible -- preferably the ground between my feet. Note: This is a matter of taste. Use EXTREMELY small movements on BOTH the cyclic and collective are critical. Review the instructions in the FSX Learning Center. Fly to a hover just before your landing point and then, and only then, move on and land slowly. A good rate of speed for a helicopter landing is the same as a slow walk. The default Bell is a good place to start. Practice a lot and with the same helicopter and the SAME VIEW EVERY TIME. A good practice routine is just taking off from one end of a runway, attempting to fly down the runway at less than 150 feet, slowing down and landing between the numbers at the other end of the runway. It takes a lot of practice but it is well worth it."
  6. By and large, after you read all about it, the key to helicopters is practice, practice, practice. Initially I found scenery with a roof top landing pad. I flew the short distance from the ground to the pad and back again about 50 times. After the 100 or so landings, I got it.
  7. In FSX, when you are in a normal flight, go to the Map page. There you can either drag the airplane icon around or you can enter latitude, longitude and elevation in the boxes on the left. Your position will change accordingly.
  8. FSX has been a great success; but, like all good things, it too shall pass as other, more sophisticated products make their way to market. To some it's been a technical flight simulator, to others it's been a touring scenery simulator and/or just a game. I've always enjoyed the scenery of places I'm familiar with; but, other than those, my interest has been more focused on the technical side of understanding the aircraft, flight and navigation techniques. It's also interesting to modify them with other gauges and such. As we all wait for the next best flight simulator, few will continue to spend money on any more FSX additions and the support for such will certainly dwindle. While improved scenery is the big new deal, it's not my primary interest. As a result, I'll be one of those "hanger ons", no pun intended, that will continue to enjoy FSX for quite some time to come.
  9. I rarely fly from outside the aircraft, so I went back and looked. I have the same triangles anomaly looking from the outside from the rear of the tri-cycle aircraft with the landing lights on. I noticed other have also reported this on other boards. Hopefully the creators of this aircraft will come up with a fix.
  10. PS I do use FSX Acceleration and no DX10.
  11. This is what my FSX Tri-gear model.cfg looks like and it works. [models] normal=Maule_Trigear_P3DV4_exterior interior=Maule_Trigear_P3DV4_interior It is only the FSX Tri-gear model.
  12. This is NOT about a P3D version. The noted correction file has some P3D labels; but, it is actually part of the FSX version. My original note belongs in the FSX Forum.
  13. On the new Maule M7-260/MT7-260, the Tri-cycle model VC does not show up. To fix this, the Tri-cycle model.cfg file needs to be changed to read: [models] normal=Maule_Trigear_P3DV4_exterior interior=Maule_Trigear_P3DV4_interior
  14. To: Bullpup We must of posted seconds apart Great minds run in the same circles!
