    Flight planning with no tool

    If you don't have it littlenavmap is a nice freeware tool you can download and use for creating your own flight plan and exporting it to the Sim. A lot of usefull features.
  2. In P3DV4.3 I have been recently plagued with a series of CTD. Apps I was running at the time were AS2016, Little Nav Map and my camera app. Since fine tuning sliders back didn't seem to fix the problem I suspected the apps. The most recent one installed was my camera app. I will not name the brand so as not to start another ( " My brand is better then your brand ") food fight but it is an older camera I used for years in FSX and seems to work as well in P3D. If I don't use it the program crashes seem to have stopped and I can move my sliders back up to enjoy the visuals LM provided us. So my sim brethren and sisters, this begs the philosophical question "how necessary is a camera app?" I fly primarily jet liners and the only thing I really miss is the shake and rattle during take off and landing roll. You can press the space bar and pan around to any view a pilot can see from his seat which is more realistic then any preset camera views. Your neck doesn't stretch and your head doesn't yaw. Well maybe a little. If that's not good enough the default camera views cover about everything you might need a closer look at. I would enjoy the thoughts of other simmers on this matter as I am looking at the latest on the market just to get that shake rattle and roll back. I would be gambling the money because I can't be sure it wouldn't cause the same issue as the one I am currently using. What do you think? Do you use a camera or are you fine without one?

    Any way to get rid of some effects?

    Move your Special effects slider to the left?

    My apologies to all!

    Anders, I always find your post to be informative and well stated. You are an asset to the community. I probably have more to apologise for then you. Hang in there. This too shall pass.

    TFDI 717 Version 1.1 Released.

    Excellent review. The only thing I would add is that there is an FS2 Crew available for the Leonardo if you like a virtual FO. I would like TFDi to add call outs for the take off speeds, gear and flaps settings but by no means a deal breaker. Both are excellent productions that will keep you happily busy for a long time.

    TFDI 717 Version 1.1 Released.

    Getting hard to decide which one to choose for a Sim session. Like having a concubine.

    Always good reviews

    Best reviews are from customer users here on AVSIM. They'll be asking questions about issues that they encounter with a product giving me a good feel for quality.

    We remember Sully and the ditching in the Hudson....

    I took my grandson to the Carolina Aviation Musiem at Douglas Airport (KCLT) to see Sully's plane where it now resides. Beat all to heck. There must have been hundreds of some mighty big birds. The side window next to his head even has a crack where one must have glanced. Good luck one didn't penetrate the wind screen.

    Aircraft not showing in the operations center.

    Thanks Chris. That's what I'll do.
  13. Greetings, All my PMDG jets (DC6) are working fine in P3DV4.3 but they are not showing in the ops center unless I reinstall them. Is this a V4.3 thing or some other issue?
  14. It's all personally relative but PMDG aircraft have with out fail returned to me many times in enjoyment and pleasure for my investment A couple weeks worth of candy bars, Cokes, Starbucks coffee, tuna salad sandwich instead of McDonalds, McDonalds instead of Long Horn's and you have your jet. Little here and there adds up! PMDG = good value on the Dollar.

    Reposition Feature?

    There's also the map click and drag method. Just drag the aircraft to the waypoint you want, let it stablelize itself then adjust the fuel and time to match. Takes a little planning but works. FEDEX has a lot of short flights with MD11' s. Just substitute your T7 on some of those.
