  1. I have programmed the Icaro AW139 helicopter with the new P3D autopilot and took a screen shot to show what it looks like to anyone interested. Works really well but suffers from slight drift to the left on touchdown. I've been trying all kinds of experiments with the programming but can't seem to correct the drift. I have tried this autopilot in R22, EH-101, Bell 206 from FSX ported over to P3D and they all work well except for the drift. My friend Helomissionman has provided a link for the screenshot. https://app.box.com/s/1ilmviwwu242e7fcmqe9fsxqvvxr2pwa Another problem which I mentioned in a previous post: hitting certain other keys while flying the with the autopilot on causes the entire program to lock up and the only way out is to enable the task manager and end the program. Once again, maybe my particular setup or not. If you just fly and operate the autopilot only there is no problem. These experiments were conducted with P3DV4.3.
  2. I set the yaw_damper_gain=100 and the yaw_control_uses_trim=1.000000 in the R22 modified sim cfg and it appears to be pretty stable. I tried the same thing in the EH-101 from FSX and that works really well. The main problem I am having is in hovering. I am still getting drift, although not much. I am mainly using the autopilot on long missions where you have to fly long distances. The autopilot works really well under these circumstances. Holds altitude, heading, speed, really well. I have not tried any nav or gps driven functions yet so I can't presently help on that. Keep experimenting.
  3. I have configured the Bell 206 with the New P3D autopilot following all the instructions as given and put the yaw_damper_gain at 100 as suggested. For the most part, the autopilot seems to work. However, when I put the 206 in a hover at any altitude, I have a constant drift to the left. Don't know what is causing that. Does anyone have suggestions on how to correct this? Also I tried the R22 default helo and it works pretty good but when I put this in a hover, it drifts backwards. Thanks for any suggestions.
  4. I did a new clean install of P3Dv4.2.2. I then modified the R22 panel.cfg and sim.cfg to that recommended here. The autopilot pops up as desired but then it does not work at all. Furthermore, on my system it locks up the "Shift+key" selections so that you cannot use them anymore and you have to exit the flight and start over again to regain functionality. I am running P3D in Windows 10 build 1709 (64bit) with all the latest updates in administrator mode and just can't get this autopilot to work. Any suggestions from anyone?

    Aerocache problem?

    If these are updated, how will they be acquired? I mean, will they automatically be overwritten when the program starts? Or something like that? This would be great to do them all over with a more challenging distance mark. Looking forward to it. Many thanks for all the work.
  6. Yes, there are multiple errors. Almost all of them read: "Requested asset does not exist: ({24E7722E-4341-FA99-3D92-CCB82166C139}) (51.477480, -0.488670): MaterialVariation '{24E7722E-4341-FA99-3D92-CCB82166C139}' for autogen failed because it is ether missing or is of the incorrect\invalid type." I do not think I have any addons enabled. I say I don't think because I have run so many extras from the Steam program like "Arctic Rescue", "Dangerous Approaches", etc. Maybe when I put those on they added stuff I am unaware of. However, as far as I can ascertain, I did not put any scenery addons on per se. I have run a lot of third party missions so I am sure that some additional stuff got on without my knowing. I guess I will just have to live with it. Once again, many thanks for your input.
  7. Majuh: I did as you suggested. I completely erased my existing conversion. I then used toolkit 1.1.32 to reconvert. Took a while but completed ok. I then went back into Flight and tried those aerocaches that I mentioned. They still don't work. I tried the Moscow TV tower and it bombed the program just like before. Either these aerocaches are corrupt or my version of FSX-SE is corrupt. The only thing bothers me is that all the other aerocaches worked fine. Still wondering why just these few. Thanks anyway for your help but at this point I am just bewildered.
  8. Is there any way to re-download or retrieve the new aerocaches? I have three new aerocaches which do not load and cause the main program to crash. All the others work fine so I am assuming that these three got corrupt somehow. They are the TV tower in Moscow, the French Arch De Triumphe, and the London Eye. Every time I try to load these they crash my system. May during the initial retrieval they got meshed up. So how can I get these three again with a fresh download? Any help thanks.
  9. Many thanks for publishing those pending, as Albacore said. I am having a bad problem however. When visiting many of these new aerocaches, the autogen puts like a million trees all over the place and I can't even see anything but trees. Whoever heard of thousands of trees surrounding the Sphinx? Anyone else having this problem? Any solution? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  10. When do the "pending" aerocaches" become "unpending" so that you can collect them? Really looking forward to getting these and more. Thanks.
  11. Thanks very much for the outstanding effort. Good luck in your new endeavours. Best wishes.
  12. I just found out about the new aerocaches being added to the sim and I just want to say a big Thank you to whoever is getting them up and running. I tried out a few of the new ones and I am just very happy that we are having new ones. Thanks to everyone involved. I love aerocaches.
  13. Hello Friends: I just purchased the GTN 750 for X-plane Ver.10.51 and it works perfectly. However, I don't see anywhere that there is an autopilot. The announcement says that there is a new autopilot. Is that just for FSX or for X-plane also? Thanks for a great product.

    Flight Toolkit 1.1.12

    I finally got the conversion working with 1.1.12. I erased the worldwide addon and then reinstalled it. After I did this everything started to work. Don't know why this happened. One thing has me really puzzled. If I click on an airport in New Jersey and look at the job board, there are multiple jobs you can fly. I tried one and it worked fine. How is this possible? I thought there would only be jobs for Alaska and Hawaii since I did not think MS programmed more. Once again, thanks to everyone who made this possible. Now if we can get more aerocaches in, it would be great. Thanks very much.

    Flight Toolkit 1.1.12

    Thanks to all the respondents. I cannot find any .flightaddon, I am running in NonGWFL mode, and I have completely un-installed the toolkit and reinstalled it. I have deleted the Test folder. I have run the conversion three times and it still does not work. I have looked at the content converter log and there are a million conversions. I have re-enabled the WorldAddon after the conversion. Still, sadly, there is no world. There is only Hawaii and Alaska. I have no idea why this doesn't work since I followed everyone's instructions carefully. Why .flightaddon is not built or created is a mystery to me. I have done a previous conversion from a boxed edition on another machine and everything works. I will have to check out the previous one to see if I can glean anything as to why this one from Steam doesn't go. Thanks everyone for your help.
