  1. About two months ago I had to reinstall Windows 7 and most of my FSX software. As of a week ago I was going to install my MegaScenery Earth DVD's (5 states) and none of them will install. I have tried ORBX software DVD's and other data DVD's and they are appearing and installing. I went so far as to swap out the CD/DVD drive for a new one and I get the same results. When I put the disc into the drive, it will appear in Windows Explorer and I can see the individual files on the disc. I right-click on the installation file, the disc, or rather DVD drive will spin and there will be a green progress bar moving slowly to the right at the top of Windows Explorer. The green progress bar gets almost all the way to the right but does nothing. No install sequence and the disc just continues to spin. I have tried letting Windows update the driver, but I keep getting the message that the driver is currently up to date. I have also went to Miscrosoft's website to try their software that will detect issues and none were reported. There are no yellow flags showing up in Device Manager. I have removed the CD/DVD drive from Device Manager and rebooted with no positive results. The Region Code for the drive is set to 1. I have tried a different SATA cable and nothing. It's weird that it is just the MegaScenery discs so far. Anyone have any ideas on this for further troubleshooting? Thanks for any help. Doug

    RPX Gauge or GTN 750 in Turbine Duke V2

    Thank you to everyone for your replies. GTN 750 it is. I appreciate your time and hospitality. Doug
  3. Just purchased the RealAir Turbine Duke V2. Any feedback on what to fit it with. Either the RPX guages or the GTN 750. Sounds like both do an amazing job. Does one do an overall better job than the other? Just want to see what the overall consensus is. I've read the last few posts regarding the release of the Duke in this forum with all sorts of feedback regarding the plane itself. Bert Pieke quotes "I would purchase the Flight1 GTN 750 just for this aircraft alone. You are not going to regret it." I have the utmost respect for Bert as I've learned a lot from him and think highly of his input. Just trying to get a feel before I spend my hard earned dollars. Thanks to everyone. Doug

    Aeroprakt A22 Foxbat

    This little aircraft has recently become one of my favorites to fly. Does anyone know whether or not any modifications have been made to this plane to incorporate a heading indicator guage or full fledge autopilot? One can set the autopilot to select an altitude, but can't find a way to select heading/course. I've tried the Direct-To option on the GPS to set a destination course, but the plane does not follow it. If I let go of my controller the plane starts to fly in circles as if it was part of a Nascar race! If there is no fix it's not a big deal, just thought I'd ask. Thank you.
