    Enjoy building RC Aircraft have several Sigs and Stick Builts (No Plans). Met a lot of very nice people at various locations for RC aircraft. Enjoy studying WWll aircraft and the pilots that flew them. A major goal to make it to Duxford.

  • About Me
    Consider myself very privelaged to have grown up around airplanes. Some of my fondest memories flying with my father in a Stearman 75, 172 and a 310G. Always wanted to get a PPL and managed to get a scholarship to Spartan School Of Aeronatics for a A&E. Instead of accepting the scholarship joined the USMC in the late 60s. Happily married and enjoy the retirement years with our family and grand children. Always had a love for airplanes and flying simulated aircraft brings back a lot of great memories. Thank You for taking the time to read my profile.

  1. AVSIM Prepar3D Guide

    Appreciate all of the hard work you put into your guide. The guide as Jim mentioned is very complete. Explanations are very informative and easy to follow. Thank You Larry
  2. Westman thank you for the reply, I7 4960X L2 & L3 Cache 16.5 MB. I7 4930K L2 & L3 Cache 13.5 MB. You are correct concerning the O.C. Luck of the Lottery. SLI Mode No. 2 Monitors Primary 3440 x 1440 Ultra Wide, Second Monitor 1920 x 1080 24 In. The IMC is degrading is normal for a high O.C.. How much they degrade over a period of time is relevant to the quality of the chip, V-Core V & Temps. Will agree the I7 4960X maybe a 2% Gain Luck of the Lottery could be worse. Why I am considering a new build. LGA 1151 maybe a LGA 2011-V3 maybe a 8% Gain. I7 4930K new 4.4 Ghz at 1.30v V-Core_4.5 GHz V-Core 1.40v Is average chip. Current V-Core : 4.4 Ghz 1.375v, 4.5 GHz 1.48v will not clock to 4.5 Ghz V-Core @ 1.45v is to high for 24/7 use. Memory: G-Skill 2133 MHz 9-11-10-24 1.65v Thank You LarryA
  3. I would appreciate some recommendations in re guards to up grading the current system listed below. The I7 4930K has a bad I.M.C. (Intel Memory Controller) and needs to be replaced with a I7 4960X. This system is used for P3D v3.5 & FSX. A new I7 4960X rather than building a new LGA 1151 with a I7 6700K? Current P3D & FSX settings are set very high and both sims run smoothe as silk with complicated aircraft with the I7 4930K at 4.4GHz. LGA 1151 limited to one GPU installed at 16x. If 2 GPUs are installed 8X. Current system LGA 2011 both GPUs run at 16x. LGA 2011 and LGA 1151 has PCIe 3.0 I7 6700K has 4 Cores compared to the I7 4960X has 6 cores. The I7 4960X has dropped in price. $300.00 from the original $1100.00. Could build a LGA 1151, I7 6700K with DDR4 would cost more than the I7 4960X by 500.00 Plus. I7 6700K with one GTX 780 S.C. would be a down grade? Need to run the second monitor on one GPU. Current System: CPU I7 4930K was clocked at 4.5 GHz reduced the O.C. to 4.0 GHz. Bad I.M.C.. Mother Board Asus Rampage lV Black Edition. (Have 2 of these mother boards one new box is still sealed). 16 GBs of 2133 MHz C9-10-11 Have 2 kits 1 box never opened. GTX 780 S.C. SLI no. Both run at 16X. Monitors 3440 x 1440 Ultra Wide and one 1920 x 1080. Thank You & Have a Great day LarryA
  4. First want to say thank you for taking on the project. Preparing to make a large Mesh Purchase saved me a lot of pennies better put Dollars. Please understand my knowledge is limited read thru the forums at my age get a bit confused. Tried to torrent could not figure out how too. Again my lack of knowledge. Have FSGenesis world installed. it is my understanding & please correct me if I am wrong. FSX will automatically load the best Mesh (sorry not technical)? Tried to watch the video on how to install when accessed the link shows not available. May be issue on my end? Should be able to install FS Genesis in its own scenery folder and enable or disable inside of the scenery library? Again I think FSX will automatically select the best Mesh for the area you are flying in? Did this please tell me if this is the correct procedure. FSX installed on D: Drive all add on scenery is installed to the E: Drive. 1. E: Drive/Addon Scenery/FreeMeshX-Asia/Scenery Inside the Scenery folder is 7 .bgl files. The reason for installing this method if FSX "heaven for bid" breaks do not need to re install any scenery folders. 2. Layering the FreeMeshX in scenery library. Below all UTX, Land Class folders & above all standard FSX folders. Is this correct or should the Mesh be the first items listed in the Scenery Library Tree? 3. Could use some help trying to figure out how to flatten this area around Chon Buri Code VTBT. Need a simple tool or if some one knows how would ask for a fixed bgl file "Please". One of the primary airports I fly out of. Yes the mountains are located off the end of the airport. The elevated water is a small stream runs into the Thai Sea to the south elevation is a bit lower than the airport. After installing the mesh did notice the mountains are a lot more realistic. Thank You. Sadly the stream is elevated as well. This is a FSX Oooops. Did try a flattening tool the when used the buildings at the airport and runway disappear. Again apologize for the lack of knowledge and technical terms thank you for reading & responses. Larry
