    ALTN Uplink

    Correct. The option can be turned off in the PMDG setup pages, through the CDU. Marcel Durieux

    Brake Temperature

    Could it be you're not waiting long enough before looking? It takes a while for the temperature to reach the sensors. Per the FCTM: Marcel Durieux

    Recommendation for a VA

    You're right. I guess those legs will now become part of the historical flight routes. Marcel

    Recommendation for a VA

    No, but their partner airlines do (see attached). Marcel Durieux

    Recommendation for a VA

    AFVA (Air France / KLM Virtual Airlines, afva.net) has many real-life routes for both aircraft. The Q400 causes some reporting issues with their ACARS, but that's an issue for flight reviewers, not for pilots, and the plane is flown regularly on that VA. I hope that's helpful. Marcel Durieux

    Tutorial: Flight from Sydney to Vancouver

    Great! Thank you for making this! Marcel
  7. I think this is the appropriate behavior. The relevant section of the FCOM is here (page 2.20.17): The "flight configuration" they're talking about is to allow cabin pressurization. The warning indicates equipment cooling is operating in alternate mode. Marcel Durieux

    Why are bush flying VA’s dead?

    Wow, that's excellent! I'll have to try that. Marcel Durieux

    NO LAND 3 EICAS Message

    Hello - I can't speak to the NO LAND 3 issue, although I've experienced it myself at times. As to your second question: You do this by setting switching APP on the audio panel ON (see attached screenshot). A small light next to it will come on to indicate it's active. The selector next to it must be set to the appropriate receiver (typically L). I hope that helps! Marcel Durieux

    Not in any need at this moment, but thank you very much for your offer. This is the AVSIM community at its best! Marcel Durieux

    Why are bush flying VA’s dead?

    All true. There are some cool little bush flying airlines though that work on quite regular schedules (Coastal Aviation in Tanzania comes to mind) that would be great fun to fly for. Maybe a project for someone...? Marcel Durieux

    KR 87 TSO ADF countdown timer

    Thank you. Will keep that in mind. Didn't know, though, if I was doing something wrong or whether the functionality was simply not ther, that's why I posted it here instead of putting in a ticket. Marcel Durieux
  13. Hi all - First, thanks for this wonderful DC-6 model! I have a quick question about the KR 87 ADF receiver. The real-life version has a (very useful) countdown timer mode (see attached segment from the Bendix manual) that is activated by holding down the SET/RST button. I can't get this to work on the Cloudmaster (FSX-SE). Is it not modeled? If not, can this functionality be added (even the A2A Skylane has it...)? Thanks! Marcel Durieux

    737NGX Clock behavior on power down

    Thanks. Good idea. I have submitted a ticket, and they'll pass it on to the technical team. Marcel Durieux

    Why Engine Health indicators? Wear and Tear.

    Hi all - I'd like to get some more info on the "engine health" markers. I can't find in the manual what specifically happens to the engines when their "health" deteriorates. I.e. are the various systems of the engine modeled and there's an increasing chance of any of them failing (with of course different results depending of the system failed), or is there just an increased likelihood of the engine not starting or quitting in flight? I hope and assume it's the former... If so, would it be possible to make these specific failures available to the user, as in the wonderful failure systems of the PMDG Boeing series?? Really learning to fly an airplane does involve knowing how to deal with the various things that can go wrong, and being able to model that flexibly (with service-based failures, etc) is one of the great features of the Boeing series. I admit that I really miss that in the DC-6. It's a wonderful plane and great fun to fly, but I'd like my failure system to be a bit more sophisticated than "green-yellow-amber-red"! I understand from a previous post on this topic that a detailed failure system is not feasible in XP, but it should be in FSX-SE, right? I know that others have brought this up as well, but I would like to make a plea again for an update that includes a PMDG-caliber failure system... Thanks for bringing us these wonderful simulations!
