  1. Its been awhile since my last video and many changes have occurred. I'm no longer on the east coast, I'm now out in the heartland. Also my Rig has had a bunch of upgrades since my last video 1. NVIDIA from GTX 770 to 1070 2. RAM from 4gb to 8gb 3. Mobo swap z97k from z87k (2 ram slots shorted out) 4. Added 2 SSDs 240gb & 128gb 5. P3Dv4 Pro installed on 240gb 6. FSX reinstalled on 128gb 7. Added Dual Monitor setup (2 used Samsung Sync Master Monitors w/ 1920 x 1200 installed.) Retired my AOC 1280 x 1024 8. Added amazing Sony Audio Sound System & 7 band EQ for realism. Cost peanuts at the local thrift store. 9. Upgraded to GSX Level 2 10. Upgraded to EZdok v2.6 11. Added Skyforce 3D and aircraft payware specifically for P3Dv4 ________________________________________________________________________________________ This new video is again flying the BAE-146 RJ70 under FSX Boxed Off-loaded various GUIs and popup menus to a 2nd monitor for FSX ATC and messages, REX/E+OD, MCE, GSX , EZDOK panel and whatever else I can. This flight begins on the tarmac opposed to the cockpit. In my attempt to improve realism, this video includes my interaction in the virtual world with the aircraft, the fuel truck driver and the catering service loader. The Ezdok manages all the view changes MCE handles all voice recognition and verbal responses from the FO and Ground Crew. Although P3Dv4 is installed, it does not yet support BAE-146 Aircraft. Before we get started on the flight, I have a few interesting observations: a. Like the MADDOG in the real world, the BAE 146 has reached the end of its useful life as a regional jet and it's being retired from service. b. I really like this plane. Although its not as sophisticated as the PMDG, Leonardo and Majestic offerings, its one of my favorite aircraft to pushback, I especially like the lighted rocker switches in the overhead panel. Night flying is just so cool. c. The QW BAE 146 Ultimate Collection consists of 6 aircraft which are actually 3 aircraft with 2 different instrument panels They are the: BAE 100, 200, 300 - with avionics that are rather semi- automatic and require more pilot input BAE Avro Jet RJ 70, 85, 100 - with more modern automatic avionics.

  3. I just posted a 3 PART FULL FLIGHT VIDEO in the Avro Jet RJ70 <<< KSUS to KBNA>>> Multi Crew Experience crew coordination software is used extensively. The flight is just under 3 hours long but segmented into three parts; Part 1 from cold and dark at the gate in KSUS to 7000' climb out Part 2 from 7000' climbing to FL310 and then descending to 5000' for final approach Part 3 Final approach to cold and dark at the gate in KBNA All phases of flight are coordinated with MCE. Voice recognition accuracy is very close to 100%. I'm still working to improve accuracy. KSUS TO KBNA: PART 1 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bE_ps9rW120 PART 2 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KxoGk7ldEJI PART 3 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_QTJ7SDDXI
  4. Replaced the prior video above with these: KSUS TO KBNA: PART 1 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bE_ps9rW120 PART 2 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KxoGk7ldEJI PART 3 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_QTJ7SDDXI
  5. I recently purchased the BAE 146 Ultimate Collection. I decided to start working on the BAE 146 Avro Jet RJ70. I finishing up the video now. Although not as feature-rich as the Q400 or Maddog, its a nice aircraft in its own right. I'm not disappointed. I've been flying it for a few weeks and its great to hand fly. ILS works great . Instrument panel lighting is very ingenious (and totally different from the Dash or Maddog). Night flying in this bird is amazing. I will be posting the daytime flight video soon. Its also a full flight (gate to gate) with no shortcuts. KSUS to KBNA with an ILS approach into runway 20R. All flows and checklists are performed including startup and shutdown. MCE is used extensively wherever possible. Voice recognition (i.e. FO response to my commands) was good but could be better with more tweaking. When I post the night flight I will tweak the flows and checklists to improve on the voice recognition..
  6. I think I have a pretty decent elegant fix for 2D panels. It was a long process but in the end it was worth it. I simply rearranged the commands in the voice script file so that all the 2D panels were group together in tandem. Then I noticed that most of the 2D panel switches were for the upper panel. So now I know when the 2D panel switches are coming and I plan for that during my cockpit preparation flows. And voila, it's not a problem anymore. Of course it's not as smooth as FSX, but it's a significant Improvement. I'm doing a video that will show this and I plan on posting it for others to consider as an option or work-around. However the after takeoff flow is somewhat of a nightmare because the switches are primarily on the glare shield and center console. I'm considering performing these functions myself and not involve the first officer because it significantly interferes with the interaction between me and the default ATC
  7. Discovered error in pack 1 and 2 switch command. It’s backwards. ______________ Voice Command: "Pack1 or 2 to off" FO Action: Pack 1 and 2 switches to auto ___________________ Voice Command: "Pack1 or 2 to auto" FO Action: Pack 1 and 2 switches to off Fred
  8. IFR Flying Learning to properly fly the Maddog and the Majestic DH8D (Dash8) is a major undertaking for me because these are very sophisticated simulations of the real aircraft. Default aircraft in FSX is too unrealistic (i.e. gamey) and I was beginning to loose interest in FSX. These two aircraft are a real challenge for me. I'm fascinated by the whole ATP experience. Just flying around aimlessly is boring. Learning flight planning, aircraft systems, flight deck flows and checklists of these aircraft is really necessary for me to keep my interest. That said, just these two aircraft is more than a handful for me. At this point I suppose I can get involved with others. I'm aware of the PMDG Boeing NGX but decided to wait and spent time with the Maddog and the Dash8 first because the actual aircraft is more hands-on to fly. Boeings almost fly themselves. VFR Flying I haven't done much of this. It has its own unique challenges and I plan to do more VFR flying now that these two IFR videos are finished. So far I don't have any payware aircraft. However videos of offerings from Carenado & MILVIZ civilian aircraft look really good. I get promotional emails from other aircraft developers as well. There is so much product out there to choose from. I'm less interested in military aircraft for the reasons mentioned above. I welcome any suggestions.
  9. I finally finished the it. Just posted the video on Youtube last night. Its a deep and verbose systems flow and checklist tutorial. I'm trying to decide which plane to do next.

    BUG REPORT VOXATC FOR P3DV4 URGENT

    I'm not sure I understand your issue. Are you saying Voxatc is erasing waypoints in the flight plan currently in use or all flight plans on your HDD or SSD?
  11. Thanks. I'm trying to do a video on the Majestic Dash8 Q400 now. IBOMiles
