  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. Thanks. I'm trying to do a video on the Majestic Dash8 Q400 now. IBOMiles

  6. Maddog MD80 FMC and SIDs STARs

    Wow I've been away from this topic a long time. 11/2014 was a life changing time for me so I had to shelf this hobby. Is KDEN causing CTD still a problem for some?
  7. Problem resolved itself when I downloaded the latest updates.
  8. My flows use the APU during pushback and I usually start Eng#2 at the end of the pushback. However, MCE flows will also support attaching the GPU as part of the engine start procedure. I usually fly with GSX and MCE. As such, I have an established set of flows I go through each time. I started with the flows provided by MCE but quickly realized they were not quite smooth enough. So I referred back to the MJC tutorial and other sources and managed to work out a really good flow. I now fly the Q400 w/ MCE & GSX almost exclusively. However, I find my myself in the cockpit of the Leonardo Maddog MD82 quite often as well. I really love them both. For those of you who like the process of Advanced programming in the FMC such as MNVRs for PVOR, SXTK, Defined WPTS and all the other features, there is a wonderful tutorial in You Tube "The FMC Challenge | Testing the Majestic Dash 8 Q400 Pro FMS".
  9. Looking to buy for cheap: Broken Cessna Rudder pedals to do some DIY imagination
  10. Mephic - How are you coming along with getting familiar with the q400?
  11. I just wanted to chime in on this topic because I invested many hours trying to get a good interaction between me and the crew using scripts. However, my scripts focus primarily on all phases of flight with the aircraft systems and not chit chat. Among other premium aircraft addons, I fly the Majestic Q400 Pilot and Pro editions. MCE has done an excellent job in modeling the Pilot Edition with scripts and direct voice commands. Plus I have my own custom scripts that work very well.
  12. Hey guys, Leonardo's MD-82 is now officially supported. Although I'm not a pilot, I had big fun creating YouTube videos to showcase the availability of MCE's Digital First Officer (DFO). I do not yet have a well established YouTube Channel but you can access the videos from a web search engine. Just search for: MCE SUPPORT FOR MADDOG INTRO MCE SUPPORT FOR MADDOG PART 1 MCE SUPPORT FOR MADDOG PART 2 MCE SUPPORT FOR MADDOG PART 3 Viewing the INTRO first is critical as it sets the stage for viewing PARTS 1 thru 3. PART 1 focuses on cockpit preparations including flight/fuel/weather planning. Parts 2 and 3 cover a round-trip flight between KPIT & KPHL in real time. Watching all of the videos at once is ok if you have much time to spare. A matching flow and checklist file will be available in the next MCE update. Please help by giving MCE your feedback on expanding or changing the DFO duties. Also certain things just don't work the way they should so please comment on those as well. Always a Pleasure . . . . . . . .
