    ILS heading for KATL runway 28/10.

    Just for giggles, I thought I'd look at the stock layout for P3D4 (I no longer use Imaginesim Airports). The stock airport (when viewed with ADE) does not have the 5th runway (10/28). I'll assume that the discrepancy is somewhere in the ImagineSim AFCAD file. Looking at the AirNav website (from charts dated 18Sep14), the heading of the runway (at that time) was 95/275 with ILS frequencies of 111.55 and 111.75 respectively. As FDEdev has pointed out, mag variation changes over time...he is also correct that FSX and P3D use a very dated nav database (which can be updated): http://www.aero.sors.fr/navaids3.html I never fly into/out of KATL in P3D (did way too much of that in my professional life!). I was surprised that the 5th runway was not represented in the latest version of P3D. Anyway, I would probably look to an error with your 3rd party software for the 5th runway. Truthfully, a couple of degrees isn't going to make a big difference on a correctly tuned ILS approach. Rob

    Lear 35 - MACH TRIM Fault

    Hello Scott, Thanks for your reply. I found an older thread here from February last year where someone posted a similar issue...no response to that post for a "fix". https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/504262-mach-trim-warning-light/ A little more troubleshooting...I restored the pre-FSFX Aircraft.cfg file to rule out an issue with that software. The issue persisted following my start-up (illuminated "MACH TRIM" warning). Obviously, I started to think it was an issue with my procedure. After a couple more start ups following when the light illuminates, I found that the light illuminates when switching the pitch trim from primary to secondary (to adjust take off trim using the console switches). The light on the annunciator goes back out after the pitch trim switch is returned from secondary to primary. (Since I hide the yokes and do not (yet) have any switches assigned, I was leaving the pitch trim switch in secondary mode) Issue resolved. Thx, Rob
  3. I'm not sure this is an FSW issue...posting here to see if others have seen this (and can offer a potential fix). Last night, I installed the FSFX Immersion pack for the Learjet 35...two flights since installation of that software and I'm now seeing the "MACH TRIM" fault on the annunciator that will not clear. Can anyone offer a solutions? Thx, Rob
  4. Sorry, but I can't open the above file to see the error. Are you running the exe as an admin? I'd also suggest posting your question on the Aerosoft CRJ Forum...Hans (and others) have been very helpful to sort issues. I initially had a lot of issues with the earlier builds...the latest 1.2+ builds have been much better and the aircraft is much more fun to fly now. Rob

    The real McCoy

    The real aircraft has been for sale for some time...some pictures are posted at Controller.com... https://www.controller.com/listings/aircraft/for-sale/list?Mdltxt=DC-6&mdlx=Contains&Manu=DOUGLAS&qss=1&FullText=douglas+dc-6 Rob Meier
  6. The latest build will not run in P3D V4.1 nor V4.2...requires V4.3.

    P3D V4 Cargo Aircraft Recommendations

    Hello Andrew, I'm not an Air Hauler user, so, I can't comment on what drives "revenue" through that software. Your question is a little vague to me as I believe the two PMDG options are the only two long haul options for V4 at the moment. The Milviz 737 (which was awesome in V3) still has a few bugs in V4...not quite ready for prime time in my opinion. I've just been re-acqainted with the PMDG DC-6(A)...I say that as I wasn't initially a fan due to my penchant for blowing/damaging motors. (Whoda thunk you really do need to read the manuals???) I'll have to admit, I'm really enjoying this aircraft now as I've learned to fly without the AFE...there's a lot to manage if you have a throttle quadrant to manage all power individually. Coupled with the F1 GTN 650, this is an awesome plane, IMHO. Currently flying mostly the Pacific Northwest up to Alaska with the 6...alot of great payware scenery available for this area. Anyway...just a though. Rob

    CDI Glideslope Not Working

    Mike, My request just before your's went unanswered...be sure you activate the ILS approach on the GTN (it cannot be in "suspend" mode or the G/S capture will not activate. It took me a little bit to figure it out...I was used to having duplicate NAV1 radios in other aircraft I was using with the GTN...I hadn't seen this issue before (obviously, the only NAV1 frequency for the DC-6 is through the GTN). Anyway, activating the appraoch on the GTN prior to ILS localizer/glidescope capture and then activating the A/P approach works flawlessly for me on ILS approaches down to DH (but remember, you have to be below the G/S capture for it to work!). Good luck! Rob Meier

    CDI Glideslope Not Working

    I apologize in advance for tagging onto an older thread...maybe my question was answered on the first page of this thread... I've just gotten back into flying the DC-6 (after purchasing some new Orbx Alaska scenery!). I've finally figured out how to fly this great aircraft without the AFE, start-up to shutdown. For the life of me, on my ILS approaches, I cannot figure out how to get the glide slope capture...the localizer is working fine. I've tried with the Altitude Control both off and on, neither will capture the G/S signal (the plane continues on level flight after the intercept). I've searched the POH and this forum, this thread is the closest to what I'm observing on ILS approaches. I'm using the F1 GTN 650 in P3D v4.3 If I read/understood correctly, the G/S capture (failure/bug) is a known issue with the F1 GTN to be resolved in a future update...can this be verified/clarified? Thanks, Rob Meier

    5512 USG Tank Capacity MOD Status

    I've been following this post with interest...has anyone else noticed that there already exists an "A" and "B" fuel configuration in the 6B air file? I've used the B configuration without issue.

    ProATC/X flight plans compatible for aircraft?

    Gaz, No worries with ProATCX flight planning...I usually copy the flight plan directly from either SimBrief (or Flightaware) into ProATCX during my flight planning...the ProATCX software will export flight plans to several popular 3rd party add-ons, including the AS Airbus. Rob

    UK2000 Gatwick for P3Dv4

    Gaz, I've been using Pro-ATC-X for several years, for both Commercial and GA flights (with the "TAIL" ID modification). The last upgrade, a few months back, make this ATC software virtually trouble free. I don't use online (Vatsim), only Pro-ATC-X. No problems together with Ultimate Traffic Live. Highly recommended for a "non-voice" activated ATC simulation. Rob

    QW787 P3Dv4 - first impressions?

    This thread is getting off track. Past experience shows that if it doesn't stay on point it will be shut down. I am interested in this aircraft and the current "technical issues" (real or perceived) related to the current software release. I'd hate to see this thread closed this early after release. For me, my simple view is what details/issues would keep a "real world" aircraft "grounded"? If the software release currently has those limitations, I likely won't buy it. The consumer always has the last choice on how to spend their money. Please, let's try to keep this thread on point and civilized.

    P3D v4.2 Hangs (Process Lasso Bug)

    RESOLVED! Sorry for the wild goose chase!!! As I did some additional troubleshooting, I was seeing other Application Faults with different (non-GPS) aircraft. Ultimately, issue was tracked down to Process Lasso (something was corrupting my saved hardware profile) and I could see the CPU affinities were changing. I tried to save a new profile to no avail. I've un-installed Process Lasso and all is well in the world of P3D v4.2 again! Again...very sorry for the time you took to address my hardware issue. Best regards, Rob

    P3D v4.2 Hangs (Process Lasso Bug)

    Thanks for your reply! This morning, I wanted to see if the fault occurred after engaging the autopilot...my previous flights that may have been the "trigger" as the problem does not appear at sim start-up, but soon after departure. This morning, the weather engine was off as I wanted to rule out Active Sky. Same fault pattern this morning: Event Viewer: - <Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event"> - <System> <Provider Name="Application Error" /> <EventID Qualifiers="0">1000</EventID> <Level>2</Level> <Task>100</Task> <Keywords>0x80000000000000</Keywords> <TimeCreated SystemTime="2018-03-01T14:09:49.034550300Z" /> <EventRecordID>5837</EventRecordID> <Channel>Application</Channel> <Computer>rem</Computer> <Security /> </System> - <EventData> <Data>G530SIM.exe</Data> <Data>0.0.0.0</Data> <Data>4bff0a69</Data> <Data>KRNLSIM.dll</Data> <Data>0.0.0.0</Data> <Data>4bff0a8e</Data> <Data>c0000005</Data> <Data>00037807</Data> <Data>920</Data> <Data>01d3b1659dc49c28</Data> <Data>C:\Program Files (x86)\Garmin\GNS Trainer\GNS\G530SIM.exe</Data> <Data>C:\Program Files (x86)\Garmin\GNS Trainer\GNS\KRNLSIM.dll</Data> <Data>71de136e-ea0b-4f41-81ae-873edf537a71</Data> <Data /> <Data /> </EventData> </Event> RXPGNS2.gau 18/03/01 13:59:54.777 08472 - ] # rxpGNS2.dll version 2.3.10.0 18/03/01 13:59:54.777 08472 INFO ] RXPGNS2_menu.dll 18/02/24 04:07:10.153 02740 - ] # rxpGNS2_menu.dll version 2.0.7.0 18/02/24 04:07:10.164 02740 INFO ] edit panel: G:\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\SimObjects\Airplanes\Aerosoft_DHC6_300_WHEEL\panel\panel.cfg RXPGNSsim.dll 18/03/01 13:59:57.677 08472 - ] # rxpGnsSim64.dll version 2.3.10.0 18/03/01 13:59:57.676 08472 INFO ] 18/03/01 14:00:02.088 00740 INFO ] 18/03/01 14:00:12.338 05796 INFO ] 18/03/01 14:09:53.131 09128 INFO ]
