  1. Aaannnnd both pilots have been... SUSPENDED!! No great surprise. This will be the case that folks cite "When the FAA says NO they mean NO!" as a warning not to cross the Feds.😁 Have to wonder how long the YouTubers will continue trying to monetize their aviation adventures by doing... well, not smart and/or unapproved stunts. In this case at least one of the pilots was also fined almost $5000US. More here: https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/faa-suspends-licenses-two-pilots-involved-failed-red-bull-stunt-rcna28506
  2. Doesn't matter where you save it to. The only priority is remembering where you saved it to.😁 Once downloaded, go to that location and install the update. After the update is installed, I have a location on one of my storage drives where I save the update exe file. I usually keep the two previous updates... although I've never had to revert to one of them. Reality XP updates work pretty with a minimum of hassles (I just wish Garmin could learn some things from Jean Luc! Garmin updates are like a... journey.🤬😁).
  3. A link that includes the FAA's Denial of Petition before the flight: https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/failed-plane-swap-stunt-prompts-faa-investigation/story?id=84295598
  4. As it turns out, the FAA had previously denied the organizer's request to fly this stunt. So now, the Feds are looking into Red Bull's operation to "switch pilots between two airplanes"... kinda the same way they investigated Trevor Jacob. 😬
  5. In Lawy's link is the solution to removing the ernments.xyz malware from your iPad's Safari browser. On my iPad I use "AdBlock Pro for Safari" from the App Store.
  6. Yep and as well, the two fire extinguishers stuffed in his pants didn't add much to his mediocre performance. All in all, pretty pathetic.
  7. It had to be... just too much evidence that he planned to crash the airplane. Maybe the FAA's decision will dissuade other attention/$$ seekers from doing something as stupid. https://www.techspot.com/news/94310-youtuber-loses-pilot-license-after-faa-claims-intentionally.html
  8. DLSS 2.3 doesn't work in Prepar3D. And perhaps Nvidia never will make a profile for this sim.
  9. Full screen here. Indeed, I set my resolution in the sim to 1920x1080 (same aspect ratio as my monitor)... didn't make a difference. I checked both GPU usage and CPU usage in MSI Afterburner thru several test flights and saw no difference. I tested in P3Dv5.3 HF2 only.
  10. Same experience here on a 2080 Super/1440 res monitor. The downside you mentioned makes the feature not worthwhile for me.
  11. Could this be yet another Nvidia money grab? Techspot has their RTX 3090Ti review up. I like the "eLeash description above... maybe Nvidia should be using that on their execs and marketing folks?😀
  12. A hidden gem is 2O1 Gansner Field in Quincy CA. It's part of the KBLU Blue Canyon package. I've flown into 2O1 numerous times over the years, and KBLU once... for me Orbx's 2O1 is the winner.
  13. The F1 GTN and the Reality XP GTN are entirely separate purchases. The latter simply cannot replace the former. Your best bet is to completely remove the F1 GTN from your computer (along with any Garmin software) and then install the Reailty XP product (during installation you'll be given a link to the latest Garmin Trainer download).
  14. Not surprisingly, hackers are now using certificates stolen during the attack on Nvidia to allow malicious drivers and apps to be installed in Windows. https://www.guru3d.com/news-story/hackers-use-stolen-nvidia-certificates-to-conceal-malware.html We should all be vary cautious about our Nvidia downloads... only download from a trusted site (preferably directly from Nvidia), and pay attention if your AV software flags the download.
  15. Now Lapsus$ is threatening to release some of the information they hacked... including driver GPU firmware and driver details. Might be a good time to take a respite from installing GPU drivers until the dust settles on all this. It's not like Nvidia (or AMD) places any great importance on us flight simmers as customers! 😝 https://www.techspot.com/news/93586-nvidia-attackers-threaten-leak-mining-limiter-bypass-algorithm.html
