  1. Thanks Ed - I'll do that. regards
  2. Ed, I have the Mindstar G1000s, and the Avidyne glass and the Mindstar 430s (with the STEC gauge) in the Eaglesoft Cirrus. It mentions on your web site that you need a separate licence to use the Stec on other planes - and it does come up locked 🙂 I am looking to match a Stec 55 with the G1000 without AFCS in a Mooney frame (to match real life). I can't find anywhere to buy/activate the STEC separately. Is it available, and does it work with the Mindstar G1000 ? Failing that does anyone have an STEC gauge working with the Mindstar G1000s ? regards PatrickF

    Add-ons menu not available

    Apologies Jean-Luc after installing latest update I've just realised I was reading an old version of the user manual ! All good - covered well in the current version. regards

    Add-ons menu not available

    Thanks Jean-Luc, all good - installing simconnect fixed it. Had a look in the user manual but no details I could see there. Thanks for the location details - had no chance of finding that ! A clean P3D install does not appear to install Simconnect. My last install must have had it for something else. It would be worth adding a point in the install sequence to make sure it is installed. regards, and thanks again. On to the GTN750 !

    Add-ons menu not available

    Sorry should have said, Have checked all from below and have all the files (XML etc.) in the correct locations as far as I can tell.
  6. Hi, I've just rebuilt a clean machine. Am running P3Dv3 under Win 10. Have loaded RXP GNS430 very early in build sequence - not much else on. Downloaded a fresh copy but when installed I got a SimConnect_Open failed error in the log and it wasn't working. Then went back and installed version 2.3.7 which I had working well on the previous build. Install went clean - no errors. Have Reality XP GNS V2 in the Options/Add-Ons menu and it is enabled but have no Addon option on the top menu to add/configure the RXP GNS gauge. Have loaded my old aircraft with all old config files and the units themselves work fine but the configuring menu is not available in the sim to set up and add to new aircraft. Have uninstalled and retried a couple of times. Have the GTN750 to load as well and am keen to catch the bug before I install it. Can you advise which file is the most likely culprit ? reagrds PatrickF

    FPL sequencing issue/bug [solved]

    Firstly a sincere apology to Jean-Luc and the crew, and a thanks for asking a pretty dumb question - "have you updated P3Dv3 to the latest version?" I can't believe I didn't update P3D before highlighting the issue. To be fair also can't believe this one slipped through early versions of P3Dv3 There is obviously a difference in how the RXP guys are coding the AP behavior as the competition GNS430 (M....tar) didn't exhibit the behavior on my set up which is why I never considered it a P3D issue. Anyway suffice to say it's fixed and all modes I've tested work brilliantly. Lesson for all. If you are having any issues update your build to latest release, even if it is a bit of a pain as is the case for P3D. I was avoiding it as I had a nice stable build and didn't want to break it PatrickF

    FPL sequencing issue/bug [solved]

    Jean-Luc, I've done some more testing and am experiencing the issue more broadly. When I am in NAV mode and select a different waypoint using the direct to key the GPS all works fine but as outlined above the autopilot doesn't respond correctly. It may be isolated to my own set up, although I am running a clean P3D V3 rig and testing on default aircraft so would be surprised if this was the case. I will wait until I have installed the upcoming update to do more testing and report back. regards

    FPL sequencing issue/bug [solved]

    Jean-Luc, I'll try a few more combinations. As I said GPS working fine - just not commanding aircraft in NAV or GPSS mode when waypoints changed in FPL. Probably easiest if I do a very short piece of video to illustrate - hard to explain in shots. Will when I get back to machine. thx

    FPL sequencing issue/bug [solved]

    Thanks, I am sure it is AP coupling related in some form. The response in the GNS is exactly as expected and in each case the new waypoint, or route is highlighted in magenta in the FPL and map on the unit. It is also sent correctly to the CDI needles, or glass in the Cirrus case The updated NAV instruction or flightplan just isn't sent to the plane and the plane continues to follow an old NAV command. It's as if changing in the FPL doesn't initiate a trigger/reset /refresh Have also noted the issue is the same whether you add waypoints to an existing plan or highlight different ones and use -> I'll keep playing and log any other patterns I notice.

  11. Firstly Jean-Luc and the guys - great job !! Have been waiting for this since Christmas and it hasn't disappointed. I swung over to P3D some time back but have been frustrated with no realistic 430 to practice IFR. Don't expect to get the 10+ years of use I got out of version 1 but am looking forward to pushing it. Have come across an issue that I'm pretty sure is a bug. I first noticed it when I added an approach to a flight plan then couldn't get the Autopilot to pick up a change to selected way point. Am using the standard keying - FPL then curser to pick new target waypoint then -> to activate direct to or ->/-> to activate leg. All works fine in the GPS but autopilot, and plane stays on last leg selected. After this I have tried it when doing en-route way point changes with same result. Have tried doing a switch to HDG and back to NAV to reset but no joy. Have also tried various combinations of GPS to autopilot in the settings screen. Finally tried it in the base C172 to make sure it wasn't a problem with the CIrrus I was in but am getting same result. Hope we can fix. regards PatrickF

    G1000 in the DA40

    Thanks Ed, not a problem - it's all working fine. Thought it was worth checking that I hadn't missed something as the DA40 is listed as a supported style for the G1000.ini file (style 6) regards
  13. I have the Mindstar G1000 and it is working beautifully. I have installed it successfully in a number of Aircraft both with AFCS and separate Autopilots. I have a working version of each in the Lionheart DA40 using the Diamond DA-40 style. I have not been able to do a version with the GFC-700 buttons on the MFD only as in the real aircraft. ref: I have tried combining the Non AFCS PFD with the AFCS MFD but this doesn't seem to work. Is there a way to achieve it ? PatrickF
  14. Ed, thanks to your support guys for great service this morning. Still a couple of little glitches but they have solved the key fault, and uncovered a couple of buried issues to sort. Happy to say the package is fantastic now it's working. Thanks again guys - great service. PatrickF

    TEASER: new things to come...

    Jean-Luc, Christmas a week late. I'm stunned - thx ! Just dropped onto the RXP site to check if there was any file update on the old FSX 430/530 before I installed. I've swung over to P3D but have been frustrated with no realistic G430 to practice IFR so have just done just done a clean FSX install with the Eaglesoft SR20 to drop my old RXP unit into. Now I'll wait............and don't bother with any discount for me - 10+ years of fault free operation out of a piece of software is great value. regards
