    Touchdown front wheel sound on a loop

    No, no sound third party things. I did notice however that i get this also with the F2 (R for me) key so the Saitek throttle system is not the issue. I'll try to record a video with sound so you guys can hear it

    Touchdown front wheel sound on a loop

    Thank you for your reply. I do not have FSUIPC, or better not the paid version. I will move the reverse thrust er to another axis and see if that fixes it.

    Touchdown front wheel sound on a loop

    Not sure this is a PMDG issue but checking....I’m having this weird problem when engaging the thrust reverse with my saitek throttle lever. I hear the front wheel touchdown sound once which is normal but then it repeats again on a loop as if i was slamming the nose over and over on the asphalt. I don’t have this when I use the R button. The lever I use is programmed on reverse thrust quickly with repetition. I tried without "repetition" but then i get no thrust reverse at all. Any suggestions?

    Can't change STAR once selected

    Hi. Sorry yes I meant Sid. Not star. Yes reselecting the runway (same or different one) doesn’t do it. I did not try to back out the route completely. What’s the best way to do this? Select another random destination and the again the desired one, is there a way to reset/delete a route? btw. I remember that this was not a problem until few months ago, meaning few updates ago (can’t tell which one with all the adds on)

    Can't change STAR once selected

    I am not sure if this is normal but here is what is happening, in the FMC when i select a runway for departure (on the right side of the display) and then a STAR (on the left side) I get stuck with that STAR and if i decide i want another STAR (still available in the menu of all possible STARs for that runway) I can't seem to change it. Is it me or else?

    On average, how much time do you take to get into the air?

    If the wife and kid are around takes me 10-15 min. If i am alone then 20-25. But depends also if you include time for SimBrief and flight plan download. Topcat and other things. Also depend how long it takes for the GSX fuel truck to arrive. Assuming SimBrief is already done and Top cat is up and running then from cold and dark to taxing my times are the ones i mention above

    737 immersion

    I like it too but unfortunately on the p3d recording the immersion effects are not recorded

    Flaps question

    Thank you. This helps a lot. I’m still puzzled about high altitude landings. Is there a rule for those for the 737 and 738.

    Flaps question

    Flight school question. Under what circumstances does one need to set flaps differently from the normal/usual 30? Altitude? Wind? Can u make some simple examples? One example I can think of is high altitude landings and full flaps to compensate for lower air density but is this right? What else?

    how do I set altitude for autopilot landings

    If utolandings were the norm i would be afraid that pilots would forget how to really fly a plane manually when needed, glad is not

    PMDG737 and P3D41

    yes! but once you load P3D 4.1 load your a) saved PMDG scenario only or b) start from a bran new/fresh new PMDG flight! do not load a Scenario>then End Scenario> and then New Scenario> and then your saved PMDG Scenario because that will mess up things, in my case the fuel tank numbers. In other words do not load a scenario on top of the previous one even if you ended it.

    Clean Cockpit Textures?

    I actually find the dirt on the glass displays and worn out fabric by the pilots shoes on left and right side of the yoke to be quite realistic, I can picture them leaning back and putting their feet up for catnaps. Now if, in the name of this realism, i could wipe them clean with my mouse that would be the quintessence of realism :)

    P3Dv4.1 and Ultimate Traffic Live question

    yeah, makes sense. thanks

    P3Dv4.1 and Ultimate Traffic Live question

    in UTLive appliction in the SImulation tab there are two buttons on the lower right side: Save Setting and Start Simulation and I wonder what is the Start Simulation button for if one doesn't launch the app at all. I guess it gets launched as soon as you launch P3d...but the manual doesnt say so. Anyway thanks for the feedback

    P3Dv4.1 and Ultimate Traffic Live question

    so If understand this correctly, I don’t need to launch the UTLive app on my desktop prior to fly in P3d. So why is that inside UTLive program there is a button to connect live to traffic and a timer ticking?
