    That would be a great feature, Keven. Thanks

    @grzegorz ChasePlane is a leader in this type of add-on, is capable of what you ask and, in my opinion, is a wonderful application for personal use and building training videos. CP also provides updates regularly, so you can look forward to improvements.

    This is an excellent software, a game-changer actually. Agree with the preceding posts.

    Learjet 35A - Random Config Questions

    @Greggy_D Would I be able to use the Panel Texture Update? I just downloaded my aircraft yesterday and it is ver 3. The texture update I found says it is for ver 2.7 and below. @ThomasAH Found the lights on the wall, but still not the overhead ones :( Regarding the mod, is it possible to pick and choose what changes are implemented? I would like to use the save setting to begin with but am hesitant to load all features until I am more familiar with the plane. @scottb613 The app for managing profiles is going to happen. Purchased and installed the WX Radar. Easy breezy. Just what I was hoping for. With LittleNavMap running on a remote laptop, I have the primary bases covered. Actually in my last flight I took off using 90% thrust then, after positive climb and gear up, I engaged the AP, set VS to 2500, and was successful at managing airspeed right up to FL360. Wonderful flight from CYVR to CYYC. Thanks, everyone, for your invaluable support today. Keep it coming...

    Learjet 35A - Random Config Questions

    @scottb613 Thanks for the quick response, and solid tips. I already have REX Texture Direct so will look into their radar. Mapping is a great idea. Two more questions: 5) Can the Altimeter be changed from metric to imperial, so it matches readings on the Alt Select? Or can the AS be changed to metric? Either way would be better than current. 6) Can the volume be tweaked? I would like to reduce in-cockpit engine noise, slightly increase ATC, and significantly increase engine sound when following the aircraft. I know a lot of this can be done in P3D, but my settings there are fine for all other planes; only the Lear needs slight adjustment.
  7. Hi: I just purchased this aircraft for P3D4, am in the learning curve, and thought one thread here for quick, random questions maybe beneficial: 1) In the previous flight I used the Hanger to return the plane to Cold and Dark (with door locked, chocks, all switches off, GPU connected, brakes on, throttles locked, etc). When I start the next flight, however, it returns to the semi-powered state. Is there a way to permanently set the plane to Cold and Dark (with the above config)? 2) I am unable to locate the cockpit overhead light. Location? 3) Can specific fuel quantities be entered using Flysimware's popups? 4) Is there an easier way to integrate radar, something like the way the installer recognized my GTN 750? (I already have Active Sky Next. And, yes, I read the devs instructions, and the posts here.)
  8. This is a great software, and the last update made it even better. I also want to thank Alexander for helping me to set up a remote machine to run the app. And, lastly, the manual provided is clear and concise. Five star rating!

    Managing Views in P3D4

    I was watching the Q8Pilot video and he said that Chaseplane should be allowed to clear the user's current key maps. Why is this necessary, especially for someone like me who enjoys tweaking both key and yoke assignments, most of them have nothing to do with views (for example, "A" is used to toggle the autopilot, "X" toggles the autopilot menu, and "G" toggles the Garmin 750). On another note, why does Chaseplane need a network connection? Is the connection only needed during install, or is it a permanent requirement? Just curious.

    Managing Views in P3D4

    Is the only way to access my pre-made cameras by right-clicking on the screen? Seems counter-intuitive, and hard to do when coming in on approach or final. A quick way to toggle through these custom views would be most welcome...

    Managing Views in P3D4

    I used EZdock in FSX years ago, with undesirable effects as it reset all my own key maps. It was probably my own fault as I must have clicked the wrong button during installation and setup. Nonetheless... Is Chaseplane more user-friendly?

    Managing Views in P3D4

    Can someone point me to the best thread for setting up my views. Specifically, I am trying to map my keyboard to the "upperhead panel 00" that is on the menu bar: Views/ Change View/ Cockpit. This view is the straight-on view of the overhead switches on Carenado's Piper PA31T Cheyenne. Also I have created some custom views and find them by right-clicking on the screen. But can these also be mapped? Really appreciate the help.

    GTN 750/650 Complete - A few Questions

    Thanks, Bill and Shawn. Great option. I am in exploration mode for a better ATC system, and am also encouraged to hear that the devs are working on the crossfill option.
