  1. RW, thanks man, that does make it work. Appreciate the help. Happy flying. Walt
  2. John Thank you very much. i appreciate your help on this. Walt (Happy Flying my friend)
  3. Hi. In the CJ4, when I load a chart in the MFD, the toggle (Up,Down,Left,Right) switch is not working. It use to work but now it doesn't scroll. It used it to scroll the charts in the MFD so you could see the whole chart. Any idea why it's nt working? Thanks Walt (Happy Flying)
  4. I'll give it a shot and Thank you everyone for your support. It is greatly appreciated. From one pilot to another, "Happy Flying." I'll wave to you as I pass 30,000'
  5. Can't hurt right Todd. I'll give it a try and thank you. Walt
  6. Entered a flight KOXC to KHFD, Set GPS Mode, Flight Plan shows in MFD, but the DIST is blank in the PFD. Shows KOXC - KHFD and no distance displayed. Took a screen shot but I don't know how to post it on here. Insert from URL ? ? ? Image is on my desk top. Also in the 182 I can't adjust the distance in or out with the Garmin distance knob. When I put my mouse cursor on or by the knob, nothing. Should show a rotation arrow but it doesn't show. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You Walt (Happy Flying)
  7. Exactly, right now it went back to working, but will have to see if it comes back. Thank you Walt
  8. Yes I did that just to make sure. Thanks
  9. Thank you Bob, no problem. I'll wave to you at 3000' when you go by. Walt
  10. Thank you. Using the Honeycomb Yoke and Throttle Quadrant. Have FSUIPC 7 on my computer but haven't used it for any programing. It is a weird issue for sure. I've been flight siming for over 14 years so it's not as if I'm new to the game. but being humble I will never be a know it all, and I will always continue to learn. And at 75 I do have a few issues with remembering things.I didn't know there were USB controller buttons and axis testing utilities. I'll have to research these. But I do want to say Thank You for trying to help me out. See ya ay 4000' 300kts. Have a great day. Walt
  11. Thanks. I'm not sure what that (Clickbait) is. I only come on here as a last resort when I'm stuck. They wanted me to edit my Topic, which I would but I don't know how to edit it. But thank you for informing me of this. Hope I didn't cause a commotion for anyone.
  12. When "I'm on the ground" My rudder and flaps act crazy . I hold Rudder full left and it pops back to center, Hold rudder full right and it pops back to center. Try to set flaps and it flutters back and forth. "Now" this is what's puzzeling to me...... was that as soon as I get airborne, the control functions work fine. Haven't a clue what would cause this.
  13. Not liking this........... Hope MSFS gets this back together like it should be. And thanks, you can fly with me anytime. UPSPILOT handle in MSFS. Thanks again
  14. I agree. I input flpns through Sim brief, Navigraph Charts, or from World Map. Either way plane should follow the inserted flight plan.
  15. Not sure. Do they show up as way points in the flpn?
  16. All of a sudden I am having a problem with my NAV mode. Have a flight plan selected and when I go to Auto Pilot mode select NAV1 or GPS Mode the plane does not follow the flight plan. Even though I have NAV1 or GPS selected, it still does not follow it. Plane will not move to the Magenta flight plan. Never had this problem before so it's not as if I'm doing something wrong. at least (I think.) Any ideas what is going on? Thanks Walt
  17. I fly MSFS2020 with my brother. We entered a flight plan from World. We both picked the Cessna 182. Departing Airport is KLOL Arriving Airport KRNO. When we go to Low Altitude IFR my flight plan shows " KLOL WADDS FMG KRNO" When my brother does this he doesn't get "WADDA or FMG" Just KLOL KRNO. I noticed he does not get waypoints like this on other flight plans too. If you select a from and to, then select low altitude IFR or High Altitude IFR, MSFS 2020 should be adding other waypoints in. Mine does..... but his doesn't. This has me baffeled why he is having this problem. Anyone have any ideas I can give him to help him out? Thanks Walt and Happy Flying
  18. -This is driving me nuts. Elevator in the yoke is assigned to the elevator Axis, nothing else assigned to it. Auto pilot not on and it still does it. Pull up on the yoke, elevator goes up for about 2-3 seconds and drops back down to center. Push forward, elevator goes down for a few seconds and pops back up to center. Changed the yoke to the default selection and it still does it. The last thing I did before this started to happen was to adjust the rudder pedal sensitivity to less. But that should not have anything to do with the elevator, at least not from the rudder pedals. There has to be something right in front of my face and I'm just not seeing it. Tried different planes to see if it happens to them too and it does, same problem. One of my awesome follow pilots will pull through for me I hope. Anyways I wish all of you Happy flying, I'll be up soon I hope. And thanks, hope to hear of a solution soon. Walt
  19. All of a sudden I can't take off. I have the honeycomb Yoke and Bravo Throttle Quad. I noticed that when I'm on the ground and test the control surfaces. When I pull back the elevator goes up and snaps right back to center. If I push in the elevator goes down and then snaps right back to center. checked the profile and everything seems to be ok. Any ideas why this is happening, Thanks Walt
  20. May have something there. Let me remove the WT G3000 and seeeeeee if everything works again. Thank You I'll let you know. Not sure how to find you direct in the forum though.
  21. Experimenting with a few flight plans. Did one with Navigraph and imported it into MSFS2020. Did one with Simbrief and imported it into MSFS 2020. Problem seems to be in the Citation Latitude, when I try to use the PROC function for Departure, Arrival and Approach selections. Again with the test flight from KOXC to KBDL, I want to select Runway 33 for my approach, and I don't want any of the transitions. So the CDU should show KOXC - HADUX at 2500' , HOMEY at 1800' and then KBDL ILS 33. (108.55 @ 328 degrees). So if I created this flight plan and imported it into MSFS. Then when I start MSFS2020 and "LOAD" this plan, should I just select from the PROC (Approach) and enter ILS33 and nothing else. I'm still playing with this to figure it out. Haven't tried another jet though, will try the CJ4 and see if I have the same problem. I do appreciate the feed back tough. Hope you enjoy flying as much as I do.
  22. Doing a short test flight from KOXC to KBDL, Landing RWY ILS33. Entering flight plan in the cdu and in PROC Arrival, I select rwy 33, but I don't want any of the transitions showing to select from. But I can't select none, so how do I bypass of get rid of the transition? When I select ILS rwy 33, flight plan should take me to HADUX then to HOMEY and then land on RWY33. Thanks for any help I can get on this.
  23. Yes, I am doing everything correctly. Have done many many ILS approaches before without any trouble. So can't figure out why I have this problem all of a sudden. Going to try another test flight now from KOXC to KBDL. Landing ILS Runway 33 108.55 Coarse 328. Lets see what happens.
  24. Yes I have the WT G-3000, and don'tthink I'm having a problem with that.
