  1. Have you planned out your trip? Just curious because i'm starting the same thing. Interested in hearing some of your destinations.
  2. I would image that explains it. Thanks.
  3. https://airandspace.si.edu/exhibitions/hawaii-by-air/online/post-war-travel/speed-and-comfort.cfm https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_DC-6 I hate to quote Wikipedia, but there are other examples of the DC-6 flying from the mainland to Hawaii with regular passenger service. I am interested to hear how that was done.
  4. My bad, I guess I was still in a sleep haze this morning. I guess I just have to experiment with power settings, etc a little bit more. I'm still not sure why PFPX says I won't make Hawaii from the mainland. I thought the DC-6 used to do that.
  5. The only thing that worked for me was to assign and calibrate my throttles in P3D. Even trying to calibrate only in FSUIPC was a no go. Everything else is still assigned and calibrated in FSUIPC, and all seems to be working.
  6. Would someone mind taking a look at the PFPX profiles that were provided with the v4 release? The weights look off to me. I can't seem to plan a flight from KLAX to PHNL without needing a lot more fuel than it says the DC-6 can carry, even with zero payload. Also MTOW looks low to me too. Thanks
  7. Are you using the AFE? How is that working?
  8. Such a "small" download for PMDG.... lol Finished! but I have to wait till I get home from work to install :(
  9. See my post on the previous page
  10. Yes, my bad. I see what you were saying. I get a CTD when using the right side GNS430 knob on the Twin Otter. But that is for a different forum....
  11. If it uses the default GNS430 than no editing on the fly. I import PFPX flight plans into P3D when flying a/c that use the default GPS. Works pretty good for me. Otherwise, I manually enter all my flight plans. And to answer your question: Yes, fsAerodata overwrites the default nav database with the current AIRAC cycle. I've had ZERO issues with it. Worth every penny.
  12. Since it sounds like you guys already have Navigraph, you should really check out fsAerodata. Just use it to download the current Navigraph cycle, click a few buttons, and Bob's your uncle.
  13. Just saw this over on the DC-6 side. I was starting to sweat the PFPX profile issue! Great news!!!
  14. They are very clear about the release date on the P3D products page..... lol PMDG 737-600/700 NGX Expansion Package for use with Lockheed Martin Prepar3D NOTE: Requires PMDG 737NGX Base Package for Prepar3D DOWNLOAD DELIVERY ONLY! INTERNET CONNECTION REQUIRED TO INSTALL Digitally delivered products are not refundable! Compatible with any Lockheed Martin Prepar3D v2.4-v3.x License Level. Will be Prepar3D v4 compatible sometime prior to June 22, 2059.
  15. That sounds good! Same settings that I used in v3. Nothing noticeable in FPS drop?
