  1. Thanks for this; it appears to have worked well
  2. I still have the PCJr. If I only had the video cable I could hook up the original monitor and some 5 1/4s I could be off and 'flying'.
  3. Dominique, You make some excellent points. I did enjoy brief pattern work at KHYA in the MSFS / Carenado Seminole the other day and the scenery was very good. The aircraft developers you mention are excellent. However, IMHO if you have excellent aircraft in a simulator that is 'very rough around the edges' to put it nicely, it's kinda like driving a Ferrari on a rocky beach in Maine - not much fun. Oh, BTW, we're practically tied - I've had a flight sim since 1983 on a PC Jr. with 5 1/4 disks (remember those?) Charlie
  4. The RXP software is a fantastic piece of work! Does that take the support from 'warm' to 'hot'? Hehe The software allowing integration to the RealSimGear GTN 750 brings both platforms to another level. Very good points regarding XP and P3D.
  5. I have been a flight simmer for well over 25 years, starting with the original MSFS, ATP, P3D v.4, and X Plane since v. 5. I believe that MSFS has a very long way to go for a number of reasons: no integration with RXP Garmin devices, e.g. GTN 530 or GTN 750 - sure, you can go out and get the other package, but why leave RXP out in the cold? Poor controller setup - I had to spend WAY too much time trying to set up my yoke and other equipment - fortunately, there are folks out there who post videos on how to tweak the settings. The developers should have programmed the setup similar to what it is in XP11 so that the button assignment would visually trigger the appropriate key on the controller itself for a true confirmation. Of all the devices, I believe the radio is one of the most used. I can't stand using a mouse or keyboard. Fortunately once again, 3rd party developer(s) wrote a driver so that my avionics panel could easily 'tune and switch'. But I have to start two other add-ons. And I still can't use my GTN 750 touch screen (see first bullet). Lack of triple monitor support - sure it may eventually be supported - 2023? Stretching a 'windowed' version to a modest size works somewhat. I'm in no rush to embrace the MS 'game'. A2A, PMDG, Air Foil Labs and Majestic (Dash 8) have done a marvelous job of writing code for their aircraft in the other simulators. Perhaps by 2024 MS and Asobo will reach the other major sims in their current iteration.
  6. I too have the Real Sim Gear GTN 750 and the AP - so far I believe all modes seem to work great in the 34; IMO an under rated aircraft (P3D) I highly recommend the arezone sound package Has anyone tried to increase the instrument lighting - during the daytime, many of the instruments are hard to read
  7. Frank Thanks for the info; I am aware that GPS is based on coordinates and not radio beacons. The airport in question CQX only has an ADF beacon, and as I understand it, they were required to hold a public info meeting to add GPS (although there is an RNAV for runway 24) which would necessitate the removal of a number of trees and require easements from some homeowners around the airport. Of course, the public thought that instead the runway was going to be lengthened (not), etc. etc. thereby permitting larger/more aircraft into this small airport. Here is a recent article for your perusal from a local newspaper https://capecodchronicle.com/en/5439/chatham/4980/Airport-Meeting-Moved-Amid-Controversy-Over-Master-Plan.htm
  8. thanks for the info; yes, I know ADFs are old and outdated. I do have an AP3000 that I do use to quickly tune an ADF if needed. The particular airport I use a number of times, only has an ADF transmitter which is also why the FAA is asking the real airport to upgrade to GPS.
  9. Hello Is it possible to add/modify the GTN 750 for an ADF radio similar to Nav?
  10. Update: I basically 'threw the book' at P3D by running the various 'simconnect' installers in the 'redist' folder and then noticed the Elite 'menu' item appeared but no USB driver. Did that last item by re-installing the USB driver, tested a restart and now I can input frequencies manually from the AP 3000 unit instead of having to use the mouse - everything seems fine. As an aside, LM really needs to re-write the entire P3D package and essentially place all working folders including add-ons in one root folder much like some other sims. Why there are nearly half a dozen folders with various configs 'all over the place' is rather IMHO ridiculous. Mind you, when the sim is running it is quite to very good, but introducing updates and other new 'add-ons' can quickly get you in some quicksand.

  11. Having much difficulty getting the Elite 64 software to appear in the 'Add-On' menu in P3D v.4.4 (had the Elite AP 3000 avionics panel working once). Installed recent FSUIPC module and Elite driver a number of times with no success. Suspect a startup conflict somewhere. If there's a way to attach some *.cfg *.txt files please let me know Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance My system: i5 6600 Skylake; Asus Z170 MB, EVGA FE 1070 8GB; 32GB Corsair DDR4; Samsung SSD 1GB NVMe; Intel 500 GB; 3x Hitachi 2TB HDD
  12. Thanks for the info. LINDA is a great tool - thanks for developing it! I too have the PRO version. I've found that XP11 and many of the aircraft work most of the controls on the AP 3000 utilizing the BAJU software interface.
  13. Hi, New to LINDA, and the docs are great. I'm using the latest versions of Linda and FSUIPC. I can program a button to toggle NAV1 Ident, as seen on my "Elite AP 3000 Avionics Panel" but can't change/toggle LSK2 on the ARCDU to make NAV1 Freq. active, for example. As stated, not user friendly to mouse click LSK2. I have no idea on the code to execute in the Majestic module; also tried many other combos from the existing Q400 template as well as the FSX area. Any ideas on how to program this or is this a 'Majestic' hard code issue? With the above said, the Majestic and the TDFi are the only reasons I fly P3D Charlie
