  1. Hi, how do I assign a camera definition found in an aircraft's aircraft.cfg file to a joystick button in P3Dv4? Thank you. For example: pressing joystick button 1 (the trigger button) will bring up this view. CameraDefinition.0] Title = "Right Wing" Guid = {cda65811-9e4b-4492-a466-c7148f0aaac3} Description = View from the right wing tip looking at the cockpit Origin = Center SnapPbhAdjust = Swivel SnapPbhReturn = FALSE PanPbhAdjust = Swivel PanPbhReturn = FALSE Track = None ShowAxis = FALSE AllowZoom = TRUE InitialZoom = 1.0 ShowWeather = Yes InitialXyz = 10.0, 1.0, 0 InitialPbh = 5, 0, 270 XyzAdjust = TRUE Category=Aircraft ClipMode=Minimum
  2. Everything in aviation especially when communicating with ATC or other pilots, is based on 'MSL' with regards to altitude --and to KIAS with regards to speed?The radar altimeter, if one exists in the plane, is never used in communicating with others. And, communication is always in English and in the Imperial System (ie. not metric). So if I went to Russia or China, ATC will communicate with me in English and use Imperial units?
  3. Oh, before I forget.... everything in aviation especially when communicating with ATC or other pilots, is based on 'MSL' with regards to altitude --and to KIAS with regards to speed, right? The radar altimeter, if one exists in the plane, is never used in communicating with others. And, communication is always in English and in the Imperial System (ie. not metric). So if I went to Russia or China, ATC will communicate with me in English and use Imperial units, right?
  4. That helps. I guess that where flight experience in a specific plane comes in. Just for kicks, I was trying to land on L06 which has few if any visual cues and is 200 feet below sea level. Thanks.
  5. So in the above question I flare at 25 feet?
  6. I'm taking the lessons in the flight sim tutorial. And I was referring to emergency landings where there is no info. Is there like a rule of thumb that pilots use to land in an emergency on 'uncharted' or small private airports with no elevation info? Going back to an earlier question: on landing, the tutorial say that we should flare the plane about 15 feet before the wheels touch down. On a regular altimeter, if during take-off the barometer is 30.03 or 10 feet in the runaway, then when I land on the same runaway later, should I flare when the altimeter is at 25 feet ?
  7. How would a real pilot land (crash land) on a piece of land with no elevation info in a plane that does not have a 'radar altimeter' (I take it most planes do not have 'radar altimeters'). For example, on the airport L06, which is below sea level, and the pilot doesn't know that it is below sea level?
  8. I've been reading up on the tutorial lessons. On landing, the tutorial say that we should flare the plane about 15 feet before the wheels touch down. On a regular altimeter, if during take-off the barometer is 30.03 or 10 feet in the runaway, then when I land on the same runaway later, should I flare when the altimeter is at 25 feet ?
  9. I should have checked here before buying the item because it was on sale. That being the case, the sale wasn't cheap. Thank you both.
  10. Prior to take-off should I adjust the altimeter so that it is always set to 0? Or, should I adjust it according to the barometer readings, but if I do, how do I remember the actual altitude during landing? Thank you.
  11. I bought the Carenado Phenom 100 which has a Navigraph expansion pack. What is an expansion pack? Doesn't the plane come with a Navigraph database already? Since it's on sale I'm wondering if I should buy the expansion pack. Thank you.
  12. Each time I logout of FSX I get this error message and it keeps coming back even after pressing Run Now. I have Windows 10 Creator's Update (the first one) running FSX with Acceleration, and I am logged in as the administrator. https://1drv.ms/i/s!AiZXGlIfeoh8isBw0_60l_-2UdqTgQ
  13. This is a new FSX install and Windows 10. I have Win 10 Creator's Update running FSX with Acceleration, several plane addons, and that's it. Everytime I exit FSX I get this notification. I've right clicked on the Properties of the FSX Shortcut and adjusted the compatibility mode (I tried Win 7 and Vista) but I still get this notification after I exit FSX everytime. Any idea how to get rid of this notification? Thanks.
  14. Obviously a newbie question: Using XP11 and the Logitech wireless gamepad which works great in FSX, I am unable to control the default Cessna. On taxi, it wants to go left even though I've set right trim using ']'. On flight, the aircraft yo-yo's and rolls continuously, even after applying the pitch and roll trim controls (1,2,8,9,0). I also set the keys for auto-wing level and altitude hold to no effect. Finally, is there a way to display the auto-pilot status on screen and a method to slew in chase mode (please don't mention map mode - I know.). I never had this problem in FSX. Please advice. Thank you. P.S. A first impression: I like the way XP renders the roads. Much better than FSX.
