    Installing NGX on P3D V4.3

    Thank you Dan !

    Installing NGX on P3D V4.3

    I am going to dismiss P3D V3.4 and to install P3D 4.3 I have a step by step guide to uninstall P3D 3.4 Then I will unistall also AS16 and other add ons. But I am not sure about what to do with PMDG NGX. Ideally I would like to uninstall it and then, reinstalling it with a clean installation in the new P3D 4.3 Am I right? Thank you for your help.

    Entering the hold issue

    I am testing now...both the tear drop and the parallel entry. but now I have another question to ask. Suppose there is already another plane in HOLD. If my entry is parallel, I will have a leg in the opposite direction to the direction of rotation of the hold. In order not to collide with the other plane I will imagine both a vertical separation and an entry order in hold by the ATC. or not? Or does the vertical separation suffice and can the entry also be parallel?

    Entering the hold issue

    OOOhhhh...thank you all folks for the answer...I knew I would have found it immediately here. I will test it immediately....!!!!!

    Entering the hold issue

    you are right...but I did not take a screenshot...I will test do and post it. Anyway I am quite sure I have set the hold pattern correctly (inbound leg, R/L turn, altitude, ...) but as soon as I have reached the waypoint simply the NGX turned into the opposite way. Same thing happened yesterday to a VA friend during the same flight, same hold. it was SAMOS ...we were arriving from south and had to hold over the SAM VOR. Once over SAM instead of a right run...the aircraft turned left (opposite of the FMC setting that said to hold R) http:// (I hope I did not violate any forum rule by posting this partial image. If I did I apologize)

    Entering the hold issue

    This is the second time I have this issue: I have the Hold page correctly set for the hold, I execute it and now is active. When I reach the entry point ...instead of a right turn (as programmed) the NGX turns left. It happened either having the entering path perfectly aligned with the inbound leg....either having it with a steep angle. What am I doing wrong? Thank you

    wind speed and direction in cruise

    Thank you Dan

    wind speed and direction in cruise

    on the display it is possible to see the wind direction/speed. I know that it is a complicated an indirect calculation base on the informations derived by the meausing of the dynamic/static pressure/heading compared with the GPS measurements (to calculate groundspeed). The vectors analysys allows to know the wind direction/speed. Now the question: - What I see in the display is sometimes different (small difference) with the wind direction/speed readable on the FMC cruise page. Why? Is it a PMDG behaviour or does it happens also in in the real NGX?...is it due to a different source for the calculations? Thank you.
  9. The NGX tends to be "slippy" during the descend and it is difficult to slow down. Yesterday I was descending to LEIB during a thunderstorm and the KIAS started to go up and down of 20+ knots. Also trying to slow down the descent below 1000 fps with the speedbrakes up I was unable to slowdown and the green arrow sometimes took me in the overspeed zone. Any idea or trick of how o handle the descend in such a situation, assuming that the PMDG is correctly simulating this high speed variation? How do you do in rw?

    Strange SID path in my B738 FMC

    Interesting consideration. Let us know their answer. thank you in advance.
  11. I want to publicly thank Fs2crew: one month ago I bought an Fs2crew product forgetting to request a discount granted to the members of my VA Flyuk. It was my fault, obviously. Today I have realized it and wrote an email to ask a credit for future purchases. After only few hours I got a short and clear answer: they have recognized the credit. It could sound normal to many people and, eventually it is. But in the jungle of all the possible answers and excuses, I have really appreciated this simple and fast YES. So...I want all simmers to know about the commercial correctness demonstrated by F2crew. my regards Stefano

    Strange SID path in my B738 FMC

    That's means that in the real world such a thing never happens..right?! by the way, my acceleration altitude setting, vspeeds, trim, winds, ...were already set as usual. I have tried also to change the initial climb setting...but I always got the picture shown. It is like the FMC was calculating "its" way to pass at 700ft and above 1700ft to respect the altitude restrictions within the SID: in this case the runway is quite long and I took off pretty soon and I was able to manually flying passing at the two restrictions without problems...but if the FMC calculates the distance between the rwy and the first wpt from the end of the rwy, in that case, to be at 700ft would have required a steep angle and, for this reason, the FMC has calculated the 360 turn. is this a possible reason?

    Strange SID path in my B738 FMC

    Taking off from EBBR 25R SID DENUT 6C the route requires a 3.8% up to 700, then 7.0% up to 3200 to minimize noise disturbance. There are two altitude restrictions: at 700 and above 1700 following the sid to DENUT The chart reports a simple take off at 245° then a right turn 297°. Nothing strange, it seems, from an LNAV and VNAV perspective. If it is so, why does my FMC show a 360° turn left (it seems to gain altitude to pass at 700 (first altitude restriction) and a second 360 turn to cross the second altitude restriction above 1700? I avoided to follow the FMC and flew the SID manually following the SID path on the charts and had no problems. Is it a real FMC behaviour or a PMDG bug? I know it has been discussed at least once, but I finally did not understand the reason. Thank you Stefano

    OVERWINGS DOORS

    What to say.... I have more than understood! Thank you Alan for your complete answer.

    OVERWINGS DOORS

    I am at the gate. Sometimes I see the OVERWING DOORS light up (but they are closed). It is an alert for a non perfectly not closed door....I try to reopen and close...but the lights are still on. The QRH says: if pressurization is normal--> continue if press is not not normal --> plan to land Obviously it refers to an inflight situation. But what to do when I am at the gate?...in rw I suppose you have to call maintenance to check it (btw I took off monitoring the light and it switched off after about a couple of minutes) What to do in these cases (as I imagine that taking off it is not the correct procedure !) Thank you!
