    Falcon 50 landing/taxi lights

    I've resorted to using FSLabs' Spotlights to create a good landing light for the addons where I struggle seeing anything. While it is inconvenient, since i can't hotkey it, it's way better than most addon versions. That said, I'd love to see some other light options for the Falcon50 (and the Lear35). Right now, I can't even see the line in front of me, and many airports I fly to do not have green lights on the taxiways at the general aviation parks. I'm well aware that this might be directly related to the shaders I use, but even so, I don't see the same kind of issues with the bigger aircraft, nor with for instance the A2A Bonanza.

    Saved cold and dark?

    I am pretty sure that the aircraft (like many other addon aircrafts without saved states) load based on the default flight. So if you load that one up (in P3D v4 it's the Raptor on the default airfield), shut that down to C&D, that's what you will get in the F50. The only issue I have with it loading running is that it starts rolling on load, which is a bit annoying. Nothing that can't be solved with the parking brakes though.

    Falcon 50 GPU

    Hello! I picked up this beautiful bird today, and I'm struggling with the Ground Power Unit. I seem to be missing something when it comes to its operation, and I just can not get it to stay checked in the aircraft options page. In the video below, you can see how I make sure parking brake is set, battery 1 and 2 is on, and when pressing the GPU unit, it just blinks and disables itself. I am not sure if there is something I am missing - an aircraft on parking brake with or without chocks on, should be able to have the GPU connected no? Here is the video: http://i.tivec.org/2019-01-09_16-38-25.mp4 Any help is appreciated!

    Falcon 50 GPU

    Glad to hear! Any idea when this fix will be pushed to SimMarket? I can see that the change is on the website, but SimMarket is still showing 1.4.

    Did you watch the clip? (yes,they were off)
  6. I am having the weirdest of problems with vPilot (and also EuroScope when observing). The sound/comms randomly stops working until press the transmit button. It is as if vPilot loses connection with the network but is then resolved immediately when I press send. This happens in vPilot and also in EuroScope, but no other software. I have wondered if this is related to my sound setup (using VoiceMeeter with virtual sound devices), but then I believe I should have noticed this with other software as well - especially communications software. This is driving me insane, and it has caused trouble for me on numerous occasions (not following ATC commands, because, surprise, I can't hear them). This is especially noticeable in airspace that has low traffic, since the delay between comms may be longer, and it's impossible for me to tell if there has been a transmission or if it is just quiet... Any help is appreciated. vPilot is run as administrator, and so is P3D.
  7. Hello, Since I use PFPX exclusively for flight planning (not takeoff and landing calculations, mind, really looking forward to the EFB for that), is there anyone that - during the beta, or in preparation for release - has made a profile for the aircraft and its variants? Excited to hear about the imminent release of the -8, it has been a long wait.

    PFPX profile for the 747-8

    I downloaded that particular profile, and ran two identical flight plans (TJSJ-ENGM, as a test flight. roughly 08:20 flight time). One through Simbrief, which gave me a block fuel of 109 045kg, and the profile from the group gave me a block fuel of 121 534kg. I believe the profile might work in the end, but the fuel difference is quite large. I'll run a few tests and try to find the closest values once the aircraft is out and ready to rumble.

    PFPX profile for the 747-8

    Does the Simbrief profile also work on the cargo variant of the aircraft? I fly the heavies exclusively as cargo, so passenger models are irrelevant to me.

    PFPX profile for the 747-8

    Yeah, not likely.

    PFPX profile for the 747-8

    Well, that's sad to hear. My question then falls to Simbrief - how they got a hold of the data required to build their profile. But for that I'll contact Simbrief. Thanks for taking your time to answer.

    PFPX profile for the 747-8

    Alright. Will said data be available after release so someone can create a profile?
  13. I bought the AS365 for P3Dv4.1 yesterday, and whenever I power it on (be it from cold and dark, or choose the ready to fly option) I get a constant beeping sound. See this video clip: http://i.tivec.org/2018-01-25_20-36-36.mp4 From what I understand it is the "low rpm" warning, but I can't figure out what I need to do to increase the RPM if that's the case.. I had a more experienced helicopter pilot (I am very much a novice), try and he mentioned that he had the same and couldn't sort out the error. Now I'm hoping that someone here has the same issue and know how to resolve it :)
  14. I'm on Prepared V4.2, and I have not had this issue with other Carenado aircraft. I'm going to give the fuel selector a try next time I fire up the simulator, see if cycling it fixes the issue.
  15. Hey, got to say I really like the way the systems behave with this mod. However, I'm struggling something fierce to get the engines started. I'm following the standard procedures (throttle a little forward, mixture primed 6 seconds then cutoff, props full forward, magnetos on, starter on, advance mixture), but it just spins and stops again. Fuel in the tanks, fuel selector on inboard tank, and the fuel valves are open. What on earth am I missing to start the aircraft? I always end up using the ready for taxi preset in the end... Need help from some professionals on this :)
  16. One of the first attempts I've made, and it didn't solve it unfortunately. I'm waiting for Cerasim to update to include the 4.2 changes, and I will try again then.
  17. I'm struggling with incoherent feedback between button settings and the annunciator. For instance this, where setting bleed on shows it as being off.. For the left engine, setting bleed air produces no reaction on the annunciators at all.

    Learjet 35A & PFPX

    The last sendfile link worked, so I have temporarily uploaded this to Dropbox for people to download. I am not the author, so I do not want to upload it to the PFPX forum without @DayWalker's approval. https://www.dropbox.com/s/j5w1ae0tpo7ba3m/LearJet 35A.txt?dl=0 Until I hear from DayWalker, download it from the above link.

    Autopilot going wild

    I was on a flight from ENBR to ENAL in the PC12, and was performing a pretty steep descent (2800fpm) at low torque. I'm using the F1 GTN 750 as my nav unit, and I had the autopilot set to NAV, and it was following the path quite perfectly, until all of a sudden it decided to bank sharply to the left, the FD showing a bank angle way past 30 degrees, and the autopilot happily obliged. Before I could react to this, the FD moved to show an equal bank over to the other side, causing the AP to turn happily that way. After this, I couldn't get the autopilot to follow along in any way, even in heading mode the FD would oscillate left and right wildly. I switched off the autopilot and proceeded to land safely on manual controls. I'm curious as to what could be causing this - this makes the aircraft very unpredictable to fly on autopilot.

    Autopilot going wild

    I have, and it is working a lot better since I did. Haven't had the weird oscillation either, but I haven't got a lot of hours yet :)
  21. It would be great to use a camera software without having to connect to servers. Just saying.
  22. Thank you so much for pointing me in the right direction on this. It's been driving me mad that LNM hasn't had any STAR/SIDs, especially since I've seen screenshots and other people using the feature. Then I reordered my SceneryLibrary to make sure I have the FSAD approaches on top of the library, and everything is great now :) (When the SID you choose is as long as the route you will fly...)
  23. Hello! I've been flying a lot with this aircraft recently, and would like to use it in PFPX, but I simply do not know enough to make the profile and performance file for this aircraft. Does anyone have one made already?
