  1. Anyone else just disappointed with the fact that the clouds all look the same? I feel like they don't have the variety that I saw in ASCA HD.
  2. Like everyone else, I throw in my two cents. I'm fortunate to have a powerful rig and I haven't experienced some of the performance issues that others have mentioned. I've also been impressed with the mods that have been released to the community (WT, FlyByWire, Unrealwx to name a few). These mods alone have made the experience enjoyable for me. Lately I've found myself flying nothing but the CJ4 mod and I've had an absolute blast. While the complexity of the aircraft is certainly not comparable to that of PMDG quality aircraft, I think these devs are quickly advancing that direction, and best of all it's free! I do agree with the OP that I feel like each update we see some cool things, but they're not the advancements we should be seeing. Way too many things are breaking with each update. Admittedly, this was the most frustrating thing because we could all see it coming many, many months ago. I still to this day cannot believe they released this product as early as they did.... regardless of deadlines. I've come to the conclusion that it'll take atleast another year before I can fully enjoy the sim to its fullest. I still find myself going back to P3D.... but then I see the graphics and immediately become disappointed. It's a mixed bag for me. For now, I find myself bouncing back and forth for different things between the sims. In all seriousness though... for those who maybe feel jaded, consider the mods if you haven't already. I can't stress enough how great these folks are for the community. This is what the community needs. Some of the features that are being integrated are absolutely mind blowing!
  3. Simple question haha - where is the brightness knob located?
  4. Probably a silly question - where is the brightness knob for the G1000 in the Baron 58? Can't seem to locate it. Thanks!
  5. Great job everyone on this mod! I've been hesitant to install any mods and this is my first one and all I can say is, "wow!".
  6. If you're referring to the new NG3 being free, this is incorrect. You receive a rebate of $99 towards the price of the NG3 which is expected to be $139. See quote below: "...In other words, the NGXu for Prepar3D v4 is available right now for $99.99 USD. Buyers of the NGXu before 31DEC19 will receive a $99.99 USD rebate on their purchase of the NG3 once it is released. Randazzo further explained that the anticipated market price of the NG3 will be $139.99 USD." Cited link: https://fselite.net/news/pmdg-clarifies-ng3-pricing-and-ngxu-policy/
  7. Some feedback for this yoke. I've enjoyed using it for the past two days and I think it'll turn out to be a good product, but like anything new, there's room for improvement. 1) The first and most important thing I think needs to be improved is the customer support. There are no support forums for customers to come together and help each other through issues. When I first started using the yoke, I found that there was a "Dead zone" with most of my aircraft. After working with some other folks through discord, I was able to determine that turning down the null zone for the axis and turning up the sensitivity greatly helped. Would've been great to have forums to talk with other people about this. In addition to forums, I think the company needs to do a better job of relaying information on social media and replying to voicemails/emails. While I have my yoke, I never received any type of email, phone call, or other support. 2) The tension on the yoke has a steep learning curve when it comes to flaring the aircraft. I've found multiple times that my flares are at the incorrect time because I'm pulling too hard on the yoke towards the end of its travel distance. The next generation should have some type of tension adjuster or mechanical component that assists with this. Without a motor component, I'm finding myself getting worn out because unlike a traditional aircraft, when I adjust the trim, the pressure releases from the yoke where as on here it's constant regardless. Again, maybe a future/upgraded model will have these components. 3) The red light... it looked cool in the advertisements, but I've realized it serves absolutely no purpose. It would've been more helpful to have this light shine through the words on the switches so I could see them in the dark. As of right now, I've got this bright red light that does nothing to help me with the switches. I've found that more often than not, I just leave the red light off. These are just my three suggestions for constructive feedback. It'll take some time getting familiar with the yoke and I think for the price it meets my needs. Maybe some others will have some constructive feedback.

  9. I don’t think he’s a one man show anymore. Their post on Facebook directed people to call their office for support. That would be odd for him to be at the conference, knowing no one was at the office, yet tell everyone to call. 🤷🏼‍♂️
  10. And just to be transparent, I did find my shipment via the Fedex app; however, no email and the fedex app is only showing a label was created.
  11. I think it’s fair to give them until COB tomorrow. At that point they will have been silent for an entire business week with the exception of a single post where they commented on a post about drivers. At that point, I feel it’s acceptable to say their customer service is poor at best. While I may enjoy the product, it will leave a lot of hesitation in what’s to come if the product has issues.
  12. Pretty sure I wrote a paper for a fire officer class (And submitted!) while I was on a flight at 35,000 ft... but it’s too much for them to acknowledge the issues that have been brought up on Facebook for the past 72 hours? Sorry, I’m not gonna accept that. Companies these days are very aware of their social media presence. It doesn’t take that long to draft a quick response acknowledging issues or lack there of. At this point, they’ve had 72 hours to find 30 minutes to post. I’m not saying they don’t have a great product, busy schedule or limited budget.... but they have a business because of our money. As a consumer, I expect a level of service and no service is unacceptable. No replies via email, messenger, or phone. Unacceptable in my book.
  13. I’ll be curious to see how they recover from this one. Hopefully it’s not a post damping the community for getting upset. Honeycomb should definitely take responsibility for the confusion and frustrations. They were the ones who sold everyone on it would be ready by mid-end September. More importantly, I feel that if they misspoke and nothing has shipped, they need to re-evaluate who is commenting on things. This will be day 2 information from them.
