  1. I would take that to the problems with heading that I see. Still haven't gotten this one figured out. Matt
  2. I agree that going back in and resetting the settings for the aircraft is a bit of a pain. I don't know of a way to have it save that information, unfortunately. Hopefully that will be implemented.. Matt
  3. I don't know if anyone else is having this issue, but my heading indicator constantly drifts to the point I can pause the plane and watch it move. This has to be be more than simple gyro drift. In fact, I tried turning on the gyro drift auto calibration to see if that changed anything, but it made no difference. At first I thought it might have to do with the controls. I am running with a Honeycomb Alpha yoke, a Thrustmaster throttle and rudder peddles. I also have a Thrustmaster G1000 stick as well as TrackIR. Today I unplugged ALL of the controls and ran with only a keyboard and mouse (I even had TrackIR shut down). After verifying in the control settings that it only detected the keyboard and mouse, I loaded up a saved flight 3,000 feet up in a Cessna 152. Lo and behold, the course heading was still visibly moving all on its own, even while I had the simulation in pause mode. I hit the D key to reset the heading and it jumped back to correct and then started visibly wandering off all on its own again. I have been thoroughly enjoying the sim, but it is to the point where I can't trust my heading indicator at all. I have had it lead me astray doing something as simple as a single circuit. Has anyone else come across this issue? Are there any known corrections or workarounds? I am finding it quite frustrating. Thanks! Matt
  4. Personally, I think the best way to impress them is to fly them in an area that they (and ideally you), know well. They will be impressed that the schools, stores, houses, etc. that they know are there. It has a more personal impact that way. Matt

  6. I have a G13 kicking around that my wife got me for Christmas years ago. I am definitely going to break it out and give it a try! Matt
  7. Actually, some of Rod's ground school material in FSX makes for good reference material. Matt
  8. Thank you. I definitely plan on checking out MSFS. Matt
  9. Thank you for sharing. I was also looking at putting together a trip around the world for myself and found this to be very informative and helpful. Matt
  10. Hello. I am returning to flight simming after taking the better part of 14 years off (occasionally dabbling). My flight simming partner was my father who got me into the hobby in the 80's. Unfortunately, he passed in February just short of his 88th birthday. From everything I have seen he would have liked where the hobby is headed. I wish that I could share the new MSFS with him as he would have absolutely loved it. I will be flying in his memory on the 18th. Matt
