  1. This post and many of the replies are extremely satisfying to see for someone like me who has high hopes of getting a PPL in the near future. I've dabbled in flight sims since I was a kid thanks to my father who has used them as long as I can remember. When MSFS released I just dove head first into it and have learned such an incredible amount (I think) over the last year or so. I told myself once COVID slowed and the weather got nice, I'd go for my introductory flight...and here we are. I plan on doing that in the next month or so. I think I'll probably be on the older side of the age people usually get their PPL. I'm 34, but whatever...I can't wait. The best part is I've also put the itch back into my father to get current...he has his instrument rating, but he hasn't flown in almost 15 years. He's been back flying P3D on his Redbird for a couple months now too. I'm so excited to do this with him.
  2. My xbox controller profile always resets itself and I have no idea why. I use it to control the drone only, so I unbind everything other than the controls for that....but for some reason the profile always resets itself to the default when shutting down and reopening the sim.
  3. Great. I must have missed it in the patch notes somehow.
  4. Can anyone confirm whether the throttle reduction bug when pausing with the ESC button, has been fixed?
  5. A couple quick questions hopefully someone can provide some information on 1. Is it possible to bind the Strobes and Landing lights? Cant seem to get them working with my alpha. I'm thinking it may be due to the 3 position switches of these particular switches? 2. Is it possible to feather the prop using the detents on the Bravo? I can feather them to -15% using the mouse, but can get them to feather with the prop levers on the throttle quadrant. Thanks
  6. I'm just trying to understand the current state of OBS in the sim. I know it's been implemented on the G1000 / 3000 and also the excellent GNS530 and GTN750 mods. But from what I understand about OBS...it doesn't seem to be FULLY implemented. For instance...the Garmin still sequences to next waypoint in the flight plan when OBS is activated. Also, the Garmin does not keep selected OBS course when switching back to gps mode. Now I've never actually used any of the Garmin units or OBS in real life...so my understanding of the functionality could be incorrect. Anyone with experience care to clarify?
  7. I could be very wrong as I’ve only flown it just twice now since buying it yesterday... but I don’t believe there is an altitude set with the AP.
  8. Does the Yaw Damper switch just not do anything in this aircraft? Also, has anyone using the Alpha been able to successfully bind the Strobes and Landing lights? Cant seem to get them working.
  9. Oh thanks for the tip...didn't realize there was a dedicated forum!
  10. New user of P2A here....really enjoying it so far after taking a couple nights to set it up properly and familiarize myself. One thing I'm confused on however...why does ATC gives me expected runways when inbound to a non towered field? 20 miles out or so, I'll randomly get told to "expect runway 21". After that, everything works as I would expect...I'll typically about 10 miles out or so be told "airport at your 9 o'clock, radar services terminated, frequency change to advisory approved." Perfect. It's not a big deal...I can obviously just ignore the instruction, but is there something I'm missing to have this not take place?

  12. Way off in the Boston area as well. Currently few clouds at 6,000 and overcast at 25,000 outside my window. In the sim its pouring absolute buckets.
  13. So does the new Nav/Gps switch make the CDI button on the gns530 / gtn 750 useless?
  14. Got it. Thanks for the clarification.
  15. I was unaware the JF Arrow's autopilot was able to capture and follow a glideslope. I was under the impression there was no vertical guidance capabilities on it, other than ALT HOLD.
