  1. I have a dead instrument panel and interior lighting on the KA350i, and interior lighting problems with the 310R, PC-6 and Piper Twin Comanche as well. (B55 and DHC-2 are ok.) PFDs and MFD don’t work, weirdly show magnified portions of the instrument panel. RTU, ESIS and FMS are also inop. Switches on the instrument panel work, (I can start the engines blind) but no lights on the panel, not even press-to-test. No cabin or cockpit lights work either (exterior lights do work). With Avionics Master Power on I can hear fans/gyros but nothing visual. I’ve been flying the excellent King Air (and other MilViz GA aircraft) for months. After cloning my 1TB HDD to a 1TB SSD about a week ago all appeared to be working well but now this. I have tried multiple uninstall/reinstalls. I’m quite adept at it after keeping up with every beta this year. Uninstalled via Control Panel-Programs and Features. Deleted any remaining folders in C:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4 and C:\Users\.....\AppData. Rebooted computer between each uninstall/reinstall. Disabled anti-virus before reinstalling. Tried a previous version too with the same result. Also removed all other troubled MilViz aircraft and MVAMS as well. Other aircraft are working fine so I’m hoping to find a solution that doesn’t include completely uninstalling P3D. I have posted this in the KA350 support forum on MilViz.com but thought I’d try my luck here too. Thanks for any advice you might have.

  2. A few pics from a long flight across Africa. My Beech King Air was positioned at FBNG (Mombo Camp Airfield, Botswana) following a cargo flight from Angola, but with no cargo jobs nearby to FBNG, and wishing to get over to my newly-constructed cargo centre at HTDA (Dar-Es-Salam, Tanzania) so I could fly some more lucrative base-to-base jobs between Dar-es-Salam and FMMI (Ivato, Madagascar), this meant flying all the way across a large part of Africa with the cargo hold empty, taking in Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi and Tanzania along the way. The good point about this however, was that in flying direct, I realised I would be following the Zambezi River for quite some time, with its major dams and lakes, passing over a few good points of interest, including Livingstone, Victoria Falls and Lake Malawi, and since part of the reason for having a virtual cargo company operating in Africa, was so I could check these places out, this was pretty cool. Sadly the scenery for Victoria Falls in MSFS is not as majestic as it is in real life, but it was still fun to take it in and it is nevertheless reasonably geographically accurate and visually pleasing, as well as being one of the places which is fairly instrumental in some major incidents in history. As per the title of this thread, this is the region where Henry Morton Stanley - his expedition being funded by the New York Herald's publisher, James Gordon Bennett Jr - discovered the whereabouts of the famous missionary explorer, David Livingstone, and greeted him with the well known 'I presume?' phrase. Although he was there ostensibly to preach, Livingstone's missionary efforts were in many ways a pretext for a campaign against the slave trade, he surmised that by making an explorer's name for himself, his anti-slavery efforts would carry more weight. Although he was forced on occasion to rely on such practices for survival, his intentions were for the time very honorable for the most part, having been inspired by Livingstone's own poverty-stricken upbringing in Scotland. Perhaps more famously however, Gordon Bennett's name became the inspiration for the famous expression of surprise, after he allegedly turned up drunk to his engagement party at the family home of the socialite Caroline May, then proceeded to have a slash in the fireplace, much to the horror of all the posh people in attendance. It was as a result of this that the marriage was called off and he fled to Europe in disgrace. As you probably know however, Gordon Bennett did return to the 'States and established numerous well known races for cars, balloons and aeroplanes, some of which continue to this day...
  3. Hello, all. As suggested by the management, this is a first post to introduce myself. I'm working on a setup using X-plane 11 and Air Manager. X-plane 11 is superb but so far Air Manager seems very wiggy indeed. Because I am poor I am building all my own flight controls using Bodnar interfaces. My objectives are: first a C172 instrument trainer, then a turboprop twin designed in Plane Maker around the kind of cockpit I can actually construct. My main design concern is usually ergonomics, and I am interested in historical (pre-GPS) radio-navigation. I obtained a PPL twenty years ago but was almost immediately grounded owing to a medical problem which has since led to my retirement. As a result of this my progress with things in general is slow. In particular on some days I may not be able to face the computer at all and so may not reply in as timely a way as I should, for which apologies in advance. My hope is that somewhere out there is an Air Manager expert who will reassure me that I have not just bought a complete lemon.

  5. I've been having a lot of fun with Aerofly FS2. It's really a fun alternative when you want to just fire up and fly around without a lot of preparation time and without worrying about fussing with tweaks and such. Everything shown here is default, with no tweaks or modifications (to the sim or the images) with the exception that both planes feature a repaint which is available online, with the exception of the King Air which has a repaint that is still a work in progress but will be available once completed.
  6. Okay, the plan was to make the first sim flight of 2021 be a 'nice little earner' for my Madagascar-based Air Hauler 2 MSFS company - Indian Trader... 'So, you'll pay me nearly 25 Grand to fly 3,380 lbs of cigarettes to a small airfield about 800 miles to the north west of here so long as they arrive in less than 31 hours, that about right Chief?' 'That's right...' 'Okay then, I'm your man.' So then, that's a fully loaded Beech 350 departing from a 4,000 foot runway which is 1,150 feet above sea level and there is no fuel available at the departure or arrival airport, then flying to Selinda just south of the Zambezi, which is at an elevation of 3,100 feet and has a poxy short runway, no tower, and only a few NDBs a few miles away to help you get there, but there are a few larger airports in the region if you need to divert. Weather looks okay at the moment, potentially a bit stormy nearer the destination but nothing too bad although with the destination at over 3,000 feet above sea level, the cloud base might potentially be a problem. Off we go then. Let's use every inch of runway for this one then... Easy peasy, and the weather looks pretty good at the moment. This one is money in the bank... Hmm, it's getting a bit cloudier up north and if it gets much worse than this, I might have trouble letting down near the destination... Uh oh, now there are thunder clouds building up. Still, we should be able to thread through them... Commencing the descent, it seems it's pretty cloudy... Good job the Beech is equipped with a radar altimeter, so I decide to steer for the nearby lake and descend no lower than 500 feet AGL to see if it looks like we can make it into Selinda. I can only hope that the nearby airport with the rather rude ICAO code of FYKU isn't trying to tell me something... Over the lake we can at least now see the terrain, but the ceiling is really marginal... I decide to take a look whilst on the runway heading and see how feasible it is... Not chancing that, so I set off for a clearer area weather wise. So much for a nice easy earner, but there was no way I was going to try landing in that with no nav aids to help at all and a ceiling which was nearly all the way down to the surface. Thus it was back up into the clouds and then above them and off to somewhere nicer with hopefully either an ILS or a nice clear ceiling for a visual approach.
  7. Having managed to integrate the RXP GTN 750 into the PC-12 cockpit I decided to give the Carenado B200 another try. I had initially tried to add the RXP GTN 750 into the B200's VC, but any attempts to export from AC3D totally corrupted the cockpit interface mechanism. I've managed to find a few workarounds now, and the results so far look promising. Still work in progress, most of the actual GTN 750 integration itself is done though: I still need to figure out how to move the radar display and get rid of the original small transponder and replace it with the original small ADF. Cheers, Jerome
  8. (This is posted in multiple FlightSim forums) I searched everywhere and could not find any explanation on how to get the Saitek throttle quad to actually move the prop levers into feather detent section like l could in FSX driving the old Aeroworx B200. But I figured it out and thought I'd share. First, and unfortunately, you'll have to buy a key for FSUIPC7 from SimMarket for 25 euro to make it work. 1. Clear any buttons assigned to the Prop lever detent buttons. (full down past the detent is detected as a button press) You can keep the axis you assigned thru MSFS just clear the detent if it was assigned. 2. open FSUIPC while the King Air is parked ready to start on the tarmac. 3. Go to "Assignments" Menu tab in FSUIPC and select 'Buttons & Switches' 4. push down on the prop 1 lever to send a button press, it will pop up as Joy #B Btn #7 or something like that. 5. to the right of that, check the box 'Select for FS control' 6. below that click the dropdown menu under "Control sent when button pressed' and choose 'Prop Pitch 1 Decr' 7. Check the box below this 'Control to repeat while held' 8. then in the next dropdown menu below that 'Control sent when button released' choose 'Prop Pitch 1 Hi Ex1' This will put the lever back to bottom axis position when you release (or move back to the detent) 9. When you click 'OK' it will send this to MSFS and you can test it by watching the lever move into the Feather zone. 10. Repeat for the Prop 2 lever, selecting 'Prop Pitch 2 xxx' instead of course. That's it. This also works for Ceranado's Seneca V PA34T too. (but careful, it will stall out the engine ) Sorry, I didn't try any other aircraft or the CH quadrants. And of course I didn't try it with the Honeycomb quadrant because you bought them ALL! For the King Air 350 Throttle Beta (essentially reverse thrust) follow the same procedure as above but for the throttle detents and use 'Throttle 1 Decr' for the button press and 'Throttle 1 cut' for the release.
  9. Milviz has been very busy with the King Air 350i for quite some time. Every now and then I come across a post here at AVSIM that illustrates a complete lack of understanding just how much effort and energy is put into crafting a hardcore aircraft for FSX/P3D, one that is simulated with high accuracy, with very high fidelity, both visually and as far as system depth is concerned. The same goes for scenery, there is run-of-the-mill scenery and then there is scenery like PILOT'S Almeria Airport (LEAM), highly detailed, immensely immersive. The screenshots below are taken from a dawn departure this morning out of Almeria Airport on a test flight with the latest Milviz King Air 350i Beta.
