  1. I would like to motorize my homemade Throttle-quadrant. In order to find out when the A/T should be disconnected from the thrustlevers I want to make use of the states of the FMA (Flight Mode Annunciator) as shown in tle most-left box of the PFD/ND. To my understanding, the A/T should be disconnected when the mode is eighter [ARM] or [THR HLD], or when the A/T is off. Does anyone know how to read the values [ARM] or [THR HLD] of the FMA? I use P3Dv4.5 and PMDG738NGX BR/ Niek van der Corput
  2. Hello Up until two days ago I had a stable version of v4.5, HF2 running with a GTX1060 card. Without warning I suddenly started getting a Device Hung Error when undocking the default ATC and moving it on to my secondary monitor, which has a GTX760 attached (no SLI). I installed the latest Nvidia drivers and this seems to have fixed the problem. However, now whenever I undock a window and move it on to the secondary monitor, my FPS tanks to 1FPS. Steps taken so far, include - deleting P3D.cfg, deleting shaders, revering back to the old drivers,tinkering with various Graphics settings, including VSync. I also found on another thread some NCP settings to try, all to no avail. As I say, this is not something creating extra load to halve my FPS, it is breaking something that writes them off altogether. Any suggestions please?
  3. Hi, I'm currently flying a long haul and I'm cruising. The problem I'm experiencing is with REX Sky Force and it consists of the cloud and sky textures restoring to default P3D textures while in-flight. I can temporarily fix it by forcing REX to install the textures again, but the problem persists and when I exit the ~40NM of clouds that REX loads into the sim, the textures immediatly go back to the default ones. I'm using max cloud coverage and render distance in the P3D settings. thanks in advance, Daniel
  4. Hello there, i have a question regarding the light you see in the following pictures (there are some other pictures that show the exact position (when you start at "UK10" (Plockton) if someone would like to check it out): i am using Orbx Global, Orbx OpenLC Europe and Orbx GES, when i deactivate OpenLC Europe, the lights are gone. Is this how it is suppodes to look or is something corrupted there? Would be great if someone could have a look. Thanks Sebastian
  5. Hi, So while i was trying to fix gsx issue i got problem with Prepar3D. It doesn`t recognize any aircrafts apart aerosoft and fslabs products for example i have QW 787 and it`s not showing even default aircrafts are not there🙁. Deleted and installed again the latest version of P3D and nothing happens. (Just to mention didn`t touch anything with p3d while trying to fix gsx) Here are some pics: https://imgur.com/a/fy8Bb9d
  6. DAL1350 from KATL to KCHS. Really loving the scenery from my old stomping grounds when I was based there.

  8. I think this shot was taken north of Nantes in France. Got caught in a 150kt jetstream. Not much turbulence though. (JS originated from central Texas according to SIGWX charts). (Nota bene: This is also why I prefer TRACK UP nav displays)
  9. Note to self, Next time Fly in and out of Executive....... Time for home, Starting to look busy..... Oh great! Let the waiting begin.... Finally!!! Climb out from KLAS PSP below! Almost Home! And so we come to the end of another beautiful flight in my flight sim world........ Thanks for looking! Enjoy your day all!
  10. Those that know me know my first introduction into being a professional crew member was a Flight Engineer on the C-130 in the Alaska Air National Guard. The Herk is hands down the most impressive airframe I have ever had the privilege to operate. Every once in awhile I get a bug to fly the old bird and the past few days hasn't been any different. I updated my Flight! GTN, installed Simuflys CIVA INS for all my Class 2 needs, installed my TSS Soundpack, installed the TIT gauge for more accurate cruise and climb performance, and painted a Lynden Livery just for good measure. I'll upload it to Avsim in a bit for those that might want it. Unfortunetly I'm not having much luck getting the models working properly for the L100-30. Its painted but the aircraft isn't operating correctly. Todays flight was from PANC to PASV. PASV forecast is marginal weather conditions mainly due to winds so figured it would be a good challenge. Turned out to not be much of a challenge as the herk is a masterful performer. All loaded up ready to go with a 18000# payload. Airborne out of Anchorage on the Anchorage 9 In the red square is the TIT gauge. 300-310 TAS in cruise is right where its at in this slow bird. Good thing I have my GPS handy otherwise I'd be shooting the NDB, atleast the plane has an RMI to aid in the procedure but still. Over a GPS? HA Scummy weather over the IAF but the cloud layer cleared up pretty quick and onto the winds! Few mile final you can see why Sparrevohn is a one way strip. Not only one way but you had better make your Go Around decision early enough, I doubt you are outperforming the mountainous terrain at the end of RW 34. Short final and you can see the crab I haven't kicked out yet. You can see a better view of the hill behind the runway. All done and in parking just in time for the snow to arrive. I hope you enjoyed viewing, it was a fun flight! If anyone would like flying tips on the herk or anything hit me up. Its a shame CS has let this plane kinda languish without the updates it needed, but it still a fun aircraft to fly.
  11. HI all, installed the C195 into P3D4 using the installer, and I'm currently in the process of racing around the world in it. Trouble is, the fuel flow gauge seems to be busted. Is it just me? Did they not recompile it? Edit - it's not there at all - missing from the CAB file... Cheers Mike Support Ticket #4134
  12. Team Not sure what I need (to know) ..... but I suspect it is a "user guide" to the specifics of how to use the PMDG's 777 MCE checklist feature so that it is fluent & compatible with the DU displays of said aircraft. For example, I rarely have the correct page of the checklist opened when requested although the challenges are appropriate to the requested, As rare, on completion of the requested, the DU closes to a blank screen, not the previous DU Eicas page. Where I might be struggling with is understanding the "consequences" of the options "strict" & "item status check" & how they influence what one might expect. In that, my expectations include each challenge should be closed (green) if the response is accepted by the PNF. I suppose broadly put, I expect the PNF to do all the "functions" that match what one can do with a mouse click (?), but then that means not by the PF (me) who is more than occupied otherwise / "flying". Hoping to hear more.
  13. Hello everyone, I have just received my package, but here I am having trouble understanding and operating the throttle on P3D, I explain myself in the photo below (link) when I have the ES throttle lever at zero on the simulation they are in the middle, whether its on Boeing or Airbus, I may have configured it and searched to find out the problem but I couldn't find anything, does anyone have a solution? thank you.

  14. Hey all. Wanted to see what people were using to connect P3Dv4 to their Foreflight apps. Im currently using FlightSimGPS, and it works pretty well all things considered. The only thing I think its missing is showing traffic from in the sim on Foreflight itself. I was going to try FS2FF to see if I could make it work since that one is supposed to show sim traffic also. Since you all may likely use something different, I wanted to get the collective feel of the community on this topic. TIA. Regards, Ben L
  15. Hello Just wanted to share these atmospheric captures from my departure from LOWS. Hope you like them :) Thanks for watching!
  16. Hi all, How's the daylight and nightlighting is in P3D4? In 3.4 I used PTA to brighten it up and add effects. Without PTA I'm concerned we're back to the eternal cloudy day. What do you think?
  17. Hello All I know that this is late to the party, but I'm about to upgrade my P4D4.5 machine from Windows 7 to Windows 10 using the standard upgrade from Microsoft. I've just upgraded a non-sim machine from 7 to 10 without a hiccup, so I have no issues with the upgrade per se. My question relates to any specific P3D4.5 issues / heads up that I should be aware of before or / after performing the upgrade that could potentially come back and bite me in the proverbial ? Any input much appreciated Regards
  18. Hey Folks, A few of my recent flights around various areas. Milviz DHC-3 Turbine Otter over Denmark Ant Tecnam P92 Eaglet over Pacific Northwest USA Ant Tecnam P92 Eaglet landing at WN01 Waterplanes Cushman A2A Commanche over New Zealand Hope you enjoy :-) Cheers
  19. Hello All! First of all, sorry if I have posted this in the wrong place, i'm new but I felt compelled to ask the mighty Avsim community! So I have P3Dv4, and have been flying the beautiful FSLabs a320 around. However, having used it for over 30+ flights nonstop, I kinda felt the need to switch to another aircraft. So, I have the TFDi 717, but being a European simmer it makes routes kinda difficult. I was wondering what aircraft you would all recommend next? Besides all of this, the main factor is ideally not to rebuy for FS2020 (PMDG-style) If you have any info on aircraft developers and FS2020, or any good aircraft that follow suit, please do let me know, I really don't mind if it's short or long haul, just also ideally below $100. Thanks!
  20. Hi, I've been trying to combine two functions to one switch on Saitek Switch Panel to be able to turn on and start the APU in my NGXu. This is probably my 500th attempt. What am I doing wrong? Using the latest LINDA, FSUIPC (reg) and latest 737NGXu profile. Any help would be much appreciated. function NGX_APU_on () ipc.control(PMDGBaseVar+118, PMDG_ClkL) ipc.sleep(50) NGX_APU_start() ipc.control(PMDGBaseVar+118, PMDG_ClkL) NGX_APU_show() Thanks, Glenn Asher
