  1. When I press "b" to set the altimeter at cruising altitude (which I have to do frequently because it keeps getting off), the autopilot does not correct my altitude even if I'm 1000 feet off. The only way to get it to climb or descend is to turn VNAV off and then turn it back on again. Now, if I turn off VNAV for the cruise phase and turn on ALT hold instead, everything works perfectly, but aren't you supposed to leave it on VNAV? I'm used to flying the 757 and 767 (Captain Sim), where VNAV worked much like ALT hold at cruising altitude. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, but what is it?Thanks,boeing247
  2. Hi, It started today afer an PMDG center update. When I select the vehicle, any B737NGX, after all systems initiate the plane sinks to the ground and P3D V4 resets to default flight. I tried other vehicles in the P3D V4 selection and this does not happen. I suspect the altimeter because I get a message that says my altimeter is set incorrectly, but my attempts to reset the altimeter failed. Thanks for any help Carlos Alvarez
  3. Thanks for adding me to the group ! started building some instruments for cockpit builders, what do you guys think about it ? It is the first prototype and the finish is a bit rough. Also waiting on some new equipement to achieve real backlighting. altimeter 1 altimeter 2
  4. Hello all fellow 441 flyers. Anyone else have an issue where your altimeter suddenly jumps up when passing FL190/FL200? Around that range mine jumps a good 2 to 3 thousand feet. GPS altitude doesn't change, only pressure. I have to descend back down to FL170 before it will read correctly again. Only does it in this aircraft.
  5. Hi guys, Sorry for double posting this, I hooked on to a previous topic that talked about the rotary and slow/fast controls of the baro minimums and altimeter knobs, but I think my question will remain a bit snowed under since it was a topic from back in February. So here goes again: P3Dv4, latest updates to the 747 have been applied. I wanted to set the controls of the altimiter and the minimums selector to rotary yesterday, because the slow/fast control just takes too much fiddling for my taste. But when I attempted to change it in the FMC the two items on the corresponding page (20/22) seemed to be frozen for some reason. I couldn't get them to change over. I tried all the other pages in the settings and found that all settings were editable. I'm not sure what is up here, but I thought I would mention it, as it seems something that should be looked at. In the meantime I have gone into the .cfg file and manually changed the setting from =0 to =1 and now it is fine in the simulator, but of course this is not the preferred method. Anyone else seeing this issue? If so, I guess I should open a ticket so the information passes by the devs.
  6. Hi, Quick question that's been bugging me. How come the pilot2atc app never gives me altimeter information? When i file a flight plan, and request clearance, taxi, takeoff i never get the altimeter setting. Also, if during in flight, I use PTT and do a Say Altimeter, it tells me altimeter information is not available. In case this matters, i have the pilot2atc provides atis information checkbox unchecked. Not sure if that matters though as it gives me pretty much everything else i need in the clearance. Thanks, Joe
  7. This addon inserts two new weather themes in Microsoft Flight: Light Snow It has been snowing all day, but flying should be safe as long as you stay out of the clouds. Heavy Snow A heavy snowstorm makes flying at low altitudes a real challenge. Don't forget to set your altimeter to 28.99 inHg.
