Hi people, I am a RW 320 pilot looking to set up FS labs A320. To that end, I have recently bought a copy of P3D V4 and I'm having a lot of trouble setting up my Saitek Pro thrust quadrant, MadCatz joystick and Saitek rudder pedals. I am looking for an idiots guide to FSUIPC5. Although there is indeed already a lot of information from Pete Dowson and others about this software it all assumes a certain amount of knowledge that I simply don't have. I have tried to register on Pete's support Forum so that I can ask this question but I never received the registration email despite the site saying that it's been sent (yes I've checked my junk mail folder) The video's that assist to some extent don't seem to be quite the same as what I'm looking at. I would appreciate your help.
First of all I would like to welcome all the new members to VATSIM! Please I'm not an official member I'm just making a guide for new members, forums moderators I don't mind if you edit the thread. Basics Please note that VATSIM is not a game even FSX, it is for training sessions or virtual flying network provided with ATC, When you connect to VATSIM you need to know basic ATC knowledge and you need to know your aircraft very well. Vatsim depends on real-life charts STARS (Standard Terminal arrival routes) SIDS (Standard Instrumental departures) Without this then you will stay on the ground no matter what, You need to file a flight plan that is LEGIT with the AIRAC cycle. What is AIRAC? AIRAC is what they use like maps but it updates depending with routes from real life our current AIRAC is 1505, this can be downloaded from Navigraph and it updates depending on your subscription. Pilots Rules apply! You must read-back all thats been said by the ATC (e.g ATC: UAE123 Cleared to Dubai via ALSEM1E Departure (SID) 36R, squawk 2423. PILOT: Cleared to Dubai using ALSEM1E departure, 36R, SQUAWK 2423. ATC: Read-back is correct call for P/S This is not a complete guide still W.I.P
