  1. Hey Team, First, I want to say that this is my first Leonardo product, and it's truly magnificent. Well made, indeed! I do have a question for you all; why will my engines/electrical system cut out suddenly? The engine (which, I believe triggers the electrical cut out) will occur after engine start up, and/or immediately after take off. My initial flight was a success (with no eng/elec issues), but for every flight since, i've had my Eng shut down randomly either after push and start, or take off. Knowing that i've completed one flight successfully makes me think it's user error. What system/procedure could i be ignoring that allows this shutdown to happen? I'm following the checklists to a T (I hope), and the only thing I can point to is to FS2CREW and some of the commands I give them. I think it has to do with the APU gen or something. Any insight would be appreciated!

    GE90-115B spool-up response

    In PMDG 777, it takes about 9 seconds from idle thrust to 55% N1 thrust (then push TOGA button) and seems to be slower spool-up response. In reality, I feel it takes about 7 seconds from idle thrust to 55% N1 thrust. Please give me your comment about true engine spool-up response. Thank you. Tetsuji Konohira

    PMDG Engine Sounds

    Hi all. I am wondering if anyone knows of a way to tweak the engine sounds of the PMDG 737. In particular, in real life 737's, at idle when throttling down, I notice the rumble of the engine, and the full power grind when at full power. These both sound different than they do in the simulator, and I was wondering if I could try to tweak them. I have Audacity on my laptop, and I'm wondering if you can use that (and if so, how?) to modify the sounds. Or even if someone knows of a sound pack that has what I'm looking for. Hopefully someone can help me out! Thanks, Ethan
  4. Hi. Just for (virtual) practice in Realair Duke. Scenery is the Aerosoft Demo for Catalina-Avalon Keep in mind, I'm not a real pilot. I hope you have fun. 720p available

    PMDG 737NGX engine problems

    I reacently baught the PMDG 737ngx and have mostly got to grips with it. I have encountered a problem where only 1 engine will start after being cold and dark, and in the panel save 'deafault' only one engine will give me power. :( Ive tried cheacking the bleed air was on, the fuel pumps were on and if the APU was running but still no luck. I hope somobody can help.
  6. I am trying to challenge myself in this... I've already watched a few videos on doing this, but, when on the overhead panel, trying to turn on ground power, the button is just blank with no sign on it... Just plain blank... Here's the steps... I turned on battery, then, put standby pwr to auto... And then turned on all of the bus ties and the gen cont... I then tried to turn the knob under the sign saying sys fault to aux, but the sign didn't go away... I ignored it, but then, I eventually figured out I had to turn on ground power... There is no white mark appearing on the switch... It's totally unavailable... I do have parking brakes on, but found it not helpful... Please help... Anybody!!! Thanks
  7. Hi There, i have a problem that is struggling me, and i've checked almost everything on the net before begging you. PMDG 737 fully patched (800) Engile start issue. P3D 4.2 (same issue with 4.0 and 4.1) Situation: APU RUNNING FUEL PUMPS ALL ON L&R PACKS OFF ISOLATION VALVE OPEN (but tried also with AUTO) ENG 1&2 BLEED OFF APU BLEED ON (at 10 psu) Issue: Starting LEFT engine (starting RIGHT same result) -> Selector to GRD APU pressure goes to 40 PSU N2 start rising, Fuel flow start rising Oil pressure start rising AT 25% N2 (tried also at 20%, same result) i'm opening fuel valve N2 continues running up, N1 start rising, EGT start rising, FF initially goes to 0.6 then lowering to 0,3 OIL TEMPERATURE WON'T RISE -> N1 STOP RISING at 20% Everything seems NORMAL except OIL TEMPERATURE that stays at external temperature and ENGINE that won't spool up when applying thrust power. It seems running normally but... not running at all... I started also a normal default aircraft before starting PMDG. Same result Fix I'm removing fuel from badly started engine and then reapply GRD, engine spool up again and at 25 N2 (tried at 20 too) i provide fuel. Same result... Same result occurs if i start running the other engine... at 2nd or 3rd attempt temperature start rising normally (oil temperature) and engine goes UP with N1 to normal levels. PMDG is fully patched... i didn't found anything on internet for that issue that is struggling me... Any suggestion?
  8. When I load the PMDG 737-800 NGX, the fan blades and spinners in the engine intakes are missing, the beacons appear as steady burn lights rather than flashing lights, and the landing lights have different combinations of being on or extended (often different between the left and right sides) in disagreement with the landing light switches. I've tried reloading the aircraft many times, restarting FSX many times, restarting the computer, reinstalling the liveries, and even repairing the entire 737 8/900 installation. The problem persists. I've had the for a few months and did not experience these problems until a couple days ago. I've considered reinstalling FSX, but frankly, I'd rather not if there's a better way of fixing this. Thank you for your time. -Nathan Theriault

    Should I buy PMDG 777?

    A year ago, I think i made a bad flightsim decision.. I was trying to save on money and bought CS 777 instead of PMDG 777.. the night lighting is bad, flight dynamics, engine/APU start sequence inaccurate, etc.. I was euphoric at the money I saved but I'm finding out all the little flaws of the CS 777 over time that are now shadowing whatever monetary benefit I gained.. I'm seriously considering retiring my CS 777 in the Mojave desert and thinking about buying PMDG 777. Wanted to hear from the community if this is a good decision. If I'm going to buy it, any idea when the best deals are out there? Should I wait for black friday/thanksgiving sale etc? Does PMDG typically offer big discounts during holiday sales? I see that Aerosoft is selling PMDG base 777 at 67 Euro which is about 15-20 $ cheaper than the PMDG website.. I'm all ears for suggestions and advise... Cheers. Vinod Kumar.

    Single Engine Fuel Jettison

    Hello, First of all, yes, I used the search function on this forum, and yes, I searched through both FCOM's, the FCTM and the QRH. That said, I still don't have an answer for the following situation: Tonight, I was testing the 777 (using the freighter version). I was all set up for a long flight at high load, but ran into a (programmed...) severe engine failure shortly after liftoff. My first priority was to keep flying the aircraft. No particular problem, despite the alarms and sudden loss of thrust on the left side. Once I got everything under control, I went through the appropriate checklist on the ECL. So far, so good. Now, my plan was to land back at my departure airport, but to do so, I had to jettison about 80000kgs of fuel. I entered a hold over the sea to do just that. The problem I ran into here, is that with only one engine operating, dumping fuel caused a quickly escalating fuel imbalance, and no matter what I tried, I couldn't get it to stabilize. By the time the center tank was empty, the imbalance had reached about 3500kg. Roughly what could be expected without cross feeding. I kept the fuel jettison going for a while to see whether the auto jettison function would turn off the right jettison pump when the right main tank (the less full one) reached jettison goal/2 (which it didn't). No idea whether it should stop here though, it was just an idea I had while flying so I tested it. a couple of notes: 1) fuel jettison with 2 engines running seemed to be working perfectly fine in a previous test flight. 2) cross feed also worked perfectly when fuel wasn't being jettisoned. As it was, I manually stopped the fuel jettison a bit early, and then kept flying in the hold while cross feeding to reduce the imbalance a bit, before landing. Anyway, what I'm looking for: What would be the correct procedure in this case? What went/did I do wrong? Feel free to reply with references to the correct sections in the manuals... I didn't find what I was looking for so far... Thanks in advance...
  12. Hello all, I've had a problem ever since I've started flying with Vatsim, and therefore with a headset. The communications do come through the headset as I want them to, and the other sounds (cockpit, environment) through my speakers... except for the engine sounds, which come through the headset along with the voice. It's quite disturbing, since FSX doesn't offer to separate the engine sounds from the environment and cockpit ones, only from the voice. Anyone knows a solution? (I have FSX with Acceleration, fly the Aerosoft Airbus A320, and use Vatsim through FSInn.)
  13. Hey guys, I tried searching around but could not find an answer to my question. If my question however already has been asked and answered some place at the forum I apologize and ask kindly that someone point me to that thread. I am new to the forum btw so I apologize in advance. My question is regarding the jet engine sound effects in FSX. I am primarily using the PMDG 737 aircraft, which does have a more realistic engine sound than the default FSX aircraft, but I can't help but think there is something missing. I found 2 random videos on youtube which are not mine and which I take no credit for, I just want to ask you to watch them and compare the sound, the first video is FSX, the second is real aircraft: 1. - FSX: 2. - Real aircraft: My question is: is there a way (addon/setting tweak/whatever) to make the sound in FSX sound more like jet engines sound in real life at a distance? I am talking about the wavy-ish whistling/whining/change in pitch mixed with general sound warping (caused by aerodynamics?) that you can clearly hear aircraft make in real life like in the second video. That is something that's missing in FSX, and I would really like to fix that. The sound on the PMDG while in virtual cockpit view (or any other in/around the aircraft view for that matter) is pretty realistic, but when using the "fly by" camera like the one you can see being used in the first video, the sound is really dull and not very realistic. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for any replies.
  14. Hi Kyle or Ryan, I noticed that the Cost Index gives different ECON speeds depending on engine variant. PW CI90 equals GE/RR CI180, more or less. I thought it was more an FMC variant problematic (if any) than an engine one... Curious about that. By the way, I would guess giving the real world data you may find around that the correct data is the PW one. Cheers, Alex

    Avoiding starting engines

    So recently i downloaded some aircraft that require you to start the engines. I find this extremely annoying. Is there something i could change, maybe a code, that will make the engines startup on loading? Arjun
  16. Hi, I recently bought the MD11 PMDG software. I realized immediately that on take off, when the speed goes up rapidly, i reduce the thrust to adjust the speed. Just when i do that the power in the engines drops and then the engines don't respond at all; then go to idle. Any thoughts as to why that may be happening? Thanks

  18. Hello Oldprop team, Looks like you people missed a one major immersion effect for PMDG (though PMDG should have added it by themselves) which is the Engine and APU shimmering effect specially in high temperatures. It will be great if they added very soon to the 777 immersion. Thanks and regards, Behroz Baloch

    Engine sounds?

    I noticed from videos that the engine sounds from the interior are really muffled. Is this is the result of poor recording, or should it be that way?

  21. Hi! I am having problems starting the Nemeth Designs/MilViz Ch-47 Chinook . I have read through the manual to find out how to start this bird but it never seems to happen :( . The engines *DO* start-up but there is no rotation from the blades what-so-ever (Even with the ECL in GND Mode). Could someone please explain to me how to start-up this helicopter or any kind of tutorial would be appreciated! Kriss :t4012: .
  22. Hello, Does anyone knows the procedure and command to shut down engines of the DO228? I'm supposed to move right control levers to "shut off"; I hope, but I can't (levers stop at feather position). Your sincerely Alain
