Hello! I have posted this query over on the Orbx site and have received some replies but as of yet have received no correction, so I thought I would try the assembled minds here at AVSIM to see if they have seen anything similar. I have developed a condition where setting and following either HDG or NAV(GPS) after taking off from an Orbx airport (currently KSAN, KSBA, and KTEX) sends my aircraft off in the wrong direction. This "directional offset" seems to be consistently 90 degrees west from the desired direction. For instance, if I set HDG to 360 degrees the plane will fly at 270. This is happening with multiple aircraft. When I disable the Orbx airport and restart the flight, both HDG and NAV work correctly. If I subsequently re-enable the Orbx airport the symptom returns. I have also uninstalled and re-installed the airport (using my local directory versus the P3D directory) but the symptom remains. I am scratching my head and reviewing my log book to remember what changed, and the closest thing I can think of when I migrated to Orbx Central 4.0. The issue predates the P3DV4.5HF patches, and I am fully up to date. I am going to follow up with Orbx to inquire where compass headings et al are recorded in P3D. Maybe it is possible to refresh that component? Perhaps CONTENT? Driving me buggers... Thanks for you assistance!
I've been using Microsoft Flight Simulator since 1984 when the Apple IIC version came out. After installing FSX a couple years ago I've been taking of and landing hundreds of time in my PMDG-747 with absolutely no problem. A couple weeks ago I installed the FSX-SE version and suddenly I'm missing all of my ILS approaches; each and every one is lining up the aircraft at the left of every airport in any condition of weather, it also show the route line in a slanted position in the navigation panel (it never align with the plane); even if I set wind manually to 0 knots and perfect conditions. I know exactly how to set up the waypoints and ILS approaches on the FMC, since I've been doing it for years. The problem seems to be the Steam Edition in which I don't know how to fix this issue. I'm considering to return to my out-of-the-box FSX Gold Edition; but the reason why I've installed the SE edition is because it fix some video graphic problems with FSX out-of-the-box on Windows 10 64 bits. Any help will be very well appreciated. David Quinn
Hi friends, I have a problem with my 737/800 NGX from PMDG. As soon as I engage the autopilot, it is not possible to change the flightdirection without switching the heading button from the autopliot and turning the headingselection knob. For example: Assumed heading direction is 300. Assumed speed is 250 knots and Altitude is 9000 feet. Now I engage the Autopilot with a chosen speed from 250 knots and an Altitude 9000 feet, both set by the Altitude and Speed knobs. Also the Autothrottle is switched on and the green LEDs are glowing. The plane flies now the 250 knots and holds the Altitude perfect as chosen. But I can not control the plane to change the heading, by only using the yoke, even if I did not engage the Button for holding the headingdirection. To operate a headingdirection change, I have to engage the "Holding Heading" and I have to use the heading selector knob to change the direction by turning it into the wished direction. If I do not so, I can move the yoke full right or left, but the plane moves only unruly a few degrees in the chosen direction, and after putting it back to the middle position, the plane returns to the last headingcourse before engaging the autopilot. It seems to me, that there is anywhere a kind or courseprogramming taking place, that brings the plane to the last flown course, even if the heading selector of the autopilot is switched off. After disengaging the autopilot at all, I can control the plane normal by using the yoke. I have no idea, how to fix this problem. Does anybody has a solution for this strange behaviour of the plane? Thanks a lot. Robert Hammer
I bought the PA34 Seneca V from Carenado and it seems like it is auto correcting for wind drift, the heading stayed about 10 degrees right of the heading bug on autopilot. I had a crosswing right to left of about 12kts. This is a problem for ATC control when flying online. Any ideas what's going on. I haven't found any similar postings
