Hello guys, I ask the experts .... my request is not aircraft specific, even if this case relates to MD11; I'm trying to assing to a joystick button a spoiler detent to increase/decrease speedbtrakes without success. I can only assign "Spoiler ON / OFF" but not incremental notches like for flaps to understand; I see in FSUIPC "Button and Keypresses/FS Control" there is the Spoiler Incr and Decr command but it seems to have no effect, at least on PMDG MD11. Does anyone know where I am wrong or suggest me the correct configuration in FSUIPC? Thanks in advance, Riccardo
Hi, I'm trying to stabilize my P3D install by finishing up some last installs, therefore I have two questions. I have the x-55 Rhino and I would like to set the Aileron Trim Axis to one of my rotaries, as I have done with my Elevator Trim Axis. However, I'm unable to find this axis in the Prepar3D menu. Second of all, the x-55 has a slider (SBK if I recall correct) which in FSX I could instantly use as my speedbrake wihout any tricks or fancy stuff, however in P3D I cannot get P3D to accept that slider as a Speedbrake. Has anyone had any luck with this? Thanks in advance! Mark
Hi, I recently acquired the x-55 and it works really great, however I do have some minor problems. One of them being rather annoying. I would like to use the speedbrake slider on the x-55 throttle to.... use the speedbrake in game ... who would have thought! In the P3D Axis settings menu I try to slide the Speed Brake Slider (SBL), however P3D seems unable to recognize it as a valid Axis. I tried the exact same thing in FSX and there it is automatically recognized as a valid speedbrake axis. Does anyone else have the same problem, or even better a solution? Thanks in advance! Mark
Hi. Almost every time I start my descent as programmed/calculated by the vnav, I end up way too high and/or too fast for my approach and I have to circle several times to set up for a stable approach and landing. I always have to use a lot of speedbrakes also. I know somebody will reply that I should input winds to the fmc as it matters if I have tailwind but the problem seems to be every time. And its not every time I have tailwind, sometimes headwind etc. Is the vertical flight path calculation realistic on the ngx? Any suggestions? My autothrottle seems to idle on the descent (it says "arm" and end up about 40% N1), that should be correct? Thank u!
