  1. The Battery Switches shown on the "Lateral Switches" panel will not operate via a keyboard shortcut or externally assigned switch. They will only function when clicked by the mouse. The FSUIPC Console window shows multiple instances of the command sent with random parameters attached when the switch or assigned key is operated. When clicked on by the mouse it shows only the one instance. A keyboard shortcut or externally assigned switch works fine on the Phenom 100.
  2. For all no time have to read the MANUEL`s B747-400 QOTSII COLD and DARK (Short Version from PMDG_747-400_QOTSII_FSX_Tutorial_1.pdf) ELECTRIAL POWER UP 1. Overhead BATTERY switch ---> (ON) 2.

Connect Overhead APU Generators switches when illuminate PREFLIGHT 6. Turn the three IRS Mode selectors ---> (NAV) Press LSK 4R to copy the aircraft’s current GPS position into the scratchpad, then line select it into the SET IRS POS field below at LSK 5R Attention COM-RADIO MIC and SELECT-LIGHT ---> ON (for Clearance PRO-ATC/X) 7. At this point, continue with the FMC setup PAX - FUEL - FLIGHTPLAN ect. 8. Close the guard on the EMERGENCY LIGHTS switch ---> (ARM) 9.

On the CDU, press MENU, then FS ACTIONS, then PUSHBACK at LSK 4L……. 18. Rotate all three PACK selectors ---> (OFF) This is done to give the engines enough bleed air to start 19. Press the lower EICAS control panel ENG button to select the secondary Engine display on the lower EICAS. We need this to see the N2 values during the start. 20. Pull the black cylindrical overhead Start switches for both Engines 3 and 4. White lights illuminate at the ends of the switches to indicate the start process is in progress. 21. Pan down to the pedestal and lower EICAS. Turn the Engines 3 and 4 fuel control levers to RUN with a left click once N2 has reached 25%. 20. The engines will accelerate and stabilize. As soon as you hear a solenoid click sound and the two START selectors move back to their unpulled position with lights extinguished, repeat the procedure for Engines 1 and 2 BEFORE TAXI 21. Rotate the APU selector ---> (OFF) 22. Hydraulic PUMP 4 ---> (AUTO) 23. Rotate all three PACK selectors ---> (NORM) 24. Set the FLAPS to the selected takeoff setting (usually 10 or 20) 25. Check the flight controls using the STAT page of the lower EICAS 26. Press STAT again to blank the lower EICAS and Check your Equipment (Joystick) 27. Set the IGNITION switch ---> (ON) 28. Set the Transponder to TA/RA if at an ASDE equipped airport Run the BEFORE TAXI checklist from the QRH PROPER TAKEOFF PROCEDURE 1. Advance the Throttles to approximately 50% N1 2. Press TO/GA don’t use the MCP A/T button, it takes half a second or so to "capture 3. If TO/GA is not selected prior to 50 knots, AT operation will be inhibited until 400 feet. In this case, the throttles will only move manually until that point 4. Wait until you see THR REF annunciated on the FMA 5. Push the Throttles fully forward. They are dead now because the AT is active THINGS THE WIDE BETA TEAM WANTED YOU TO KNOW At high gross weights – particularly those at “hot and high” airports – be prepared for underwhelming performance. Take off rolls will be much longer, and the climb rate will be sluggish, particularly at acceleration altitude when retracting the flaps. When planning, normal remaining fuel values are much higher than you are used to. A good minimum is at least 30,000 pounds. If TO/GA is not selected prior to 50 knots, AT operation will be inhibited until 400 feet. In this case, the throttles will only move manually until that point. When soft disconnecting the AT, the disconnect switches need to be clicked twice with a 1-2 second pause in between to avoid the auto throttle disconnect EICAS message and associated caution. The APU will run while airborne, but it will not start unless the aircraft is on the ground. There is enough redundancy on the aircraft that its use while airborne is not required. Unlike the 777, the transfer of power between the engine generators and the APU is manual. Remember to reach up and transfer the power source from the engines to the APU prior to cutting fuel to the engines. Pilots of the NGX will likely be less prone to forgetting this step. Don't forget to press the MIC button on the ACP panel (below the radios panel) corresponding to the radio you want to transmit on or no-one will hear you online. Yes, it’s modeled that closely! There are certain calculations that you perform through the CDU that take a surprising amount of time to complete. A good example is the required trim setting generated by entering the %MAC. Keep in mind that the processing power in this FMC is equivalent to the old Intel 8086 processor. The FMC has been purposefully designed to have the same response times as the real FMC. GSX will interfere with the PMDG Ground Service vehicles. If you use GSX for parking, be sure to restart couatl before selecting service vehicles. When taxiing, keep speeds in turns at 12 knots or less to ensure that the body gear steering is active to assist the turn. Have a good flight and always a also always good landing Manfred Maier
  3. Is there a way of getting Vox ATC to launch automatically instead of having to start it from the panels? (Very annoying if your aircraft has more than 9 panels!) Especially interested if you can set up simstarter as an option to lauch voxatc automatically or not launch it! (You might want to do some FSX gliding so start your engine and taxying is tricky!) Rob
  4. Having FSX issues ever since I made the switch to Windows 10. Tried deleting my current CFG., no difference. I have the UIautomation core so that crash isn't the issue. Can't seem to figure out this problem but defiantly the fault of Windows 10. Really frustrating can't access FSrecorder due to this. It has no loading status bar and I cannot use the tool bar on circumstances without a black screen. Could really use some help.
  5. friends, how I can assign the ENGINE START LEVERS with FSUIPC. I want to use my command CH PRODC and I have several buttons available. What command can i use for this. Como puedo asignar con el FSUIPC, los engine start levers. Tks in advice. Fher.
  6. 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

  8. Just purchased the Flysimware Learjet 35A, Version 1.8, from FSPilotShop (exactly one day before their sale!!!), and am initially impressed with the quality of the graphics, cockpit sounds, clicks, bells and whistles. However, I am unable to start the blasted thing! Following the checklist for a cold and dark start is a no-op - while everything clicks on, the start sequence is non-operational. Even doing a CTRL+E start fails - the turbine spools up to 18.1 on the left engine only, and then shuts off to slowly return to zero. It does not even try to start the right engine. I am running P3D V3, which is a supported platform. Any ideas? I checked the Flysimware site and there are no references to starting problems.
