  1. Hi, Not sure what is causing this, whether it's xplane 11.11 or p2a 2.4.x. I've flown 2 flights now, one from KJFK to KROC, and one from KORD to KDEN. In both cases, i built the flight plan, and it was exported to the xplane fms output directory and i loaded it into the FMS. The initial route line from leaving the airport to the first waypoint has been off a decent amount, compared to what the airplane instruments show. Screenshot is attached for the KORD-KDEN route. You can see that on the plane's gps display, i'm right on top of the route line, but in p2a I'm a decent amount off the line. ATC keeps telling me i'm off course, and giving me vectors back to the line it thinks is correct. But, when i'm on auto pilot, i can't get back to the p2a line cuz the plane gps thinks the line is different. Not sure what's going on here, but i have never seen this prior to 2.4. Joe
  2. Hi all, after watching the world tour with "funforluis" at youtube last weekend I got interested in this nice plane. It flies just fine but to slow. Example Specs: 3800 pounds at pressure alt of 8000 with 20° ISA, 2400 rpm, 26MP and 81 fuel flow it should speed up to 161kts. Example Flight: About 2800 pounds at the given specs from above I only get around 140kts IAS runing 50 LOP. But even on peak EGT its not going any faster. Gear and flaps were up, cowl flaps closed (but made no difference). This behaviour is reproducable for any of the given specs/speeds. Getting worse on the higher end and coming closer to the specs at the lower end. But even stays 10-15kts behind at the lower settings. What am I missing/not setting correctly? Have a good flight, bergziege
  3. Hi everybody, Recently I bought a Carenado CT210M for X-Plane 11. During an investigation of problems I encountered with the BENDIX/KING HOL Display readouts, I discovered the following: When I clicked the "DME" button on the audio selection panel, I heard in morse code the ID "AFI". At that time I was doing a test flight in Belgium, near the city of Liège (EBLG). I started Navigraph Charts Desktop app and searched for the ID "AFI". The Navrigraph app told me that this ID belongs to a VOR-DME station at the city of "Affligem", Belgium, some 60 nm north of the city of Liège (if I remember well the direction). The frequency of this VOR-DME being: 114.9 MHz. Because I was not too far away from that station I decided to fly to it. I was asking myself: how come I hear this VOR-DME station while I had the X-Plane 530 (NAV1 / VLOC1) tuned to MAS VOR (106.8 MHz) and the X-Plane 430 (NAV2/VLOC2) tuned to LGE VOR (115.45 MHz) ? Next I turned on the X-Plane 11 Data Output for DME. I saw that the last column of this Data Output, with the caption "DME-3" was constantly giving the value "114.90" which is the frequency of the Affligem VOR-DME (in this region where I was flying the CT210M X11). There is/was no way to control the obviously fixed tuning to 114.9 MHz of the DME, of which the audio (morse code) could be heard via the DME button on the audio panel. Anyone that has more knowledge about this ? I would appreciate your reaction. Paulsk
  4. My first trip ever in the old freeware 737-800 by EADT:
  5. X-Line Virtual Aviation is a new virtual airline for X-Plane pilots. Currently we have 21 planes in our fleet, and offer 800+ routes across the whole world. We also allow charter flights, so everyone can fly their favorite aircraft on their favorite route. We use the new VAM software, including the SIM ACARS. This gives us the oppertunity to log the complete flight, including all kinds of extras, like landingspeed, lights on/off, taxispeed, etc. As soon as PMDG releases their DC6 for X-Plane, we will add it to our fleet, along with some historic routes. We are working on a shared-cockpit function. Check out our new website and join this nice new VA: Kind regards, Johan Wijnands CEO
  6. Hi, I've been working on a plugin for FSDS that exports X-Plane .obj files. If there are any FSDS users interested in this I'm happy to share it. I'm also open to sharing the source if any programmers would like to contribute to the cause. Please drop me a line if interested. Thanks! - rundio
  7. Following on from my previous flight (, I take the Alabeo R66 from Lorient, up to Brest and then to the Island of Ouessant. Starting out at Lorient, I take a flight over the center before following the N165 motorway towards Quimperle and along to Brest Brest visible in the distance Passing over the river into Brest Flying over the city and west over the sea towards Ouessant Settling down it a field and enjoying the sunset
  8. A 2 hour flight to Nice/Côte d'Azur...
  9. I do apologize if this has been addressed, but I'm finding the headshake (or bodyshake) feature a bit annoying. As soon as a flight starts, I get a wobble in the camera, as if I am floating. After that, it gets worse, with a lot of shake during takeoff, as well as during flight with winds. I don't mind a little realism, but this shake is annoying and I can't find anywhere in the settings to turn it off. The shake can get bad enouhg that I will get skips or stutters every so often, even if my view hasn't changed, but it's just in the cockpit. If anyone knows what to do or has any insight on this, please feel free to contribute.
  10. Dear all, Does anyone uses the external FPS limiter for the Radeon graphics card on the Windows 10 operating system? If so could you please share your experience with the rest of the community about setting it up in Windows 10 and a like. The reason I'm asking this is that before Windows 10 I could use the software Radeon_external_FPS_limiter (found it on Boyote tweaking site), but since Windows 10 the mentioned software doesn't work. Also is there some other similar software that could work on Windows 10? Thank you all in advance for the helpful tips and suggestions. Safe simming Marko

    Just need some clarification....

    Excuse me while I say this, People are going insane over Prepar3d like it has been the greatest gift to flight sim, which is fine everyone has a right to be excited. However I have been following the forums closely for the past couple of days to see what people are saying and there is one thing I need clarification on. Simmers have been trying to find a way to get past the OOM's, Stutters, low FPS, and the horrible night flying in FSX forever, and to me it seems like they have missed what has always been right infront of their faces. I fly both FSX and Xplane and also have Prepar3d and people refuse to see the potential (much more potential if you ask me) Xplane offers for reasons I simply just don't understand. It seems to me X-Plane has never recieved the open arms this verson of Prepar3d has, and if people were half as excited about the future of x-plane as they are about Prepar3d we would be lightyears ahead of where we currently are. I love FSX don't get me wrong, but we need to realize that X-plane is a simulation that with a little more backing would surpass all of its competitors. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

  16. Approaching Mykonos at sunset with 737-200. Enjoy!
  17. Never having flown a turboprop aircraft, I have a few questions. This is not related to any one model or sim, for that matter. For now, i'm learning the Carenado PC-12 and soon. I will pick up the LES Saab. Whenever I fly a turboprop, the aircraft seems to roll quite a bit once the brakes or released. This happens in every turboprop model I've flown in X-plane or FSX. Is this how it really is? I feel like i'm always riding the brakes when taxing along. Do these aircraft go through brake pads faster that piston or Jet aircraft? I have a button on my HOTAS system set to reverse thrust. I've used this once in a while in flight with Turboprops and it does a great job of slowing the plane down when I'm coming in too fast. (something that I always have trouble with faster aircraft). Is that Taboo when flying turboprops? Do they every use reverse thrust in flight to slow down? Forgive me if these are dumb questions, Rob
  18. The excellent Flyjsim 727 complete is available on the org store for $.29.95 Some Frooglesim videos of the 727 in action.
  19. John of Maxx-XP fame is at it again! I was perusing the X-Pilot fora and happened across these images which may be of interest to X-Planers here at AVSIM. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, so I'll just let them do the talking. :smile: (Original X-Pilot topic) And in case anyone missed the winter screenshots that were shared earlier: Exciting times for X-Plane!
