Re: P3D UNEXPLAINED CTD

Do you use GSX? A friend had a problem with P3D (specifically V3 with FSLabs Concorde) which caused CTD with nothing in event viewer. It was eventually traced to a GSX issue which had caused it:- When I uninstalled GSX it showed a message saying a couple of files had reverted to the default ones. I'...

Re: Changing Aircraft

FS Labs Concorde is the worst, FSX MUST be started with the "trike", engine running, then load Concorde (in P3D load the cub, engine running, then load Concorde)

Changing Aircraft

Flew the QW RJ85 yesterday, after the flight I shut it down iaw the checklist which includes switching off the hydraulic pumps. I then loaded the Viscount, started engines, taxied out (brakes are working fine) but can't extend the flaps. Hydraulic pressure is fine on the gauge. Took off anyway (used...

Re: Video card, or CPU?

A theory I once heard was to set your frame rate to unlimited, then while running FS with frame rate displayed, shrink the FS window as far as you can while still able to read the frame rate. If the frame rate increases with it stabilise at small screen then graphics is your limiting factor. If fram...

Re: New Recruits please post details here

DMs VC10 autolands extremely well, unlike the (Payware) Quality Wings 146/RJ series which flares 20 feet above the runway, closes the throttle and waits until it stalls and plants itself!

Re: Minimum Runway Distance For Trident Please

Tried the T2 at very light weight, payload only 250 Kg, fuel 4,000Kg - Aircraft gross weight 41351 Kg, Water Meth injection ON. Needed a runway of 1,600 metres. T3 at similar load would need slightly more as the empty weight is more (same load gross weight is 45865Kg) and V1 is 9 knots faster. My te...

Re: Minimum Runway Distance For Trident Please

Fully loaded, not a chance. you cannot even reach V1 in the runway length available.

Would need some experimenting to determine how light either needs to be to take off from that runway.

I might play around later tonight and see what I can do at light weights.

Re: Minimum Runway Distance For Trident Please

Are you thinking of any airport in particular, and is it a Trident 2 or 3?

They operated several times a day out of Glasgow with 2658 metres and had runway to spare.

Re: Forum Software Upgrade

CBFS isn't connecting to FSA just now, is this all connected to the same events?
