Hi Garry :hello: Yes I have win 7 on C drive which is a 32gig ssd and FSX on a 1tb drive The SSd is becoming full as windows constantly updates itself and the pc is mildly clocked which may be another reason for the occasional crashes. I will look at getting a 50gig SSd amd return the clockings to d...

Re: G-AZSU

The 748 behaves on tarmac the same as the native fs aircraft do on grass. That is it bogs down as soon as power is reduced. I would hazard a guess there is some settings in config file that determines on how it rolls depending on the terrain surface. I try to avoid taxying, usually appearing at the ...

Re: Couple of problems with Trident in FSX

Ive not flown the trident for a while but I cant think if there is a master switch for the autopilot. So if its in a default off condition theres no way to switch it on.Try a loading a default aircraft first and switch the autopilot on If it works ok, leave it on and change aircraft to the trident I...
