    • Hi, I posted on this before but now I have more information. The issue is that PFPX calls TOPCAT for the takeoff and landing data, and then brings the altimeter setting back in hectopascals, which gets passed to the OFP, even when the airport is located in a region in which inches of mercury would be preferred.   Attached is a screenshot of PFPX calling TOPCAT for takeoff information from Chicago O'Hare. You can see that PFPX/TOPCAT is fetching the altimeter setting in inches of mercury, and interpreting the METAR correctly - you'll see that under "Pressure," the correct numbers 30.06 are displayed.    However, when you look at the results window (this is the information that TOPCAT will append to the OFP), you'll see that the altimeter setting is in hectopascals ("QNH 1018"). You'll see it in the line that reads:   TEMP +2C QNH 1018 WIND 130/12 (09KT HW) (emphasis added)   That line is brought into the PFPX flight plan verbatim.   I'm guessing that TOPCAT is looking at a config setting somewhere that requests results be given in hPa, but for the life of me I can't see where that would be. The PFPX file for the aircraft I'm using has the units set at feet and pounds. Under TOPCAT performance module, the file that is called is Boeing 747-400 RB211-524H, but I'm not sure what that links to or even if it's the problem. Within TOPCAT, I have only one aircraft in the aircraft database, and under "Aircraft Details," the pressure units are listed as inches of mercury.   Inside the TOPCAT "Aircraft" folder, the files are unreadable to me (i.e., not readable by a standard text editor). Inside the TOPCAT "Configurations" folder,  I can see some readable configurations but I can't see a line for setting a preference for the altimeter setting.   That's all I can think of. Can anyone help me get TOPCAT to send inHg to PFPX? Thanks!

    • Hallo zusammen,   ich möchte die Lichtkonsole des A350 nachbauen. Dabei haben sich mir folgende Fragen aufgetan:   1. mit welchem Shortcut kann man das Licht steuern? die Standartshortcuts für Landelicht an etc. funktionieren beim A350 nicht und in der Spezifischen Liste findet sich nichts für die Lichter.   2. Gibt es eine Möglichkeit Befehle auf Tastend zu stellen? Also so, dass der Schalter nur solange betätigt ist, bis ich kein Signal mehr gebe?
    • What do you mean by throttles "locked together"? Are corp throttles physically tied together in this case? If this causes uneven thrust, then the levers are not calibrated evenly. If locking them together is supposed to work, both throttles must return exactly the same values for any position. But why don't you just unlock them and use them as separate levers as in the real thing? Both throttles at the same position doesn't necessarily result in the same engine N1 there either.
    • Hello, All:   I had asked a few months when the full fuselage paint kit for the A330 Pro would be available. The thread has been closed and I haven't been able to find a release date or if it's available I don't know where. If anyone knows if it's available or will be it would be appreciated.   Regards
