  1. The registry fix works for me. Thank you.
  2. I bought it yesterday because of Marks recommendation. It works in p3d v4 and I love it.
  3. Does it come with its own bucket? The one we had at our airfield always needed one. After it had flown you had to put it underneath the engine or fear the wrath of every environmentalist. It would drip oil like crazy. Also slow take off speed and stall speed meant on particular days with nice winds it would take as much airstrip to get airborne as the glider being winched up next to it. Albeit not as fast and on landing it could perform what we called a helicopter landing. On windy days virtually no roll. I do not know if this is standard, but ours had a metal bar right behind the pilot seats. That is where I had my first flight in one. The first in an engine powered plane for that matter. The pilot said come on you don't need to sit in the back, it is safe up here. If we are going to crash just walk the other way. I need to check if I can find a picture. Almost thirty years have past....
  4. is today. Why? I just felt like it tldr; Great community, thanks, made a video without speech, because plane awesome: https://youtu.be/5M1HuyPfJBc Let me start a while back, I bought the thing in December 2015, the 16th to be exact and eventhough I have flown myself irl I could not get my head wrapped around the model. Landing were botched and so on. I did what every good simmer does and blamed the model. Throttle too twitchy, autopilot bad, avionics bad, you get the gist... It gathered dust for quite a while then I fiddled around in FS Economy with it a bit but always just autopiloting through the world and not really seeing the appeal. Then I stumbled across some great videos by chance and I decided to give it another go. Strapped for cash in FS Economy, I had to go with the cheapest offer. That happened to be in Australia. Now do not get me wrong, Australia is nice and all but well, somewhat featureless. And I like to do the sim flying at the actual time with the actual weather. At the time I can sim, Australia is always dark. So I said to myself, why not fly it home. To Canada. And while you are at it, learn to fly the thing. The DHC-6 has always been my favourite plane, sadly I never got to ride in one yet. I just love its looks, its power, the complete package so to say. So off I went on an adventure so to say. The journey started on April 3rd this year and I reached Canada on September 2nd. And boy was it a ride and then some, 109 stops overall. The weather in Indonesia and India was atrocious. I could not get to Nepal to do mountain flying because of it. Nevertheless it was done. Almost exclusively on vatsim, apart from the days where my Internet crapped out and flown by hand in real time. And it was a handful. IFR at night in weather really is something A bit tooling around in Europe was needed to get the lease rates done in FSE as I not always took the most economical routes. Now that this is done I kind of feel like it needs to see other places as well.Falklands? China and Nepal? Madagascar? I am not quite sure yet. Maybe Japan and complete the round trip. I will see. This time of enjoyment was possible because of this great community and some members in particular. Thank you Finn and Matthijs for all the questions you answered, that I only silently read and never replied to. And thank you and the rest of Aerosoft for sticking with the product over such a live span. That is way more than many other companies do. Thank you Mark Hurst for your awesome tutorials, I wish I had the craftsmanship as you do, to built something alike. Now the thing lands on the runway, as it should (eventhough I'd have gotten a bonk on the head for flaps extension in the final turn and cutting power too early by my FI). And thank you for all your other tips as well. Still on the fence whether I should get the TSS sound pack or not. And I would have not learned about LINDA without you and still have to try your icing mod. Thank you jankees (and of course all the other livery creators) for making a cool looking livery. Sadly I am as bad with photoshop as I am with making videos. So I will not have a livery with my call sign, but work like yours has made the product way more enjoyable. Thank you nieto with your 10 posts and your awesome clear window texture. The color degradation that I had from the original always irked me. This has made this so much more enjoyable. And thanks to all that have not been mentioned but make up this great, helpful community...
  5. Same with p3d v4. Creators update borked it. Ihave to rebuild the font cache before every shutdown or I have no quartz font for the Twotter. Time for the extended extended (nudge nudge, hint hint)
  6. I use a combination of LINDA (Free Button Tool) and FSUIPC. Both together have altered the way I can use my HOTAS in such an incredible way. FSUIPC's Filter Option is awesome and with LINDA and the Twin Otter Module getting all essential functions onto the stick and throttle is a breeze. I also dug up a thrust reverse on button press LUA script in the FSUIPC's forums. IIRC I had to fiddle around a bit to get it working with one button as it was written to work with thrust levers that have a button on each of their ends, but I managed to get that to work. Now I just fully pull down throttle, push the button. Move the throttle forward and it will now thrust reverse until I pull the throttle down fully again or push the button again. Works great for me. As this is not my lua script I will not post it here for I can give no credit to the initial author. Just tell me if you have FSUIPC and want to try it out. Then I'll try to find the original script on the web and post my changes.
  7. I had that very problem as well. And it was not an issue with the airplane. At least for me it was with receiving the Insider Preview Windows 10 version (Creators Update me thinks). It has some issues with fonts amongst other things. One of them is being problematic with child windows for .NET and p3dv3 I just opted out of insider, rolled back and am a happy camper with not having to install Quartz.ttf and reboot to get the Navaids/radios and clock working again.
  8. As I am still on p3d v3 and not planning on upgrading until the GTN 750 is working in v4 I'd say shut up and take my money.... This is my by far most flown plane and I would love to see it getting worked upon. The countless hours of enjoyment would make me pay even more than 7 bucks. Just put a donation button somewhere and I'll be sure to hit it if this plane would get a GTN 750 integration. Hell I'd even try to crowdfund a continued development of this plane. Put up an amount of your development fees, as nothing comes for free as a community goal. If it is reached, development can continue. Clearly stated goals like multipilot and lighting and whatnot for example. Peeps can decide if it is worth it to them. If not, well no risk for anyone, money back and you have not wasted your time on something that would not sell.
  9. I had still the debug mode on, from working on an aircraft on mine. This throws quite some errors, for example one typo in Fahrenheit and a couple of other things. Is this still maintained? Are these errors of no concern? Mostly they go together with the prop beta
