  1. And here too. AS updater reports v 3.0.0.0 installed but no FE option in the pop up.
  2. Thanks Rainero, nice screenshot. Sounds like it might work ok in v5 then. Cheers
  3. Ah, yes thanks Pedro. I saw that last month and I was hoping that things have changed since then. I think I'll put off updating to P3DV5 for a little while so I can use MIchael's DC-8 for a bit longer. I'm looking forward to updating to P3DV5 however because of the reported performance improvements and other enhancements like natively supported sloping runways and visual effects.
  4. Fantastic news, thanks Michael. Looking forward to the update. Forgive me if this has been answered elsewhere, but will P3DV5 compatibility be an eventuality?
  5. Thanks AAC47, that's interesting. The flight manual states: "For all jet aircraft flying at high altitude, the damping of the long perlod oscillations is rather weak, causing speed and altitude variations which may result in difficulty in maintaining an accurate flight path, Although the aircraft is quite stable under ail flying conditions, the autopilot and the altitude control should be used for optimum performance." Next time I encounter oscillations in level flight I'll try your technique of going to manual and retrimming. Pretty sure I tried this last time but the oscillations returned after a few seconds upon autopilot re-engagement. They weren't severe movements, about 50-100ft above and below the target. I did consider descending to a lower altitude but on that flight I wanted the better the fuel consumption at the higher flight level so I stuck with it.
  6. Yes, I've found that that the alt hold porpoises a little too, but possibly not in all areas of the flight regime. Didn't notice any oscillationi until the last couple hundred miles of a long flight (Johannesburg to Manchester), after the final step climb to FL380.
