  1. well, this is what I see happening on my rig: - install navigraph airac: correct data - install antarctica: wrong data - install navigraph airac again: correct data Leonardo support didnt think it likely either that a scenerypack would interfere with their product as such, but there it is.
  2. I've had a bug happen with the Leonardo Maddog X, P3dV4.5. I could not enter a route in FSM from SAWH to SCGC, as that froze the sim or gave fps in the single digits. Distance between MBI and SCGC came out as 88000nm. Upon reporting a bug with Leonardo we came to the conclusion that the airac data of SCGC was wrong. <documents>\Maddog X Files\Navdata\wpNavAPT.txt has, after installation of Antarctica, the following values on SCGC: GLACIAR UNION SCGC18 09843180-999.000000-999.000000000.0018002461 GLACIAR UNION SCGC36 09843000-999.000000-999.000000000.0000002461 This should be: GLACIAR UNION SCGC18 09843180-79.777778 -83.320833000.0018002461 GLACIAR UNION SCGC36 09843000-79.777778 -83.320833000.0000002461 I fixed it by running navigraph update, overwriting the faulty data. Of course, one could also manually change this via the numbers above. I can confirm that the faulty data comes from the Antarctica pack. (re)Installing it gives the faulty data back in said file. Note this for me came up for the Leonardo Maddog, but I suspect this happens with other addons able to use airac data too.

  4. Process question: with dare I state poor feedback from Aerosoft on this topic and the statement above that "the project is closed", why keep a support forum open if questions about proven(!) product bugs are not answered nor solved? This makes the whole use of a forum like this "debatable".
  5. Any news on this, as this is 100% repeatable for me at least?
  6. I too see this happening. It apparently happens that the generator, while on, does not power "fully" the aircraft and definately not recharges the battery. While flying, after a while, the battery dies (as shown on shift2 window) and you are left powerless. I think I can trace it back to the c&d button, but it could also be some other aircraft setting under the hood. I have to play around with starting on a default ac before going into the AN2. When engine running, I see the following on the battery amp meter (center console, 26 in manual) and amp meter (left dash, 10 in manual) : - bat off, gen off --> battery amp 0, amp 0 --> OK - bat on, gen on --> battery amp -2, amp 0.6 --> NOT OK - bat on, gen off --> battery amp 6, amp 0 --> OK - bat off, gen on --> battery amp 0, amp 0.6 --> OK It seems the bat on, gen on situation shorts out the charging or something: so battery drains despite gen on. And when it drains, gen does not power the aircraft anymore. So either i'm missing something, or something is quite not right. To circumvent, I just turn off batter and have gen turned on after startup, so i keep power and battery does not drain. I will check further on loading other ac before the AN-2 and/or use of the C&D button. see attached screen with gen on, bat off state.
  7. seeing this old thread but I experienced the same thing after installing the new v1.1.0.0 updated aircraft. I experienced the same thing but now got the message "brakes inhibited", which I dont remember from before. Searching in the manuals, I saw there is a switch for it on center console, 2nd row, left most switch. Most switches have to be turned upward (on). The brake main switch, next to air power open on the left hand lower console, is an inhibitor switch, so turning it ON/UPWARD turns on an inhibitor effectively switching off the brakes. Turning it OFF/DOWN solved it for me. Maybe this is what's the case here too, as I don't remember the notice from before the v1.1.0.0 upgrade?
  8. I simply love the QW/F1 146. She doesn't have thrustreversers, so yeah, set those auto spoilers and use the airbrakes. They are very efficient. And Mikonos is on my wantedlist as well, so that will happen too. For now I'm busy circumventing Scandinavia for Andras Meridian Airlines. Next stop: Valan (northcape!).
  9. Well, I forgot about it too . But looking forward to another nice flight with you guys in which my T-38 or brandnew 146 series can be put to the test .
  10. I think any GA parking will do, as they're generally big enough?
  11. I'm very much eyeing the QW Bae146 series, which came out last weekend. It looks like holding out on the JustFlight version like Matt suggested was spot on. Has anyone bought it yet? Impressions from the quallity wings and Flight1 websites and youtube are very good imo.
  12. Blowing some life back into this old thread... Since flying online again this week with some nice folks has whetted my online appetite again, I hereby have a suggestion which I myself intend to follow strictly: Whenever I'm flying, either offline or online, I'll at least be online on the Aerosoft Teamspeak server. That way a very spontaneous online flight can be set up, just by asking me (or anyone) on the TS channel. A server is set up in no time and enough fun can be had. I had a very nice flight this week with just Dave (aka Habit109), which inspired me to start this. So, if you are flying sim on FSX (but Rise of Flight could also do for instance), just also be logged in on the Aerosoft Teamspeak server. If everybody here does this, there will most likely be a lot more action at EAFS or other fields online than we've had before. If you're asked to come online flying but can't, or maybe first want to finish your offline flight, that's fine too ofcourse. This idea is just for presenting more opportunities to fly online with eachother. What say you?
  13. Dave, I noticed some omissions in some of the repaints myself. In the parts that are to be pasted in the aircraft.cfg, under the [sim] part, sometimes T38A or T38A1 is mentioned instead of T38A3. I changed all to T38A3, since all the regular paints have that, although I haven't accounted if all is well (all repaints showing and working under the aircraft menu). Furthermore, always make sure that under the [fltsim.xxx] the xxx is an inclining number. Any break in the "chain" (ie 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7) will make all repaints after the missing number not visible under the aircraft list. As far as TrackIR is concerned: It is my most useful and never to be missed addition to FSX, or any flightsim for that matter. I simply can't fly without it anymore.
