  1. I found them Dave. I don't know how I overlooked the Redist folder but I did. By the way, even the yoke disappeared! Anxious to fly is some easier areas and see how it goes. I hate getting my hopes up because, as I stated before, every new load of the plane seems to be an adventure. LOL
  2. Dave, I am happy to report that after uninstalling, reboot, reinstall, clearing out P3D shakers and cfg I have a much better product. I flew a short flight from KLAS to KLAX with AS weather. It is a very taxing area as you know. Performance was much better although I did get some stutters over the LA area which is always covered in smog. The plane strayed off the NAV course and had to be corrected. I was given a different RW which required putting in the Route and choosing the new RW. It gave me a couple short Airways to line me up on the proper course to the RW. However while making the turn to line up on the course both airways disappeared. APPR captured the route. I tried to find the Simmconnect files in the Prepar3D Program Folder and was unable to find them per the Airbus forum link you provided. Thanks for all your help.
  3. Dave, me again. I learned through another thread you posted on where the C++Redistributable can be found. I have several. I have two newer versions that have been installed recently. One is (x64) and one is (x86). They are versions 14.0.24215.1 (x64) and 14.0.24212.0 (x86)
  4. Hi Dave, I did uninstall the CRJ using windows uninstall function. I did not, however, manually delete any files. I don't think I rebooted before in installed the new one. I don't know what C++ Redistributable 2015 is or how to check if I do have it. Nor do I know where to find it. I was completely baffled with the issues I was having. It was like every time I loaded it up something different would blow it up. If you can help me out with the C++Redistributable issue I will sure do what I can to figure this out.
  5. P3Dv4, Windows 7 i7-4790K @4 GHz 8GB 64 Bit SP1 GEForce GTX 1080ti First flight from KMSP to KMDW. First observation; Frames rates were good but I had stuttering. FPS at FL300 jumped from 21 to 115. They are as erratic at other flight levels. I tried different settings but no changes observed in the stuttering. My return flight was with NGX with no stutters. Second flight I still had the mini-stutters. Start up and flight went well until decent and nearing final. I was using VS for decent. I had throttle pulled back to near idle. Then the throttle began accelerating on its own. I would pull it back and a short time later it would accelerate. That continued to landing. I was unable to get it to stop. Exited and restarted computer. Third flight from KSAN to KLAX. From cold and dark I began startup and programming of FMS. During pushback I began the start up procedure. I hit the fuel cutoff switch and then used my mouse to move engine #2 throttle to idle. However, it moved down and shut off. That continued for several attempts and did the same with engine #2. I then did an uninstall and reinstalled the plane. No anti-virus was on and administrative rights for install. Attempted the same flight from KSAN to KLAX. All worked well and takeoff was accomplished. I departed RW 9 to the south on the flight path with NAV activated. However the plane flew straight through the first waypoint. I used heading adjustment to get back on course. It was a short flight. Stuttering became very bad as I flew over LA to decent into RW 25 right. I next flew the TFDI 717 out of LA to KSFO. No issues with frame rates or stuttering. So far my experience has been that the new fix created problems I never had before. I will continue to fly and observe. I cannot find anything wrong with my settings since two other planes seem to be stable.
  6. I the risk of sounding really ignorant, what is the latest C++Restributable 2015?
  7. I experienced the same thing the first flight I flew into KASE. I flew KSLC to KASE. The second flight they were there. That was some time ago and I can't remember if anything changed such as hotfixes etc. You might try another flight and see if they appeared.
  8. I can report the same problem. Trying to maintain a steady speed is nearly impossible. I monitor the winds and adjust for them but even with little head or tail wind it is difficult to maintain a steady speed. The "up/down" indicator on the speed tape is constantly jumping up and down. Throttle is extremely sensitive. If I try to put in more null and turn down sensitivity I run into other problems with the throttle. Yes and yes.

  10. Not sure it is the same issue but I cannot seem to turn on the APU since the last update. The fist closes on both switches and then nothing happens. So the cycle begins as to do it over and over wondering if I am turning it off and on. Putting it into either of the other states starts it so just a minor annoyance. I have total confidence all these things will be fixed in time. I really enjoy flying this plane and am grateful for the work being put into it to make is nearly perfect!
  11. When I switch to the exterior views the sim slows to a crawl. Switching between views takes several seconds with FPS in the 2 to 5 category. I suspect, and please, correct me if I am wrong, that it may be my graphics card. I am using GTX 770 in P3Dv4 and windows 7. I have a good system and the GTX 1080 ti is in my view. Monitoring prices and doing research on a good card that will fit my needs. The look of the card is not important to me. Just want a good work horse.
  12. Is there a preferred default plane? Mine is one of the fighter jets, possibly F18. I don't recall making it the default plane so I am going to assume the sim did that at install.
  13. Thanks Hans. I appreciate your subtle humor. What I meant was, as accurate as you can probably get with Saitek. I use it with PMDG and A2A and have no problems with the simple actions it is expected to make. LOL. I will continue to tweek it and calibrate to get the best that I can out of it.
  14. Hi Eduard. I have checked calibration, in fact, before the flights since my yoke was twitching. I have sensitivity at max and null just a bit off max to stop the twitching. I did monitor the FLTC page to confirm that they had not deployed. Reverse power checked and armed. #4. I will certainly monitor this one. I use Saitek throttle and it is typically very accurate. I pull it into idle position and then to reverse. That said, given the issues I have been having with some strange anomalies that I mentioned in my earlier post....that may indeed be the culprit. I will do some testing tomorrow. Thanks for your input. I appreciate it.
