  1. With very few exceptions (and I don't think you'll come across them) it's the same as P3D. There is no manual, just videos which can be found by searching for "Honeycomb How To Video". The videos published by Aerosoft are awesome. Here is a link to my search: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=Honeycomb+Bravo+How+To+Video
  2. Unknown. Mine works fine on 2.0 or 3.1. I don't have 3.2, but given how USB Specs are not coordinated (at ALL) in the industry there is room for speculation on 3.2. I will endevor to keep an eye on it.
  3. The "Manual Calibration" is the the name that Honeycomb gave the procedure, so that's is what he's asking. If your Alpha is not connected directly to a computer USB port (as in, not via a Hub) then please try doing that and giving the Manual Calibration another whirl. Additionally, please ensure your Alpha is not connected to a USB 3.0 Port. USB 2.0 or 3.1 or later is fine, but there are compatibility issues with USB 3.0 ports. Honeycomb products are USB 2.0, and 3.1+ is truly backwards compatible but USB 3.0 can cause timing issues with USB 2.0 devices.
  4. It's normal for the altitudes to be populated. If you get different instructions, you just change them. Many times the clearance would be "Descend via the JIIMS3 arrival" and they'd give you short cuts traffic permitting. Best wishes.
  5. That is usually an axis calibration or axis reversal issue in P3D.
  6. That sounds like a WIndows Audio setting, look at the Windows Sounds application, Communications Tab and select "Do Nothing". Hopefully that's it.
  7. Just adding a little additional information. The reason there are no MSFS drivers for users is because Asobo writes the binds and functions in MSFS. This might change sometime next year, but that's how it is for now. Best wishes!
  8. One of the best posts describing Pitch Over Speed I've seen here in the forums! Nice work my friend. These are important concepts and operations for pilots / flight simmers to understand.
  9. Yeah, so long as the aircraft doesn't have FADEC, though I suppose it's still possible even with a computer helping out. Each engine has a different amount of wear, different amount of wear on different parts, different oil pump pressures, different N1, N2, EPR and other related pressures, and of course slightly different thrust outputs. While it's not something most flight simmers look at and therefore most developers don't bother with, there are a handful of flight sim airliners which do model this and in my opinion the one that does the best job modeling it is the Leonardo Ma
  10. Aircraft without a FADEC can work exactly the same way, though it this due to the engines rather than a flight sim controller, so for such aircraft it's fairly realistic. But to answer your question, no, there is no calibration software or procedure (other than Windows).
  11. The temp in the sim would affect this as well, not to mention winds. From what I recall neither are very accurate yet.
  12. I hate scalpers, and when I was with Honeycomb I worked very, VERY hard to ensure that scalpers of Honeycomb items was reduced as much as humanely possible. To be honest, 30% is not too much more over retail and may reflect the cost of import if the item is already in your country. The warned however that there are people pushing items that have issues, items that the user thought was too expensive to ship back for repair and they try to dump them on unsuspecting users. We had a few cases like this, and the second owner tried to have the unit repaired under warranty, which wasn't NOT going t
  13. I understand it's difficult for non-pilots who are also new flight simmers to understand this, but this is just not helpful. There are quite a few things which are taken into account when determining your reference and approach speeds, so asking an operator which speed they land at or when the retard thrust levers (thrust levers for het aircraft, throttles for props) is one of those "garbage in, garbage out" type questions and answers. The flight dynamic profiles for the Aerosoft Airbus' are pretty good, so we can rule those out for the issues you are having. If you can make a sh
  14. Whoa, there is a great video for this, and you only have to wait a few seconds to get to the part you're asking about. And, guess which aircrash it's for? Here's somehting which you may find even more helpful. People are always most welcome to post whatever questions they may have and we are always happy to answer them, ALWAYS! After all, we're all flight simmers too, and we got our start (no punn intended) just like you and everyone else in the community. That said, the Flight Simulation community has been around now for over 40 years, and the lev
  15. Rarely is there a question in flight sim that hasn't aready been asked and answered, so I found the following right here in our forum! Best wishes my friend!
