  • I can recommend this little config tool for 125hz control setup. http://viaintercity.com/forums/bombardier-dash-8-q400-(dhc-8-402q)/majestic-q400-pro-125hz-controls-config-tool/ Make sure to remove the according axis from your P3D controls.

  • Hi, * Please provide some more information on that one. Maybe a screenshot of the ND, FMS NAV page or the name of the leaving and inbound waypoints. * The magenta line will appear 2 minutes prior TOD. You can then arm VNAV and it will automatic…
  • Hi Arturo, you will find a hotfix in the User Area (http://majesticsoftware.com/mjc8q400/support.html). This should solve your issues.
  • Andrew, Navigraph injects coordinates of waypoints, NDBs, VORs, airports etc into your Q400 FMS. You can think of it as an overlay. However, all the facilites that are actually transmitting signals (like NDBs, ILS and VORs) are stored within the…
  • Why would you need your P3D database to be up to date though? Pretty much every addon aircraft relies on its own navigation system which can be updated through Navigraph or NDP as you already mentioned. The aircraft will only use this for reference. …
  • No issues on my side yet either.

  • Hi, unfortunately there is no RTOP calculator available as far as I know. What I've been told is that for every 100 metres of additional runway margin you can reduce takeoff power by 1 % down to a minimum of 81 %. NTOP takeoffs however should always…
  • Exactly, you can set your MDA knob to your acceleration altitude, so generally Airport elevation + 1000ft (rounded up to the next 10) and use this is an indicator of when the acceleration alt is reached. As soon as you're in a clean config and Props …
  • Thats strange... This used to be a bug but with the hotfix it works fine for me.
  • @JvanE Are you sure you have the latest hotfix installed correctly?
  • I can't tell whether or not those messages appear in real life as often as they do in the sim, but a quick "MSG" and "BACK" on the FMS will get rid of it.
  • What exactly do you mean by bringing both FMS to the same cycle? Once you've downloaded the cycle both FMS are updated. Or did I missunderstand you?
  • For anything that comes before the landing runway you can basically leave or remove discontinuities as you wish, as long as it fits to what you have been cleared for. Leaving a disco in there serves as an useful hint that you have not yet been cleare…
  • Thats correct. For climbs, you would only use the GA, IAS and Pitch modes (Pitch depending on company SOP). Climbing on V/S is a strict no-no. For descents however, you would always use manual V/S or very rarely VNAV. Another reason why you wouldn'…
  • Flybe usually remove the disco after the SID, but leave the pre-STAR and pre-Trans discos in until theyre cleared for the arrival. And as another user already said, the discos behind the landing runway and the Missed Appch Proc should never be remove…
  • Hi, afaik you can just open your windows game controller settings and it should come up with a list giving away the internal order of your devices. Otherwise, you'd just have to figure it out by trying I assume.
  • Hi, how do you disconnect the autopilot? There are multiple ways to do that. I'd recommend you to set up a specific hotkey for your joystick via the ini file, this never caused any issue for me.
  • Hi, have you set the NAV SOURCE selector to FMS1 (or FMS2 in case youre on FO side)? Otherwise, you will struggle to get into LNAV mode at all.

  • Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the Q400 equipped for LNAV/VNAV approaches only? As far as I am aware, the "GS" is not functional as long as you are in FMS mode.
  • Hi, just to make sure. The electrical panel is set properly? Also, did you load in your payload via the MJC Control Panel? This causes the sim to pause.
  • PFPX is quite optimistic on the FL most of the time. But for reference you can look up the flights on Flightradar and see what level theyre usually cruising at or just take the chart I sent into consideration.
  • Hi, first off, I would recommend you to not connect any flight control axis of the Q400 through FSUIPC. Here is how I would recommend setting up your controls, it works like a charm for me: * Enable your joystick in P3D and bind your throttle t…
  • @RGomes said: By the way... what about optimal altitude? How exactly can we know, for a given configuration, weight, CG etc, what is the optimal cruising altitude? Thanks Hi, in the Q400 you would climb up to the maximum FL of 250 …
  • @Floren said: Sorry, but no way to save modified .ini file If you have problems editing your ini file, just copy it onto your desktop, edit it and put it back into the original folder, replacing the old ini. Also, seeing some of your re…
  • An aircraft indeed needs to be fitted with that particular switch to be allowed to perform steep approaches. However, I wouldn't necessarly worry about it too much, as this steep approach switch does nothing more than changing your GPWS altitude ca…
  • @DKE2018 said: There is no answer to my question ...
  • I might join in there. Go into the majestic ini file located here: C:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\SimObjects\Airplanes\mjc8q400\ini and search for "wearofffactor". The number that follows gives the relation between how often a failure w…
  • Hi Haseen, the TCS is linked throuh the addon itself. To edit the key, go to your ini file ("C:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\SimObjects\Airplanes\mjc8q400\ini"), open it and scroll all the way down until you see "[JOYSTICK_INTERFACE_ASS…
  • I'm just hoping Aurasim will rebuild their application in such a way that you could enter the runway data by yourself and do not have to use their outdated database. Shouldn't be too hard to implement, even for Aurasim.
  • Yes, exactly. Although you don't necessarly need to set it to FMS1 when trying to follow the FPL for example. The bearing selector controls the two needles on your ND and serve as an extra aid.
