  • @Guenther it's in the FCOM: "The autofeather system provides automatically initiated propeller feathering following an engine failure during take-off, and power uptrim of the operating engine (Figure 12.22-5). Autofeather is selected on for take off…
  • Set the GPWS Landing Flap knob to 15, it's just below the gear lever. As FraPre has said, you land with props at 1020 rpm unless you have RDC NP LDG enabled. You're also suppose to have the fuel AUX PUMPS enabled, but not autofeather (which is …
  • Flight director must be off also, it's not certified for steep approach. So you do it all on raw ILS data or visual. Proud supporter of http://www.ViaIntercity.com, 950+ flights for J41 & Q400 and 200+ for A320
  • bravomike makes a good point, Q400 APU is not rated for use whilst airborne, if there's no weight on the wheels, the APU will not start. Proud supporter of http://www.ViaIntercity.com, 950+ flights for J41 & Q400 and 200+ for A320
  • Hope this isn't a silly question but.... after pressing PWR and self test completes, do you then press START? The PWR button doesn't make the APU start. Proud supporter of http://www.ViaIntercity.com, 950+ flights for J41 & Q400 and 200+ for A…
  • You need to assign a button or key to TCS. As FraPre said, you have to hold the TCS button continually whilst you're making control input. Proud supporter of http://www.ViaIntercity.com, 950+ flights for J41 & Q400 and 200+ for A320
  • PMDG been saying the P3D J41 would be "soon" 3+ years ago, we all know FS developers timelines are geological! A year isn't that bad in comparison lol. Proud supporter of http://www.ViaIntercity.com, 950+ flights for J41 & Q400 and 200+ for A3…
  • Those are fogged up windows. Turn the window heat knob to norm, it's bottom left of the overhead. There are no windows in the 2D panel, so no fog. Proud supporter of http://www.ViaIntercity.com, 950+ flights for J41 & Q400 and 200+ for A320
  • Yeah it's really odd Majestic ship the product with nav data from the time of release like every other developer... ckyliu - Proud supporter of http://www.ViaIntercity.com, 950+ flights for J41 & Q400 and 200+ for A320
  • Cheers guys, I've pulled the trigger on it and so far can't tell much difference aside from it loading photo scenery a bit faster.

  • Simbrief will export an FPR file the MJC8Q400 can read, although I think it omits SIDs/STARs. Bernd Laaß also made a converter that works with ASA RF, FSC and others at https://up2sky.dyndns.org:8443/FPRConverter/ And Intercity ACARS exports plans f…
  • By default the pilot edition starts in an odd engines off state, where it's not in a proper turnaround configuration. None the less, it's fairly straight forward to turn it all off or start it with just a few clicks. There is a long winded workaro…
  • Terrain heights. IIRC highest and lowest terrain ckyliu - Proud supporter of http://www.ViaIntercity.com, 950+ flights for J41 & Q400 and 200+ for A320
  • The tool just reads the values from DirectInput like the aircraft would. We never tested with virtualised controllers so don't offer official support for them, it's possible they don't present to DirectInput normally so the tool cannot fully detect t…
  • @Guenther TCS = touch/tacfile control steering button. It temporarily disconnects the AP and allows hand flying whilst held; in pitch and roll hold modes it also resets the target (i.e. Move thr flight director bars). Note this a Pro edition only fe…
  • SOP. You even do this in a Cessna. It's not for the autopilot, it's for you! So if you're veering odd runway heading, it's obvious. It also drives the flight director. ckyliu - Proud supporter of http://www.ViaIntercity.com, 950+ flights …
  • I have a feeling it might be the anti-skid, you'll find the switch on the far right of the glareshield. Also nosewheel steering should be ON for takeoff although I don't think that would cause the alarm to sound. ckyliu - Proud supporter of http:/…
  • You may encounter feedback problems because the aircraft is effectively slewed through the FSX/P3D visual world by Majestic's external NASA JSB flight dynamics computation. That means airspeed values, trim deflection and current deflection values you…
  • Training edition is not yet released but I believe it will be available to the general public should you need to make use of the additional functionality or cockpit build. I see no reason why the yoke wouldn't send input. I'm somewhat doubtful the…
  • I'd be very surprised if AIRAC database version had any effect on landing gear operation ckyliu - Proud supporter of http://www.ViaIntercity.com, 950+ flights for J41 & Q400 and 200+ for A320
  • I just realised the problem; you have pilot edition, 2D panel is pro edition only! The pilot edition you get some some 2D popups (such as FMS, ND, PFD etc) but no overhead, pedestal or main panel. ckyliu - Proud supporter of http://www.ViaInter…
  • I know this is going to sound silly, but have you tried pressing W a few times?
  • I studied Physics to SATII/A-Level so I know it should be mass, but the lay person and aviation operating staff always call it weight.
  • ZFW = ZFM, it's just deHavilland/Majestic nomenclature. It's Zero Fuel Weight/Mass (i.e. what the aircraft weighs including itself, passengers and cargo but excluding fuel) ckyliu - Proud supporter of http://www.ViaIntercity.com, 950+ flights for …
  • I just uninstalled the P3D v4.3 client (remember do NOT deactivate when asked), moved the P3D.cfg elsewhere, installed the new v4.4 client and then restored my settings to how they were. The content is just the F16 PBR update and scenery is just m…
  • I did a quick test circuit at night and found no issues thus far, it works fine. ckyliu - Proud supporter of http://www.ViaIntercity.com, 950+ flights for J41 & Q400 and 200+ for A320
  • The point is it physically loads the fuel, passengers and cargo. You should notice the fuel gauge changing when you "Send to flight sim". You don't have to input vague figures, there's a fuel readout at the bottom of the engine instruments. Then…
  • Could be icing build up on the engine air intakes, consider if you were in icing conditions and if you had the intake heaters on. Random failures are enabled be default but rare, so it could've also been that. You can adjust the likelihood of wear…
  • If Majestic have access to P3Dv4.4 they would be under an NDA and thus unable to say anything until after it has been released. Previously if changes have been necessary to the Dash it's usually taken a few weeks, although the last few updates to P3D…
