  1. IXEG 733 landing at ENBR - Bad weather

    I always thinking of what a helicopter pilot once said. "If you are in doubt, there is no doubt". I probably should had followed his advice on this landing attempt METAR: 151550Z 15021G31KT 9999 VCSH SCT020 BKN030 04/M01 Q0981 NOSIG RMK WIND 1200FT 13052G67KT
  2. Announcing the Socata TBM 900!

    Looking forward to this powerfull bird and for the release. There is a lot of good videos on youtube. i.e. steveo1kinevo (TBM850) And found this interesting video regarding the startup up of the TBM 900 with battery and with GPU.
  3. IXEG 737 XP11 Realistic FOV?

    FOV depends on your monitor size, resolution and aspect ratio. For my 34" UltraWide 21:9 I use FOV setting 95.
  4. LNAV and Direct to

    Hello I dont know if this is a feature that can be improved or if it is a normal behaviour. But when using "Direct To" to a waypoint with a certain angle, the aircraft have to make 2-3 turns to get on right course when using LNAV. As you can see on my painting. The black line is the route and the red line is the aircraft path. Should this be expected?
  5. Announcing TerraMaxx - Seasons for X-Plane!

    Very interesting, looking forward to the release. Will be nice to add some winter to X-Plane.
  6. The instruments reflections was really awesome.. Great update
  7. FMC route planing mistakes

    I have also noticed strange issues at ENGM if you dont do it in the "correct" order. Do it this way. STAR-RUNWAY-TRANSITION. Have you been in UUEE (Moscow)? .. I just gave up find the correct STAR and transitions. Its a mayhem..
  8. FMC-Freezing Bug

    He is using MAC so must be something else or a other antivirus program that are doing this
  9. IXEG 733 landing at ENBR - Bad weather

    Thanks i guess.. Im not so proud of my landing. Im more impressed that the autopilot handle the bad weather so well.
  10. X plane pc build help !

    I would also add a thing. 240GB SSD will fill up pretty fast if your planning to add photoscenery/mesh and other scenery. You will also need to have your OS and other programs you install on that disk. So I would recommend you to buy a bigger disk or a additional disk that you can use for your X-Plane installation. I recommend SSD, but it is very expensive.
  11. Take-Off Flaps setting

    I guess that is the different between real pilots and simmers. When real pilots are doing safe takeoffs from proper airports, the simmers are often testing the limits and taking off from 1100m GA airports So flaps 15 are needed (and working)
  12. Take-Off Flaps setting

    flaps 15 for takeoff is also valid right ? 1, 5 and 15.
  13. Two of the devs gave positiv reputation to the script.. So I dont see any reason for them to remove the script.
  14. As Jan and Morten just told in another post, it aint any set values for this on the 733. It depends on the configuration by the airline. But Jan also told they used following weights for his airline. So that is a good start. Jan's numbers: Max Taxiweight: 57830 kg - 127 493 lb Max Takeoffweight: 57600 kg - 126 986 lb Max Landingweight: 52600 kg - 115 963 lb Max Zerofuelweight: 49450 kg - 109 018 lb DOW: 32 831 kg - 72380 lb (From the aircraft model file) Max Fuel: 16085 kg - 35 461 lb (Max fuel you can set in X-Plane for this aircraft)
  15. Aircraft Specifics

    This is what I use. I belive it should be reasonably correct In kg.. In lb..
  16. 733 long haul

    Hi all.. Today I decided to do a long haul with the lovely 737-300. I dont do long haul that often since I prefer shorter flights, but wanted to push the limits with this bird. The flight was from Las Vegas (KLAS) to Honolulu (PHNL). Route distance is 2469nm and the flight was estimated to take 6h25min, with a average headwind of 34knots. I really had to kick out some passengers to be able to do this flight. So the ZFW was only 38.4 tons and with 16 tons of fuel. Flightplan: As you can see I planned with CI 0 to get the max range. The cruise level was FL360. (Step climb at HEC) Planning tool is PFPX. 4h30m into the flight. Soon top of descent. Finally see some land And at the gate. I landed safely on 08L PHNL after 6h30m with 2.4 tons of fuel left. Just as planned. The fuel usage was spot on all the flight. Always interesting to see for every waypoint you pass if you are ahead or behind on fuel. But no supprises today From vataware: https://vataware.com/flight/59883dfd5352336271000002 What is your longest flight with this bird ?
  17. 733 long haul

    Hi, I just use PFPX for planning and then enter the route manually.
  18. Thinking of buying...

    I have alot of aircrafts in my X-Plane hangar. But the IXEG 737-300 is always the aircraft I return to. "Bobby" is a joy to fly even with some VNAV limitation on complex arrivals as Litjan as mentioning. But you can solve that with using LVL CHG or V/S. <3
  19. No more mouse handle in 11.10

    I think it is a XP issue. Try to click on the view menu, but dont select anything, and click back in the cockpit again. That normally solves it.
  20. AutoSave for the IXEG 733

    Hello folks. What is the most frustrating part with X-Plane? For me it is when Im ~2 hours into the flight, at top of descent, checking maps, weather, atis, etc... and suddenly... KABOOM, X-Plane crashes.. That is happening time to time. A reason for a crash to desktop is often hard to know. It could be conflicting plugins, bad scenery etc.. Or just something simple as a power outage. So in this frustration I have made a LUA script that are Auto Saving the situation every 10 minutes (or what I set it to). And it keeps a history of 10 savings. It is using the X-Plane's built in sytem for saving and loading situations, but im trying to customize it for the IXEG 733. I made this for personal use. But if this is something that are interessting for you guys, I could maybe make a release of it. What do you think ? Here is a quick and dirty demo how it is working at the moment.
  21. Laminar Research are soon gonna release version 11.10 for beta-testing. 11.10 is the first major release since the initial release. There is a good post about the beta at the x-plane developer site. And you really should read that post if you are planning to participate in the beta. So expect it to be unstable and buggy, especially for the first few beta releases. http://developer.x-plane.com/2017/10/beta-testing-101/

    Just re-enter the ORIGIN airport.
