  1. It would be great if you could fully integrate the Reality XP GTN750 as Carenado have done as an option in a number of their new aircraft. It has so many great features and does not take up a lot of panel space. The other nice thing is it can be run on a totally separate screen. I use Duet which allows my Ipad to run as a separate windows screen and put the 750 on that sitting on top of the Yoke.
  2. Fair enough. Still might cause some confusion for those updating from the old version. I assumed the installer would remove ALL the old files. Great work anyway. thanks for all the time and effort you have put in.
  3. Looking forward to getting back in the air, Just a small note of confusion, you have 2 sets of docs in the new download! The problem is the first one I opened (MU2 Docs) contained the old pilots manual. its only when I hunted around I found the new one in a separate docs folder.. It might be worth taking the old one out and putting the new one in with the other docs so as not to confuse new comers to this update. Cheers Rob

    Garmin G530

    FIXED...Solved the split GPS key issue by lowering my texture quality setting one level from max. Interesting as all the other instruments look perfect on max. The GPS power problem was operator error! I run Saitek panels which I use for flaps and gear. Non of the other switches on the panel work EXCEPT found I need to turn on the battery and Avionics switches to get the GPS to power up to full running condition. It will go through power up procedure till you have to press enter key but nothing after that unless the switches are on. Also the keys on the pop-out GPS work perfectly! I run a standard 1920x1080 27" monitor as a windowed screen and resetting made no difference at all. Only reducing quality settings from max. Thanks for your suggestions and help. Superb backup for a super plane.

    Garmin G530

    The same issue for me. The keys to the GPS530 don't even display properly since updating to 11.2. The enter key appears split in half on the panel, though the keys to the popout look ok they don't move at all.

    Weird autopilot behavior

    If you move the condition levers past their “Max” position to their very fwd position you will get an warning as you accelerate. That would be my guess.

    XP10 nose wheel and rudder fault when switching from saab 340.

    Don’t know why your rudder is reversed but you have to activate the nose wheel steering every time you fly the plane and every time you land. There is a big knob on the left side on the pilots console near the radio volume controls you need to push down. It is a feature of the real aircraft to!

    Version 2 Request

    Just been reading the latest Saab 340 brochure. Sooooo any chance of a Saab 340bPlus-WT.. Bigger engines, higher performance and enhanced short field capabilities. Sounds like a beast and the version several military units are going with....please Then there is the corporate interior and the maritime surveillance version hmmmm. Well just asking! Will be very happy to pay extra monies for version 2 either way.

    G530 sids and stars

    Very sorry but I assumed in my initial reply you were on XP11 as you did not specify. I have been using XP11 for so long I forgot XP10 did not support SIDS and STARS

    Cant set course for GPS.

    If you wish to fly a series of waypoints do not put the GPS in OBS mode. It should be GPS only and NAV in the autopilot control. From the GPS530 manual that you can down load online:OBS Key – Used to select manual or automatic sequencing of waypoints. Pressing the OBS Key selects OBS mode, which retains the current ‘active to’ waypoint as the navigation reference even after passing the waypoint (i.e., prevents sequencing to the next waypoint). Pressing the OBS Key again returns the unit to normal operation, with automatic sequencing of waypoints. When OBS mode is selected, the pilot may set the desired course to/from a waypoint using the Select OBS Course pop-up window, or an external OBS selector on the HSI or CDI. I hope that explains it for you...it took a while for me to realise and fix to!

    G530 sids and stars

    SIDS and STARS are supported. You find them by pushing the procedures key on the GPS. The important thing is to make sure you have the Nav data installed and upto date. Also not all airports have procedures. I have a Navigraph subscription and it works fine though you occasionally get an airport they miss putting procedures in for. Usually smaller regional airports. Go to an airport you know has sids and stars. Load in a flight plan then push procedures key. There will be a menus with departures plus approach and arrival pages for your destination.. Hope that helps.
  12. Thank you for all your hard work fixing this. Really looking forward to getting the best out of this plane and being able to fly it with all the proper power setting.

    MU-2 throttle problem.

    Further to my original post I took the time to do a couple of tests with and without Saitek throttle and yoke connected. Interestingly if the computer was booted without them connected the throttle quadrant on the MU worked fine with the mouse but when it was reconnected the throttle quadrant could only be moved be moved with the Saitek quadrant and it was impossible to select ground idle. (All other functions are working perfectly with mouse or Saitek). Note my Saitek yoke has the Leo Bodnar PCB installed for pitch and roll but this combo works perfectly with every other aircraft I have including the LES SAAB 340a. Please find my log file attached. Many thanks. GizmoLog.txt Log.txt

    MU-2 throttle problem.

    Ah now I get it! Thanks, that is a work around I had not thought of, I will give it a go next time I go flying.

    MU-2 throttle problem.

    Yes I can get full reverse with my Saitek throttle using a button but it is absolutely impossible to select flight idle which has a fine beta pitch. It all makes the plane less realistic to fly. Judging from the comments here it is not an isolated problem just from a bug in my X-Plane install but a problem that needs a patch from the developer so this otherwise excellent plane works correctly in all aspects.
