    Power levers constantly walk forward

    I think I have posted this everywhere at some time, but it works and seems to be essential with windows 10. Go to this site "uraster.com/de-ch/produkte/usbenhancedpowermanagerdisabler.aspx" and download the usbenhancedpowermanagerdisabler. Install and run as administrator. I also check in control panel/system/device manager/human interface devices that under power management the "allow the computer to turnoff this device to save power" IS NOT selected. Do this for all items. You definitely need to download and install the latest madcatz 64bit drivers at "http://www.saitek.com/uk/down/drivers.php". If you are using the usb ports on the yoke you will also need a power supply for the yoke. The switch panel and the Radio panel do not like being on a fully populated 10 port powered usb hub. I am running them on another hub with only 3 ports used and it gives no problems. Last step is to go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options\Edit Plan Settings\change advanced power settings\USB Settings\USB Selective suspend setting and make sure it is disabled. You should also install https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/14646-xsaitekpanels-linwinmac3264/ but make sure that you do the installation as per the instructions If the problem is with the Mac OS then I have no idea of what to do.

    Bug Report

    Please don't remove the window reflections as that is what windows really do. The option to toggle them on or off would be great. Thanks for a marvelous aircraft. I think it is the most iconic Cessna twin made to have the original avionics and analogue gauges is awesome.

    P.180 Avanti II - Support

    Disregard my last. I found the click spot.

    P.180 Avanti II - Support

    Is it possible to hide the yoke on the current aircraft. If not will this option be incorporated in the next update.

    Nice to have

    Value for money the LES DC-3 has probably been the best investment I have made in the last 3 versions of X-plane. For $60.00 I have flown for more than 1200 hours so it works out at about $1.00 for 20 hours. Impossible to get better value per dollar than that. I have made a couple of plane maker changes to the view points to suit my own needs. I also changed the landing gear drag coefficients, which has been used by many other users, to make taxying easier on grass, dirt and gravel. All of these mods have made the aircraft a joy to fly in XP 9, 10 and 11.. I will purchase the V2.00 update as soon as it is available as the LES DC-3 is the only one in X-Plane worth buying. I wish I could say the same for all of the other aircraft I have purchased from other designers. Thanks for a great aircraft.

    DC-3 in X-plane 11

    I took it for a flight last night and it runs perfectly. I think that it actually runs better in XP11 r1.02 than in XP 10.

    DC-3 in X-plane 11

    If you look in the org downloads there are some EPOCH liveries for the DC3. These reduce the number of scratches and the instruments are very easy to read. http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/36608-epoch-alaska-air-for-les-dc-3/ for XP10 http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/36619-epoch-alaska-air-for-les-dc-3-in-xp11/

    DC3 & XPlane11?

    I just completed a 250 mile flight and everything worked perfectly. Better frame rates than I achieved in XP10.

    MU-2 and XP11

    I've been flying the MU-2 in XP11.b3 with no issues so far.

    DC-3 in X-plane 11

    Thanks. I hope it doesn't cause to much work and keep you away from other projects. Will be great to be able to use the old favourites in XP 11.

    DC-3 in X-plane 11

    Tried the DC-3 in X-plane 11 today. Everything seems to work except the ASIs which do not move at all. The tail wheel steering seems a bit erratic. Hope the ASIs can be fixed as this is still the only DC-3 in X-plane that is worth flying. Regards Ian Diss

    XP 10.04.2 Crash after Saab 340 update

    Thanks I just discovered the problem. Works fine with beta 3.
  13. This may only be a coincidence. I installed the update and ran XP with the Saab last night. When I tried to start XP this morning it crashes. Log.txt attached Log.txt

    HD Mesh Scenery v3 - Himalaya released!

    Thanks for this additional superb scenery. I noticed a problem with VNRC while enroute VNKT to VNLK. It's sitting on a rather large plateau rather than in a valley. Screen Shots and log.txt attached Log.txt
