    Strange position ...

    I remember seeing this if you had a taildragger loaded before a nose wheel aircraft. Had to shut down XP and start again.

    TBM 900 v1.0.5 Update Released!

    Tried removing the Terrain Radar plugin plus the FSwidgets plugins but still no change in frame rates. It has cleaned up the log text from 4.1mb to 79kb and removed all of the TBM entries. Log.txt GizmoLog.txt

    TBM 900 v1.0.5 Update Released!

    I finally got to fly the aircraft with a FPS of 25-28 and was suitably impressed. Had a generator and low volume warning for the time I was able to fly. Unfortunately after about 15 minutes the FPS dropped to 14 internal view and 17 external. I turned off the window and panel reflections an lowered antialiasing settings to FXAA with no effect.

    Activation Problem

    Hi Cameron, The problem was BitDefender an anti virus program. Had to go in via windows security to find it and create an exception. Thanks for your help

    Activation Problem

    When I open the Cessna_310L_1.0.8 the activation window opens. I enter my email and password select enter and it seems to go into an endless loop. Seems to be a database issue as per the gizmo log attached. Tried re-installing with no change. Did not happen with the previous version or any other X-Aviation aircraft. GizmoLog.txt

    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/
