  3. Since writing this inquiry, it has become clear that the mini devices recognize and reflect the state of the aircraft at the time of loading the flight in XPlane. I have had no issues over 5-6 flights. So it's clear that I do not need to do anything at flight startup. Looks like all is working very well. Very nice product, which significantly reduces panning around in the sim view in the Challenger 650 which requires a lot of pilot actions during certain phases of flight. I do still have the question regarding MSFS, although Spad.next should be able to handle that (am already using it with other devices like RealSimGear (w/ MSFS).
  4. Hello, I have XMidiCtrl working with a pair of x-touch mini's, and the Challenger 650 (courtesy of the @VictoryAJ customization to your CL60 profile. My question is what is the best practice for when XPlane (12) is started up into a new flight (CL60), in terms of how the plane is configured (airframe setting such as "ready to taxi"), and what the settings are on the mini (which could be those from when the last flight ended)? Do I need to manually set the buttons according to the CL60 airframe settings at the start of the flight (e.g. to match)? Quite excited about how this addition to my sim is going to enable me to go to the next level with no PM (FO) assisted actions. Very cool what you have done to help integrate this into XPlane. As you can see, I have a flexible stand (with a 4 lb weight on its base) and a little clamp on light that creates a great experience. Final question: do you have a plug-in of this nature for MSFS?
  5. Please refer to the commercial Vendors/Torquesim/AFM thread. Gerneral Discussion there is a timeline for the Mooney M20R.
  6. I had the pay version and in Xplane 12 when connect the Battery and APU all screens are black with noting information in the displays and the Pop Up screens vannised.
  7. Thank you for the information. Spent more than 100$ and the beautiful plane is standing in the hangar with "damage". I have no luck either.
  8. I'm experiencing a 45 FPS loss and a LOT of stuttering ONLY when I turn the lower HSI on, and it's especially noticeable while in VR. If I only have the upper PFD on, everything is silky smooth. I'm using the Cessna 172 that comes with it with no other plugins. My system specs: i913900k, 4090, 32 GB. I have extremely good performance otherwise (230 FPS with C172 G5 outside of VR and 90 FPS in HP Reverb G2). Oddly enough, even though my FPS is extremely high, the HSI still causes significant stutters. Is a solution in the works? Thank you

  10. Once LR and/or AMD fix their driver bugs, Zink will be supported in the next version of the Challenger (V1.8; a beta of which is available via the Hot Start Discord). Unfortunately there’s nothing else to be done in the meantime.
  11. I get a warning when loading SR 22 G1000 Aircraft/X-Aviation/SR22 Series/TorqueSimSR22/fmod/SR22.snd Sim/flightmodel/failure/prop_ice event:/IVS/Prop_ICEVID
  12. If I only knew that earlier... I've just meticulously tested all combinations of plugins, gamemode and mangohud until I arrived at the DataRefTool for a probable cause of my CTDs... Just when I wanted to post about it I found this thread. Could this be added to the documentation in a kind of install guide to help others? (Linux, XP 12.04r3, Nvidia RTX 3060)
  13. Yes, I checked my lua script. I had a problem with too datatref and using "writable ". Only with regard to this: "xscenery/mu2b60/manips/ap_pitch_trim_wheel" But the symptoms are similar. I gave up on "writable " and replaced it with "set" in lua as well.
  14. i tried something else. if I use the lua "set" function instead of the dataref(...,"writable") function to update dataref "xscenery/mu2b60/manips/ap_turn_knob" or "xscenery/mu2b60/manips/ap_pitch_trim_wheel", then the autopilot is OK it's strange ...
  15. Hi, I think i have found the problem. I use Lua script to simulate the ap turn knob. for this I use the dataref "xscenery/mu2b60/manips/ap_turn_knob". if i use dataref("xspr_df_mu2_ap_turn_knob", "xscenery/mu2b60/manips/ap_turn_knob", "writable") then AP is KO. the AP button annunciator is illuminated but auto pilot does not work. if I don't use the dataref "xscenery/mu2b60/manips/ap_turn_knob" writable, autopilot work correctly. I noticed that if AP HDG is enabled, and if I use AP turn knob then HDG is automatically disabled. I can't use the autopilot until the AP TURN KNOB is centered at 0. All autopilot is disabled (ALT SEL climb, HDG, VS, ...) if the value xscenery/mu2b60/manips/ap_turn_knob is not 0. So I think using the dataref("xscenery/mu2b60/manips/ap_turn_knob","writable") consider permanently using the AP TURN KNOB and disabling the autopilot Nicolas
  16. so simple? but what do I do now with the FPS? My CPU (AMD Ryzen 9) and GPU (RX 7900XT with 20GB) is not soooo bad but without ZINK it is really no fun to play.
  17. I bought and installed the Challenger 650 today. In the cockpit and in the "Ground Handling Request" the labeling is displayed one part horizontally and one part mirror-inverted vertically. Does anyone here know advice?
  18. What seems to be causing all these random, for no good reason crashing of X-Plane is not X-Plane or the Challenger. I was getting this in my Event Viewer log: "The description for Event ID 0 from source nvlddmkm cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer. If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event. The following information was included with the event: \Device\Video3 Error occurred on GPUID: 100 The message resource is present but the message was not found in the message table" This is a Nvidia issue and has been affecting people playing many other other games, all types of video cards, Win 10 and 11, and has been going on for many months. One poster on Reddit suggested running Nvidia Control Panel in "Debug" mode. That's what I've been doing and have had ZERO crashes with the Challenger and my frame rates are UP in the mid 30's to mid 40's. I've had X-Plane running all day with no problems. With "Debug" mode de-selected the X-Plane / Challenger crashes within the first 5 minutes.
  19. Picky is what made it excellent. Looking forward to the updates.
  20. Ok, to get back on topic. I have been flying my C90B by Carenado. The aircraft flying very nice, but not frame rate friendly for my 6 year old computer. I have had to turn down the graphics in xp11. Summer time is coming!! Back to Alaska where the flying is great!
  21. I know and X-Aviation is going to stop selling it when torquesim comes out with the new one for xp12. Oh well. I have other aircraft I am looking to buy for xp11. I have no plans right now to buy xp12. I am not seeing a lot of aircraft for xp12 that I am interested in flying. And I am have no interest in flying the big passenger jets or jet aircraft period. I have said I am going to wait a year or two before buying xp12, but I start seeing aircraft on the market for xp12 that I am interested in, I may change my mind. What I am seeing right now, Companies are making a lot of money making aircraft for MSFS2020. Areosoft, Just Flight are heavy into MSFS2020 and have not come out with any aircraft for xp12. Now, Thranda have come out with a couple aircraft that will work in both xp11 and xp12. One reason I joined the forum is to help me keep track of the aircraft market for xp. And I watch other companies mentioned above also. I love flight simulation, this my passion and what I want to do all day, everyday. Without being overweight or obese. LOL

    Plans for FS2020

    I still wished there was a good SR20 simulation on MSFS2020. The area/landscape is so much more authentic on MSFS2020 than on X-Plane 12, especially around my area in Germany. I also have problems with VR on it… switching to VR always begins with a view as I was sitting above/outside of the plane. I could not find out why this always happens when starting the VR mode on X-plane. But the SR22 coming with the MSFS2020 package has too many issues with the rudders, perspective plus functionality, etc. I am sure many people would buy a mod for MSFS2020 when available
  23. I'd not heard of Rumble. I did, however, create an account. I can see not harm in adding my videos to the platform along with YouTube. I have not had an issue with censorship on YT, though - except for the occasional copyright violation. At the risk of going off-topic, a lot is happening with the internet at the moment. I've been poking around in some of the AI generation tools, like ChatGPT and Dall-e. I'm impressed. I write newsletter content for my EAA chapter and the AI tools will certainly save me some time. Anyhoo, one of those Mooney collections won't be upgraded to XP12. I believe it is the M20 collection, which I own. However, I seem to recall that a newer XP12 collection is in the works. So unless you plan to fly XP11 for years to come, I'd suggest waiting a bit. I gotta run, but if I can located the blurb I'll post it for you.
  24. Bummer. Ok, I am not buying xp12. I am going to wait a year or two for LR to work out the bugs, and see more third party aircraft for sale. So if the M20R is still available this summer, I will buy it. If not oh well, I have my eye on the Thranda Kodiak, C206, or the C208 also. This is a crying shame! Thanks for the info, Cameron.
  25. No. The new M20R will essentially be an evolution of the old, so it will be removed from sale.
