  1. Captains, We're excited to announce both a project and release date here in one evening. In a few short hours (Saturday, Midnight Eastern Daylight Time) we will be releasing the classic Fairchild PT-19! As a launch day special the aircraft will be discounted 17% for the first 72 hours only! Product page is here and released! It's a popular World War II primary trainer aircraft that's perfect to get your VFR flying and aircraft operation skills tested! Don't let this simple looking aircraft fool you. It's packed with features, including a mechanical wear down of the eng

  2. Or you could revisit your respect. You sent two support tickets. How long ago? 1 hour and another 2 minutes later. Then you make this topic 15 minutes later. I don't take kindly to you acting like a child in an outrage that he hasn't received a reply in an hour but trying to make others think he's been waiting for days, months, years. I would help you right now (because this is a really simple issue), but I think you need to learn patience. Because of your treatment of this situation, expect a reply in 3 days as the contact page states. Want to be an @ss? You'll be treated lik

  3. This time I will talk about the project status, and how we are moving forward. I will not give specific ETA! They only thing I can say is that this my daily and only focus. Goran’s job is almost finished, and the project is on my shoulders! So, ETA will be as soon as possible will be ready! The “general status” of the aircraft at this point is that is operational, you can do flight from cold and dark, VFR and IFR flights with the use of the 2 VORs and 2 ADFs, use the simplified autopilot we talked last time. Some of the systems are done, most of them are in progress. There are no systems

  4. Thank you both for your answers. I will try out the update as soon as possible. Btw... @Uncle Jack Simulations, you created one of the best addons available for X-Plane. Looking forward to the future of your project.

  5. Hey folks! I knew you online pilots out there would ask for some kind of transponder / radio. There are lots of modified PT-19s, and even full PT19 conversions of other models, like the more advanced PT26. I believe it would be more enjoyable to have a historically accurate version of the bird resting in our hangars, and i tried my best to commit to this vision when developing it, but rest assured i'm planning something that may satisfy your needs. It is my intention to release an expansion for the PT-26 and even the PT-23 (radial) aircraft, and those do have an electrical system among t

  8. Hello All, This will serve as a formal forum announcement that we have released the version 1.0.2 update for the PT-19. All customers who have purchased the PT-19 up till now have been sent an e-mail by X-Aviation with complete instructions on how to obtain your update. We have made this a very simple process! For those that purchase the PT-19 from today forward, your purchased download will already be updated to version 1.0.2 for you. What if I didn't get the update e-mail? If you did not receive your update e-mail don't fret! X-Aviation has updated our system to allow all customer

  10. The uninstall and re-install process will preserve your settings. Therefore, when updating everything should be back to where it was before without you needing to do anything or save any files.

  11. EDIT** Read Cam's post below! Disregard this Hey burningbee!! Yes, you will start "fresh". Try backing up the file "states.dat" that is located on the aircraft's root folder, and save it somewhere safe. After the update, you can paste this file back in and it should have your data there! The way the aircraft loads and saves data has been slightly changed in this update, so if you have any issues with doing that, then just delete the file altogether and you'll be fine. Hope this helps! Respectfully, Dan.

  13. Thank you for the info. that you will give us a PT19B! As I said above, I am perfectly happy to tinker with and just bimble around in the original version, because there are no distractions! However, I would like to do some online work in this wonderful plane, now and again, which is why I asked for the facility. No chance of doing 1941 on PE - don't worry

  14. Hey ph-kim! Just seen your threads and rest assured i'll assess all of them shortly Chocks, Jacks, Individual Toe-brakes and the parking brake handle are all at play when the subject is keeping the aircraft from moving. For this reason, since manuals state that the parking brake interacts directly with the toe brakes through the master cylinder, i decided to simulate this mechanical link they have. X-plane's default parking brake system is a bit wonky at best, and i did experiment using it with the parking brake lever. The thing is, if a user has the "Apply regular brakes" command issued,

  15. Why should I "protect" you and your terrible behavior? I am absolutely not going to pretend like you're this awesome person who deserves respect when you come at me or my business the way you did. If you're not learning anything, then that's on you, but something tells me by your editing of comments and suddenly being "fair" (if that's what you want to call your edits), you are learning something. And, that is...I won't put up with you being a total ass of a person. Treat others how you want to be treated. I shouldn't have to educate you on being a decent human with manners. Don't even bo

  16. Sucks being treated how you treat others, doesn't it? Think ahead next time. This is a good life lesson for you, because apparently you haven't yet learned that people don't need to put up with your indecent behavior. You may not have expected it, but rest assured my toleration for it is non-existent. And, guess what? You sent in ANOTHER support ticket two hours ago after already being warned. That's another 3 days added to your reply time from 2 hours ago. You'll learn...one day. The alternative would have just been you being respectful and already have received a reply. I hop

  17. That plane with the Norwegian livery I see very often as it´s is based at ENKJ "Kjeller". Kjeller was Norways first airport with it´s first takeoff on the 21 of september 1912. It´s still operated. The yellow and blue livery was a signal that it was a traineeaircraft.

  18. Yes during taxi differential braking is the only means to steer. The TS SR22 steering is very close to what I experience in a real SR22. On departure the rudder will help steering once you have some speed before rotation. This plane offers a very real experience. WRS

  19. Hi, any news on the 1.5.2 Update for this Airplane? Its about a year now, when this Update was announced to fix the "low bank angle on turns" issue. Or can you provide just a simple fix for this? Flying online with such a turn rate is not the best you can do. Cheers, Michael

  24. No, this is not possible. In addition, I have absolutely no idea why either of these aircraft would perform "better" over the other. In the case of the PT-19 especially, there was absolutely NOTHING done to affect any kind of performance.

  25. WebFMC dev here. This is a single instance where we call XPLMDebugString() from a background thread during early startup. No other calls to XP API are made from threads ever. If this log access was ever an issue, I'm sure we would have known already after ~3 years of the plugin existence (plus, it would crash very early, even before aircraft is loaded). Anyway, since Laminar's guidance on threading-safety is pretty clear, I'll eliminate this case in the next update of WebFMC, to be on the safe side. Anyway, I'm glad the issue has apparently been resolved. And the cockpit with 2 FMC displa

  26. I believe I have come up with a solution that will at least work for now. I changed over to Vulkan and started X Plane 11. I then changed TerraMaxx to each of the settings (Auto, Summer, Autumn, Mid Winter, Deep Winter) exiting X Plane after each change since TerraMaxx does not update the settings.dat file unless X Plane is exited. I then copied each of the individual settings.dat files to separate folders, one for each setting. Then I changed the properties of each of those files to make them read only. I then changed over to OpenGL and started X Plane 11. TerraMaxx now retains the

  27. Sorry for my noisy posting yesterday, my eagerness got ahead of me and I did some bad testing. Right after I made my last post I crashed yesterday after I had completed several touch and gos, which had not happened before, so I started testing everything a bit longer to see what would happen. After a few slightly more involved tests, I am starting to become convinced again that it might be the 3jFPS FlyWithLua script after all. I was doing kind of a binary search with enabling plugins yesterday to quickly narrow it down, and I was pretty sure it was either autogate, the simtoolkitpro plug

  28. @giaco Oh. As you said you had the same issue, I thought you were also on a Mac! I'm amazed that your very highly specified PC is only seeing 30 fps. However, you are in VR, and that's not an option on Macs yet. I'm sure that the VR setup slows things down - doesn't it? @Cameron Yes. I also think it's a GPU issue, mainly. It's largely the amount of VRAM, but will also be a driver issue. I'm now (at last) running a 2020 iMac (27"), with the Radeon Pro 5700 XT 16GB graphics card, and all my slide-show issues have gone! It will run Coop's Cirrus at 60 fps in Metal, and the PT-19 i

  29. Regardless of the elevator trim setting, the trim tab position is always asymmetrical. I haven't been able to find much information about it specific to the PT-19, but in general, it looks a bit counterintuitive. Also, the elevator trim tabs are never in a completely 'neutral' position. The only thing that I could find if from the Erection and Maintenance instructions that specifies the range of movement for the elevator trim tabs:

  30. Hey there ph-kim! While i tried my best to faithfully reproduce all the mechanics and quirks of the PT-19 as i possibly could, some things may still be a bit "off" here and there. I'll look further and try to dig more information on these rudder pedal cams. As for your other suggestion - yes, this is exactly how i'm attempting to solve this for the next update Respectfully, Dan.

  35. Just dropped the alpilotx NZ Scenery into x-plane so as a test I did my usual scenic milk run (with CAVOK weather because real weather is absolutely pants down there right now) from NZQN across the Alps then up the West Coast to where ever I happen to be when I run out of caffeine. Today it was just south of NZGM so that was where I landed. Decent enough landing but awful taxiing, I got a bit carried away with the beta when I was parking and ended up going backwards, and when I realised I instinctively used the brakes. Doh. Weirdly, even though the prop stopped when the plane tipped back the e

  38. We wanted to implement it, but then we saw that the new Microsoft Flight Simulator has no opening doors on aircraft, and since everyone says that that is a much better program than X-Plane we have not done the opening doors, because we want to be more like them! Cheers, Jan

  39. @CameronI have not been bickering at any point. I have only been seeking solutions. I will accept your dismissal of my issue, and will only leave you with this thought: I have not been trying to scam anyone and have only been looking for a solution to a problem I have with your product. I am a reasonable and loyal customer, and have already proved that I am willing to do repeat business with you as I purchased the G5 set since this issue began. I have had issues with Carenado products in the past, and twice they have not hesitated to refund my money immediately. I will purchase from them again

  40. Found the issue with the Localizers. X-Plane 11.50b10 changed one element of the localizer nav data encoding (bearing), which broke the custom localizer simulation code in the TBM. Compatibility workaround will be included in the next TBM update.

  43. Sorry guys. I know that this plane was very advanced for it's time. But now it's simply neglected and badly hurt by xp patches. It's not only about the bank angle but also about the totally crazy engine behavior. It doesn't also help that it lacks a lot of sounds that are the standard now, especially for planes in this price range. I wonder if it takes that long because it's simply very old code with a lot of custom systems. Version 2.0 was supposed to make it a great contender again, but it's kind of an excuse now for 2 years to not do anything more significant on this plane. And it's h
