  1. That video is awesome, the LES (or whoever it was) guys really got the sounds right. I noticed they fire up the right engine first? Thats the side the GPU is on? I thought you were supposed to start the left engine first, and then disconnect the GPU so those guys didnt get prop blasted on the right side?
  2. Hey man So it doesnt really hold the heading... its more a 'Flight Director'? I always seem to be slowly drifting right or left of my heading with autopilot on. I try to trim the plane as best I can before putting autopilot on. Is that just how she goes with an old plane? I didnt know if mine was working right or not. Thanks! edit: This post says I need to bind an autopilot heading hold to a button to get it to work? From 2017 though. Is there no button in the cockpit? Is this cheating? @Goran_M PS. Do the carb mix levers matter? Im not sure when to a
  3. Very nice, thanks!

Here is my first custom livery for X-Plane. Calm Air International for the X-Aviation Saab 340A. I chose to paint this livery because its an airline close to home, and a fairly simple design to test my capabilities.

    Hi! Here is my first custom livery for X-Plane. Calm Air International for the X-Aviation Saab 340A.

(Painters note: I love the logo, hate the 'CalmAir' font) Presently, "All of Calmair's Saab 340s have been sold to other operators and are in the process of being replaced by ATR-42s and Dornier 328 Jets on scheduled passenger service routes." Fortunately we can still fly this simple/clean livery with our virtual Saab 340s. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calm_Air "Calm Air Int
  6. Hey man. I guess its all about setting up the FMS before you take off. Id still love to learn a big modern airliner. My cousin who got me into Xplane let me try the B777 on his setup, ended up in a nose dive.. those passenger screams will never leave me. For VoiceAttack.. it works exactly like a first officer. Im surprised at how easy this is to setup and how responsive the voice commands are. For the SAAB I have commands for air conditioning, auto coarsen, CTOT (I put the voice command as 'sea tow' lol.. you could try 'see toe'), prop sync, gears, flaps and AP disengage. I havnt even ex
  7. Hey AJ glad to see youre still around. B772 is a big plane! Hows the switch to FMS flight planning? Ive been looking into using a program called VoiceAttack.. I wonder if it could work in X-Plane. From their site 'VoiceAttack will take commands you speak into your microphone and turn them into a series of keyboard key presses and mouse actions' For flying the SAAB with so many toggle switches.. just saying stuff like prop sync off or air condition on could decrease the workflow. About tweaking.. I dont think so man lol. Maybe if X-Plane had a 1000 man team like a Call of Duty game or s
  8. Still flying the SAAB.. Been a few weeks but took her out for a spin around Lausanne..dicey approach but pulled a go around and 2nd try was on point Assetto Corsa racing simulator has been taking my time recently. Too much speed.. gotta hit the clear skies for some gentle flying. Roads? Where we're going.. we don't need roads.
  9. Hey Im still here too.. just busy as well. What kind of car did you buy? Thanks for the takeoff videos. I noticed your elevator trims are really high in the heavy weight takeoff (well compared to what I use). Im usually at the first white line at the bottom of the green arc. I found lower elevator trim helped me get more speed on the runway and a gentler rotation was required to keep speed on liftoff. I try not to pull back more than 10 degrees. I wonder what a 'normal' everyday weight setup in a SAAB 340 would be? How many passengers on avg. and how much fuel loaded per flight. Ba
  10. Yep, some good framerates for me in city areas too. Flying over Zurich with OSM and HD mesh.. no artifacts everything looks nice and running smooth. Andy10r which plane was giving you the problems?
  11. Bad experience today.. succumbed to hypoxia at 14,000 feet in the SAAB. Completely forgot how to set up the cabin pressure.. I had my landing alt set. AC was working fine. I thought it was supposed to take care of pressure automatically? My differential pressure was at 0.1 when I passed out... On a positive note I think I got my 'heavy' takeoffs on point. More flaps and a long runway is necessary it seems. When landing with heavy weight I find its also much easier to get a stable approach for landing set up. Any tips on anti-ice systems? I know I should put them on in colder weather
  12. I use HDR, but I havnt notice any red lines or anything else out of the ordinary yet. Will report if I do.
  13. Heh it was a graceful landing. SAAB swooped in, flapped its wings a bit then plopped right down
