  1. Candid - I am assuming that what you are reporting as far as not having to add much power to get the plane rolling is an artifact of the turbine engine modeling that they are working to correct. Hopefully when 1.5.2 is released you will see better modeling of the engines and, as a result, power settings. As Cameron mentioned, and I think he is correct, most every bug has been found and reported in the Saab 340A support topic found here. Just search on my name and you'll see a couple I am sure! John
  2. While your finalizing 1.5.2 - any chance we could get a light bulb upgrade to the annunciator panel? Not sure how much development time this would take. Also I did read the older topics on the subject and do realize this is actually pretty true to life - but I'll give up this bit of authenticity in order to be able to read the lights! Thanks all!
  3. BetterPushback works fine with this plane although I usually am parked at a stand without a gate so maneuvering forward isn't restricted.
  4. I've never had anything like his happen with the LES team or Cameron. In my opinion it's all how you engage with folks and how you mentally react to their written word. Personally I'm thankful for their continued efforts with the 340.
  5. Nice to see that it does work - I know with X-Plane it has to be pretty heavy precipitation to show up on any planes weather radar and I haven't seen it yet.
  6. As Homer Simpon says, "D'Oh!" Genius Goran! - not sure when I moved the X-Plane radios slider to off but that was it!
  7. BetterPushback works fine except for the fact that I cannot hear the radio calls. I have all my radio sliders (COM1-3 and INT) pushed up but I cannot hear the tug driver. No biggie but if you have the secret let me know! John
  8. It looks like only the throttle quadrant viewer is able to be mapped (JGX/SAAB/POPUP/TQ_viewer/CMD/showPopUp)
  9. Ah! I have noticed that in the wing tip coverings for the nav lights as well as the beacon on the rudder fairing. Maybe something they will address in version 2.0
  10. Are you launching the cargo variant? You will see three variants passenger, cargo and airborne (early warning military version). The cargo will not have windows.
  11. Thank you sir. Excellent flight so far this morning CYUL to CYFC. Both engine starts (left then right) normal and the only surging issues happen only when the condition levers are placed above unfeathered) at ground idle.
  12. Looking through the other topics I see someone suggested that you just add 4960 lbs to whatever your real cargo load is to cover this difference. Does anyone see any fault in that logic?
  13. What has LES used as the Empty Weight for this aircraft? I am seeing from several online sources that RW empty weight varies but is often around 17615 lbs but looking in X-Plane 11.5 weight, balance and fuel screen I see the empty weight listed as 12655 lbs. Is that correct? I'm trying to configure PFPX... John
  14. Found another one! This might not appeal to everyone - I'm a former Air Force pilot so this super geeked out explanation is right up my alley!
  15. Cameron, Goran and the team: Guys - just keep your heads down and keep at it. I lead a software development team and I know the pressures of "can you give me a timeline..." You just have to have a canned answer and keep giving it so that you're not distracted/diverted into cutting corners just to keep folks quiet. You have a wonderful product that deserves your time and attention. In this age of "I want it NOW!!" it is tempting do something - even answer the same question again and again. Don't. 1.5.1 is giving me loads of enjoyment right now - looking forward to all you have in
  16. If you have the time there is a really good, although short, series of YouTube tutorials done by Sim Pilot. Here is a link to the first (cold and dark to landing):
  17. Yes - I am having the same problem as well. In flight it doesn't seem to be an issue but when doing your runup it is very evident. Would love to hear a fix for it as I don't think everyone is having the problem!!
  18. Is there any way to map the Ground/Prefight popup to the keyboard rather than moving the mouse to the lower left half of the screen? I've recently begun to use one of those wide screen monitors and in full screen mode I cannot "find" the lower left corner - I have to switch to windowed mode, set ground, ZFW, fuel, and switch back again. Having a keyboard map would be convienient!
  19. Just wanted to say thanks to Cameron for his quick ticket turn around! I entered a ticket at 7:30PM and he had it resolved the next morning by 11:00AM. That's fantastic customer service - very glad to be a X-Avaition customer! John Gniewkowski
