  1. Big thanks for all your hard work on version 1.6.5. all good and no issues to report. Looking forward to seeing what you can do with version 2
  2. I did a flight using differential engine thrust. Great challenge and treated as a nose wheel steering failure.
  3. Thanks for the continue work but I sem to have a few issues There seems to be a problem with nose wheel steering. It appears to be a free castering Aso the hydraulic pressure drops very quickly with nothing operating which causes the pump to activate every 13 seconds or so.

    Trim Issues

    I can confirm there is something not right with elevator trim indicator and dataref when the autopilot has control. They do not alter at all while the autopilot has control. When you then disconnect the autopilot because the trim is not synced up with the autopilot trim setting there is sudden jump in aircraft pitch as it adjusts to elevator pitch trim reading.
  5. I tried in OpenGL and very similar results
  6. I agree it is difficult to see and I haven't noticed it before. It does look like the wall is highly reflective. The airport is EGNX by ORBX and I am using Vulcan on the latest 11.53.
  7. There is a wall in the distance that seems to be highly reflective and reacting to the taxi light. Have attached a recording to hopefully show I'm not seeing things. Regards 1123730655_TaxilightnighttestEGNX.mp4

    Taxi Light

    Never noticed my taxi light looking so dim before. On closer inspection it seems to be lighting up the path to the right and far ahead. Have attached two screen shots of taxi light on and off. You can see the road lit and very little in front on the taxi way.
  10. This rapid ITT rise has always been present when moving from Start to MIN and from the videos I have seen it occurs in the real plane, although not as much. But I have noticed that the Torque, ITT temp and engine RPM seem to be very twitch when you move the power levers around ground and flight idle positions. My elevator trim is still not moving either when the autopilot is connected. Also I experienced my glide slope bars missing again. Not sure what I did but will see if I can repeat it.
  11. Hi, I am messing about with engine failures and talking here about engine flameouts. As I think fires, separations and fails seem to do a lot more damage in the 340 model. If I clear the failure in xplane and try an inflight engine relight there seems to be some problem. Although the engine starts and seems fine the propeller , I am assuming because it is feathered, will not spin up. I have tried starting the engine in the start and UNF positions but still the propeller remains feathered. This is of course with the power lever in the flight idle position. If I now move to ground with the
  12. I have a Saitek cessna trim wheel and if I assign the axis to the elevator trim it work with no issues.
  13. Difficult to see on the video but it looked like your Hi pressure bleed valves where closed. Not sure if this would have affected these systems The systems which require bleed are: • Wing & stabilizer inflatable boot deicing • Engine split lip & inlet guide vane anti-icing
  14. I use this fantastic addon which allows you to deice before you depart https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/forums/topic/166672-de-icing-tool/ and then this equally useful addon which pops up a diplay of any icing occuring on your aircraft. https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/50510-popup-icing-display/ These might help
