  1. I'm loving this airplane but I do wish the popout Garmins would remember the last position and size I set them at. When I fly IFR, I like to pop out both G1000s and position them side by side along the bottom so my old eyes can see them better. If I close them and pop them back out, they are big again and off in random positions. Can I get this in the pipeline for a future release please? Thanks so much!! -mark
  2. I taxi this thing like I used to drive my old 1960 Chevy... 1500-1600rpm and just burn up the brakes. Scared to death to drop below that else it will stall!
  3. Ok, Ok, Ok! I got this! Stand back!! The truth is halfway between Lon and Attitude. I tried using the checklist Lon posted (from the real SR22 btw!) and took his advice to drop my throttle back a little from where I was setting it. It cranked 10-15 seconds and STARTED!! Then I followed Attitude's advice, replacing step 3 with on "On the 'R'" and it started up IMMEDIATELY! I tried it several more times just to make sure I didn't just get lucky and it worked EVERY time! So, the checklist as I have edited it above is the GOSPEL ACCORDING TO TORQUESIM! Forget the REAL check

  5. Lon, Yes, R1 is the most recent beta. It should have been named RC1 but I guess in their haste to get in and out before the Giant arrived, they didn't have time for the 'c'. I don't know what's going on. Once I learned to start this thing back when it first came out, I had no trouble starting it either. It's only been in the last couple of days that I have had major trouble. In fact, after all the interaction with Goofy on this, just this afternoon I got so frustrated that I finally just gave up. I thought menu->RESET should reset the plane to as if it has never been use
  6. Sorry Goofy, I didn't make myself clear earlier. I was leaving the Fuel Pump on BOOST before using the plugin menu->PRIME and that was the problem. I am now setting that to OFF before I prime and that seems to be working better. Because this process is so ridiculous, I am working on a Lua script to start the plane. It first RESETs the plane and follows your process. I really hate to do this but I am so disgusted with struggling with this that I'm hoping this will make me want to fly this airplane. Thanks again for your help! -mark
  7. Thanks Jean-Pierre, I did notice I had more luck using the menu-prime. One difference is I had the Fuel Pump on Boost rather than Off as you say. I'll try that. I still don't understand why I have suddenly started having so much trouble. It's really silly that this plane is this hard to start! I really love it once I finally get it started but since it is so much trouble, I usually talk mysyelf out of flying it. It's a shame really.
  8. I don't know if it is 11.50R1 that is causing this. I am having a devil of a time starting this plane. Never really had trouble except at first when I was first learning it. Now, it absolutely won't start. I've been struggling almost an hour, rebooting, reloading, menu->RESET, menu->PRIME, coldstart, hotstart, floodstart, repeat. I finally got it started and it died on the way to the runway. I had it leaned for taxi and was trying to keep the rpms over 1000 but sometimes you accidentally pull back and it dies. This is really frustrating. I don't know why (since XP
  9. Thank you! I use xchecklist myself. This will save me the effort!
  10. This works good for me. I always use linear curves and to lessen the sensitivity at the top, I keep the curve fairly low until the right portion where I let it go to full deflection. Hope this works for you. I've tried lots of ways of doing this but I like this the best
  11. I'm seeing this too. I think it's body parts from the front seat passenger floating around. I don't think I see this if I don't have a passenger. Can't be sure of that though.
  12. I have found the mixture control to be extremely sensitive with this model. Setting a Linear response curve for the throttle (one-to-one) helps a lot. Understandably the further you go LOP, the more sensitive it gets. I experimented with setting my response curve less sensitive (parabolic) in this area but it didn't seem to help. Settling on a linear curve seems to work best for me.
  13. If you want to learn to fly the 22 properly, you can do no better than these videos. Tim does a fantastic job of describing pretty much all the features of this great product. Thank you Tim! In this one, Tim covers how to use the oxygen system and other more advanced concepts. These videos are MUST watch!
