  1. Thanks jRollon To Cessna729 Some of the equipment I bought used. The expensive Precision Flight Controls are the older Serial version but work flawlessly in xPlane 10 (win7). The challenge was to find a compatible Serial Card as new PC's no longer come with serial ports. The Pokeys interface costs only 50 Euro and can control 55 inputs / 55 outputs and a slew of LCD displays (no programming needed). I wrote a tutorial on its use on the "other" forum. The Teensy controller has ($24) can control 46 inputs /outputs and a bunch of LCD displays (but you need knowledge of Andruino programming
  2. I'm very happy and thrilled to hear about the progress! jRollon, you're my hero !!! If you need help testing on compatibility issues, let me know. I use the : Saitek Radio Panels (Com1 / Com2 / Nav1 / Nav2 /ADF / DME / XPDR) Saitek Multi Panel (Autopilot Panel / AutoThrottle / Flaps control / Elevator Trim ) Saitek Switch Panel (Cowl / Magnetos / Starter / Batteries / Light controls / De-Ice / Landing Gear) Precision Flight Controls (SERIAL professional Flight Control Console with integrated Yoke) Precision Flight Controls (SERIAL professional Rudder Pedals) Precision Flight Controls (SERIAL
  3. Happy New Year !!! Would it be possible to release a version of the wonderful Jetstream with DEFAULT datarefs? There are quite a few users of SAITEK and other 3rd party Com/Nav controls who face the same problem. I spend “mega bucks” on my custom cockpit and the use of a mouse or keyboard is not practical and virtually impossible in my configuration. I wish there was some hint or symbol which would give the buyer a clue that an aircraft uses non-standard datarefs. This comment is not meant in a negative way ( I admire your work and attention to detail) but it becomes very frustrating tha
  4. Congratulations with the wonderful plane. The paint job, detail, flight characteristics are AWESOME Unfortunately there seem to be some incompatibility problems with users who uses SAITEK Panels. The SAITEK PRO FLIGHT RADIO PANEL suppose to control Com1, Com2, Nav1, Nav2, ADF, DME, XPDR. The displays show the correct frequencies but none of the frequencies can be changed using the Saitek Panel. (when turning the frequency knobs the frequency briefly changes but jumps back to it's previous setting) Notes: I have a slew of payware and freeware aircraft and besides the "Mentor", this is the o
  5. Finished the BAF livery Thank you so much for creating this outstanding Aircraft P.S. I attached the screenshots The livery can be downloaded here:forums.x-plane.org/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=16618 Belgian Air Force DC-3 60 years of Belgian Air Force Livery This livery has both front and aft doors and has been slightly weathered The livery is intended for use with the SUBERP Leading Edge Simulations DC-3 This payware aircraft is available here: http://www.x-aviatio...&products_id=84 Instructions: Unzip the “BAF_Dakota.zip” into your liveries-folder To REPLACE the standard prope
  6. Good morning, I'm in the progress of creating a BAF livery. This livery has the aft cargo doors. Your paintkit fuselage shows 6 windows but when the plane is rendered it shows 7 windows ?! Magic ? Am I overlooking something ? I'm not sure what file is used to render the 7th window or where the "alpha channel" for the cabin windows is loacated. The problem lies that the DC3 with cargo doors only has 6 windows, so I need to find a way to delete the 7th window (located next to the hinges of the cargo door) Thank you so much

    Flaps Problem

    Thank you so much! Changing the parameters in planemaker solved my issue. I started making a BAF livrery this evening. SEE ATTACHED PIC The front and aft doors are finished Still need to remove the 7th window and apply some more weathering as those military birds do not seem to be "polished". Quite of few more warning labels and mrakings to add. Will keep you posred. Marc

    Flaps Problem

    Thanks ! and I'm impressed with the quick a thorough customers service I'll give that a try. (after I cut some grass ...) BTW I'm using a Precision Flight Console. Marc
  9. I just installed the fantastic DC-3 I first thought that the flaps did not work but I did hear a quick "click sound" The flaps do work but at approximately 0.3 degrees per click. This means that I have to click the flap lever about 100 times .... not very practical. I rebooted the machine (Win 7 -64 bit, I7 with 16g mem, Nvidia GeForce 560 with 2G ddr5) but with the same results There is NO other software loaded on that machine besides, Xplane 10, winRar, winZip, Acrobat and a couple of xPlane utilities. Thanks
