  1. Hi Jan - that is great news! (I don't suppose there is any timeline for these yet? ) Thx! Jim
  2. I love the -733, and I was wondering if you all at IXEG would consider completing the Classic series be creating a -400 and particularly a -500 model(s)? I would love it and buy them immediately, as I'm sure many others would as well! Thx, Jim
  3. Hi TomK - for me, it's been all about the altitude restrictions. If it says 18000A, it causes an extreme delay in descent for getting on glide. If I code it to 18000, it tended to work better with the older version and stayed on glide a lot better after changing all Above to the specified altitude instead. I've made a couple of flights since updating to 1.31, and it hasn't worked as well-->had to use VS to get to different altitudes necessary to get her back on terra firma, alternating with VNAV. Best of luck with re-coding all this! Jim
  4. Yes, VNAV descent is definitely still wonky....have had to use VS to get to/stay on glide. I do hope this will be fixed when the FMC is updated. Great plane overall though! Thanks for your hard work on it, Dev Team! Jim
  5. THANK YOU!!!! I just did a perfect flight from KLAX-KOAK in VR, running 11.50b9 - fantastic aircraft....I wasn't expecting this update today, so again, thank you guys very much!!!! Jim
  6. Hi Cameron - the installer throws an error that it cannot create the directories when I run it. I run it as administrator....any ideas? "Error creating directory E:/X-Plane 11/Aircraft/X-Aviation/M20 Collection/M20TN Acclaim" Win10 latest version, 32GB ram, MSI Gforce 2080 TI w/11GB VRAM Thx, Jim
  7. LOL, Nick! I hear you....yeah, I'm sure it would be a challenge to do that one, but I've asked for it before on this thread (several years ago), and nobody has done it....I have zero experience with livery painting myself.... Jim
  8. How about SWA's "Arizona One" repaint.....please?!!!
  9. Hi Jan - I've tried activating the AP immediately upon takeoff then hitting LNAV and VNAV, and it seems to do better...past couple of flights have gone OK. With VNAV, I've found that if an attitude is listed as 20000A, the plane will not descend unless I change it to /20000, and do it for all "A" restrictions listed, the plane will recalculate to hit those altitudes on descent to follow the profile correctly....more testing/flights to come! Thanks, Jim
  10. Hi Tony - yes, I have the full goflight airliner captain setup including trim wheels. I also have a switch on my yoke for stab trim and one for aileron trim. I'll do another flight and if this happens again, I'll try your idea... Thanks, Jim
  11. Hey Jan - OK - some more weirdness.... 1. sometimes the trim wheel sound is constant when it's hardly moving or not moving. 2. last two flights, VNAV was buggy - had to switch to VS 3. last flight - LNAV was problematic....it seems that it doesn't like to track more than a 90 degree turn after takeoff....last flight was a 180 turn once airborne. Specs: XP11.32r2, Win7-64, 16GB RAM, GTX 970 w/4GB VRAM, 3.5Ghz intel CPU. Jim
  12. OK, thanks Jan, and I'll let you know if further issues crop up. As we know, XPlane is an ever-evolving platform, keeping you devs on your toes! Jim
