    Yes, I remember that feat hitting the magazines. Jerrie was quite a sensation in the G.A. world for a little while. AND, that was done long before Loran was available for aircraft (huge, heavy...

    Just so you know, this probably would fit better in the FS2004 forum. Though I don't know the answer you're after, since I rarely use turboprops in the sim and have never flown a real one, I can say...

    I'm not sure why so much emphasis on the graphics card with FSX. With P3D and FS2020 it makes a huge difference, but FSX doesn't do much with the GPU.

    Each to his own. Many years ago I upgraded from FSX to P3D v2.4, added pretty much all of ORBX for North America, including southern Alaska and a chunk of Canada. P3D has progressed way beyond that,...

    To elaborate a bit on what Ray said, the quick answer is NO. The angles are not necessarily the same, even at the same airport, though the "standard" is 3º, some may, due to obstructions, terrain, or...

    Well, I've been doing it since VCs became available, so I have to disagree with that statement. However, it IS true that you have a bit different perspective on things in a VC than in the "2D" type...

    I've done that a few times over the years, and it happens because you actually released the mouse button either a hair too early or a hair too late, placing it into an adjacent folder.

    Quick and simple, you don't. Read Nels' post again. And don't expect auto-takeoff or autoland, since it won't do that.

    First, you need to set up the avionics (radios, etc.) for your specific...

    Actually, just press and release the 'R' key, which sets the + and - to apply to the Rate. Other keys set the + and - to other functions, such as tuning radios, setting OBS adjustment and more.

    I guess that's one way to put it, Charlie, but those modes don't actually use any frequencies- the NAV radio receivers DO use frequencies, but the modes are part of the auto-pilot, not of the radios.
