    You might give a few more details, such as what MP server you're connected to, what aircraft you're using when this occurs, and are you hosting or joining an existing session, to start with. I...

    Many fine words of advice, Ian. You've done a nice job of stating the principals involved and providing some examples.

    If you change the runway numbers, then you should change all of them in the sim -- plus VOR radials and probably some other things -- since a runway number is the magnetic heading of the runway to...

    That's something I've encountered on occasion from all the MS-based sims (FS2000 on). It's usually been an unbalanced fuel load, which I generally solve by loading my default flight, then making...

    Actually, that's not really accurate, since oxygen masks allow humans to breathe, depending on the design of the oxygen system/mask, to fly at up to 45,000 feet, or so -- above that pressure suits...

    As Nels says, that standard pattern is the basis for what is flown at any airport, and ATC will use terms such as downwind and base when giving instructions. In addition to Nels' good information,...

    Added drag, while it slows you down some, isn't power loss. There might be some slight power loss from the engine temp not being optimized, but not that would match what I understood the OP to say....

    Cowl flaps won't do much for icing/power loss, and they should be open for taxiing, takeoff and climb, though once at cruise they should be closed until either you're climbing again or you're on the...

    If we're still talking about the Duke, there won't be carb heat, since it has fuel injected engines. But there should be a control, perhaps under the panel, for alternate air. Maybe the 'H' key would...

    In real life that's often caused by looking too close to the aircraft at the flare, or in many "conventional gear" aircraft it's from looking over the nose instead of out the side a bit where you can...

    Are you running Windows 10? Did you install FSX in the default location? If so, it might be a permissions problem (UAC, or User Access Control problem).
