    You're right - everything is OK. I had gone into FlightSim on an old computer at work, which leaves a lot to be desired, and obviously something strange was happening with it. They've got some...

    So glad you're enjoying it. I thought so, and am surprised that they can give it away as a freebie. I downloaded some other liveries, and if you know how to make the simple changes in your panel.cfg...

    Using trim for landing

    The trim controls are only used to relieve tension on the yoke. You wouldn't pass a PPL in real life by landing this way. I think you need to check the calibration and sensitivity of your yoke, but...

    Resolution

    4.7 Megs/pixel doesn't make sense. You can set your resolution, depening on your sound card and monitor, in the hardware options of FS. I think the 4.7 Megs refers to the maximum memory that FS...

    Old faithful FSNav

    I got it working, based on your suggestion. How? Why? I don't know. But this is what I did.

    Question about old faithful FSNav

    I know that a lot of us FS2004 guys are still using FSNav, which remains one of the best navigational addons for FS9. I have tried to update my database with the FSNavDBC utility, which always...

    Computer for FS9

    I fully concur with the previous comments, and feel that firstly, if you have a limited budget, don't consider FSX. FS9 has got so many addons and scenery and stuff that you'll probably get more...

    There seems to be a definite trend for FS2004 users to be moving towards FSX. Probably the logical reason behind this is that the modern computers can now cope much more adequately with FSX. At one...

    Good questions. Radios DID NOT go out. Didn't check voltage/current. It HAS occurred with other planes. I'll check this out thoroughly when it happens again and report back.
