    Default Failure problem

    For no reason at all, the GPS goes black and stops functioning and the autopilot switches turn off, whilst the aircraft continues flying. When I reload the aircraft it works fine again for a while (I have to reset the autopilot settings however), and then kicks out again when it feels like it. I checked the failure options, but they're all turned off so that's not it.

    This issue has been worrying me for a long time. It was happening occasionally, and was more an annoyance than anything else, but tonight was pretty bad - happening at about 5 minute intervals. I have a suspicion that if I rebooted my machine it may have come right, but didn't feel like doing this halfway into a flight. Has anybody experienced this phenomenon?

    Sure - everything is set up correctly. I think its purely computer-related. I re-booted and tried again, but didn't have time for a complete flight - but in the ten minutes or so that I flew, there was no problem. I'll try again with a freshly booted computer and see how it goes.
    Thanks

    Check the eletrical failure command in the FS9/options/assignment/failure commands

    Did the radios go out as well?
    What did the voltage/current gauges read?

    Does this occur with all aircraft or just 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.
