  1. Flying Bath Tub

    This video appears to be a montage of a series of different flights, some of which appear to have a dummy pilot and not a real human. This is evidenced in the contraption having some serious weight and balance issues in several shots, but flying high and smooth in others. Other shots seem to show the head of the dummy sitting at strange angles with the head mounted camera pointing at strange angles that would catch more cloud than anything else. There also appears to be insufficient battery stowage to power the motors for the required lift over the flight duration. All in all a nice spoof of an old cliche, but I’m not sold.
  2. Pilots Register

    On the Forum Home Page, just above the various Forum sections, there is a LARGE ATWC banner with the words, "Click Here", in the top left corner. If you click on it, it will take you to all the necessary information regarding the ATWC, including links at the bottom to the "Intro". In the "Intro" it explains clearly how simple it is to register. Just in case you still can't find it, click on this link,
  3. PC Upgrade

    Martin, All’s well that ends well, but I think you severely understate the magnitude of the upgrade on your graphics card if the old card had a VGA connection.
  4. Identifying one's position

    That is because the LNM installation process is not a true installation, i.e. it just copies the files into the specified directory structure. You need to create a Shortcut on the Desktop. This Shortcut needs to point to the littlenavmap.exe.
  5. Try a Google search! You might find this, but don't hold your breath. www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_YYSwXn3fQ
  6. Carenado - Synthetic Vision System

    Neither the Carenado web site or SVS documentation specifically mention licence renewal. However, the cost of the product is a licence, at approximately US$10 a year, to access the SVS cloud service which provides the 3D terrain data. The SVS uses WebSimConnect, a software framework for developers, to connect to the SVS cloud service. All Carenado G1000 equipped aircraft have been updated on a “fitted for” basis to use the SVS cloud service. As for aircraft by other developers, those individual developers have to enable their products using the WebSimConnect framework for the aircraft to access the SVS cloud service. So, on that basis, there cannot be a generic product fit.
  7. Bigger aircraft are coming to Inverness.

    Yeah, looking like the forlorn puppy in the window with his sad face, droopy ears, and sloppering, moist tongue hanging out.
  8. Bigger aircraft are coming to Inverness.

    So I guess this means you can get to the flight sim show at Lelystad more easily.
  9. Breitling DC3 World Tour

    I know someone who would love to do a review on that chronograph, but he would also want it given to him for free.
  10. Runway & cliff 'excursion' in Turkey

    So if I dive feet first, I guess that's called a "jump".
  11. Guess the Aircraft

    Matt, I'll beg to differ on both the designer and aircraft name. I think you will find the designer was Ottone Baggio and the aircraft is the Baggio Il Gallo. Gallo being Italian for rooster, and the aircraft does the regular airshow circuit in Italy. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baggio_Il_Gallo
  12. Considering you had been back on the site multiple times in the 24 hrs since the solution was posted, including reading this thread, and raising yet another detailed problem in another thread (don’t you just hate Forum tracking), I guess work must get real busy for you on Sunday’s too. The posted solution is not a “suggestion”, as you put it, it is a permanent fix, otherwise I wouldn’t have wasted my time. I know this because I spent a good part of that time into the small hours testing it before posting the solution.
  13. I’m so glad I could solve your JF DHC-1 Chipmunk fuel problem for you. No, really, don’t mention it, the pleasure was all mine. I enjoy nothing more than to spend my time solving other people’s problems for them, sitting up into the early hours responding, rather than going to bed and worrying about it in the morning, just so an immediate fix was provided for you. But to not even receive a simple acknowledgement or thanks. Good luck with your next problem, but don’t expect the same level of assistance to be forthcoming. In future you might find more than just a simple fuel problem driving you nuts!!!
  14. Guess the Aircraft

    Obviously, my answer was nothing to crow about.
  15. The JF DHC-1B Chipmunk is meant to supply fuel from both tanks and does not have a fuel tank selector. The only fuel control is the fuel cock, to the left of the control column, which only switches the fuel supply off and on. Such problems as you describe, are normally a simple issue with the [fuel] section of the aircraft config file (the [fuel] section is towards the bottom of the file, just before the [EFFECTS] and [airplane_geometry] sections. In this case, in order to correct the problem, make the following edit: number_of_selectors=2 (on install, it is set to 1). IMPORTANT NOTE. Exit P3D before making this edit. Only because if you make the edit whilst P3D is running it takes a while for the sim to recognise the change. The JF DHC-1B-2 Chipmunk (bubble canopy expansion pack) has a fuel selector lever in place of the fuel cock to switch between the two tanks and switch the fuel supply off. Consequently, the above edit does not need to be made to the aircraft config file for this aircraft.
