  1. What's new in this club
  2. Hi All. Is it just me or is the Dihedral Angle of the the AFM Mooneys wings off? It seems to me that the wings are too flat causing the wingtips to be too close to the ground. Its really noticeable when looking in VR. I would love for a correction to be made! I'd like to use this aircraft to make a home cockpit but the view out of the side windows is not believable at the moment. :( Anyone know if AFM is aware of the issue? Thanks.
  3. Thank you much for the rapid response and your help. This did the trick and problem is solved. Like I said above, I was one of your first subscribers, beta version, and this is the first that I fly the plane since those early days and I must say it's come quite a long way! She flies beautifully and I appreciate the added menu features. Thanks again for the help.
  4. Ah, I see - it is a simple file directory problem. Please move the AFM folder so that the path looks exactly like: X-Plane 11/Aircraft/AFM. Right now the path you have set is X-Plane 11/X-Plane 11/Aircraft/M20 3.0.3/AFM/ Just moving the AFM folder should get you back up and flying! (note this directory dependency is being worked on so in the next version the AFM folder can be anywhere in the Aircraft directory and any subfolders within)
  5. Thank you for the response. Please see attached for log.txt Log.txt
  6. Can you upload the log.txt file that is generated directly in the X-Plane 11 folder after loading the aircraft?
  7. I was one of the earliest subscribers and I recently updated to the latest version, but now when trying to load the M20 XPlane crashes before it loads anything. All other planes in my fleet still work fine. Any advice?
  8. Hi, That's why I can't find it-I always hide the yoke,Thanks Ashley
  9. Hi Ashley, You can find the speed brakes switch located on the left side on the pilot’s yoke. It is a small red button.
  10. Hi, I've just started using the Mooneys and have noticed there is no speed brake switch in any versions. IRL I believe it is supposed to be an on/off switch,the electronic indicator and animations on the wing work OK Ashley
  11. Hi Ashley, I have responded to your support email, hopefully we can get you flying in no time.
  12. This bug is being worked on in the v4 update
  13. So everything seems to work except the glareshield will flicker on and off but wont stay on. The actual instrument lights work fine. I am having the issues with all three models.
  14. Hi, I have purchased this item today and installed the AFM directory it to e:\x-plane 11\aircraft starting XP11 I am asked for password which I cut and paste OK the authentification program reponds success XP11 then crashes-logs attach for xp11 and m20 collection if I then restart the PC and xp it again crashes Can you help , I can;t see how to place attachments on this site Thanks ashley sear
  15. Hm, that seems like there may be some plugin trying to take over the autopilot or something, is anything like that installed on your system?
  16. TODAY IT WORKED! For awhile. I pushed the ap button several times and then it stayed on. I was able to do heading mode, fly ILS and GPS approach. Once while on the glideslope on the GPS approach the AP went off but by pushing the button once it came back on and finished the approach. Then I switched to a different airport and the autopilot refused to connect. I can't think what I could be doing wrong?
  17. I appreciate your help as this is frustrating. Still no joy. I'm running X Plane 11 on a single computer with 3 screens. Attache are a CH products yoke and Saitek pro rudder pedals. I also have a wireless keyboard and a second wired keyboard that has keys assigned for various functions. The computer is just for X Plane and has minimal other software. I tried deleting the prefs.txt file as suggested, but no change. Just to make sure it wasn't something weird in my hardware I disconnect yoke, rudder pedals and wired keyboard. No change. Besides the Autopilot everything seems to work fine, both manually operated on screen or using dedicated keys on the keyboard. I would really like to fix this as many planes I fly in real life have a similar equipment setup. The plans I fly very from 6 pack with gns430-530 and various bk and stec autopilots, also Avidyne glass instead of 6 pack as well as g1000. I like to fly approaches and SIDS and STARS. One of the main reasons I bought the AFM M20R is that it is a higher performance (faster) airplane. This is what I'm used in the real world and keeps me on my toes with operating avionics automatically, not having to ponder what knobs to dial and buttons to push. Thanks again for your help.
  18. That is definitely odd. Are you using any switch/ap external panels? I am trying to figure out what would interfere with the AP to cause it to not engage. Can you try deleting the M20R_prefs.txt file in X-Plane 11/Aircraft/AFM/M20R Ovation II and see if that stops the issue?
  19. Okay, I just tried straight and level "hands off" push autopilot button and AP flashes for 1/10 of second. Autopilot show Rol, Pit, 3900ft, YD So I tried doing a clean install of the M20R. Same results. Just so you know I bought this about 3 months ago so have only been using version 3.03.
  20. I don't have any control forces on the yoke or pedals. Before I did my original post, I tried trimming the Ovation straight and level and when I push the autopilot wouldn't go on. What does happen is AP flashes, YD goes on and whatever other settings, usually roll and pitch. I will try again with straight and level flight, trimmed out, with my hands and feet completely off the controls. Just so you know I am a real pilot and have been using XPlane since version 8. The G1000 autpilot in the Ovation 3 works fine, the stec 55x in the stock 172 works fine. Like I said I am stumped.
  21. These are being worked on with our new FMOD sound pack
  22. The interior is being revamped and we will make sure this included in the update
  23. Yes, that bug is an odd one that is the top of the list for updating in the v4 cycle. Thank you for the screenshots!
  24. That sure is weird, can you confirm that you are holding no control forces on the yoke when actuating? Significant forces will disengage the autopilot.
  25. Some minor things I've noticed: Parking Brake - it would be nice to have a sound assigned to setting and releasing the parking brake. Landing Lights - no sound associated with switches when using keyboard (when mouse operated produces clicks) Flaps - would it be possible to have flap switch sound only activate when the flap can be operated (raised or lowered) from current position? ie, no sound when raising flaps if they're already raised. Autopilot Disengage - could use an AP Disengage warning.
  26. The O2 control is difficult to set when flying at night. It would be a nice improvement to have the gauge/controls illuminated for this. I fly the Acclaim mostly, not sure if the other models could use this improvement as well. Thanks! -Drew
