  1. What's new in this club
  2. Currently, Control Wheel Steering (CWS) mode is not simulated - I will work on getting that implemented in the next update which should come after the Pocket Rocket releases in the coming weeks.
  3. Regarding the Mooney Ovation 2: I don't know if this is a "bug" or a "feature," but I can't seem to figure out (from the manual or experience) how to use the KFC-225 to hold altitude and hand fly the plane on the horizontal axis. Here's an example, I'm flying West on a USA cross country flight plan. I set the KFC-225 to capture and hold 10,000 feet. The autopilot is in ROLL mode, as I haven't pushed the HDG button. Now, I want to fly from waypoint to waypoint while the autopilot is maintaining 10,000 feet. Anytime I move the yoke to turn, the AP disengages and won't maintain altitude anymore. Now, if I use the KFC-225 to hold altitude AND heading, and use the HSI heading bug to turn, the KFC-225 works as intended. I just can't touch the yoke. But sometimes, I want to hand fly, whether it's a cross-country or an approach, I just want to use the altitude hold function of the autopilot to manage the cockpit workload. The KFC-225 however, seems to require that it's either a) flying both vertical and lateral axes, or b) nothing. When I look at the real world KFC-225 operation manual, it appears to be able to function in an "altitude hold" mode only. Is this function not modeled in AFM's version? Or is this an X-Plane issue? I'm relatively new to this sim, so I'm not sure whether the KFC-225 is LR's or AFM's... Thanks!
  4. That seems to be an error with how X-Plane is handling popups - I will try to replicate and look into it.
  5. I added a second monitor this week, so I could full-screen sim on one, and have charts on the other. In X-Plane Graphics Settings I have Monitor 1 (the monitor in front of me) set to "Full Screen Simulator". The Main Monitor (the monitor to my right) is set to "Unused". In Windows, the monitor in front of me is Monitor 2, the monitor to my right is Monitor 1 and is selected as "Make this my main display". I also have selected in Windows "Extend these Displays". In this configuration, when I try to pop out the Garmin panels, the Garmin pop out is somewhere off screen. Nothing I've tried will get it to pop up on screen. This is problematic for me. If I switch the monitors around in Windows (make the monitor in front of me the main display) and reconfigure X-Plane 11 to use Main Monitor for "Full Screen SImulator" and Monitor 1 to "Unused", the popups display correctly. Is this an artifact of X-Plane itself? The AFM Mooney Ovation III? Weird interaction with Windows?

    GTNs are blank

    Hi Cooper, Thanks for the quick reply. Yep, the discussion in the link you provided is exactly what I am seeing and they don't have a solution yet...Apparently when the gtn 750 is 'fitted' into a 3d panel as it is with the Mooney, they need to be able to excess mouse pointer 'hotspots' on the panel where the touch buttons are and the current xplane vr api does not allow them to do that...yet. The workaround of just bringing out the popup in vr will work, they have the plugin set so it works for just about any plane that way...its just much so much cooler to have it in the panel with the other instruments! When I did the install and saw that (finally) it was installable into a panel...I was pretty excited....guess I just have to wait a while longer! Thank you...

    Right now, I believe there is a RealityXP issue with using their GTN in VR. One workaround that I have heard from other customers that work is to bring in the popup window into your VR space, then use that to interface with that. You can read what RealityXP has been saying here: https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/533294-gtn-750-in-vr

    GTNs are blank

    I have the GTN 750 installed per the instructions with the Mooney M2OR II (above) and it shows up in the panel in VR but the only button that works is press n' hold the home button to bring up the map page. No other buttons are pressable with mouse or the controllers. The popup plugins work fine... I have the aerobask eclipse 550 which also has a gtn 750 in the panel which works fine in VR. So I'm wondering if I missed something in the setup or if the 750 just does not work properly in panel when using VR? Thanks...
  9. That can be the problem for sure! Make sure to use O2 next time
  10. Attempting the I5 on PE in the O3. Naturally, I choose a sunset cruise, right? No panel lights. Have the rocker down on the left 'on' and have tried to turn up both the glareshield and instrument knobs. No luck. Flying blind on 2D popup G1000 instruments. What a gas! But...any way to actually get panel/instrument lights in the 3D cockpit? Note: flashlight doesn't work at all Update: Ignore this...it can be deleted...I blacked out! Forgot the O2. HAHAHAHA

    M20 Collection 3.0.2 Hotfix

    Don't have an ETA yet, but they are being worked on.

    Any news on when those sounds will be released? Love this plane, but eager for sounds. Scott

    M20 Collection 3.0.2 Hotfix

    Great! Yes i'll help beta test the new sounds when they are ready. and your right, the start new topic is now showing. Thanks. Dave.
  14. Coop1019

    M20 Collection 3.0.2 Hotfix

    Regarding sounds: Yes there is a new sound pack in the works now. Once it has the necessary sounds all working, I will make it a public beta where you can download and try out the sound pack from here. If that goes well, we will push it into a future update as default. Regarding topic creation: I believe there is a 1 post requirement to be able to start a new topic. You should see "Start New Topic" in the applicable club sections such as Bug Reports.

    M20 Collection 3.0.2 Hotfix

    I have also noticed that. One solution would be to switch to outside sound if the window or doors open. I don't know how hard that would be to implement, but I noticed the lack.....

    M20 Collection 3.0.2 Hotfix

    Hi coop. I'm not sure how to start a new topic on this forum. Maybe i need to reply first... Anyway. Still having a ton of fun with your plane. Will you at some point be able to make the sounds of the engine different depending on if your inside the plane. inside with window open. And when your looking at the AC from outside. Right now, it is the same sound no matter what view. Thanks. Dave.

    I just tested the account link and worked fine for me. Can you PM me your order email and/or order number so I can look into this further? In the meantime, the download link from the original invoice will work and give you the latest download.

    AFM Store doesn't send any email (with access link to my account). Tried two days in a row. Checked spam folder. Something broke in the store?

    Open doors in flight

    Thank you! It isn't really a big issue for me and probably for others, I just wanted to mention it!
  20. Coop1019

    Open doors in flight

    That is quite weird. We are using the default X-Plane door opening commands and open datarefs, so this is an issue with LR's replay code, and without a custom replay engine, there is not much I can do about it. Thanks for letting me know, I will do some brainstorming on this and possibly file a bug with LR.
  21. Hey Coop, just did a flight with the Acclaim and noticed that after stopping the engine and opening the doors they are even open when I replay the flight! Greets, Christoph

    Yes, it was pushed to the Testing Team on Saturday, now it is out to everyone as the update showed to be stable.

  25. Thanks for letting me know, the GNS buttons have been fixed internally and will be in the 3.0.2 fix. I will look into the GTN buttons and get a fix into 3.0.2 as well. The update should be within the next week.
  26. ver 3.0.1 Both the 530 and 430 RNG buttons show 2 click regions, for increase and decrease the range, but both buttons (on both GTNs) only decrease the range. The 2D popout (for both) work fine.
