Re: Majestic Q400 Pro working in P3D v3/4?

Followed your instructions and can now do approaches using the Q400. One small point, when given control the FMS is always set for an approach to LFMN and FSiPanel does not seem to appreciated that I am at a different airport. I have to program the FMS before taking control. Is that normal?

Re: Majestic Q400 Pro working in P3D v3/4?

I enclose a video of my latest attempt. Use the link above to see this. Again, the Q400 aligns properly but cannot achieve 126kts and ultimately flies past the airport.

Re: Majestic Q400 Pro working in P3D v3/4?

Hi J-P, 1. I could not find any assigned axes (slew.jpg) but recalibrated my joystick and this seemed to correct the first problem. 2. I tried an approach. As soon as I am given control the speed drops off rapidly even if I have max throttle set to start with. I also tried reducing the throttle to 1...

Re: Majestic Q400 Pro working in P3D v3/4?

I have been waiting for a response, J-P, and it would be good to know both good or bad news regarding my use of the Q400 with FSiPanel. I have been considering a reinstall of FSiPanel. Would this affect my credits? Is it necessary considering the fact that my PMDG NGXu works fine? Later today: I hav...

Re: Majestic Q400 Pro working in P3D v3/4?

Hear comes a video clip. The forum would not accept my attachment, a video created in P3Dv4 so I have put it in my dropbox:

Re: Majestic Q400 Pro working in P3D v3/4?

I have just tried again with the Rapture at Elgin, then moving to my selected position - 8 NM finale runway 22L EKCH. I am asked to adjust the throttle. I max to NTOP (90%). In the settup I have chosen to freeze my position after trimming but this never happens. Over the airport the attached snapsho...

Re: Majestic Q400 Pro working in P3D v3/4?

This has been posted seperately but under "Trimming for 126-140kts" but probably I should have added to this thread. I run FSiPanel (1.0.0.57) under Windows 10 and in P3Dv4.5 I have been using it with the PMDG NGXu and there have been no problems. Now when I try to run the Q400 PRO 1.020b I cannot g...

Re: Incomplete setup

I downloaded the latest FSUIPC version of MakeRunways (4.82) and extracted the two .exe files into my main FSiPanel folder overwriting the older versions. I then openned FSiPanel, went to Setup and ran the update database function. I noted that the MakeRunways version was now 4.87. Everything seemed...
