  1. I'm looking forward to this. I've downloaded the NOTAM from 2019, and been practicing the approaches. On the 21st I'm planning on flying from Aurora, IL (KARR) (an Orbx freeware airport) to Oshkosh about 11:00 PDT (1300 CDT). Anyone interested in joining me? Ken
  2. PilotEdge will be releasing a freeware scenery for the area. Only time will tell how good it is.
  3. This offer applies to Iceman, or anyone else, too. Don't know where you are, but if you can use the yoke and pay the shipping costs, you may have it. PM me. Ken
  4. I have a Saitek yoke you may have. I tried it for a while, but hated the huge null zone. Never could manage a crosswind landing. Went back to the CH. When that wears out I'm considering the new Honeycomb. Anyway it hasn't been used much. Now here's the problem. You're in Australia, I'm in the USA. I've not an clue how much it would cost to ship it, but I guess I can find out. I don't want money for the yoke itself, but if it proves feasible, I'll send it if you pay for the shipping. Note that during this pandemic, getting post office service may be difficult here. Limited or no customer lobby service. Ken
  5. I hope so too! Fly in-out KFAT a lot and would love to see it by Orbx.
  6. If you can, make a back up (preferably on an external drive). You can delete it later. While I "❤ed" Terrible T's comment, I am agonizing over converting to P3D. My FSX runs beautifully except in the area around L A. My problem is with my immersive cockpit. I have lots of hardware, and of course all that hardware has software that drives it. Will that be compatible? How many hours (and hours, and hours) is it going to take to get it to work, before I give up, spend $100s on a replacement that may not work as well as what I have now. My FSX computer was built by JetLine, so when I take the plunge I have help and support, but I'm still dreading it! Ken
  7. Sorry, left this out in my comment. Also those Orbx products not yet compatible, most, if not all, will be fairly soon. My issue is NOT Orbx. It's with software that drives my cockpit hardware. Ken
  8. A few are not (yet) compatible with P3D v5. But they are with P3D v4.5. I'm also on the cusp of moving from FSX to P3D, and very concerned about compatibility of my cockpit and its necessary software, so I've been dragging my feet on this. But Orbx is the least of my worries. For the record, I think I will go for 4.5. Ken
  9. If you fly only within the regions you don't need it. But outside of the regions it is essential in my mind. Also makes the regions blend seamlessly with the rest of the scenery. Ken
  10. I'm very dependant on many of these airports too. Would hate to lose them.
  11. This is also a favorite of mine. But also KBLU, and KSTS. There are others. I'm going to update from FSX to P3D v5 very soon, and I hope that the wonderful Orbx scenery that is not yet compatible will be soon.
  12. Good flight is good therapy. Happy to hear you're doing better. Hope it continues for a quick and complete recovery.
  13. I do, and I remember how wonderful it was at the time! And crude as the display was by our standards today, this was a pretty amazing product for its time. We've come a long, long way, but those of us who are old enough remember how great the early versions of FS seemed at the time. I, for one, stuck with FS 5.1 for a long time. Ken
  14. Get well soon, Benny! My prayers for you, and for all dealing with this horrible disease! Ken
