I had the same issue. Mark has changed the rudder trim module interface so that it is integrated with Sim-A instead of the original interface using FSUIPC offsets My rudder trim module is connected to my P3D computer, so I had to install Sim-A on that computer and run the TCP_client. I think Mark is...

I confirmed with Mark that this was a recent change to correct the display in the previous versions where the ILS ID and DME was displayed on the ND.

No ILS ID/DME window on PFD v1.964 (Resolved)

After updating to v1.964 I noticed that the nav radio data (VOR/ID/DME) on the PFD is only displayed for VOR frequencies. If I tune an ILS frequency, the window goes black. I tried it at 2 different airports with the same results. The ILS is tuned and the autopilot will execute a coupled ILS approac...

I don't know what caused the problem, but disconnecting all the system boards but the MCP resulted in a normal rescan on startup. I then reconnected the boards one at a time, restarting the SysBoard Interface each time, and the re-scans were normal each time. I have not had a problem since and flew ...

The TCP_Client shows connected. All of the clients are on the Avionics computer. I have made several flights since installing v1.96 with no problems other than having to recalibrate my FI flaps gauge. There have been no configuration changes to either my P3D or Avionics computer. I was in cruise fli...

Sys Board Controller Continuous Scan - Resolved

I was about 30 minutes into a flight today when Sim-A quit working while I was switching back and forth between MAP and PLAN modes on the EFIS panel. I closed all the clients and the server and shut down the avionics computer. After restarting the computer I proceeded to start up Sim-A, but didn't g...

Thanks Michael and Daniel. I had updated the aircraft but I didn't see anything in the release notes about the flaps changes. I recalibrated the FI flaps gauge and all is good.

Cheers,

Flap problem after installing Sim-A 1.96 - (Resolved)

I installed 1.96 without difficulty and was pleased with the new tiller performance and the other updates/fixes. Unfortunately a new problem with the flaps surfaced where when I select flaps 1 the hydraulic motor runs for a long time and my Flight Illusion flaps gauge shows around 10 when the motor ...

Uncoordinated flight - Resolved

I just finished another 4 hour flight and the autopilot kept the ball centered the whole time, so it looks like whatever was causing the original problem has been resolved.

Here's an update. I found that for some reason the recall values for autopilot and flap settings were not being saved after I installed v1.93. I was getting a takeoff configuration warning horn even though everything looked OK, including the flaps gauge indicating flaps 5. I checked in the server an...

I have done some more investigating. I disabled the rudder axis in the PFC app and tried setting up the rudder with FUSIPC. To my surprise it worked, so I did a short flight. Unfortunately, there was no change to the uncoordinated flight issue. I didn't think changing the rudder interface would solv...

My PFC yoke and rudder pedals interface with P3D via a COM port using a PFC driver. PFC.dll is on the Peter Dowson page. There is no rudder entry in the FSUIPC5.ini [Axes] section; only the spoilers, flaps, throttle 1 & 2, and tiller have entries. The rudder pedals are recognized under the FSUIPC ax...

Uncoordinated flight (Resolved)

There have been some related posts on this subject, but I couldn't find anything exactly the same. I noticed recently that the "ball" in the slip/skid indicator on the PFD was almost always displaced to one side, both with and without the autopilot engaged. Appropriate rudder pressure brings the bal...

I updated all my FSDT airports and GSX software today and then did a successful push back at KCLT (It was pretty dull without all the aerobatics). I'm hoping the issue is resolved. I'll gather some more data points before I declare victory.
