The spikes have not returned thankfully. I checked the temperature of the card, it runs at about 53*C before is was hitting 63*C. I received...

This could be caused by the graphics card getting too hot. The 6800GT produces so much heat! Im going to look into cooling the card down...

When PM finish some new software it will link to the stepper motors on the TQ ie Auto throttle like in the video on the PM website. However it will need an I/O board to do this. Perhaps the FDS-SYS would be capable of this??

Cockpitsonic appears to be linked to FDS. Its half the price of the Simware unit and appears to be of metal construction. Has anyone obtained additional pictures of it? Any reviews?

Rob.
