  1. What a night I think, I'm going to lose my drivers license and all just because of a stupid police officer... The conversation went like this, when I got pulled over in my truck: Officer: "License and registration, please, I think you are drunk!" Me: "I assure you, I did not drink anything." Officer: "Ok, let's do a little test! Imagine driving in the dark on a highway at night, when you see two lights in the distance. What is this?" Me: "A car." Officer:"Of course! But which one? A Mercedes, an Audi or a Ford?" Me:"I have no idea!" Officer:"So, you're drunk." Me:"But I didn't drink anything." Officer:"Okay, one more test -- Imagine, you drive in the dark on a highway at night, and there is one light coming at you.What is it? Me:"A motorcycle." Officer:"Of course! But which one? A Honda, a Kawasaki or a Harley?" Me:"I have no idea!" Officer:"As I suspected, you're drunk!" Then I started to get annoyed and asked a counter question. Me:"So..., counter question -- You're driving in the dark on a highway at night and see a woman on the roadside. She wears a mini skirt, fishnet stockings, high heeled shoes and only a bra as a top. What is this?" Officer:"A prostitute of course." Me:"Yes, but which one? Your daughter, your wife or your mother?" Things went downhill from there and now I have a court date to attend...
  2. Would you tell me the make, model of the screens?
  3. Thanks for your info. Very helpful.
  4. I was referring to the number of touch points on the monitor not the number of monitors.
  5. One more question. Has anyone use any small display screens to display just the engines or the ribbon display for airliners? Also I have seen on the internet small display screens that use USB inputs. Tom Johnson
  6. I am in the process of building a Flight Sim cockpit and I want to install four touch screen monitors in the panel . I will be using Air Manager to build the gauges for the touch screen monitors. While trying to decide which monitors to use, I notice that you can buy them with two touch, 5 touch and up to 10 touch screens. Is this a case that more is better? Tom Johnson
  7. I am interested in running P3D on a network. I just tried Sim-Avionics using thier software in conjunction with P3D and their 737-800. With everything maxed out to the right and all the boxes check marked, was getting 40 to 60 FPS. This was great but to buy the software was $900.00 US Dollars. Sim-Avionics was a Demo which would allow you to fly for 50 minutes at the Manchester, England airport as long as you didn't get more than 20 miles away. They will let you use the software quite a few times which was great with all the eye candy turned up. I have iFly and PMDG planes and I am not able to run them on two computers. Please inform me of any other software or planes that I am able to use and not have to spend $800 to $1,000.00 US Dollars for. I am also thinking of buying the Airliner X cockpit from SimSamurai. Has anyone got any thoughts or suggestions on this, good or bad? Tom Johnson
  8. I have a copy if it is not against the law. I can upload it to some ones one drive.

  11. Well I got everything installed and it works great. One thing I did find out was change to Windows power option so I would not be power limiting the CPU. Thanks to ON THE GLIDESLOPE for finding this problem with X-PLANE 11 update. I have all the sliders full to the right hand and still keep above 20 FPS. I move the sliders to the left one notch and I am back to 30 FPS. I spent about $2800.00 and I think it is worth. I did already a ASUS 1080 ti so the over all price would of ben close to $3600.
  12. I had this problem and opened Orbx FTX Central and ran Airport Elevations Corrections. The problem disappeared.
  13. The system I just ordered and will be here the last of this week is as follows: i9 9900 K CPU Asus Rog Maximus XI Asus Rog GeForce GTX 1080 Ti DirectX 12 STRIX-011G Gaming 11GB Switch from the old computer Corsair Crystal 570X RGB Mid-Tower Samsung 970 PRO Series - 1TB PCIe NVMe - M.2 Internal SSD Black/Red (MZ-V7P1T0BW) Patriot Viper Gaming RGB Series DDR4 DRAM 3600MHz 16GB Kit - Black - RGB Color Profiles Corsair AX 1220i Power Supply Three BenQ 31.5 " curved Monitors. Existing CORSAIR Hydro Series H110i AIO Liquid CPU Cooler, 280mm Radiator, Dual 140mm SP Series PWM Fans, Advanced RGB Lighting and Fan Software Control I hope that this will cool the CPU with it OC to 5.0 If not I will have to upgrade. Do any of you use P3D Pro Plus. I have rented it but have not taken the time to set it up. Tom Johnson
  14. Right now I am using the following: Intel i7-5960X OC 4.4 32.0 GB Memory Win 10 Pro 64-bit 1080 TI not OC Asus Rampage V Extreme Corsair H110 Liquid CPU Cooler I bought the GF Airliner system with the GF Pro yoke and the GFRP-2 Rudder. I am unhappy with the yoke. It has to much dead band sideways and push-pull. It also sticks. The other day I smeared petroleum jelly on the yoke surfaces and it helped. I also re-did the springs and installed rubber bands on the elevator pots inside to reduce the dead band. I would like to get YoKo the Yoke in the future. Tom Johnson
  15. Sorry , this should be in Hardware. Would you please move to the Hardware forum. Tom Johnson
  16. I should of also asked, I will be running P3D V4 with this unit. Tom Johnson
  17. What are your thoughts on the i9 9900K CPU and an ASUS Z390 Motherboard? Tom Johnson
