Quote from: Ivo de ColfmakerJust for experimenting tried the cruise scenario at 37000 feet, with a 100 knot headwind component and a 100 knot tailwind component and was surprised to see that the fuell flow was the same
Quote from: Jeroen DI would have thought it to be quite normal for the fuel flow in both scenarios to be the same. The engines dont know about head or tailwind, it would and will affect your ground speed. But for a given configuration, (e.g. Load etc) fuel flow should be the same wherever the wind comes from.Jeroen
Quote from: nicolasIts a pity that PFPX does not offer aircraft templates tailored to PSX.
Quote from: brian747Hi Nic!Template.... That might be the problem.There are at least two possible things that might be going on, here. It may perhaps be that you are confusing the aircraft types available within PFPX (see http://www.flightsimsoft.com/downloads/PFPX_Aircraft_AddOn_List.pdf) with the aircraft available within TOPCAT? I agree that it can be confusing, not least because although both programs were written by the same person, and they can work closely together: however, they are distinct, and their aircraft lists are not the same.On the other hand, perhaps you're confusing the PFPX aircraft types that you can see in the above list (which in my version of Windows 7 are found in C:UsersPublicDocumentsPFPX DataAircraftTypes) with the PFPX aircraft templates (C:UsersPublicDocumentsPFPX DataAircraftTemplates)? Yes, I totally agree that all this isn't especially clear.... So, within PFPX, try this. From the start globe (top left), select Aircraft Manager and then Aircraft Database (NOT Aircraft Template). Then click on the New icon and again be careful to select "New aircraft" and NOT "New from template". Now enter your registration (and tail number, if you wish).Now click the Type dropdown and select Boeing 747-400 (or the 400F for cargo) and also select your engine type from that dropdown, and you should then be using the Doug Snow and Judith Blaschegg non-P**G version. Enter any other information, if you wish, and then save the result, and then try loading it as your aircraft for your next planning session.I hope that helps,Cheers,Brian[Later edit] P.S. Oops sorry, I forgot to mention:With reference to PFPX v1.16, please see this thread: http://aerowinx.com/forum/topic.php?post=21331#post21331
