Steve,

In the WideView documentation they suggest 15 inch raise on the clients to keep them from stuttering on taxi. It's on the View Setup page.

And I am using Prosim 737 and their flight model. It has no panel.

I'll look at creating a new flight configuration. But since the aircraft is perfectly on the ground during taxi and takeoff, I can't imagine what is going on. But I am open to any suggestions  :)

Thanks

Jim,

Why did you set the client's height to 10" higher than the server?  Just curious.  I am no expert at WideView but I think they recommend the opposite, to keep them the same height or have the client's slightly lower.

Also, a suggestion to try.  May be of no value but same idea as a reboot.  Save your current startup as something else and make backup copies of all your configs etc. and then recreate your default or startup flight with the airplane on the ground, shut down, gear down, etc. at one of the airports that has caused the problem and see what happens.

BTW- if you use cockpit view and just turn off the panel itself, instead of the virtual cockpit view, you can see FPS in the 50-60 range.  At least that is what I am getting consistently.

Best,

Steve

You could pick up a second hand one that would be fine for a fraction of that price, even buying a broken PC would be better. There are so many bits you can get from so called scrap equipment.

Thought about this a few years ago and how cool would it be to have a double pain windshield that is just millimeters apart, and then in between would be the wiper arm, the blade, as well as some water sprayer/mist tubing surrounding the perimeter.

Thus, it would be a self contained, encased, recycling rain effects windshield. The water and flow (psi) would be coming from small external storage tanks, with the wiper arms being controlled by large RC motors of sorts, yet keeping them away from the water. The side windows would just be rain water only.

Regarding the double pane glass and looking through it, I don't think it would be much different from looking through the real windshields. They're pretty thick in design...look at this:

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=GENUINE+BOEING+747-400+FULL+COCKPIT+WINDOW+SET+%286+Windows%29&_sacat=0

Note: Hey Bernard, if you do not have these yet, here is your chance...lol!

Otherwise, back to Dave's idea, if we think about this concept of real wiper motion with water/rain spray, just imagine how much that would add to the flight sim experience. Additionally, it's already being done virtually through add-ons for the desktop pilots, so why not try doing it for the full size sim pilots?

Look at this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvhydZHZ9cg

Yes, it sounds kind of crazy, not really needed, hard to do, like going off the deep end, and so on; however, think about some of the other "crazy and not really needed" items that have been made, once someone does it, we wonder how we ever lived without it... :idiot:

Thanks for your reply Bernard.

I was not planning to have water, just the wipers. I am going to make false wipers out of balsa wood and they won't touch the glass, just sweep back and forth.

Regards
