Re: Has anyone already placed an order for a Panthera?

I'm about ready to pull the trigger. I know the numbers are off a bit. Useful load is about 1100, but the fuel burn is closer to 14.5, not the 10 they advertise. The cruise didn't hit 200 knots, but it is 190+. It's spin rated, Garmin G3X avionics, ballistic chute, more interior room, and currently ...

Re: Has anyone already placed an order for a Panthera?

Has anyone heard of any news with this? Pipistrel is releasing the experimental version and taking orders here in the states. I'm looking for any input good or bad about the Panthera.

Thank you,
Curt

Re: Sirius Radio .. volume

This may seem obvious to some, but where is the Wiki located?

Re: g1000 attitude indicator replacement

I've seen Garmin's new GI-275 advertised, is this an option too? It looks like it would be a great option.

Re: Nav data update for G1000 simulator

I was able to guess at it and was right. The fc_tpc file on the SD card gets copied to the above mentioned folder, winfs_mount folder. The approach charts are contained in the fc_tpc folder. The mistake I was making, was how I arrived at the correct folder location. You have to go through the file e...

Re: Nav data update for G1000 simulator

I finally got around to reinstalling the software, then copied the above mentioned files. Everything seems to work, but no Flitecharts? I have the subscription, but which files do I need and where do they get copied to?

Re: Nav data update for G1000 simulator

Ok, so I was able to unhide the files and uploaded them into the winfs_mount folder. The dual trainer opens, but I get this error message on the PFD and the Navigation file isn't updated on the MFD. Any ideas???

Re: Nav data update for G1000 simulator

Ok, guess I'm dumber than I thought. When I downloaded the latest Garmin database files, the only thing I see on the SD card is fc_tcp ldr_sys .evidf.dat I checked on the box to show hidden files, but this is all I saw. Under the fc_tcp is has a folder named Charts. Inside there is just that, files ...

Re: Nav data update for G1000 simulator

Thank you for the version 12 update. For me, that was the easy part. Now, how do I get the latest databases into the program? I'm running Windows 10 pro, but have the compatibility mode set to Windows 7 per Garmin's suggestion.
