Carenado PA32 Saratoga Disconnection

Carenado PA32 Saratoga Disconnection

Postby Joerg Picard » Sat Mar 09, 2019 3:58 pm

Have been flying successfully with Carenado's PA32 Saratoga SP v3.2 in X-Plane 11. It's officially supported only up to X-Plane 10.5 but with the exception of a few quirks, it is a great flying experience in X-Plane 11.32. I've just added PilotEdge to my simulator and it everything works as planned for the first 10-15 minutes. After that, the service stops working. PilotEdge is still connected (at least that's what the plugin says) but I can neither hear nor can I be heard when trying to talk to ATC or listen to their ATIS. Reloading the current aircraft throuh the developer menu in X-Plane let’s me continue for another 10 minutes or so.
There's no such issue using the stock C172 that shipped with X-Plane.
For some reason, attaching files doesn't seem to work for me. Here's the one line out of the "PilotEdge_stderr.txt":
MessageControler: connection status = 45: Couldn't read [vspro.pilotedge.net:5558]
I've tried pinging this address without a problem, also Cessna 172 doesn't disconnect.
Here's the "PilotEdge_out.txt":

Make sure the alternator is on and that your battery is charging, that's the most likely culprit if your comms are only working for 10 minutes before dying. You can monitor battery voltage through the xplane data output page.

Wow, that might have been it. I’ve been always flying with just the left switch on because that’s what I’ve got in my real plane. Just finished an half an hour flight with both switches on and had no disconnections!

Thanks so much

Joerg, that would absolutely be it. Don't ignore the alternator switch if it's right there :)
