Aircraft suspended above airport

Postby Deltaaair123@1 » Fri May 04, 2018 1:56 am

A new problem has come up with my P3D. Whenever I load a new flight, my aircraft will start above the airport. It is just hanging in the air. I would say about 2,000ft it looks like. I’m not really sure how that happened. If this helps any, my default flight is that of an airport that is about 2,000ft ASL. The reason being is because the default flight in P3Dv4.2 prevents the atc window from being active for some reason but apparently y’all already know about that issue specifically. But back to my origional problem, any reason why my aircraft is hanging in mid air whenever I load a new flight? Thanks

Delete your default fllight from ..C:\Users\jrold\AppData\Local\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\ files prepar3d_default.fxml and prepar3d_default.wx p3d will create clean ones.

Afer deleting the files, it still uses the original and it is not possible to load or save another. P3D just exits gracefully.
