CBB Posted December 27, 2010 Report Share Posted December 27, 2010 I have tried to resolve the following with Goflight, Project Magenta and Hi-Fi (Active Sky Evolution), but they cannot help and I was pointed in the direction of Pete Dowson who they say uses FSX and ASE and Goflight hardware. > I am having a very odd problem with the start-up of my Goflight MCP.
