Just installed A2A Spitfire, Accusim for the Spitfire, and the ME-109, and the March 2017 aircraft update. Now my Cub towing arrows no longer appear on the Shift+3 control panel. I uninstalled and re-installed the cub to no avail. I have my Cubs parked in hangars in my many ORBX Pacific Northwest airports and I need to be able to tow them all out.

Hi,

Can you give us some details about your setup, like what sim you're using (FSX, FSX:Steam or P3D)? Do you have AccuSim package for the Pipe Cub as well?

Cheerz,
Will

Cub towing worked fine before I installed the three products mentioned. Nothing else changed on the computer. I do recall installing an A2A update in December 2016, I think, which may have been the culprit as I had not flown the Cub since October of 2016. I can confirm that Cub towing worked before the December 2016 update was installed. I doubt the problem is in my setup, since towing was working before the above mentioned software installations and nothing else has changed. Nonetheless, here are my software and hardware specs.

Software:
Windows 10 Pro Build 14393
Nvidia Inspector 1.9.7.6
FSX Boxed SP2 in DX10 preview mode
Steve's DX10 Fixer
FSUIPC 4
FS Recorder 2.1
EZDok 1.17
Rex 4 with Soft Clouds
Rex Weather Architect
Orbx Global Base, Pacific Northwest, Northern Californian, Southern California
Orbx HD Airports x 26
A2A Piper Comanche
A2A Cessna 182
A2A Piper Cub with Accusim
A2A Spitfire with Accusim
A2A ME-109

Hardware:
Asus Z97-WS
Intel i7-4790 @4.0GHz
32Gb Corsair Vengance Pro @24GHz
Samsung Pro 840 Pro 256GB SSD -- operating system
Samsung Pro 850 Evo 512GB SSD -- FSX and Flight Sim addons
Panasonic 128 GB SSD -- video capture
Seagate Constellation 2 GB HDD x 4 -- Data storage
Asus Geforce GTX 780 x 2 -- SLI
Samsung 23.5" led 1920x1080 2ms x 3 -- Nvidia Surround mode
