I have been experiecing the same problems with this panel. Every time the engine 2 is started, with the strobelights on, the panel starts flickering, shortly after, flight sim just crashes! I have no explaination, I have tried all the fixes, except for the reconfiguration in the fs9.config file, not the main Flight Sim file, I can't find this file. I also have the Virtualcol Fokker 50, and genrally experience simular issues with not being able to change radio frequencies, autopilot not being able to activate it, etc.
Has anyone identified the cause and has anyone come up with a fix for this program, or does anyone know of another Fokker 50 panel?
