    Advanced Question GPC or equiv for v. 2016?

    Hi, For shuttle landings, did the folks who made GPC MFD for 2010 upgrade it for 2016? I looked online but couldn't find it. If not, is there a new equivalent? Mostly I want OPS3 -- which gives energy and alt for the shuttle as it lands. Thanks again! --PDN

    Hi, ISS orbit was totally regular and stable. I added a bunch of addons. Now in Orbit MFD graphic, yellow solid and open circles move randomly. And ApA and PeA change. Makes it tough to sync up... What happened? Thanks! --PDN
