FAQ's

General questions

FsHub (previously known as "LRMLive") is a free online service that provides virtual pilot and airline flight tracking and performance monitoring services in "the cloud", FsHub is compatible with Microsoft FS2004, FSX, FSX-SE, Lockheed Martin's Prepar3D (v1.x, v2.x, v3.x and v4.x) in addition to Laminar Research's X-Plane 11.

FsHub provides free cloud storage for your virtual flights and in-flight screenshots.

In addition to tracking and storing flight reports, FsHub also provides airport information and virtual airline management.

All data stored on FsHub can be accessed via. our API's which enables more advanced users to integrate our purpose built statistics platform.

It sure did! We decided to re-brand the site and give it a fresh look, we've kind of shifted from just supplying landing rate and flight statistics to also providing Virtual Airline statistics as well as a few other features (by popular user request).

The LRM client is a utility for tracking your flight statistics, it sends back (to our platform) your aircraft's flight position and other vital statistics such as speed and heading.

This tool must be installed and running during your flight in order to send data back to our platform which is then applied your flight log book.

More information on how to configure the LRM Client with your token can be found on the Client Documentation page.

In order for your flight information to be sent to the FsHub platform, you must ensure that you are running the LRM Client software installed on your computer and have configured it with a user token (You can read on how to do this here), the client must also be running on your PC during your flight, the LRM Client software is reading and sending all of your flight and aircraft information to our platform. Without running this software in the background Flight cannot record and receive your flight information.

If you are sure that you are running the LRM Client on your simulator then please ensure that you have FSUIPC installed (if using Microsoft FS2004, FSX, FSX:SE or P3D ) or, if you are using X-Plane you must have XPUIPC installed!

More information on how to configure the LRM Client with your token can be found on the Client Documentation page.

Pilots

This is normal and is caused by the fact that it loads your "last known location".

This normally happens if you open up the GPS Tracker before you start your simulator (or have the LRM Client running), if this happens we recommend that you refresh the page and all will then work as you require.

The list of visited countries contain the list of countries that you've landed at (visited) and does not include the ones that you've taken off from - this is by design!

You want to join and fly for a virtual airline - great! You can browse the list of existing airlines on this page. To request to join one you must press the "Apply" button, this will then trigger an email to the airline owner asking them if they want to accept of reject your application.

Once applied to a virtual airline you must wait for the airline owner to "Accept" your application before you can log any flights with them.

The list of airlines that you fly for can be found on the "My Airlines" page on your user dashboard.

Airline

You can create and register a new virtual airline from the "My Airlines" page.

In the event that you wish to move the airline ownership to another FsHub users, please contact us with the name of the Airline and the User ID of the person that you want to transfer ownership too we will then manage this change for you and reply once the change has been completed!

Developers and Platform Integration

For most users, they won't use our platform integration features but we've added them in for those people who want to use the data gathered by this platform to build new and exciting services or projects.

We provide two main types of API at this point, our REST API enables developers to programmatically obtain data on demand where are our Web Hooks API provides real-time flight and record update notifications to external web services.

More information about how to use and integrate can be found on our in Platform Integration documentation section.

Pretty much anything actually (based on the data of course) but the kind of things we expect and would like to see done are:

  • Personal website integration (show your flight hours, distance traveled, last known location, online status).
  • Open-source content management systems for virtual airlines (that integrates and receives airline flights using webhooks).
  • Online services such as "Virtual payroll services".
  • IoT and hobby projects.
  • Mobile apps.
