I installed update 1.3.1 over 1.3.0 to see if it resolved some the bugs that had cropped up.
I took Tejanahawk to Area 51 for some testing...big open spaces, clear weather and Tejana's relatives are there
Airport elevation 4400ft
Gross weight ~ 6800lbs
Rear tank empty.
Due to airport size a lengthy taxi time was required and temps stayed fine. Takeoff fine, I don't think the coolant got above 110 C @ takeoff power.
Airspeeds seem more 'normal' now.
Level at max climb power setting, auto rich, cowl flaps on climb setting.
Level at max cruise power setting, auto lean, cowl flaps on cruise setting.
Climbs with tempatures cooler than pre-core update.
Vy Climb *note this altitude is about where max climb power begins to fall off.
Per Scott's request in the Core update thread, I climbed to 16,000 and entered a dive. It did indeed pull to the right.
Power required for landing seemed more 'normal' this time too.
All in all seems most of the bugs have been fixed. The jacks issue appears to be fixed, as I was able to jack the airplane, raise/lower gear, and remove jacks fine. Carb heat seems to be a little goofy but that has already been noted I believe. Pinging sounds after engine shut off still sound like switch 'click' sounds instead of the pinging sounds heard in the P-51.
Seems things are mostly back to normal. Thank you A2A team for your hard work.
