Thanks! Of course, now I wonder what RealAir intended with her Spit. Their Spit flies faster rolls only with the rudder than with ailerons... Nevermind, the Spit and the Me from Shockwave are some of the best investions for FS as I still fly them very often even after months (and I own about 70 gb o...

Thank you very much for the detailed answer. I understand now.

Being a virtual airliner pilot I am used to well trimmed planes on well established glidepathes... ;)

You say you don`t need full trim? Then you have to pull the stick back during the approach. I always trim so that the plane flies the approach downwards on its own. Nevertheless, I don`t think that in the real thing you would need the whole trim range just to keep the plane leveled between 90 - 100 ...

Pitch trim with flaps down and gear down

Flaps and gear do produce a very impressing pitch down tendency. I need the full range of trim upwards to keep her controlable during approach. I don`t think it is realistic that you have to set maximum elevator-trim upwards, or is this intended. I can only compare with the high-praised RealAir Spit...

Ups.

Solved it with a hint from a colleque of mine. Don`t know why, but the corresponding effect-files obviously got lost. Very strange and I wonder what else might be missing now!

You could delete this thread now as it is not helpful for other people. Sorry again!

All lights are gone

Suddenly, all the lights (navigation and especially the VC-lights) are gone. I can push the corresponding buttons in the cockpit or use "L", "Strg + L" or "Shift + L" but no light would illuminate! Same is true for the Spit, but in her case the navigation lights work. Very strange as I own these bir...

No Track IR, Steve. Track IR will be the next investion after FSX. I still fly FS9 because Microsoft didn`t really tweaked the features that determine the flight model or in other words: FSX cannot simulate more than FS9, everything depends on the addon developer`s work. One single thing that is a r...

I have got EVERY version and official addon for Sturmovik. I know how good they are, regarding only the flight dynamics (for me the most important point as I ever, even in Sturmovik, was just flying around peacfully with all these different planes) nothing comes even close. Good luck for your next d...

Nice to read, but this is all just a dream for me! I only have an old notebook with a 64 mb graphic chip, I can hardly fly the Spitfire (the Messerschmitt makes some few fps more), the Spit in FS runs with maximal 15 fps, 11 - 12 most of the time. The RealAir is much less demanding on my system. No ...

Great deal!

Now, I have so many spits in FS (RealAir, Just Flight, Aeroplane Heaven), and this has definitely the best atmosphere. And the atmosphere is shockwave`s unmatched specialety, on my opinion. There are many versions of the Spit and the Messerschmitt 109 that I also own from Shockwave. These one simply...

First impression: Nice, very nice! Glad to have it. Thanks again to everyone that helped. Nice to have you as part of the shockwave family Sebastian. :D I play BOBWOV here. If you want an excellent combat flight sim try it! 8) Hope to see you in the BOB2/wov forums.. Last night I even apoted anothe...

I recently did some flights with Emil. Something that still doesn`t work is the tail-wheel-steering. The only way to turn the aircraft is to use differential braking, but shouldn`t make easy rudder-steering it either? The other thing is the lack of substantial rudder authoritiy. The only other warbi...

FSX, what is that? :P No, I am a fs9-pilot. My detail settings are rather right-hand-sided. Yes, I have three variants, E3, E4 and the tropic one. So far, I am always flying the E4. Are there differences between the models? I already mentioned a slight difference in the E4-cockpit which has two diff...

Thanks for your detailed answer! To point 1: Exactly right, these two techniques are basics for bush-pilots. The point is that emil isn`t capable of doing forward-slips. This doesn`t has to be a flaw since several real planes cannot perform forward-slips. Between different simulations there`re disti...
