Re: P-40 unstable?

Nice! The Bonanza's one of the few I don't have... yet. Yes, loving the P-40. Just complex enough to be fun, but still capable of a short flight after work before bed. I was reading the training manual for the B-26 Invader on a flight to Chicago last week. Man, that plane's got a LOT of systems to u...

Re: P-40 unstable?

The Periscope manual is a reprint of the Training manual I have. It's actually a training manual for all versions of the P-40, which was up to N by 1943. In comparing, what A2A calls the "Reserve" tank is the "Front Wing Tank" in the manuals. Thanks for the links to the threads, I'd searched but not...

Re: P-40 unstable?

No fuel in the Fuselage tank? I've been meaning to discuss this, but, the USAAF P-40 training manual (1943) states that it's required to use the Fuselage tank for take off as it's the only tank which is vented, IOW, it's got an overflow fuel line between the tank and the carburetor which carries exc...

Three Monitors over Megascenery Earth NSW (Picton) The alignments match better in real life than the screenshot for some reason. Realism is unbelievable. https://i.imgur.com/95LgMrfh.jpg What graphics card are you using? I'm using a GTX 1050, and with these models, maybe earlier, too, nVidia offers...

Re: Rest of the War Birds for P3Dv4

Here‘s an idea; I hope I am not going to be clobbered... As I understand that A2A is a company that wants to make a profit and keep its owners and employees in good financial health, I sympathize with the decision to focus on the lucrative tubeliners and some GA aircraft. However, looking at this...

Re: P-40 unstable?

Nope, haven't had any issues like that for me. Plane is very stable in flight. No trimming issues for me either. My issue is getting over the top in a loop without going into a flat spin, but I'm sure that's me (I almost got it the other day :) ). I had an issue like that when I was flying the HD OZ...

A key doesn't work to switch views?

Hi, This is very likely user error, and I think it happens in several A2A planes, but I just noticed it in the Piper Cub, and it may only be in this plane, but... When I use the A key to switch between from Hand Start to Virtual cockpit, I end up with the wait circle, and performance in FSX basicall...

Re: P-40 pilots needed to defend Pearl Habor!

Realizing I'm quite late to this party... How did it go? Did it happen? Did you commission any historical photographers to record the event at all? Interesting I don't know that I've ever seen much in the way of payware WWII Japanese aircraft. Maybe I just haven't been looking? Would love to see a H...

Re: SCREENSHOTS (FSX)

Yes, I love that nVidia implemented the surround in even their low end cards (This computer has a GTX 1050 in it), and it works great. What I do need to do is copy your manuals over to my tablet though. So much to learn. So many planes. So little time... :shock: :D

Training Flight out of Haleiwa Auxilliary 12/5/1941

Re: Should I lean mixture while using carb heat?

Well, yes,... in fact, if you think about it, adding carb heat would automatically lean the mixture, as the air would expand and effectively become "more air" as it heated up, more so than the fuel would expand... so, again, no, I wouldn't lean the mixture when I added carb heat. You've got it wron...

Re: Should I lean mixture while using carb heat?

I think a point is being missed here. The original question was: Should the mixture be leaned in the event of carb ice? The thought being, well, we are often told that using full rich mixture cools the engine to some degree, and as we lean the mixture, the cylinder temperature will rise. The issue t...

Re: tried everything I know

You should probably post this in the Cherokee 180 tech support forum instead of here. It's extremely unlikely this is a computer hardware problem. It's more likely an interaction with something else you have installed in P3D that's interfering with the dll's (external programs) A2A uses to circumven...
