Re: Minor observations

Flying a real C172R in real life for almost five years I never experienced a foggy canopy. You've probably also never experienced hypoxia, but they still model it. I've also never seen this kind of fogging in real life either. Vents closed up, OAT at 39° F, and a warm body just sitting there in ...

Re: Piper Comanche 250 Full Review

Excellent review! In fact, I'd go so far as to say this is the best aircraft review I've ever watched, bar none. Not perfect, a few errors and procedural oppsies, but nonetheless excellent viewing, jam packed full of information, acknowledging the system demands, and thankfully not the usual 'this a...

Re: SCREENSHOTS

Hello everyone! Picked up the Comanche yesterday and took alot of pictures. On one of them I decided to crop out the FSX background and put in a real background from my local airport. I think it turned out pretty cool. :) Credit for the repaint goes to Flieger-Marius! Excellent job! And I love that...

Re: Custom Interior: Download now available

I have to confess that I don't see the attraction that many seem to see in wood trim in aircraft. In a classic Jaguar, Yes, but (for me at least) not the fantastic Comanche. Each to their own, of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. However, I LOVE the seats and fabric trim here, so I'll be...

Re: SCREENSHOTS

Just a few shots to say Thank You to JanKees for this lovely N8125P retro green scheme. (Apologies for the quality of my pics - I reckon with the amount of jagged edges I need to up my antialiasing or something, but FSX is running sweetly and its only in screenies that I really notice them.) 1. Awai...

Re: Finished Repaints

Here's N8125P Happy flying, JanKees I'm going to be very happy flying N8125P - just the kind of retro texture I've been waiting for. She looks good in the sim, although I haven't taken her up for a blast yet. Later, I keep saying to myself, I have to eat first ... then I stare at it some more and a...

Re: Canyon Run - a nice route recommendation

Good trip, nicely documented. I have thought about doing a Columbia River run before, but never gotten around to it. Maybe the Comanche will finally inspire me. Mine is currently sitting at Grand Canyon, hoping to break some flight rules and drop down into the canyons tomorrow.

Re: Finished Repaints

same scheme as before, but different colors and registration. Any takers? Oh yes please. I love these older paints, and the off-white contrasting against the classic green is really superb on this Comanche. I've just nabbed the registration on FSE so this will become my own personal Comanche (virtu...

Re: Different Avionics Stack

That is a mistake, with the comanche, you get the Narco radio stack... Yes, the guys at A2A may be streets ahead of any other GA developer so far as their aircraft development is concerned, but when it comes to cutting and pasting from their previous manual, there are numerous errors and confusions...

Re: Leaning for landing at high altitude

I knew someone would have the scientifically tested method for my dilemna :wink: But seriously, this is more or less what I'm doing, so thanks for the confirmation that there's not much more to be done other than trying to lean for cruise at pattern al...

Re: Closed Traffic in the Comanche

... and keep in mind: pitch for airspeed, power for descent rate. If you find yourself fast on final, pull the nose up, simultaneously cut power to allow the aircraft to continue to descend, and trim out the control forces so that your airspeed is fixed. But I'm an amateur, so I'll allow the profess...

Leaning for landing at high altitude

I'm fairly comfortable with the whole idea of leaning generally, and thanks to 3 previous A2A GA offerings I've learned a lot more. But I've just landed the Comanche (wow, what a beauty, and a smoooooooth flyer beyond all expectations) at Grand Canyon KGCN which is at an altitude of 6609 feet. I did...

Re: Request for an EGT Reference needle in the Comanche

I'm inclined to keep the needle as it is... Scott. I'm inclined to agree with you Scott. Much as the needle is useful and what I'm used to having, I love that the Comanche doesn't have one and therefore throws up as slightly different challenge. It makes this aircraft unique, personal, and, let's f...
