P40 Warhawk around Orbx 61B Boulder City Airport

As a thanks for the generous gift of the P40, and with the latest Orbx airport hot off the presses, I went exploring the desert and canyon scenery. If you want to check out the airport itself, go over to the Orbx forums, but this video shows there is a lot more than just the airport to explore, and ...

Re: The Wright Brothers DID Invent the Airplane

Well there's a body of evidence that a NZ inventor actually flew a controlled heavier than air craft before the Wright Bros, and wasn't there something recently on TV about evidence that another inventor in New England or Canada somewhere had flown for a long distance down a river corridor and press...

Re: Which procedure would be preferred IRL...?

I've found the best way to get comfortable in the circuit is to go into failures and disable all instruments. Then practice a few circuits flying by MK1 eyeball alone. After that you should be doing what a pilot should be doing in the first place, flying the plane, instruments only there to act as a...

Re: CH yoke and rudder peddles issues

Yep all the CH stuff plugs directly in. The yoke and pedals must be 8 years old now, so a good clean is due. That's why I was asking for a link to cleaning advice...

And thanks for the info DVM I shall go to my local electronics store and get some non lube cleaner.

Re: CH yoke and rudder peddles issues

My pots are getting very jumpy nopow.

Can anyone point me to a safe cleaning technique (youtube video would be ideal) and/or:

Where would I get new pots? Some forums I've read say it's difficult to determine the specs of the pots and CH doesn't give the info out.

Re: A2A Christmas sale?

You know you can buy the Bonanza and be flying all you like for about the cost of a dozen coffees or a couple of mid range restaurant meals? I uess it's all about priorities but sometimes when you want something it's worth paying for.

Re: Je suis mort (I am dead)

There was insufficient time to survive, hence I am morta. it was a matter of just 2-3 seconds only. Perhaps with a little more altitude I would be alive today to argue the point further but alas I am not.

Je suis mort (I am dead)

This report is coming to you from beyond the grave, however let it be a lesson to those who are still living... I had just taken the rented Bonanza out and taken off from Anuradhapura in Sri Lanka and headed to the east coast to land at Trincomalee, a beautiful harbour and town popular with visitors...

Re: Flaps efect

Well, when I'm in the circuit for landing in the Bonanza, and I have selected flaps, pretty quickly I need to add a bit of power to avoid going too slow. I must admit I haven't done any tests of flaps vs no flaps but I seriously doubt A2A would not be modelling the correct behaviour. With the higher...

Re: New Monitor

I bought a Philips 40" 4K monitor with a resolution of 3840 x 2160, and with my GTX970 it struggled in denser scenery like Orbx TE Netherlands, but I have since upgraded to a GTX 1080 and I can't fault it. yOur GTX 1070 shouldn't have a problem handling 4K, as it is only one step below the 1080.

Re: Next generation of P3D

You paid for a flight simulator that you can use until the cows come home. End of. You want a newer better flight sim? You pay. End of. Unless of course you can find a way to develop and upgrade the product that costs LM nothing in wages and other costs, in which case LM would love to talk to you ab...

Re: Accu-Sim Bonanza in development, cockpit first look

Looks fantastic.

Can I make a request that the curtains have an on off option in the control panel? Often times I fly for VFR and maximum all round visibility is important in these flights.

Thanks
