Re: Cooling engine for oil dilution?

I put the Mustang at Laramie Wyoming where it was -7.5 C with a calm breeze of 3 kts. I auto started and warmed the oil to 77 C. I moved the radiator and oil cooler to full open. At 1000 RPM I ran the engine for more than 6 minutes for zero drop in oil temperature. At1500 RPM I ran the engine for 3 ...

Re: Kneeboard Checklist for the B-17G

Something about their points glazing over if they are left running and RPM is low enough that they aren’t producing a current.

Re: My New C172R

Hi Graham, did you run the update after you installed the aircraft? I didn’t see you mention that...or I just missed your mentioning!

You can find a link to the update above the threads, in the pinned section.

Re: Constellation or Stratocruiser

I would add my voice to Mickel and Lewis! I have well over 1.000 hrs on both the B-17 and the Stratocruiser with just the one throttle. The 2D interface via the “shift +” key combination makes this easily done. It just requires a bit more thinking ahead that will quickly just become second-nature. Y...

Re: B-17 Released for Prepar3D v4/v5

Hey Preston,

The latest I saw on this was to try turning on or off dynamic reflections in your settings.

Re: Did 2WW aircraft actualky have ILS ?

I would like to complete a project I started around six or seven years ago, basically a navaid scenery overlay for the bunchers and splahers. You can find,on-line, rudimentary maps of their positions but very little information about their precise location or their frequency. Bunchers and splasher w...

Re: Prop Overspeed On Takeoff?

Hi Curt, it is possible to take the props over 2500 with full throttle but I think you need the turbo selector set to “10”. Is this where you have your turbo selector or do you have it limited at “8”? “... For short field takeoff, the manifold pressure may be set to the maximum war emergency setting...

Re: Optimum Runup Settings Bonanza

Hey Gary, its been a while since I’ve flown the Bonanza, so you can choose to try, or discard my settings. After start the prop is full forward and mixture full rich (unless airport elevation requires leaning). Throttle is set to produce 1000-1200 rpm until engine oil is 75 F or 24 C. I do lean the ...

Re: P-51D at Innsbruck

I did not know that was a Tom Weiss! I know I keep saying this but, the clarity and detail and the crispness in the lines of your screenshots is really terrific! I mean, when I first look at them, I think you’ve just been out plane spotting! 😎

Re: suddenly running out of fuel: harmful for the engine?

I wouldn’t think so, Zacke. Its such a momentary occurrence, normally. The oil pump is engine driven, the propeller is still turning the engine over so oil pressure should still be present. Its a good question, though, so maybe a resident expert will weigh in. Meanwhile, an interesting and accessibl...

Re: Did 2WW aircraft actualky have ILS ?

Check this out from 1943:

I think there is quite a bit of argument about whether it was used in wartime England, but I haven’t found anything definitive either way.

Re: Bravo Zulu on the B-17

GL_64, you can’t really go wrong reading and re-reading the manual provided by A2A. Even though I’ve flown it for over a thousand hours, I always have a copy of the manual at hand. You can use the checklist provided or search online for USAAF B-17G manuals that will have a checklist to follow as wel...

Re: Going around the world in the A2A Piper Comanche 250!!

Seems like a good plan! Doing a long trip in one aircraft will definitely push back the boundaries of your knowledge and skills, so you have a great, learning adventure ahead! 😉
