Re: Strange Boxes instead of digits in KAP-140

From another thread in the forum: make sure you have the “high-resolution 3D virtual cockpit checked in Aircraft settings“. Or it could also be a font that has gone missing. I’m out of ideas if it isn’t one of those two possibilities except...always load a default aircraft before loading an A2A airc...

Re: Take off - having troubles

There is another really great place to specifically practice your takeoffs and landings in California, just East of the San Francisco bay area. Its called NASA Crows Landing and its identifier is simply NRC. It features two long runways in a scissored configuration so you can takeoff, climb out, cle...

Re: A question about the Lockheed Constellation

I think the Connie does not go into beta because A2A has faithfully adhered to the capabilities of an early Connie. The 049 initially did not have “reverse” props because that wasn’t available until later in the development process.

I’m just speculating here though! 😉

Re: A question about the Lockheed Constellation

By the manufacturer’s specs the Constellation is faster by a small amount, but there are the usual caveats to those numbers since there was no advantage to running either aircraft at its max. In a way, they represent two different philosophies with the Strocruiser being focused on luxury and the Con...

Re: How to clear "stuck" USB assignments

Thanks Masterius, my CH controllers also fall asleep reliably during long flights so I’ll look for this and give it a try. 👍

Is it possible to increase the text size of tooltips?

Tooltips might not be the correct name, but when I mouse over a gauge or switch in the T-6 text appears in a bubble and displays the current value or condition of the the gauge or switch setting. Is there a config file I can edit to enlarge (maybe even bolden) this text? I really struggle to see the...

Re: don't forget to celebrate your successes

In these days I think we MUST celebrate, safely of course, OUR successes in all aspects of OUR performance; whether it's a perfectly level shelf or homemade apple pie or fixing "that leak". AND whether it's YOUR OWN, or family and friends. I think "this is how we stay bright, remain strong and rise...

A quick internet search turns up this: https://hariguchi.org/flying/download/checklist-pa24-250.pdf I don’t have the Comanche so I can’t vouch for the accuracy of the above to the A2A Comanche, but I make my own ...

Re: deicer pressure gauge without function?

My understanding is that the suction gauge should be steady and that the de-ice pressure gauge would fluctuate positively as the boots are cycled. If the suction gauge is not steady ( not indicating suction) then the boot(s) are not intact. Good question, Zacke. Maybe someone with more in-depth know...

Re: flight planning: wind, flight level, route , fuel, time optimum

Hey Zacke, try this link https://ww2aircraft.net/forum/threads/l ... ual.22092/ for the C-69 manual...some of the charts in the back may lead to more ideas for cruise profiles. Its the military version so you might not find much for cruising above 15.000’.
