Re: Have the turn coordinator physics been improved?

That's the one thing the Piper still lacks IMO is proper physics on the Turn Coordination Gauge. The Ball is always about centered, even when I apply lots of Rudder with little bank. Must be very hard to get this one hard.

Re: Bought the FSX version, using P3D

I made EXACTLY the same mistake as you :/ I went so fast to buy the CHerokee, that I didn't check I was buying the FSX version, when I actually wanted the P3D Academic. I sent an e-mail to c172rebate, not sure it's the correct way to contact them for this, but I hope they see our posts as well and w...

V2.0 is a whole new plane regarding Left Turning Tendencies!

I felt the need to create this topic to congratulate the A2A Team on the AccuSim V2.0 update for the Cessna. I gave the Cessna a quick spin, without any hope that there would be major change in the FM, but as I was climbing out, with my friend Jose Monteiro watching my Screen on Skype, we both were ...

Re: P3D2.2 combo winner with C172R

Prepar3d V2.2 is ready to receive all the developers attention! It's a beautiful sim, running very efficiently!

Re: C172 always banks to the left

Yes, the ball simulation in FS really is strange, I also think it's not showing us the true slip of the plane. As is yaw in many planes, it never seemed right. Regarding these airliner, it's way beyond my knowledge, but I have read the same, in a multi engine aircraft, you fly with a slightly wing l...

Re: C172 always banks to the left

I don't have any C172R flight time, and it's something I always made clear. The only Cessna I fly is the little C152, with a very very weak 110HP engine. But I do fly two others with 160 and 180HP engine, and I believe planes have the same laws interacting regardless of the manufacturer. I can get y...

Re: C172 always banks to the left

Forget it buddy. I tried talking to them, but for the devs here the left banking is realistic, despite some of us trying to talk every argument there is to prove otherwise. You could check the topic I Created to discuss this, http://a2asimulations.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=108&t=38785 There's a link...

Re: I know This has been asked before, but PLEASE fix the to

My biggest issue isn't the money, since I believe anyone can make a 100 dollar saving a month, and in 6 to 8 months you'd able to buy that yoke, but the space it needs over your desk. There's no way I can use that without making my computer desk a permanent simulator rig. And that's something I'm no...

Re: Gyro drift

The C152 from my Flight School has a Gyro that will Drift WAY more than those formulas suggests. We have to every 10 minutes correct the Gyro with the Compass. But it's probably some issue with the instrument that has not been addressed.

Re: I know This has been asked before, but PLEASE fix the to

Oracle is right. Without proper hardware I cannot criticize the behavior of this addon. Our PC hardware is NOTHING close to a real airplane control. We're still years away from a real ForceFeedback Yoke, with proper precision using magnetic sensors, and giving very quick react, precise force feedbac...

I will do some more testing using all my hardware, and maybe even shot a video, if I get these strange results again!

Re: I know This has been asked before, but PLEASE fix the to

I just can't use this plane for my IFR training in FS. It's impossible to hand fly a busy IFR approach, everytime I go set the heading bug, or change radios, anything like that, I loose control of the aircraft and almost end up with an anormal attitude! Is it really just me? Are you guys using AP on...
