Re: Full forward on yoke won't stop ballooning.

To me, something is definitely off if full opposite control can't arrest the "ballooning" from a configuration change. Perhaps a tech topic to have the gurus check your control assignments?

Re: Wind gusts in P3D just unrealistic?

Yeah, it is a game of balancing the totally unrealistic up-/downdrafts and wind gusts in P3D to have at least something but not too much of the wrong thing. I've had positive experience so far with RealTurb addons that work in addition to the Active Sky, taking the prevailing wind and the terrain in...

Re: A question about the Lockheed Constellation

The simplest explanation boils down to simple issues: fans need huge amounts of power when pushing large mass flows of highly accelerated air. We've seen piston engines of up to several thousand horsepower but they tend to be unreliable and cumbersome in airplane applications. And when speaking of u...

What do you guys think of a Piston-fan engine?
It’s like a Turbofan, but is powered by a piston or a radial engine.
Oh dear lord no... :wink: :D

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

From the VOR, radial 308 outbound till 8 DME from the PAZ VOR/DME , while descending to 15000 ft. Then a left turn to establish final approach course by 10 DME from the ILPA ILS DME , staying at or above 15000 until intercepting the glideslope by 7.2 DME, again from the ILPA. So note that there are...

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

In fact, there is a given procedure for that kind of approach. Usually the proper ways to enter a given procedure have been figured out for you, removing the need for trial and error. Often there is a racetrack pattern instead, or sometimes a procedure turn. https://dl.dropbox.com/s/vqbyzgqw47jhwgj/...

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

Pat, UGKO VP 342/[email protected].2nm TBS 113.70/[email protected].4nm UGTB This flight plan does not include an ILS. TBS is a VOR station, not an ILS. You intercepted and tracked inbound the TBS VOR Radial 313 (313-180=133 Omnibearing). Nice job. Thank you guys for the further explanations. The Instrument Landing Syst...

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

Yeah! I have seen those circled little tower so that is the G/S source, cool! I learned to see PAPI lights to get the glideslope leveled from ILS gauge. Not easy for me (lol). Pat And then you will find out that the PAPI and the G/S don't always agree with each other. :) There are multiple reasons ...

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

Hi Esa, Thanks for posting explanations of signals source. Patricio No prob. As you wondered where the G/S signals came from in particular, for sake of it, try to spot the source yourself next time visiting an airport. :) Nowadays it is usually a small tower with (typically) three distinct antennae...

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

I understand and I don't (lol). OK, if the G/S technically is considered a navaids then the Localizer too because both are detected from the Connie radios. ILS sends signals to Localizer from the end of the runway, right? If so, where is G/S signals coming from? I think this part of Classroom is mo...

Re: getting sunrise and sunset times fronm FSX

Yeah, I don't know how many if any changes to the Sun angles have been made in P3Dv2 thru v5. It's been years since I've last used the original FSX, so I can't say that positively. I live at about 60¼° north, where I find the position of the Sun to be more or less correct in the sim. However, timing...

Re: getting sunrise and sunset times fronm FSX

While twilight, and dusk/dawn periods often are not true to life, I've found the Sun's 'schedule' to be at least somewhat accurate in FSX and its descendants. Is there any specific situation where you find it inaccurate? Please note that if using sim's local time , the time zones are indeed inaccura...

Re: Continuation of Propliners

I'd love any properly Accu-Simmed commuter or business aircraft. It does not have to be bush-capable but should do short runways and small airports with relative ease. Maybe an old-school King Air, or Cessna SkyCourier perhaps. It should do both self-loading and bulk/pallet cargo, and be capable of ...
