Re: Pitch angle with gear and flaps

The nose movement is instant and when you grab the flaps, you can rock the nose up and down using the flaps as if there is a direct connect between your arm and the nose position. This is one of my favorite characteristics of the Comanche. Manual flaps with this instant reaction. I'd love to try th...

Re: Rain inside the flight deck in P3D v5

I think disabling the enhanced atmospheric option will correct this. In any case, it is a bug in the current P3Dv5 release. There is not much to do except to wait for the next patch.

Re: Will the Aerostar 600 be available for FSX?

The F-105's were my favorite to work on! There is just 'something' in that generation of jets. Too bad I've only seen them in museums. -Esa IMO The Century Series jets were the most beautiful combat jets to ever fly. At least the coolest looking. Still had some that romance of flight in their desig...

Re: Will the Aerostar 600 be available for FSX?

Not quite my point how many gun kills they managed in Vietnam, nor did I claim the gun a "golden chalice". Hastily declaring something obsolete before the fact, on the other hand, is what I'd consider ill-advised. I'm not saying that I don't agree with A2A's decision. In case the FSX starts to becom...

Re: Will the Aerostar 600 be available for FSX?

[..] and guess what? I just completely uninstalled P3D from my computer a couple of days ago, with zero regrets, to make room for MSFS. I have preordered my Premium Deluxe version, and await it with baited breath. FSX is stone age in terms of technology compared to MSFS. You're argument is as akin ...

Re: 8.33 KHz comm spacing in P3d5

Nice, let us know, if you will, what's the answer. :) Could be some P3D thing, if they indeed merged the .000 and .005 (etc). Has anyone attempted how some frequency on 8.33 kHz spacing comes through to a set tuned to the same frequency spaced 25 kHz, and vice versa, with real aviation COM radios? I...

Re: 8.33 KHz comm spacing in P3d5

Well, I quickly browsed through some of the stuff I had at hand (I haven't yet recovered my full document collection after my mobo decided to start rejecting certain RAID drives). There appears to be nothing too funky about 8.33 kHz channel spacing definition. Perhaps the most confusing thing is tha...

Re: 8.33 KHz comm spacing in P3d5

They simply skip some that won't come up. It should be trivial, probably via rounding to the count, but I haven't checked if this is always valid with every channel. Certainly, if I did run into a problem, that would be something I checked the first, for this very often in general is not the case. I...

Re: 8.33 KHz comm spacing in P3d5

But Treetops has actually hit on what the problem is. The way that 8.33 KHz comm frequencies are implemented worldwide is that the actual frequency and the displayed frequency are different, because some of the new frequencies are irrational numbers (like 1/3 which repeats indefinitely as a decimal...

3. The RXP GTN trainer does not support 8.33. RXP is working on it. (Confirmed by RXP support)
I'm pretty sure I've successfully tuned such frequencies in RXP GTN. One needs to change the appropriate setting in radio options somewhere in the units' configuration menus.

Re: Curiosity about the real-world accuracy of the STEC

Some of my favorite VOR to VOR sim flights are in Alaska. So, long segments and fairly large magnetic variation. Back when I first discovered these navaid updates, they did make a significant improvement on how the VOR radials intersected in the sim versus the charts. I am not sure how up-to-date th...

A Small bit of positive Aviation News during these depressing times

In 10th of June, 1965 - believe it or not - the first automated landing by an airliner in scheduled revenue flight was performed. In 4th of November, 1966, this was first done in actual CAT II/III conditions. These were performed by Hawker Siddeley Trident. It took more than five decades for a passe...

Re: Will the Aerostar 600 be available for FSX?

I know....but the reason I’m not using P3D is not the price of P3D, it’s the price of the PC I need to run it.. How are your specs? While there are probably some "absolute minimums" that are higher for P3D, for instance the graphics memory in case of v5, I've always had better performance out of th...
