Re: Engine RPM mismatch after startup

Am I missing something? The problem is that you're missing lots. Don't take that negatively, you are making regular progress. It's just going to be way too much typing to explain all that's happening, and this thread will run for pages and pages.. but all we'll be doing is repeating what has been d...

Re: Engine RPM mismatch after startup

Okay had time to watch your video. Another interesting view... I found it quite enjoyable. I was reading FSX Navigation VOR lessons but no flying lessons in there for VOR to VOR. Considering you missed the very first VOR (and thus had little chance to find the second... and not at all on the flight ...

Re: Engine RPM mismatch after startup

I'm currently unloading passengers in Zurich, I'll have to watch the video later today.

Did you read and fly that FSX lesson yet?

Re: Engine RPM mismatch after startup

I will fly your EDDH-LSZH flight using your posted flightplan and report back. EDIT: Preflight Planning: Distance between Fulda FUL 112.10 and Trasadingen TRA 114.30 is 180nm which is too far between stations. You will loose reception between them. That's not a big problem if you have to deal with i...

Re: Engine RPM mismatch after startup

I'd also suggest you add HAM 113.1 to your route. When you take off you're likely going to be too low and too far to receive DLE. But you can receive HAM. I would proceed either directly to HAM after takeoff, or I would fly to intercept the HAM 186 Radial and then proceed south. That way you can be ...

Re: Engine RPM mismatch after startup

I've updated my navigation aids within FSX, and I also show DLE as the only VORDME in the area. Checking my professional navigation software, it shows both DLE and SAS as VORDME stations. They're 245ft apart. Skyvector shows an NDB with the same identifier as DLE VORDME but in a slightly different l...

Re: Engine RPM mismatch after startup

It sounds like you don't know how to use the course needle. You keep talking about distance from VOR's, but you never talk about course. You also don't ever mention the TO or FROM indication. You ask how you know when to turn and where. This is also the case with the videos I've seen. You reference ...

Re: Engine RPM mismatch after startup

The ground crew wouldnt disconnect without being instructed by the aircrew. --- Via cell phone or the missing GPU switch (lol)? https://i.pinimg.com/736x/16/41/40/16414096b620b04a0b7722738bcd85ab--zombie-apocolypse-apocalypse.jpg 3rd row down from the top.

Re: Engine RPM mismatch after startup

Tried to take-off from EDFE short runway 4.5K and oops .... got it up nicely. It is a high risk I think only Pilot staff can be on board with no Pax. (lol). Lufthansa repaint? I will have to find it. What about British, Italian, Swiss repaints? Did exist Connie with those repaint in real? The close...

Re: Engine RPM mismatch after startup

With Connie I would like to take-off or landing from/to Frankfurt-Egelsbach EDFE. The runway length is somewhere around 4.5K Is it OK for Constellation? Too short (you might be able to try it, but you would carry no payload and very limited range...not worth it. Plus I see no Connie sized parking t...

Re: Engine RPM mismatch after startup



Also, at LPPS try using the full runway length. Your takeoffs from there look very tight.

Re: Engine RPM mismatch after startup

You're making excellent progress. Here are some further tips to help increase enjoyment. 1. Modern jet transports park with their nose facing the terminal (often with a jet bridge). This is done for a variety of reasons. Post deregulation airport congestion has increased the demands on terminal spac...

Re: Engine RPM mismatch after startup

Somehow, close to the end of my journey I couldn't see the runway for landing and I had to save my passengers via landing in somewhere else inside of EHAM airport, crazy. Yes, I noticed that :D . Quite an entertaining landing to see from the virtual jumpseat! Allow me to give my humble opinion why ...

Re: Engine RPM mismatch after startup

Yes, the pedestal autopilot doesn't have the ability to couple to any NAV source. It also can't capture an altitude. Just as the Constellation was originally equipped.
