Re: The Cardiologist vs. The Mechanic

I'm a Chrysler tech. I was at a Chrysler training center in a driveability class about 20 years ago and we were standing around a Dodge Neon with it running and discussing compression tests. Compression gauge is out already, the instructor hands me a spark plug socket on a ratchet and tells me to pu...

Re: Tips on starting in cold weather?

If it does start ok but slows and dies after some time then you can use the turbos for carb heat and they will likely stay running.

Re: A2A Planes for new 2020 Flightim

Thanks for the screen shots, Rob. I have my sensitivities dialed back but not as far as you. I had just flown the Pitts for the first time on Thursday and didn't think it's roll rate could be correct. I'll move my settings around and try again.

Re: A2A Planes for new 2020 Flightim

In the meantime, I've gotten fond of the Pitts, as I think it flies just about how I'd expect a 1600 pound airplane with 260 hp to fly. It's my "Cub-like" sightseeing airplane with no navaids and it cruises at 150 KTS. I also like the Citation CJ4, again because with a bunch of RW time in Citations...

Re: Need a bit of help from someone up and running in FS2020; subject, controller assignments.

I've also configured my stick and keyboard assignments to be the same as FSX. I was surprised that the controls weren't the same, and I was also a bit surprised that it had no idea what to do with my stick at all. I had to assign the throttle and all control surface axes manually.

im going to do a short test flight over to Indiana and try to land.
Don't know how far into Indiana you're headed but there's a big runway at Grissom Air Reserve Base (KGUS) that would be good for practice.
