A2A P40 and Firefighter X

Hey guys, anybody out there using Lorby's Firefighter X with an A2A aircraft? I thought it would be cool cruising along with the P40 searching for fires and eventually fighting them. But I'm curios if the Firefighter X engine does mesh with the A2A flight model (and failure model). Firefighter X inf...

Re: two oil questions

Thanks guys! So let me summarize that one: Topping up the oil via the load manager does mix old and new oil contents/qualities but does not supersede an complete oil change in the long term. Changing oil type in the hangar does replace the exiting oil content/volume with new oil but does not top it ...

Re: two oil questions

Thanks for your response, Rob. I know about the option to choose different oil types. But my questions is how to exchange to complete existing oil volume for refreshing the whole oil volume with the same grade. With the Accu Sim GA planes you do that by emptying the oil tank via the load manager but...

Re: two oil questions

And another thing: To do an oil change do I have to enter the hangar and use the oil option menu in the engine section. Or does a click in the shift-4-menu also change the oil (or does it only refill and mix it)? Thanks! Yes you have to go into the maintenance hangar to change the oil. The Bonanza ...

Re: Airspeed Indicator

Got that again today. Took out the T6 and while climbing to 12k feet - bang! While flying through cloud level the ASI went to about 60 to 80 mph and stayed there regardless of using pitot heat. No big thing because I know how my baby behaves on approach and landing even without having a working ASI ...

missing animation with some gauges

Hey guys, with my T6 (FSX:SE, latest updates) the glideslope needle and the oil press/oil temp/fuel press needles seem not to be animated (?) correctly: If the GS is coming alive or if you change frequency the needle does not move to the corresponding position but it jumps there. LOC needle running ...

Re: two oil questions

So if I fill up the oil in the shift-4-menu do the old and the new oil mix? After 5 hours of conservative flying (only patterns to get used to her) I've used up about 1/6 to 1/5 of the oil in the tank. Let's say I refill her every 10 hours or so and that mixes the oil volumes I don't need to change ...

Re: two oil questions

Thanks for your fast response, Scott. But for doing some routine stuff (e.g. filters) I think I should use it in schedule. The question is what is a good intervall for doing it in the sim. To often is unrealistic and to seldom is irresponsible concerning the filter have to be changed every 25 hours ...

Re: two oil questions

Any advice how often to visit the maintenance hangar for regular inspection? The Accus Sim GAs have 25 hours, the warbirds 30 hour for changing filters and so on.

Don't want to enter the hangar to often for realism reasons.

Re: landing light retraction logic

Indeed it's an absolutely (fantastically simulated) airplane!

No, it doesn't have to do with the engine sounds. The sound just isn't there when I use CTRL+L. All other switches have their sounds.

adding autopilot

Hey guys, there're attempts to add an autopilot and some nav radios to the P-40 (see here: https://a2asimulations.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=82&t=32778). That broad me to the idea I could also add an sextant and maybe the famous weather ship gauge. I know that's a bit exaggerated but why not. My ques...

Re: landing light retraction logic

Yes, I did so and it works. But there's no switching sound any more. Doesn't matter so far!
