I'm a flight instructor (mostly in Piper Comanches) and decided to put together a flight simulator to use with the A2A Piper Comanche.
Where do you teach out of? It would be great to see some picts of your Comanche.

Re: Nosewheel Steering

Bernd,

That animation on the nose wheel is controlled by the rudder movements so unfortunately when you have auto rudder connected, while the rudder physics work properly the animation will not. This is how the system works, at least at the moment.

Re: First vaccine to show actual efficacy against Covid 19 developed..

Here are some very good stats for COVID-19: https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2020-05-07/comparing-coronavirus-deaths-by-age-with-flu-driving-fatalities It shows COVID-19 not all that much different than other diseases when it comes to age (which is brutal). It reminds me just how deadly th...

Re: For the Future: J-3 Wishlist for Prepar3d v4.5-5

Hi Bomber, some of the things on that list are realistic for us to make while others are not, like a maintenance hangar for example that would introduce a boat load of code. I will review this prior to any future updates though. All I would like is to be able to swap seats with Heidi, looking at the...

Re: primer only starts/draining fuel lines before shutdown

Hi Zache,

I never start my Comanche with primer only, but you could do it this way without any issue. You can also shut down the plane by starving the fuel as well without any issue. The cool thing is this all works, by design, in Accu-Sim :)

Re: First vaccine to show actual efficacy against Covid 19 developed..

Any vaccine is going to be very difficult for me to take personally especially that we now know benign COVID-19 is for people under 60. I haven't had a flu shot in over 10 years and will probably pass on this vaccine as well. However if I had underlying conditions that put me at high risk for COVID-...

Re: What happend to the F4 Phantom ?

When I think of the Phantom it was one of those projects that taught us not to talk about anything in development until it's 1-2 weeks into beta, as only then do we know 99.9% a development will become a product. It was also the beginning of learning we really can't go outside our core modeling team...

Re: Pushback

Artur, if we did this we'd do a vintage one powered by a combustion engine. This way you could start it up and operate it.

It seems i'm becoming a bit of an A2A addict! There are only 3 P3D planes I dont own from A2A. Cessna C182 Skylane Cessna C172 Trainer Piper Cherokee 180 ...My personal favs from A2A are the Comanche 250 closely followed by the P-51 Civilian, then the Bonanza. Just to give you an idea of what I lik...

Re: oddities with the electrical system

That's a good question on the inertia starter. I don't know. The direct crank starters will definitely overheat in rather short order too so we do model the heat generated with our direct starters and subsequent breakdown if you let it get to that crazy high temp. Just because this is where we have ...

Re: rpm fluctuations

I'd be willing to bet that's exactly what it is..,.speedo cable... :wink: Yes, this is what most of these old airplanes have (and cars from the 70's and 60's). The cable develops a sort of "out of round" friction where it accelerates and slows down on each revolution. It's basically just cable wear...

Re: Engine not starting

The other day I spent about 20 minutes just getting the P-40 to start with it's inertia starter. We've all been there thinking "did I flood it?" Also happened on my Aerostar recently as well. Engines especially sensitive to flooding when the engine is warm.

Re: 165 tas

Greg, when I fly my Comanche I know I can always be at full throttle regardless of my RPM once I hit 4,500 ft. On really cold days the engine may be making a bit too much power for 1800 RPM full throttle though. 4,500 RPM is my favorite "most efficient fastest speed" altitude for low RPM.
