let's be cool (or of carburators and radiators)

Isn't the left side rightmost blue lever the carburator hot air control of the air induction system (the leftmost being the cold air) ? In your bird, it's labeled as the engine cowl flaps lever and actually moves the coolant/oil radiators air scoop flap aft and below the fuselage. If i'm not mistake...

now that's more like it :D, your P51 behaves like that , thanks, she indeed does straighten herself out !

I didn't find a mention of side slipping in the "flight handbook" Gabriel put in another thread. What are the references of your manual to see whether I can buy it online ?

Nice bird...

ADF panel gauge animated ?

Am I mistaken but neither the dial nor the hand of the ADF gauge seem to move ? I get the audio all right, the tooltip shows the bearing to the station (!) but not the VC gauge :shock: .

Well, I have one heck of a time to side slip still after about six hours of flight ! don't know what you mean by exxagerated or extreme, keeping a 10/12°° bank doesn't seem extreme to me in a 16 knots Xwind with a slight crabbing to help. The plane just doesn't side slip... Maybe me, maybe be ...

side slipping ?

Got the bird ! An overall really nice implementation of the Mustang, for what I care for i.e. flight modeling and VC gauges smoothness. I like the flip over when you pour in 61 inches all dirty :D . Now I may have an issue... Don't know whether it's me or what, but I can't side slip the 51 (I can't ...

The POH says: "If controls are held in neutral, there is no tendency to spin, although the left wing drops rapidly, and the airplane will dive out and recover. "There is a pronounced tendency for the airplane to snap to the left when stalled in a turn. There is ample warning of the impending stall,...

thanks Lewis, I know about he failure feature. My question was very much about waggling wings to get the gear down. Wouldn't it be neat :lol: ?

I don't know whether you imply there that you actually fly a real life 47 but another example :

So still wondering :)

stuck gear

Wouldn't it be nice if you could model a stuck gear that could be unstuck by wiggling the wings as in the real thing ? :D

Possible within FS9 limitations ?

flight modeling : the stall behaviour

The plane is a jewel and the modeling seems to stick rather faithfully to the real flight behaviour. Something I wonder though. On Zeno's site flight training movie, the P47 is shown to stall by just dropping the nose keeping the wings balanced wehreas in a clean config the WoP drops a wing and tend...

thanks Scott Meaning that I can expect from version 1.2 the same smoothness of the VC gauges than in your P47 which is quite good ? Great plane... This is important for me as I'm more interested by your flight modeling and therefore the smoothness (precision !) of the VC gauges than by exterior mode...

P51 1.2 vs WW2 Fighters P51 : the gauges any different ?

I'm a little confused. I understand that this P51 and the WW2 fighters package P51 are not the same, the former being an update and the latter a model built up from scratch. So far so good ? Now the issue, I want my VC with the smoothest gauges like in your P47. Is there any difference between both ...
